Mike and Todd open up Thursday's show talking about the Sixers and their early season struggles. Without Andrew Bynum, this team doesn't have many scoring options other than Jrue Holiday. Bynum isnt due back until December-January and his delay has continued. It's not a fun team to watch, either according to Todd. Mike Gill still believes that even if Bynum doesn't even play a game, it's still a successful trade.
The football scientist from ESPN.com called in for his weekly spot talking about the Eagles/Redskins matchup this Sunday. Joyner isn't too confident about the Eagles winning the game, but Nick Foles could have a strong game in his first start. Follow Joyner on Twitter.

The Schedule Game
I know the Eagles currently sit at 3-6 and are on the outside looking in at the playoffs, but the Eagles are still mathematically alive for the playoff hunt. Mike and Todd go over the Week 11 schedule of games and how they (may) impact the Eagles playoff chances.
Talked about this sloppy start for the Sixers who are at 4-4 after losing to a winless Detroit Pistons team last night. Cooney basically spearheaded the Andrew Bynum status report with a few columns he wrote in the Philadelphia Daily News asking what was the prognosis with Bynum, the next day the Sixers announced Bynum would be out for an extended time. Follow Cooney on Twitter.

Senior NFL writer John Clayton called in to talk about the state of the Eagles and Andy Reid's job security. Clayton says that he could see a scenario that Reid comes back next season, but they'd have to make the playoffs. The more concerning thing is the way the team responded coming out of the bye week, Andy Reid was undefeated coming out of the bye week. Clayton also believes that any college coach coming to Philadelphia would get "gobbled up."
Former Redskins player and current Redskins analyst for ESPN 980 in DC called in to preview the game. The story in DC has the fans and Walker giving no sympathy to the Eagles fans as they've finished in last place 4 out of the last 5 years. Walker said this the game, where the winner can perhaps get on a streak, as some team will in the NFC East.
