Episode #251 crew: Brandon Lee Gowton, John Barchard, James Seltzer

John, James, and BLG preview Preseason Game #2, as the Eagles host the Bills Thursday night at the Linc.

The guys say goodbye to Ryan Mathews, and wonders whether the team will utilize any of the cash they saved, by bidding Mathews adieu, this season.

There still seems to be a portion of the fanbase that isn't sold on Ronald Darby yet. The BGN crew does their best to assuage those worries, as they discuss Darby's fit in Schwartz's scheme, what he'll bring to the table, and most importantly, what number jersey he needs to wear.

How much will the starters play against the Bills? Who has the most to gain? Who has the most to prove? The guys answer these questions and more as they look ahead to Thursday night.

The Eagles safety tandem is among the best in the league. Listen in to find out why the Ronal Darby trade should make Jenkins and McLeod even better.

One of the players with the most to prove is Nelson Agholor, especially in the wake of JMatt trade. Can Agholor finally translate his practice success to game action? Listen in to find out. Plus, the guys address the rest of the wide receiver group, including Alshon's potential to play and the battle for roster spots.

The guys discuss the running game, and whether they have any worries about the backs and/or the offensive line. Spoiler alert: The crew has varying levels of worry.

The fellas also address the Ezekiel Elliott situation, including the strong stand the NFL took with their statement about the NFLPA.
