The Philadelphia Eagles are 1-0 after a great Week 1 win! Can they really go 2-0?

Yes. Yes, they can. At least, Jimmy Kempski and I think it’s possible. We talk about why there’s reason to believe in the Birds on the latest BGN Radio podcast episode. Between the lessons learned from beating the Atlanta Falcons to the weaknesses of the San Francisco 49ers, it’s time to be optimistic.
