Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sounds like he’s trembling in his cowboy boots at the thought of what Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts can do.
The Philadelphia Eagles eviscerated the Minnesota Vikings on national television during Monday Night Football for the entire nation to see.
Viewers could see celebrity superfans such as James Harden and Bradley Cooper in the stands cheering on the Eagles, but there were plenty of viewers at home who looked on in awe — and for some, in horror.
Understandably, it was not a good night to be an NFC East rival, especially for a team that just lost its franchise quarterback.
Outspoken as ever, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ensured that everyone knew exactly what he was thinking as he watched the Eagles fly over the Vikings with a 23-7 victory. Speaking with 105.3 The Fan, Jones admitted how impressed he was with the development of quarterback Jalen Hurts.
“They’re gonna be all we can handle,” Jones said, the owner of a team that boasts 2021 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Micah Parsons.
Eagles, Jalen Hurts have Jerry Jones and the Cowboys quaking in their boots
While it may be fun for Philadelphia fans to imagine how much Hurts scared Jones on Monday night, Jones is being frank and realistic: the Eagles are simply going to be a force to be reckoned with in Week 6.
Currently, the Eagles top the NFC East with a 2-0 record, while the Cowboys sit at the bottom with a 1-1 record. All that is subject to change in the coming weeks, but with Dak Prescott sidelined, it’s all too possible that the gap between these two teams could widen even further.
It’s also too early to tell who exactly is winning this heated divisional rivalry in 2022. Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert kicked off the 2022 season by saying “F the Cowboys” with his whole chest. Then, there’s the fact that former Eagles great Jason Peters just signed with the Cowboys, looking to continue his Hall of Fame career playing for the other side.
Goedert brings the edge, Peters is set on revenge, and Jerry Jones knows that Jalen Hurts will be all his team can handle. After seeing what Hurts accomplished on Monday night, no one — not even the Cowboys — can deny that this NFC East foe is going to be a problem.
