Nick Sirianni: 'It's a reboot and a reprove for me and this football team'

INDIANAPOLIS – He has a new coaching staff around him, a new season in front of him, and, soon, a new locker room to address. For Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni entering his fourth season, it's a reset.

Time to rise to the occasion.

"You're always trying to reprove, recreate, all of those things," Sirianni said on Tuesday after he met the media at the NFL Scouting Combine. "We've won a lot of football games, but we didn't win the last month of last season, so it's a reboot and a reprove for me and for this football team. I know what we can do. I know we need to improve on things. I know I need to improve on things. So, that's the task we have, the challenge I have, and this is a business of meeting the challenge and I'm up to that challenge. I'm looking forward to it.

"None of us did our jobs well enough at the end of the year last season. We have to be better. If you aren't moving forward in this league, you're moving backward."

Sirianni said he will blend his offensive strategies with that of new Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore, who has had tremendous success in his years with Dallas and the Los Angeles Chargers. How this offense will look and what it will morph into remains to be seen as the process is just starting, but two systems that have had a lot of success, combined with the talent the Eagles have up and down the offensive roster, give Sirianni great hope.

The Eagles' offense looks to soar to new heights in 2024 as Sirianni and Moore mind meld throughout the next several months developing the playbook.

"You break it down into sections," Sirianni said. "You go, 'Here's what we talked about when we broke down the passing game and this particular pass family. And then you talk about the running game and look at what each of us has done and find out what best suits our personnel. You talk about protections and the blocking scheme. Then you talk about gameday and how you're going to approach that.

"It's been a fresh way to look at things, about how our offense operates. We know we have possibilities here and we want to maximize what we're doing. He's telling me things that I haven't thought about and I'm doing the same with him. Every day we're doing that and we're talking it through, challenging each other, and I think it's an exciting thing."

The most important component, of course, is bringing quarterback Jalen Hurts back to the highest level of play, the Most Valuable Player level at which he performed in 2022 when Hurts was an MVP runner-up in league voting. Last year, there were too many turnovers and too many missed opportunities.

This year, the goal is to, as Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman said, "give Jalen what he needs to be successful in every way."

"He's played great football in his career and I know that when there were some tough times, it was frustrating for Jalen," Sirianni said. "It was frustrating for all of us. He's one of those guys who is going to do whatever it takes to be the best player he can be, the best player on the field.

"I know that when he gets here (to the NovaCare Complex), it's going to be a whole new season. That's what happens in this league. I'm looking forward to getting everyone together and starting this season and not looking back. We have to climb back to where we were, and that's why I say we are reproving everything. That's the way it is going to be for each and every one of us."
