How does Nick Sirianni rank versus his NFC East peers as head coach of the Eagles?

Power rankings… We say we don’t like them and that they don’t prove anything, but we never seem to ignore them when we see them. Whether we’re talking about the NFL’s 32 teams or ‘five restaurants that you should check out if you haven’t’, any opportunity we get to make comparisons is met with enthusiasm. Who doesn’t love a great debate? How many times have you asked yourselves how your favorite movie ranks versus some of the other films of its era or how Nick Sirianni ranks versus the NFC East’s other head coaches?

Even if we don’t say these things out loud or write stories about it, we spend hours agonizing over everything from the best games ever played to how we would rank some of the best television shows we remember enjoying.

How about we answer that question about Nick and the NFC East now? Much will be determined during the coming Philadelphia Eagles and NFL season, but here’s what we can say before any game is played. We know Nick isn’t in the cellar. Last season, he was the only rookie head coach to lead his team to the playoffs, and this year, he’s expected to do the same thing. That’s more than we can say for the guy in New York.
