Despite having a quick boot-up from the playoffs, Philadelphia Eagles Many view the 2021-22 season as a complete success.
The team was trampled on by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round, but until reaching The playoffs came as a pleasant surprise for Philly’s followers.
Their post-season push came in large part from Galen Hurts, who carried the team through an extended period late in the season that included six wins in his last seven competitions to slide into the playoffs.
Hurts became one of two QBs to throw for at least 3,000 yards (3144) and dash for at least 750 (784). It also ranked second among quarterbacks in lunge sprints per game (52.3) and fourth in broken tackle rate (6.5%).
Hurts’ committed work ethic makes Eagles head coach Nick Siriani confident in his ability to guide his crew to a second consecutive playoff appearance in 2022. According to Pro Football Focus, the Eagles roster is among the top ten for talent.
The outlet wrote: “If they don’t have the best offensive line in the NFL to enter the 2022 season, the Eagles are near the top of the list, [but] Safety remains a potential weakness in defense. While the Eagles have done a good job cementing this list over the past year, they will only go as far as Galen Hurts has taken them.”
The Eagles are ranked as the most talented team in NFC East
Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe discuss whether Jalen Hurts and the Eagles pose a threat to cowboys.
For ardent Cowboys fans of Skip Bayless, Hurts poses a major threat to their NFC East hopes. Dallas is ranked 16th in the PFF roster rankings.
“The point is, can a full-back play me [Dak Prescott] He said about Dallas Tuesday in “Undisputed.” [Elliott] In general do or die? List eagles better than cowboys.
“It’s like the margin between Jalen Hurts and Dak Prescott has been shrinking all year long. Dak was going to start [the season], and Jalen Hurts are just starting to get a little better, a little bit better and a little bit better. Then the Eagles make the playoffs. Don’t you think that created momentum in this franchise? “
According to Bellis, while the pure throw mechanics may not be Hurts’ strong suit, he’s got the “it” factor.
“While the intangibles will take the NFL quarterback, he’s going to go that far,” Bayliss stressed. “He has a lot of intangibles, leadership and game making, not just throwing intangibles. I don’t see the Pro Bowl in the future, but I just respect him. He scares me to death. He throws after throw, throw after throw in Oklahoma, and obviously he can Mix in some running. They say pound for pound, he’s the strongest guy in the weight room.”
Shannon Sharp, on the other hand, wasn’t sold based on Hurts’ ability to steer Philly to the pinnacle of success.
“The games will go down to points where you have to throw throws,” Sharpe said.
“In both games the quarterbacks throw the ball. You don’t always win by 14, 17, 21. It will be the ball game. The difference in this ball game is second and third Can Jalen Hurts consistently do it at a level that even the best quarterbacks can do ?
“You have to show me. If Galen Hurts goes out this year and throws the ball consistently and accurately, I will come out and say ‘I was wrong, I misjudged.’ Until then, no.”
