The words Eagles QB Jalen Hurts does not want to hear

The Eagles are only 5-0 for the third time in franchise history and their first since 2004.

Just don’t tell Jalen Hurts.

“Personally, I hate to hear 5-0,” Hurts said on Sunday night. ‘I don’t like to hear it. Because nobody wanted to mention the record when we were 2-5. Nobody wanted to talk about that. So I don’t want to hear it now. I don’t want to hear it now.

“Can we come in here and check the things we can, attack every day and just grow and climb? That is what counts. The process. Nothing else.”

Sure, everyone called the record when the Eagles were 2-5 last year, but they’ve been 12-2 in meaningful regular season games since then, and they remain the NFL’s only undefeated team going into Week 6.

Hurts doesn’t want to hear it. He’s not one to iron 29 percent of the season.

This is who he is. He’s never satisfied, he’s never satisfied, and even if he hit 50-for-50 with 50 touchdown passes, he’d find something he wasn’t doing right.

Hurts knows that as leader, captain and quarterback, his messages are heard by everyone in that locker room. And if his message now is not to even think about that 5-0 record, you better believe it will get through.

“We’re going to enjoy this because winning isn’t easy,” he said after the Eagles defeated the Cards at State Farm Stadium. “Winning is difficult. You deserve it every week. We put a lot of work into this every week and we just want to get out there and play by the standard we set ourselves. That’s just the competitive nature that we have. I have.”

The Eagles are 5-0 but haven’t quite played a full game yet. They have still only scored 29 points after halftime – third in the league – and they have only scored one touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The mark of a good team is one that wins despite not playing a game perfectly. On Sunday, the Eagles didn’t really do anything special—except kick the ball—but they still won a dangerous opponent’s road game with a two-time Pro Bowl quarterback.

That’s how it goes when you’re the only undefeated team in the league. You hit the mark and the Eagles learned it on Sunday.

“I think we’re going to get the best of everyone,” Hurts said. “We are going to play against a lot of good football teams this year and we have to be ready for the challenges ahead. We are a very good football team and we are still growing. We are still learning. We have not played our best yet , so it’s only a ton to learn from.

“A lot of respect for (the cards). We have to learn from it and we will and we are hungry for it.”

The Cowboys are coming to town for a nationally televised game this weekend, and they’ve won four in a row under Cooper Rush and seven of their last nine match-ups with the Eagles, with first place in the NFC East on the list. game.

So they better learn fast because another underperformance probably won’t be good enough.
