The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the few undefeated teams in the league.
They entered the season as the No. 1 candidate to come out of the NFC again, but even though they’ve managed to get the games to go their way, some people still aren’t convinced about them.
That includes HC Nick Sirianni, who didn’t seem quite satisfied despite a big win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, stating that they’re not where they want to be yet and that they’re still a work in progress:
“It’s a growth process. We’re not a final product yet,” Sirianni said. “Everybody wants us to be a final product now, but it’s a growth. You want to grow every day, so we’re not going to be playing our best football until we get going into the season.”

The Eagles hit the ground running and started strong vs. the New England Patriots, but they let them get right back into the game and were even at risk of losing on the final play.
Then, they failed to keep their foot on the gas vs. the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2, leaving the door wide open for a comeback attempt.
They looked much better in the second half vs. the Buccaneers after a slow start, and there have been signs of growth and improvement when compared to the season debut, as expected.
Nick Sirianni also lost his two top assistants to Head Coaching positions, and it might take a while before the new coordinators get the team to where they need it to be, as usually happens.
They have a tough divisional clash on deck next week, hosting a Washington Commanders team that’ll look to bounce back from an ugly home loss to the Buffalo Bills, and that could be their most difficult challenge yet.NEXT: Analyst Praises 1 NFC Fanbase For Their Loyalty
