The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane said it "remains to be seen" whether Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni will install run-pass options in the team's offense.
Sirianni, the Colts offensive coordinator from 2018-2020, has been reluctant in committing to Jalen Hurts as the team's Week 1 starter or their long-term answer at QB. McLane said when the excitable Sirianni "first started installing the offense with his coaches, there wasn’t much in terms of the quarterback read run game or run-pass option plays." He's emphasized that quarterbacks in his system must abide by certain principles. “All great players in their own right, all like to do things differently, though, right? And our job as coaches is to adapt to the players we have, and run the plays they like, but we also have a system.” Hurts -- who completed 52 percent of his passes in 2020 -- hardly fits the profile of signal callers Sirianni has coached, including Andrew Luck and the statuesque Philip Rivers. Hurts' mobility makes him an enticing fantasy producer, but a stubborn Sirianni could set up the second-year QB to fail in 2021. Joe Flacco, who signed with the Eagles this offseason, would presumably be Hurts' backup. 8:49 am (EST)
