REVIEW: Jalen Hurts makes his first cheesesteak
It’s no secret that Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is beloved by much of the fanbase, but his latest offseason activity may have ingratiated him with the fans even further. The signal-caller tried his hand at a Philly tradition: preparing a cheesesteak. Not to give the review away, but I think it went pretty damn well.

Jalen Hurts makes his first ever cheesesteak
You can judge for yourself, but Hurts did pretty well, all things considered. Sure he was tentative at first. But that griddle has to be intimidating for a first-timer. Maya and Kayla from foodchasers set him up for success, and it’s safe to say they all are reaping the rewards.
There’s another lesson to learn here, which is a lesson in pandering. This Eagles roster has it DOWN. Nick Castellanos and the Phillies could stand to learn a thing or two from Hurts, Sirianni, & Co.
Sure, it helps that Jalen is already well-liked with a lot of potential rather than a big free-agent signing going through a slump, but I don’t find myself rolling my eyes at this like I did when Casty and Moniak wore that Kobe jersey.
As a result, I will be awarding two scores on this video. The first will be for the cheesesteak construction technique, presentation, and structural integrity. The second will be the Philadelphia Pander Rating (PPR).
Cheesesteak Score: 8.3
It was well done, but he didn’t cut it in half, and some meat fell out. Needs to tighten it up, but he’s got time to develop.
I mean, there’s not much else to say. Hurts is one of the best panderers in the city. Sadly, it can’t top Jason Kelce’s celebrity bartending stint at Ocean Drive in Sea Isle, which is the only 10 outside Chad Johnson’s Twitter run.
