The Eagles have played their way out of a playoff spot and into a quarterback controversy, as Jalen Hurts (finally?) replaced Carson Wentz during Sunday’s game. Meanwhile, on the other side of Pattison Avenue, the Phillies are rumored to be listening to offers for Zack Wheeler. You know, the frontline starter they signed a year ago to a not-unfriendly contract? Yeah, that guy. It’s that kind of episode.
On this week’s pod:
• Joe rats John out for ticking his mom off before John briefly discusses his latest non-Boo Birds creative venture, a mini-documentary about local band called The Tisburys
• John Reads the News™ (3:06)
• What Are You Drinking?™ (5:06)
• “Why Are You Drinking?” which is the working title of both the Eagles’ 2020 Video Yearbook and just about every Boo Birds Podcast segment about the team of late; the guys talk about Jalen Hurts (6:24), the last time an Eagles franchise quarterback was benched mid-game (11:17), if the 2020 season can be salvaged, and what that even means (12:30), and, of course, Carson Wentz (16:51), Doug Pederson, and Howie Roseman (24:25)
