Pretty big game coming up for the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend. It’s not quite as simple as this but the feeling here is that the Birds will find a way to make the playoffs if they win. And if they lose to the New Orleans Saints? Well, it’ll be harder to believe they’re actually going to pull it off.
Postseason ramifications aside, this is also a big game because it’s an opportunity to learn more about Jalen Hurts. Can he stack another good performance after playing well against the Denver Broncos? Can he carry the offense with his arm if the Saints are able to shut down Philly’s running game? Is he proving that he’s the franchise quarterback?
Jimmy Kempski and I discussed all this and more in the latest BGN Radio podcast. Call me biased but I genuinely feel like this was an especially good show this week:
