There’s one major question mark on the Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive roster, and we all know what that is.

Well, it won’t be long now. Pretty soon, we’ll all be abuzz over there being two months separating us from Week 1’s Philadelphia Eagles game versus the Detroit Lions. If you close your eyes, you can almost smell the fragrance of a great tailgating atmosphere.

Excitement is in the air. Philly has upgraded their roster as the fans are now enjoying something that they haven’t had in a while… expectations.

It isn’t the perfect team, particularly on offense, but it’s a good-looking unit on paper. There is, however, one major talking point that we can’t stop discussing, and we all know what that is.

. . . Quarterback. 5. player. 54

Entering the 2022-2023 season, the conversation surrounding Jalen Hurts is as hot and as heavy as it always is, maybe even more so. QB1 has an 18-week, 17-game audition scheduled. Unfortunately, the most important position on the team is seen as one of the Eagles’ weakest links in what’s become a strong chain.

Philadelphia’s schedule is favorable. Jalen, for the first time since high school, enters a season running the same offense that he ran one year prior, but regardless of what you believe about whether he can get the job done or not, two statements are factual.

One, if the offense falters, most believe it will be for one reason. It will be because QB1 let the team down. Second, if the bottom falls out and things don’t go according to plan, Hurts won’t have any excuse if he’s one of the scapegoats.

Sitting behind him on the depth chart are backup Gardner Minshew, undrafted rookie free agent Carson Strong, and Reid Sinnett. The latter appears to be on a collision course with the practice squad.
