We've taken a few months off, and it was a slow Eagles news time anyway, but we are back.
Unfortunately, we record this episode with heavy hearts, as long-time Eagles Defensive Coordinator, Jim Johnson, passed away today. He had been battling cancer for a while, and was 68. We will never forget what he did for the players, coaches and fans of this organization, and we wish his family all the best during this very hard time.
The Philadelphia Eagles website has an amazing tribute to the best Defensive Coordinator the organization, and perhaps the NFL, has ever had.
What we talked about:
One last thing, web aficionado and all-around good guy, Drew Olanoff, was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. Not one to sit back and do nothing, he turned his passion for life and the web on the cancer itself. If you are on twitter, chances are you have seen people blame Drew's cancer for many things in their own lives. Drew's created the "Blame Drew's Cancer" movement where he has partnered with Livestrong, and hopes to get sponsors to donate a dollar for every time someone blames Drew's cancer for something. If you're on twitter, go ahead.
We're back, so too should you be:
