Donovan McNabb had nothing but good words for second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts during a sit-down with Rob Maaddi on a recent episode of the AP Pro Football Podcast.
“Everywhere he’s been, he’s won.” – Donovan McNabb on Eagles QB Jalen Hurts.

McNabb, a 6× Pro Bowler with a retired jersey (#5) for the Eagles franchise, says he mentored Hurts and “admires” his game and winning ways. The Syracuse star and Philadelphia sports legend just isn’t sure Hurts has enough talent around him to be successful.
“Everywhere he’s been he’s won… I know the work that he put in this offseason and who he worked with so now he just has to build the chemistry with the coaching staff. You have to be able to build chemistry throughout that offense with the rest of the players. Do they have enough pieces around him to be successful is the question.”
Hurts and new head coach Nick Sirianni is said to be on the same page, as both will look to complement each other in their first year together. Sirianni has expressed to the media he would like Hurts to spread the ball around, and the addition of DeVonta Smith should make the process that much easier.
