Jeffrey Lurie Reportedly Gave Directive to Play Jalen Hurts
It has been an interesting couple of weeks to say the least for the Philadelphia Eagles team. It feels like a drama TV series where there are a ton of cliffhangers and crazy storylines dropping.
Jeff McLane, Philadelphia Inquirer, broke a story about how frustrated Jeffrey Lurie is to the point where he was not in Cleveland for the game against the Browns.
In Saturday's press conference, November 28, prior the Seattle Seawhawks game, Doug Pederson was asked about Jalen Hurts and mentioned Hurts got the same number of reps as he would normally during a week of practice.
Then it was reported that Hurts first-team snaps at practice this week were increased. Was Pederson technically wrong if the snap count was the same, but more were with the starters? Technically no, but the issue with messaging has been a problem all year long.
It is very fair to question how much say Pederson has right now with decisions. If Lurie is upset with the outcome each week, does he have his fingerprints on the team? Geoff Mosher, Inside the Birds, reported Lurie gave directive to play Hurts if Carson Wentz struggles.
