THESE EAGLES ARE AS OVERLOOKED AS THE 2018 SUPE CHAMPS WERE!

By Max Harper

These Eagles wrapped up OTA’s yesterday, so they have six weeks off until training camp starts on July 26.

And they can ponder the fact that Pro Football Focus has rated them one of the most overlooked teams in the NFL:

Current Super Bowl Odds: +2500

Spread Points Above Average: 0.03

Opponent ELO Rankings: 29th

Toughest Schedule Stretch: Weeks 11-13

Jalen Hurts‘ development as an NFL passer is something for him to build on in 2022. From his first to his second NFL season, his PFF passing grade, rushing grade and big-time throw rate all increased on a far larger snap sample size.

Season Passing Grade Rushing Grade Big-Time Throw Rate
2021 69.2 86.9 5.0%
2020 57.5 55.4 4.4%

But many remain skeptical of the 23-year-old’s ability to lead the Eagles’ offense for years to come. He finished just 22nd of 33 qualifying passers in accuracy percentage (based on ball location data) last season and faded down the campaign’s stretch overall, making just four big-time throws across his final five outings.
