Eagles News: Jalen Hurts’ progress questioned

Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …

Jalen Hurts’ poor training performance highlights Eagles’ risk of regression in 2022 – Reuters Sports News
As of Week 8 of last season, only three NFL quarterbacks had a lower passer rating than Hurts 79.8 (minimum 200 attempts). They were Zach Wilson, Baker Mayfield and Trevor Lawrence. Among 26 quarterbacks, he ranked 23rd in interception percentage, 23rd in completion percentage, 24th in passing touchdowns. All of these numbers represent a significant regression from those he posted in the first seven weeks of the season. That doesn’t prove anything, of course. Above all, it’s a reason to question the idea that Hurts is bound to take “another step forward” this year. After all, that implies he definitely took his first last year. The quarterback we saw in practice on Thursday looked disconcertingly like the one who struggled to do anything substantial in the Eagles’ playoff loss to the Bucs. The league adapts quickly, especially when given an offseason to do so. The Eagles made the playoffs primarily because of Sirianni’s ability to design an offense that makes the most of Hurts’ strengths while hiding his weaknesses. But you can’t hide in the NFL forever. Thursday was a reminder of the progress Hurts still needs to make. The advantage of this quarterback and this offense is real. But so does the risk that things will end up going the other way.

After practice, I asked several members of the media if they thought Hurts was stock, stock or stock. Everyone agreed that the stock was not an option. Some were between par and down…although even one of Hurts’ biggest supporters thought it was a clear down. After going through my notes, the bad outweighed the good. Too many times he held the ball forever. It’s kind of a feast or famine in that respect, with the ball either coming out very fast or taking all day to throw. Falling stock.

Offensive Spending – NFL Preseason 202 – Over The Cap
Top left are mostly teams with rookie QBs or questionable QB situations that go out and spend on offense. For Jalen Hurts, it’s clearly a big year for him and the Eagles. He has a ton of talent to work with and will be eligible for an extension after the season. The same can probably be said for Miami.

Hurts was the toughest guy to rank here for obvious reasons. Some people like it and some don’t. However, I couldn’t put him outside the top 12 because beyond the limits he’s still a monster on the pitch and has so many dual threat skills. Russ wanted to place him sixth but we settled for a little lower.

Michael Lombardi: fake and stupid *** – PhillyVoice
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has also been credibly accused — but not punished for — of pressuring former head coach Brian Flores for canceling an entire season, which, you know, doesn’t is not exactly on the same level as when the Eagles were 4-10-1 and they did everything they could to lose a game in week 17 of 2020 against the Washington football team of the era with their season already prepared. It’s like the bank robbers in Heat are caught instead of killed, and in a sequel their attorney says, “Hey Judge, what about that 10-year-old boy who stole Skittles from the 7 to 11? Eh? What about him, Judge? Anyway, to conclude, Mike Lombardi remains a fool.

Eagles stock up, stock up after round 2 of training camp – NBCSP
BY Brandon Graham. Graham doesn’t look like a 34-year-old guy coming off an Achilles tendon injury. Even though he’s in 13th grade, Graham is still a great practice player. He made Jack Driscoll’s life miserable this summer as he works with second-team defense. And Graham is still a monster in those OL-DL drills.

Dick Vermeil: “There will be tears” – PE.com
Eight minutes. It’s deadline time for Dick Vermeil’s acceptance speech on Saturday when he will be the final inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Eight minutes. How do you sum up a lifetime of coaching and broadcasting and serving as an ambassador for the game and the NFL in 480 seconds? “I’ve thought enough to talk for five hours,” Vermeil tells me as we walk along the porch of his spacious, fully comfortable and welcoming estate in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. “It’s a bit scary.” Vermeil has a game plan because, well, he’s a coach. The coach who saved the Eagles from obscurity in the 1970s after then-owner Leonard Tose hired Vermeil after a Rose Bowl victory as head coach of UCLA. Vermeil’s job was to instill some dignity in a franchise that hadn’t made the playoffs since, sip, winning the NFL championship in 1960, to bring dignity to a program that had fallen to the bottom. of the NFL. Vermeil’s time with the Eagles began in 1976 and, the truth is, there was no better game made anywhere.

Cowboys rookie kicker had a rough start to camp – Blogging The Boys

Giants offensive depth chart / roster review: What things look like at this stage of training camp – Big Blue View
Let’s start with Daniel Jones. The first few days of training camp were uneven for the fourth-year quarterback. This week, Jones has been much sharper. He kicked the ball beautifully on Wednesday and, in my eyes, didn’t make any questionable decisions. Blips and a few rough days are to be expected. Head coach Brian Daboll said the Giants are still experimenting with passing concepts, trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t with their staff. Many routes also have options that require communication between quarterback and receiver, and fixing that will be a work in progress.
