Mention some of the toughest Philadelphia Eagles of all time, and regardless of wh you come up with, certain guys have to be mentioned. Jason Kelce... Brian Dawkins... Malcolm Jenkins... Chuck Bednarik... The latter worked a construction job in the offseason and was nicknamed 'Concrete Charlie' for Heaven's sake.
Yoy know what? We have come to the conclusion that we can no longer mention the toughest Eagles without bringing up the franchise's current QB1, Jalen Hurts.
Jalen Hurts ignores the limitations of his body, responds with a beautiful second-half TD pass.
By now, you have all seen what happened or you have heard the story. You haven't heard our version of the tale though.
Under no circumstance should a human being who is already dealing with a knee issue take a shot on that knee and act as though nothing happened a few moments later. That's especially true if that shot is delivered by Demarcus Lawrence. Jalen Hurts may not be human though.
At the close of the first half, Philly's QB1 was visibly uncomfortable following the above scenario. He didn't miss a play.
He jogged off under his own power, and once the Eagles re-emerged from the Eagles' locker room, he and DeVonta Smith connected to make magic happen.
So, let's sum this up. QB1 took an I.V. at halftime, returned for the second-half kickoff, and led the Eagles' offense right down the field. Just check this one out. Appreciate the beauty.
Take that haters! Jalen Hurts is fine! He's also as tough as they come. At the time of this story being written and published, the Birds are in a dogfight with one of their fiercest rivals, but don't worry about Philadelphia's star quarterback. He won't be sitting this one out.
