This Sunday — February 3, 2019 — is going to be a very sad day.

Millions of people around the world are going to be watching a football game that they think actually matters. The reality is: it doesn’t.

After talking to 52 reputable sources, I’ve discovered that Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams doesn’t matter.

In fact, somewhere from 41 to 33 of my sources say that the Philadelphia Eagles’ win over the Patriots in February 2018 was the only Super Bowl that ever mattered.

Now, look. The NFL has too much at stake to actually admit I’m right here. They’re going to pretend like this year’s Super Bowl still matters. But it just doesn’t.

Anyway, John Stolnis and I discussed this and much more in the latest episode of BGN Radio.

Other show topics include:

  • Thoughts on the Eagles keeping Rodney McLeod thanks to a reworked contract
  • What to make of this week’s “free and clearNick Foles report
  • Will Chris Long be back in 2019? Should the Eagles bring him back? (Spoiler: Yes)
  • Terrible news for the Eagles as the Cowboys decided to not extend Jason Garrett’s contract
  • Playing stay or go with the Eagles’ free agents: Should the Eagles keep Brandon Graham, and will they? Golden Tate? Ronald Darby? Darren Sproles? Others?
  • Briefly talking about the Super Bowl that doesn’t matter ... and making picks
  • BLG gets fired up about which Super Bowl team you should be rooting against
