Nick Siriani took some inspiration from Eminem’s “8 Mile” when searching for a way to motivate his players ahead of Saturday night’s playoff game against division rival Giants.
According to NBC Sports Philly john clarkThe Eagles’ head coach showed the team the closing rap battle scene from the classic hip-hop drama at last night’s meeting, and the players loved it.
Siriani’s message: “Let them talk. We’ll show them who toughs it out the longest.”
Fans reacted to Siriani’s strategy on Twitter.
One user said, “It’s funny because Eminem is more representative of the Giants in this scenario, but Siriani isn’t the smartest.”
“Considering putting the money on the Giants moneyline,” replied another.
Martino Puccio commented, “Maybe the funniest thing I’ve read today.”
“They are 1 seed. The rabbit lived with his mother [in] A trailer and worked at Detroit Stamping. What is this??” another fan asked.
“People forget that Bee Rabbit was the underdog…” tweeted Jimmy Randazzo.
Open mic at The Shelter begins at 8:15 PM ET.
