Jalen Hurts Nick Saban Channels: I try to stay away from rat poison – PFT
I try to stay away from rat poison, ”said Hurts, via a video by Rob Maaddi of the Associated Press. When asked to clarify, Hurts continued: “You have to ask Coach Saban, he knows a little bit about rat poison too. “They are all external factors. I have already talked a little about this, external factors that are not good for us and what we are trying to do as a team. Hurts provided a clear spark for the Eagles, who were not mathematically eliminated from the victory at NFC East. It is launched for 505 yards with four touchdowns and no interception, adding 169 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Eagles at Cowboys preview: 5 questions and answers with the enemy – BGN
2) Which Eagles quarterback would Cowboys fans prefer to be the Philly starter in 2021: Carson Wentz or Jalen Hurts? – This is super easy. We prefer to face Carson Wentz. Given his problems with turnovers and bags, along with his poor completion percentage, he’s much easier to plan and you don’t feel like he’s going to take control of the game. From a stranger’s point of view, it looks like Wentz is holding back the Eagles’ attack instead of propelling him forward. Hurts, on the other hand, provides that true double threat like a QB that attacks Cowboys. He is exactly the type of defender who regularly confuses the Cowboys defense. We’ve only seen him in a few games, but the Eagles’ attack looks much better with him in the center than with Wentz. We will have to see how that plays out, as Hurts has to face teams that have tape on him and are planning the game to take him down, but he looks like a better QB than Wentz now.

Eagles vs. Cowboys: five clashes to watch – PhillyVoice
We say throughout the season that Zeke Elliott is clearly on the decline and that his reserve, Tony Pollard, is better. At week 15, Elliott suffered a calf injury. This would normally be great news, but it was met with indifference when it was announced before the game on Sunday. In the lead against the Niners, Pollard ran 12 times for 69 yards (5.8 YPC) and 2 TDs. He also granted 6 receptions for 63 yards.
What if the Eagles made the wrong choice in QB? – NBCSP
Can Wentz and Hurts coexist? Is it fair to nominate one of them as the title holder without open competition? Pederson – or whoever the coach is – really wants the circus that a training camp competition would become? Is it fair for Wentz to have Hurts lurking as the backup, knowing that fans will scream for him after each interception? Is it fair for Hurts to start the season on the bench after beating Wentz this year? An incredibly complicated situation with implications that will last for years.

What to note: In the last two games, playing against reserve quarterbacks in Cincinnati and San Francisco, the Cowboys had seven takeaways (five fumble bounces and two interceptions). They had 11 takeaways in their first 12 games, but four came in the first match of the year against the Eagles. Since Jalen Hurts took over from Carson Wentz, Philadelphia has turned the ball just once, a Hurts fumble. The rookie quarterback was not intercepted in his two games.
Unwavering Jalen Dói in focus: Victory on Sunday – PE.com
He’s in a “must-see” game for the first time in his NFL career and, honestly, Hurts is treating Sunday – for the Houston native, it’s a return to his home state – just like any other game. “We just want to play our best game this week because it is the next opportunity to go out there and play,” said Hurts. The next test comes with the Dallas twist – the Eagles’ archrival, a rivalry that Hurts learned as one of his first lessons when summoned in the spring, and he is well aware of the way fans feel about the Cowboys. This is going to be fun – Hurts returns to AT&T Stadium, where he took Oklahoma to the Big 12 Championship last season – and he is in for a great game against rival Eagles rivals and fans. But don’t think for a second that Hurts is treating it differently. The goal is to get a win for the Philadelphia Eagles and nothing more. “Obviously, we are in the same situation as we are in,” says Hurts. “Regardless of what happens, it is about us.”
Jalen Hurts just wants to be a coffee bean – Inquirer
Jalen Hurts talked about as much as a coffee bean when he joined the Eagles. Some of his teammates and coaches did not know what to do with his stillness. Did he have personality? Was he being arrogant? Or was he like most newbies: overwhelmed? But as time went on, most of Hurt’s new colleagues realized that he didn’t say much because he was rigorously learning how to become an NFL defender. He was too focused on the task at hand to suffer from idle conversation. Diligent has often been the word that Eagles coach Doug Pederson and his assistants use at the NovaCare Complex to describe Hurts when others may question his supposed indifference. “Jalen, he doesn’t get really tall and he doesn’t get very low,” said Pederdon recently, using a frequently repeated quarterback cliché, but which apparently applies here. “It kind of flat lines a little bit. And that’s good. Your blood pressure remains very low for the most part.

9) Dallas Goedert @ DAL. The Eagles are 4-9-1, the last players from NFC East. But a victory over Dallas (5-9) put them back in the middle of things. Goedert has seen an extremely stable target floor since the injury returned, despite the presence of Zach Ertz. Since week 10, here are Goedert’s target scores per week: 6, 6, 10, 7, 6 and 8. Trust him in what must be a high-profile showdown, where Jalen Hurts must do everything he can to win in an unmissable game.
Your NFL Week 16 Matchup Guide: Will the Rams or Seahawks gain a divisive advantage? – The Ringer
Jalen Hurts is the first quarterback in NFL history to have 500 passing yards and 150 running yards in his first two matches. In addition to the numbers, its size is also impressive. Hurts had a reputation for being undisturbed in college and also seemed undisturbed in the NFL – which is a rare trait in a novice. But Philadelphia catches the Cowboys while they are recovering, and Dallas’s attack could show some life against Philly’s listless secondary.
NFL Picks: Predicting Week 16 against the spread – The Athletic
Both teams are still alive at NFC East. Jalen Hurts provided the Eagles with a bit of energy and, if nothing else, at least made them fun. Watching the Eagles for the first 13 weeks seemed like a chore. They were one of the most boring teams in the league. The Cowboys could be without a series of defensive holders, including linebacker Leighton Vander Esch (ankle) in this one. I think Hurts moves the ball consistently here and leads the Eagles to victory. The choice: Eagles (-2).

Hurts ‘mobility created problems for Eagles’ opponents, as he averaged 85 yards per game in his two games, including a 106-yard run against a difficult Saints defense. And while this is a problem for Cowboys, another element is just their ability to extend time in their pockets. This Dallas side is finally healthy and they can make moves, but as we saw against the 49ers on Sunday, if the defensive line cannot put pressure on the defender, there is enough time for the DBs to hold the receivers.
Ron Rivera Presser: The QB situation is confused, you may not make a decision about Alex Smith until the day of the game – Hogs Haven
Ron Rivera gave some updates on injuries on Christmas Eve and it was a mixed bag. Alex Smith may end up being a playing time decision, but Adam Schefter said it would be a challenge for him to play. Smith seemed optimistic that he would play yesterday, and Rivera said he is the only one who knows how he feels and needs to be honest about where he is physically with the team. Smith did some individual exercises today, but Dwayne Haskins Jr. continues to receive the team’s first clicks and is getting ready to start again on Sunday. Terry McLaurin missed his second day of training due to an ankle injury he has been dealing with for more than a month. Rivera said she would issue a game day assignment to him when needed.
