Wednesday Sportsbash: Phillies Pushing for Playoffs, Andy Reid Still to Blame for Eagles Struggles

Did you miss the Sports Bash or do you just want to listen to it again?

The Sports Bash ON DEMAND gives you the chance to go back and hear what you missed.  Its the Sports Bash with Mike Gill and Todd Ranck.

 

Here is today’s show: Wednesday September 12th, 2012.

 

Phillies back to .500

With the Phillies winning  streak now at 6, the team has reached a .500 record of 71-71. They’ve won 10 of their last 12 games going in to Wednesday’s afternoon against the Miami Marlins and are now just four games back of the second wildcard. The remaining schedule for the team is favorable with four games against Houston and three more against Miami. Mike and Todd both think the Phillies have a very, very strong chance to make the second wildcard.

Sheil Kapadia

Sheil Kapadia, Phillymag.com, called in for his weekly spot to recap what he saw against the Browns in week one and to preview what he thinks the Eagles chances are in the Baltimore Ravens home opener. Kapadia watched the Browns tape and some of it looked even uglier a second time! Kapadia thinks the Eagles need to give Shady McCoy the ball more…who doesn’t? But it’s important to keep his confidence level at a high level.

Is Mike Vick declining?

Mike Gill read over an article from CBS Sports that suggests Eagles QB Mike Vick is a declining QB. Mike Gill thinks that we have “too high” expectations of Vick and he’s not your prototypical QB. Mike also says that the reason why Vick is labeled as “injury prone” is because he is asked to throw the ball so many times, i.e. 56 times on Sunday.

Our Eagles Insider Ryan Messick

Had our Eagles Insider Ryan Messick on for a segment here. Messick says Vick made too many wrong decisions on Sunday, whether it was rolling out when he shouldn’t, or sticking in pocket when he shouldn’t. Mike Gill still puts it on Andy Reid.
