NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 23: Ben Simmons poses with Commissioner Adam Silver after being drafted first overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center on June 23, 2016 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

See what Andrew Salciunas found in the Audio Vault today. They continued their run through the Eagles’ playoff runs of the past, though the next few runs up on the list are sadly not as deep of runs as the Eagles were used to. But with Ben Simmons returning to play in Philly tonight, they also went back through some of his history with the Sixers and Philly fans. Here is the lineup from the Audio Vault today.

Eagles Lose to Cowboys in 2009-2010 Wild Card Round

One of just a handful of Cowboys playoff wins over the last two decades and their first playoff win since 1996. Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb could not make the same playoff magic Eagles fans were used to. It was a one-and-done run, with them falling 34-14. The Eagles were only in it for a bit, with a Jeremy Maclin TD tying things up 7-7 in the 2nd quarter. But then the Cowboys rattled off 27 unanswered points, and the Eagles never got back into it. the Eagles lost, and the McNabb era in Philly was over. Here is what Andrew pulled from this game for the Vault

Another Early Exit in the 2010-2011 Season

The next year was not much better. It was a great regular season. Michael Vick came in for the injured Kevin Kolb and led the Eagles to an NFC East division win. But the magic did not last in the playoffs. They lost 21-16 to the Packers. David Akers had a disaster missing multiple makable field goals, and the Eagles’ last chance in the playoffs under Andy Reid went up in flames. Here is what Andrew pulled from the Vault for this game.

Ben Simmons Return to Philly

Tonight, Ben Simmons makes his return to Philly. The guy who went from the savior to public enemy number one. Contrary to popular belief, Sixers fans loved him and defended him from national critics for years. But then when he quit on the city, the fans, and his team, it was those same fans who got ripped by those same people in the national media who used to rip Ben Simmons more than anyone. And with Ben coming back to town, Andrew replayed how it all started, showing how excited Sixers fans were to get him.
