Very well done podcast
I’m an Eagles fan, loyal listener to our own amazing podcast. That being said, the reason I’m here is to hear what’s going on behind enemy lines. While their insight on my team may be slightly inaccurate, (we played vanilla offense 2 weeks in a row now) (sat starters vs Dallas) And their confidence against us may be fabricated, they love their Dirty Birds and all Falcons fans should give it a listen. Well organized episodes, good sound quality, good radio voices. This show has it all.
As for this weekend: Fly, Eagles Fly!
The best podcast in the podcast land. It makes my day when I see that there is an episode available to listen to when I open my podcast app. Keep up the good work boys and RISE UP
Listen to this!!
Hey, I don’t really watch football, but these guys know what they’re talking about my brother says. Make sure you subscribe and listen to them.
My brother Evan told me leave a 5-star review. Thanks have a great day!
