Tonight The B-Straw and Pauly G Show took a Road Trip to Philadelphia and Memphis. First in Philadelphia they talked to Brian Haddad, WIP, to talk about the Eagles dropping DeSean Jackson due to alleged gang connections. Haddad doesn’t think he’ll be out of work long and hated to see him leave the team, but says the team must have felt strong about his off field issues to let him loose. Then they journeyed to Memphis to talk to David Jablonski, Dayton Daily News, to talk about Dayton’s Cinderella story so far. Jablonski says the odds may be against Dayton but stranger upsets have happened before.
Howard Eskin of WIP in Philadelphia joined The Triple Threat to detail Desean Jackson’s problems.

Connor Barwin joined MaD Radio to talk about how the Philadelphia is changing football, Seth’s biking, and the OLB situation here in Houston.
A season of transition brought a new coach with a breath of fresh air and a new identity as a team. There were adjustments along the way as Chip Kelly adjusted to life as an NFL coach after serving an entire career at the college level, but his players bought in to the mentality Kelly introduced to them and fought their way to an NFC East division title few saw coming before the season started.
A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
The Philadelphia Eagles will need their defensive secondary to be on their toes this weekend with Drew Brees leading the New Orleans Saints in to town with a monster of a passing offense. Fortunately for the Eagles, the defensive backfield is getting healthier in time for the playoffs.
Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.
Drew Brees will be much more successful against the Eagles defense than back-up Kyle Orton was in the final game of the regular season. But, if the Eagles can knock Brees off his game, then the Saints could quickly run out of options to try and keep up wit the Eagles offense.
