Recapping the Giants Game

He acknowledged that the first half of the game was particularly disappointing and emphasized the need for self-reflection and improvement as they prepare for their next challenge against the Buccaneers.

He mentioned that the team will review game footage, make necessary adjustments, and swiftly shift their focus to the upcoming matchup.

“Obviously, we’re all gonna be pissed off after this game. Yes, you have to flush it, yes you have to move on, you have to flush this last month.”

Sirianni explained the decision to pull key players such as Jalen Hurts, Lane Johnson, and Jason Kelce before halftime, citing the significant point deficit and the close game between the Cowboys and the Commanders. The coach wanted to give certain players rest as the odds of a comeback seemed slim.

Preparing for the Playoffs

Despite the recent setbacks, Sirianni emphasized the team’s unwavering belief in their ability to perform. He underscored the value of making the playoffs and highlighted the determination within the locker room to give their all in preparation for the upcoming game against the Buccaneers.

“We’re in the playoffs, and we’re moving on to Tampa Bay, and everybody’s got to give everything they’ve got this week.”

He stressed the importance of unity and collaboration among the coaching staff, players, and other personnel as they strive to bounce back and demonstrate their capabilities in the postseason.

When asked about his standing within the team, Sirianni deferred to the players’ perspectives and acknowledged that the recent losses do not diminish the accomplishments and efforts of the team throughout the season. He expressed his continued confidence in the team and their collective ability to turn things around for the playoffs. Additionally, he emphasized the significance of taking each game and day as it comes rather than being overwhelmed by the overarching challenge.

Despite recent struggles, Sirianni reiterated his belief in the players and coaching staff, expressing optimism for a potential turnaround in their performance. He emphasized the resilience and determination of the team, drawing on their shared experiences and the unwavering commitment to bouncing back from adversity.

He highlighted the valuable playoff experience within the team and emphasized their refusal to give up, instilling confidence in the team’s ability to overcome challenges and deliver when it matters most.

“None of us are quitters. We all get up off the mat when we’re down, and we get up, and we keep going. When you get hit in life, when you get hit in football, you got two options — you can stay down, or you can get the F up. And I know this group is fighters. I know this group will get up. I know that we’ve all been through things in our life, that we’ve all had to deal with shit, and we know how to get up. And that’s why we’re all sitting in this room.”
