We from e a pery. Good afternoon, Eagles Fads. You are listening to another episode of the Santa Boot first podcast. Feel like it's been forever. Really good to be back in the studio. We got a Jam Pack Studio Tonight. It's like an all star show. We're still missing one and he's on his way, but we got everybody in here tonight. Triple be today we're going to say to boode, we got some Burgers, we got some beers. So first let me say thank you to the sponsor tonight show, Freddie Steak Burger's father, cavers, and you in the room with us here in the studio. It's going to spit some sports with this later, but give us a little bit on Freddie Stank for picking US up for us. Yes a big thank you goes out to Steve DEMARCO and all the good people at Freddy's steak Burgers at one thousand three, two women Tim Pike, Weschester, PA.

Of course, we always have the magnificent Mr Diep Martin Olah well and the smooth stylings of a be back in the studio with us. We missed your brother. Thanks for coming in. Good to be back. Thanks. Behind the glass. Hold on, wipe that FRY. Saw Soft your face, tower, I'm coming. He all right, we got tower behind the glass there. What's going on? Tower? You guys forgot about me. Now I never get we would never forget about you, Sin Awhile. That's why you are the producer of the stars. You are the engine that keeps this thing rolling. Can't forget about you. Somewhat wrong. I'll make sure it's in my comments to the big wigs here. Yeah, there, we got lega and fedster will be doining in us at some point, and I'm going to say these burghers are fantastic. So I apologize now you hear silent Paul's as we all take a big Budd of these burgers or dip some fries. But let's get into it. I don't think any of us have been in this room together for a while to talk about the birds offseason. We had some draft talked one night. We've definitely had some moves in the last couple weeks as well, something use picking up a few players here and there. So I think I want to start with the offense and what we've done so far what you think we might need as well. On offense, this week they picked up Matt Jones. It seems like another one of these Holley moves where you trying to get a guy that was productive coming off an injury and you know, similar to Jji. Did you know there were some thoughts on the team when he's got some injuries and, as you going to be good enough to play. They got a two year deal out of them. Doesn't mean he's going to make the team, but he was an interesting player when he played with the skins. See what you can do here with us. You guys have any any thoughts? WHO's that? But a surprise to you? It seems like I've running back room is getting pretty fault yes, it's filling up. I agree. He might be, you know, a guy here to provide some depth. So another body to knock around during a training camp. Who knows? You know how he's always got something going on, something cooking, and you know, if he turns out to be a productive player, all the more for us. You know I I'm ...

...willing to bring in whoever, whatever we need to make the team better. That's the way I look at it. And you know, other other than guys that you know, you want to keep that chemistry going on in the locker room and there has been a couple of incidents lately that, you know, kind of made some headlines, not in the way we want to make headlines, but you know, if those things turn out okay, I'm go with it, but yeah, I'm anything that makes the roster betters, I'm all for it. You got to look at it to it might be too kind of push down Al Pumphreys, right, and a guy that's been disappointing there's, you know, the word is that he's bulked up in the weight room and he's really getting good reps and, you know, trying to improve. So it could motivate a guy like that or could push him out the door. And you know, I'm fine with it either way. Like you said, as long as it's an improvement. That's what they're going for. And you know the depth model. It's kind of what New England's done for years. You get guys on the cheap that are coming off of something. Same thing with Mike Wallace. Could he could fit into the system, fit in well and hopefully have a spot on this team. And there's at this point you can you can bring whoever you want on the team right. You can make your roster as big as you want to, and it's not till you start get to get into the cutdowns. Yep, and I thought the barren sprawls coming back it's going to make it even more interesting when they do need to make these cuts. So sproles. If he's really back to where he was, it's going to be hard to tell him he can't come back on this team. So you got Matt Jones in there now. They drafted that. Well, I didn't draft they got the undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame and Kuld Josh Adams, who he's a different style than, I think, most of the players on this team. He's big, he's not explosive, he's going to run through the tackles type of guy and I don't know that we have that right now. Jid does a little bit of it, but you expect one of the explosiveness of out of a Gi so I think loading up on running backs it's not a bad thing, not, not at all, not at all, and it's a position of strength. You have a Gie. You know, we'll see what's brawls brings back. I don't know that he makes the team. Honestly, the sign them, but he's coming up and they saw yellis say that he's leaving up and ACL he's he's thirty five years old. Dick, you've got to be realistic and I don't do you have anim not thirty five, he still he'll be thirty five this season. Really. Yeah, wow, he thought he was like thirty two, thirty three, thirty four going he'll be thirty five in the season. So yeah, but he's still got a lot of speed. I mean he's not diarn sprowls of ten years ago, but he's still got speed. Well, we'll say. We'll say he looks good in the videos. There was it. There was a video that they put out there from their training room where he did like the you know, the cross fit where I'm going to jump up on sixty seven boxes, but he was on he was on one leg. He jumped off a box and went up off of one leg and covered I didn't count the boxes, but he he looked healthy. Right. Well, lose a step though? That's the question. But the other thing to keep in mind they're over the cap right now, the three hundred Tho over, so there's going to have to be a cap move, a cap move clerk. Yeah, there. Yeah, I have no doubt that's going to happen and I have faith in Hollie that he'll he'll get the job done. You know he he'll make the moves. He'll make the right moves to gift shopped on. I do want to take a quick pause because we got our guy fetched in the room here. He's munched on a FRY right now. Going on. Everybody, my gone, is it on? It's on now. What's up? Everybody, a step up to the Mike. They're Dave. You guys, you guys all look so great. Miss you, guys. I'm glad. I would see you forever. I know it's been a bit. Would see you a long time, that's true. I'm following your exploits though. Congratulations, and grab expect to say we do have some beverages. So Dave's got to work, so he's not partaking. But for you, Congrat some the graduation. Thank you, guys, congratulating. But I can't believe I'm a real citizen of society. Welcome to the real world, welcome to adulting. Yeah, I've really done Mun's in the past week, so I could. I need to start making some more time doing some fun things. Well, you'll quickly learn how to do that. Yeah, in adulthood and Julir last summer, hasn't it hasn't been so bad so far. Have you ever seen the graduate? I feel like I have, but...

...it's not it's not. It's no air bud. Okay, now, it's not here for it's not visualizing, it's not getting up here right and check it out. It's great movie. Graduate Tek with now now we got to get any time about the place. They will early. We're talking about the demographic we're going here. You're pushing US outside of him. I'm sorry, no, it's all right, I'm kidding. But yeah, so my graduation, it was so funny. It was just it was just the weirdest day because I mean, obviously we all went out the night before and I wake up a little distorted and there's this combetory dirient it. Yeah, there's this commencement thing at like nine am. Did you wake up in your own place or you? I will give in my own place. You will have you didn't have an away game. You No non court advantage. Okay. So there's this commencement for like everyone to like just sit there listen to the speaker. Cory Booker, you're supposed to get there at A. I woke up at nine that that wasn't happening. Bill Cosby wasn't available. No, not, he got my friend. You know, it's gonna use my freshman sorrow. He don't know. It's good you brought that up. He was my freshman year commencement speaker. So he was the guy bringing us into temple and then six weeks later he got the he got the axe, and by what happened to me? Oh, you don't remember. That's another show I did pen staters, but it fight ourn't tongue when it comes to these two things. That's so fulfilled. So I go, I get I have to get to the to the to the place by like twelve for the one o'clock ceremony, and I'm looking for my name. I go to the EAT H tape. Excuse me, these burghers are so good. I go to the eat ah table, I can't find my name anywhere. I see it David Feinberg, but that's not my name. I know I'm I know of Jewish whatever, but like, he can't screw that one up. So I go over to the information desk table and this guy who's work in the desk was the guy who gave me the paper to sign off for my tickets, for my graduation tickets, and my name was on the list. So I'm like, why isn't? Why isn't there a name card for me? He's like, Oh, I don't know, Blah, blah, blah, maybe the system screwed up whatever. So he has me fill out a sheet. I make my own car to get to the guide to like pronounce my name. I sit all the way in the back with the Z last names and like names you can't pronounce. So I'm in the literal last row when like I should have been like the third or fourth row, and I'm so I'm hungry. I barely ate breakfast. I'm sitting there for two and a half hours. This one kid passes me a blue ribbon pounder and I'm just like, I'm drinking it subtly because my parents are watching and my stomach's all. Do they don't know what's prying on by now? Yeah, yeah, they're not. They're not a they're not. They're not blinded by it. But so time goes on. I finally finally gets to my road, the last row. So I go up, I give the guy my card and he goes David Feintster and I was like, are you kidding me? After all this time my name wasn't in the program. You had me sit all the way in the back row and you pronounced my last name wrong. It's not that hard to pronounce. It was just a it was just a cherry on top. But, like, I ended up realizing that it was my fault later on because you're Adam hide to it. You don't even spell your own name. Hasn't your fault? No, no, it wasn't. It was my fault that my name wasn't in the program because I did my graduation application on January fifteen and I had an education minor. But I didn't do so hot. and was it through the fourteen? Was it due to fourteen? Now was do the twelve? Oh God no, no, it was right in the beginning of the semester. So I get the email back and they told me because I didn't do so hot one of my education minor classes, I had to either retake it to keep the minor and I had to Redo the application. But I tried to Redo the application. I didn't end up retaking the class. By the way, I drop the minors. I don't feel like they doing that and what's called? So I try to do the application again for like three days in a row. It doesn't let me Redo it, so I didn't even like email anybody or anything. I kind of like forgot about it, to be honest, and I did everything else. But up until graduation, I had a Grad check, I finished my classes, I...

...did everything else. I signed up for the tickets and I realized because I didn't Redo the application, my name was another program. But nevertheless I'm still going to get my diploma in the mail. I got an a and volleyball, so we're all good. Nice. Yep, thank you. Thank you. It was very it was really hard, you know, I'm sure stressful. Yeah, I see those bumps and sets, man they get, but hey, how about these birds making these offseason moves? How about these birds? Yeah, we talked a little running back. Let's get the receivers. Mike whilse was brought up. He was also signed Marcus Wheaton, who a gout that was productive when he was with the the steelers before he got injured. ADDS a little speed to the team. I like it. But it's at another part of this team that now you're looking at it going, Oh, who's the odd man out here? But maybe brought up a really good point. You see the different models right over the last obviously over the last decade who have been the repeat champions? It's been the New England patriots and or the Seattle seahawks. But you can see what happens to those teams. The toy takes. You see all the injuries and all the surgeries that they're having the allseason. So you can see that New England was one of the first teams to kind of adjust that and understand that you can't have too much depth. It doesn't matter just because you're set that position. You can always have more. Let's get that Lacrosse player from Penn date in here. will put him in a depth. That Dry Googan in there. Yeah, how about? That's what they do. They find those because you saw what happened. Like a good example was Carolina, know, that great team that went out and then just decimated with injuries the next year Atlanta Falcons. Partly was was probably a mental thing from blowing the super bowl, but they just they couldn't recover from the injuries. It's just a gruel to get all the way to the Super Bowl and then have that quick turnaround. You know they're already in camps right now. So yeah, you see how important it is to have death not just making sure you get, you know, the Allstar player, just making sure you have somebody who can even step in. You know, you saw what happened with the cowboys soon as one or two players went down on that line and then he didn't have aut of a backups, they were done. Dak Prescott became who we kind of thought he was. So we'll see what happens. So not not to go off right off the rails with that what we do here talking about the cowboys. How about Dez Bryant? Still not having a job? Like is though he's a hot he's a head case. No, that's an eye open them. That's an eye opener to what he might be all about. Good, he's still wanted a top what fifteen wide receivers in the league? You got to give them at least that much. And he thought, I have a job. You're exactly right. It doesn't have a job. Yet. What's going on? He Cli? I mean he has lost the step, if he has, but look at his yards perception. I they've gone down consistently. Even his production, like the last three years, it's down. But I agree he's got to have a spot somewhere. Yeah, and he still end up somewhere. I mean I don't think he's going to be out of the League. Maybe he's asking price is too high right now. I think maybe he's I'm sure he's got a couple offers and it's not what he wants. I mean, you heard him say he wants to play in the east. Yeah, that's not going to happen. I mean now a room here are the giants are going to touch him, and I don't think I mean well, who knows what his red skins, but I think part of what contributed to his production gone now was he never developed any kind of chemistry with Dak Prescott. For whatever reason. Right, those two just never saw Odey. I don't know why, but it you watched them play and it just it just never develops, and I think that partly contributed to it. But you know, yeah, he he has to have a job somewhere and I'm sure he'll get signed, but I just can't figure out why he hasn't gotten gotten picked up. You up on somebody. It's kind of weird. They would cut him though, right like you've got that kind of weapon. Some point when it is Jason Garrett Los his job. I mean not listen I wanted to be a dumpster FY that, ever, that is the question. How does he still have a job? I mean that's crazy. I mean he's not easy to we I guess. But Andy was here forever and he had success. Right. Jason Garrett hasn't come close to that. He's been there over ten years now. That's wild. He's had. He's had the excuse of injuries and not had like last year. I we'd have Zeke, we would have been there. It better if we had Zeke. So he gets another year out of it, but I agree with I don't know how a team like that can...

...just cut Brian. He's yeah, you got Zeke, maybe wit and over him. Other than that, now they're stuck with terrence newman, who I think I saw today. He had something of all seat off. You want cold Beasley. He's more worried about his rap careers. It's good, right, right now, right. He's a rapper now. Yes, yeah, what, yes, it's when? Last year? Really? Yeah? Oh, yeah, he's toured with Post Malone this offseason. You're lying. You're definitely lie. That'd be that corner less. I'm just curious. The only thing about station Garrett he's never had to winning seasons back to back, and I if Zeek was in, if Zeek was in for the majority of the season last year would have been a different story. HMM. They would have been better, but I mean I would have been great. But yeah, I don't think it would have been a losing season. I don't know. I still think Jerry Jones is scarred from the Jimmy Johnson, yes, he is, and bill parcelves. Those are the two times where he tried to put talent ahead of his own ego and he just he didn't like the fact that they got credit or that they wanted to be in charge. I mean the fact that he wasn't happy with winning super bowls. He was so jealous that Jimmy Johnson got the credit. You know, that's where we are kind of lucky with Jeffre Leuri, I don't think he really cares. He just wanted the super he just wanted to win. So Jerry got spoiled. Now he wants to make sure he always gets the credit for it, and it's if he's going to keep doing that, they're never going to win again. All right, so with the receivers, you got Al Shoon, you got now Wallace and you have Mac Collins. I think that's probably going to your starting three. You brought in Wilson, that one Elson Aclore to. I'll Nelson. Yeah, I never get about him at my think about Nelson Right. And then you got Wheaton, a guy after my own heart, Marcus Wilson, who came in from Chicago, but I think they got the kids, Shelton Dibson that they drafted last year, where I think he's probably going to be with the one of the guys that are going to be out. Would you take a shot? Does it? Do we even need to think about a guy like does Brian here? Are we good with our receivers? If he says look, no, I would like now. I want to play in the east, I want to play with the team that's going to win and I'll take veteran minimum. All right, well, that now we're already over the CAP, but let's let's take the cap out of it. Yeah, this locker room is proven that it can take on big personalities, controversial personalities. If the locker room was good with it, and Wentz was good with it, more importantly, and Doug felt he could handle it, I would take a shot at him. He is that talented. I think it's hard to you know, he's what six five, I mean big time receiver. That's a dangerous weapon. And Plus You keep him out of somewhere else. I mean he's going to end up in San Francisco or somewhere like that that's going to give us problems. Maybe la maybe Green Bay. So Green Bay would be an interesting spot for him. Hum. I'm cool with it as long as Jason Peters is on the roster, because I really think he's the one behind like nobody was ever going to step out of line. He's scared. What Jake Elliot into making. It was sixty one yards fiel goal. Yeah, I don't worry as long as he's there. I really do think obviously it is once his locker room, but Jason Peters, that's really a peters, I say his world. That Trin. He's the body guy. Anybody was just last he would not tyler that at all. So well, he's another guy, though. You got to wonder if he's going to be here, you know, I mean he's a big cap number and he will be off an injury. He'll be one year at least. We'll see. Now I think he will be. I would like to see how Rosemond Camm into his office and say yeah, right, you exactly what bike. That would be funny. Sorry, when I knew and it's put you already pratis my burger, Freddie stakes powers. I mean these are these are things, are good. These are good at Freddy's, Freddy's frozen custard and stake burgers. Yeah, the custer didn't make it, unfortunreddy's USA ticom ever, wrote our own. Where is this place? There's a couple of this. One is from Westchester on Wilmington Pike. Okay, right, one, it's one broom all. When? When? In where? One in broom,...

...all as well. Okay, I like this. Father Huber each brought them for us so that that might be a new nickname. Father Huberts, father, mother Ubery, my Thin Ka, father carmine, carbines cars. I'm deleting the APP for my phone. Is All right, go on, I'm good. All right, we got talking to Dallas and the whole Dallas Godd thing. We drafted Dallas, and mean they got her headed Dallas and yeah, have you bill. We gotta. Let's change the name. That's probably the other biggest openavid weapon. That was added. That's what add was David acres drunk when he was announced, like Dallas got it. He was rowdy. He was a rude son of a gun, I think, just everything. Being a kicker every think he's oppressed. Just came out. He's just picked on and Brady, he's ready to go. Well, he's that high pitched. Yeah, I didn't Reiz. He acknowledged that. He acknowledge as I high pitched voice say. He said it's something along the lines like he's got to work on that. When he gets excited. He's got a you know, try and change his voice up a little bit. He's an interesting guy, though. He's a black wood, a Hula, yeah, black belt man, taekwon, don't karate. Know he's yeah, I wouldn't mess with him. No, no, he can have a high pitched boys, that's fine. Exactly as it doesn't. Yeah, yeah, I had no problem when he first came out and you're like, yeah, you gonna send the kicker out, but he's an eagle, right, he's a lifelong absolutely, he's a guy that he came out and he did great. Yeah, great, I thought I thought it was funny. He's the points record holder for the team. Isn't he for a friend? Yes, probably him. I I thought it was. It's I don't know if it's up there with Kelsey speech, but it's pretty close what he did. Well, that's what I made it cool. It was assumingly out of character for him and it was something different to I mean, they couldn't rolled out doc and we would all sure eat it up. But I've, I don't want to say I've seen enough doc, but we know what. You know, you're gonna get a be like, oh, what the yeah, this is nice to is little high pitch flame. It was cool. It was cool. Yeah, he yeah, he was definitely cool. Watching that, I really enjoyed it. And you know, he got the perfect amount of time. He wasn't didn't take too too long. Well, he got to say everything he wanted to say and he gave it the Dallas. Yeah, in Dallas. What a GUY NAMED DALLAS? Yeah, it's not his name. No more. Nah, won't be. So the addition to the offense that has been scratching my head a little bit as their last pick of the draft, the rugby player the all see. He's a big guy. MMM, he's a total project. For Jeff Stalin. They think he's going to be a tackle. They're going to try to put them on a line. Yep, but you watch the videos, I'm thinking full back. Tell back something, some type of I think it takes a guy to be an offensive lineman. Takes a lot of training, it takes a lot of experience being in that role. You look at players like Jason or Jason Peters yet, where he was a tight end, but he was lined up on that line right, so I think it was kind of familiar with him to how to move over to that role. But this guy, he's never played American football. He didn't even know how to put a helmet on, right. Yeah, I see that video him in his size eighteen shoes. Oly Shit, that's only sighe eighteen. Yeah, but I'm it's a project. I'm flying with them using their last pick of the draft. Yeah, but it'll be interesting if it works out well. He's a practice squad player, right, he's a per absolutely. The thing that's frustrating, though, with that as you end up getting these project players and they never end up staying here, like we look at Alejandro Villa, went Awaya Yeah, you know, he was chips project and then he ends up and being an all pro lineman and the stealers. So that's what if he develops, you end up having to either promote them and give them a spot and pay them, or someone else is going to scoop them ups. And I feel like we've rugby like you talk about the full back position. You're running a lot like you're not like back against the wall trying to just stop a guy from running at you. Granted, people run at you and rugby, but you are always either trying to run around...

...them throw it to the other guy. You're looking around and when you're an offensive lineman you're kind of stationary to a certain point. To a certain point, I say, you're in the same zone. You Malls. You see how far down Kelsey is down field all the time. So yeah, you know, maybe that's the maybe, don't know, maybe it's it's interesting. That's good point. It's interesting. Well, just wait to see how I play, how it pans out, I guess. But all right, let's move to the defensive side of the wall. Okay, all right, sure thing. Picked up another linebacker this week. The rule. Yeah, it's so agreeable. I'm just, you know, I'm an adult now. You know. I got it's a little thing called compromise. Where do you get married here? Right? You don't know to work compromise yet. I don't know. I don't want to. I don't want to. I'm still only twenty one. I got like a month or so left of being twenty one. I want to enjoy it before it gets boring. There you go. Jesus, you got. You got four years left in life. Have to twenty five. It's old down hill. That's not true. I feel like I'm still on my way up. Ye, you haven't read your peak yet. No, I'm you're never going to pee. I'm climbing. No, all right, the silence in the room is great. There's a silence is definitely there's always that. That one point is silence, like we'll all go off, will start laughing and no one will have a joke ready. So it will just be like that. We'll just move on to the defense. Yeah, exactly, I agree with you. It's I agreeable defense. So they stay. Signed another linebacker this week. That's a spot where it really need some death at depth. Anybody surprised at Michael Kendricks is still on the roster. Do you think there's a chance he's gone by the time the season actually starts? I mean it's performance last year spoke for itself. I remember he wanted to trade right before last season, last January, I remember, and they're like no, we want to keep you. You could definitely produce, and he did that. This year. He had he made a lot of big plays. I don't have the stats up right now. It's like can't rattle them off, but they were definitely a lot better than last year. I remember he what played in thirteen games last year. Some with the number thirteen. I don't know if it was snaps per game then he played, but it obviously increased. Was a big point our playoff run. He's a veteran guy. He definitely don't a better year and he definitely earned the right to stay on the roster. So I'm not surprised that he's there, but it's definitely good to get depth at the linebacker position because in my opinion, that's the most vital position on the defensive side of the ball. Why? I think the big thing for him is they were able to keep Bradham. You know that was huge, right. So you can still keep Kendrick and you got Hicks coming back, so if people forget about him. Yeah, I mean you've got a stocked core and they signed it back on. Cory. No To to linebacks stay. Sorry, Nice and freedom, three hundred and three wow. Yeah, so I don't know that you need to deal them and you know, if you can work the CAP, that you can keep them. I keep them. I mean you've got the talent there. You want to be in a position a depth that linebacker and these are the guys who won you the bowl last year. Yeah, why not keep them? Yea, the drafting of Josh weat. You think the eagles knew about Dark Barnett's injury? It's right. So we just heard this week that Bartnett's getting at ankle surgery. I'm not, I'm sorry, not, Barnett Graham, brank you, sorry, sorry, sorry, what, Brandon Graham? I'll give us a heart attack. Yeah, it really came out tonight. Now Brandon Graham with the ankle surgery. So it's a guy that he was another one of these picks where he probably should have gone second round, maybe third round. You were here, but because of his injury history, he felt a bit in a draft. I like it. Florida state kid apparently had big motor. You hear all the did draft heads say, but at that was when they picked him. I was a little taken aback. That will why are we picking a defensive and I didn't feel like we needed one. But now with Brandon and Graham and it's he's probably not going to be back until after the OTA's. It sounds like that. A decent pick or not, I had no problem with it. Again, I just keep coming back to death at this point, especially in the D N's, especially,...

...get worn down late in the season. So do you Li'man in general doom? You know, everybody was starting to harp on cocks for not, you know, stepping up, but they just they get worn down, and so I have no problem with it. We'll see. Yeah, I think it is a depth thing. Father and you know journey and being hurt. He's going to take some time to come back, you know, and obviously having a restructure his deal the six situation with Michael Bennett. I'm sure they knew about that ahead of time. I got to believe they did their homework and you know, and I think the proof of that is you know, as soon as warley did what he did, they cut him loose. So I think they had to know about Bennett and had to understand a situation. But it's a depth move and you know those have worked out for this team on the line, so smart move. I think. You bring up the journey and injury and how they restructured his contract. I to me that to similar moved what they did for folds. I feel like they're they said look, you are a great soldier for us this year. You helped us win to when the championship. We're going to give you a little something. But with journey in it was it sounds like they're uncertain on his future. What you's injury, the way that that contract was restructured. It sounds like I don't believe mom I should throw a conspiracies, but it also sounds something more than just a workout injury. Right. Yeah, you know, it's almost like a punitive contract where it's a year to year contract now and he's got to go on to undergo a physical and he's lost money on it, where it's like hey, you're lucky, we're going to keep you around for whatever you did. He so, yeah, it's it's a weird situation. It's an area of concern. If there already any concerns on this team, it's the defensive line. Yeah, that's sad. And they they brought in Cedric Thornton and xdtacle this week to take a look at him. And not a we sign, not a but a little older, you know. So, and we're talking about depth and rocations and I think it makes sense to bring Thornton in for a look. Yeah, I think an underlying thing here is the situation with Michael Bennett. They don't want to get caught with their pants down and have him and I'll missing x amount of games Bennett, you know. So they're bringing in these guys for in case he's not there. What's the ladies to keep? What's the latest? Well, Bennett is that. has there been anything as kind of died down? It's died down, but if you look at it, really blew over. Yeah, it did. If you look at it, they said bail at tenzero. Okay, so he so if they knew they had a much more solid case, that'd be a hundred thousand yet dozen dollar bail. So it sounds like it's flimsy. I mean, I don't know, it's I just I still find it weird that there's no video of this in that stadium. Yeah, I know, I'll prep on. Every square inch of the link is covered with video. Right, it has. And you're going to tell me the super bowls not the same way? Yeah, has to be. Yeah, it's going to be some kind of settlement in the move on. That's ultimate. I think it's gonna you know. Well, if I'm I'm the eagles are Michael Bennett, and if there's no case, I'm not going to settle whatever. But you're talking, but you're not doing it. There's no prob right. But you're talking criminal versus civil. Yeah, civil and and it's the criminal charges that are still ending. Y's. That's really true. I think that's their main area concern. The civil stuff. They could care less. These guys settled. Look at our president. Doesn't mean these guys settle out of court all the time. Right. So, there's plenty of payoff money to go around. But right, yeah, little Pale and could go away or it doesn't, or yeah, we're kind of lingers. All right, and on or more come out of a woodwork. All right, there any other moves at this point? That they've made, that you guys are shocked by, interested by. Think something else is going to happen. Obviously the roster. The roster's not set. Obviously, obviously not. But who knows what can happen? We still have so much time before between Journe again and Bennett. Yeah, I think they need to cover themselves with the wife turning in surgery. He's gonna be out for four to sixty months. That he already have it. He had it. Yeah, he's gonna be out for some months. Yeah, right, that's been the most. A lot of surgeries this offseason. Yeah, Star has been. Well, think about it. They played an extra month. It's just going to go that's truell, this this the offseason that we're accustomed to. MMM, steff it was gone right because...

...we played in right everywhere and write. These guys are done. Some of these guys, like the Dooran boss the year prior when he was still with has done. He's done earlier you, like mid December. He was like, you know what, I'm gonna be at my surgery now. Yeah, I think that's a good point that a lot of these guys they saw the ride there on instead of shutting it down. They played through it and push the surgery off. That's what maybe even but certainly push it off. So UN tew was always the first time in a long, long time we weren't counting down to pictures and catchers. We kind of woke up the next day I was like, Oh, yeah, that may baseball. I think too. You're you're absolutely right that on about that. That's right, impute. If we did it, we did it. It's still crazy. MMM. Yes, we did, yes, we did, and we will celebrate it the whole year. All right, I think take a quick break right now. Eat a little worth these burghers ready, Freddie Steakburg refocused yet Freddy's shakes and steak Burgers, any different locations and any choosting shoe string fries. Easy for me to have a pretty fantastic but take a quick break. We're going to come back and we're going to get into an interesting topic. I want to talk about faith on the field. We have one guy in here that I think we can pretty bunch pinpoint where he's at. I'm right there. It's a very personal it's very personal thing faith. So we're not going to put anybody on the line, but I just want to talk about how I think it's really kind of the glue that's keeping his team together and how it looks to the public and how people have treated in the past.

We haven't been together in a while. This is your cohot him, Marcus. We get deep Martin, Father Cavara, Aka father car, Mike, David Fenster and a be all in the room with us today. Add A for how our behind the glass keeping us all on the straight and Arrow. So I want to get into a topic that I it just crabbed me in the offseason just seeing and leading into the Super Bowl and just watching this team and it's faith right. So in his room, right here, we have folks from different faiths. I said going into the break, it's a very personal thing faith, but it seems like this team has really bonded over their faith. And you look around some of...

...the other teams and to me it's they're all focused on one thing and your faith, no matter what what denomination you are, it's about service and being the best you can be, right, and these guys really seemed to hold each other to that standard where you look at like for some reason Beckham just comes into my head. He's a guy that he's in the League, he's in it for himself, he's in it for his stats and he's in it for the shine right, and you compare him to a guy like Carson and nick, where I just want to make the whole a better piece and I'm in it for me. I want to be the best I can be. And it's again, it's something that I think is really bonded this team and I it's not the same faith in that locker room. They're all differently. I mean you look all up to the ownership, Jeff Lewry, how it was in the front office, both Jewish guys. You get down new Doug Christian, are there's some some baptists in there, there's some Catholic Shit in there, but they all have this common bond of faith that's holding them together and to me it's just a really interesting dynamic. You think a te Bow, he seemed to he seemed to poke people and prod people. People are on a fan of him taking me was it? Why? Why? Why was that? was He just not a good player, which just I don't want that in my faith. Like, and I'm just throwing it out there, guys, what I doaring thoughts. I think a part of the tebow thing was people don't necessarily like that being thrown in their face. Like you've said before when we came back, it's a personal thing. Everybody has their relationship with God and it's a it's a personal relationship with God and they don't want to infringe upon others and they don't want it infringed upon them. What what your relationship is, is your thing. What my relationship is is my thing and let's keep it that way. You know, we can talk about it if you want, but don't be trying to force something upon me that I don't care to hear or care to follow through. One and I think that was a part of it. With tebow it faith is really really come out in the open in in sports and it's really become a lot more accepted. I remember when I was a kid, nobody talked about you know, this is going back to the S. nobody talked about religion and faith in the locker room in sports. It was all it was all talk about. Today it's one of the things. And in the corporate setting you don't talk about religious yeah right, you don't talk religion. What are the things that get you in trouble? Politics and religion. One of the biggest industries in the country, NFL, and it's right there. HMM. Right, it's in your face and I'm trying to figure out it's becoming more acceptable or if it's the way the people do it right. I think they both. Think about Kaepernick. I think it's been about is taking nat it's very it's very polarizing. People are either agree with it or they don't agree with it. You're right, but when I'm looking at it from the perspective of well, the team and what it's doing is performance based. I think look at the eagles. They come together as a collective group and their faith and their passion for the game and their passion for each other. It all ties into faith and they did it as a collective group. So if all the guys have chemistry and they're all, you know, down to, you know, praise God or whatever together and they perform the way they do, no one's going to say anything to them because they're doing ultimately what the what the guys like Howe and Jeffrey want. You know, their plan as a team. There's no issues in the locker room and they you know when championships and if you're going to like, for example, Colin Kaepernick, what is he done in...

...the League? He made it to the Super Bowl, lost, made a great run of the NSC championship with Sam Friend and and all that. Besides that he hasn't really done much. So he so what he's doing really is causing a distraction and because he started that movement himself, it causes people to choose size whether they want to be with it or not, and the owners are obviously on the side that they don't want players to do that. But some players want to, you know, speak up for the black was it not? Not? Not all the owners are no, not that not. Jeffrey lorry has been very supportive of of his players doing. Yeah, but Um, you know what I mean. But I don't know what it gonna say. But sorry, and now it's okay, I lost my train of thought. But at the end of the day it's all about what everyone in the locker room wants. MMM. Like, for example, Carson Wentz is a very open kind of guy. He's like, all right, you can, you can join me in faith or whatever, or you can do your own thing. It doesn't matter. It's like to your point, it's if you want to do it or not. You have your faith, you have your faith. Father's his faith, I have mine, Flans as his and Taylor's his and it's all different. But it's a matter of how the guys Mesh together. MMM. Well, you know what that you bring up a good point, talent being the thing that trump should all yeah, and Carson wentz certainly has the talent, but his ministry also what he's done. You know, you look at the money he's raising for. I think it's under privilege kids and building orphanages. You know, I think he's given what six hundred thousand dollars of his earnings thus far. So he's kind of put his money where his mouth is. And what did Kappernick done? I think Kaepernick has kind of been thrust into this and I think his stance was initially, you know, from the heart. No, fer it's for a good reason. Absolutely, don't be he's like. Don't get it wrong, but I think kaepernick became a became a target. Yes, a target, because it's a different thing and I think you know, if you if you bring it back to Tebow, tebow's different. This is where the media plays with us to write ye ESPN through Tebow down our throat and the big thing with Tebow. I think you just became too much. You can't say a bad word about him as a person like I fire them and I admire him for standing for he believes him unders. But he couldn't play and people just kept rooting for him to be this guy that he was. He wasn't that guy, right. I mean had that, he had that game. You know, we threw the touchdown pass in the playoff game and everybody's you know, he threw what was it? A slant over the middle? That when he's an easy dick into that wait eighty yards and it was, oh my God, he's this, he's that and he's not. That's not that's why when he went to the New York jets, he was a punt blocker, you know what I mean, like he's not MVP type of player like Carson Wentz. No, talent speaks for itself. Talent drives faith. I think so. I I'm on board with you. If it's a no, not the disparage Rick Clevado, the deep snapper, but if he's the one in there trying to to and they don't, I don't say push it. I don't I want to. I don't want to make it sound like it's a device. If they but if he's in there the locker room trying to get everybody to come the Bible study with them on Tuesday nights, and if people don't want to do that, people don't want to do it. It seems like these guys to his side. He's doing his own thing. Let's ignore him. But if it's the leaders of the team, and now you got the carsons, and then Nick's bringing in Zach Ertz and bringing in Maragos and bringing in, you know, Tory Smith when he was heeries a very outspoken guy with his faith is that. Does that make it easier for not only the team to accept, but then for the fans? Like there you'll see the players go out there all their prayer before the game, after the game and some of the celebrations they take a need before they do their fun baseball and bowling and all that stuff. There's the winning attitude and the leadership make it easier to accept. If that's the formula that's going to get winning done, then yes. And as football fans you want to see w's, you want to see Super Bowl rings. And what are the Eagles doing to get that? They're praying together, they're doing it's bottom line. So a big point I want to make just about like religion in general. For me it's not Judaism,...

...verse Christianity or what that. It's just about family. It's about it's around. It's about being around the people you love, and the eagles have that feeling in that locker room. So if they all love each other, have the chemistry and they all have one common goal. However, they do, whether if it's going out for beers on Friday night or praying in the locker room on a Tuesday morning. So be it. Yeah, a common room, it's a common ground, it's being around each other and that's what they're doing. We let the father get a word. It going this say. I thought, yeah, I don't know. He's purposely staying out of the conversation. Wants to listen, he's observing that Gould to just play the Father Hannah's right to have. I'm the one wh always has to talk about face. That's a nice break to be able to listen, to be back in the pews, so to speak. Point well taken. Okay, so the big thing, you know, that I see as far as faith in sports, and I was lucky to be able to play sports out my life, even being able to play football throughunt high school and a little bit in college. The Locker Room is where you win and lose championships. It really is, and you can you know right away when you have a lot of room that's together and when that isn't together, and you just you'll know right then whether you're going to win a championship or not. So the one thing faith does, and why I think it really helped the eagles, is the word accountability. It makes you accountable and the one thing you see in all pro sports, but especially in the NFL, you have these guys come in and they want to make sure they stay grounded. So they get a lot of money right up from so one of the first things that they do is, if they have a girlfriend, they get married. If you look at all players, they get married very young. Everybody seems that, oh, they're going to live at, you know, their glory Ds. Know they get married young. Carson Wentz is going to be married soon. Zach Ertz is already married. And with that, though, that doesn't mean the temptation goes away up in fact it gets even tougher. So a lot of times, with faith he keeps them grounded. That's what Reggie White would always say. That's why I was so important to him, because it always kept him away from temptae should away from trouble and it kept him grounded. And if he was grounded with that, that way he wasn't a distraction and the locker room, and you saw there weren't that many distractions in the locker room. None of those guys were perfect, but they were accountable to each other because you know if somebody was stepping out or somebody was doing wrong, you knew because they were brothers in Christ or brothers and faith, they were going to have each other's back and say, you know, that's not the right way to do things. You know. So that's why those Bible Studies that people made mock were so important, because it was all about accountability. That's why I didn't matter which faith they had, as all as they were accountable to God, no matter who they believed, and it really held that locker room together because they are you can see the different face that they have, but that was the one thing Kurt chilling, of all people, would always say was the temptation in sports is unlike anything you can possibly imagine. And a lot of times faith, he said. In his case he was faith and also developing video games. But like he did do to well the videos. Now I didn't, but he didn't. But faith was always a constant and I just they're very, very it was amazing how similar this team was to that ninety ninety one eagles team. That was it. That was a team that was very outspoken religiously, and Reddie actually tried to help drown brown a lot with it, trying to keep him ground and finding his way through your face so I think it's a good thing. And sometimes people don't like, you know, when you talk about they like having to shove in your face. Well, nobody likes having anything shoved in their face at all. Sometimes, you know they want you to be able to practice, but but you practice the way you want to practice. Yeah, I'm here to watch you throw the ball, I'm here to watch you run the ball. Here I can catch the ball. I don't want to see that. I don't need to see that. We know, if you bring up a good point, and I think it's also when you have guys that actually walk the walk when they're when they're talking about this and living that way, other people respect it, whereas you have someone like shilling who will throw out getting to get into politics, but some bigoted comments or whatever comes out of his math. You Go, I don't know that that's a guy of faith that would do that. Or, you know, you think back to the cowboys. You've got Michael Irvin and his hey day when he's blowing lines on a Saturday night and Sunday he's out praise God and it's like, wait a minute, it doesn't really fly, where as if you have guys like you know this team,...

Malcolm Jenkins, you know, live walking the walk, with Wents and falls, walking the walk. Talk in the talk. I think everybody else kind of respects it more to it. Kind of changes the changes the conversation and they've been able to keep politics. I mean, even though you know some of the things that did were political, because you know there's probably trump voters in there and they're, you know, different like but that never came up because they were a family. That was a great point that Dave was making. He was writing, he was hitting the right home. That is what faith primarily is is as Catholics, we are one Catholic family. You know, we're billion people. were all held together by a family. So I think that's what the team was this year. I think it was a family and you could see it and you get you talked about the accountability and some of the things you read. It's these guys. They'll text each other daily say what's going on? Everything cool, you know, and it is. It's family, it's accountabuild the you see how it carries over into the community as well, just all the service they do. Again, it doesn't remember, it doesn't matter what faith you are, but if you're all. You all have that one goal where your family, you're looking out for each other and and you trying to be the best you can be within the group, the family. And I feel like some of these righte receiver Divis and I got them say would be jake, but they aren't in it for their in it for themselves or for the stacks I want it. They're not about to be in a hall of fame. They're not met a principle. Maybe, you know, maybe that's the better way to put out of maybe that's all better way to put that. Yeah, yeah, you hear. You have that point about Obj in it for himself. I think religion is another and your faith is another way to bond. You hear, you hear athletes, specially retired athletes. What do they miss most about playing the bond in the locker room with the guys, to hanging out with the guys. That's what they missed. Yeah, of course they missed the adulation and the adjournaline Roush they would get from playing and all that business, but the thing that they missed the most is the hanging out in the locker room, being boys in the locker room. You know, everybody bonding with each other trip and is afterwards. I mean they yeah, we're Freddy's, but I think the religion, in the faith is another way for players to bond and you know, it's just just another big part of it all. And winning. You know, in sports they say winning covers a lot of stink. And you know, if you have players that are into the religion, into their faith, and then players that are not, if you're winning, you at least have that much in common and that much that you can bond with. So you know, but definitely that the faith, in the religion is another way, another factor of bonding in the locker room and and it it all contributes to a winning formula when it when it turns out that way, and you know, when you're not winning, it may keep it locker room from turning on itself. You know, because you're a part of your part of about accountability. You know, when you're a man of faith you're not one that tends to point fingers or throw people onto the bust that sort of thing, or a man of principle you're not going to do that sort of thing. So even with a losing locker room, it kind of is a it's it can be a glue that holds that team together through those tough times if you have that, that faith in the locker room. And even last year, like when they didn't win, you never saw anybody saying, well, this guy needs to set up, set you know, step up, or anything like that. It was everything was always collective. Nobody was even motioning to anything. was just I you know, we're here and there were guys that you know, Rayne jobson suspension didn't help last year. You know that was basically kick them out of the playoff room, but nobody point if fingers at him. He knew he was accountable and he showed up this year. So I think for that reason, I think that more than just their talent, if they can keep the group together as much as possible, at least the nucles, that's what's going to carry them over the next couple of years. Because,...

...you know, as much as we don't like chip Kelly, as everybody says, he had something with that culture. He really did like the he did have a point with that and Doug Peterson has just been able to, you know, take it to the next level. Yeah, it was just a very interesting to me that we're a fickle tale. We could be very film down and you hear guys as soon as they won the Super Bowl, when they're up there on the podium and like Nick's getting his MVP trophy, they're saying all glory to God, and you could see that turning a lot of people off and and we didn't seem to hear anything about it. So it's a question of do we just say I well, we're winning, it's fun by me. If we're winning, you'd say whatever you want. Go Neil, do whatever you want. But in Philly, I philly is a religious, pretty religious town. So yeah, the archize is Philadelphia, you know, pretty balance. History set ups and downs, but for the most part, I mean this is a Catholic area. It was one of the first places where you could practice your faith public probably, yeah, like Boston exactly. His folks up there. But yeah, it was just really wasn't amazing to see. But and US, episode episode, when the sports illustrated catalog came out documenting the Eagles winning, it talked actually about faith and there was a Mass at resurrection of our Lord, who buy a for other priests that I know. They called it the green mass. Really and it was. It was all. It was a normal mass, but like they did a couple things like that, the blessing of your throats from same blaze so you could cheer louder. They sang the Eagles, they sang the Eagle's wings. Yeah, yeah, everything was for thing, for saying the out of the YEA to the guess melody of the Eagles Fight Song. So, like, I mean, it was something, but you can see people. But the great thing was they had the picture of everybody in their eagles gear at mass but praying. So, I mean the fans bought into it just as much as the players did, least from what I could say. We couldn't get you wearing a mask, that underdog mask, up on an altar. No, it wouldn't been. It would have been no more. Father car mine. God, there was a priest and there's nowhere adult code at Wart. It was a dinning deacon and it it was a deacon. Oh God, we're gonna leave it at that. So I think go over. Well, we're just going to leave it all right. I wanted to transition from from faith in the gambling. We got five minutes now. You got my attention. Yeah, wake up, Taylor. So the Supreme Court legalize gambling, I believe. I don't know where it surprises me that it took this long. Yep, for sports. Now they're kind of hypocrite, right. We don't we don't like it. We don't like it if we catch you doing it and you're getting banned. Blah, blah, blah. Because now they're in the cut now. Yeah, now they're getting a cut. Now. I'm all about it. Now I want more control over it. I want to be able to set mind. I want to be able to tell you what you can bet, like I've heard some of the leagues are really pushing. If we're going to allow the gambling, it's got to be more than just casinos and race tracks. We want the mobilized gambling course, because they want their cuts right a buck. Well, I mean it's are we going to trust the leagues to do this? I mean, I know, I know, we were trusting Vegas and Atlantic City and, you know, the mob for better, but that's pretty dealing with this. Now we're going to trust an NBA that just at what had a gambling scandal the last ten years where they locked up what three or four refs yeah, we're going to trust them to deal with this where they had to get rid of the best player of all time for two years for gambling. You know, that's not going to be Michael Jordan's documentary like now. Let's see, you know, we'll jump into that, but I don't know how to feel about it. I don't know. I don't know that it's going to change how I place my wagers, though. Yeah, you know, I don't want to stay the Pennsylvania taken thirty percent or twenty percent or whatever they're talking about, then go to your bookie. That's the thing is. Is it going to so? And you can tell you can go to a bookie with credit. You don't have to pay up front. Well, you might pay, you might pay with your leg later, but well, yeah, it just makes sure you say it's gonna be legal. Those are all interesting points, though. So, folks that have been gambling for years, you have your guy. You'RE gonna go to your guy. Sure, this opened up gambling to the...

...rookies, to the uneducated. When it calls to that too, absolutely don't you start betting more. And can I beat them credit? Can I give you my visa? You take it on so that's going to a credit card. Yeah, that's what buy. And so when you go with a bookie, yeah, I know, of course there's no place that involved. I know, I know, but I'm saying I've men mowing the bookie. We're for the uneducated people who are there's a game on tonight. Yeah, it would be fun. Maybe, let me get out my phone, I'll put my credit card number and I just I just want to put fifty bucks on the Games that I I think the cabs are going to cover it and I don't know, proble. I'm going to put the then they lose. We know what you know what I and it starts that we're with the bookie. You get in a certain hole. Yeah, you got issues with the Credit Card Company. Note. Go ahead. What else? You want me to increase your credit line? Good, we know. Until the wife sees the credit card report, maybe there's no way. I get the Bloomingdale's build. We're listen. I worried about a couple things, though. You know I worry about people that don't you know. I bet a little bit here and there. Not. I'm never bet over my head. I just won't do it. I might rather buy cryptocurrency over my head and no, that's all enough story. But no, but you worry about people getting tied up with that, because we know people can't control themselves. Yeah, but I also worry about what it does is sports, because I think that, you know, the kids that are younger, like my son, he's an eagles fan, because I'm an eagles fan. But I worry about the gambling thing because fantasy sports has kind of taken away the pulling for your team, started rooting for team players. and Are we going to be rooting for lines? And more and more people doing that? Not More so than they do now. Yeah, yeah, I think you will be. You're definitely going to see something along those lines. And you know, people root for players. They're going to you know, if they can root for players, are going to root for lines, like you said, they're going to root for they're going to root for their money is what they're going to root for. And Yeah, sure, it's going to take away from from that loyalty to the to the hometown team. And I I was when I heard that there were going to be two teams going the Vegas I was like a pull the start, this is now. You crack the damn because it's just going to be. I think it's going to be a free fall when you have yeah, but you know what throw franchises in Vegas. Look. Look with the Vegas Knights have done. They route around that tragedy. There they're, yeah, cast offs and there one game from the Stanley Cup. Yeah, you know, I had the same concern. I was like, well, if we put a team there, are they going to have these twenty two year old twenty five year old guys just go bonkers and just lose it? MMM, that hasn't happened, not yet. They're they're brand new. They've only been there for how many months. It's let's wait for the raiders play. Exactly. Yeah, let's Te raiters gets the black and silver shows up and place goes to pot. But it is. It's like so we have now we have the fanny and I'm a fantishing football player. I love it. Mean you get the lines during the game to pop up on a screen. Yep, you going to start seeing the I bet on whence his first half completion percentage? Yeah, is that can start coming across a screen. We're going to start team more advertising or the announcers going to start talking about it more openly. And you know you're always hear Brett. He would throw a subtle dig in there, something that door cover exactly. He throw it in there. Now, are they're going to be more open about it? Yeah, because all these guys, I think they will be. Yeah, and are they going to be cut? An interesting point. I think they will. But yes, yeah, the league will send out subliminal messages. You know, I wanted I want to Charles Barkley, I want him talking lines. Yeah, but the entertainment purposes alone and what he's losing. But it's safe to say if you want to gamble, even before this happened, you were going to find a way to do it. I'm not yeah, yeah, definitely. I wouldn't be concerned about the general public getting obsessed or ruining their lives. Like, if you really want to do it, it's it's available. You can look for it. Yeah, the proliferation of Casinos, it's just it's exploded and any of the leagues singing they can get a cut. It's like Vegas has been doing this for like how long, and they haven't been...

...getting it. Like just because it's in other states doesn't mean but rewrite the book. Vegas said that there. Their estimatesary is one point five billion dollars annually. That's that outside of legal means. So you cut that up among the states that it's tax dollars, text hours, yeah, or to work. Don't miss spend it anyway. I mean the Philly still looking for their thirty million dollars. So money's not going to go to start all, go to a good cause. It'll just go somewhere. I shouldn't but it's going to bring in bigger shows like Joel McCall and Reba, back and tire and hmmm, I'd drive by that Parks Casino every day and wonder why these schools aren't getting better. New Kid aren't getting books in the public schools. And Anyway, that's that's a whole other topic. wiggles on plug doesn't do it for you. Now, no wiggles anymore. No, thank God for small favors. And he thoughts on gambling from the wash Chester Punch. No, no, that's Today, Satan. No, no, to what you wouldn't you want to do some meth Mary killed. You know, we had a time yet.
