Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts didn’t see the field much during a 23-17 Monday night loss to the Seahawks.
Entering the game, there was some serious hype that Hurts would see more playing time than usual. Naturally, that had football fans everywhere interested. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

All the hype more or less turned out to be for absolutely nothing as Wentz absolutely dominated the snap count.

I don’t understand why the Eagles reportedly gave Hurts so many snaps in practice to then turn around and barely use him against the Seahawks.
The game might have been close, but do fans of the Eagles really feel confident in the offense after last night?
I think the answer to that question is an overwhelming no.

I really do hope Hurts gets a shot. It would be a ton of fun to see him play a substantial amount. If the Eagles don’t intend to do that, then stop giving him first team reps in practice and commit to Wentz.
