Simply put, Jalen Hurts is a winner, one that hasn’t reached his peak yet.
Jalen Hurts spent most of his rookie year backing up Carson Wentz. He got his opportunity late in the campaign. The road was rocky.
During his first full season as a starter in 2021, he improved, but there were questions. He hadn’t quite arrived. In 2022, he kicked the door in. As a starter, he led the Eagles to a mark of 14-1 during the regular season and won two of the team’s three playoff games. Philly went 0-2 in their games with him on the sideline.
His 16 combined regular and postseason wins are the most in the Eagles franchise’s history. His presence elevates the guys around him.
For much of this past season, Hurts played at an MVP level. He finished the regular season with 3,701 passing yards, 22 touchdown passes, and a 66.5% completion rate. These all represented career highs as a passer.
Additionally, he produced 760 yards on the ground and 13 rushing touchdowns.35 combined touchdowns versus only six interceptions is a phenomenal ratio. and get this. He hasn’t come close to reaching his ceiling. As he continues to develop and learn, the sky is the limit. The Eagles were and can be nearly unstoppable with him at the helm of the offense.
