It took seven games for Nick Sirianni to have to publicly support Jalen Hurts.
The Philadelphia Eagles are off to their worst start since 1999 at 2-5 and there's plenty of blame to spread around. Of course, the rookie coach, the second-year QB and first-year defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon get most of it.
Sirianni has no plans to bench Hurts following another inconsistent performance in a 33-22 loss at Las Vegas. Hurts finished with solid numbers - 18 of 34 for 236 yards and two touchdowns passing and 61 yards rushing - but he was 8 of 16 for 135 yards until the Eagles trailed 33-7.
