Episode #288 crew: John Barchard, James Seltzer

John and James break down an ugly but important Eagles 19-10 win over the Raiders.

The guys celebrate the Eagles clinching home-field advantage, but voice their many concerns after what ultimately amounted to another disappointing clinching win.

At the top of the disappointment list: Nick Foles. After a strong showing against the Giants, Foles fell back to earth with a bad performance against the Raiders. The guys talk about Foles' poor outing and what it portends the playoffs.

Foles wasn't the only one who struggled, as the offense in its entirety didn't live up to expectations. John and James analyze the offense's disappointing evening and what they need to change moving forward.

Which raised an important question in light of the Eagles clinching home-field, should the starters play in Week 17? The fellas argue about this, as John is staunchly in the rest them department, while James needs to see more from this offense heading into the playoffs.

Luckily, despite the offense's problems, the defense returned to form after a rough outing in New York. The guys break down the defense's strong night, and the role they played in bringing home a W.

John and James also discuss Doug Pederson's play calling, what the team needs to do to be ready for the playoffs, and much more.
