Sixers Excitement Rising After Eagles Dismal Season Ends
As the Eagles 2020 season has reached it's conclusion, the Philadelphia 76ers have taken over the spotlight and Philly Sports fans need something positive to see from their local teams after the Eagles controversial finish on Sunday Night against the Washington Football Team. The Eagles appeared not to put their best effort forward in what was a meaningless game to finish the season. Many are accusing the Eagles of “Tanking” or not trying to win in Week 17, a concept the Sixers and their fans know all too well, the Eagles locked themselves into a top ten pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Head Coach Doug Pederson and the Eagles organization has come under criticism from many outside of Philadelphia for the poor optics of their approach to the final game of their season.
This Saturday in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, Scott McKay and I will look at what's next for the bumbling Birds after their 4-11-1 season. We will also turn our attention to the Philadelphia 76ers as team is off to a hot and exciting start to their season with a 7-2 record.
