There’s one thing that the Philadelphia Eagles can hang their hats on.

5. Hurts still showed more good than bad.

After being one of the highest-graded quarterbacks in the league in Week 1, Jalen Hurts fell short of his prior week’s performance. Only completing just a tick above 50 percent of his passing attempts, Philly’s young quarterback also failed to throw a touchdown pass in Week 2.

There is good news though. He also didn’t throw any interceptions.

Hurts was good enough to win, and he knew when to tuck the ball and run. He didn’t put the ball in harm’s way. He still had some missed opportunities, but it was encouraging to see him pick up his team when the game was almost all but over. This type of fight is going to go a long way.

Overall, it wasn’t the best game for Hurts, but it wasn’t his worst either. The one main concern that may be troubling for some fans is the fact that he has to know when to call some audibles at the line of scrimmage.

Fans need to remember that this season isn’t about wins or losses. This season has to be about finding what it will take for this team to get back on track. Yes, a winning season would be great and it is possible. Still, the Birds still have questions that need to be answered.

If you are a fan that’s down on this team because of this loss, don’t be. Dallas Week is upon us, and Sirianni and company have a lot of work to do. Let’s see what this team does to fight back.
