Eagles Fans Have Low Playoff Expectations For This Team
The wheels fell off the Eagles train in week thirteen after going 10-1 when they were blown out and humiliated by the 49ers 42-19 in front of their homefield fans in Philadelphia. Losing four of their next five games and with several injuries, the Eagles fans are less than enthusiastic heading into their Wildcard Monday Night Playoff matchup in Tampa Bay against the Buccaneers.
The Eagles beat the Bucs in week three at Tampa, a well-rounded 25-11 victory on Monday Night Football. D’Andre Swift gashed the Bucs for 130 yards on the ground and A.J. Brown had 131 yards through the air. All that is in the past because the Bucs won five of their last six games and their Quarterback Baker Mayfield has played well down the stretch. We will have plenty to talk about with the Birds this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim.
On Saturday we have a loaded show. Former Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Dave Klemic and Producer Nick Earnshaw join me in the studio. We will talk Eagles Playoff Football through out the morning. In Hour One, we will talk with the President of the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association Mike Shute about their annual banquet being held on Wednesday night January 17th at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Cherry Hill.
