So the other night, Bob was listening to 97.5 the Fanatic and mentioned what he thought was a Mount Rushmore-worthy phone call:
Caller into 97.5 just now:
“Go Birds! Dallas sucks!”
Then called Nick Sirianni a pathetic worm before proposing a Deshaun Watson trade for Jalen Hurts, DeVonta Smith, and a 1st.
Finished by predicting a 27-20 Eagles win.
A Mount Rushmore call. @Kevin_Kinkead

This took place during the Fanatic’s pregame show, so it’s a few days old now, but going back and finding it, it’s still worth a listen. It delivers.
Here it is, for your pleasure:
“Uh hey guys, go Birds! Dallas sucks. Heh. Alright, I’m on my way to the game right now. Uh, I’m really down right now because Nick Sirianni is a pathetic worm. He’s a pathetic worm… He needs to make a big baller move to get the Eagles back in this. Now listen to me here; look, name the last two teams that won the Super Bowl. It was the Chiefs and Buccaneers, and what did they do? They picked up rejected players Kareem Hunt and Antonio Brown, and that is what needs to happen. They need to get Deshaun Watson on this team right now for a trade with Jalen Hurts, DeVonta Smith, and a first round pick. Don’t @ me.”
“If you pick up rejected players in the past, you win Super Bowls. Tell me that doesn’t show.”
And then he caps it off by predicting the Eagles to win because “Tom Brady is a worthless human being.” A great phone call. The head coach sucks, the Cowboys suck, and the Birds need to trade for a guy facing myriad allegations of sexual misconduct who can’t even play right now.
EDIT – I forgot to mention that Kareem Hunt wasn’t even on the Chiefs’ Super Bowl team.
