The Big Story: Sean McDermott prepares for first game as head coach

“We are going to win going through the process”

From the minute Sean McDermott arrived, he’s been about one thing over all else: “The process.” That hasn’t changed as he gets set to coach his first regular season game.

“I’m sure there will be some newness to that, just like there was in the preseason,” McDermott said.  “But I’m such a guy that’s focused process-wise.”

McDermott is the 20th head coach in franchise history. He spent nearly two decades working toward this day.  So, what will be running through his mind when he enters New Era Field for the 1st regular season game?

“I’ll be very, I think, humbled by the opportunity and thankful,” he told reporters earlier this week as he prepared to face off against the Jets.

Ultimately the progress will be judged on the progress.

“To be able to perform in front of these fans and the passionate fan base that we have. To get this stadium back to where it belongs, in terms of our home field advantage, and we look forward to getting out there this weekend in front of our fans.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
