The two teams with the best regular season records in the NFL will face off in the Arizona desert in Super Bowl XVII. The Jalen Hurts' led Philadelphia Eagles will try to upstage the magician-like Quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes and don't forget both QBs are finalists for this year's MVP Award.
This will be the Eagles' fourth trip to the Super Bowl with their fourth different Head Coach: Dick Vermeil in 1980, Andy Reid in 2004, Doug Pederson in 2017, and now Nick Sirianni this season. Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman has rebuilt the Birds after a depressing 2020 season and has won the NFL Executive of the Year. Who could have imagined our Eagles would get back to the big game this quickly? Pinch me please, am I dreaming? The excitement has been building all week starting with the televised opening night while The Sports Bash with Mike Gill has been broadcasting from Radio Row this week.
The Locker Room with Billy Schweim can’t wait to join in on the fun!! During Saturday and Sunday shows this weekend we will be giving away “It’s a Philly Thing” and “2023 Conference Champions" T-Shirts to Lucky listeners! Plus Levari’s Seafood Bar & Grill is pitching in with an Eagles collector's edition bottle of Pinot Noir, “The Philly Special”. I’m pumped up for a Great weekend that hopefully ends with a victory in Super Bowl XVII.
