Jalen Hurts Takes Blame For Eagles\' Blowout Loss To Cowboys 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Sep 28, 2021 12:55 pm

The Philadelphia Eagles lost 41-21 to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night in a game that exposed many of the team\'s weaknesses.

Jalen Hurts went 25-for-39 for 326 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Eagles failed to score on their first seven offensive possessions, while the Cowboys went up-and-down the field with ease.

\"I didn\'t do a good enough job of leading,\" Hurts said after the loss. \"I didn\'t do a good enough job of running our offense, of doing the things that I need to do. So it\'s on me. This one\'s on me.

\"I didn\'t do my job. I didn\'t do my job and we didn\'t win the game. When I do my job, we win the game. I didn\'t do my job.\"

Jalen Hurts is not good. Tank year, and we hope Wentz plays in 75% of the Colts offensive snaps.
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.

While Hurts' play was disappointing against the Cowboys, I think he should get some leeway to learn and grow. If, after an entire season, he doesn't improve and/or regresses, then yup, we move on and trade for/draft a QB. Give Hurts the season. Let's see how he bounces back. His leadership intangibles are not something that can be taught.

Not completely on him. Their defense is trash.
