Nick Sirianni on Jalen Reagor: I really like the development that’s happened
Eagles second-year receiver Jalen Reagor had one of the most impressive catches of training camp on Tuesday, making a one-handed grab over Patriots corner Michael Jackson during one-on-one drills.

New Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni coached quarterbackin a game for the first time on Thursday night, and Sirianni liked what he saw.
Although Hurts played only 10 snaps and didn’t do anything extraordinary, Sirianni said Hurts was in command of the offense.
“Yeah,,” Sirianni said, via NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com. “He made a really good check and great throw to Dallas [Goedert] for a big play. He saw what defense was coming and checked the play.

He had a couple drops in there, so I was really pleased with him.”

The Eagles head coach also emphasized their “Dawg Mentality” and how that can keep them from a let down in Week 2.Here’s what the head coach had to say:
Hurts didn’t seem quite as pleased with his own performance.

That’s always going to be my mentality. Preseason, regular season, whatever it is, we truly have a standard for how we want to do it. We want to do it at a high level all the time.”
The most important priority for the Eagles in the 2021 season will be seeing if Hurts can prove he’s the franchise quarterback. He has a long way to go, but Sirianni liked the step he took in the preseason opener.
