* Byes in Week 4 of the NFL season are an abomination to man and should be wiped clean from the earth.

* The Lane Johnson suspension is coming, and it's likely going to be for the full 10 games.

* The offensive line will likely be negatively affected by losing a Pro Bowl caliber offensive lineman. Who knew?

* Allen Barbre will move into Johnson's spot, and Stephen Wisniewski will take his spot.

*Continuity on the offensive line is so important, but at least Johnson will be back for the playoff push!

*The delay in announcing Johnson's suspension has made this all really weird.

*Is Carson Wentz the most impressive rookie in recent memory? How does he compare to Andrew Luck and Robert Giffin III's rookie seasons.

*Based on the first three games, it's hard to say Wentz isn't the most impressive rookie QB in NFL history.

*Looking around the NFC East, there is more bad news for the Dallas Cowboys.

*Dez Bryant has a fractured knee, with Dr. Matt Dering says is "bad."

*Are the Eagles the favorites to win the division now? It sure seems like they are.

*What is the Eagles record going to be at the end of the season? Undefeated, probably.

*Seriously though, both Matt and John think the Eagles' floor for 2016 is 12-4 right now.

*Matt Derin interviews Kabir Akhtar, Emmy-winning editor for Matt's favorite show "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."

*He's also a crazy Eagles fan, like you and me.

*Matt talks about the first season of the show and the awesome Lisa Bloom.

*Kabir says the Eagles won't go undefeated because after the Eagles clinch homefield early, they'll just rest all the starters the last few weeks.

*Matt and John give their picks for Week 4.
