make sure they wear the new winter coat and gloves that they got from santa here's southbound i-95 an accident right here near cottman avenue. good news they have it all push off to the shoulder, downtown we will go vine street expressway looking good starting to see volume pop it is a crazy days, first day back, after a long, holiday weekend, it is always a little busy and then north on the new jersey turnpike, as we just heard from jenny joyce live up there outer drive closed as you a approach exit number 7a as they investigate that early morning accident and some changes, on the the pennsylvania turnpike, first of all, coming from new jersey into pennsylvania, you no longer have to stop and pay the the toll when you enter into philadelphia. it is non-stop cashless they will take a picture of your license plate and you'll get the bill in the mail. on top of that, all of the toll plazas, have the toll increase in play. this is a toll increase that went into effect yesterday, if
you had the e-z pass tag, nothing will change. you zip right on through get the bill in the mail, charge it the to your charge card. but if you pay cash that is where you have to dig deeper and depend upon what exit you get off but expect delays at the cash lanes for the next couple of days until we get used to that new fare increase. new schedule on the high speed line, no problems or delays at the moment on the trains and we are looking good across the septa system. chris and lauren, back over to you. is what worse than a toll increase. >> the eagles season. >> suffering is over, season is over quietly. >> i know, they will not go to the playoffs but we did end the dismal season on a winning high note. the less than a week after firing head coach chip kelly, bird beat giants under interim head coach pat shurmur, 35-30 net life stadium. turning .38-yard interception by walter thurmond in the third quarter. big daddy is sitting over here next to you, making some noise. >> yes, because he said it was
the the highlight of the ending with a win. where i did not look the at it that way. i don't understand why they won that game yesterday. it made no sense to win it. let me get this straight, be in out there gets anything confused. i expect everybody on the field to give a hundred percent and play like pros. i just didn't like who they had on the field. >> all of the starters. >> the game meant nothing, all it did was guarantee that now you have to play seattle, in seattle next year. we would have had a neutral game in london against the rams. your boy nick foles, all right. so, we now have to go to seattle. so almost a guarantied lost. we lost draft slots. we are now drafting lower then we would haved about had we lost the game. it made no sense to play bradford any of these guys. >> this guy, pat wanted to prove that he could do the
job. >> you you want to know, bro. >> he is not going to be the head coach of the philadelphia eagles: before we get into this talk i want to read you a tweet from kevin green. the if the eagles were smart, they would buy john gruden out of his espn contract. what do you think about that. >> would i take gruden, i would take gruden over any of the coordinators thaw are hearing about. some of these coordinators you have to start more often then not as a coordinator before you get to the head coach. i get that. there are some very qualified coordinators out there. but i would take gruden. would i take sean payton. would i take bill cowher. >> dick vermeil certainly is not happening. dick vermeil 79 year-old out of retirement. >> watch him cry one shore time, yes. >> you didn't like the the players on the field but did you like how they played yesterday. >> i did like how they played on the field yesterday but, it
was a game, two years in a row they lose the game that they are supposed to win against the red skin, and then lose the the game they are supposed to lose. >> let's look ahead now, zach ertz played really well. >> he looks like he is a keeper. >> sam bradford has looked much sharper. >> he has. >> here's my take on bradford he will get a lot have of money, an awful lot of money but in the nfl it is so hard to find even an average quarterback which is what he is. he will have his quarterback but it is hard to find an average quarterback. they will to have resign him. nobody else is out there. he has played better, no doubt good demarco murray do you find a whole different offensive strategy for him to open up, the the middle of the field for him so he he runs more vertical and not horizontally. >> within play goes for 54-yard touchdown and then that is it. and then bradford takes hike under center and gives ball to murray. >> but it worked.
>> and then that was it though for the rest of the game. it never happened again. >> shurmur in his defense said i didn't have time to change so we will go with chip's offense this last game. >> i get that. who is going to be the next coach? i still think it will be mcdermott. >> were you surprised about the timing of chip kelly's release. >> no, i was not. i was not surprised by timing. i was not surprised by the firing. my listeners know i have been saying this would happen. howie roseman is the key man. i think lurie considered himself to be embarrassed by the the way chip kelly bullied him into getting rid of howie roseman. he stayed in the building. name me another work place where you fire a guy, but he is still in the same building, same floor. >> strange. >> it is very strange. >> so i was not surprised. i think lurie felt embarrassed
by what happen. kelly gets his job and does worse than roseman. he did. >> i'm glad you are joining us on the set. >> do i get to talk my next event. >> i could. >> i would have to know when it is. >> it is in new jersey. >> yes, valentines day weekend me and joe conklin and lauren, and chris, will be all on stage. >> happy new you year 2016 will be interesting. >> man, it will be. >> i'm glad i'm a sitting next to lauren. >> surrounded by two great guys but hundreds of his closest family and friend, a world war two vet in upstate insuring celebrates a huge birthday, chris murphy has more.
