Impending New York Giants’ free agent Julian Love did not withhold punches in his appearance on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football. Love joined the program on Thursday morning, and his initial comments on Nick Sirianni were mildly impudent.
Love declared that Sirianni was a “great coach” because he wasn’t “getting in the way of his team.” Love continued with veiled disrespect by praising the experienced roster of the Eagles before his true emotions were induced by GMFB’s Peter Schrager.
Schrager asked Love how he felt about Sirianni’s arrogant sideline antics during the Eagles’ 38-7 Divisional Round victory over the Giants, as the video of the Eagles’ coach slowly head-nodding toward the cameras in a boastful manner ran across the GMFB screen.
Love didn’t hold back and said “I don’t like it” in reference to the antics. Love then stated that Sirianni was “in for a free ride right now,” presumably due to the roster of the Eagles being magnificently constructed by Eagles’ general manager Howie Roseman.
The Eagles have a talented roster, and quarterback Jalen Hurts developed exponentially as a passer from last season. Everything is clicking for Philadelphia, and Sirianni certainly deserves some credit for how that transpired - he’s the head coach.
However, I completely understand why Love would be frustrated enough to make the comments he did on Thursday morning.
