Say this out loud and see how it sounds. Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown for office… Is it strange to state that the phrase has a ring to it? By the looks of things, we may be seeing those words on t-shirts relatively soon. Number 11 seems to already be hitting the campaign trail.
A.J. Brown showed up to a Tuesday afternoon Philadelphia Eagles practice session in a brown sweatshirt with the words “Hurts-Brown ’22” across his chest. The platform hasn’t been announced yet. No press conferences are scheduled, but at least we have the appropriate gear. Everything should take care of itself.
Give this one a look.
Call us crazy, but with the way he and the Eagles’ QB1 are playing, one might make the argument that they could run for office when their playing days are over, especially seeing as how we’ve seen this story play itself out before.
Before A.J. Brown, there was Jon Runyan.
Once upon a time and many moons ago, Jon Runyan spent nine years representing the Midnight Green in a Philadelphia Eagles jersey. He played his way into the Eagles Hall of Fame. He’s also a member of the 75th Anniversary Team, but the love didn’t end when he hung the cleats up. As a matter of fact, it grew more intense.
Jon Runyan is so beloved that, when his playing days were over, New Jersey’s 3rd district elected him to his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Trust us on this one, if he stays the course, A.J. Brown and Jalen Hurts may take up residency in political offices of their own if they decide that’s what he wants to do.
With the way he and the Eagles’ QB1 are playing, one might make the argument that if they joined forces, they could find their names in a few ballot boxes as write-ins this November, depending on what the office is of course. There’s an old saying, though we forget where it originated. If your dreams are attainable, your dreams aren’t big enough.
The Eagles have thoughts of Super Bowl glory on their minds. They’re off to a great start in 2022. A.J. Brown has brought dignity back to the Number 11 jersey in the City of Brotherly Love. Hopefully, he plays for a long time.
While we’re on the subject though, we can see him in a suit and tie when his playing days are over. A world where he and Jalen are in public office and Jason Kelce is the mayor of Philadelphia sounds just fine to us.
Never discredit the type of effect our heroes have on us. Never doubt the love that the many members of Philadelphia Eagles Nation have for their football team. Again, all you have to do is look at Jon Runyan if you need any evidence.
