Sports Writing, 31 Jan. Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said Tuesday that “it would be a mistake” to change the team’s preparation for the Super Bowl, which his team will play on February 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
“This is the biggest game. It’s the Super Bowl. The biggest game anyone will ever have. But if you start treating this game differently, mistakes will come. It would be a mistake,” he declared.
Sirianni, who has been in Philadelphia for two years, will coach his first Super Bowl. The decision will be played at State Farm Stadium in Phonenix, Arizona.
Born 41 years ago in Jamestown, New York, Sirianni explained that he will look for his team’s preparation to be similar to what it had during the regular season in the two weeks remaining before the match for the Vince Lombardi trophy.
“We will try to keep the schedule as normal as possible in the next few days compared to what we did in the season, at least before traveling to Arizona.”
The Philadelphia coach also praised his rival, and in particular his colleague Andy Reid and the ‘quarterback’ Patric Mahomes.
“They’ve been good for a long time. They’re a great organization. Andy Reid is a terrific coach and Patrick Mahomes, one of the best players in the world,” he said.
The Chiefs will play their third Super Bowl in the last four years.
Sirianni worked with the Kansas City Chiefs between 2009 and 2012, there he met Andy Reid prior to the 2013 season; The current Chiefs coach thanked Nick because he preferred to have David Culley, with whom he had worked for 14 years, as an assistant coach.
Sirianni immigrated to the Chargers as a quarterbacks coach. In 2018 he came to the Indianapolis Colts to be their offensive coordinator.
In 2021 he received his first head coaching opportunity from the Philadelphia Egales. In season number one he led the team to the wild card game which they lost to the Buccaneers. EFE
