The Super Bowl has come and gone, and the Eagles are kings of the NFL.

The Evil Empire took a hit on Sunday. Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles conquered Tom Brady’s New England Patriots in Super Bowl 52. It was a fantastic game, filled with missed PATs, trick plays, and one beautiful sack-fumble in the fourth quarter. The game came down to a hail mary attempt by Brady, which was eventually batted down, crowning the Eagles as Super Bowl Champions.

Beating a team that has amassed over 600 yards in a game is no easy feat, but it’s one that the Eagles achieved. Behind a balanced offensive attack, the Eagles were able to not only go shot for shot with Brady but lead for most of the game. Foles was named MVP, carving up the Pats defense behind a strong offensive line and playmakers at his disposal.

Sunday gave Philadelphia their first Lombardi trophy, one that fans have waited for their whole lives. From losing their franchise quarterback late in the year to being atop the NFL, it was a whirlwind season for the Eagles. The confetti fell down, players proclaimed that they were Disney World bound, and the team kissed the long-awaited trophy.

We talk about Peters against the Seahawks and touch on an NFL mock draft.

The NFC West just got tougher. Marcus Peters is a Ram, adding another young, talented piece to the defending division champs. That presents some problems for the Seahawks in a couple of different ways. On the field to the trade market, this deal shakes things up for Seattle.

In our most recent mailbag, it starts off with a doozy: we play FMK with the LOB. There is a rehashing of the infamous goalline play in Super Bowl 49, reluctantly brought up. To cap it, we go over what is an “acceptable” trade package for Russell Wilson.

Finishing the show, we touch on a certain NFL mock draft where the Seahawks select a high-upside player. A move that is unfamiliar with Seattle. Last but not least, I drop a hot take on what the Hawks should do in the first round of the draft.

Will the Seahawks Be Able to Run the Ball?

Published

on

Doug Baldwin noticed the Eagles’ rushing performance in the Super Bowl, can the Seahawks replicate that success?

In this past Super Bowl, the Eagles led for most of the game. That allowed them to run the ball, which they had succeeded in doing. Philadelphia’s offense was a balanced attack last Sunday, catching the eye of a Seahawks receiver. Doug Baldwin noticed how the Eagles were having success running the football and saw how efficient they were on third down, a philosophy of Pete Carroll for winning football games. Can the Seahawks get back to running the football like the days of old?

Here is what went down in today’s show:

  • Hall of Fame inductees
  • Talk about Baldwin’s tweet, how we’re skeptical of the Seahawks run game
  • Germain Ifedi being mad online
  • Call to the listeners for suggestions about what they want to hear on the show
  • The Good Place

Any time we have Ken Norton Jr. talk to anchor the show, you know you’re in for a wild ride.
