Jalen Hurts: A.J. Brown Sets High Standards for Himself and Teammates

Published on


On his teammates frustration

After the game, Hurts was spotted in the locker room having conversations with DeVonta Smith and Jason Kelce. He disclosed that these conversations occur every game, but they are not always visible to everyone – it is all in the pursuit of excellence. Hurts emphasized the importance of all 11 players and great communication in order to play at the level they desire.

“Those conversations go on just for the betterment of us as a team. Talking about what we saw, and how we can continue to move forward.”

When asked about A.J. Brown’s frustration after the Giants game, Hurts declined to speak for the wideout.

“I don’t know. I know he’s a competitive person. He demands a lot out of himself, and that goes for anyone else in the locker room. Like I said, he has a standard for himself and he’s not compromising that. He’s demanding that of himself, and he wants that out of his teammates, as well, and everyone around him.”

On Eagles QB coach Alex Tanney

Hurts mentioned that Tanney has always been around and has always played a role, although his role has changed a bit this year. He also noted that it has been a year of learning and growth for the entire quarterback room.

On getting a win against the Giants

When asked if the win against the Giants puts the team back on track to where they want to be at this point of the season, Hurts emphasized that they are on a continuous journey of improvement and growth. He stressed that winning is the ultimate goal and it surely helps the trajectory of a team.

Hurts also mentioned that after enjoying the victory for 24 hours, he looks to areas where he can improve and learn from his experiences. He highlighted the value of every game and every rep as a learning opportunity.

In response to the team’s perceived lack of excitement about winning, Hurts emphasized that everyone has different motivations and as long as the team is united and on the same page, their reactions to a win do not matter.

On facing former DC Jonathan Gannon

Regarding his familiarity with former DC Jonathan Gannon, Hurts acknowledged that the familiarity goes both ways.

“Obviously, I have a lot of respect for Coach Gannon and Coach Nick [Rallis] over there. Built a good relationship with him, and it’ll be a challenge for us.

I know how he is. I know his enthusiasm and his love for the game, and I know the team they have over there, so we have to be ready to play — play at a high level.”

Hurts also mentioned that he spoke to Gannon last year during practice to gain insights, and he continues to do the same this year with Matt Patricia.

He also commented on the Cardinals’ defense, praising their great players and emphasizing the need for the Eagles’ offense to execute and play clean football in order to succeed against them.
