The Solak Show has officially launched!

Bleeding Green Nation’s podcast feed, BGN Radio, has enjoyed the Kist and Solak Show for the last two seasons — but all good things must come to an end. With long-time BGNer Michael Kist on his way to work for the mothership and SB Nation, I’m now flying solo with my new show: The Solak Show! Original, right?

The Solak Show will be weekly in the offseason and always come in two parts. The first will be strictly Eagles-focused, and I’ll be reacting to and analyzing breaking news on the Eagles’ offseason foibles as they look to rebuild their roster. The second will invite a guest and cover a larger, league-oriented issue that may or may not affect the Eagles. For big-time fans who want to learn more about the game and watch football differently — this segment is for you!

Show notes for the inaugural Solak Show:

Topics covered:

  • What are the Eagles’ “premium positions,” as viewed by their front office?
  • Where do they have the biggest “premium” needs as the roster currently stands?
  • Where is the draft strong at their “premium” needs?
  • What does this mean for their draft strategy at No. 6 overall?

Stampede Blue’s Zach Hicks joins the show!

  • What are expectations for Carson Wentz with the Colts? How far into the playoffs do they need to get for this trade to be a win?
  • Would this trade have happened without Frank Reich in Indianapolis?
  • Will Carson Wentz reconnect with an old quarterbacking coach in Indy to revamp his career?
