Last week, we released the trash can fire series, which left me not having much time to write other Eagles news. Thankfully (for me, anyway), not much happened. Anyway, let’s take a look at what we missed.
Kelly green jersey will return soon
In the past five years or so, the NFL has a stupid rule that each team can only have one helmet color. Therefore, the Philadelphia Eagles can’t wear Kelly’s green jerseys because they would look strange wearing midnight green helmets.Have Better explain all the nonsense of the 2019 owners meetingIf you are interested in learning more.
On Thursday, Adam Schefter tweeted that alternative helmets may return as early as 2022.
According to league sources, the NFL today approved the replacement of helmets for teams wearing retro uniforms starting in 2022. This opened the door for the defending world champion pirate team wearing old white helmets and orange domineering pirates as early as 2022.

However, according to Rob Tornoe of The Inquirer, the Hawks will stick to the black backup jersey until at least 2022.
According to team sources, the Eagles have submitted their black jersey as a backup uniform in 2022. Therefore, fans can see the Kelly Greenbirds as early as 2023. https://t.co/X4TApfHq5K

What a stupid legend.
Jalen Hurts didn’t even make the top 40 quarterback list
On Wednesday, NBC Sports’ Chris Simms announced his ranking of the top 40 quarterbacks in the NFL. Jalen Hurts didn’t even make the list.
Some people dispute that Sims includes all five first-round quarterbacks in 2021 and a third-round quarterback from the Vikings Karen Mond.
In my opinion, Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mike Jones are obviously better passers than Hertz, and each of them— In addition to Jones-there is also the ability to run. These guys all entered the first half of the first round, and Hutts ranked 53rd in total a year ago, and showed some obvious shortcomings as a passer in his rookie season. So all this makes sense to me.
As for Mond, I don’t have a strong opinion because I didn’t study him as closely as others before the draft, but when I happened to see him on TV by chance, he seemed to be a good prospect. So, whatever.
However, it is obviously ridiculous that people like Keith Kinham, Tyrod Taylor, Teddy Bridgewater, Jermes Winston and Andy Dalton will be in Hutt Si is on this list because they are just mediocre passers, and at their current stage there is almost no running ability professional. Or to be more precise, no one has the same running ability as Hurts. Hurts can be said to be the second best runner in the NFL quarterback after Lamar Jackson.
I mean, Keith Keenham? Haha.
Benjamin Solak of BGN Transcribe Sims’ explanation The injury was excluded from the list.
I am not doing this to create any headlines, but from my point of view, he is not as good as any of the 40 people I am here. Once again, I understand his running-it’s good. Throw, I still have big concerns. I can show you a lot of throws in the movie and say, “Listen, this is unacceptable in the NFL, and some of them are unacceptable.” So I need to see more in this respect.
I think Jalen Hurts is still a project, and a starting quarterback-I’m not saying it is disrespectful-by default, because the situation in Philadelphia is weird. Not necessarily what he likes, grabbing its horns and blowing everyone away… “Oh, my goodness! Wow! He is so good, we must keep him on the court!” “No… I still have too many questions to ask before I can throw him here.
As Solak pointed out on BGN, Sims essentially just gave up Hertz’s value as a runner.
So where should Will it hurt? I think there are two ways to answer this question.
- Who is better than… now?
- Taking into account age, upper limit, etc., but not including cost, who will you replace on this list?
In my opinion, he is now better than Keenum, Taylor, Winston, Dalton, Taysom Hill, Drew Lock, and I can even say that he was better than Tua Tagovailoa last season. So I hope he is in 34th or 35th place.
If we ask who I prefer to own, I would think that Hurts has more potential than Bridgewater, Jared Goff, Marcus Mariota, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jimmy Garoppolo, Cam Newton and Sam Darnold. So, if you look at it this way, it’s the 27th or 28th day.
A few friends retired from the beat of the Eagles
Both Les Bowen and Paul Domowitch bought out from the Inquirer this week.
Rice is a better actual writer than I have ever been, and he is always good at telling the human side of stories. In the past 10 years or so, I have learned a lot about Rice, both on the road and during the daily training of the season. What I miss most is his incredible gesture when someone asks a stupid question, and seeing him nodding in my peripheral vision whenever he likes the question I asked. I won’t miss him taking pictures of interview subjects with me backstage, making strange faces, and eventually appearing on the front page of the Inquirer sports section.
The players seem to like him too. This is a video by Lane Johnson about his worst game as a professional player (against the Chiefs in week 3, his rookie season in 2013), after which Rice asked His situation. If you’ve never seen this before, it’s worth a few minutes.
At the same time, Domo is a respected journalist locally and nationally because he was a representative of the Philadelphia Hall of Fame voting, after Ray Didinger gave up on this not long ago. Domo doesn’t care about trying to get any personal attention in his reports, which is rare among our kind these days.
He knows his things and is very quiet in his work.
Anyway, I will miss both of them, even though Les can’t quit Twitter, and Domo said he will transition to writing books, so I look forward to their post-beat material.
