Jalen Hurts gets some MVP consideration as he continues to improve as a passer all season.

On the surface, throwing Jalen Hurts in the MVP conversation may seem ridiculous to some, so it may seem even wackier to believe he’ll lead this team to a Super Bowl appearance. You can best believe that he doesn’t see any reason why he can’t shock everyone and do the unthinkable.

Remember when one thought he could excel as a passer at the collegiate level and wind up in the Heisman Trophy discussion as a result?

What would Hurts’ numbers have to look like to get into the MVP discussion? What type of leap are we discussing?

The former second-round selection needs to throw over 30 touchdowns at a minimum, continue to make plays with his legs, win the division, and keep his interception total in the single digits. In each of his first two seasons, he avoided the double-digit interception total.

Hurts has no excuses for being unsuccessful. He has the supporting cast. All he has to do is get the ball into the hands of all of those playmakers. Stars are everywhere. They all have a nose for the end zone. A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, Goston Scott, and Dallas Goedert. Everyone is capable of making big plays.

Throw in Hurts’ ability to scramble and improvise to the equation, and there’s another part of his game that can land him in the MVP consideration if Philly beats some of the better teams on their schedule and it’s evident that he had a lot to do with it happening.

If he thrives under pressure and leads a few game-winning drives, those conversations will heat up, and they’ll do so quickly. Sure, it’s July, and training camp hasn’t arrived yet, but you were promised nothing but positive vibes here. After all, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming, right?
