There are theories that Jalen Hurts is too inconsistent to be the Eagles starter.
During his brief stint as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, second-year star Jalen Hurts has already had his share of ups and downs. While he has had an upside as demonstrated in his games versus the Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions, he has performed poorly against the contenders Philly has seen, the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers for instance.
Then, there’s what has to be seen as the worst game that he’s ever played, one versus what was supposed to be an inferior New York Giants team. Sure, Hurts has had his fair share of good games, but the argument can also be made that he’s far too inconsistent to be a starting QB in the NFL.
Hurts cannot keep performing as he did last week, or he will be shown the door sooner rather than later. He’s also playing in Philly where the fanbase has no issue with holding players accountable regardless of how good they may be.
Remember the Donovan McNabb draft pick, where the fans booed him before he even played? Eagles fans seem to have calmed since those days, but Hurts will feel the wrath if he doesn’t improve. Here are the top three reasons QB1 won’t be back in 2022 if he is indeed shown the door.
