Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?!?

The Eagles are going to the playoffs!

The rundown:

• The new year begins with a peculiar weather forecast, news of an upcoming wedding, and a very public divorce

• In what should be seen as an omen yet most likely will not, John fails to properly execute the one task required of the “What Are You Drinking?” segment: opening a drink (7:29)

• The Eagles withstood their most consistent rival this season – their own slow starts – to come from behind against Washington on Sunday and put themselves on the brink of a Wild Card playoff berth; the guys talk about the game and those slow starts (9:20) before moving on to a discussion of Jalen Hurts’ future as the Eagles starting quarterback (21:50)

• The de facto Twitter Feud of the Week is “The Wentz Wagon vs. John” (29:58), and FedEx Field has some structural issues (31:42)

• It was a big Twitter week for John, as he discovered an obscure player in an obscure league that would surely be a hit if he was signed by one of our local teams (38:03)

• Baseball Hall of Fame voting is closed; the guys discuss the status of the ballot’s most controversial players, and the likelihood of some former Phillies making their way to Cooperstown in the next decade (42:08)

• The next set of inductees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame will be announced soon as well; the guys discuss the likely next Philadelphia athlete to be enshrined in his sport’s respective Hall of Fame and learn an interesting tidbit about Chris Pronger along the way (50:26)

• Finally, the guys mourn the loss of the legendary John Madden, whose impact as a coach, broadcaster, and face of a video game franchise touched the game of football for five decades, and will live on for many more (55:40)
