Jason Kelce responds to reports that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to permanently ban the ‘Tush Push’
Jason Kelce, the heart and soul of our Philadelphia Eagles, couldn't care less about a…
Last night’s Sunday Night Football matchup that featured two of the Eagles’ biggest rivals, the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, had all the buildup you could imagine.
This game, while only being a week 5 game, would give the NFL world a real look at not only who is the better team in the NFC, but which quarterback is more built for the big games. And boy did we ever get those questions answered.
The San Francisco 49ers humbled Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys, beating them 42-10. A visibly shaken Prescott connected on only 58 percent of his passes, accumulating 153 yards and a touchdown. However, he also threw a season-high three interceptions, resulting in a rating of 51.6. This Dak-led offense was embarrassing again on the big stage, having no successful trips to the red zone.
With that said, the “debate” is officially over. Prescott is nowhere near Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. Last year was enough to prove that to those who know ball, but this year has been the icing on the cake. A year where the Eagles have a brand new offensive coordinator and got off to a slow start, yet they are still 5-0 and a few games ahead of the 3-2 Cowboys.
I’m not even here to kick Cowboys fans while they are down because I’ve been warning them about this for quite some time now. Yet they continue to be the most annoying fanbase in sports. The truth hurts, doesn’t it?
Aside from the statistics and even the wins, for that matter, we judge quarterbacks based on intangibles. Those things are leadership and how they face adversity. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched a Cowboys game, and that loser is just sitting on the bench with that stupid look on his face while his team is getting beat in a big moment yet again. Meanwhile, Hurts goes above and beyond to rally his teammates regardless of circumstances. That is his gift, and it is why he turned into the franchise quarterback after being drafted to be the backup.
Dak Prescott got drafted into a perfect situation. He had the best offensive line in the league, a young Ezekial Elliot who was probably the league’s best running back, Dez Bryant. After that period, Dak was always provided great playmakers, such as Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. So, all of that and they have literally zero post season success to show for it.
Meanwhile, Hurts, after an entire offseason learning the offense and getting some talent around him, led the Eagles to the Super Bowl, where they nearly beat Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. The debate is over; the door is closed and locked shut now.
