The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots on Sunday (Sept. 10), but the game was a bit more competitive than many thought. Still, a win is a win, and I’ll take it. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts spoke to reporters after the game. He echoed the belief that a win is a win, and that’s all that matters. It’s kind of funny, though, because after the Super Bowl loss to Kansas City, Hurts implied it wasn’t all about winning, because when you “lose,” it’s not really a loss, because you learn. So, is Jalen Hurts changing his tune? Maybe a little. But he’s allowed. After all, he’s one of the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL right now.
Is Jalen Hurts Changing His Tune Following Patriots Win?
After the Eagles-Patriots game, Hurts told reporters, “First and foremost, I think that’s a great win- you know, a great win for us being able to be resilient. Obviously, for me, winning is the only thing that matters and it’s something that I’ve always said.”
Also in the press conference, Hurts talked about how he wants the Eagles to continue to grow, and he believes that’s happening. He added that it’s “always better when you win,” which again, isn’t quite what he said after the Super Bowl. But, he’s right that you can learn and grow not just from your losses but also from your wins.
The next game will be an exciting one for the Eagles. The team will take on the Minnesota Vikings Thursday (Sept. 14) night in Philly. Kirk Cousins and Jalen Hurts will make for a great match-up. Cousins recently expressed sympathy for Aaron Rodgers getting that season-ending injury last weekend. Meanwhile, before the season started, the AP ranked Hurts as the No. 5 quarterback in the NFL just behind Rodgers.
