Jalen Hurts has seized his opportunity as the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback, stepping up as Carson Wentz’s tenure with the team came to a close. With Hurts waiting in the wings, the Eagles entrusted him with the role, and he delivered impressively.

Emerging as both a leader and a beloved figure in Philadelphia, Hurts has commanded the team’s respect and trust. Despite the Philadelphia Eagles facing challenges in making a deep playoff run last season, Hurts has firmly established himself as the team’s linchpin, earning the confidence of both coaches and teammates in his ability to lead their on-field endeavors.

In a recent appearance on the Bird and Taurasi Show during the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, Hurts fielded various questions about his NFL journey.

Among them was whether he engages in trash-talking during games. Hurts revealed his belief in letting his performance speak for itself, reserving words only when necessary.

“I feel like I don’t say too much unless you say something to me. Everybody has a different competitive nature.”

While trash-talking is a common practice among many players, Hurts opts for a more composed approach on the field. His preference is to maintain a calm demeanor, aiming to keep a clear head especially in high-pressure moments.

Hurts’ philosophy reflects his focus on letting his actions do the talking, potentially paving the way for the Eagles to progress further in the upcoming 2024 season and beyond.

It will be interesting to see if Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles can get things turned back around during the upcoming 2024 NFL season.
