Highlights: Seahawks vs. Eagles
As a young quarterback with a background rooted in football culture, Hurts’ intentional choice of words was not accidental. His message, though vague, conveyed an underlying call for a deeper level of dedication and synchronization among the players.
“Everyone has their role in it. It starts with me,” he said. “We’ve got to pick ourselves out of this. … We have to make an internal change in how we attack things. How we come to work every day. It starts with the little things, how committed we are to doing what we’re doing. And it all starts with me, the quarterback. It’s a challenge I’m embracing. As challenging as these times are, I still see light at the end of the tunnel. Just a matter of believing.”
“It’s a matter of being on the same page,” Hurts said after the game. “It takes everyone being all in, in all aspects. And it starts with me. There’s multiple opportunities out there. In the end, there’s just not another way you’d have it. The trust that we have in one another, how much we communicate as players. … We just have to be better; I have to be better. Minimize the mistakes, the penalties, the mental errors. Play team football and it starts with me leading that. We’ve lost games because I can be better. That will change everything, and I accept that.”
