Eagles head coach says the team will use pain of Super Bowl LVII loss to motivate them

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni speaks to officials during the second half of Super Bowl LVII.

After losing Super Bowl LVII to the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni told his players to turn the pain of defeat into a strength.

“I just reminded them that all the things that we’ve went through in our lives was something that was adversity; that we will overcome this, too. Because the type of guys that we have in there — we will use this to motivate us. We will use this pain — will use this failure — to motivate us so we can make it a strength.”

As for Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts’ impressive performance in the loss, Sirianni said: “Jalen played the best game I’ve seen him play in the two years we’ve been together. He was outstanding.

“I really thought he was in complete control. He did things with his legs in the run game, he did things with his arm in the pass game, made some unbelievable throws, unbelievable reads. I thought he played outstanding.

“You look at the game and that was good for the NFL, in the sense that the two best quarterbacks in the NFL played against each other on the biggest stage, and the biggest lights, and Jalen played great.”

Tight end Kelce was vocal about the perceived disrespect aimed at the Chiefs, who entered the game as underdogs against the Philadelphia Eagles despite appearing in three of the last four Super Bowls.

“None one of y’all said the Chiefs were gonna take it home this year!” Kelce said. “Not a single one. Feel that s**t! Feel it, and on top of that, next time the Chiefs say something, put some respect on our name!”

When the attention turned to Mahomes, Kelce grabbed the mic to praise his MVP quarterback: “M-V-Pat! You can’t say enough about what this guy means to Kansas City and this team.”

Mahomes was typically humble, sharing the credit with his coach and teammates.

“I mean, I told y’all before this season, we got coach Andy Reid, we got guys like Travis Kelce, Chris Jones, Frank Clark,” Mahomes said. “We’re gonna be the Kansas City Chiefs. At the end of the day, we’re gonna be the Kansas City Chiefs, and we’re gonna celebrate this right here, baby! We’re gonna celebrate this the right way.”

Chiefs’ Frank Clark emotional: In an interview with FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager, Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark was speaking through tears as he explained what it meant to him to be standing on the field as Super Bowl champion.

“It’s a blessing, man. I know my pops, my pops smiling, man. I wish he could see it, you know, but I know he’s smiling,” Clark said. “Been going through a lot the last few days, but it makes sense now. It makes sense, bro.”

In 2018, Clark tweeted that his father and three other family members died in a housefire in Cleveland, Ohio.

John Travolta recreates iconic "Grease" routine with "Scrubs" duo

Some classics never go out of style, especially when it comes to John Travolta and “Grease.”

The actor and singer appears in a new Super Bowl ad for T-Mobile, which dropped Thursday, in which he performs a new rendition of hit song “Summer Nights,” alongside Zach Braff and Donald Faison of “Scrubs” fame.

The track was immortalized by Travolta and his late co-star Olivia Newton-John in the beloved 1978 musical film “Grease,” the movie for which the pair is most known.

In the new spot, the lyrics are changed to plug the wireless service provider.

The ad comes roughly six months after Newton-John’s death at the age of 73 in August 2022.

Upon learning of her passing at the time, Travolta wrote a message to his late co-star on Instagram, saying, “you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible.”

He signed the message: “Your Danny, your John!”

Danny is a nod to his character Danny Zuko in “Grease,” the love interest of Newton-John’s Sandy Olsson.

In 2019, the pair spent one night recreating their iconic “Grease” personas, when they attended a sing-along of the movie and a Q&A session at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida.

It was the first time the two actors had been in costume as Danny and Sandy since they first made the hit movie over 40 years ago, Newton-John wrote on her Instagram at the time.
