Jalen Hurts has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week (again).
“I think that’s what’s been going on all year,” coach Nick Sirianni said after the game. “He’s got three interceptions on the year, so he’s been pretty careful with the ball while being aggressive. That’s the art, right? Being aggressive and being able to create explosive plays while taking care of the football. That’s why he’s the way he is. He can play a position that a lot of people in this world play. Offensive because you want to be. You know explosive plays are the keys to being successful offensively, but you know turnovers can also doom you. So there’s an art to that, and he’s done a good job all year. Today, especially, a lot of shots were off. When a lot of shots are off, usually there’s only one guy who can get it. It’s our guy or their corner. .”
two weeks Two wins. Hurts had two huge games in different ways, both recognized by the league with individual honors. For Hurts, of course, it’s about the team. He understands that the only way to succeed individually is to succeed as a team.
And that’s what’s happening with Hurts and the Eagles in 2022.
“I think we’re just trying to go out there and do our job individually and as a team. Nothing’s ever done well unless every guy does his job and dominates his box and that’s what we try to do,” Hurts said. after Sunday’s victory. “I come up here (to meet the media) and I give these analogies to steakhouses or whatever, but that’s our reality. We work really hard and we prepare really hard, and sometimes it looks different. Regardless of how we’re doing offensively. Defense one, we want to execute everything we’re doing. We want to make the right plays, make the right decisions with the football, protect the football and put points on the board. At the start of the game, we talk about the things we can control, self-inflicted injuries, personal fouls, holdings, false starts
“Those are things we can control and those are the things we need to clean up after thinking about it today. We want to keep growing. It’s an old message for me. We want to keep growing, we want to keep going up, to keep learning from everything we do, good and bad, and grow from there.” .
