    Hurts is... NOT the starter!

    Hurts will need to beat out Joe Flacco for the starting job, apparently.

    This likely means the Eagles expect to add a QB in the draft with whom Hurts will actually compete.

    That doesn’t necessarily mean it will be a 1st round QB though.

    Oh...Hurts will beat out Flacco.

    Flacco is a good backup but he's toast as a starter

    this is news? It's his second year in the league and he's not a franchise QB yet. Tyrod Taylor was starting over Herbert last year, so Herbert is a bust then right?

    This is like the 3rd or 4th time they’ve said this.

    Note: draft is 8 days away. Lotta smoke screens

    Sirianni can say things like that but ultimately it's not his decision.

    True. He’s probably just saying what he’s been told to say

    Yeah he's had 2 online meetings with the team so he officially can't assess any of the players yet. But as you say, the owner/GM will decide which QB gets to play.


    Regardless, I don't think Hurts and Flacco would have the same offense designed for them, since they have different talents (and ages). So having "a competition" means either a wider playbook, or a playbook tailored to one of the two QBs.

    this isnt shocking... No starter spot should be a given with how bad the eagles will be. Its smart. Besides after this upcoming season the eagles will trade 2 firsts plus for rodgers.

    I heard a rumor the Eagles offered 3 1sts and 2 2nds to the Jaguars to get the #1 overall pick.





    'course I heard that rumor from me...just now when I typed it
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Given how many people say Flacco should retire, is terrible, etc the thing is more that there in theory cannot be a competition between him and Hurts.

    So either the Eagles front office thinks Flacco is a starting grade QB or they think Hurts is bad (and should therefore be drafting a QB in the 1st round). If they think Hurts and Flacco are on the same ability level, it was negligent to trade back from 6 to 12.
