One might say that Week 1 didn’t go so well for the Philadelphia Eagles. But was it just one bad game? Or a sign of more struggles to come?
Jimmy Kempski and I talk about that and much more in this week’s BGN Radio podcast episode. You can [CLICK HERE TO LISTEN] or stream our conversation below:
EAGLES VS. WFT FALLOUT
- What’s Carson Wentz’s deal, man? Does anyone have the authority to correct him? On a scale of 1-10, what’s your level of concern with the Eagles’ starting quarterback?
- Why didn’t the coaching staff get Wentz on the move more in Week 1? Trying to make sense of Doug Pederson’s nonsensical answer.
- Taking the temperature of the team: there’s a lot of bad juju going off the field. Just not a good vibe.
- You know how we talk about a player being Just A Guy? It sure feels like the post-Super Bowl Eagles are Just A Team.
- The outlook for this Eagles season hasn’t changed ... and that’s both a good and bad thing.
EAGLES VS. RAMS PREVIEW
- Some good news (?!) on the injury front for a change. Getting Miles Sanders and Lane Johnson back is big.
- Why did the Eagles sign two guards? Is Nate Herbig going to get benched?
- The monster that is Aaron Donald and contrasting him with what we’ve been seeing from Fletcher Cox.
- The one word to perfectly describe Jared Goff.
- Will Darius Slay follow one of the Rams’ wide receivers?
- Philadelphia’s edge in the coaching matchup.
NFL PICKS AGAINST THE SPREAD AND EAGLES PREDICTION
- The upside and downside to the NFC East being trash af again.
- Records so far — BLG: 1-2, Jimmy 2-1
- Football Team at Cardinals (-6.5)
- Giants at Bears (-5.5)
- Falcons at Cowboys (-4.5)
- Rams (-1) at Eagles
- Why the Birds could be poised to bounce back and why that still might not mean everything is fine.
