The Philadelphia Eagles will play harder for Jalen Hurts than they did for Wentz.
If you still haven’t figured out that the majority of this team wanted Jalen Hurts under center, it may be time to dust off those Wentz-colored glasses. You’ve been told most of this for six years now, and some of you still haven’t caught up with the rest of us, so let’s just pull out a few random facts that so many of you have chosen to ignore or have forgotten.
Does no one remember when those reports surfaced that there were guys in the locker room that thought Wentz was a bad teammate? How long are we going to ignore that there were anonymous sources, and burner accounts, and at least two of his wide receivers that had consciously made up their minds that they were out to get him?
Is there anyone that wants to talk about the fact that Duce Staley was irritated with the fact that he was coddled? Does anyone have any comments on the subject of Philly hiring an enabler as his quarterback coach because Press Taylor was his buddy? No? Does no one have anything on that?
Look, we’ve beaten this horse to death. The evidence has been overwhelming for years. This team wanted to play with Nick Foles. Then, they rallied around Jalen Hurts. Folks, Wentz’s Eagles teammates built a shrine to Nick Foles when he left. You didn’t really see them do that for Carson now, did you?
Some of you still haven’t figured this out, but maybe the 2021 season will serve as some evidence. Jalen Hurts is the guy that most of this franchise including their former head coach Doug Pederson wanted under center. Now, it’s up to Hurts to prove that he’s worthy of that confidence.
