Pod: Ben Simmons Wants Out, and an Eagles Season Preview

The rundown:

• John attempts to dig right in on Ben Simmons, but Joe first gives a special shout out to a loyal listener

• A very “old man” edition of “What Are You Drinking?” that is alcohol-free due to being recorded in the afternoon, because, again, old men (13:45)

• In what can only be described as the upset of the year, the guys get nearly 15 minutes into the last episode before the start of the NFL season before mentioning the Eagles; John and Joe discuss what they hope to see out of the team this season (14:45)

• A week-by-week discussion of the schedule leads to something of a consensus on what the Eagles’ record might be (27:24) before the guys talk about potential breakout stars for 2021 (44:44)

• Finally, the second annual Philly Frenetics NFL Wins Pool draft is conducted; defending champion John and defending non-champion Joe each selected four teams, with total wins at the end of the season deciding the winner (47:07)
