Leonard Weaver

Called up Leonard Weaver, CSN Philly, to get his latest thoughts on the Eagles 6 game losing streak. Weaver said that Vick has taken way too much criticism for his play now that we’ve seen Nick Foles be inserted and struggle. Weaver also said he wants to see more intensity and focus from the players because being a former player, it’s been frustrating to watch these games because he knows what Andy Reid is trying to get across.

Marc Jackson

Sixers analyst for CSN Philly called in to talk about the Sixers win last night and how the team is looking thus far without Andrew Bynum. Jackson said Collins is trying to get wins anyway that he can, and let them keep shooting. On Bynum: Jackson believes it should be the same time frame for him, but once he gets back on the court it will take weeks to get back in game shape. Follow Jackson on Twitter.
