The Advocates for Minor Leaguers is investigating the allegations. (approx. 9:25)We then talked about youth athletics, the future of little league, and the lack of individuals wanting to volunteer in their community to referee and officiate youth sports. (approx. 19:20)Then, we attempted to discuss the coming Villanova Wildcats season, but inevitably circled back to a lack of interest in college basketball. (approx. 28:10)We dove into some Eagles talk, reflections of last week's game against the 49'ers, and gave our scoring predictions for this week's Monday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys. (approx. 34:10)This week's interview, and what we threw down on the Table was a discussion with Ed Kracz from SI.com about this Eagles team, what we've been seeing early on, how injuries are already plaguing the team, and how younger players will need to step up and inevitably develop during this 2021-2022 season.

Week 2 of the Eagles 2021 season is now in the books! The Birds lost to the San Fransisco 49'ers at their first home game of the season inside The Linc by a score of 17-11. The Eagles are now 1-1 on the season. The defense got off to a great start and played well against the Niners' run game for the majority of the game. However, the offense and Nick Sirianni couldn't get much momentum in this game, showing us how much of a developmental season we're in for. It was up and down for Jalen Hurts - mostly down - and the Eagles receiving corps was extremely uninspiring in this game.This week, we were joined by David Esser from sportscasting.com as we gave our analysis of this very disappointing loss.As always, we gave our takeaways, dove into the stats, and graded the units and coaches.Head over to our website for more podcasts and more: https://www.philadelphiasportstable.com.Follow the guys on Twitter:Jeff Warren: @Jeffrey_WarrenErik Leonard: @BrickPolittLen Hunsicker: @LenHunsickerFollow the show on Instagram: @philadelphiasportstable"Like" our Facebook Page: facebook.com/PhiladelphiaSportsTable

Week 1 of the Eagles 2021 season is now in the books! This team routed the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 32-6 down in Atlanta as this was Nick Sirianni's first regular season game as the Eagles head coach!While the defense got off to a shaky start and allowed the Falcons offense to run all over them, they hunkered down, made adjustments, and become dominant within the second half of the game. A great defensive performance by new defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon & Co. as this defense ended the day with 3 sacks and 9 QB hits.The offense truly appeared to be a well-oiled machine for much of the game. Jalen Hurts was the quarterback in this game who was in command and showed tremendous poise. He thew for 3 touchdowns and ran for over 6 yards as well.While the Atlanta Falcons are not a good pro football team, we saw much promise from this Eagles team during this first game of the season.As always, we gave our takeaways, dove into the stats, and graded the units and coaches.Head over to our website for more podcasts and more: https://www.philadelphiasportstable.com.Follow the guys on Twitter:Jeff Warren: @Jeffrey_WarrenErik Leonard: @BrickPolittLen Hunsicker: @LenHunsickerFollow the show on Instagram: @philadelphiasportstable"Like" our Facebook Page: facebook.com/PhiladelphiaSportsTable
