Super Bowl Champ mentions, “I’m buying it in a big way. I believe that football is one at the line of scrimmage, and when you look at the Eagles, they have the best offensive line and the best defensive line in the NFC East. You’re talking about a quarterback going into his second season as a starter. I believe in what Nick Sirriani is building in Philadelphia Eagles to win the division.”

“Jalen Hurts has to be better at throwing the football. I disagree in terms of the area of improvement. Jalen Hurts has to be better on the short and intermediate passes with his accuracy.

So that should be an area where we see Jalen Hurts’ game take a quantum leap.”
