Three years after winning the Super Bowl the Philadelphia Eagles have fired their head coach, have no offensive coordinator, no defensive coordinator, aging stars, cap issues, and an issue at quarterback after Carson Wentz got benched. Probably not where fans thought the team would be. So where does the team go from here? This week three fans talk about why the Eagles were so bad this year and if the team can be fixed or if it's time for a rebuild. We also share our thoughts on the first two episodes of 'WandaVision' on Disney+ and the first season of 'I May Destroy You' on HBO.

Usually, this podcast comes out on Tuesday and we talk about what is happening in the news. But is anything we talk about on Tuesday morning going to be bigger than the news happening on Tuesday night. With that in mind if you need something to take your mind off the election or you are just too nervous to watch as the results come - this week we each picked five movies each to watch instead of election coverage. We hope this helps!!
