‘GIVE ME 1 MORE SECOND’: HOW HURTS INSPIRED MAILATA!

By Max Harper

Jalen Hurts leads the Eagles by example.

And in a column today, the Inky’s Marcus Hayes explains how:

Consider how Hurts handled Jordan Mailata in Mailata’s worst moment.

Mailata gave up two sacks Nov. 3 at Houston. After the second one, Hurts found Mailata on the sideline. This is the moment where Tom Brady or Peyton Manning would scream at their left tackle. Not Hurts. Quietly, Hurts encouraged Mailata to trust his technique, then told him, “Give me one more second.”

Mailata has given up one sack in the three games since, and he averaged an outstanding 77.0 pass-blocking grade, according to profootballfocus.com, his best stretch of the season.

“I like Carson,” a former Eagles lineman told me this week, “but I can’t see Carson doing that.”
