Eagles’ Jalen Hurts Reveals Bold Details About New Offense

Offseason workouts are when NFL teams start installing their offensive and defensive packages and start to build the chemistry, habits and mentality they hope will result in lots of success during the upcoming season. Sometimes, when a team falls apart the way the Philadelphia Eagles did late last season when they lost five of their last six regular season games, significant changes are needed.

However, it is debatable whether they have gone too far.

With a new offensive coordinator in Kellen Moore on board, the team has made some changes on offense.

But according to quarterback Jalen Hurts, almost all of the offense the team has instituted is new.

Last season, the Eagles were the defending NFC champs after going to the Super Bowl and blowing a 10-point halftime lead there to the Kansas City Chiefs. Early on, they were gliding along, winning games with regularity, and it looked like they would start to turn things up as the winter approached.

But they continued to have trouble winning games with ease, and quite often, they had to come from behind to put Ws on the board. It compounded in their late-season plunge and their 32-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the wild-card round of the playoffs.

As Philly lost game after game last December and January, there was speculation that head coach Nick Sirianni was on the hot seat and that perhaps he would be fired, or that he should’ve at least been fired. But he kept his job, and instead, there was a shakeup underneath him.

Defensive coordinator Sean Desai, who was stripped of play calling duties during the season, was fired, and he was replaced by veteran Vic Fangio.

The team’s new offensive coordinator is Kellen Moore, who was behind the Dallas Cowboys’ high-powered offenses from 2019 to 2022.

Philly’s cast on offense remains mostly the same as it was last season.

Wide receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith got contract extensions this offseason, and tight end Dallas Goedert remains on the roster. While center Jason Kelce has retired, their offensive line is still arguably the best in the NFL.

The one big change is the arrival of star running back Saquon Barkley, who left the New York Giants and headed down I-95 to join the Eagles in free agency.

One should expect the Eagles to be back in the running for NFC supremacy this coming season. However, with 95 percent of their offense being new, according to Jalen Hurts, don’t be surprised if they have some kinks to iron out in September and October.
