Eagles News: ESPN ranks Jalen Hurts as the second-best quarterback from the 2020 NFL Draft
Let’s get to it Philadelphia Eagles Link…
Ranking 2020 NFL Draft QBs: Burrow, Tua, Herbert, Hurts – ESPN+
First off the board is the same guy who first came in 2020: Joe Barro. His accuracy, decision-making and quick processing ability are remarkable for a player so early in his career. He’s recovered from a serious knee injury he suffered as a rookie and we’ve seen him make big strides. He is playing at a superstar level more than any other passer on this list. Burrow is the oldest, which hurts him a bit, but the only thing he lacks is elite arm strength. The first pick was Chuck, but the second saw Jalen Hurts fly on the board and pass three other first-round picks from 2020. (Jordan Love Packers at 26 no.) Harts’ steady—and spectacular—development over the course of his career speaks to both his work ethic and his talent. He has proven that concerns about his mechanics or passing ability are nonissues since before the draft. I’d be a little concerned about him taking a lot of hits as a runner and passer, but he has a cleaner injury history than Tagovailo and Herbert.
Odell Beckham Jr. to the Eagles? – BGN
‘Which team is Odell Beckham Jr. going to sign with?’ It’s been an annoyingly over-debated question lately as the free agent wide receiver prepares to return to football after suffering an ACL injury. Super Bowl. OBJ started visiting the team last week, first meeting with Buffalo Bill before proceeding New York Giants And then Dallas Cowboys. It seemed inevitable that OBJ would sign a deal with Dallas with all the flirtation going on. But that doesn’t seem to be the case now. While visiting the Cowboys, a report leaked about how OBJ might not be ready to play this season. Jerry Jones did not directly answer when asked about OBJ’s availability this year. And so it’s not entirely clear what’s next for OBJ. But apparently a team he hasn’t been to (at least to public knowledge) is in the mix to sign him. Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL QB Index, Week 14: Joe Barro knocks on top-three door; Tom Brady Doing Tom Brady Things – NFL.com
2) Jalen Harts. The face of the league’s most versatile offense, Hearts can do it all. A week after the Packers rushed for 157 yards — Philly’s 363 against an airy Green Bay outfit — Hurts played a revenge-fueled Broo in a fireworks display 380 yards through the air to frustrate Tennessee’s defense. Running an attack that’s fourth in yards per drive and second in points per March — and, thanks in no small part to Hurts, first in ground-game DVOA — Philly’s second-year starter is more than a viable MVP candidate. He has fully arrived for a team that just a year ago was still evaluating his future as a professional. Her growth is stunning.
2022 NFL MVP predictions: Here comes Bengals QB Joe Burrow – PFF
QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles. Week 13 stats: 68.2 PFF grade | 0.46 EPA per game. Season to date: 87.0 PFF grade 0.13 EPA per game. Just when it looked like the wheels might fall off a bit, the Eagles offense went on an impressive stretch of play. Hitting is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the MVP race. A rematch with the Cowboys in Week 16 will likely play a huge role in the number of MVP votes he receives.
Spadaro: Jalen Hurts looks to Giants challenge this Sunday – PE.com
The date was November 28, 2021, and in the haze of a tough 13-7 loss to the New York Giants, with a bitter sense of defeat, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts stepped forward and took over. “Today, I put us in a bad situation with the turnovers I had in the first half, especially with a chance to get points before halftime,” said Hurts, who threw three interceptions and was 14-of-129 passing. yards, finishing with a 17.5 quarterback rating “It’s something we have to overcome and we will.” Since that game, the Eagles are 15-2 in the regular season, with their last loss coming in 2021 against Dallas and a loss to Washington after an 8-0 start this season. Hurts overcame that setback at MetLife Stadium, as his Most Valuable Player-level season continued for the second straight Sunday with an NFC Offensive Player of the Week performance – 380 passing yards, 3 touchdowns in a win over Tennessee. And since that day at the Giants, just over a full calendar year since, the Eagles have found their identity on offense. It certainly took some time, as there is a long learning curve when a new coaching staff comes in to teach the scheme to a quarterback in his first full season as a starter, and it takes some time for the pieces around the quarterback to fit properly. .
Eagles at Giants: Five matchups to watch – PhillyVoice
The Eagles made a concerted effort to attack a young group of Titan corners last Sunday. AJ Brown and Devonta Smith responded by combining for 13 catches for 221 yards and 3 TDs. The Giants have played decent pass defense this year, allowing just 6.6 yards per pass attempt. But they’re ill-equipped to stop Brown, Smith and the rest of the Eagles’ passing offense. One last quick note: The Giants’ best defensive player this season is DT Dexter Lawrence (54 tackles, 6 sacks, 20 QB hits). He had to play 77 (!) snaps in an overtime game against the Commanders on Sunday, so he may not be very fresh this week.
Week 14 NFL Picks Again the Spread – The Ringer
The Titans’ plan against the Eagles last week was to slow Jalen Hurts down and not rush him. That didn’t work out so well. It was perhaps the Eagles’ most complete win of the year. They dominate on both sides of the ball. The Giants, meanwhile, tied the Commanders in overtime. According to Fanduel, they are -110 to make the playoffs, which roughly translates to a 52 percent chance. Keep an eye on the Giants pass rush down the stretch. If they can get Kyvon Thibodeaux, Aziz Ozulari, Dexter Lawrence, and Leonard Williams (who left last week’s game with a neck injury) healthy, that team has a chance to give opponents trouble. This is a divisional game, and I generally like to take Bryan Double as the underdog. But the Giants’ lack of talent at wide receiver and corner is a huge factor here. I like the Eagles by a touchdown. Pick: Eagles (-6.5)
Eagles locker room poll: Backroom staff making impact – athletic
Fletcher Cox: “(Player Resource Coordinator/Assistant Director of Player Engagement) Miss Cathy Mair. She is like everyone’s mother. And (senior director of player engagement) Paul Lancaster. Player development and Miss Kathy, she helps the players with a bunch of things and just takes the pressure off a bunch of guys, especially the younger guys. I don’t think many people realize how difficult his job is. Always grateful for that of course. Think about it, guys come here and he’s helping them find a place to stay, making sure everything is really taken care of. This is one thing you don’t have to worry about when you come here. Kathy always has your back.”
Bradbury is ready for the Giants and whatever his future holds – NBCSP
Given how well he’s been playing, Bradbury could break the bank en route to a huge contract in free agency this spring. And the Eagles, who have already made a killing on a high-priced contract, may not be able to afford to keep him. Bradbury said he thinks his standards are now “pretty high” and that’s hard to argue with. “I’m open to being here,” Bradbury said. “Like I said, at the end of the day, it’s going to be business first. And it has meaning for me to be here. And, of course, they’ll want me to be here, too.” While Bradbury said the opportunity to play for a winning team — and the Eagles are clearly a winning team — will definitely factor into his decision, the fact that he said “business first” certainly seems like his services. No waivers will be granted in 2023. And the Eagles have plenty of pending free agents to worry about after the 2022 season.
How the Philadelphia Eagles and Philly’s Music Scene Join Forces on a Christmas Album – Stereogum
Hall then recruited an all-star group of Philly musicians to play on Philly Christmas Special, enlisting friends and connections from his past two decades living and performing in Philadelphia. The amount of ancestry in this list is staggering. Not only does it feature some of Hall’s comrades on drugs, including Elijah Hardy Jones and Robbie Bennett, but it also features a hit list of some of Philly’s best, including Dr. Jack Miller of Doug, Brandon Beaver from MeWithoutYou, Randy Huth of Pissed Jeans, Jon Wurster, Lady Alma, Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Orchestra, and Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian of the Hooters. From soul to indie rock to jazz, nearly every nook and cranny of Philadelphia’s music scene is represented here. And at the center of it is Charlie Hall, who produced and played drums on the record. “Charlie’s great talent in this world is connecting people,” said Eliza Hardy Jones, War on Drugs’ multi-instrumentalist and Philly Special Christmas vocal guru. “Everyone we’ve been involved with represents something special about Philadelphia.”
Odell Beckham Jr.’s best move would be to play in 2022, forget about 2023 – PFT
Yes, he visited the Bills, Giants and Cowboys. But if he decides to sign a deal for the balance of the season, he might want to consider the Chiefs or Eagles — teams that could play well in January. Teams with enough talented receivers can ensure he gets favorable matchups. Teams with coaches smart enough to get him wide open. Teams with quarterbacks who are good enough to get him the ball. It may be the only way to get the kind of contract he wants in 2023. Currently, it doesn’t seem like anyone is going to give him something that works out to $20 million per year until he shows he can play. So Beckham faced such a situation. He might not like it, but it might be his best option. Play now. Well played. Get paid later.
Cowboys vs. Texans Injury Report (Wednesday): Tyron Smith Practices, Illness Keeps Kelvin Joseph Out – The Boys Blogging
The Cowboys look to continue their winning streak this week at home against the Houston Texans and have big news to start the week. On Wednesday, All-Pro offensive lineman Tyron Smith began his 21-day window to return to the active roster by participating in practice. Smith suffered a hamstring injury in the summer but has recovered and appears to be on track to play this season.
5 O’Clock Club: Would you trade for Aaron Rodgers this offseason? – Hogs Haven
Aaron Rodgers is a quarterback that needs receivers and defenses. The Commanders have a team that is completely built, but a team that lacks the most important ingredient – a top-tier quarterback. Keeping them together could be the key to a championship season in 2023. Ron Rivera seems like the perfect head coach for a brooding, abrasive guy like Rodgers, and it’s easy to imagine how #12 could transform Scott Turner’s offense.
