After a few months’ hiatus, the show is back. Jason from Bleeding Green Nation and SB Nation Philly is on tonight and we talk mostly about the newly-released 2011 Eagles schedule. It’s so early to truly evaluate the schedule and the Eagles chances this year, especially with the uncertainty of the current NFL lockout and negotiations. Jason and Chuck touch on the lockout, and the trickle down issues having to do with player conditioning, finances and more.
Overall, we both feel that the schedule looks like a challenging one, but can be one that the Eagles can excel and prove themselves in a very public eye. Five of the games are primetime, with three more in the later slot, so half of their schedule are nationally televised. Eagles fans will get to see plenty of their team no matter where they are.

We’re just over a week away from the NFL Draft, and today the 2009 NFL Schedule was released. It’s an exciting time in the offseason, that’s for sure. So we talk about the Eagles schedule, a loss of a Philadelphia “friend” and what we have planned for next week.
What we discussed:
- The 2009 NFL Schedule was released today, and we are not happy how it turned out, for many reasons
- Eric talks about meeting Harry Kalas in Chicago in 2008
- We remember Harry Kalas, the voice of the Philadelphia Phillies and NFL Films, who passed away on Monday
- Tommy Lawlor from The Scouts Notebook and PhiladelphiaEagles.com’s Fan-Demonium will be joining us next week to talk with us about what we should expect from the Draft

The NFL has released the full schedule for the upcoming 2008 season. At first glance, the Eagles schedule looks full of some good opportunities to shine in the national spotlight. We have two Monday night games, two Sunday night games, and a home game against the Arizona Cardinals on Thanksgiving night! Battle lines have already been drawn in thousands of homes in the tri-state area, including mine.
In related news, the Dallas Cowboys have four…FOUR!..1:00 games scheduled. That’s right, folks. The ‘Boys will either be in prime-time or nationally televised for 12 out of their 16 games. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Also, the Super-Bowl runner up New England Patriots have been given the EASIEST schedule based on strength of their opponent’s 2007 records. Is there no justice? The NFL is a pandering group of greedy misanthropes (thanks Chuck!).
