time2rock Posted May 20, 2021 Share Posted May 20, 2021 Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Ranked Harshly Among 32 NFL Starters By Mike Greger Updated May 19, 2021 at 11:33am GettyQuarterback Jalen Hurts #2 of the Philadelphia Eagles. Jalen Hurts has a lot to prove in Year 2. His rookie year was marred by a quarterback controversy that ended in a bitter divorce. The new Philadelphia Eagles starter also struggled with turnovers and accuracy in his first year. Head coach Nick Sirianni has yet to officially name Hurts the new face of the franchise, but there is no other option. All apologies to Joe Flacco, of course. He’ll be under center in Week 1 and not everyone is high on the second-year quarterback excelling for the Eagles. Pro Football Focus recently ranked Hurts as the second-worst player at his position heading into the 2021 football season. Hurts came in at No. 31, sandwiched in between Drew Lock (Denver Broncos) at No. 32 and rookie Zach Wilson (New York Jets) at No. 30. Here is what former NFL quarterback-turned-analyst Brad Gradkowski wrote: Jalen Hurts will get his opportunity to showcase not only his skills but his leadership heading into 2021. Hurts provided an immediate spark last season, but the wheels started to fall off after that. Hurts must manage the game with better decision-making. He finished the season with nine turnover-worthy plays in the last four games. If Hurts wants to be the guy in Philadelphia, then he needs to protect the ball better. His leadership and poise will bring the team together, but production — and winning football games — must follow. Where did Carson Wentz rank on the list? The one-time franchise quarterback came in at No. 23 with Gradkowski predicting an "interesting year” for Wentz. The Indianapolis Colts are banking on his reunion with former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich to cure his 2020 woes. https://heavy.com/sports/philadelphia-eagles/pro-football-focus-jalen-hurts/?fbclid=IwAR19CvsVos6xf49YXKE-gc6SCTT0CR8_7M3vMgpzZpptHcgLR7ukoGtr7jo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
