Eagles Mailbag: The Jalen Hurts Punitentiary Experiment

In honor of one of the vital questions on this mailbag I’m pulling out a cliche: you’ve were given questions, we’ve were given solutions.

What’s a pun for Jalen Harm’s title that hasn’t been rinsed to demise but? – Lonis

The usage of “Hurts so just right” is simply lazy now, which is more or less humorous as a result of Jalen Hurts is so just right presently. The expiration date on anything else being cool is when a company or on this case crew social media account begins to make use of one thing. The Eagles have used “Hurts so just right” in conjunction with “Slay such a lot it Hurts” which is advocating doing numerous murdering, “hit ‘em the place it Hurts” which is simply obtrusive, and “the reality Hurts” which is a nasty scenario to be in. So we will retire the ones.

I feel the one identify, word, pronouncing, idiom, expression, and many others. that has “harm” or “hurts” in it that hasn’t and gained’t be executed to demise is “Everyone Hurts.” This one feels secure as a result of A) it doesn’t actually make any sense until say, he throws a TD to all of the beginning lineup, however extra importantly B) the word in an instant brings to thoughts Michael Stipe taking 3 seconds a syllable to sing “everyone hurts” and, for those who’re sufficiently old to keep in mind the song video, sitting in site visitors. No person desires to keep in mind sitting in site visitors.

Now not technically a query however I’m going to mailbag a bigger reaction:

I feel he’s the most efficient assistant trainer in Eagles historical past. I’d rank the highest 5 assistant coaches as follows:

1. Jeff Stoutland, offensive line 2013-present

I give Stoutland the highest spot as a result of he has each height with a Tremendous Bowl ring and longevity as he’s on his 3rd head trainer and offensive line isn’t a training place that has a tendency to have a top degree of task safety when there’s a head training trade. Glance across the league at place coaches who’ve been round for much longer than their head trainer and also you’re almost certainly having a look at a working again or tight finish trainer. Stoutland assists in keeping generating elite offensive line play and growing participant after participant. It appears like the one reason why Jeff Stoutland will forestall being the Eagles offensive line trainer is as a result of Jeff Stoutland comes to a decision he doesn’t wish to be the Eagles offensive line trainer.

2. Jim Johnson, defensive coordinator 1999-2008

If you wish to make the argument that Johnson must have the highest spot, you’ll get little resistance from me. Andy Reid goes to the Corridor of Reputation and is the one true QB guru trainer within the league, and but the most efficient unit of his Eagles groups used to be the protection. Johnson had some nice avid gamers to paintings with, however he additionally were given a rotating forged of supporting avid gamers. All the way through his tenure the Eagles blew via linebackers, the defensive position used to be all the time in flux, and within the 4 immediately NFC Championship Recreation run from 2001-2004 he had 4 other beginning secondaries. Exchange by no means stopped Johnson.

3. Marion Campbell, defensive coordinator 1977-1982

Discover a actually just right Eagles crew and also you’ll discover a actually just right protection. When the Eagles went to the Tremendous Bowl in 1980 Dick Vermeil, Ron Jaworski, Harold Carmichael, and Wilbert 1st viscount montgomery of alamein had been the headliners, however their protection led the league in scoring. From 1977-1981 Marion Campbell had the Eagles best 10 in scoring protection and had been #1 again to again. He had a just right core of avid gamers however rather then Charlie Johnson and Invoice Bergey didn’t have any stars. He simply stored placing out actually just right protection after actually just right protection. As a head trainer he used to be horrible, however as an assistant he used to be best notch.

4. John Harbaugh, particular groups 1998-2006, defensive backs 2007

Andy Reid inherited Harbaugh after which spent 8 years giving him an ever converting forged of avid gamers and asking Harbaugh to provide him a just right particular groups unit out of them. And he did. In the ones 8 seasons he had 8 other avid gamers go back double digit punts or kicks, to mention not anything of the churn of protection unit avid gamers. If groups weren’t afraid to rent particular groups coordinators as coaches he would were employed quicker, as evidenced through being employed twelve months after being a defensive backs trainer.

5. Jon Gruden, offensive coordinator 1995-1997

I may move a couple of techniques for the 5th spot. I give it to Gruden as a result of would possibly have executed extra with lower than somebody in attention right here. He were given the Eagles offense to punch above its weight, in 1996 the Eagles had been ninth in scoring, tenth in DVOA, and 4th in passing yards in spite of being twelfth in makes an attempt, his QBs had been Rodney Peete and Ty Detmer, they threw to Chris Jones and 34 12 months previous Irving Fryar. In 1997 Bobby Hoying threw 11 TDs to six INTs to finish the season. It kind of feels ridiculous now however heading into the 1998 season he used to be noticed as an up and coming attainable beginning QB. However Gruden had left to develop into Raiders head trainer that offseason. Bobby Hoying by no means threw a TD for the remainder of his profession.

Honorable mentions: Jim Schwartz, who gained the Tremendous Bowl; Bud Carson, who had nice defenses but in addition a ton of ability to paintings with and Friend Ryan forward of him at the intensity chart; and Juan Castillo, who did an excellent task as an offensive line trainer and a horrible one as a defensive coordinator. I’ll additionally indicate that the Eagles have hired Sid Gillman, Wade Phillips, Dick LeBeau, Jeff Fisher, Tom Coughlin, Invoice Callahan, Ron Rivera, and Ted Marchibroda at quite a lot of issues of their training careers, who all had a hit assistant or head training careers.

How a lot Eagles equipment is an excessive amount of in a marriage? – Tyler R.

In case you’re now not going so as to kiss your bride or groom you then’re dressed in an excessive amount of. As opposed to that, it’s your wedding ceremony, do what you need, regardless that I’d avoid face paint.

-Stroll down the aisle to the Eagles battle track, sung through everybody in attendance.

-As a substitute of a bridal veil move with a helmet with a complete cage face masks.

-Have your vows on an Andy Reid-sized playsheet, or have the most efficient guy or maid of honor cling up play playing cards like Chip Kelly used.

Severely regardless that, nighttime inexperienced can be a actually just right accessory colour for a marriage.

Which Eagle would you need as your cornhole spouse? – Tyler M.

I’m taking Gardner Minshew for 2 causes. One, you wish to have a constant, comfortable, correct, arcing toss to excel at cornhole. That’s roughly the passer that Minshew is. He’s now not going to check out to rifle it in there.

However extra importantly, when the Jaguars took Minshew within the 2019 draft… he used to be enjoying cornhole.
