"They covered a lot of this on BGN radio episode thirty one John Stolnis and Brandon league out in Aden. Forever rain, but we're going to get into this real quick. Just just to go over it did not participate again. Michael Bennett Carson Wentz. When's implying Bennett will be playing you know, how this goes would Bennett late in the season. We've been over this limited participation DJ Alexander the hamstring on Jeffrey with the ribs golden Tate with a knee also on Jeffrey, golden Tate. Mount read about them. All indications are that they are playing Sidney Jones with a hamstring may or may not play. Now, I've gotten questions you've got questions about Sidney Jones about. While should they upset the apple cart. Should they start him on the outside? No upset the apple cart. That was cool. Little. So this is what this is what Sidney Jones does. If Douglas goes down if not Mattis goes down if crayola blonde goes down or even out for four or five plays. They get a knock they stinger. Whatever the case is they go out. Sidney Jones is coming in said of Josh Hawkins that to me is a win for the eagles of Sidney Jones is able to go. So no, I don't think Sidney Jones should get significant reps. But having him there for death is a big issue when you think about what else can come in instead of him what Sydney lets you do as a player who's not starting for this game. We should not. But could be healthy question. Mark and has outside an slot experience. Is if you come out and the saints, which I kind of expect them to do or like, let's see how this von Maddox? Character does against Michael Thomas, you know, who's a fantastic route runner very physical grade size. Good catch. Radius. Whatever if they like to three straight drives they're really trying to hit those isolation rows multi break routes down Robin settlement success with against Maddox. Heck come out the next drive put sitting on the outside put managed in the slot and see what the saints too. You can give them as long as Sydney's like healthy to go rotating looks where you can really confound what coverage your play and making more difficult for them to draw matchups by putting out to three different players. Maddix LeBlanc Jones, all complain the nickel or move to the outside. Right. And like you don't wanna be changing pitches a ton in the secondary. Because that's how you get communication issues in busted coverages. I acknowledged that. But if you vary on a drive basis, you're gonna make it very difficult for breeze and Peyton you'd be like, oh, they're doing this on the sideline. Let's come out in the next driving. Do this will you're not sure right. Because if they find a weak spot they like go ahead and insert Sidney Jones somewhere and moved back to like a coverage. You know bracket used in like twelve you know, what I mean, just like you. You can go, and you can give them different looks because they don't really know what a Maddix Sidney Jones Cremona belong for Douglas secondary is gonna look like you know, what I mean? So you can insert various plays that makes brief hold onto the football longer. And I said in the last podcast eagles win this game. It's because they hassled breeze before horse with incredible amount of pressure..

"Tom fair for the Chicago Bears last night after nine o'clock. We got the word that Trey Burton was was questionable with a groin injury. And then of course, Eddie Jackson has missed the last two games of the ankle injury. What do we know knowledge? Trae burden is not going to suit up today. He's obviously aggravated something with. His framework that isn't comfortable enough for him to go out and play. You know, Kevin white is the other you got Eric Kush, Rashad cower. Trae Burton Giovanni, whims, Nick Williams, and Aaron Lynch they are on the inactive list. So that that's what we go from there. The eagles. It's Carson Wentz. Mike Wallace Sidney Jones DJ Alexander chance war Mack. Matt prior in Bruce Hector. No surprising there mentions for the eagles. But yeah, when you talk about trae burden in the thing that's rise me to Ron is. No, Trey Burton, and then no Giovanni Williams because I thought last week after Giovane whims happening a little bit of showing from south. If you did have shoulder issue with happy Miller trae burdens out of the lineup. You have no cabin white. I'm really surprised. So that means that Daniel Brown can be a guy that can fit into this. You know can fit into the receiver group much as antibody. So Eddie Jackson's good to go. Tommy. Well, I listen, he's not in the inactive. I don't know if he's ready to go. But those I the names that I gave you on the inactive list are what I got from. You have to assume he would be playing if he's active in the game at least starting and then we'll see what happened right right right now. The other two guys Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller, the Anthony Miller thing concerns me just because it was a non contact and look like it just kind of popped out as he was kind of you know, juke at the sideline. And then it's the second time that thing has popped out know, the professionals will tell you the more pops out the more apt you are to have that shoulder pop out again. Well, the thing that worried me is when it popped out last week in the game. He was only carrying the football. He didn't have any content in. So yes, Watson, you're right. If you're out there, and you're going through a year running style on the pounding of the ground, and you become susceptible to something like half that happening. That's what worries me about him being. A game day active. Taylor gabriel. I believe he's going to be healthy. The thing that I have to revisit is Allen Robinson missing the game last week due to some rid issues. How is he healed up enough? So man, the I think there's going to be questioned Martin receiver receiving core. But you know, you you got guys like Tai Kwon Mozelle and to recall and that can play multiple positions. Josh Bellamy's out their brand brand Bon occurred Daniel Brown and Adam Shaheen for the tight end position should be able to hold it down. Just to me. Tommy. And you guys were there at Minnesota fr from where we sit at the studio just appeared. Once those two injuries happen. The Taylor Gabriel Anthony Miller we just looked very pedestrian at the wide receiver position there. Just didn't seem anything really stressing the defense. Right. Well, you know, how many reps that they really hadn't game week preparation, which you bond Williams and Kevin white. And you know, Schwab see how these reps are delegated throughout the course of the week of practice. Your starters are gonna get ninety. Eighty eight percent of them sell repetitiously with a young developing corner. Like, Mitchell Trubisky doesn't have the reps with those guys. I thought we'd see him a little bit more today. But you know, I just think Matt Nagy, I don't know necessarily pick something up a sleeve, but he's always being Ben prepared for these instances as we walk him alshon Jeffery back to Soldier Field. Does he get chased around the stadium by califor-? I don't think so I think they're gonna let both of them handle those duties it's going to be about making sure they have that aggressive pass rush. So the guys can withstand what their requirements are. I don't know if you really want to chase these guys chase one guy around with Al Shahed because every one of their receivers are the you know, there's a similarity to them. So I think they gotta be equally balanced on the right as to the laugh..

"He has no gas in the tank, and it's because hamstrings injured and he gets pulled on the next drive because if you can't run a corner, you know, what I mean? And so it's you know to make conclusions about Sidney Jones as long term outlook as a corn on the NFL off of this game is is to me a bad bad idea. Now, we've got other data we make inclusion Baggio Sydney's get bigger we talked about that a couple of weeks ago, you're at a point with this game specifically where given the that he came in a little bit hampered, and then he left and then he came back. You simply can't make any conclusions about him. So there's two more plays that I wanna talk about here. One that breaks, my heart and one that I absolutely love. I wouldn't say breaks my heart of the first one. That's actually makes me very angry. Let's talk about the one. I love. Let's go. Good news, bad news. Let's talk about some really I'm trying to. I think I've got it. Let's go. Okay. So try to try to guess what? The angry one is the one that I loved the Russell Douglas interception right coming from cover three. This is the same concept when the Dallas fronts here is the same concept that the Redskins beat the Cowboys on for a fifty three yard touchdown to Vernon Avis a few weeks back all Michael kaslo some plays. The four verticals look with trips to the right on the side. So the tight end in line nobody outside of him instead of going vertical tight end presses vertical. But then he goes to an outbreaking route towards the sideline here. Now that's going to leave some space for that deep over route. So what result does he's responsible for for that deep area? And he's also got keep an eye on that tight end on that outbreaking rows so resources able to get his is back to the quarterback. He sees the deep vertical route coming along his way to his side of the field. He peels off his deep responsibility saves a touchdown interception. Just a gorgeous play. This is kind of what we were talking about Douglas if he's up and down like mills, but he gives us some ball. Production thing is a net positive employs like this. It's those that give you hope that he isn't just dude that can't grasp his responsibilities of Lance's too much because this was textbook cover three play. One of the best place from deep. Of back on the eagles this season. That's how much like this play. Bam. Absolutely. And what you said there's something a perfect and it's worth saying again, I'm a known, Marcus Peters. Apologised have love Marcus Peters. It's very hard to stop NFL offense down a few noticed Mike, but we're producing passing yards in record setting rates over the past few years. So I am becoming increasingly less interested in corners who potentially like the really sticky man coverage. They can you know, cover guy all across the field. Well, apparently not quarters quarterbacks are getting more accurate. Why does he was getting bigger and better? Crazy catches, you know, with the way that NFL is spreading the wealth taking away a wide receiver one isn't as valuable to me anymore. Now, all a corner who has instincts size length and ball skills will now we have to create interception, which if NFL offenses are going to be moving the ball almost at will. I give me turnovers. Don't stop. Give me coverage coverage. Great. Okay. Cool cover guy tackle in like, obviously do that from that away. But a guy can produce him interceptions for me guy at eight interceptions has found a year. West Virginia led NCWA I'm talking about. Right. And you know, you go in the film. It's not just luck. Stop Douglas aggressive coming downhill when he's closing on short routes. He has you know that catch is a wide receiver catch, right? Like a lot of corners aren't catching that football dives got incredibly long arms a good ball skills. Good track. And you'll get that thing. Absolutely..

"Sidney Jones is a whole different proposition from the time you drafted him. It was the idea there's a long-term investment in a guy that when we finally get him on the field. He's going to be in not just a good. He's going to be an elite player. Well, right now to me, and I've looked at it. I've gone back to me. He is indistinguishable. From all these practice squad. Guys, you're playing with. I mean, he can't cover any can't tackle. So you told me what do you tell me what he offers at this point? That is that's a killer because you know, next year is when you're supposed to have the value of a high level player year three before you sign them. Maybe it's the way you don't have to pay Ronald Darby, take the money. You would have given Darby allocated to a different position slide Sidney Jones he's not making much jail mills not making much. That's how you kind of do this in a salary cap each if he can't hold up his end of the bargain as a quality cheap year three player, then it's a it's a failure. Hey ray. So it's huge. I mean, that's a real problem. That's a real scary one because he's here's a key player in their future. And I I understand he got off to a slow start. And I understand the injuries. But some of it like a lot of John, and I we even talked about this like in the spring, and in the summer all of a sudden, he's not like practicing for a week two weeks, and nobody can kind of tell you what the. The injury is. Well, he's he's you know, we're just shutting them down for what's that all about? And now he's getting a chance to play with no excuses and you have a play like the last play. You got to play like the first play from scrimmage at the saints run where that's his that's his that's his responsibility. That is that is his plate right in front of him. He's not blocked. It's him and Ingram in the whole any any bounces off that. Transit, dan. That's that's really scary. When does it become an indictment of Corey online? You know, we saw Sidney Jones at Washington look like perhaps the best cover corner coming out in the draft that year and we've seen Corey Graham play well at times last season. And now, it feels like the longer they're in the mix getting coach, you know, being a part of this defense things are deteriorating. Now there was a play by play in this game. Michael Thomas caught ball. I forget who the cornerback was to that side. It may have been a Sullivan. Corey Graham getting over there to cut it off. Tr- tried to undercut this thing by five yards. The only reason Michael Thomas didn't have you know, another touchdown seventy yard. Or whatever is is. He fell down. It was the worst one of the worst angles. I've ever seen taken by safety Corey undone. Is he all he is cracked up to be as as a coach so much success in in Denver with an incredible crop of Cornerbacks. Can he do the coaching thing when you've got players that aren't elite Allstars? Remains to be seen. I don't know. I mean, he certainly hasn't demonstrated. The way the way I kind of evaluate coaches is you look at a player when he first arrives at your team. Yeah. And then you look at him over time. And you ask yourself the question has he developed has improved. That tells you if your coaches are coaching, right? Have you seen any defensive back at better here? One guy that came in at one level, and you say man, he's really gotten better. Jalen did from year one to two but other than that he he regrets this year, but he did from year one to tell. But that's probably the only one and he went backwards. Yes. And he had a great pass rush last year which did help let's talk to Taryn Lehigh valley. Who joins us Tara happy thanksgiving. Yes. Happy thanksgiving, gentlemen. Ray? It is a privilege to speak to you. Because actually one of the things I wanted to talk about you answer perfectly with micro. The only question I do have is is anybody wanna know what my golden Tate is thinking about his offensive coordinator coordinator, stating he doesn't not sure how to integrate them into the system. Get me outta here in six games. Right. I mean, if you're gonna sure how could you be happy right now? Right. And Mr. de camera, I got a proposition for you. Yes. Wondering if you're interested in joining the sisterhood of traveling shoes. I actually equate to your shoe size and bent, so. Wow. Hey, listen to this year. I did a little research. I found out the brand of Joe shoes that he says are European sized and European sizing is actually forty. Yeah. That's that's in the forties. That's not what you're talking about their echo shoes. They are American sized shoes. And also. I don't know if I. And really, honestly I've tried on where sometimes I the nine sometimes at eight and a half well who drops to drop two and a half. They didn't have this this. Doesn't matter. Well, I'm not going to say what I wanted to say again once. Tara Tara house, the west wing gone aptly believe it. I'm on Caesar show eight it's actually pretty good. I'm I'm not gonna lie won't it's not as good as game Berlin's are a batch shows like that. But it's intriguing. I i'm. Are working tardy. Get anyone to thanksgiving dinner with you who do you want there from watching his special? I think for the Super Bowl about his depression. And how he came back and become the athlete that he is now is Mr Brian Dawkins? That's an interesting answer wonderful tower. Appreciate the call Darren in south Philadelphia. Darren your WIP good. Good afternoon. Joe Ray Ritchie. I to say happy thanksgiving my favorite radio show on God's green earth stare happy. Thanksgiving. If you guys weren't doing the thing.

Episodes episodes in the coin, listen this week, what the hell man, I I've been dealing with work and getting my housemate everything's giving. Good for you. And Joe are you regretting not jumping on the sooner. No. But I'm enjoying what he said. I don't think he's going to. Does he wants me to say that I'm not regretting not watching the sooner? I'm happy. Are you happy that you're finally happy and finally Washington? Sure that you're gonna continue to watch. We'll get to the end and I'll figure out if I started over again. But yeah. Yeah.

"And I don't think that's the issue. I don't think they're always. Being put in bad positions. But they're also not executing. So the problem in it's just you know across the board. Again, there's it's across the board of this team. Lots of blame to go around. It's frustrating. It's not fun the other foreign five, and they could easily be foreign six on Sunday of every expectation that they arguing to lose this game. And it's so yeah. Yeah. That's right. If you don't wanna watch the games, you can listen to us talk about him all week now. But you've probably gonna watch the game. Just a couple of quick things on the injury report hearing TIMMY Jernigan good play this week against the saints. Of course, not on the injury list because he's still on the NFL, but while touring Mike Wallace out of his walking boot. But he hasn't started running yet. I mean, this is about the time Wallace is able to play the season is gonna be all wrapped up. I mean, I understand why he wants to come back, but your fast receiver is just out of his walking. Hasn't started running yet? I mean, are we, you know, what's what's the point here? Still know Darren sproles at practice and limited in practice on Thursday lane Johnson. And Hello de NADA. I think that was a big thing last week to be LG is all week long lane. Johnson was practicing. It looked like he was going to play. And then suddenly right before the game. He's out and you had to put by tie in at right tackle for him. And then you run Josh Adams behind by fourth and one it's just when. -ation? Yeah. That to me is is is the opin any of this season is okay. What are you gonna do lane Johnson's hurt you have to make the best of a bad situation? So you put your the guy in there that you have to be your versatile backup guy. Who's clearly not as good as the other guys. But you know, you hope that by with a little bit of help can can get the job done. But on a fourth in one your your you've got to recognize the personnel. You have. And that's what I don't understand is running. I mean you wanna run Josh Adams in that situation. If you're going to use one of the three running backs, that's probably the best call, but I'm not running to the right behind the one offensive lineman that you can't really trust. At this point. I'm running. I'm running to bind Jason Peters, even as banged up as he is. And and trying to go that route, you know, I it just that's that's part of what's been going on with this team. This year is is yes, they've dealt with a lack of injuries. But it doesn't seem like the team has been able to weather the storm and and make good decisions based on the personnel that the actually have out there. So hopefully, a healthier lane Johnson this week helps out a little bit Bilgee. It will see he didn't go through a pregame workout last week, which is not a good sign. Then clearly meant he wasn't gonna play at that point. Sidney Jones did by contrast in also is ramped up to a full participant in practice. You said so good to have him back. He talked about the top of the show, and we'll see essentially how he does starting on the outside. But yeah, the rest of the report, I don't know if the player, I would honestly. Yes, that you wouldn't just because you know, he was limited last week and he didn't play asleep. The limited all again, I'm just guessing he's not gonna play. We'll see him Friday. Final injury report. He's full going Friday. I was sudden the payment that changes. But I think you just go back to the line as a whole on both sides of the ball. Like, what was the strength of the eagles last year? There was the trenches and this year. Can you really say the same thing? Now, really the the defensive line has dropped off. I think there's still the strength of the defense overall than. I think they're above average unit. They're not bad all of a sudden, they're just not quite as dominant as they were last year. They don't they wear down late in the should honestly this should wait on late because there's no rotation that you don't have. Oh, Alan to journey hasn't been here. Dirk hurt..

"He's going to get like hate dropped in a lot of leagues this week. But his usage was all all that. You know is very very normal. You just didn't get any targets. But he ran his usual number of routes played his usual numbers NATs. Just the Saint the flow of the game boded poorly for trae Kwan Smith who runs downfield routes. And there was no reason for the saints to throw downfield last week when you're stomping your opponent, you know, fifty one to fourteen or whatever it was. So I don't think they're going to stop the eagles fifty one to fourteen may maybe they will stop the eagles. But I think that the eagles are going to score more points than than than that. So I I liked trae Kwan Smith a lot you look at the eagles secondary. And I did a tweet about this earlier in the week that the first team secondary had Ron Rodney McLeod. Free safety. It had Sidney Jones slot corner. It had Ronald Darby right corner. Inner had Jalen mills left corner. And it had Malcolm Jenkins strong safety. And there's one dude remaining from from that now come Jenkins, and I don't think he's having his best year. I don't you just you don't see him making plays very much this season. So I, you know, they're secondary is almost the worst possible shape. And I think they can saints can absolutely take advantage of that been watching just not running pass routes anymore. They have used Dan Arnold. The have used Gino, Josh hill. They want. They wanted to use Dez Bryant, but he tourists. I now they're gonna try with Brandon marshal. So. I think that. I I'm not trying to use any of the of the saints tight ends. It's three man rotation. Maybe even afford man rotation. I think that Brandon Marshall is going to be actually more of a tight end. Then a wide receiver Alvin Kamara monster. You no good. If the if the eagles play good run defense. Good. That's good for Alvin Kamara. You want him to be getting the ball in the passing game in the eagles have given up a lot of production. In the passing game two opposing running backs. The game last week really set up well for the Bengals to I mean for the saints to give Mark Ingram the ball, more than usual. We've seen his two big games. So far this year. They both came in very similar style of games. They just controlled the game against the Redskins. And they controlled the game against the Bengals and Mark Ingram. Eight in those games. Hey, if you think that the saints are going to control this game against the eagles. You know, go for it with Mark Ingram. I think the eagles are going to show up in score points. But you know, guess what I thought that too last week in that did not happen. So eagles Carson Wentz. Yeah. I mean, I'm playing him in daily fantasy this week absolutely transparent with Zakar tes Zakar, shoot it. You know, I thought that there was a chance that golden Tate might cut into his targets. No golden Tate was the eagles fourth receiver in his first game. And I'm sure that his usage is going to rise. But. He didn't do anything to cut into Zakar its production in in week in the first week Zakar said his best game all year from a box score standpoint. So I think that is absolutely the stack there to continue to roll with our Sean Jeffrey probably going to get a lot of Marshon Lattimore, and I'll show on Jeffrey. He's looked great at times this year, but he's been really up and down in in what has been a fairly up and down passing game. And you know, there's no vertical threat to help. These guys out there really is no vertical threat in the eagles passing attack. And that has been. You know, I think that has been one of the biggest issues for them, really, you know, last year, at least it was Tori Smith they were hoping that it would be Mike Wallace. But he got injured, and they have a bunch of other underneath dudes. No one's even averaging over twelve yards per catch..

"Into the abyss of four and six in in New Orleans. Dallas is added Lanta. I'd rather face Atlanta. Obviously than saints douse better position right now the eagles it looks like mazing things like that turn especially since Ronald Darby is now out for the year the top cornerback in Philadelphia non-contact injury last night. Doug Peterson confirming just before we went on the air. It's an ACL tear done for the year, and they're already without the injured Jalen mills and Sidney Jones they got to come back. That's their defensive back situation heading into New Orleans at four and five. Wow. No other put it is. Well. Eagles also have to come out here to Los Angeles still to come. I mean, Philly sitting there at four and five right now their next games as I mentioned there at New Orleans their home for John the giants a Monday night a home date against Washington that must win then they return then they play the Dow Dallas Cowboys again going to Dallas at the Rams on a Sunday night home for Houston at Washington. And every single one of them trying to beat the knock off the defending Super Bowl champs. This is serious problem for them. And again, I took that jeeze during the bye said it was the best buy week ever. That was my first down last week. I know my four doubts. I down was eagles are going to win the NFC Washington MAC, not even probably won't even make the playoffs is that my second down was Carolina would be a wild card, and that's the falcons would be the second wildcard team. And they look terrible. Bruno dreadful, their usual. I mean, nobody self-destructs on a half yard line. Quite like the Atlanta Falcons who turned it over on downs inside the five yard line. And then returned and needed a fourth down prayer of throw into the end zone by Matt Ryan actually score on their second trip inside the five sitting on the half yard line. It's absurd. Their problems that they have. And now I mean in 'lanta, I mean it landed has looked like a playoff team. All of a sudden, they're if Dallas that was on Sunday night shows up this coming Sunday early window on FOX in Atlanta. That's that's done that's done. And all of a sudden, they're they're renaissance to get back to foreign four goes right down the tubes. Now, my third down last week while we're revisiting all this is that the chargers were the best wildcard team in the AFC. And they went ahead and did what they needed to do in Oakland JV team. Okay. And 'cause raiders out of tank. My jets are learning real fast, and we'll hit that in the overreaction segments shortly. Okay. Is that the it with you're supposed to do? Melvin Gordon by the way, how terrific ac-. Lost. The chargers lost amongst everybody. And Gordon's lost amongst girly here in this town seventy-two Melvin Gordon's in studio on Wednesday on the show. As the chargers finally had home. They've been on the road quite a bit from London from Cleveland to London how about this. They went from Cleveland to London to a buy week to Seattle to Oakland. Guess what they want them? All. They won them. All now, they're home for Denver in Arizona. Welcome home. What do you think is the difference in them because in years past you know, they've been bitten by the injury bug. But it was charge is gonna charge though. They would just find ways to lose these then they would eventually try and they eventually get hurt too much. They don't have a kicker which is just like they in Alabama will never have kicker. So we'll just understand that. Melvin Gordon to me is a difference maker. He's so damn good a two way threat. He's so very good. And I'm not just saying that because he's coming on our show Wednesday. But I also said the second wildcard team. Tennessee titans. Dan, look yesterday defensive great. Okay. And they are now at five and four could you imagine if they're two point conversion attempt to try and beat the chargers at second in London at worked or if they didn't they have? I mean talk about a long flight home after that happened. They've rebound very nicely. Winning in Dallas. And then homing it's New England and Dion Lewis. Former New England patriot had this to say after the game. Yeah. Very common. Everybody's nothing. Played there..

"Who else Darren sproles Sidney Jones? Somebody missing. There was another one that was ruled it was ruled Darren Sidney Jones Darren sproles somebody else was ruled out this week. But. With all that said. Still you still have an eagles team. That is so much better. It just so much better than the Cowboys. And the eagles have not had a great season. But they're kind of putting it together. And obviously. They're clearly without question. Good enough to beat the Cowboys. But I I miss killing the Cowboys fans. I do miss that. Because there's such pathetic losers. Totally pathetic losers. Losers. Sidney jones. Jalen those into. Yeah. Sidney Jones Jalen knows endurance. Bras of the ones that are out. Out for Sunday. But so we can talk about eagles. And whether it's still. The eagles. Dallas rivalries, always the best. Because everybody's Raba was the best, but Dallas seems to become seems to have become more irrelevant. As far as the top rivalry. You always can't stand the Cowboys. And it's easy. It's easier because Jerry Jones who might be a nice guy, and he is a nice guy. But absolutely has ruined any chance and continues to ruin any chance to Cowboys have of winning. Amari Cooper might be a nice wide receiver. But you don't give up a first round draft pick for nobody else was going to do that. So he's kind of given away picks that he needs for his future for the hope that he can do something this year. A good game last week. And they didn't score a point in the second half. The reason they scored in the first half is because Tennessee turn the ball over. It's a great situation for the eagles as well. Because they're they're coming off the bye week, which you really need after playing in London. Everybody does I I don't know. Why teams and they have the option to take it after that game. I don't know. Why teams wouldn't wanna take a pie week after flying to London? But. They come off a bye week and the Cowboys come off on Monday night game and then play on the road that is really a nasty situation. But I missed the rivalry that that at some at some point it really was it really was a great rivalry. And I don't know if it's the same. But I'm sure people will tell me whether they were not. I mean, that's one of the things that I will ask this morning. Is the rivalry still the same? Is it still energize you as much as it did? When the eagles play the Cowboys. You always want to beat them because the Cowboys, but you wanna beat the giants are pathetic to. The redskins. A rivalry. But not. The redskins. You're just the Red Sea. They're not good enough. Either. In the division outside of the eagles. The eagles are still a good football team. But I don't think Washington good football team. I clearly don't think Dallas is a good football team. And the giants really really really bad. No quarterback there. They made a mistake drafting a running back at number two. You have to take a chance for a quarterback. You can get a running back. I don't good. I don't care how good saquon Barkley was. They made a mistake. So we'll talk about the eagles Dallas rivalry. And I don't know how anybody can think that the eagles won't win this game. So that's one of the things. We'll talk about this morning. Another thing is the Phillies free agents. And I. I think there's no question in my mind. The eagles are going to sign. One of the top free agents. Whether it's either Harper Machado Machado is a better player Harper. I mean, they're both really really good players. But I think Machado is a better player with his skills that comments still sticks in people's minds, and in Philadelphia, you can't not hustle. Doable. Harare got got through it for so long because when you produce. People just overlook it. And they overlook it too much. They overlooked it with Oduber Herrera who that would be the first player that I would trade if I was the Phillies you can't win with Oduber Harare. He just doesn't have that mentality in that attitude and the drive that it takes to be a winner. And he's not as good as people thought he was now pitchers have caught up to him. Figured out. He just. And it doesn't take long for people and scouts to figure out weaknesses. But there's so much bad pitching in the league. Did he got by for for a couple of years? And look like he was a good player. Because even though they had a good scouting report on them. He just the pitchers just couldn't. Bad pitchers. Don't make good pitches. But as far as free agents, they will get one of them. But I I love all these stories that Scott Boras the agent. For Bryce Harper plants, and he's played plants. I get along with John Middleton. Great is always seem with John Middleton. You know, he's stroking all the media people stroking, John Middleton, John Milton smarter than that. Stroking John Middleton, new try to get other teams involved to build up the number. On white Bryce Harper will ask for. I'm sure he's laid it out there for for whatever teams that will listen in the vicinity the kind of the number in the vicinity, but I don't think he's put a number out there yet. He hasn't. We heard this story that the Washington nationals did and I wouldn't. I would be shocked. If it wasn't Scott Boris put it out there. Well, no, we're not going to accept three hundred million. And we're not going to accept the contract without an opt-out. The opt-out drives me crazy. You sign a contract for that kind of money. You commit to that contract for that period of time Bonaly opt-outs the big thing. So after four years or three years he has an opt-out Mike trout signs two years from now. And he will get more than these guys. Get because he's the best player in baseball. And then they'll these players will want an opt out to try to get up to that level. It's just it's it's never ending. It's a never ending problem. I would not give an opt out to a player. Listen, we're going to give you this kind of money, and you have to commit us for as many years as you wanna side you have to commit to us. Will you give us the option to which they don't wanna do like do. You think the Phillies wouldn't have thought that Jake Arrieta had an opt out after this year? After this last season. Obviously, he didn't take it. Because he didn't really have a great year. Not didn't really have. He didn't have a great year. Show. But if the Phillies had the had the opt-out I wouldn't be shocked. If the Phillies would've taken. They're out. In the contract after the year. He had and do they really want Jake Arrieta at basically twenty million a year for the next two years? I don't think so I think you can find another pitcher and pay in that kind of money that it'll be better than Jake Arrieta. But that's my point is not whether you want to keep or not keep Jake Arrieta. I'm that's not what I'm trying to say what I'm trying to say is the opt-out should be both ways. But the players don't want that. So I have a problem with that. But they'll get one of these players, but I think Scott Boris is playing everybody here. But that doesn't mean that the Phillies won't get Bryce Harper. But he's trying to drum up more interest from around baseball with this little game. If that's who he wanted to sign what they would assign, but they're not gonna sign for weeks. And I knew that was going to happen. And that's a problem in baseball. 'cause it holds teams up in doing other things that they may want to do then we'll talk about the Sixers who were lucky enough to win a game last night they won. And that's. Good that they won that's important that they win. Because they're going to struck as they've struggled on the road. They're not as good a team as they were last year. And you need everyone of Joel Embiid forty two points. He is clearly this star on this team. I don't really think there are any other stars on his team. They have some nice players. But no star. Ben Simmons numbers. Our show. He got an assist last night. We missed the player. He was passing it to and ended up in somebody else's hand who got a lap that wasn't an assessed. He missed the past player. He was back when they really counted assess and accounted improperly that would not have been an assessed. Remember that play was in the late late third or somewhere early in the fourth quarter somewhere during in the first half of the fourth quarter. It was it was his numbers are shallow without Joel Embiid. And he's the star of the team. And it's quiet. I'm not saying anything people don't know without him. They are a are really nothing. They don't play defense. They gave up sixteen nine. They gave up a big lead in the fourth quarter. They gave up sixty nine points in the second half, not counting the overtime. Sixty nine points in the third and fourth quarter. No walk away from the game. And don't feel good and they should feel good because they won the game. They should feel good. But you can't feel good with the way with the way you gave up a lead. Again. They just can't play defense. I don't know what. I don't care how many blocked shots they have. They just I don't know why they can't play defense. But if you look at and again, Joel Embiid is the only star Radic is a good player you need Radic because you can shoot. But I don't know that anybody else on that team can really shoot. And Markelle false. That nonsense. It happened this week. Whereas trainer city was still hurt than Brett Brown said. He wasn't hurt. And Markelle Foltz said he wasn't hurt. And he's not on Twitter. He doesn't go on social media. So he didn't see the tweet by his personal trainer. Well, east tweeted thirty one times in three weeks, whether it's retweets or not he's on social media. So he reads if he's re tweeting he reads, what's on, Twitter, what's on social media. So that was a lie. You can't lie. It just say, hey, listen. We talked about that missing. Maybe he misinterpreted what I said. But I'm fine. But the trainers trying to build up who he is to try to get more clients because he's in a dispute with Kouzmanis a personal trainer all these guys would personal trainers. Most ridiculous thing in the world. And Ben Simmons has a personal shooting coach, which is brother. I got a statistic on Ben Simmons that will absolutely blow you away. He's a good player. But he's not a great player. And people got a little carried away. I it's. I got actually two very good statistics. On Ben Simmons. But we'll we'll get into that. We'll get a lot of things. So I let me give you the numbers. Eight eight eight seven two nine nine four nine four. We've got a lot talk about eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four one year wireless phone actually, your cell phone..

"If you're the eagles your horrible in the red zone on third down your the worst team in football. You've only converted four third downs all season and you start slow. I mean last year the eagles scored one hundred seven points in the first quarter this year. They've only scored twenty one. I mean, they've got to play from infront. That's how they play the best defense when they play from in front, but I really like Philly here. I think this cowboy team is trending really in the wrong direction with or without Amari Cooper. I think their defense hasn't played as well as I'd hoped they would Sean lease out again with the hamstring. I made it so. Some point. You just got to say, hey, look door ability is more important than ability and you talk about durability. Is there any concern? I mean the eagles they had their bye week. And they thought that maybe they'd be able to get some guys back. Jalen mills cornerback still out. Sidney Jones will still be on this game. Darren sproles reactivated his hamstring yet lane Johnson deal with the CL's brain. So you got a bunch of guys there with the eagles that are gonna be out. But as we saw last year, I it's next man up with that team. And it seems like no matter who's out there. They could they still kind of say play the longest Carson Wentz shows up. It seems like that offense can keep keep going and keep flowing. No matter who who who suits up. Yeah. No doubt. I mean, look Dallas's twenty-ninth on third down on defense on their defense. So they can't stop you on third down the eagles. A really good on third down. The you know, the the Cowboys passing defense on second down is one of the worst in the league their thirtieth overall. So once is going to throw the ball on second down they're going to play Canadian football. And then they're really bad in two minute. You know, their offense can't more. They haven't scored all season in the NFL in two minute drill. And then here's the stat that really. Jumped out to me in two thousand and sixteen. Dallas was the eighth best team in converting third third and four to six they were the eighth best team. That's why they control the ball so much in two thousand sixteen. That's why they won so many games. They had all those third and what people like to call manageable, and they converted on this show, the twenty ninth and the NFL because the eagle because the Cowboys haven't changed their scheme. They're still trying to run the pivot routes with Beasley and still do the crosses and people know what they're doing. I just think it's going to be really challenging for them to play on the road and win. They're not a good road team. They got shellac last week. I mean, Tennessee beat them Tennessee did in fact beat them. And I think it's going to be a hard game for the for the Cowboys. I like the eagles here. Yep. So we'll keep an eye on the bird The the way. way. That my man the Clapper the that CRA Halloween customers over a million views, you know, can you believe her the guy's incredible. I I watched videos of our grandchildren constantly, you know, both of them. You know, they send videos to me I, but I I got emit other than my grad. Should I watched that video part more than anywhere? Larry watching it too. I don't know if it was a Halloween thing that that to go him. But he should just dress up like that at every game and just show up. Remember the guy that used to dress up like Andy Reid the eagles games back in the day. We need this guy to do this for Garrett just following around. Because I mean the team may confuse them for Jason geared at this point. Because he does he acts the part perfectly. It's almost too good to pass up. Let's get to the next game. We got the Los Angeles chargers. Philip rivers. He loves playing the Oakland Raiders always always plays well against their traveling up to Oakland. They're favored in this game by ten points. I is that too big of a spread. Or is this another game where Phil rivers can dominate against these guys. I think look I think Philip rivers can dominate. I mean, the only thing holding me back. Mike badgley? The..

"Some other eagles news, some some house cleaning here, Dextra, McDougal, the liability is out. He has been cut goodbye and crayon Lovelock crave. On LeBlanc cornerback is now in so the experiment to replace. Sidney Jones is still ongoing LeBlanc is kicked around with a few teams. I found one fantastic play of his pick six of Matthew Stafford back in two thousand sixteen ignore all the rest ignored golden Tate. Putting in work on them for the rest of that game. But yeah, Bill G does. This mean, anything it's probably not a great sign for Sydney. Joe? Owns considering even also brought devante Busby. Back to the practice squad. And you're adding a slot guides to the practice squad. Now, you're claiming this guy off waivers. So I would assume that Sidney Jones is not really go into becoming back this week in and who knows in the next couple of weeks. Here sounds like he could be missing some time. If the eagles are making these changes here. So I would guess the Bank is disconnect be the new nickel Horner because that's what they had Dexter McDougal doing coming off the street the bunk rated higher overall on their pro personnel board. It's not like he was out on the market. Like, you know, he was with the lions and they cut him. So now he's available and he wasn't available. When the eagles, I signed germ do mostly, you know, they they clearly think he's better than McDougal, and how much better I mean, it just doesn't seem realistic that you're gonna plug him into the nickel. All of a sudden he's going to be like, leaps and bounds better than the other guy. Are you? How are you going to be worse than Dextra McDougal? Yeah. I mean hard to be worse at the same time. Like, I don't know how much of a you know, a curve. There's gonna learning curve. There do go at least had some knowledge of his teammates when it comes to communicating in the scheme in different things like that. But worth a shot. I mean, I'm not going to be. I'm not upset they cut McDougal. It's worth taking a look. But I just don't sound like you can expect him to come in here in a be this shutdown guy. I mean, he like you said that pick six there's some other intriguing plays from his career. I think he actually had a good game relatively against the eagles last year when they made the bears targeted eight times per per fo pro football, focus, any only alot focuses its tongue twister. And he allowed him five catches for thirty five yards. Overall. Seems like a good day. Yeah. Worth a look. I'm not gonna I love the name. That's most importantly, I mean, he has a great name so fantastic name as a starting nickel corner. Damn. Yeah. But yeah, I I agree. It probably says more about Cindy Jones in his availabil- availability or non availability right now. Which is a shame because we could really use him back and get some stability in that defensive backfield. Which has got to be hard for Jim Schwartz to deal with week-to-week disguise coming in and out in us. Underrated aspect of some of the failures in the defense at critical times probably have a lot to do with that again, not giving Tim Schwarz big pass. But there are things that he is dealing with that have not been exactly ideal in that situation. So I think we'll move on from the eagles news because I want to touch on something that's obviously related to the eagles. That's individuals the Washington Redskins. They drop a big one to the Atlanta Falcons thirty eight to fourteen the the worst news about this is not that it keeps the eagles while for the Redskins. Anyway, this is fantastic news for us. The worst news for them is not that. It keeps the eagles within one game but their losses. Go beyond just the score. So they lose both of their guards. Brandon sheriff with with a torn pack. Sean Lavalle with a torn easy L. And then they're wide receiver Paul Richardson who was leading wide receiver. That's not a tight end. 'cause Jordan Reed leads them in yards. But Paul Richardson. Has an AC joint issue in his shoulder and has decided to get surgery. So he is done for the season that death on that offensive line..

But it was just a matter of too many guys coming from the eagles left side. Greg injury very small moment from the game on Thursday night. Don't even know how many fans noticed it because it was a great night. The eagles crushed the New York. Giants by three touchdowns joy was restored. And you know, yesterday, my whole theme was I was still basking in the glow of their the victory. Right. Didn't you? I know that today. I'm a little more sober. Okay. Good morning, everybody. It is a Saturday morning in the Delaware. It's a brisk chilly Saturday morning. Football weather from Zely ShopRite. Williamstown New Jersey our favorite Sunday Saturday Sunday excuse me from alley ShopRite. Williamstown New Jersey our favorite Sunday haunt radio. Drew Glenn MAC now, by the way during our show. They have the rain Glenn Sunday brunch. Where you can get eggs, and bacon and sausage. And all that good stuff at a very good price. We invite you to do. So. Anyway, I it's a day later, and I'm looking a little more big picture at what happened in the giants game. And kind of where the eagles stand right now. By the way, the show goes on we're going to raise all kinds of things including college football results yesterday, including little flyers a little six or six to start their season. Some baseball Ray been watching a lot of baseball not a minute. This concerns me. And we'll talk about that later. You're a beer seem head. You've watched none of it zero. Yeah. We'll talk about that. But I do I do wanna open up with the eagles, by the way. We'll go over other games in the NFL as well. So they win and a win convincingly and unite talk yesterday all the things that went, right? They scored early. Didn't get a lotta dump penalties Wentz. Look good. Turn the ball over turn the ball over all those things that we needed to check off. We were able to check off at least for one week, right? But here's my concern. My concern is really injuries, and how that impacts the big picture Jason Peters as you heard on that play Maryland, Mike ended up tearing his biceps. They think he can play. Have you ever known a guy to play with a torn bicep? Yes. Yeah. It's a it's. More often a torn bicep business season ender, but I've known. There've instances of guys who can play with it. I actually thought that Dr Pollard described it pretty well yesterday in that if the tear is down in the lower part of your bicep down by your elbow. That's generally, the one that requires surgery if it's higher up near your shoulder. There's more support and more muscle up there. So you can't tape it and play with it. But obviously, it's not optimal. And I I just don't know that he can come back and play right away. I think it is even if even if it is there, and I think he can play with it. I don't know that he can play next Sunday. Okay. We've also got lane Johnson who got it out, by the way. Both these guys tremendous credit. They got it out lane. Johnson was Jinping around all week on a high ankle sprain. Test it out before the game very ginger decided to play played pretty well. Ended up coming out toward the end. Although I think that might have been they just had the game in hand. And he was Olympic Dernie Amy saw. Yeah. I mean, he was playing out during the snap. But if you saw him like walking to the line or walking back after a play you could saw he was favoring it, and he was hurting the whole game. No question. Right. And I I actually I actually thought they should've taken him out a little earlier to be honest. I thought that they took a little bit of a chance leaving about there as long as they did. But, you know credits. Both those guys were just even trying to give it a go. Right. And he's got an extra couple of days to recover before they play Carolina. But that's stuff doesn't just go away fast. You know, that's gonna be bothering them for a little bit. A high ankle sprains. Sometimes they linger guys playing with them all season. I and I don't wanna be Debbie Downer today. I just kind of want to lay this out before we look at the big picture. We know they have injuries at running back is loss for the season. Sproles? I never know. The coach keeps saying it's week to week which for him means he's not playing. So it's Doug's prerogative. But Doug doesn't give you a whole lot on the injuries. No, no. Mandy would never, you know, they know coaches very forthcoming about stuff. I I really do think I really do think they expect sprawls back. I mean, he's around you see him around the practice field days. It's not like, Tim Jernigan. Who's like missing missing totally another name. I'm getting to write sprawls around. But. He's. As we it's it's very much a week to week thing. I mean, it definitely. But I think they do expect them back. Okay. So you got that. I'm sorry. Just build your soda. That's okay. We'll be okay. You got real injuries that safety. There was there is now concern, and it looks like you may be missing Jones for couple of weeks at cornerback Sidney Jones right looks like he's out and the and they're kind of thin there. Ray how worried should we be here about this? I I don't know what I left that. I say wide receiver. No, you didn't get lost. Mike Wallis thin there. It was a great win against the giants. Collins would you know MAC, and we don't even know where he is. Right. So what I mean, it is a lot. And I'm concerned about it. I mean last year the team had a lot of injuries to key players and rebelled overcome it. And I mean that's part of the narrative of last season is what they overcame to win a Super Bowl, which was great. But you can't do it every year, and you can't survive it every year. And right now, I think they're they're really at a critical juncture in terms of where they are at three and three with some of the players that they've got that they've lost at some of the players that are key players that are going to now try and play through injury. Yeah. I mean, that's that's a real concern. I mean to me at three and three I think, you're still okay. Especially in this division, which we've talked about eminently winnable, but my greater concern, the overriding concern is the physical health of the team right now because they're they're pretty beat up. Yeah. And I think a lot of people you kind of touched on this. You look at last year and say, hey, next man up and they want it without Jason Peters without Darren sproles. Without Carson Wentz and Hicks without the middle linebacker, Jordan Hicks, and you guys just kept going down. And they just kept winning. I don't know that fans think like, oh, that's that's gonna happen. Every year. You know? You can't say everything went right last year. Because it didn't it certainly did they overcame all that Kennedy. Do it again. How do you? How do you look at this and say, well, they're going to be okay? Because I wish I could I. I'm really did this this thing really does concern me, especially with Peter's at his age. I mean, Kenny Kenny play through it. He's gonna try Kenny play through it successfully. Can he hold up his end at left tackle? I don't know. You know, and I've seen guys with high ankle sprains, which lane John's dealing with now it hampers them for an entire season. And okay, even though they're out there. They're not the same player. And if you're talking about both of those positions if you're talking about the to tackle positions. If you're going to be playing with two guys who are really good players but playing at seventy percent or less. Yeah. That's a problem. So that's that's to me is a real worry. I mean, you're thin in the backfield Clement came back and is a good player and played well the other night, but he's been hurt. Already. Can you count on him every week the rest of the way, I don't know? You know, they're expecting to get sprawls back at some point. But I can't tell you when that's going to be and right now, you're thin at receiver and. You know there right now at that critical point that okay, maybe they can cut it out with what they have. But they lose one more player or two more players in the season. It remains. I don't know that you can overcome that two years in a row, if you're Howie Roseman. Now, you made that move last week to restructure Fletcher Cox's contract, you got a lot more you had nothing under the salary cap. Now, I think they have nine million dollars. They've got a good amount under the cap, right? They can make a deal they could you looking to do it. Spend some future resources, the money's just the money the money doesn't matter. But you know, you're going to give up a draft pick depending on what you get. Yeah. You can look for the let me just preface. What would you look for a short term rental and in eight, you know, we know the name levian bell was a short term rental. Okay. Or would you look for a guy like you? Hope Degi would be that you trade for you. Hope you get a couple of years out of them. Or would you stand pack. I think they're exploring it. I think they're looking at what's out there. But the feeling that I get is if they were if they were to bring somebody in it would be I would not be a big blockbuster kind of acquisition, which I which I would consider Belda bay. I mean, I would consider bell to be a big acquisition. I would consider McCoy to be a big acquisition. I would consider a rec- certain receivers to be that kind of thing. I don't think it would be that. I think it'll be sort of more of a mid level kind of just get you through the crisis kind of thing as opposed to a guy that could be a building block for the future beyond that. I think it would just be more. I don't want to use the term stopgap because that's to minimizing it. But somebody who can just kinda help you through the crisis. You're looking for a guy. Yeah. I don't think anybody thinks that there's going to be a big name walking through the door here in the next two weeks. I I really don't foresee that I think it's going to be more like they do bring somebody in. I think it's going to be somebody. That's more of a role player kinda guy that they know that they feel like can just kind of get them through the season. But isn't going to be like a big time. Headline know top of the hour leading the KYW news kind of thing acquisition. I don't see it being that. I just got to sleep w new. I just kind of see it being a guy to kind of get you through the crisis right now. Okay. Well, speaking of which Jason lockenfora for the NFL network writes today that the Arizona Cardinals who have come out and fallen on their face. They're really bad team, and they're rebuilding young quarterback, etc. What are they gonna do says that they now have put a couple players on the market one of whom is all pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. If you want to go after a quarterback, I know now that Sidney Jones is hurt mills playing. So so Darby is not had a great season. And the other is safety. I guess slash linebacker position. When you say, Diene Buchanan. He's he's been a linebacker for them. But he he he he can play in the on the back end would you pursue either of those would that interest you if you're Howie Roseman boy, well, you're going to have to part with a lot to get Peterson. I think I think they would they would probably and and the eagles would probably ask for a one an eagles aren't going to give up that one for another cornerback. But let's okay. So let's say you don't do that. Because you already do have a lot of resources in cornerback. I get that and Sydney Jones is injured, but he will be back at some point. Right..

"So I feel better about the communication in our defensive secondary to be able to communicate before the snap say, okay, let's go banjo here. You know, have a discussion between the two players. Suss it out, work it out at, you know, going execute it. So I feel much better about that on our in. I also feel better about our coverage linebackers even abroad did look rusty last week. Awesome. Snaps to some some big dime, snaps and some Joe Jordan hick stuff to be able to stick with nine Hines a little bit better than guys like Ryan Anderson and believe it was Preston Brown for the Bengals that got behind on angle route. I feel better about our linebackers in coverage there. That's okay for manual. Look at this depth chart. Like you mentioned, you know, TY Hilton's probably gonna get a lot of covers from Ronald Darby when he's not. Working in the slot and what I would love to see this. I t y plays. I really do. I'd never liked winning games on injuries and everyone guys injured. That's not like that's not my style, but y Hilton, put him in the slot against Sidney Jones. And let's see what Sidney Jones has to work with because so far. Hey, matt. Let's talk about this. Yes. Oh, Sidney Jones so far, and I'm pulling up his coverage stats here. People said like, everything's been so quiet with Sydney will. That's that's a fantastic thing. He hasn't had to make any place because he's had the coverage in win. The ball has come his way. He's been very, very effective. He's only been targeted seven times and I think he's only given up there. It is four receptions eighteen yards with sixty two point two quarterback rating and the film matches the analytics on that one baby because he has been playing absolutely lights out. The question ban is, let's say that TY starts up a little bit over Jalen mills in Jalen. Mill starts to get toasted. You know, the fans are already clamoring for it with housing Jones is playing and how Jalen mills has struggled in, you know, Jalen mills, volatile guy. He can get on these lumps, but then he can get real hot like he did last year in the playoffs. And other times during the year, if Sidney Jones continues the ball out, when we started having the discussion about should remove Sydney outside. No, exactly. I feel the same way. Perfect. Let's said. Like this is this is the tricky thing because I, I don't mean to condescend. I polished come off the way it is not my intention, but right now we're having a very difficult time with eagles fans because we're simultaneously saying, listen, Maj. Mak can go play in the slot and Nelson agley compla- on the outside. And that's really not that difficult. Not that many things are changing. It's fine. It's not gonna, throw Nelson aggravate off a owned. Listen, you city Johnson, the outside out of the nickel is going to be somebody different things. Right. That sounds so inherently contradictory. You know, probably as always the truth is somewhere in the middle, a greatly struggle with the idea of putting Sidney Jones on the outside, whereas he's so used to playing in a underneath zone. And now he's playing in a deep zome taking Jalen mills was always been deep zones, putting him in underneath zones, obviously, man coverage law pretty much the same. But when you're talking about your zone coverage and even then meant coverage is not the same, but it's much more similar than zone coverage. When you're talking about his own coverage, your is in different spots. You're the quickness with. Would you react? Is indifferent sponsor, responsibility against the run is a different spots. And finally, it's very difficult to prove to me right now that outside corners, more valuable slot corner, right? At least measurably distinctly to the point where you need to make a switch like that now. All right. A team comes out in base, Mike become out in in in four down linemen three linebackers which eagles rarely if ever do should mills beyond the outsider, should Sydney be on the outside..
