How is this possible? He would have been the MVP of the league if he did not get injured. He led the birds to the Super Bowl. He made one mistake in the biggest game of the year but other than that, he was amazing!
I can see them ranking 2 or 3 quarterbacks over Jalen Hurts but 6? Are you kidding?
Let’s just look at his numbers from last year. He played in 15 games in the regular season and went 14-1. He had a completion percentage of 66.5% while throwing for 3,701 yards and 22 touchdowns with only 6 picks.
Now onto his rushing numbers. 760 rushing yards with 13 toucdowns.
That equates to 4,461 total yards and 35 total touchdowns. Did I mention he came in 2nd in MVP voting behind Patrick Mahomes who is arguably the best player on the planet.
I’m not sure what Pro Football Focus is watching but it could be an anti-Eagles bias. On a better note… A few Eagles did make the list.
Lane Johnson came in at #15. AJ Brown took #25. Lastly, Jason Kelce came in at #46.
Another Eagles snub isH Hasson Reddick. He made the Pro Bowl. He was 4th in Defensive Player of the Year voting and was named 2nd Team All-Pro honors.
How in the heck is he not a top 50 player? The guy had 16 sacks! 16!
The Eagles hate is definitely real. The NFC Champion and Super Bowl runner-up only has 3 members of it’s team in the top 50 of the NFL. Does this mean that the Birds are just loaded with great talent or are we being hated on again? I choose the latter.
