Jalen Hurts Voices Concern: “I Don’t Think Our Commitment Is Strong Enough”

Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links … Jalen Hurts: “We’re not committed enough” – PFT

“I’ve been talking about execution all year,” Hurts said. “Being on the same page, everyone being on the same page. We didn’t execute. I don’t think we’re, we’re all, we’re committed enough. Just got to turn it around. You know, it’s a challenge that we have to embrace. Just continue to see it through.” Hurts was asked what he means by that. “Commitment,” Hurts said. “I don’t have a dictionary on me now. . . . I don’t know how else to say that.” […] Hurts continued to emphasize that it starts with him. But his words carried a clear undercurrent. He’s trying to get everyone on the same page. He’s trying to get everyone committed. Something is missing.

Hurts was hampered by an illness that was severe enough that he traveled to Seattle separately from the team so as not to get any of his teammates sick. I think we can all agree that being sick sucks. You’re weak, you’re sometimes in pain, and you’re just not yourself. With that disclaimer out of the way, Hurts just didn’t have it on Monday night. He was 17 of 31 for 143 yards, 0 TDs, and 2 INTs. His deep shot to A.J. Brown with time winding down in the fourth quarter wasn’t there, but he fired up a YOLO ball anyway that was intercepted by Julian Love. Hurts made bad decisions and bad throws throughout the night, and looked nothing like the MVP caliber player he was a year ago.

Jalen Hurts toughed it out and played despite being sick. He ran for 82 yards and 2 TDs and did some really good things. But he also threw a pair of horrible INTs. Those picks were the difference in the game. Inexcusable mistakes. He has got to quit forcing the ball down the field. Those plays worked in 2022. Unfortunately it is 2023.

2. We’ve talked a ton about the coordinators and they haven’t been good – and that includes Matt Patricia – but you’ve got to point your finger squarely at Nick Sirianni after this one. Sirianni has taken his bows and he’s deserved to, but everything this team does is on him, and you can explain away the 49ers and Cowboys losses – very good teams on extra rest against a team that seemed gassed – but this? The Seahawks had lost four straight games, they started a backup quarterback with eight career wins in six seasons, they were down 10 points at halftime … and this? If you’re the head coach, you just can’t let this happen. Your offense managed seven points after their second possession. Your hand-picked new defensive coordinator just allowed a 92-yard game-winning drive in the last two minutes to Drew Lock for crying out loud. You’ve lost three straight games after a 10-1 start. You’re no longer an elite team. You’re no longer a Super Bowl contender. Sirianni has always responded when there’s been adversity, and this is adversity like he hasn’t experienced here. This is on him. Let’s see how he responds.

Hurts’ two fourth-quarter interceptions to Julian Love and 17th overall turnovers this season (as opposed to eight all the last year; 12 interceptions/5 lost fumbles). Love was there in the end zone with 8:08 left to play. Hurts was looking for Quez Watkins (why?), though replays showed Love had his right hand on Watkins’ jersey. Love made a great reaction sliding over left to help Tre Brown covering A.J. Brown down the sideline with :06 left. It was a great play by Love, who came over and got his feet down. The ball was underthrown by Hurts, who had two timeouts left and about 15 yards to go to put the game-tying field goal on Jake Elliott’s foot. Why go there when they could have opted to go to the middle of the field with timeouts left to position Elliott? Another huge key was Hurts holding the ball and looking at A.J. Brown all the way gave Love time to get over.

Philadelphia is officially in a rut. Nick Sirianni made the decision to swap defensive play-calling duties from Sean Desai to Matt Patricia, and the switch largely worked — at least, until the Seahawks’ final drive of significance. Despite the final numbers, Philadelphia’s run defense was improved on a per-down basis, frequently stonewalling attempts. But the consistency still wasn’t there, as evidenced by Walker’s 23-yard touchdown run, Walker’s 15-yard catch-and-run on a drive that ended in a field goal, and Lock’s 92-yard game-winning drive. Placing James Bradberry in single coverage in a Cover 1 look should have worked out, at least on paper, considering the Seahawks were short on time with no timeouts available. But it didn’t because Bradberry didn’t protect deep, highlighting a lack of situational coaching emphasis that has become too prevalent for the Eagles this season. They haven’t played a complete game all season and are struggling at a terrible time. They can only hope a meeting with the Cardinals (sandwiched by two dates with the Giants) ends up being the remedy they need.

Sirianni: In Eagles’ ‘best interest’ to hand defense to Patricia – ESPN

A major shake-up in the Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive coaching ranks appeared to have some positive effect Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks, but a unit that has struggled for much of the season let down in the game’s biggest moment, leading to a 20-17 defeat that extended the Eagles’ losing streak to three games. Senior assistant Matt Patricia took over playcalling this week for D-coordinator Sean Desai. Coach Nick Sirianni said after Monday’s game that Patricia now has final say over the defense. Players said they were notified of the change early last week and that Patricia ran the defensive meetings during the lead-up to the Seattle game. “I made the decision,” Sirianni said. “I did what I thought I needed to do in the best interest of the football team. We made some adjustments there. Didn’t feel like we were playing and coaching well enough on defense, so I made an adjustment.”

Rookie spotlight: Eagles first-round pick Jalen Carter managed to add to his sack total, but it was his only pressure of the night, according to PFF’s first-run analysis. After looking unblockable at times to start the year, Carter has been held to just one pressure over his past two games.

Pete Carroll’s timeout management. If Lock doesn’t deliver the drive of his life, we’d be zeroed in on how Pete Carroll mismanaged the game. Seattle burned two timeouts on 4th down attempts in the 4th quarter. The second timeout was with the play clock running to 0, and Pete wanted to prevent a delay of game. Not sure there would’ve been a DOG penalty, but the bad thing that resulted was the Eagles getting another look at that Jalen Carter sack and overturning 4th and 2 into 4th and 9. That left the Seahawks with one timeout, no shot at a touchdown, and zero room for error on defense the rest of the way. There was also the end of half where the Seahawks were about to use a timeout to avoid a 10-second runoff on Drew Lock’s grounding penalty, only for Carroll to inexplicably not ask for the TO and let the issue with the refs go unchallenged, although the Seahawks already had their red flag and thus could not toss it for a challenge flag, but any timeout would’ve prevented the runoff.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ latest game against the Seattle Seahawks has brought to light a number of critical issues and concerns. The team’s quarterback, Jalen Hurts, has expressed concerns about the team’s commitment and execution, citing the need for everyone to be on the same page. Hurts acknowledges that he needs to lead by example but also believes that something is missing and that the team needs to embrace the challenge ahead.

Hurts’ performance was hampered by an illness, which led to a disappointing game for the Eagles. Although he displayed moments of greatness, he also made decisions and throws that cast doubts on his abilities. The defeat has raised questions about the team’s coaching decisions and defensive performance, with fans and analysts expressing disappointment at the Eagles’ recent struggles.

Following the loss, head coach Nick Sirianni is under increased scrutiny, with criticism directed at his leadership and coaching decisions. The defensive coaching staff has also undergone a major shakeup, with mixed results, leading to widespread concerns about the team’s future prospects.

Regardless, there is hope that the team can overcome its recent setbacks and rediscover its winning form. The Eagles’ struggles prompt the hope that they will respond positively to adversity and put in the necessary effort to improve their performances.

As the Eagles navigate these challenges, the team’s supporters remain hopeful that they will find a path to success and fulfill their potential. Despite their recent disappointments, the team has shown flashes of brilliance throughout the season, and with the right adjustments and a renewed commitment, they can turn things around.

The road ahead presents clear obstacles for the Eagles, but their resilience and determination suggest that they have the potential to emerge from this difficult period and rediscover their winning form. It remains to be seen how the team will respond to their recent setbacks, but there is optimism that they have the talent and drive to overcome their challenges and achieve success in the future.

Let’s see if the Eagles can rise to the occasion and overcome adversity as they strive to reclaim their status as a competitive and elite NFL team.
