This week, the guys begrudgingly discuss the Eagles’ terrible season opener, and the Phillies’ offer to hold their collective beers. The rundown:

• John Reads the News (1:55)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (4:25)

• The Eagles start hot, then go all Icarus on everyone (5:16)

• Carson Wentz’s future with the Eagles (11:41)

• Could the Eagles make massive changes during or after the season? (21:19)

• A recap of last week’s Quick Picks, an incredibly brief look at next week’s game that’s really more of a discussion of the Rams’ new five billion – with a B – dollar stadium, and a quick trip around Week 1 of the NFL season (26:11)

• Not to be outdone, the Phillies have some injuries of their own (33:50)

• Why Sixto Sanchez’s performance should have no bearing on re-signing J.T. Realmuto (46:38)

Pederson and Harden Out; Scott Rolen into the Hall of Fame? The Boo Birds Podcast

On this week's episode of The Boo Birds Podcast, the guys discuss the end of the Doug Pederson era in Philadelphia, the direction of the Eagles organization, and who the next coach might be (4:19) before discussing the James Harden trade that wasn't (22:20) – they're fine with it – and the Flyers' start to the season (34:36).  Finally, John pleads his case for why Scott Rolen should be in the Baseball Hall  of Fame, which is then discussed in both broad strokes and great detail at the same time; there’s something there for both purists and stat heads alike (38:29).
