Podcast: How Jalen Hurts took the next step
The Athletic's Zach Berman has seen the quarterback improve every step of the way. Here's how Hurts transformed from a player benched in the national title game to starting in the Super Bowl.
We’ve heard opinions all over the place on Jalen Hurts.
Both former quarterbacks make compelling arguments, too.
Where Hall of Famer Kurt Warner sees the best quarterback in the NFL — someone who’s reading the entire field — analyst Chris Simms believes the QB’s success is a direct product of the Eagles' system and all the Pro Bowlers around him.
Hurts is now in the Super Bowl. So, this seemed like the perfect time to place a call to the reporter who has seen every one of his professional snaps: The Athletic’s Zach Berman. We went to college together at Syracuse but, for my money, nobody covers the Eagles better than Berman. He’s dogged and creative — truly one of the best in the business.
