Although the Philadelphia Eagles are 2-0 on the young season, some feel there could be a bit of a reason to be concerned.
Quarterback Jalen Hurts and wide receiver A.J. Brown appeared to have an acrimonious moment with each other during the team’s Thursday night win last week over the Minnesota Vikings, but Brown downplayed the moment.
He said it was merely a discussion between him and his quarterback, via NBC Sports Philadelphia.
"I know everybody took that out of context."
So what happened between A.J. Brown and Jalen Hurts on the sideline last Thursday? 🤔

Sometimes, discussions on the sideline can appear to be tense even though they’re merely discussions and there are no hard feelings between the people engaged in that discussion.
There is a fine line between passion and anger, especially in a sport that is as intense and emotional as football.
Hurts had a breakout season last year that resulted in him being a legitimate MVP candidate, and although he hasn’t gotten things into high gear yet this year, he has put up solid numbers so far.
Brown has put up 108 receiving yards in the Eagles’ first two games of 2023, but he only had 29 yards and was targeted only six times on Thursday.
If there is a real concern for Philly, it is the fact that they haven’t looked their best so far this year.
Granted, they haven’t played a high-level opponent yet, but they cannot become complacent and feel their best won’t be needed until the playoffs start.
The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers are coming for them, and they will need to instill championship habits right away if they are to walk away with the Vince Lombardi Trophy this winter.NEXT: Jason Kelce Responds To Peter King's Criticism Of 1 Play
