Episode #249 crew: Brandon Lee Gowton, John Barchard, James Seltzer

Carson Wentz continues to look awesome in practice

Remember: Wentz can mask the Eagles’ weaknesses if he’s playing really well

What to make of the whole Nelson Agholor vs. Jordan Matthews slot drama

It’s OK to say Agholor has looked better while also keeping expectations in check

How good is this Eagles wide receiving corps now?

The Eagles are going to spread the ball around a lot in the passing game. Right?

Alshon Jeffery’s injury isn’t anything to worry about

Jeffery’s absence allows us to see some more wide receivers get reps (Marcus Johnson, Mack Hollins, Greg Ward, etc.)

What are you excited to see in the Eagles vs. Packers preseason game?

James wants to see Joe Walker, Donnel Pumphrey, Nate Gerry

BLG will be keeping a close eye on the cornerback battle, especially the progress of C.J. Smith

John is excited to see Derek Barnett and the pass rush

We answer your questions!

@Pozzimus_prime asks: If we drop 50 on Washington week 1 are we doing #RTArmageddon?

@ItsVinceQuinn asks: How did the Eagles do yesterday without their Cox, Smallwood, and Johnson?

@rjphilly1142 asks: How has Vinny Curry been, feel like he has become a forgotten player in terms of name being dropped by media?

@TheMightyEROCK asks: Do these WRs (Alshon, Torrey, Jordan) have the potential to be better than Desean, Jeremy, Avant? It just hit me today, I think they can be.

@Joe_Post3 asks: Who will be the most surprising cut this year, now that we know it won't be Torrey Smith?

@jonnyp815 asks: What are each of your favorite kitchen appliances and why?

@MattGrumbrecht asks: Who are the Eagles WRs this year? Are they keeping 5? Which 5 are on the team when the season starts?

@PhilaBCoulter asks: When can I swing by the studio to annoy you guys again?
