The Philadelphia Eagles’ coaching staff gathered around a television to watch the New York Giants take down the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card game on Sunday evening.
They were looking ahead and beginning preparations for their divisional matchup. That’s par for the course for teams with a playoff bye, but it’s not what makes Nick Sirianni’s comments on Tuesday noteworthy.
With a straight face, Sirianni boasted that he and his staff enjoyed a stuffed-crust pizza from Pizza Hut.
“I was kinda craving Pizza Hut stuffed-crust pizza,” Sirianni told reporters. “I haven’t had that in a while. That’s not something I get to get at home. So we had that.”
It’s probably something he doesn’t get at home because his family prefers flavor over cardboard. But it does seem very on-brand for the Eagles as an organization.
And let’s be honest… Pizza Hut is likely the best pizza you can get your hands on in Philly.
Maybe as the Giants’ coaching staff goes over Eagles film this week they can enjoy some Steak-umms with cheese.
