Jalen Hurts gets brutally honest about “rat poison” comments


Jalen Hurts is in the spotlight. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback has dealt with people who have made various comments about him, publicly and privately. He’s heard basically everything from the people who praise him to the critics who criticize him.

If Hurts had their way, he would prefer not to hear all of these comments. Even the good ones. In a recent interview, the young Eagles QB spoke about the “rat poison” people say about him that he ignores.

“I’ve seen the good, I’ve seen the bad. I really learned how to hide everything. I don’t really care what is being said out there. It doesn’t matter how I prepare. It makes no difference in terms of the ultimate goal, what it is to us and to me … rat poison to me is something I don’t want to hear. I don’t want to hear the good, I don’t want to hear the bad. I control what I can and keep the most important things … I’m worried about my standards. “

It may come as a surprise to some that Jalen Hurts called all comments about him “rat poison,” including those that praised him. However, it can be a way for the Eagles quarterback to keep themselves on the ground. Some players may hear the praise people give them and use that as a reason to wear off. For Hurts, however, he wants to focus on his goals for the Eagles. That means blocking out all sounds, including compliments.

In the past few weeks, Jalen Hurts and the Eagles have made significant strides, dominating the New Orleans Saints in their final game. While the young QB still has his rookie moments, it’s clear he’s slowly but surely getting into the groove of starting as a quarterback in the NFL.
