The Eagles new coach challenging draft prospects to games of Rock, Paper, Scissors is so insane it might just work

April 21, 2021

At long last, the NFL Draft is next week, a time when we can finally put to bed the "Devonta Smith is too skinny" and "Zach Wilson is not a leader" and "Justin Fields is a last in first out guy" takes. Soon, we can all just move the hell on with our lives and stop arguing about hand sizes and 40 times.

For now, though, we're still firmly in the middle of Draft SZN, when every franchise is looking for some sort of edge on the competition before they're on the clock. For the Philadelphia Eagles and new head coach Nick Sirianni, apparently that edge is ... Rock, Paper, Scissors?

Yes, you read that correctly. Sirianni challenged a number of draft prospects to a few games of RPS in the name of gauging how competitive they are. We'll allow him to explain:

Let's be honest, he's not wrong. You can tell a lot about a person by how they treat even the simplest of competitive situations, whether it be a game of RPS, Monopoly or football. Some people want to win at all costs (scissors people), others will throw out paper a couple of times to get it over with and say "this is dumb." You want scissors guy on your team, 100 percent of the time. Scissors guy is running down on kickoff team and laying the wood. Paper guy thinks he's too good to play special teams. Sirianni's idea is so crazy it might just work.
