Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe weigh in on the checklist and provides their greatest shock.

“The Eagles at four in the NFC?” Sharpe questioned Friday on “Undisputed.”

“They’re sold on Jalen Hurts, that’s the only thing that I can believe,” he mentioned. “They have nice pieces — A.J. Brown, Dallas Goedert, DeVonta Smith, Miles Sanders — but for them to be ranked as high as they are, that says Jalen Hurts is that dude, he’s turned the corner, and is going to be exponentially better this year than what he’s been his first two years. I don’t get it. It’s hard for me to believe they’re the fourth-best team in the NFC.”

Skip Bayless did not have an issue with Philly’s rating, stating that the squad was higher than Dallas within the first place.

“The Eagles are a little better than my Cowboys,” Bayless mentioned. “I’m not saying Jalen is better than Dak [Prescott], but on intangibles, he’s a better leader. That team loves him a little more than the Dallas Cowboys love and trust Dak Prescott. I’m sold on Jalen Hurts, which is why they vaulted all the way up to No. 9. The Cowboys lost much more than they gained. I fear the Eagles, because I do fear Jalen Hurts, and the team around him is way better than the team around Dak.”

Bayless, nonetheless, was not on board with the Buccaneers’ fall.

“The Bucs have fallen three slots from four to seven because of one reason only: the loss of Tom Brady’s center Ryan Jensen,” he guessed. “He is it for Brady. He’s going to get hit and hurried more without Jensen. Pretty good bet that Brady would rather have an injured Jensen than Julio Jones.”
