January 11, 2021: Eagles Season Wrap-Up with Roy Burton of Birds Outsiders

NBC Sports, “Howie Roseman Watching Howie Roseman Watching.” 2021, The Louvre, Paris.

This week, it’s a “pre-mergency” pod discussing the Eagles’ season in advance of the reported second meeting between Jeffrey Lurie and Doug Pederson early this week. Since misery loves company, Roy Burton (@TheBSLine) of NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Birds Outsiders called in to share what he was drinking and then was kind enough to stick around and talk about what went wrong and where the team goes from here.

The rundown:

• John Reads The News™ and then manages to keep Joe from going off on a lengthy rant about how the NBA is handling its recent rash of COVID-19 situations (2:29)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (4:47)

• Roy Burton joins the guys to break down how the Eagles’ 2020 season went so poorly, including a lack of talent on the roster, poor coaching, poor quarterback play, and, as if that wasn’t enough, poor offensive line play (5:32)

• The next steps for the franchise in the front office and on the sideline, the quarterback position, and the draft; plus, if hearing about Nnamdi Asomugha a couple weeks ago had you shook, be warned because Chip Kelly makes an appearance (27:46)

Our thanks to Roy for joining us this week; be sure to follow him on Twitter at @TheBSLine and check out his Philadelphia food podcast @JawnAppetit as well.

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).
