With a tough loss to the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday night, the Eagles look to rebound as they play the Los Angeles Rams this week and seek home field advantage throughout the playoffs. This week, John Barchard from the BGN Radio podcast and 94 WIP joined us for an overview of the team’s recent performances and how this Eagles team can rebound as the playoffs are right around the corner.
But first on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. A look at the College Football Playoffs. (4:15)
2. Phillies news and notes: Rob Thomson becomes the bench coach, and possible Freddie Galvis and Cesar Hernandez trade talk. (9:10)
3. Where does Markelle Fultz fit once he returns? (21:50)
4. After winning two in a row, will Flyers Nation continue to call for Dave Hakstol’s firing? (28:40)
Then we get into our Up or Down segment where we briefly analyze Philly sports personalities to determine if their needle is moving up or down. (37:05)
What we’re throwing down on the Table this week is an in-depth conversation with John Barchard from BGN Radio and 94 WIP about where this Eagles team is heading, and how they can rebound after the loss to the Seahawks. Is this Rams game truly a “must win” for this 10-2 team? We also dove into the linebacker corps and whether we should be worried about this unit for the remainder of the season. Do we truly have to worry about Big V. in the future, and should Mack Hollins be getting more time on the field over Torrey Smith? To end this week’s interview, we discussed the expectations for Carson Wentz and how he will need to perform during these last four games of the season, and into the playoffs. All of this and much more on the Table this week!
