The Eagles are sticking to what works on offense, which means a continued dosage of Shane , Steichen, as the team’s primary play caller in 2022.

Even after Philadelphia led the NFL in rushing last season, the Birds will look to increase their downfield passing after acquiring A.J. Brown via trade.

Recently, Steichen met with the media and discussed Browns’ physicality, the battle at right guard, and Jalen Hurt’s progress entering year three with the Eagles.

He’s going to bring toughness. This guy is relentless. When you watch him on film, he’s hard to tackle. He’s a big-body receiver that’s very explosive, and when you see him on the practice field running routes, you can see the play strength, the explosive ability, in and out of breaks, and he just brings a great mindset to that room.

Hurts himself has admitted that 2022 will be the first time he’s had the same offensive system in back-to-back seasons since high school.

I think what you’ve said is right. I think he said it, he hasn’t been in the same system since high school, dating back to high school. So just the terminology part, talking through it, it’s easy to talk in meetings right now. We’re having great discussions out on the practice field, just calling plays, getting in and out of the huddle, communicating with the wide outs, all those things, timing, anticipation, working through all those things, it’s been good to see.
