Wall Street Journal: For Jalen Hurts, Super Bowl Loss Provided a Lesson for a Bright Future
During last week’s Super Bowl, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts played like someone who deserved to win, even if that was not what happened in the end, writes Jason Gay for The Wall Street Journal.
In the post-game press conference, the 24-year-old field general made a comment that again reflected what he is all about.
“You either win or you learn; that’s how I feel,” he said.
Super Bowl Sunday was Hurt’s night. In a spectacular performance, he threw for an impressive 304 yards and a touchdown, as well as rushed 70 yards for three touchdowns.
Even a fumble in the first half did not unravel his composure. He remained steady after booting the ball directly into the mitts of a Kansas City Chiefs defender and got the Eagles settled.
If the Eagles had ended up the winners, he was a guaranteed MVP. But even though the team lost, Hurts will learn.
“The beautiful part about it is everyone experiences different pains, everyone experiences different agonies of life,” said Hurts. “You decide if you want to learn from it. You decide if you want that to be a teachable moment. I know I do.”
