How are you good? To have you back in we're en joy no, it's good to be back with my friends, specially my sintios prep alumnus. So it's good to be with such an esteemed member. Yes, I'll allow you in my company today. Okay, should we hit the glory days music? That's my favorite Bruce Song. Then that's unfortunate. He's such a great collection of music and that's your favorite. Absolutely, it's my life. What are you talking about? Up such a boomer. You got a picture in your bedroom view with the handkerchief in the back pocket staring at the flag. He's it. Don't get it twisted. I love Springstein, but God glory days your face. There's so many great but I'm not a Bruce Fan. Okay, I'm really not. I used to say the best part of a Bruce springsteen song is the end. That's the same, but I've since the hall notes on the other hands. Yeah, whole on OAS is good stuff become. Well, take I'm with you a hundred percent, and you're not by yourself. Thank you, Tom. I think the boss is the most overrated artist out there. There you go. You're both idiots. They're beyond believe. There are handful of songs from him that I do enjoy. Glory days as my favorite. Well, there you go, it's in fact, it's one of my favorite of all time. Okay, but then how can you not respect the full body of work if you appreciate one of his commercial songs? You just never did anything for me. Oh my God, I actually saw him at the the link when they opened up. That was the first concert at the link. I went to that concert just because I understand and respect what he is right to rock and roll. Okay, so I give them that, but I'm not a fan of his. But you more of an e street band or Solo Bruce? I mean I like them both. I've so I've seen him solo when he did the Tom Seeker sessions and it was kind of cool. That was more interpretive music. But I'm definitely get the street band. I mean it's yeah, that's Ekes. An impressive band it is, and I played for you know, he plays. He a place for like four hours, so that's I don't know, you know what I get it. It's kind of cultish music music. They're Bruce Fanna or not some of his deeper stuff. Yeah, I love it. It's a local, huge Bruce Fan. It's like Bon Jovi and I don't think hooters and a million records world. Why? I don't know about local, but all right, I'M gonna get my Irish. You got. You get a little more Bruce Love, I think in these areas and you do. Maybe my wife is a big Bruce Fan. Is I help ye all it all. Yes, love, e luck, a long job, Thurston. Yea.

It was very nice, very impressive for the boys to actually avenge the girls field hockey pcl championship on Monday where they played o'hare. The whole week was actually carol versus O'Hara. Sunday was volleyball, Monday was field hockey, then Friday was the first round of the playoffs. So we took two or three from them. So so should be no hair. You Go, Great Kevin Jones Ohara.

So you guys are you guys had a good Halloween party last night. You dressed up as the crew from Gilligan's island. Yes, you were Thurst and how the yard. I was YELP, very cool. I'm surprised that you weren't professor. I would now we had a young kid professor. Yeah, and that's exactly why we were Mr and Mrs Howe's, because we were the older of the crew. That was okay. Did you put on a Thurston Hall accent like a Luta? A little bit. I did. Yes, sometimes, yes, you picked up from your days like the prep ate my bottom jewel and talk like this a few times. Yeah, where's the where's the captain? Had? You don't have it anymore. Not. It's at home. Blue Blazer captain that you should have warred here today. I hanker I had it.

You want asking now, then the end. Trust that dress. Get the ASS. Guys. We went the whole gear. I actually right next to our friends, so they are out there and things right now. Yeah, I want the coals for the ask got. The hat was given to me by a CO worker of Maryanne's who's her husband passed away and he was big in the hats and it was the hat that he used to wear when he goughed and it was like a well, you sold a pictures. Yes, it did burn in my rentness. Yeah, it's slightly less obnoxious than that. Saint shows prep crew had slightly. There's nothing obnoxious at all about this hot thank you. Thank you. All right. So on to the birds. Oh yeah, yeah, that's what I reckon. We're here for we already e was podcast. That's right. So we're here to talk a little bit of football, wrap up last week's game against the bills where, you know, they think we's got back on track. Flatting was out there in Buffalo. So maybe by was you and the famire. Good luck, charms. Maybe now you going down to marlble'll see if tomorrow will solds true. That's true. Buffalo five and one team. When they went in there they were looking like a good team. Good defense. You were questionable about their offense. Josh Allen Still, you know, learning his way around the league. Big Guy, big arm, but they didn't really have any weapons. You look at and older frank or a rookie and Devin singletary. So I expected a good game. I was hoping for a win. We keep out with the wind. They blew them out. They did below the blew them out. You know, it was most I just being there, the most impressive thing was the wind was whipping, the stadium was loud, it was miserable conditions and they did whatever they wanted on offense. That was really impressive. So we somebody was texting as we were watching the game about. It was like the Westbrook game. I was there years ago for that Westbrook game. We were down most of the game that all sudden Westbrook bake breaks off like a sixty yard run in the early fourth quarter, I think it was. And it was the crowd there, because we were we were bullying or Philly fans. It's team just couldn't get anything going. This is mcnabb and the worm balls. Oh, you're talking the twelve nine game against the giants in the W W, in the medal? No, no, I'm talking to Buffalo Game. Okay, okay, yeah, it was. I got you two thousand and nine, I think it was. Yeah, and the fans are looking at his lake. Why are you guys bullying? Like what's half time? We're losing to you scrubs. You know we did. We did the Norwood chant at one point, which the fan didn't really appreciate when they were kicking the field goal. But the fans out there, it's an interesting group of people up there and it wasn't quite bills Mafia at that point. Yeah, we didn't see that much, but they question are billing. They were sharing their snacks with us. Jet Thought was odd. Like the guy next was like you went to some Pretzel Buddy and as Pretzel over. And then when we won, they hate us. When Broth Westbrook took off, they just hated us. Yeah, Stad and just started empty. That was one of the biggest games in mcnabb's career because that was, oh, it was. It was o three. They started Owen. To remember, they lost when they opened the link. They lost first to the bucks and then to the Patriots. So they are own two and that's when the rush them ball thing came out right, right, and so...

...everything was and then so everybody was booing mcnabb, everybody was against him, and that game really got them back on track. And remember the bills had beaten the Patriots in week one, so they every thought we were going to go oh and three and then that was going to be the season. So they won that game. Then the game, miracle in the meadow lands, I think, came a but the next week possibly, or another week following that is a little bit following that. Yeah, yeah, the one where Westbrook and then that's what and that's when they took off. That's when they I think one nine straight. Yeah, that was in October. I was I said, I was at that game. So we were there and strangely enough, I don't know remember Jerry Mornan, some bodies of mind from Penn state were in the row in front of US unplanned, you know, in the meadow lands work, you know, I was like back in Figurino and company. But it was right after it was the year after eleven, I think, and the Yankees were in the world series and we were chanting New York sucks and then they got mad, you know, let's go marlins and good times. I think that giants game got them back to two and three. Yeah, and that's when they started to take off and the only lost one game rest of the year. Yeah, yeah, that was the typical read slow starts and then they started rolling. So so they got their they got the running game back in gear lace week, which is a big thing. Yes, and that's sorry wandered eighteen that and that's one of the things I wanted to ask you. What is the identity this teamail? It seems like they're trying to get the running game to be the whether Doug Lakes it or not, what they only ran becaus it a weather goose, it a wind. Okay, if he could have he would have passed a lot more, I think. But he thinking that they're still vast first team. Yeah, absolutely. I think he came out and said, yeah, with the weather, we had to run the ball. Well, do you think maybe dillard being in there also not, you know, putting him in on these complex passed right protection skis runs, running the pass block? Yes, yea, yeah, that that could be a factor also. And the enemy of any quarterback is it's not snow, it's not, it's wind. Right, quarterbacks hate wind. So Tigers hate cinnamon. If you look at the winds that they had this year. They were run heavy games. MMM, yes, so, whether whether Doug wants that to be their identity or not, that's yeah, they played better as a run team and I looked it's, you know, you get some garbage time at the end of the game and put these rushes. It wasn't. They were. They weren't padding the stat with fifteen rushes at the end of the game because they're up bilot right. That packers game they were run heavy. They won the de Gamez. So I I'm hoping that he sticks with that this week. It's got to be a running team with the receivers we have right now. It's I think they use like a very similar game plan that they used in Green Bay. They run early and run off and is what they tried to establish in Buffalo and they had success with it. So one as will keep using it and they're their formula is they just can't get off to the horrific starts in the first quarter. It thirteen that once they're down they can't make it up in big chunks. But if they can ease their way in the first and get even a little lead, you can see how that they just build and build. By the time the third quarter comes they're just rolling over team and and now Doug and and Carson are now nineteen and two when leading after the first quarter. So that should, as you know, get get the lead early and you're going to win majority of your games. That's the problem. Yeah, I know, leader the lead, don't defer. Yeah, I mean take the ball. If you know, I love I loved, I love deferring. Well, because worked out, because about a check? No, no, no, I mean you think about it. You know, all right, your defense gets US take the field. They're all they're fired up. And then, if you know things aren't going right into halftime. You get the balls, start second half and maybe get things back on track. Yeah, but you just pointed out their nineteen and two after yeah, the first quarters. Yeah, but lead. That's yes, team's built. I'll take the lead. And and how deflating is it to the defense if they can't get off the field in that first drive? You know, give well, given up a few less less week with these the three now right, and they cause the fumble. Rare thing with that. I know they they're usually on the all first good, they're usually giving up. The defense stands starts. They're they're getting healthy this week. Yeah, they so maybe they're getting back on track to hey, I'm a defense first guy. I know you love three nothing games. I know. No, I'm all about defense. Now, you love those three nothing games and I, you know, would love to see the defense come out and make a state and statement early on. But it just hasn't been. You know that the routine lately. Hmmm, I think the team you're playing dictates it to right. Like yeah, sure, if you're going against the Patriots. Yeah, I would want to take the ball first, not to give them the chance. They start off with the lead. Yeah, Tina just goes down the field. Patriots packers chiefs, I don't know that I home my defense on their first. I want to try to get up, although the Patriot defense has been pretty unbelievable.

I just think the way this offense has been so slow this season. I think that's why dog usually defers to but why not get them kick started early? Did work in Dallas. Well, it didn't work against Minnesota. Than the work against Elis. I will say maybe tomorrow I might rethink that. I might, if you know, given the option, I might let the bears take the ball first, because the key if you're an ar true their offense has been yeah, the team you're playing. Can you give the opposing team the ball first? That's my always, no matter what. Yes, you always give them the ball first and trust in your home crowd and your defense feeding off of that. And the offense is usually, when it's home, can actually be more nervous for the home team as well. So yeah, just let the defense go and set the tone, get moment him and then give it to the offense. Yeah, I trust in your team, in your home crowd, and this is a defensive town as much to your Chagrin, DJ, but this is a defense town. It's over. Huh? It's not. After Dawkins left, I think it was dawn. It might be a defensive mentality, but the team itself isn't. It's a defensive this. This this town wolves that we know by the Sweatshirt D he's got a mic goal of t shirt underneathing. Mike picked some Mike. Mike pits socks on. Andy Harmon proble. Yes, I go Andy Harmon's way and x waight back before those guys. So yeah, Bill Bradley and built Burgie and Franklin Mas, they're all those guys. Pretty speaking. With offense, though, like, especially with the Shaun coming back, it was really interesting to see they can get a splash play in the beginning. Yes, that would really be like if tee, if Deshaun is even just lined up, and that makes everybody stay back a little bit. But that's going to set up the wrong that's why him going out was such a huge as it really was. Yeah, the offense hasn't been the same since week one. Now. Well, it causes that. It's your point. It causes them to be aware, closes that safety to shift. I mean you can't. You can't sleep on that. If he's going to go just to run a fly route, you've got to cover it. You can't let him go because you know what's going to happen. Yeah, with him on the field now, alshon isn't get double team. Cooke, tell her and earth should open up for earth and got it. What is it? Because it sponge. Yeah, I don't know. Missing in action? I don't he's still getting the targets. Like if you still our leading receiver, top fifteen in the solar leading receiver this week. I mean, I don't know. Yeah, it's kind of weird. You know, they missed too much to not using them at all. I don't. I don't understand it. It's kind of odd. He's doing a lot of blocking. The Pre to block now, I know, but if you see that he's on it's on the inside more than God it is. Yeah, I think you're setting got it out more past. I was just going to say I think Godard has taken some of his, you know, his game and it's his touches away, because Godard's getting what three, four catches a game at least, and a touch and he's taken taken away some touch because well, if you look on on Redsun setups, I mean earth's gets doubled almost every time. That leaves God her wide open oneonone against the safety or corner. You take that match up all the time and they're eventually they're going to have to stop. And that I think might have. Might have been last week or one of the Games recently. They they had they split art's out wide. So I wonder if they're going to try to do that with earths or got or going forward for your map at yeah, you know who would be nice there? Josh Gordon. Yeah, I don't know if I wanted him though. Did we miss there? But to that point it tells me, if you want to look at the glass half full, that they are very confident in de Sean's injury. Then yes, he didn't go out and get some anything must yeah, that scares me then, that I'm that. I'm thinking we're working with the medical staff that doesn't know what they're doing and an abdomen did issue and they told him he needed surgery. Trying to go to pain management row. All respect to Djs, she doesn't seem like a pay man if you type of guy to me. Did you? Did you watch it? Short parks? I don't know if he's watched when he said he was going to come back and play, he did not seem very happy. Now he didn't. So I don't know if that's concerned. I'm a little concerned by that. But he didn't say like yeah, I'm back, like give you that excitement. He's like yeah, the planets for me to play. You know, we'll see how it goes. You know how they'll work it in the offense. It wasn't very encouraging. I'm sure he's tired of taking that question. Yeah, the same time, yeah, he doesn't. He doesn't get excited to feel with my brother. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, and it's he game. We got to get a with none of that. It was. Yeah, I'm well, he's also a veteran player at this point though, too. There's there's some of that where he's not going to take away from the team. It's not the old djack. He's gonna go out and blend in and then, if he can sneak Alyat get them three catches for eighty five yards or something. That's but he could add a little excitement in his voice. It didn't didn't? We have enough with him beating all the other nonsense this. We do we need any more trash talking from the eagles? Sure, I'm all for it. I love it. Well, if you'd had surgery, how long would he have been out? When would even? If you would have had surgery, week two, when they totally even like two brobably would have been covering to six weeks. Yeah, he'd become a back ready for the by. What was the that's right. I wish he would stay...

...out for the bye and then come back after the by just, you know, take as much time he's because I don't think we need them to beat the bears. Yeah, you do. Well, I don't need to be an NFC, but yeah, you need them. I need to and if he's ready to play, he plays. I mean, what are you gonna do? I get that, but I'm not sure if he's ready to play. Well, that's you think. Thank you, Dr Thurston. How you're well, and I get that opinion, nory, but like you get this guy back. You know you can get quick passes, because that passed Roush with Klil Mac. They're going to get the wins and they're probably going to line up MAC over dillard. Of course, a lot why we can not. Yeah, so that concerns me. So you got to get the ball out quick. Well, it doesn't want to sewards look good and he has it yet. and honestly, say what Peters is? I would imagine peters is done at this point. I mean he's been out for three weeks. There's nothing as far as the injury report. They're not really talking about it, and I mean it's kind of like the writings on the wall. Yeah, you're writing was on the wall couple years ago. Well, they should exactly. They should have cut loose with him and your boy sprawls to movements. That, who's also healthy, he's coming back to brings more to the table than Peters die. No, he does not this point. He wasn't this point, he thought, but he's he's gonna into the last I will take Jason Peters over down sproles any day. That we much just cure auto and trance pain. You to know I had for Halloween I got a monkey mask and I totally intended to bring it in with me this morning because I would make you wear that the rest of the show. For that statement. That was sproles brought one of the teams were past troupcause peters gas man, neither can sprowls. But what? That's true. But when he plays, he's on the you know he's available. Peters, you never know if he's going to be available or not. Give it. And when he starts a game, you don't know if he's coming. Spring him in the matter before rolls. is taking up a roster exactly. And you had running back spots. That's and that's what you ran into last year, where you had one healthy running back. Now you got Boston Scott as your third string running back. He did. Okay, he stinks. No, Yep, it's yeah, he's he's told as Andrew he is. I thought he's all guy, he's spoiled and sprowls. Yeah, you have to touch down. Last week he did. Any of any of US could have had that touch shoo. But look at the track record. You have guys that have played tackle an offensive line into their mid to late S. yeah, running backs are usually done by h thirty, thirtyree you. It was see thirty, freaking nature trying to play. It Was Jersey number. Dude. He's not a freak of nature. He has paid like twenty snaps of the past. Yeah, we're years. Yeah, honestly, that so easy to rattle. He's got kids put through college. It's why still faring crew hat making us all soak it into your brain. It's doing something to your brain net. Did you real crew it at the prep? Yes, I was. They had, they had. I didn't know they had those types of boats back then. HMM, I didn't know if you guys had like that. We're may wanted a first teams that had out. It's high the twigs together to make their way. Yeah, huck fit and time Sawyer style. Amazingly, I was the little guy that's sat in the back and yelled at everybody. You a cock and word. Believe that. He didn't even do any of the hard work. You didn't row. No, so you just sat in the back and yelled yeah, Hey, got do. Well, I got throat in the river. We didn't do the water workouts, obviously, but we had to do want a lamb workouts. So you said there's a lot of land workouts and crow. So you just out there and went go, yeah, now, go, now, there's a counting. They set the pace all right, but still decrease. The King of got it. You were the kicker. You were the kickers. Somebody that's not in you know, sicker eyes with everybody or there. They got something wrong with the technique. You got to pick that out. And you know, did you get like a half a letter for that? Now I got a full letter. I'M gonna pull us out. Okay, I got all three that. I got the St to Jay and the Pe A. Hello, work. Yes, okay, I have my KK letters somewhere. I'm sure you had second your wall, but sick with somebody says they went to penstay brandywine. So they said they can get a Penn station. I did spend a year a pen stay. That bad me. Do we do? I do. I wouldn't have made four years. I've that's actually not the same thing, but I'm still fascinate. So did you have to? So did you wear like the singlet to it? I'm thinking wrestling that he did, but that wasn't for that uniform. Put the uniforms back in the late s early s were a little different than they work. Did you actually hang out with the original dad veil? I didn't know dad veil. All Right, I can you know what he had like the stripe the red of white, straight like the old the old timey guys on the beach, but his curled mustache. We've we've actually gone to a couple races when I was younger, and and is really young. But like the people, they're oh my goodness, so whoety toyty? Just not my Allmon, no, unlike saint. Just, yeah, it's not my element. Hey, half my clip was from South Philly. Thank you for very much. And there were six of us from my parish and south was philly that went. Which one? Which one that closed? Which one? Good Shopper? Not these days, though. Sixtyzero year tuition.

I mean it's cheaper sixtyzero. It's twenty. That's Oh my goodness, that's more than Westchester. Twenty five something like that. Too Small. GMC vehicle to you watch nice, although it's not the most expensive prep school around. That would be rons more than our now that's right by falls geas about Char's probably expensive to Ga malvern. MALVERN's about the ghosts. Episcopal. Sixty. I just want to get that out there. So, wow, my goodness. What's what's that? I am G place. So we saw seventy two thousand and five hundred dollars. I looked it up for one year. Villa Nova is not even that much, is it? Y'll know, was like what the sixty three? So something like that. Since Penn states pushing forty five, Nova has got to be at forty five, is it? That's I heard now in state is still it's not some thing. It's my friend. When my friends told me it's around thirty. It's around twenty. It's yeah, it is. They got to fix that anyway. Yeah, they're looking to fix that. Things elected. I need. I need a fixture, a deep on the back of the boat. Oh, we got one. We got one in our house. What do you sit on? A BAR stool back there? Like, what goes on there? Now? You sit at your seat? I don't know. Yeah, you sit in your seat. You're not allowed to step on the bottom with because the boats only about that thick. Okay, so if you step on the boat, thinking through it. Yeah, I've never been one of those things. They're very narrow. They're really whip the white is all right. We're done talking about this. Can do a whole podcast of the school if you want. When a dragon boat races, what you so big as him and move on I'm fascinated by this. Yes, I should. I tell you about the few times we almost went over the falls, you know, to strings across the schookole. What? You didn't tell him to turn around? Not One job, do you? You gotta wait your turn to get on the dock and you know, a couple times we had to wait and we ended up drifting through the strings and we'd have to turn around to come back. No cheese. All right, fascinating. So six ors of them beads. The defense is back on track and that we're here Fletcher. Fletcher had a second a half l yeah, it was good to see. It took takes him what seven games to get going, inspired by Josh Sweat. He's been hurt. I don't think he's fully were no, I don't think so either, but hurt. He missed all of preseason, all of training camp, but he's should be good. He should have been good by Green Bay Week. HMM, I don't know. That's it. He's getting double and triple team if he pulls a defense are of the offense. Yeah, and yeah, yeah, right. He's got nobody help with him on the line. Journe again, supposed to be back yes. The buy cuse starter press start to practice soon, but yeah, I don't I would expect to see him this week. I that'll be nice. I amn'trigued by the avery trade, though, because it's not a bit. Yeah, I'm really he's sighs. Not I think you can now bump Brandon Graham on certain situations. Ye, and branding Graham as attack has been extremely effective. Yep, when did you get that strip sack against Tom Brady? What was he lined up inside? Okaye, tight, I hold and works out. I think they're going to use him as a pass rusher off the edge, but if you remember when they use Michael Kendricks, says that blitzeeing type Linebacker, I think they could use him like that too. I think it was a good I think it was a good tread up. From what I saw from browns fans, they were really upset that he has going. I'm curious as to why we gave up a fourth round. Therefore, God, it was drafted in the fifth round. Who Cares? They shows you that's what they do. Give Up. Given up a first rounder for Tom Brady ten years ago. Ten years ago. Why are you even thinking about it? Yeah, so what different? I mean because I'm dress crated like a night or whatever. I think they're looking at all the copis the compent sword, compensatory picks they're going to get. Yeah, they're probably have at least two fourth round pick next year. Yeah, OK, so, all right, that's a good I mean they gave up a fourth for Golden Pate last year. Yeah, there act it. They leave up a third and a third, fourteeth. Yeah, but it's see, that's where the team really thought that. There was the week at they really wanted to bolster that. So yeah, yeah, I mean they got to see what he has. I think they had three major areas that they need to address, and it's wide receiver, Defensive Line and defense. And next, you gotta remember this is the second oldest seaman the league. So they need these draft picks, you know, I mean they that's yeah, and there wasn't much out there and you get, yeah, the line of the wall, Lee Jackson was the plan for the year. Yeah, Timmy back and they got hurt. I mean, yeah, there's some things. How about? No, the Patriots totally destroyed the wide receiver trade market. Ye, upon first no, yeah, so there you were like, all right, well, yeah, there. You really want Robbie Anderson for a second? I would not for a second. No, not. His drop percentage is like it's like fifty four percent or something. I read. That's in seeing. Imagine him dropping. You Trade for him and he drops balls. Yeah, defense up back. That maybe that's where you go. Semple maids, temple made, Temple Brown shows you how again, Belichick, he's he sees the weakness and that offense, like the defense is playing well. They've played what two or three, Owen seven teams? So, yeah, they haven't been playing a great competition. So and their defense is good. I taking away from that, but I mean they basically boast of themselves...

...off of bad teams turned it all over. Yep, that's not going to happen in the playoffs and your offense is gonna have to move the ball at some point. Their defense is historically playing well. HMM. That's their season. They're a running team. The Patriots. Yeah, I mean call those little dishes to Edelman, every one too, but I think Brady only has got like eleven touch him maybe yeah, through eight games, nine games. That that's unheard of for Brady. It's so ny Michelle and it's Brandon bolden and James White and, yeah, Brady, and with a guy like Gordon ever supposed to be stretching a field for them, for them, it just give up on him. Yeah, I if I were the because I still want took a shot at him, at Gordon, it wouldn't wor hurt it. Apparently, nobody. They I saw this morning that the first claim was what, the seahawks? Yeah, twenty eight. Yeah, so they were twenty seven of the teams there were the only team yet team right. So nobody else is his injury for real, because he says he's healthy. He says he's healthy, but I mean he was on ire, so I don't know if that meant the Patriots were just done with them and they just throw him on ir just to throw them one eye are but I don't know. I don't think I would have took in a taken the shot of Gordon. I think they've got to make the best of what they have wide receivers. I mean you saw Carson going at aglar in that huddle before the Games and you got to make the plays that are on the field. You bring another guy into the mix, you've got a shoddy wide receiver cord that is lacking confidence and is leaking things to the media. You bring another guy in the mix, I don't really I just don't think it works well for team chemistry either. That's a good point. And they just I mean you could see that they were playing as a team and asking just the way the energy from that defense alone was night and day. Yeah, compared to the Dallas game, where they just came out flat and art like they were fly ready to go. Yeah, yeah, they were all calling each other out with it in the locker room or in the media. It does help that Darby actually looked healthy and that's and mills is back to so and they should be getting the block back long know, back to so after the bye week. Maybe we have a fully healthy team that we expected to see the begin season, other than guys like well leave. And they have the I think it was the I heard it yesterday on the radio. They I think they have the second worst strength of schedule the rest of the way. So they've got an easy schedule the rest of the stead the joys place. We got the Red Skame, sir, least five games. We have three tough games like their last five games should be a cake walk. Yeah, I think you have your home against your divisional opponents. I believe. YEA The alas. I would call Dallas a cake walk. No, see, Dallas is the only one. That's your toughest Auch, your toughest game. You planned on splitting with Dallas Anyway. Yeah, exactly, season right, but you can steal one of two, either the Seattle game or the or the New England game. You're in good shape. You could still win ten games. Maybe you aren't. They win tomorrow. Crazy, they can wait. They're gonna out of those three tough games. Will Save the predictions just a week. The rest of all them, I mean you got you got at Miami. Should be an easy win. You got at Washington. There a mess and the giants are looking looks like they're falling apart two. So back end of the schedules really encouraging and easy wins. Yes, should be in. The one game they have to win all those three tough ones is Dallas, because you're not one of the division. Lose them too tall. Yeah, but that's as a rough row and they have a rough yes, that was they have to go to New England. They got to go to yeah, Detroit. I believe correct. Detroit's of dangerous team. They got Minnesota. So yeah, making predictions going to come back and bite me. I think Dallas Lost Division in that jets game. That loss is going to bite them. I agree with that. That loss and Outa conference loss, you think, just as chart. They lost the walls. I know we lost the Falcons, but half of our team see the sideline before the game. I view it as since Eagles lost that game to Dallas. I think they lost the division in that game. No, now, not. That's I think you have to be the season after a break. Rightly, we didn't even we jumped right into this with springsteed and we forgot to say powered by POPs and thank you to our sponsor. It's your Phillycom. So we'll take a quick commercial break.

And thanks to Jason Foggin. McCain, old toot McCain's Irish, which always all right. Let's get back into it. So we want to look at the second half of the season. We will look at the bears game. I want to look at the team and say, like, is there an MVP on this team? You know we're halfway through the season. So who has played the way you expected them to play? Maybe he's been a disappointment. And let's look at the ABC, at Mnacy, because I look at the AFC, which used to be the more dominant conference, I think that power has shifted over to the other side. There's maybe three teams in the AFC that look strong as long as they stay healthy. But in the NFC I think we have a few teams and you got to figure out who's pretenders WHO's contenders. Let's there's a slew event if NFC teams that can contend. So we started before we went to the break. We're talking about the Eagle second half and the cowboys coming here, and Father Cavarra made a point. Do you think the cowboys already lost the division? Yes, with that lost to the jets. I just think it's going to come back and buy them. I really agree. I know it's AFC and everything, but they're not losing the game. I mean we're not losing against the cowboys at home. That game is we're going to win that game and I just don't I just think what it comes down that last week they're gonna point back to that jets game. Well, Nice Tommy. Is it the Dallas giants game this week? Is it in New Yorker, CIAN dalls, any little inkling that maybe the giant? Surprisingly, it's in. You your ands in. You really know something. wever Monday night. In any chance the giants, because they're getting healthy. Right, Dallas is good enough. Three touchdowns the wideouts all year, all right, and it's just an all enough weapons. Giants Fan raining. I like to say I like this trade they made this week the giant Williams from the jets. Yeah, helped the de line a little bit, but see a Reynoldo, I'll think so. You think that's what him every sun even hopes that for what they gave up to third and five, it becomes a fourth if they extend them. Yeah, so all right, but they'll be competitive. DALL's really good after a bye week. History shows back really good after a bye week. All right, held offensive. That's good for my fantasy team offensive lines, not for our eagles. Back and healthy, fully healthy. All right, I was hoping there was a little now chance of the cowboys getting upset. We're tanking for someone other than to all right. So then we got it's going to come down to the cowboys here in December. I don't know if we're ready to talk about that yet. So let's focus on the game in hand. Tomorrow Chicago. It's a strong defensive team. Their offense, they were one of the darlings of the this the north. In the beginning of season. A lot of people thought, I don't think I's in his room, a lot of us were against the bears and think they were going to be we thought Minnesota or Green Bay. But their offense is just look bad since tribisky's come back healthy. I know they got the running game going last week, but that's our strength. Yep, so I'll my worry for the game tomorrow is Khalil Mac and Allen Robinson. If tribisky can look decent, Allen Robinson could have an afternoon. I guess this. Yeah, I I agree with Khalil Mac he potentially can re havoc tomorrow against Dillard, but I think they missed Howard. You know, I think that's a big hole in it all sense that they're missing and they haven't been able to make it up yet. You know, they were putting a lot of trust in the rookie. I don't think he's really pained out yet. Cohen hasn't done much and, like you said, t biscay was hurt for a while but since he's come back, he he's been bad. Is there any worried that this is, for Naggy, a little bit of a revenge game? He's been had this circled since the double doing and thinking about it and going, MMM, I gotta get I gotta have my game to baby. Could's the only this is only x facted that I sort of I don't think it is a weapons to do much, but you know, they've been thinking about this game, that whole bears team all offseason and they're desperate team. They're going to come into this stoff. What are they? Three and five? Yeah, I think they're kind of a I think they're buried team. I don't think. I don't know. I mean that's what concerns me. Not only that from last season, but I think they...

...come in pissed off and desperate, and desperate teams are scary. I mean, I'm three, four, three and four, fourth in the division. I mean the pack and the Viking. Oh, yeah, they're out. They're out of their division us. Yeah, but I mean they could you know. Well, this could be a little revenge. Yea Bounce. You see Naggie last week and his press conference was getting questioned about he's so cocky. Why didn't you not try to run a play on third down and missed the field goal and then Pino came out into the ball? I would have preferred the ball be lined up on the other Hash, not in the middle of the field. It's like, well, if you knew that with your kicker, then just like you didn't shift it over to the Ash. WHO'said? WHO's in your kick it? WHO's more on the hot seat, Naggie or True Biscay? I think you'd probably go hand in hand at this point, because your Biscay is not what they thought he was. Still want to run out contract. He's got another two years in his rookie deal. Right, yeah, but they traded so far up to get this. They traded a lot to get this guy. Yes, I don't think Naggie's on the on the hot seat. He was, was any coach of a year last year. They yeah, I mean they finished. They still want the lame him after one night. See and and you know they've lost that game on a fluke. Right. So I don't think he's on the hot seat. It's your Biscay. It's it's third year starting. You're in a go with him for wow, he's still learned. Yeah, the price you paid to get them, like you said, I don't think you can. I that's you know. I just don't think it's good. No, he's not. He hasn't shown you anything. You can't. We always go back to the front office. Doesn't want to admit a mistake, you know, and try, try, try. Missing on a franchise quarterback is a terrible mistake. I did, I agree with you a hundred percent, but they don't want to admit the mistake. It makes them look bad. So at her quiet, try every everything that. I think naggy knows to like this is what your risky is, and he doesn't know what to do like he his game planning is different, I think. I mean they there was mvp expectations Archer bisky going into the season. I saw one article that had them as a favorite, which I don't know who wrote that article, but they should. Somebody's got reading that. Yeah, yeah, I know, I know. Yes, now, it wasn't even Barcelolt said Martha Tisky. It was it's Madrisky. It was a it was I want to see the ringer maybe put it out there. I don't know, but it was. It Dead Spin. That's why they all can this. Yea, I saw that. Barcel was loving that. Yeah, they did love the dead spin firings. That don't you go woke, you go broke. It's that's dug he's three know against three know against the bears. So neggie can make it revenge all he wants. And I don't know that was. It was a fluky kick at the end of the game, but they hate kickers prot they still yeah, that's one of those things. The first thing it coach wants to do is cut a kicker pretty new career. I was murdering. I mean look just nick folk just came back after sticking with the EXCEP felthers and for them with the Patriots. So beltie's got no problem shipping kickers out and bringing in anybody for a week. Go Ch I can do anything he wants. He doesn't unless your name Tom Brady. He doesn't have a problem getting rid of anyone. That was interesting this week. Just see Brady came out and said he didn't see. He it's the first time he's kind of said he doesn't know if he's going to play next year or where he's going to play, which and that was the same thing. Belicheck said he could see himself coaching into his s now, where he'd said before. Did they did they extend him? I don't know that they extended them, but for two years or something maybe, but they say. But he did say he could see himself coaching into his s now. Brady said he wanted to play to forty five right and yeah, this week he kind of back that down a little bit. He kind of off said, you know, I don't know, and he also said I know if he you know, his contracts up. Yeah, I can't see him leaving Boston. I can't either. But stranger things, specially if they went in again. That's like jeter leaving the place somewhere else. Yeah, yeah, but stranger things have happened. Yeah, correct, after boilers. Well, he got traded in his it's hot Wal. Yeah, he was still in his prime, absolutely. Were still on his prim gum on time, right, you know. But I was just thinking was at Peter Pocklin pocketing thing too. I mean there's a whole but those things happen. I mean he was the greatest player of all time and he bounced around at the end of his career. Don't if you got that gets that show. We can agree with what. From team to team you get traded for a ransom to the kings and a little players. He get trade, right, but he went from team the team. At the end of the day, did a stint through the Rangers to the coyotes, the Kings simply the coyotes didn't even a plane for the clock. Kylie's last season he coached the coyotes for that's how that's why I thought he had the coaching games playing for no play for he got traded the St Louis. Then he finished out with the Rangers. He want to come and look see someone else in the willers right, did not know. Didn't he want to come with the Kings? NOPE, they made it to the finals with the okay, look at my hockey knowledge. You look at the bigger stain of Brian got a big head something. Yeah, wasn't it was? What's the melt rose, wasn't it? Yes, bars, they lost in the finals. Yeah, Kelly hready fell apart, I think, to the Canadians, but the John Leclaire...

Canadians, I believe. So. John Leclaire played for the Canadians. Yeah, that's where we traded wrecky mark. I remember mark, recky trading mark. Yeah, the Canadians for Eric Desjardan. John, that that dude suck. Dione, these are dad sucked and our team. I did not like the man, the Monkey Mans. Yeah, girls on the scorer, I say Norris and troking finals. I remember going to a game and they's aread and gave up like this overtime goal. And he was forty, three years so upset. Eric Desjardan is in the Flyers Hall of fame, is he? Yes, I'm not incorrectly so. It's not. It's not really so. That's Dave Schultz nonsense. I remember a game where he gave up like this bed turnover an overtime goal and I was like come on, dude, he was a franchise defenseman for ten years. Yeah, it's the best of you get the Monkey Mans. I remember's mark, Dary and Hatcher, that dairy in hatch. That's a hat by the time do that. To do is arres still through. You said it was just like this big bulky guy, just like I don't know how he steps on the slides the like. It's so funny. Look, the first sens been that people could skate right around. They didn't want a cup, obviously, but after they got lynn draw. So when they made that trade to ninety four, like a switch went off. They went on a run for the next four years. They did a legion to dum the crazy. It's all those the greatest trades they've ever made in that franchise. Yeah, well, crazy eight was before the trade, so that the Legion of doom became in effect because of it. Yeah, crazy. It was Lynn Dross, wrecky and bread for deck FEDDEK, door FEDEK. You're thinking a todd for DORC, todd FOREDORC right. Fridge. Yeah, the fridge. So the bears. So back to the bears. Doug he is also three. You know, the week before the by yes, really, he was got a lot in their favor. The lines five, use it up, the five, four and a half. Yep. I think it's going to be the same thing with the emory week. If they come out fast or five, I dreyll over against this defense, hills, it's going to be friended. Yep, fifty two degrees, no way, utiful. Three five team will quit if you get on them fast. It all depends on what offense comes out. If they come out hot, it's eagles. But I mean they come out slow, the turnabowl over, then you're going to have a rough game on your hands. I'm smelling a thirty eight Burger tomorrow. Thirty eight points win, or they're just putting up thirty eight tennis win. I like, I don't know about that. I don't think it's much of a game tomorrow. You get excited to the black on black. Yes, I love the blood. I might I made actually play well with that for some reason that I love the black. I have the black, Deshan Jackson, I might actually have to bring you gotta Rock that tomorrow. Might have to break that point in the season, though. Like, if they can get this, yes, really can start rolling. Yeah, I can turn it around, big win. Yeah, by see getting you get two weeks or prepared the next week's yeah, yeah, they're they're rolling. You get two weeks to prepare for the Patriots. And the Patriots. WHO's the best seeing they played so far? Buffalo, and we just whooped Buffalo. So, I mean you can't take anything out of that, though. Why? Why? Their defense is that was the best Defense Eagles played all year now so far. You can't take anything out of the fact that Buffalo is the best team that they played. That was a while ago. It was before two weeks, three weeks ago. Yeah, and what is buffalo done? They haven't looked very good. There's buffalo come off a by against us? No, they didn't. Okay, I thought they did. They lost somebody. Buffalos five and too. Yeah, but they're week five until I'd rather be a week five and two the strong, would it? Would you rather be it? Would you rather be a week five and two than a or then four and three? Right now, four for four for you. I'm sorry for yeah, yes, I'm much rather be a week five and two. So I would prefer five and two record. But I'm I'm not impressed by two bills. I'm not either. I yeah, I don't. But and I'm not pressed by the Patriots. It whatever they are, because they when it did. The one of the hospital environment haven't played. Anybody want to see the play? Somebody there, a you know? Would I know they're good. There to patriots there. His storic good. There's defense plate. Their defense is like historically the best ever so far because they played the dolphins. You don't impress, you jacks. You should have. I mean we went to buffalo last week, went to Niagara Falls. You're probably one of those guys going now. I am just I am absolutely impressed by nine or falls. I've been there several Sheen added petty pack. Yahdke, you're killing our boss scenario earlier. Right now. Our credibility for that is gone right now. Well, I didn't know we had such a presence up there, our big and Boston. Okay, three listeners all said I have an old high school roommate that lives up there. He checks in one high school roommate school room. I mean high school, high school class. Anybody went to a boarding. One held the prep. When you went in it wasn't a boarding school, but yeah, he's out there. He told tell you some good. You didn't even have any. That would have done you some day. Yeah, you don't even have any problems. I did not have any. Pole had enough last night.

Anybody else would your predictions? I think it seems like with that at that point in the show, fin say three thousand hundred and ten dg when he got back there in the come. Well, I don't think it's that big of a win. I think it's close. I think the bears come in a little pissed off, with revenge on their minds. I think it's more like twenty three, sixteen seventeen eagles. I think so. I think the offense is both sputter. Anybody want to points numbers, the averages? Does that help? Does it matter? Nah, the bears. The bears are giving up seventeen and a half per game, scoring eighteen. Eagles are giving up about twenty five, scoring about twenty five. I like two seven and ten, twenty and seventeen. So what's with these big wins? I hate that number. Twenty seven. You know why? Tampa Bay? No, well, that too raiders. Super Bowl is that? This was the tween. Yeah, and the bucks. Two biggest losses, right, heartbreaking ones. I should said correct I mean the Super Bowl ad against the Patriots. Police. They sort of yeah game, and our Super Bowl was against the cowboys. I want to go eagles win. I think it's a little tighter. I'm going to go I want to go twenty, four, twenty, but you're going to take mine. I'm going thirteen. What's with these double digit wins? Did you axe is back, baby, look at that lot, the lot what? Five? Yes, five points. Yes, they haven't been home for a while. Ye, right before the bye. They're going to be juiced and right. But that's this offense is so inconsistent. is going to be perfect conditions. That's what concerns me. Yeah, they haven't been consistent in backtoback weeks so far this season. The offense. Yeah, I think the running game has been consistent. When last two weeks? No, it hasn't. They got spanked against Dallas two weeks ago. What running game was there? At least they're attempted their run. They got down early quickly, you know, got down big quickly, and they have to Eagles Eagles d twenty on that money line to that's. That was a shame of that. Downs smoke them reither get it. Look, I hope I'm wrong, I really do, but like they were even they were moving the ball in that drive. That was the shame of it. MM, they're probably going to score on that drive this father's us. Yes, Ye, don't turn the ball over. I think will be listening to Merle the last couple minutes on the fourth quarter in the ride home. That's how colp yeah, not allowed to. I hope I'm rolling in my close prediction. I really do. Yeah, I do. So, I just don't. I just don't trust the team yet. They haven't shown me consistency all season yet. I'M NOT gonna run. You don't that'll teams coming out, but I feel like they're starting to get in to if they can get in the rhythm, it has to start now. I mean just the mood with that team in Buffalo, just watching how the defense came out. They just look like a different team. Swag, baby football is all momentum. Yep, agreed. Cut It on their side. Mvps, Gev Po, well and bead, we'll save a couple of MIS this is from last week, the Maloney MVP. I wouldn't we you could give him alone every let's do a Maloney MVP for the first half of the season. Who Jordan? I'm going Jo yeah, I like Jordan. Howard, Jordan, Jordan. Here's through votes for Jordan. I just love Brandon Brooks. I'm the line guy. That's a good I just love Brandon. But for last week I would give it to the offensive line. Yeah, lane is had a bit of a down here. Yeah, yes, it was still be smarting from that Rigi got you. You make it a heart pick to put the potry and I are on the same page here. I A great Brandon Brooks is playing all pros the best. I just lie. Somebody just told me you show hundred getting agree was that he's been rated the number one guard so far. Rightfully so, and Lean Johnson isn't far behind. The way he did you. Did you guys see that little little NFL films that they did a little spotlight on Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson? Is Really Cool. Know how he's Ben how really inspire he is. Yeah, it's fine. One QB pressure. That's not even a shack. One QB pressure per seventy five snaps. Wow. So there's games that nobodyasically there are games where nobody gets near to shut down. What did we trade for him to Houston picks, where he came from? Yes, I'll give how a credit with that one. Yeah, it's a great move. Great, yeah, great, thick. So that who would be your second half MVP? If you had to make a prediction, I hope it's once. Yeah, if it's whence, then that means we're doing really well. It's hard to take you. I want to say it's going to be hurt, but it's hard to take the receiver and not. I must say, it's because of wentzers. I think he think lesser.

It'd be nice to see him come up from down on there too. But I mean, you pay whence this big contract. Let's go see them earn it a little bit. Isn't the game? Tomorrow? We'll tell you a lot, it really will. I'll tell you a lot about the rest of the season. I'd love to have a albviol Jenkins starting to by the way. Yeah, you know, he's made a couple plays here and there, but he's been not trying to shoulder block tastles it's he's has he found little? There's rumblings that he's not happy with the contracts he bother. Honestly, that's kind of point. I don't I think they were smart. Not. Oh Yeah, now that you see is he's definitely a stepple. Yeah, steps lower. You know he's got a spot on the team, but he's not a you're not going to pay him ten minute and right, and I don't like to say Adams Trade, I think my product'll do the entire backfield looking terrible. I think if they get healthy, and I think I don't know if we talked about it or we talked about it, they've been moving him up into that line pack. Yeah, because they're deficient there. There's no reason he should have been the first guy to try to tackle Zeke on that touchdown run. There should have been somebody at least getting it. Another shoulder in them. Have you seen mclepp Michloud at all? Clouds another one. He's been pretty disappointed to. He's miss a lot of tackles. Yeah, but if you're constantly chasing the fastest guy in the team because quarterbacks can't keep keep up with them, yeah, I wonder what happens with Malcolmn at the end of the season. He's a free agent right, yeah, and Oh he's got what? I think he's got one more that's what he want. He wanted to expand, wanted extension. This show one more year. I thought you he's done. If the show one when you're on the deal, guys, dad would be almost a hill Dawkins ish move if they just let him go. We going into his I think he's thirty two, going on his thirty three year old season. I mean at some point you got to look at it and go hmm, yeah, and he's he's been one of the best safeties in the league since he's been here. He had like that's kind of going under the radar a little bit. I feel like it's not talked about enough. And the guy that everybody wanted, I forget his name, Harry's bird. He ended up in Buffalo. He's is he still playing it up in the league anymore? I don't think he's even playing any ended up getting hurt that year. But this guy, I mean he's been top top of his position for the less five years and I feel like a lot of people don't talk about him enough now it's all all the think he gets some props, all the attention goes to Earl Thomas and he gets well locally, he gets talked about. Yeah, but naturally, I mean now, not now. Yeah, no, because, yeah, the Legion of boom for a listen, he's been a good player, but let's not overstated. You know, there was that idiot that and there's an idiot on twitter a couple weeks ago that I got into it with where he put out, you know, Dawkins versus Jenkins, and it's like, Oh, I sold, I saw that. Yeah, he's not at this. I mean probably Dawkins is a hall of Famer. Malcolm Jenkins is a very good play we and Eagls Hall of fame. He'll yes sotill being Eagle's hall of Famer. Well, I don't they don't even do that anymore. Right. What is it getting the ring with art of the ring, whatever, the yeah, whatever that is. Yeah, who went in this year? No one's state wasn't it Merril? They kind of they're kind of smart. It's not like the flyers nonsense. I mean Christ gritties in the you know, the flyers wall of fame or whatever. They've got at this point. Mike Lieberthal, Mike Leab, yeah, for the wall of fame. One solid or half a solid season got him a all star Peap. I was at a game where he hit a grand slam real and it was it's probably his. That's what that's what your G I was in the Diamond Club. Would a little sea and yeah, while we're on the phillies and he thoughts on Girardi, I'm digging it a lot. Yeah, it's finally good to see some encouraging things from that franchise. He owned that press conference. I watched a little bit of it and he said all the right things. He was answering the questions. He's you know what you wanted to hear from your new manager. He's I'm really excited for him. Well, that. Well, they set that move up. Before they announced that. They brought in the Yankees Director of International. Yeah, and I saw that. I was like, all right, Girardi, he's coming. Yeah, at this point, though, why don't you just blow out these other two idiots? Yeah, there's some other stuff. Here's no note at all because this wasn't there higher and they're trying to swallow it like it was. But they wanted show Walter and why was Clintack the only one? They're at the doubt that did. I did question at to Middleton should have been there. Yeah, I'd a question. Maybe he didn't want to take away to spot. Maybe. Well, he took away the post. You know the postseason when they fired gave the three stages up there there. I mean that was Smith. That was terrible. Maybe he didn't want it to be that a parent that it was his high. I think everybody knows it was his highers. Absolutely is hard, but put the GM out there with his higher. I so mind horns. I mean it's been you know, it should have happened quicker and they should have fired Gabe sooner. Gabe should have been done after that. You know that after that last game. Question why they let that hang for Middleton should have been waiting for him in the locker room after the last game. Said thanks, but you're great guy now whatever. You know, they'd like him personally. Yeah, that's from all accounts. He's a really nice guy. Yeah, the factory his strength coach. What's that bring them back at? Yeah, you know, he's getting interviews for their jobs. W could he's the same frames been interviewed twice. I can I'll bet you he's one of those...

...guys that he'll probably do better. His second manager drank like a frank owne. Exactly. That happens in baseball, but he wasn't the guy for here and they tuned him out. Is and clearly that. You know, they need to scrub the analytics like. I think Girardi brings a balance where he's not so tied analytics and they're not looking at launch angle on everything. You know, he can kind of go with got a little bit, because they've got analytics people walking around down there talking to players like that's got to be off limits. They have these analytics guys that have free roam down there. Yeah, can we reache? Let me show you what you were that. How many years did you play? That's what the bench couch is exactly right. Yeah, guys who have played the game. If you want an a lot of buying influence, the analytics guys should talk to the bench coach or the hitting coach and they should they should walk to the players, not these analytics geeks. The third eye. That's I'm the bench coach, carrol. That's why I do it's like if I see something that know the other couch, pick it up. I mentioned that's like, we didn't see that. That's all. You when you said Kim Mere Reese, let me show you something that. The immediate thought in my mind was George from Seinfeld the episode. Yes, he was showing everybody from the themes stay's, but you know who signed? Garret Coole, and I love them. That would be great. Yeah, you see, this is a weird exity. Yeah, just the well, did you see his exit interview? What happen? He was wearing team bors wors Huh. Yeah, he had that on in the locker room after the world see, he had to be had a big falling out with them. Yeah, I'm not in ployed, so I don't need to do the interview. Right. Yeah, he yeah, he had a big falling out with Asher's good. How do you not throw them in that game? That's a terrible move. them up in the sixth. I don't understand why you don't bring that into never pitched of relief. Eating it put it's your first picture in the League, game seven and it's game sign. Here you're, you know, a onrun lead. What did it matter? The way the nationals were playing. Would it have mattered? It could have. Yeah, I don't know. I mean the nationals were. They caught fire and had momentum. See, would you have taken out of no, ranky, no, no, they should have never took him. Think, once he gave up that hit, I knew he's going to a poll. It was the wall. Yeah, and he shouldn't have been pulled. Now. I didn't the nationals comment. I don't understand how they it kills me. It's I don't understand how they want. They just got so hot, but I don't think they were the best seam in baseball now, neither the thousand, our team, thousand love of cardinals, is the eggs. Yeah, yeah, they got so hot. They and every game they struck after the sixth inning. They just wide it, like yeah, that's all you need to do, and well, it isn't. That further proof, though, the phillies should have went all in at the trading dead. Absolutely, the pulling out, yeah, you absolutely. You don't know what happens. Like, I don't understand why they didn't want to play for that. While her statement, I'm like you, Sally, there's always a wild card team. Yes, the giants won two super bowls off being a wild card team. Yeah, that's no, but the father to your point, you're right that even baseball there's you know, even if they don't make the world series. I mean the rays went to the A. I'll see. Yeah, they were wild card team this year. Yeah, we can't just a well, the year that we won, Boston was the best team, at least thing America League. I don't was Tampa. Must have been a while car, because and bay was not. They would temple on the division the air. Oh wait, Dampa Bay was really hot there. Yeah, they had like ord was actually the cubs and I'm sorry, what was that? In the wait, the cubs were the best team and they got dropped. Wow, that's what I remember that. They got dropped by the bruise and I was like, Yep, that's huge. That just that just got us into the world series. I remember thinking that. But I always, I always thought if we had played Boston, we probably would have lost the world series. Oh, you knows, you don't have to worry about it, but I have to worry. I miss postseason baseball. I hope GIR already. I think Girardi will bring it back Garaktter, get me a Stacus. They do a commodation. Yeah, got to get packed bedroom. Yeah, anybody ever been banned from a stadium? Yeah, three girls. She's that story. How does we're not doing that. There's also doing the guy from Barstool Portnoy. He's apparently been banned from is it the Saints Stadium? The Patriots? I wish they were born. How do how do you like? Like how security do that though? Like, well, because they know that you're coming in again. These girls were banned from any MLB game. Yeah, because forever whatever, All Saints Day, yesterday, please, for love of where's IT bring down being? We don't need to go into detail what they did. I know the whole band thing. It's not being specific with what they did. Yeah, the back of the ticket says you're not able to go in there and promote a business. Or do we? Yeah, and that's what they did. And that's what they did. Yes, I wish they would bar band Marlin man from the stadiums because I sick of seeing him with his orange. Wait. So, if if you're not allowed to promote a business or any of that, yes, did we? Are? We technically leave banned from Tennessee. Did we put stickers in the same or now conversation city and stickers. I thought you put there's something the stadium. That's why I thought yes, right, there was they doings behind me. Yeah, I just don't I don't understand in the security, because I've seen a video of portnoy actually like security coming up and taking him out of his states.

Also, how do you it's also, hasn't it's also what they did. You have kids watching? Yeah, there's a decency angle there where they go. You know what you're going to do this you we're just going to nip it in the bud and you're done. I mean mean, I'm all right with it. Clever youse where. Yeah, I see that. Yeah, no, no, nip it in the bud. Stop. I actually do. Didn't do that over pose. I swear to God, I really didn't. Yeah, sure, no, I didn't, mad we got let's get to us. If you look at the Ben Simmons make it anyway, not if I'm a security guard. Right, I don't know why you're going with this. Like sure, ladies, come on in then, please, please come in. Either way. Their band. I thought you were going to try to figure out if they were the ones that ever banned? No, and how do you enforce that? That's that was where I started this conversation. How do you enforce it? Very I mean, you think some schmock security guard up in Milwaukee's really going to be looking out for them? Three, I don't think they have to. I mean with all the face recognition stuff nowadays, I think it's really that hard. If you're you, they got cameras you everywhere. Plus you're transferring tickets now most of the time to Uh Huh, so people don't have hard tickets there. Yeah, mobile. So I don't think it's that hard. I mean, could they get into a stadium? Sure, I guess they could. They could buy a couple stubs outside get in, but right, whatever. I think it's the point that they made a point that hey, your band. I'm sure they could rest in the band at some point, but whatever. So how about Ben Simmons Making Chart Town step? That was all scredible. You think Joe should have got more than two games? No, yes, no, I figured I figured we'd have some disagree. He didn't. He in se might have instigated him, but he didn't. He didn't throw a punch, he walked out of the fight. Did you need it? Listen, I would. He defended himself. I was entertained by the postgame annex and the twitter and in the Instagram, but at some point, like it's not the WWF, it's it's a little ridiculous, to be honest. He's that good of a player. Knock it off. You owned him on the court. Did you really need to go blow them up on Instagram, say something about his mother, the whole thing, like stop, you owned them. You're in his head. You're right, you're in his head enough. Yeah, but I don't think he's not gonna stop. It's Joel and it's just so he is. He's got years ahead of them before he stops selling. Boy, are and they're all playing into it. Yeah, but you don't need it. But you know, I agree, you don't need he's so great. You just the first time we lost them for a couple games. Yeah, now we can't. We need to win the Eastern Conference. That's not and you've got to tell and you've got a tough road trip. You've got Portland Tonight, you've got Utah and you've got Denver. Those are some your he's out for two of those game. I think he comes back for you to all those tough Games we finished second place in where a game out, we're yeah, don't look saying to this. But but do you really need again, even with the instigation thing, I get it. You're owning him. Do you need to pick a fight? Like you've been injury prone. Do you your face got broken years ago at this you want to take a punch to the face and listen, if he catches an elbow in the post and eat something happens? I'm all right with it. But does he need to pick a fight? Yeah, it's like and good, it's like, we get it. You guys are a tight group. All right, great, yeah's just move on and play. I loved it. It was like wwe afterwords, right, yeah, yeah, box it, yeah, getting the crowd going and his fine with all that. But the postgame, the yeah, all the text hers, the first but this has been building up for years. But just say that, and now they finally got a chance to let it out. Just keep eating them though, keep beating everybody, Guy Dominating. I do like a bit of the the rivalry there, though. The actually, yeah, yeah, you know, contempt for other players, where you know the Jersey swops after the game, like I don't hate you back, I hate like at that. Yeah, I agree that. What did you see where Jimmy Butler was like why did he have to he joking around, but he's like why did he have to bring me into this? Yeah, Butler, he was reference. Yeah, any towns cry. It's just what did you see his parents when? And he was walking in a tunnel, the mother giving him. Yeah, she was gone. Shit, my friend, my body, my body control. Yeah, my buddy works security down there, Matt, and he I was because he was he works the sixers tunnel and he was he was a I don't he can't see him in a fight, but I saw him in different clips and I text ims like Ooh, I weren't you separate now, fighty. So you kidding me? I'm not stopping that. And then and then he texted me later on he's like we did have to kick out cat's parents, though, because his mom was trying to get down into the tunnel like freaking out and be yeah, freaking out, and so the security had to kick them out because she was just going knots and her the dad was trying to hold her back. Like relax, but she was going not. That's her baby boy from Edison, New Jersey. Yeah, he said these are phillies. Man. He's all, yeah, did you see that? They ran up the steps to yeah, yeah, that where the sort of teams going to learn? You know, like Yahop going on. Yeah, you just get blown stuff, you get embarrassed and steps. Do it after the game. Yeah, listen, you want to go, do it, just don't put it on social media like you just asking for you you are poking the bear when you do that. But I encourage the bears to do that today. If you say you...

...want to meet up. Yeah, the steps. All right. Any parting words? When a little over time, we talked a little bit of hockey. So I don't feel like we need to do much more hockey. They started off on last night in a shout out. They finally want to want to shut out game. Did they win last night? Yeah, they wanted. Yeah. Then the shoot yeah, it is or shout out of shoot at. I mean yeah, devils, devils. The sixers didn't play last night. Yea Im Portland tonight. I think the sixers do loose anything. The heck coach called out shrew yeah, and that's the first I've ever heard. I did see that. Yeah, it's amazing how kind of where he's come from being called the best player in the world from Lobulett now being called Yeah, how many years ago was that? I know, it's just, it's just I'm and I was the biggest room fan at the time. I thought he was going to take that stuff. How you look at on time timing. You're our brother. Take your time. You know that. I would have just dropped this here because I know this guy got a few you tweaked in a texturing aother this week. Ben Simmons is Claud drew, until he knows it's jolly, starts hitting news fifteen twitters. Here's the difference between Ben Simmons and Claud Duro Benson. What's time we have been. Simmons has won a playoff series. Ben Simmons has been a part of a team that has won a playoff series. Drews want to plays drew, not as a captain. Not as a captain the final seems not as a captain, but he was the best player on that finals team. Like Richards, Jeff Carter, nod. You look at you at the most points here twenty four, twenty six point. See the play. The problem. Care was the best player that year, but other than that, as far as towns he's the best player on the eyes. Here's the difference, though. Drew, to your point, was supposed to be the best player and cock star, his generational player, and he's been very good. Ben Simmons is general with what he can do. Absolutely I mean they're throwing comparisons to magic jason out there, and justifiably so. The what he hears at the ball in the open floor, the way he plays. There's nobody the plays like men said, it's reminiscent of watching. Here's another difference suit. When's the last time drew is singlehandedly taken over a game? Pittsburgh series, that opening shift? It's all right, what was that? How many years ago? Is that full years ago? When ben can take over a game any ninety wants. Drew doesn't have that anymore. We'll see it more often. We'll see what he does with in beat out these next two games. Yeah, and I still don't understand what you don't get about. If he would learn how to shoot a jump shot, but he would be completely on stop you. You complain about one facet of his game because he gives you so much. Could have the text the way after he almost averages a triple double. What's more to add here's about a triple dog. He's going on. He could average six through tens and three. He's an all star. He's he's an all star. He is going to win that get you. He's an Allstar in his third year playing this suld be. I absolutely agree. I absolutely agree. He needs a jump shot. He needs to learn it and he's doing that. I think he develops it this year. I think he opens it up this year. It's the fourth game in the year, two years now. He's going to through it this year's want to through with this quick, quick, quick trivia question. How many undefeated teams are there are in the NBA right now? One correct, yes, and they're guy healing everybody. Okay, from how they won't be undefeated. That was interesting. They gave I keep going back to that game where they against the Hawks, which are is a that's a good win, a very good lobster, good team and forty points in the first quarter. Yep, and it didn't face them. Nope, that's that's a specialty. No, you said in an our texturing father. You said this team wears down other teams with their deep that's what they're going to do all year. They don't have to love that. Oh I did. I like that. I don't mind. You keep saying teams, team, team, team, team. I just made the comment about Simmons. I hate doesn't have a complete game, and I know he does. He's got a potential, but that's what this whole flyers organization was built on. JERU's potential. He had MVP years, he had years very leading scoring, but they're never got to place. Be playing to their strengths. You know, would you rather in bed get his thirty, or would you rather been chucks up three more shots just to prove your point? I like my star player to be the guy that can give the ball to it can the game get me. He is. You give Joe well and beat the ball at the end of the game. So that's not the way he's build though. What this team is build that this is Ben Simmons. He's the superstar, and I'm not saying that Joel's not a superstart. Looking Joel's my favorite player on the team. No, it's Joel's team. If you have five seconds left in the game, you get bet. You give Joel and be the ball in the post. If you have one, should but that's not the one. His game. I play who you know? Why could if he give it the Ben I'm daring him to take the out. You're not putting in the lane. Going to give it all ahead and take that fifteen four, but the sixers aren't giving it to so he penetrates and he kicks. Now I'm not going to let you do that. I'm packing stop them to can you putting all people in the lane and then you kick it at the bias has for an open three. That's the way. They're no, not for but you dare him to take that open jump shot right and it is not only to make it and then, worst yet, he's not going to take it. You don't understand the game, because then the minute you...

...do that, he takes the guy to the whole. They double team him and he kicks out to Tobias or Josh. Or do you watch? Do you watch Lebron? You Watch Lebron Right, we've all seen Lebron. His game. How similar is it to Ben's? Lebron drives the lane continuously. He beats his man off the dribbles, he gets trapped in the lane and he that doesn't what. No beak depends him. It's is in pretty yeah, remarkable. But he gets to the lane and he either has the option of going up and getting a foul called or he kicks it out. That's exactly what Ben does. Get the kick out part, but I'm I'm the spaces the for so much too. Shot. He spaces the for to make it. You guys do know their microphones. You don't have to yell at it's we get we get loud when we care about something. We get heated. Yeah, you should be in the living room with US watching a game. Sometimes the good thing is the honestly, the debate is not going to be for the defensive player on which other teams? Literally, it's going to be on the sixers. Oh yeah, it's defensive players. Yeah, that is the creed, because crazy. The most disappointing thing I seen. If there is anything to be this to bias. He's not living up to that contract so far. What it's for teams in would not there for a no, no, I agree. That's why I'm saying player. Yeah, but he had a big shot in the in the wanny movement waning moments of he's too streaky. He's very streaky and I don't like that go through him. But the thing that's no, no, it doesn't. But here's the thing with this team is he still plays defense, like when gradds would go through his slumps. Yeah, yeah, he was useless, absolutely useless. Play defense. Yeah. So people are freaking out. Well, they're not making threes. Yeah, they're taking away so many other points by their defense. So it's evening out more so actually it's not even average. It's actually an advantage now. So I'm just not worried. They're going to just take team souls away from them. Yeah, they're the second half. There's no easy shots from these other teams second half basketball. There's no, there's not any shocking three points. Yeah. Yeah, Josh Richardson has been greats and thible, yeah, players and come out of leading in steals. Right now. Yes, yeah, him, him, and been him and Ben. Yeah, Bible and Josherson, I think, have been great so far and I'm very excited for that. I absolutely cons heat up a little bit. Who I told you, guys, I don't. I'm tired of fur con his yellow ugly sneakers to like versus Mikey miss with the furk mom he's average in thirteen points a game off the bench. That's a nice little I'm tired of six man. I just love the like. That's the right man. Those are our arguments with this team. Is like, yeah, the minutes, right, that's a good look out deep your benches to Trey Burke hasn't even played yet, and Trey Burke was pretty good. I mean I really on it as just where you do a deficient before, because you went jj and then Wal enough rot that brand specially get. Oh yeah, for because when you remember when we will go out, we have a fifteen point of lead. All right, it's we knew that they was going to get down to three and then, yeah, back in. Yep, it act going to be a rest al. Horford is a huge move, but that's what you want to see. These must two games without your well, yeah, Corford, gin there and eat that. He's gonna have to get significant minute and and then you'll have you had either go after a shooter or go after a relief for beat. I would have smart and it was much better mood to go after wrefor and now you get Kylo Quinn to in. Kla Quinn hasn't been too bad. It's the always make a movement, distracted trait that he's better than watching. Are Johnson. That was the Bens last year. I'm your Johnson. Yeah, like, that's it. Now you got Al Warford and Klo Quinn are shot away from the Eastern Conference finals. Yep, he traveled just like, just like Rudy was off sides. Yeah, and you'll never get will never get to you. Every knew that was going to be revenge for a one. It's like they have the last shot to it. Like yeah, that was going in. That was so annoying. This is a hit the front. I'm like all right, and then it came back. I was like, Oh wait, like double doing the other way. Yeah, not, lar COT rouple taking it back to the eagles. Right, good, and that's that end. Thanks for a little extra time there. I just wanted to drop because I knew that you guys are can find up. Look, I'm not I'm not down on Simmons, that I love, and I'm not down on the team. I'm just saying not we're talking about potentially make it. See if you want the complete game, I want to see him start hitting some much and I get he doesn't need to. He could score whatever he were forever he wants. But you want to complete package, I want to see him. You just had rather you have these preconceived molds of what a basketball player should be. You know you want Simmons to shoot, but then in beat shoots and you're the first one bitching and complaint. It's is you. Seven foot two guys shouldn't be out on the line shoot seven percent. He's shooting when he's I rather he shoots sixty five percent from down low. He is you are, so one thousand nine hundred and eighty six. Yeah it, and what's wrong with that? And I'm sits long shorts good. I like son, but shoot a seven foot two guy. It's all dark. It's the new NBA. Should he be out...

...on the line shooting? It's the new NBA. It's the way the leagues going. Dirk's in the hall of Dirk's gonna be a hall of fame. How I get it, but he's the first big got it. went out there and did that. Dude, you're pushing up a river at this point. It's all going to be at the Parad why shoot my second foot to two hundred and fifty pound guy? Because it's the NBA now and he's done and he's developed. He's developed that part of his game makes him that much more dangerous. Yeah, because now you got to guard it, the guard it, and if they guarded, he does the pump fake, he goes around, he drives to the whole exactly. He's euro step into the hole. It's unbelievable. You need to cherish what you're watching. He's a dude. It's not a problem out there. He's generational. That's when he's out there. It's not a problem until they start getting whooped in games because they have no presence underneath and who's good. But that's okay. That's why it's not a problem. You know. So it's the new NBA if that's the style they're playing and it fits them. If he shoots, look, I want to see them away us three threes a game. He's a center and he's averaging twenty nine, but he's can shoot three. Three shoes, three a half he shoots. He's if you look at his averages, he's averaging like three three's a game. Look at the stats. Well, in the past he's shot a lot more than three. It's he's say. Yeah, he's developed that part of his game, though. He's like putting down and sprowls it tight end. We'll see you next week. Try to get it back to the eagles close. All right, and he EDIV. I don't. I should have not a for final hat where it's last time. Yeah, all right. Thanks again, nor sponsor and your phillycom POPs with kids are whiskey. Will see here next week. We got the Bi Week. Will see what we can get something specially going on. Its Week Fun.
