The Eagle found mixed results with second year reverse quarter Jalen Hurts are their starters in 2021. At times, the former second-round pick plays like new coach Nick Sirianni’s attacking MVP, using both his arms and legs to guide the 9’s finish. -8 and appeared in the playoff. In other cases, such as Philadelphia’s unsightly loss to Sugarcane seller, Hurts looks too excellent, especially as a passerby. Entering the offseason, however, the Eagles have confirmed Hurts for the 2022 job, with Sirianni and general manager Howie Roseman telling reporters Wednesday that they believe Hurts has earned the spot.
“Jalen knows where he stands with us,” Sirianni said. “He knows he’s our quarterback. … I think he’s done well getting better throughout the year, so there’s no secret there. He knows who he is. our people.”
Asked repeatedly if he shares the sentiment and if Hurts is doing enough to enter 2022 as a starter, Roseman agreed.
“Yes,” he said. “We said we wanted to see him take the bull’s horn, and he certainly did. … I think for us we have to do whatever we can to keep going. Keep helping him grow And how do we do that? Surrounding him with really good players Players keep growing, that’s a huge part of growing, they grow. . is also the product of the people around them.”
It’s a stronger endorsement than the one Roseman issued to beginners before Carson Wentz in 2020, when GM said he couldn’t imagine parting with Pro Bowler but left the door open for a deal. It also echoes the enduring constructive message that team owner Jeffrey Lurie preached after firing Doug Pederson and subsequently, adding Sirianni as head coach.
That’s not to say the Eagles can’t and won’t – or shouldn’t – explore other QB options before 2022, especially since they own the first three picks this season. Going into a season with plans is one thing; Keeping track of them is another thing, especially if a veteran likes Seahawks star Russell Wilson becomes available. But for now, at least, the club appear to be buying according to the progress of their current QB.
