Crew: John Barchard, James Seltzer, Brandon Lee Gowton

John, James, and BLG discuss what they've seen so far this preseason, and if anything has changed their expectations for the season positively or negatively.

One positive everyone agrees on is the play of Carson Wentz. The guys break down Wentz's preseason, highlighting the reasons why they're bullish about the quarterback heading into his second season.

Another player the fellas are excited about is Derek Barnett. And they are still just as excited about him, if not more, after his least flashy performance of the preseason. Tune in to find out why.

Perhaps the biggest roster question heading into Thursday's highly anticipated (lol) tilt with the Jets, is the heated Corey Clement-Donnel Pumphrey debate. John, James, and BLG weigh in on said debate, while also trying to put the whole discussion into the proper context.

Speaking of the running game, the crew also touches on the silliness of critiquing Doug Pederson's preseason play calling, and why he might actually be ok in that department this season.

Lastly, the guys address the increasingly worrying Nick Foles situation, and ponder whether Colin Kaepernick might make sense for the Eagles if Foles is out long term. One thing everyone can agree on, Matt McGloin has to go.
