Regardless of where you are in the discussion over how patient the Philadelphia Eagles should be with Jalen Hurts, there are certain things that we all can agree on, certain theories about Philly’s QB1 that we became privy to long before the Birds used a second-round draft choice on him in 2020. No one will ever be able to question his mental makeup.

During the 2021-2022 NFL regular season, QB1 had moments of brilliance like his game versus the Atlanta Falcons and the go-ahead drive versus the Carolina Panthers. He also had a few mini-implosions. We still can’t figure out what went on in New Jersey versus the New York Giants.

That’s the deal though when your signal-caller is still raw and finding his way. We trust him to do the work though. If Jalen Hurts fails, it won’t be because of immaturity or a lack of the necessary work ethic.

Those are the things that we love about him most, and that admiration is strengthened every time we see Baker Mayfield say anything. We haven’t spoken to Jalen Hurts today, but we’re sure of something anyway. We know at some point today, even though there are no organized activities for the Philadelphia Eagles to engage in, QB1 will clock in somewhere and go to work.

Jalen Hurts looks game-ready in a recent ad for Eastbay.

A couple of weeks ago, he was tossing darts in California with a throwing coach. Recently, he tossed the medicine ball around for Eastbay. The NFL Draft hasn’t even arrived yet, and Jalen Hurts looks like he could go a full four quarters if there was a game to play tomorrow.

QB1 isn’t just the face of the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s the new face for Eastbay Performance, a major athletic wear company that’s been paving roads for so many others while still maintaining a distinct lane of its own.

Take a look at this one. It’s worth the investment.

We don’t say this about quarterbacks often, but if you’re an EDGE rusher and looking to bring this guy down, you had better wrap him up. Arm tackles aren’t going to do it. Remember that, or you’ll end up in a highlight reel.

Jalen Hurts is four inches shorter than Ben Roethlisberger and 17 pounds lighter of frame, but he’s just as difficult to tackle if not more so. The Eagles are going to win more games than some of you think in 2022, but win, lose, or draw, they and their quarterback are going to be fun to watch. You can bet your bottom dollar on that.
