Jalen Hurts final grades for Week 16 versus Giants

So, here we are. Another week passes, and as you might expect, the same questions are being tossed around now that we’ve heard all year. Can the Eagles win long-term with Jalen Hurts as the starter? Is he the future? Is what he’s doing sustainable?

In the meantime, here’s what a lot of people are missing. Hurts looks like a lot of guys we already know. Randall Cunningham… Michael Vick… Donovan McNabb… They all relied on their legs more than their arm more at the beginning of their careers. Things worked out for them though. Things will also work out for Hurts.

Here’s something else of note. Two more wins by this Eagles team will give Philadelphia ten wins on the season and, more than likely, a postseason berth. This win moves them to above .500.

They’re now 8-7 on the year, and for those who were wondering how QB1 would bounce back following the worst performance of his NFL career to this point, Week 12’s loss versus the Giants, you have your answer.
