Super Bowl is in the rearview, though barely as the Rams celebrated their win yesterday with a parade witnessed by tens of thousands Angelenos as opposed to the 1.5 million Philadelphians who celebrated the Eagles four years ago.
So, now we focus on 2022.
And here’s what Pro Football Focus thinks of the Eagles offseason scenarios:
Best case: Make a deal for a top veteran quarterback in exchange for draft capital
Worst case: Jalen Hurts is still the QB1 for 2022
That’s a highly unlikely scenario, but it’s one that shouldn’t be discounted given what the Eagles have to offer.
Jalen Hurts being the team’s QB1 for 2022 is indeed the worst-case scenario, but it is not a terrible situation.
Hurts is a certified playmaker on broken plays and when scrambling, but his reliance on those plays is also an understandable concern. He ranked 24th in passing grade inside the pocket and turned in more turnover-worthy plays than big-time throws when clean from pressure.
