The countdown to Super Bowl LVII is on!! The Philadelphia Eagles will play against their former head coach Andy Reid and his Kansas City Chiefs in a game that will feature numerous storylines and there is a lot to break down in this match up leading up to next Sunday’s game in Arizona. First you have Jason Kelce and Travis Kelce in Super Bowl 57, the first time that brothers will face each other in the big game and you know the two popular guys will be battling for bragging rights. Next there is history happening on February 12th with Two Black Starting Quarterbacks in the Super Bowl with both Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes both finalists for the NFL MVP. Don't forget Andy Reid is the all-time winningest Head Coach in Eagles history and he has 110+ wins as Head Coach of each of the franchises he has led to Super Bowls. However the biggest story for Eagles fans is this could be the Birds' second victory in the Super Bowl in six years, putting Philadelphia in the conversation as the Gold Standard in the NFC! There will be wall-to-wall coverage this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim!
The Flyers finished up the first half of their season with a .500 record and 51 points at the NHL All-Star break. The Flyers are the only Philly sports team not in the top echelon of their respective sport. The Philadelphia 76ers, with 12 wins in the month of January and moved into third place in the Eastern Conference. Sixers head coach Doc Rivers and All-star center Joel Embiid were named Head coach and player of the month. What a time to be a Philadelphia Sports Fan!!
On Saturday’s show, former Three-time All-Big Ten Linebacker Brad Quast will join me in the studio. We will look at the Eagles versus Chiefs matchup in the big game. The Sports Book Consigliere Dave Sharapan will check in from Las Vegas brought to you by Dino’s Subs and Pizza of Margate. "The Book" will entertain us with his unique perspective as always. In Hour Two, we will hear from Former Head Coach of the Haddon Heights Football team Ralph Schiavo. Eagles Edge Rusher Haason Reddick played for Coach Schiavo and we will talk with the coach about Haason's High School career before attending College at Temple.
On Sunday’s show, my Twin brother Bobby Schweim will join me in the studio. When Bobby comes in, you know it will be lively and probably go off the rails so Producer Nick Earnshaw will have to keep us on track. In Hour Two, we will talk with Contributing Writer with the Philadelphia Inquirer Ed Barkowitz. Ed has a wealth of knowledge on Eagles history and we will pick his brain on the Birds heading back to their third Super Bowl appearance in the last 20 years!
It’s a big weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, listen every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to Noon on 97.3 ESPN radio.
