Nick Sirianni thanks Eagles fans for showing up on the road | Eagles Postgame live

THEY ARE NOW POSTED. GIVE US A LITTLE SNEAK PEAK. >> I'M JUST MARVELING AT HIM. HE'S A GUY IN HIS ROOKIE YEAR HE NEVER WENT AFTER 52% UP TO 61% LAST YEAR HE'S NOW AT 68%. WITH TWO INTERCEPTIONS AND 230 240 PASS ATTEMPTS. HE'S NOW THE TOP IN NFL HISTORY FOR RECEPTIONS. WHAT HE'S DOING ON A WEEKLY BASIS TO GET THE BALL IN THE END ZONE HE'S NOT PUTTING THE BALL AWAY. IT'S ABOUT 67% OF HIS PASSES EACH WEEK.

HE STARTED 27 GAMES IN HIS CAREER. >> I WAS STILL IN LOS ANGELES. >> NOT EVEN THAT MANY. >> WE ARE ALWAYS IN A HURRY TO BRUSH UP AGAINST THEM. >> HEARS THE CEILING. AJ BROWN AND SMITH. HE'S GOT WEAPONS THAT CREATE SEPARATION. I THINK HE'S PLAYING SENSATIONAL FOOTBALL WITH THIS WEAPONRY THAT HE HAS MAKING IT A LOT EASIER WITH THE SEPARATION. MAKING PLAYS >> AND A RUNNING GAME. >> HE'S COMING DOWN AT 31 AND 31. LET'S CHECK IN WITH THE 8-0 START. >> THESE THURSDAY NIGHT GAMES ARE ALWAYS TOUGH SO YOU HAVE TO GET IT DONE. YOU HAVE TO GO GET IT DONE. HAVE TO PLAY HARD AND PHYSICAL. THAT'S A COUPLE OF THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT.

MAKING SURE OUR BODIES WERE AS GOOD AS THEY WERE GOING TO BE. BEING ABLE TO PLAY FAST, THOSE ARE TWO MAIN GOALS. I LIKE OUR STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING. LED BY TOM. THEY DID AN UNBELIEVABLE JOB GETTING THEIR BODIES READY TO GO. THEY WERE FOCUSING ON THEIR BODIES TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE TOP NOTCH. THAT STARTS AT THE TOP WITH AN ORGANIZATION THAT WE HAD. THAT'S THE BEST ORGANIZATION I HAVE BEEN IN. >> HE SO SUPPORTIVE YET SO MANY PEOPLE HELP US DO OUR JOB. THAT'S ON FULL DISPLAY TONIGHT. I WILL NEVER HAND THAT OUT. MR.RORY GOT ONE. SO — >> GO AHEAD. >> HE'S COMING UP ON HIS RETURN.

>> THE ONE THING I SAID TO HIM WAS DON'T LET US GET DISTRACTED YOU'RE THE LAST PERSON I WORRY ABOUT BUT DON'T LET THIS BE A DISTRACTION TO YOU YET THE SAME LOOK ON HIS FACE AS IF IT DIDN'T MATTER. THAT'S JUST WHO HE IS. >> I FINALLY GOT TO MEET HIS FAMILY NICE PEOPLE. IT WAS NICE TO MEET THEM AND PUT A FACE TO THE CONVERSATIONS THAT WE HAD. I KNOW THAT SOUNDS GOOD FOR HIM. HE'S GOING TO ENJOY THAT NOW BUT HE DIDN'T APPROACH THAT GAME ANY DIFFERENTLY. THAT'S WHY HE'S A TRUE PROFESSIONAL. >> IT'S JUST THE NEXT ONE. THIS PARTICULAR POINT — THE ALTERNATIVE OF BEING 7-1 OR 6-2 WE KNOW THAT OUR GOAL WASN'T TO GO. IT WAS TO TAKE ONE GAME AT A TIME. THAT IS OUR GOAL. IS A GOOD TO BE ALONG WITH THIS LONG WEEKEND? OF COURSE BUT WE KNOW WE WILL GET BACK TO WORK ON MONDAY AND GO ATTACK THIS NEXT GAME AGAINST WASHINGTON.

>> HOW TOUGH IS IT PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY TO GET A TEAM READY FOR THE GAME IN A SITUATION WHERE ALL THE THINGS ARE AROUND US? >> IT'S NOT A CHALLENGE WHEN YOU HAVE THE FOOTBALL TEAM THAT YOU HAVE. WHAT A SPECIAL GROUP OF GUYS THAT LOVES THIS GAME AND LOVE EACH OTHER. THEY ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE FOR EACH OTHER TO GET A WIN. I WOULD SAY IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES IT IS TOUGH TO GO ON A SHORT WEEK IT'S NOT LIKE WE WERE THERE THEY WERE IN A SHORT WEEK TOO. SOMETIMES IT IS HALF. THEY FOCUSED ALL WEEK ON MONDAY. THEY WERE SO VALID AND FOCUS.

>> IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE SEEING? WITH YOUR PASSING GAME? >> MOST TOUCHDOWNS WERE COMING ON THE GROUND. IT JUST THREE WEEKS IN A ROW HE'S THROWING MULTIPLE TOUCHDOWN PASSES. THAT'S THE DEEP GAME THAT'S THE INTERMEDIATE GAME. THAT'S SCREEN GAME IN THE RUN GAME. WE ALWAYS WANT TO DO WHAT WE DO BEST AND I THINK THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT AJ IS A SPECIAL TRACT.
