jeff skversky with mike missanelli from 97.5 the phanatic and we are sitting here talking about teams in the nfl playoffs and not the eagles and carson wentz says he never wants this and doug pederson said they were close but the general manager said they were not close. that is the question and coach speak obviously we are close but laying the realistic viewpoint which is they are not close and encouraging things the general manager said and says 10-6 were not good enough and thought it was good enough for the playoffs and once you get in the playoffs you can do great things and will look at players a different way and i don't know what that means yet and i hope it means he will trust his tenants to pick the right players because his track record has not been that good but encouragedd encouraged tha
things are looking good and eagles were not in the playoffs today. >> no they were not and the biggest need for the team to be a perenial team is what?. >> cornerback first. >> over receiver? >> i know, there is dilemma here and carson wentz and play around him and look at the defense side of the football and look at the draft and see the cornerbacks are there is a plethora of cornerbacks that can come in and straight right away and would not squander that chance but focus on the wide receivers but go cornerback in the first round. >> they need play makers like desean jackson and guys they had and how about this, roseman taking perhaps a shot at chill kelly this week, listen. >> seems like a long time ago where we are leading the national football league in 20 plus plays and don't have a delorian time machine to go back in time and get some of those
guys back, we have a young group and room and they need to continue to grow and it's one of the things among others that we need to look at. >> reporter: wow, i bet that and delorian time machine and give him credit. >> if you had a time machine like doc brown and marty mcfly in back to the future moves what is one eagles move you would reverse. >> you really asking this question and it's one desean jackson because they lost that guy and the top defense and looking for him for the last two years and as soon as desean jackson went their passing attack fizzled, he was the type of guy who can make big plays and don't have guys with big plays and the second is shady mccoy but desean jackson is the first mistake and got nothing back for him. >> one common denominator chip kelly well the eagles could go back to the future in march and bring desean back that is right the redskins receiver is a free agent but not everyone would be on board with this move.
listen to what ron says about the idea of bringing desean jackson back. >> i would not bring desean jackson back i would bring someone with desean jackson's skills a young desean jackson via the draft. i'm just a firm believer right wrong or different and you can agree or disagree with me i think you build your team through the draft and you develop your team through the draft with young players. i want a guy that is going to come here and be carson wentz's go to guy for the next ten years like peyton manning and marvin harrison and aikman had irvin and a young guy with the draft 21, 22 years old and you watch this group grow and flourish together. >> in your time machine would you bring back desean. >> no as much as i want to go back in a time machine i would not bring him back he is 30, 31 years old and lose his step by the time the eagles and they are a couple years away and we know
that, they have a lot of positions to fill and that was reiterated by the general manager so by the time he is ready to you know he is going to be 34 years old by the time they are ready to win i think it's risky and the money thing is also prohibited to me. i would go for a younger player as well. >> the season took a turn for the worse in north when aaron rodgers beat them up and tonight he is making the giants so upset he reportedly punched a hole outside the locker room and banged his head on the door and aaron rodgers four touchdown against the giants in the wild card and end of half rogers all the time in the world look at this nearly ten seconds finally and adams takes a one point lead and no time left if the half and rogers what the help throws up a hail mary and randall cobb 42 yards. >> how did he get behind him. >> eli apple makes a mistake and
green bay 38-13 and going to dallas and the giants lose their first playoff game since losing to the eagles in 09 and the giants go back to miami for that extended vacation. >> rogers was sensational today. >> yes he was and miami and dolphins look ice cold in pittsburgh and feels like one and ben rothlisberger with a pair of 50 yard passes for a touchdown in the playoff game to brown and one for 50 and pittsburgh 30-12 and headed to kansas city to face andy reid and hard to believe the eagles beat up the same steelers team back in september. >> how do you run that what is that called? your legs don't work when it's that cold. >> i'm a mess that is why i'm sitting here with you. all right speaking of the playoffs are the sixers a playoff team wait until you hear who is talking a big game. we will be right back. stay tuned for more action news

♪ action news sports sunday sponsored by audi challenge all givens. ♪ exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast cold on monday with less wind the high up to 27, chilly not as harsh on tuesday and 38 and mixed precipitation north and west before temperatures rise overnight and transitions to rain and fog and high and 60 on thursday and guys send it back to you. thanks melissa the sixers may have won ten games and as many as they won last seasons and playing well won three of four and are you excited we have not seen ben simmons yet. >> surprised what i'm seeing with the sixers with the role players are stepping forward and guys like nick and mcconnell is getting a lot of minutes out there and covington has come
alive and joe ellen bead are making the playoff and with a date withry rianna. >> they are waking up and i'm going to get them coffee and a tip off for every one and second half on fire 30-9 run and sixers in front and early and bead with a nice move and finishes with 20 and robert covington takes over, slams it down part of a 13-0 run and a minute later more and sixers 105-95 and won three of four and indeed walked off the floor as they don't trust the process on the road like they did the other night in boston. >> this is great going on the wall there having the process and last time he was in boston
and brooklyn is great and i loved the support. >> so you're buying this, he thinks they have a shot at the playoffs so you're buying it no of course not. >> i'm not buying it they would have to win close to 40 games to get in the playoffs. they only have ten. where do they see the wins coming from ben simmons will help if he plays and worried if they are going to put him back on the court. it was january and now it's february, and once february arrives will they push it again? there is no chance if ben simmons does not play they can win enough games to get on that kind of a streak. >> next playoff team likely the flyers they are struggling but looking okay tonight in columbus. let's go to the highlights flyers in columbus, steve mason trying to pick up a win out there for the first time in 12 years scoreless until the second and david sevard past mason and no goalie interference and 1-zip to the end of the third and 60 seconds left and they finally beat former flyer sergei and
flyers tie at one but in over time nick falino and flyers lose 2-1 and dropped 8 of their last 10 games so are they the next playoff team, the second wild card team right now and lost steam after the ten-game winning streak. >> now the way they are playing have come back to earth, i don't know what it's going to take a high goll tender which they don't have and nation is not hot and somebody has to step up and really carry the team. >> hope they can get in the playoffs because this city needs it. >> one playoff team at least one. >> we have villa nova. >> all due respect to villa nova. >> chris generaling jenkins and devastated when the eagles didn't make it, i'm mike and jeff good night. ♪
