Nick Sirianni has a whole lot of energy!

Nick Sirianni didn’t give off the greatest first impression during his introductory press conference a few weeks back, and his overall persona still might rub some people the wrong way, but it’s impossible to ignore the insane levels of energy that the former Colts OC brings to the table.

The first-year head coach was oozing with passion during Thursday’s Zoom call, bouncing all over the place with different analogies and stories.

Personally speaking, Sirianni being excited about his job should be viewed as a good thing! The Eagles obviously aren’t in a great spot from a roster standpoint, having a coaching staff that is still energetic and committed to developing some of the younger players can go a long ways in terms of overall morale.

If Sirianni is able to translate this same type of energy onto his players and the coaches beneath him, the 2021 Eagles could come across as a whole lot more “fun” compared to previous seasons.

Sirianni is a stark contrast compared to Doug Pederson and his occasional snippiness, but the Eagles weren’t really looking for a “Pederson 2.0” this offseason. Lurie and Roseman wanted someone new and fresh, and Sirianni appears to be just that.
