With the Eagles off on Sunday, many of you were kicking back in your easy chairs and sofas dressed in comfy pants, a flannel shirt or hoodie and some warm cotton socks, chillin’ out, doing housework and/or watching some football, which makes this the perfect time to check out the latest edition of BGN Memories.
As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Eagles team to reach the Super Bowl, I’m doing a month-by-month retrospective of the 1980 Eagles. This month, I took a look back at an undefeated month of October, which was led by the team’s outstanding defense.
Joining me on this episode of the podcast is former linebacker Jerry Robinson, the team’s first round pick in 1979, a Pro Bowler in 1981 and a starter for Dick Vermeil’s NFC Championship team that beat Dallas in the famed title game at Veterans Stadium. Among the items Robinson touched on...
- Dallas RB Tony Dorsett quitting the middle of the NFC Championship Game!
- Memories of Dick Vermiel and former defensive coordinator Marion Campbell
- Playing in front of Philly fans as an LA native
- His fondest memories from that incredible season
