'The Football Scientist' called in to preview this weekends Divisional games in the NFL playoffs and to also talk about the Eagles interviewing Brian Kelly. Joyner says unlike Chip Kelly, Brian Kelly would come into the NFL without a specific system and would be able to operate with the current Eagles personnel. On this weekends games, Joyner likes the Seahawks/Falcons matchup and loves the Julio Jones/Roddy White tandem. Follow Joyner on Twitter.

Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette called in to talk about the NHL finally being back on the ice after a long lockout. Laviolette said that they haven't named a captain yet as they haven't even been on the ice as a team or had any formal meetings. Laviolette also said that he knows how to coach a shortened season not from a lockout standpoint, but from coming in as a replacement head coach with 38 games left in a season.

Sheil Kapadia, Philly Mag, called in to talk about the Eagles head coaching search. Kapadia talked about the Eagles interviewing Brian Kelly and also speculated that there could be another hidden name out there as we didnt find out about Brian Kelly or Bill O'Brien until after the fact. Kapadia also doesn't understand why Jon Gruden isnt getting more attention because many NFL people believe he is the right choice for the job. Follow Kapadia on Twitter.
