But Hurts was good enough to win the SB, a call here or there, or if it wasn’t for one fumble returned for a TD the Eagles could’ve won. Also he’s acting like Hurts can’t get better or that because he wasn’t a high pick he’s locked into being just good not elite.

I wouldn't buy either one of them. Why do you hate the ninja game so much you won't even use its title? Why are you so hung up on twisting things around in such a disingenuous way?
