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)

• The guys share some memorable baseball fan experiences (53:25)

Is Aaron Nola an Ace? The Boo Birds Podcast

This week, the guys do their first combined "What Are You Drinking?" taste test, where Joe surprises John with a can of PBR Hard Coffee (5:27). After getting through that, John kicks off a discussion about the Sixers (13:01) before Joe explains the European Super League proposal (that fell apart before the episode even dropped) and why it was so widely loathed (23:52).  Then, John airs a grievance after three decades (39:57) before the guys talk about the Aaron Nola conversation (46:25) and the black hole that is center field at Citizens Bank Park (58:08).
