Despite different backgrounds and belief systems, there are areas where Philadelphia Eagles fans agree. There are cliches we can’t stop repeating. There are theories we all have adopted.

It’s often been mentioned that much can be learned from what’s said about stars by teammates. Again, we don’t know who authored the phrase, but it kind of makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Have you ever heard teammates defend Baker Mayfield? Now, think about what’s happening in Philly. Veterans and young stars have all supported Jalen Hurts, and now with the announcement of his extension, the ‘Brotherly Love’ is in the air again.

Jalen Hurts’ Eagles teammates congratulate QB1 on Twitter.

Yes fans, Jalen Hurts is a wealthy man. Ten days ahead of another NFL Draft, the Eagles have announced his five-year extension. News travels fast around pro football’s most loyal fan base. QB1’s teammates seem to have gotten the memo as well.

Fellow Tide products and former teammates, some of which who are now rivals, checked in to celebrate as well. So did a couple of the franchise’s legends.

In all honesty, we’re just happy that we got to hang on Twitter and see some positivity.

Jalen Hurts enters the 2023-2024 NFL season with a lot to be proud of. This is his third full season as Philly’s starter, He made a massive leap last time around.

3,701 passing yards, a 66.5% completion percentage, and 22 passing touchdowns came by way of some much-improved arm talent. He added 760 additional yards and 13 trips to the end zone with his legs. We can’t wait to see what comes next.
