Jalen Hurts: Good, but not good enough – PE.com
After the Eagles won 38-35 on the road, the Eagles’ first game of the 2022 season, Jalen Hurts, Quarterback, left Ford Field. His stats showed 243 yards passing on 18-of 32, 90 rushing yards and one touchdown on 17 runs. Most importantly – there’s a tally in the win column, and it’s one that should be attributed to Hurts. His athleticism, particularly his propensity to scramble when his first and second reads weren’t available – saved the offense in the Week 1 affair. “I just thought it was a good all-around game that he had, and I thought he was seeing the defense well and getting us to what we needed to get to,” Head Coach Nick Sirianni said on Monday. “I really thought he played a really good game.” The team persevered for a three-point win, but still, Hurts’ focus remains locked on what it has been all offseason – improvement. “It didn’t meet my standards today. It didn’t; I’ll just say that,” Hurts said. […] “We barely could hear him, but how he managed the game, I think he did really well. I’m sure he is going to say it wasn’t good enough. But that’s the mentality he has,” Brown said. The sentiment among the team is clear – winning is great, especially in Week 1, but their shared standard hasn’t been met yet. “I’m grateful he has that mentality because for all of us, it wasn’t good enough. You know, that’s how we’re going to look at it,” Brown said.

Jalen played a great game, according to me. Good, but not great. He ran 90 yards and ran for a touchdown. He threw for 243 yard. Hurts didn’t turn the ball over and ran away from multiple sacks. On third down, he moved his chains. Eagles’ QB sneak at the end of the game was crucial in sealing the victory. There were some issues. Late in the first period, my biggest complaint was. There were only 14 seconds left on the clock and the Eagles had run out of timeouts. Jalen was directed by me via the TV to throw into the end zone. If you complete the pass inbounds, there probably won’t be enough time to spike the ball and stop the clock. Jalen didn’t listen to my coaching. He inbounds threw it to Kenny Gainwell. Unfortunately, the pass was not accurate and incomplete. It could have cost three Eagles points, and dramatically changed the game. He’s got to be smarter in future situations. In that case, there is nothing wrong in settling for the FG. You can’t risk running out of time. I didn’t like the Eagles passing game in the red zone. They went 4 for 5 in the red zone due to the run game, but the passing plays didn’t look good. I’m not sure if the coaches didn’t call good plays, Jalen didn’t do a good job or Detroit’s defense overwhelmed them with good blitzes. It could have been a combination of all three. The Eagles need to be able effectively to throw the ball in red zone. That’s something to watch in the next few weeks.

Jalen Hurts showed how much he’s grown in beating Detroit – SB Nation
The Eagles soared to the top of the NFC East conversation thanks to a stellar offseason and mounting injuries in Dallas. The biggest question for the Eagles as they approached the 2022 NFL season was: Will quarterback Jalen Hurts live to the expectations or will inconsistent quarterback play mean that the Eagles would fall short of their goals? The NFL world is wildly reacting to the opening game of the new season. This Monday’s discussion will focus on how Hurts did in the win over the Steelers. Detroit Lions. Hurts completed 18 passes for 243 yards. He also added 17 rushing attempts totalling 90 yards and one touchdown. Did Hurts display the growth Eagles fans hoped for this summer beyond the box score? Yes, in a word.

Eagles vs. Lions: 13 winners, 5 losers, 4 IDKs – BGN
Arthur Juan Brown, a grown man. It was an historic day for the Eagles’ new No. Elias Sports reports that he was the Eagles new No.1 WR, with 1,014 receiving yards in his debut. The previous record holder was Donte’ Stallworth with 141 in Week 1 of the 2006 season. Brown caught 10 of his 13 targets (! Brown caught 10 of his 13 targets for 155 yards. He didn’t get in the end zone, which he understandably seemed frustrated about. Still, it’s clear this dude is an absolute stud. That much was already apparent in training camp but it’s nice to see the Hurts-to-Brown connection instantly translate to the regular season. Brown won in multiple ways. He beat the Lions’ defense for a deep reception … and then dragged a defender on his back to pick up extra yardage. To rack up YAC, he caught passes over the middle. He ran the out route that Hurts loved throwing to him, and it was a common part of this offense. He’s capable of doing everything. Teams trying to cover him should have a lot of luck. They’re going to need it. Brown is a total receiver and will get it more often than others.

NFC Hierarchy/Obituary: Week 2 edition – PhillyVoice
4) Eagles (1-0). The Eagles lost 35 points to the Lions in Week 1. While they won with a win, many are worried about the defense’s direction. We would all agree that the defense is not in control. 49ers They had a strong defense last year. I mention them because they also had a huge lead over the Lions Week 1 last season, before the Lions made things interesting. San Francisco led 38-10 at one point in the game before the Lions. They scored 23 points unanswered from the third quarter and had the chance to tie the score with one more drive that ended with downs. In Week 1, the Lions had 430 yards of offense and 31 first downs. They had 386 yards on Sunday and 23 first downs against Eagles. Do you feel any better? No? Okay, I tried.

Eagles’ Jalen Hurts likely in for a world of hurt with iffy protection from refs – NJ.com
A quarterback who runs the ball 17 times a game, or anything close to that number, is not going to last the season, even if he slides, even if he knows how to take a hit, even if he’s good at ducking the most vicious tackles. And if he somehow does survive, he isn’t going to win that way in the playoffs, against really good defenses, that focus on containing him. In last January’s Wild Card loss to Tampa, Hurts ran eight times for just 39 yards.

2022 NFL Season: Grading all 32 first-round rookies after Week 1 – PFF
Jordan Davis played only 22 snaps in his debut, which isn’t out of the norm for him dating back to college. While he was disruptive at times he also gave an indication of how tough it is at this stage, especially against Frank Ragnow who is one the best centers in all of basketball. Ragnow regularly got position on Davis and wasn’t overwhelmed by his strength. The Eagles expect Davis to cause more havoc against stronger opponents.

NFL Week 2 Power Rankings 2022: 1-32 poll and rookies who stood out in Week 1 – ESPN
9. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0). DT Jordan Davis, a rookie who stood out. The No. 13 overall pick out of Georgia played 22 defensive snaps (32%) against the Lions and made the most of his opportunities — recording a pair of tackles, including a stuff. Although the Eagles were beaten on the ground by 181 yards (6.5 average), they did not seem as vulnerable when Davis was on field controlling blockers or reshaping line of scrimmage. His playing time was more important going forward, beginning Monday night against Minnesota.

The Dallas Cowboys are the only team in the NFL who did not score a touchdown in Week 1 – Blogging The Boys
Monday Night Football was the last game before halftime. Seattle Seahawks Denver Broncos Each scored touchdowns. This is notable. Because MNF is the final game of a week, the Seahawks & Broncos are the two last teams to play in Week 1 Both teams scored touchdowns which makes it 31 different NFL players to have scored touchdowns in the first week. This means that one team did not score touchdowns this week. The Dallas Cowboys are that one team.

‘Things I think’ as the 1-0 Giants head toward their home opener – Big Blue View
This is evident from the Pro Football Focus grades. But whatever offensive issues the Giants had on Sunday it was due to the inside trio Mark Glowinski/Joshua Ezeudu, Jon Feliciano, and Ben Bredeson. There was good work at times, too, but it’s apparent that the interior offensive line play could be problematic.

Washington Roster Moves: Phidarian Mathis to IR with season-ending knee injury; Donovan Jeter signed – Hogs Haven
Phidarian Mathis suffered a knee injury and was taken off the field. The replays were not good. He was taken off the field and was out of the game for the remainder. Ron Rivera didn’t sound positive about his prospects, and reports were consistently negative for his prospects of returning this season. Mathis was among 2 other players who went to an MRI today to determine the extent of the injury. Ian Rapoport has the details on Mathis’ knee injury and says it’s a torn meniscus that will require season-ending surgery. He should make a full recovery and be back on the field in next year’s season. That is a tough break for the rookie, and a big blow to Washington’s plans for their defensive line this year.
