When it comes to bringing in the most talented quarterback in the NFC East, there might be a new top dog in town.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts are shedding tears to open the year 2022 NFL Season. He has completed 69.8% of his passes for 576 yards with a touchdown and interception in two games this season. Hurts also dealt damage on the ground, swooping 147 yards and three touchdowns to put the Eagles off to a 2-0 start.
The 24-year-old signal caller was arguably the best game of his NFL career on Monday night in a 24-7 win over Minnesota Vikings. He threw for 333 yards (the most he got in a winning attempt) and dashed 57 yards for a touchdown and two quick scores.
“Jerry Jones saw what we saw right?” McCoy said on Thursday “Speak.” “When he watched the Eagles play and watched Jalen Hurts put the ball out and score, throw a bomb 60 yards deep. He saw what we saw! That allowed him to think ‘Oh my god. , I wish my quarterback could do it. Good heavens, my quarterback is making hundreds of millions of dollars and he can’t do it.’
“This child can [make those big plays]. I love talking about potential. Many teams select players and they pay based on potential. I see greater potential in Jalen Hurts than in Dak Prescott. I’m not a big Dak Prescott guy. “
Like Prescott, Hurts helped lead his team to the knockout stages in his first full season as a starter.
In his 21 career starts, Hurts hit a record 11-10, while throwing 4,639 yards, 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions with a pass of 86.1. He also added 1,203 yards of javelin and 16 rushed touchdowns during that time.
On the other hand, Prescott holds the record of 15-6 through his first 21 starts, throwing 4,859 yards, 34 touchdowns and eight interceptions with a pass of 101.6. He added 408 yards of javelin and 8 touchdowns in that span.
However, McCoy believes we have yet to see the best from the Hurts.
“I’m playing real football here,” McCoy said. “I didn’t say ‘Oh, he’s the starting midfielder, give him everything.’ No, it takes time!He’s a young defender.It’s the third year.
“When do you think I’ll do my first All-Pro? My third year. It takes time. Second year, I’ve been playing football. But I’m not a guy yet. This year, he’s going to be a guy. And Dallas is struggling to have a guy.”
