The Boo Birds’ one-week streak of victory podcasts has ended. On this week’s jam-packed show:

• John Reads the News (1:30)

• What Are You Drinking? (5:06)

• The guys discuss the letdown of Sunday’s Eagles loss in Pittsburgh (5:28): good things and bad things, the team’s outlook going forward, and a review of the Week 5 Quick Picks

• Joe explains that the Union are very good (25:53)

• the validity of the NFL season is discussed in light of the large number of COVID-19-related schedule alterations (30:25)

• Joe takes a college football coach to task for his comments about having fans in stadiums (37:53)

• the most surprising teams in the NFL, positively and negatively, through the first five weeks of the season (39:58)

• the NBA Finals come up… (43:30)

• …which inevitably leads to Joe’s third rant in less than 16 minutes (46:08), this time starring Jimmy Butler and the Sixers, with cameos from J.T. Realmuto (?), Twitter smart alecks (??), and Chip Kelly (?!?)

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).
