Anthony Gargano Discussed His Fear of San Francisco In His Opening Diatribe This Morning…

I was talking to my cousin last night. He had me fired up.  I have to admit, this week I have been a little tepid. Like I do think they are going to win the opening game. But I am a tad fearful of San Francisco. I have been fearful of San Francisco all year, to be honest with you. There is something about the matchup I am not in love with. That doesn’t mean I don’t think they can beat with San Francisco. I just am a little fearful. Especially if Jalen’s should is not right. 

So he and I were talking. He goes San Francisco is good, but stop. You are still looking at a kid who was Mr.Irrelavnt. Is Brock Purdy really going to beat you? It is one thing to play well in the regular season as a game manager. But you know better than anyone that come playoff time it is a different beast. He is telling me, I don’t get your fear. And it kind of gave me a different way of looking at it. I felt better talking to my cousin about it. All Week long I had this fear. But I woke up today and I felt pretty confident. I felt like it could be Buffalo- Eagles Superbowl. Which would be the perfect matchup. 

Kansas City vs Eagles would be great too. But there was a headline on ESPN. The headline was “If You Love Buffalo, Buffalo Will Love You Back”. And that is Philadelphia. That is Philadelphia to a tee. If you love Philadelphia, Philadelphia will love you back. And I would love to see Eagles-Bills. That would be an awesome Super Bowl. 

All I keep thinking about is the road to the Superbowl. I want Eagles-Cowboys. I want the Cowboys, I want to start the playoffs Eagles-Cowboys at the Linc. And then if it is San Fran so be it.  Bleep Brock Purdy. That is my playoff wish. 

And you can listen to his full Opening Diatribe below…
