Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni wears his emotions on his visor. And that black hat was on fire during his team’s opening drive in the preseason opener, one that eventually ended with a touchdown.
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts was finishing up a nice scramble – his body was a full two yards out of bounds – when Jets linebacker Quincy Williams drilled him out of nowhere. The hit was late. The hit was unnecessary. And the hit should draw a hefty fine from the league office. The zebras threw multiple flags, but the damage was done.
Williams targeted Hurts in the head area on the play, a no-no under any circumstances let alone a meaningless preseason game. The cameras immediately caught Sirianni yelling at the refs with the venom of a million cobras.
His veins were bulging as his lips mouthed: “Saleh, what the f***! That’s f****** bull****!” Those words were directed at Jets head coach Robert Saleh. And it was warranted.
