Eagles legend Brandon Graham ends Julian Love’s 15 minutes of fame
The two-week span that separates the NFC and AFC Championship Games and football’s biggest showcase often gives us a little wiggle room to discuss other things. The Philadelphia Eagles have already moved on from title game wins and are now focused on the next goal, winning Super Bowl LVII. We don’t play for the Birds, so we’ve been digesting everything we can find on the Senior Bowl, 2023 NFL Draft prospects, and hotel and travel prices as we near the kickoff of football’s biggest game, but we’ve been a little distracted as of late.
It appears the San Francisco 49ers contingent and the New York Giants just can’t accept their losses and move on. We understand the Niners’ heartache to some degree. The wounds are fresh. It hasn’t even been a week yet, but the Giants were eliminated on January 21st. What the heck is going on with them?
Listen closely boys and girls because this will be the last time we discuss Big Blue until after the Super Bowl. After this, we’re moving on to the Kansas City Chiefs (and we’d expect the G-Men to move on as well).
Eagles legend Brandon Graham responds to Julian Love’s comments about Nick Sirianni in true B.G. fashion.
Thursday was a busy day at the NovaCare Complex. It’s been a busy day for the rest of us as well. Players were made available for the media. There was also a bit of a stir on social media as Giants safety Julian Love made some less-than-flattering comments about Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni.
Yes, we’re talking about the same Julian Love that embarrassed himself on that DeVonta Smith touchdown catch at MetLife Stadium earlier this season. If you’re a little hazy, here’s a refresher.
If you blinked, you may have missed it. Number 20 in blue, the guy who missed DeVonta Smith AND the ball and flung himself out of bounds is the same guy that thinks he has the right to state Nick Sirianni is “in for a free ride right now”. He even went so far as to state the hosts of Good Morning Football “can coach this team.”
During Thursday’s pressers, Brandon Graham ended Love’s 15 minutes of postseason fame.
"People always got something to say when they’re at home. I just know that (with) coach Sirianni, it don’t matter. What he did last year, with a team that nobody thought was gonna do much, he ended up getting us to the playoffs. Then, for his second year, that’s what you’re supposed to do. You’re supposed to get better (and) bring players in to do exactly what you need them to do and we did that."
The ending is the best part.
"A lot of people (are) just mad because of what happened this season, and I understand. It definitely carried no weight because coach proved himself each and every day and if you’re not in here, you wouldn’t really know that. It’s just all lip service."
And, with that, as promised, we end all discussions about the insignificant New York Giants until free agency or the NFL Draft (if we choose to reference them then).
Five years from now, Julian Love will long be forgotten, and Nick Sirianni will still be coaching. Heck Jordan Love will probably still be around after Julian Love is gone.
Those are our bold predictions for five years down the road, and if FanDuel or DraftKings, or anyone else is listening, we’d be willing to drop a few coins on the wager. We wonder if Julian would bet on himself.
