The Eagles hired Nick Sirianni to replace Doug Pederson as HC. And after a rocky start, Sirianni seems to have transitioned well into his new job. Long Time Eagle Lane Johnson says he is impressed with his new HC.

Nick Sirianni had a rocky start to his career as a Head Coach. When the Eagles introduced Nick Siriani as their head coach at a news conference in January, his performance in front of the camera and the microphone was enough to cause some people to question the team’s choice to replace Doug Pedersen.

However, after his first OTA and mandatory minicamp, Sirianni seems to have gotten more comfortable with his job. And he has won over vets on his team.

Speaking to ESPN via WPVI’s Jeff Skversky, Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson praised Sirianni for how well he’s taken command of the team.

“He’s taken great command of the team early on,” Johnson said. “I think what I appreciate about him the most is he holds everybody accountable. When we go to practice, it doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran or a rookie on the first day. If you’re making mistakes, he’ll push you on the board.”

“Not to call you out, but really to kinda get you better. What that shows, if he can do that with veterans, then the younger guys will come along as well. That’s been my impression early on. It’s been a lot of fun, really a lot of energy. Moving forward, we have a lot to prove.”

The Eagles hired Nick Sirianni on January 24th of this year, who spent the previous 3 years as the Offensive Coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts. Sirianni was the 5th new HC signed out of the 7 available spots to fill heading into 2021.
