  • is Jalen hurts the starting quarterback for Philly.

  • Moving forward.

  • You think?

  • Yeah, I think so.

  • I'm not gonna go out on a limb and say that Jalen Hurts is gonna be like the franchise quarterback that they He's gonna earn some long term deal at some point because I think it's too early to tell all that.

  • But what it's not too early to tell is he's the best quarterback they have in the building, and they're not gonna be in position, Nor should they be considering going after a new quarterback in the draft.

  • And maybe there's something out there in free agency.

  • But I feel like we're pretty sure that Carson Wentz is not the answer, so I'm not sure who else they're gonna put at quarterback to start next season.

  • Maybe Jalen Hurts loses it at some point throughout next season, but everything he's shown, considering that he was a rookie who was not planning to get much playtime, they dropped him in this situation.

  • And the offense has been by most statistical measures and by our own, I test the offense and the defense.

  • Frankly, the team in general feels like it's been better.

  • It's been in a better place has been moving in a better direction despite the fact that they lost the last two games.

  • This seems like a respectable team, which they weren't before.

  • And we watched all the reasons why people made excuses for Carson Winston.

  • I feel bad saying their excuses.

  • There were good reasons, like the depletion of the office in line and the playmakers and the play calling like there are a lot of things wrong with that equals team outside of Carson Wentz.

  • But all those things that seem to disappear when Jalen Hurts came in.

  • So I'm not sure how you could argue that this team could go back to Carson Wentz and there is no other easy answer out there.

  • So it feels like it's Jalen hurts.

  • Or at least it should be.

  • Maybe it won't be, but it should be.

  • Jalen hurts his job.

  • Thio lose next season.

  • Si, dumb.

  • Toward the end, you started to get it.

  • See, at first you were talking as Dominique Chestnut.

  • Fox works, right?

  • That's when you started out.

  • As you were like I'm gonna talk.

  • I'm gonna talk for me, right?

  • I came on with my cool first take outfit, and I feel really good about the comparisons that has been made to my looks.

  • And so we talk about what I think.

  • But that ain't what Doug Peterson has to think, right?

  • That's not what the Philadelphia Eagles organization has to think.

  • And you got to remember what happens is you have these biases, right, whether they're positive or negative, right?

  • Like there was the bias off watching Carson Wentz in 2017 seeing Carson Wentz take backups and practice squad players to the playoffs last year.

  • That led to him being able to stink it up for so long this season, right, because he had deposited some things in your emotional bank account that made you remember how good he was.

  • And then there was some negative bias is right, the same biases that people like Rex Ryan and you even said on TV when you were like We don't know if Jalen Hurts has the skill set to be a great starting quarterback, right?

  • You just said we don't really know if he's earned the franchise yet, and so when you have these questions and then you see that second half, you see the Dallas Cowboys deploy a little defense that has a spy on Jalen hurts the three late turnovers.

  • You might go.

  • Oh, shoot.

  • Maybe we're not sure.

  • Uh, maybe he's not our guy.

  • And I mean, we gave the other guy 110 million.

  • At least We've seen him play like an M V P.

  • So I don't know if Jalen Hurts has earned it.

  • Maybe if they're three and no or two and one with him, you say that he's earned.

  • And yes, to the eye test.

  • They look better.

  • Yes, statistically, as an offense, they are better.

  • He has produced.

  • But there's still one and two.

  • And if you're going to say to yourself, You know what we just think, period.

  • Whether jail is the quarterback, Carson is the quarterback.

  • I don't know if that necessarily means he's earn the trust off the organization to be the quarterback going forward.

  • And you know, don't be.

  • Don't be coy.

  • Don't be food.

  • You know, Jalen hurts.

  • Gotta earn it.

  • Earn it right.

  • Like in New Orleans, you don't Sometimes we don't use, you know, we don't put the adjective or or the adverb in front of the word and say, You know what?

  • He has to play extremely well.

  • No, we were like, You gotta play good, good to get it.

  • You feel me, And that's where Jalen hurts in right now.

  • So having these little pickups not necessarily finishing two games, I think, puts the Eagles in the place where they can talk themselves back into a quarterback competition or talk themselves back into Carson Wentz being the guy.

  • And that's the part that I think it makes it a little murky.

  • I think you're right, you're right.

  • If it's at all close, and I think whether you meant to or not, you probably made a really good point.

  • That's broader to sports, a general social commentary about us all having biases and everything we do.

  • We bring the biases toe everything we think and say, discuss all decision we make.

  • We bring biases.

  • The problem is so few people are aware of the biases they bring, so they think that they've landed on some conclusion based on strictly fax, and I think that's the problem.

  • You need to understand that part of the reason why you feel the way you feel, you think the way you think because you're the biases you have brought to the table, so you're probably right.

  • I think we probably agree on this more than we disagree.

  • Your If the question is, has Jalen Hurts won the job?

  • Maybe not.

  • Has he earned the job or earned the one spot?

  • Absolutely.

  • There's no reason not to.

  • But there's so many factors that are leading into these biases, including the 100 plus million dollars that they promised the Carson Wentz that's gonna lead into the bias and including the way Carson Wentz looks.

  • That's gonna lead into the bias.

  • He's the stereotypical 65 white guy played quarterback that's gonna lead into the bias.

  • And Jalen Hurts is not that by any stretch.

  • But I think you could point to other people out there, like Russell Wilson or Kyler Murray, a smaller guys who are athletic, who have made it work to find some other bias to convince you that maybe Jalen Hurts is gonna be the guy, but you need to understand the biases that you bring to the table.

  • But the reason that I landed on Jalen hurts winning the job is not because I'm I'm oblivious to the fact that there may be biases in Carson Wentz favor.

  • It's because of Jason Kelsey.

  • That's why Jason Kelsey, the center all Pro center on that team, gave a speech a couple weeks ago at a press conference that made it quite clear to me he didn't put no names on it when made it clear that it is about winning, that it's gonna be impossible toe walk into that locker room as a coach general manager.

  • Anybody's gonna be impossible toe put to put Carson Wentz back in that spot jailers wanted because the team's feels like it will revolt if they don't give it to.

  • Yeah, well, I mean, winning is is the key priority for every team and guys and other NFC East quarterback related news.

  • Ron Rivera that go to the Washington football team just said this morning that next week in the regular season finale Week 17 Taylor Hi, Nikki will be the starter, not Dwayne Haskins.

  • That is, if Alex Smith is unable to play.

  • So it has been a rough, rough week for Haskins.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
