What's wrong with Jalen Hurts?
There's no need to dress up Jalen Hurts' Week 6 performance nicely and put a bow on it. It wouldn't be any more beautiful if we tried to do so.
Sure, we could try. We could even state those first two interceptions weren't on him, but we could also argue that the New York Jets defenders dropped two more passes that should have been picked off as well. QB1 has to be better than he has been, and he has admitted to such.
Here's where we stand though. We'd rather have Jalen as our quarterback than Deshuan Watson, Russell Wilson, or anyone else. Quarterbacks experience some slumps sometimes. Just look at what has gone on in some other cities.
Jalen has the self-awareness and ability to figure all of this out. We just hope he does so sooner rather than later.
This team will have to be aggressive and make a move to strengthen the secondary now, right?
Just look at some of the names of several key pieces and reserves that are either injured or sitting on Philly's injured reserve: Lane Johnson, Cam Jurgens, Quez Watkins, Jalen Carter, Darius Slay, Reed Blankenship, Avonte Maddox, Justin Evans, Zech McPhearson, Bradley Roby, and Eli Ricks.
Did you notice something? Seven of those 11 players are members of the Eagles secondary. We love Josh Jobe and all, but he has left much to be desired.
We would never tell Howie Roseman how to do his job. He has earned that, but if there was ever a time to make a move or trade to strengthen Philly's secondary, this might be it.
