Eagles coach Nick Siriani
If felt it was a missed opportunity to bracket the season by giving up a ten-point lead and seven points early in the third quarter and mid-fourth quarter (by turning the ball over).
Yes, in terms of spin, we can’t give such a good team the ball four times and expect to win the game. Putting the defense in a difficult position. And therefore [I’m] Disappointed in the transitions, disappointed in some of the things we need to do better. Disappointed in some down third conversions by Dallas, but the credit goes to them. Part of it is that they also perform in plays, and they force it. It’s a good football team, but we can’t help a good football team beat us by giving the ball away.
of them getting a chance to do the same thing next week that they had a chance to do this week (win on the field) with at least one report saying the quarterback will be the same. Does he see this as something they can build on eight days from now?
Yes, we will correct all the mistakes we made in this match because we made a lot of them. Playing, training, we made a lot of mistakes that we will learn from. That’s what I love about this team is that we’ll learn from our mistakes, we’ll just crave to get better. So, we’ll get better than that, we’ll see what happens as far as everything goes. I thought Gardner played a good game. On the first interception, I thought it was a really good play 27 years ago (Jayron Kearse). All due respect to him, he’s a good player. The second, the ball was in both hands and the guy was out with it, so Gardner played a really good game. But, like I said, we’ll go from here. We’ll see what happens. Like I said, with Galen, you never get over it. We thought he got a chance to play this week and we’ll see next week, but we’ll take it one day at a time and we’ll see, we’ll be better than this game.
About what was the problem on 3Research and development– and 30 transfers.
We didn’t play and the man did. It really is that simple. TY Hilton makes a really nice catch. Dak made a really great throw, and we didn’t do the job. They did and we didn’t.
On whether this result will affect whether Jalen plays next week.
If Galen is ready to go, Galen will play. He is the starting quarterback. If he’s ready to go, he’ll go. Again, like I said, it’s nothing against Gardner because I thought he played a really good game, but if Jalen was ready, he’d go.
On the team still controls its own destiny.
You know, you don’t think about it yet. We have to take these blocks that they gave us that we made ourselves, and then sit on them for a bit. Because when you sit down on them for a little bit, and figure out what happened and what went wrong, that’s how you get better. And that’s all we yearn for is the best. We’ll think about Saints after we fix the problem with this game, because I know Saints are a good team, but we have to fix the problems with this game. There is a process, there are steps, after you lose a game, after you win the game. The steps are: get in there, watch the tape, figure out what went wrong, practice playing, fix it, and then move on. So that’s what we’ll do. We’ll have to stick to this for a bit. The main goal is to get better at it.
About the loss of Avonte Maddox.
Yes, Afonte is a really good player. We’ll see what happens with him. Again, good offense. Kellen Moore, good offensive coordinator. Coach McCarthy, good offensive mind. That was a fine insult, and any time you’re without one of your players, of course it will affect you a little bit, but we have great confidence in our support. But, like I said, we have to see the tape and see what went wrong. I have some ideas, obviously, with some of the stuff that you guys talk about, but I really want to dive into tape and get better at it.
About what was the message to the team.
Hey, we win together. We party together, and we catch each other together. All together. Together, together, together. There was not a single phase that was abandoned by a single phase. It was offense, defense, training, everything. We’re in this together and the teams that stick together through the ups and downs of the season are the teams that keep growing together. So let’s go. We will find a solution. Let’s get better and better at this.
