EaglesFanCast 108 – The Lockout Is Over

The NFL lockout is over, and the teams, players and staff are reporting back to work in an official manner.  The day has been busy with news around the league, but not much so far in the Philadelphia Eagles camp, with only some rookie free agent signings and a number of rumors.

We come back from our lockout hiatus and jump into what we know so far and what we expect from here.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Eagles will not be re-signing any of their free agents
  • Surprised that Stewart Bradley will not be back
  • Longtime favorite David Akers, a kicking legend in Philly and the last of the Eagles Super Bowl team, will also be gone
  • We talk about Kevin Kolb and how his status is affected by the Seahawks’ signing of two quarterbacks
  • Brett Favre coming to Philly? No way, Eskin.
  • Somehow Todd gets to talking about how bad Donovan McNabb played in that fateful Super Bowl
  • We get a voicemail from Elijah Smalls

Football is BACK!

As reported from multiple sources, the NFL players and owners today agreed to the labor deal. Football is back, my friends, and today was just the beginning. From here until the season starts, I think we’re going to see a frantic NFL news feed, with teams scrambling to make the moves they feel necessary to finish building for the 2011-2012 season. Should be interesting in the next few weeks, to say the least.

On our end, we’re pulling the band back together to do a show either this week or next… then much more often as we get closer to the season itself. We miss talking about this team.  Football is back!
