If there is one word to describe Jalen Hurts after the first 3 weeks of 2022-23 NFL action, it would be – Unstoppable! When a player destroys an opponent in just one half, only so that the coach makes his sit on the side-line to not make the outcome/final score a mockery, it speaks volumes about his form and caliber.
Jalen Hurts has taken down the Buffalo and Kansas City Chiefs, both teams who looked like standing firm against the world a matchday prior. There are no two-ways in stating that Jalen Hurts is undoubtedly looking the front runner for the MVP accolade and Ryan Clark was one of many to acknowledge that on his most recent appearance.
Ryan Clark quoted on the latest episode of Get Up, “If you are having any early MVP conversations that do not include Jalen Hurts, you’re actually not having the correct MVP conversation. That how well this team is playing and that’s how well this Quarterback is playing.”
