As Philadelphia prepares for another round of coronavirus-related restrictions, the guys talk about the Eagles’ brain lockdown from Sunday afternoon. In this episode:

• John opens with a story that he calls a “near-death experience” and Joe simply sees as content

• John Reads The News™ (5:59)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (7:43)

• The guys begrudgingly get into a brief discussion about the Eagles’ low-energy loss to the Giants (8:00) during which John laments the abandonment of the running game for probably the third or fourth time this season and Joe rips Doug Pederson for his two-point conversion thinking for something like the eighth or ninth time this season (while actually being right for once)

• A brief Quick Picks review (21:31)

• James Harden, 76er????? (23:49)

• Joe manages to squeeze in a mention of The Masters and John patiently humors him (35:17)

A Chat with Dave Shaw, aka @UKPhillies The Boo Birds Podcast
