What We Talk About

  • The Eagles are definitely a home team
  • Eagles defense can shut down the Steelers & Falcons... but struggle with Washington and Lions. Why does that happen?
  • Doug Pederson called a fantastic game and the gameplan to keep the Falcons offense off the field was obviously the right call
  • Someone put Nelson Agholor on a Greyhound bus and drop him back off at USC.
  • Jordan Matthews’ facemask was unusable after that vicious hit and there was no flag. Dear NFL, please make everything reviewable on a challenge.
  • Very happy with the win, but if this WR core can’t get it going against this Atlanta secondary you probably won’t see it for the rest of the year
  • Which means... Eagles run game has to sustain this offense and they did that on Sunday
  • The combo of Mathews & Smallwood on the ground and Sproles in the air is something we would like to see last for the rest of the year.
  • Ertz is starting to get more targets each week. How much does the chemistry and relationship matter for him and Wentz?
  • Quick timeout: Kenjon Barner, we love you but please do not allow NFL kickers to push you out of bounds.
  • The end of the Cowboys vs Steelers happens in real time and we react to it.... poorly
  • We look ahead to Seattle a little bit.
  • In hindsight: Would you rather the Eagles have played in London vs going to Seattle this weekend?
  • The Vikings keep sliding down the hill. Sammy Superbowl is turning into Sammy 5-11 and that would be amazing for the Eagles heading into the draft this year.
  • The Eagles can win the Wildcard spot and all they have to really do is steal one (maybe two) on the road
  • Reactions to the game from Wendell Smallwood, Zach Ertz and Rodney McLeod
  • We hand out game balls and wet farts
  • Final thoughts & a lot more!

Be sure to come and join us at Chickie & Pete’s in South Philly tomorrow night from 7p-8p! We’ll be broadcasting live, drinking Bud Lights and giving away prizes from the Eagles and 94WIP! Plus you can co-host with us and be apart of the pod! We’ll see you tomorrow night.
