Chris Long and Lane Johnson Recall Underdog Mask Idea: “It Sounded F****** Stupid”

Kevin Kinkead - January 24, 2020

Great podcast with Lane Johnson appearing on Chris Long’s show, more than an hour of just free-flowing conversation.

One of the funnier moments is when the pair are talking about the genesis of the 2017 playoff “underdog” masks, which starts around 55:52 of the Youtube clip below:

New Orleans Saints Accused of Helping Catholic Church With Sex Abuse Damage Control

Kevin Kinkead - January 24, 2020

Kind of a strange and random story via The Associated Press this morning.

The New Orleans Saints, who delivered us “Bounty Gate” and complained their way to a pass interference rule change that actually didn’t really change anything, are headed to court “to keep the public from seeing hundreds of emails that allegedly show team executives doing public relations damage control for the area’s Roman Catholic archdiocese to help it contain the fallout from a burgeoning sexual abuse crisis.”

That’s a mouthful, and it’s what the AP writes in a story that continues like this:

Report: Matt Burke to Become Eagles Defensive Line Coach

Kevin Kinkead - January 24, 2020

Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher do a great podcast on 97.3 ESPN called “Inside the Birds.”

Caplan is down at the Senior Bowl right now, and therefore is sniffing around a bit. On the latest edition of the podcast, posted Thursday, he reports that the Eagles have decided on who their new defensive line coach and assistant d-line coach will be.

Caplan:

Eli Manning is Retiring

Kevin Kinkead - January 23, 2020

Which image will you remember Eli Manning by?

Will it be ‘Eli face,’ on the left? Or will it be the two-time Super Bowl champion pictured on the right?

Eagles fans would probably go with the former, since Eli was a division rival who didn’t play very well against the Birds for whatever reason, despite ripping off two postseason runs that resulted in Super Bowl triumphs over the Patriots. He’ll finish his career with a 10-23 record against Philadelphia but went 8-4 in the playoffs, which included a pair of 4-0 title runs where he threw 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions.

Eli will make his retirement official at a press conference tomorrow, and here’s what owner John Mara had to say:

Josh McCown and the Crossing Broad Mystery Source

Kevin Kinkead - January 23, 2020

Sniff sniff.

Somebody is sniffing around at NovaCare. I don’t know who it is, though. We’ve got a mystery source who contacts Crossing Broad and offers up tidbits about the Philadelphia Eagles, tidbits that have turned out to be 100% accurate.

I don’t know who this person is, or how to contact them, but occasionally we’ll get messages telling us that a player was released or signed, or that somebody ended up on another team. To date, the CB mystery source is four for four with their tips, correctly telling us about the Jordan Matthews signing and then release, the Mack Hollins departure, and Jalen Ramsey’s trade to Los Angeles.

Recently, the source contacted us again with this:

94 WIP is Doing an “Andy Reid Appreciation Day”

Kevin Kinkead - January 23, 2020

In this story, I will tell you how to feel about Andy Reid.

Just kidding.

You can feel however you’d like to feel about Big Red. We only wrote one story about Andy this week, which was my Monday column explaining why he’s our ex-girlfriend, and we should want the best for him, but when you do sports radio you need to fill quite a bit of time, and as such, 94 WIP is doing an “Andy Reid Appreciation Day” next Thursday, January 30th.

Writes Andrew Porter on the WIP site:

Terrell Owens Fires Back at Donovan McNabb

Russ Joy - January 22, 2020

You knew T.O. wouldn’t let Donovan McNabb’s comments blaming him for the ugly divorce between the Eagles and Owen go unanswered. Owens came out swinging:

Okay, this is fine. The all-caps CHUNKY SOUP made me laugh and we’ve all heard about McNabb having campaigned for a new deal for Brian Westbrook to decision makers in the Eagles organization. Then this happened:
