Jalen Hurts has gotten some great comparisons over the years, and the latest is to a basketball star.
Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni compared Jalen Hurts to Michael Jordan when the coach as asked about the emotional lift Hurts offered the team Saturday. Of course, the game was a great one for the Eagles, with the team stomping over the Giants, 38-7, in an NFC divisional round playoff game.
“I know this is high praise, but to have him out there is like having — I shouldn’t even go there — it’s like having Michael Jordan out there,” Sirianni said after the game via ESPN. “He’s your leader. He’s your guy.
He added, “Hopefully, that’s the biggest respect I can pay to him, comparing his ability to being on the field to a Michael Jordan type. This guy leads. He brings this calmness to the entire team. He plays great football. He’s as tough as they come. To me, nobody has played any better football than him this year.”
