The Washington Football team was a great field position against the Philadelphia Eagles thanks to Dallas Goedert and a ridiculous distraction.
Garrett Gilbert is Washington’s quarterback who, due to his limited experience with the practice team, has taken very few snapshots in the soccer team’s system. WFT is without starter Taylor Heinicke and replacement Kyle Allen, meaning Gilbert has been forced to act.
The first trip went as predicted – a three and out. However, Washington was given a little luck on the Eagles’ first drive.
Jalen Hurts made a nice throw to Dallas Goedert in third place, who was dropped by the Eagles’ tight end. What looked like an incomplete passport turned out to be a kick that hit Goedert’s heel.
For once, the officers were right, but the Eagles were still screwed up.
Eagles: is it time to put Jalen Hurts on the bench?
When Hurts was out, backup quarterback Gardner Minshew played quite well and served as the spark plug for the Eagles offensive. Some wonder if Hurts is the right man for the Philadelphia job.
It was always unlikely that Hurts was the long-term starter in Philadelphia, as Nick Sirianni was at least looking for his own young quarterback to look after at some point. Sirianni didn’t design Hurts. That was with Doug Pederson.
Still, Hurts has played well at times this year. With a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 13: 8, hurts in passing isn’t bad enough to warrant a bench press. On the ground, Hurts is nearly 700 yards away and has eight hits of his own.
It’s safe to say that Hurts has made a living this season. As unlikely as this interception was, the smart money can be traced back to the Alabama / Oklahoma product recovering.
