Episode #255 crew: Brandon Lee Gowton, James Seltzer

Plus special guest host: Brendan Ekstrom from Philly's own Circa Survive (New album "The Amulet" coming out on September 22 plus a tour starting in November)

Jon Dorenbos traded and everyone is in uproar

Our reactions to the Dorenbos trade: The emotional element versus the business side

Is there anyone else you could see the Eagles trading at this point?

BLG gives his take on the Joe Haden trade rumors

What to make of the Nick Foles situation? He’s still not practicing …

Colin Kaepernick to the Eagles — does it make sense?

Biggest takeaways from the preseason

Brendan is scared to death of the running back position

BLG is concerned about the RB position as well but excited for the defensive line

James thinks the Eagles’ passing game is going to be good and feels great about Carson Wentz

Brendan thinks the Eagles are going to be fun again this year

What to watch for in the Eagles vs. Jets game … nothing (just kidding).

Donnel Pumphrey vs. Corey Clement (and don’t forget about Byron Marshall)


@ItsVinceQuinn asks: Is Barchard actually sick?

@bliv94 asks: Why is candy corn always white-orange-yellow?

@Stephen_Lee20 asks: What was the most heartbreaking NFCCG loss, personally? '01, '02, '03 or '08? It's pathetic that we have so many to choose from.

@notmyrealemails asks: Is the strong preseason play of Kendricks comfort in scheme/playing him to strengths or an illusion? I really liked him a few years ago

@Gravity702 asks: Favorite adult beverage?

@kennycal asks: Who is an under the radar player that could have a break out season. Surprise star or contributor this year?

And much more!
