This week, the 2017 Eagles Training Camp began with a bang! We’ve had an early look at the quarterbacks, rookies and select veterans who want to take this team to the next level. That’s why we brought John Barchard (@JohnBarchard), the Executive Producer and host of BGN Radio, on the show this week as we get a better handle on the true depth of this playoff hopeful team.
But first, on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Are Odubel Herrera’s mental mistakes concern for the Phillies future? (4:40)
2. J.J. Redick takes less money to come to Philly. (12:20)
3. PSU kicker Joey Julius is fighting his eating disorder. (19:00)
4. Eagles sign Canadian rugby star Adam Zaruba to play tight end. (22:55)
Our Listener Feedback this week focused solely on the Eagles, their upcoming season, Carson Wentz, a possible trading of their running backs, and more. (27:00)
And then what we’re throwing down on the Table is an energetic and in-depth discussion with John Barchard from BGN Radio about how this Eagles team is looking, thus far, in Eagles Training Camp. As Doug Peterson enters his second season as head coach, there are still many questions about his leadership and persona, which we dive into. Every aspect of the offensive side of the ball is looked at as well from Wentz, to the left guard position now that Isaac Seumalo has been named the starter to the receiving corps. We, of course, also take a look at the defensive side of the ball and whether the Eagles may trade for a cornerback. What might the depth of the linebacker corps look like if injuries happen early in the season? All of these topics and much more from John Barchard this week! (38:45)
