Just how did Jalen Hurts feel when offensive coordinator Brian Johnson’s job was fired? What did Nick Sirianni not say?

Brian Johnson used to be the offensive coordinator for the Eagles and is now the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. That factor became very important to the Eagles’ decision to fire Johnson.

Before the end-of-season press conference on Wednesday, Eagles coach Nick Sirianni was questioned about his selection to fire Johnson. Specifically, he was asked if he talked to Hurts before making the choice.

Sirianni then avoided the problem. Later, he was asked to give a more detailed account of how Hurts felt when Brian Johnson was fired. It’s not just the individual who you let go of that feels it.

Sirianni said, “It’s clear that they are dating.” “You should ask Jalen if you have a chance to talk to him.” There are times when we all suffer when we have to let someone go. All of us. Having to fire people is the most awful part of my job.

For example, there’s a friendship between two people who labored together every day for three years and spent more time with one another than with their own families or loved ones. This makes you close and bonds you together.

“I’m not even going to talk about what every player — everyone going to be hurt by this, not just the guy who was fired. Friendships are still going strong, but you won’t see that person every day like you used to.”

“I think the hardest part of this job is saying goodbye to friends. If I could explain it in terms of people, that would be it. It’s the worst part.”

You have no idea how bad it feels to be forced to do those things. Everybody feels it, from coach to player to coach.

“Like I said, Brian made a lot of good things. And as [GM] Howie Roseman said, Brian was a big part of the games we won and the success we’ve had. We’re all sad about what happened and what’s happening now.”

So Sirianni didn’t say if Hurts was mad that Johnson was fired. And the reporters who cover the Eagles won’t be able to talk to Hurts in an interview for months.

In a way, that sequence proved that the Eagles’ loss was the work of the whole team. No one can get away without getting hurt. It only depends on how far Eagles CEO and chairman Jeffrey Lurie is willing to go.

They may begin with the coordinators, that’s fine. That’s not hard. The defense ranked 31st in pass defense during the regular season.

On Monday, Bucs quarterback Baker Mayfield passed for 337 yards. He would have thrown for over 350 yards if some of his receivers hadn’t dropped a few plays.

Yes, James Bradberry was the perfect example of what could go wrong. A year after being named All-Pro, Bradberry was taken out of the game for a series because he missed a tackle on Trey Palmer after a short catch that turned into a 56-yard touchdown.

Throughout the season, Sirianni has a 34-17 record, which is the best winning percentage in team history (.667).

He is also the only one within team history to take his team into the playoffs all three of his first seasons.

But a 1-6 record is tough to get over for a squad that was in the big game not long ago. Sirianni can stay alive in one way.

So far, Hurts hasn’t done anything to save Sirianni. It would have seemed so simple for Damages to do that.

Because Lurie gave Hurts a new deal worth up to $255 million over five years. The starting quarterback can make the head coach stay if that’s what he wants.

When asked if he wanted Sirianni back, Hurts said, “I didn’t know he was going anywhere.” Then it was told to Hurts that there had been talk about Sirianni’s job.

It was “I hadn’t heard that,” he said. Does Hurts believe that Sirianni can make things better? “I have a ton of trust with everyone that we’re building,” he stated.
