There isn’t an Eagles fan in the Delaware Valley or anywhere else that hasn’t heard about the struggles of Day 2 and Day 3.

Day 2 (Friday, July 29th)
As you might expect, with a young offense (and a young signal-caller behind center), the defense is slightly ahead of the offense at this juncture.
After a decent first day, Jalen Hurts was challenged on Friday and Saturday. Here’s how he did.
The Eagles placed him under center for this one. QB1 made up for the overthrow of A.J. Brown, with WR1 running towards the sideline on Day 1 by hitting him with a pretty pass on Friday. This one came during 11-on-11 drills.
Perhaps one of the advantages of this being training camp is Hurts is allowed to try and thread the needle on a few instances during situations where he may not try to do so in a game that counts toward the win-loss total.
Here’s one of those throws that you may have heard about. A bad-looking, off-balance toss off of Hurts’ back foot winds up in the hands of Avonte Maddox. He robbed Dallas Goedert in the process.
Day 3 (Friday, July 30th)
Jalen Reagor season returns. Always the star at this time of the year, Reag runs a nice route towards the sideline and hauls in a nice toss from QB1. In another instance, during some seven-on-seven work, one of Hurts’ best throws results in an incompletion.
Jalen tosses a rare deep ball down the sideline. The throw is near-perfect, but Quez Watkins doesn’t come up with the reception. Quez has been having a good camp, but the argument can be made that he could have shown a little more effort on that one.
Perhaps his worst throw of camp so far, Jalen Hurts rolls left and throws across his body. Again, one can ask if he’s gambling a little because we’re discussing a practice session, but either way, the ball ended up in Andre Chachere’s hands. That, most certainly isn’t how that one was drawn up.
