The Philadelphia Eagles traded away Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts earlier this offseason, which means they will head into the 2021 season with Jalen Hurts as their starting quarterback, right? Not so fast. New head coach Nick Sirianni isn’t ready to give the job to Hurts just yet.
Being a head coach during the draft process was an adjustment in itself for Sirianni, as he now looks at the entire class as opposed to just one side of the ball. When Sirianni watched defensive ends in this year's class, for example, he evaluated them with his mind on how he would game plan against said player. He said Defensive Coordinator Jonathan Gannon has done the same when it comes to offensive players.
Word first emerged in March that the Philadelphia Eagles were proposing their onside kick alternative for the second year in a row. You know, the scenario where the kicking team would be allowed to set up a 4th-and-15 from their own 25-yard line? Yeah, well, that proposal isn’t passing this year.
