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.
Last week the United States was attacked by a mob goaded on by Donald Trump. Walls were scaled, windows were broken, and the Capitol was taken for the first time since the War of 1812.

They also share our thoughts on Pixar's new movie Soul and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
