He clearly isn’t one hundred percent healthy. The explosion isn’t back yet (but it’s coming). Still, 80 percent to 90 percent of Jalen Hurts is a much better option than having the full range of everyone else’s ability. Hold on though! We thought this guy was supposed to be injured? Maybe Nick Sirianni was right? Maybe he does heal like Wolverine of the X-Men!

The Philadelphia Eagles star and TRUE MVP OF THE NFL is rolling in primetime! The first half of the NFC Divisional Game versus the New York Giants has featured back-to-back sacks and another TD by Boston Scott, the Giant Killer. We’ve also seen a James Bradberry revenge interception and a phenomenal performance by QB1.

Most importantly, he has also checked the boxes and answered a few questions that we’ve been asking about him for a while.

Jalen Hurts is back and throwing his own homecoming party versus the Giants.

We’ve seen some great comebacks in the National Football League. It doesn’t appear that the G-Men will treat us to another. Jalen Hurts has thrown himself a true homecoming party, and as a Birds fan, you can’t ask for much more than that.

The first 30 minutes of action featured a 12-of-17 passing performance, two TDs through the air, another rushing TD with his legs, and a QB rating of 129.0. We’ve seen Jalen Hurts air it out. We’ve seen him pass the ‘can he run?’ test.

The Eagles lead the hated Giants by a 28-0 score at halftime. The goals now are clear. Close this one out. Get out of this one healthy.

With a win, the Eagles host the winner of the Dallas Cowboys/San Francisco 49ers clash. That will set up next week’s NFC Championship Game. So far, so good. The Birds are one step closer to punching their ticket to the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.
