Pod: The Wentz Wagon Wrecks; The Eagles Get Set for the Playoffs

Hello darkness, his old friend.

The NFL regular season has ended, and it’s time for the real games to begin…so of course the guys are talking about the abject failure of Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts and the self-immolation of the New York Football Giants. Don’t worry; they eventually get around to the Eagles.

The rundown:

• Joe doesn’t even pretend to care about anything else, diving right into the Colts/Wentz schadenfreude

• The guys welcome a guest for “What Are You Drinking?” (3:35)

• The Philly Frenetics Indiana Correspondent calls in to report on how the locals are reacting to the Colts’ stunning defeat to the Jaguars that cost them a playoff spot and improved the draft pick coming back to the Eagles (4:09)

• The Giants embarrassed themselves as well, so the guys take a small measure of glee from that before lamenting the fall of the NFC East (16:41)

• While recording during the early part of the Raiders-Chargers circus, Joe foresees some of the craziness that would unfold before John talks about the general feeling on Ben Roethlisberger (27:46)

• The guys finally get around to the local team, chatting about the mostly meaningless Eagles-Cowboys game; did the Eagles handle it correctly? Did the Cowboys? (29:25)

• The increasingly contentious Quick Picks get a cursory mention before the much more objective – but less competitive – Wins Pool results are addressed (38:30)

• Finally, the Eagles are headed to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers and quarterback Tom Brady, of whom you may have heard; do the Birds have a chance? (42:04)

Joe Girardi is Fired; The Phillies Catch Fire The Philly Frenetics Podcast

Anything happen while we were gone? The guys return after a brief hiatus to discuss John's new digs and Joe's attendance at three notable baseball games in the span of four days before getting into the topic of the day: should the Phillies have fired Joe Girardi? (11:37)  And since they did, was it at the right time, and will it matter at all? (22:19)  Joe then shares his thoughts on what the team should be looking for in a new manager while John is, suffice to say, significantly less picky (31:15).
