Mid-days With Bob Cooney: Weekdays 10am – 2pm

The Bob Cooney Era! Do the Sixers Have an Identity? Download

02:46:19 Download March 18th

(00:00-19:59) It’s the debut of Bob Cooney on middays! Bob wants to know the 76ers identity without Joel Embiid, and with the Eagles, what’s happening with Reddick now that Josh Sweat has been restructured?

(20:21-33:25)  What good has come out of this Embiid-less stretch, if any?

(33:41-43:05) Bob says March Madness has lost it’s luster for him.  What’s most to blame? NIL, transfers, and leaving early for the draft to name a few.

(43:21-1:02:21) The Embiid situation seems to be progressing positively, but still no timeline.  Ray believes the Sweat restructuring points to Reddick NOT returning.

(1:02:41-1:16:49) Bob gives a great 76ers betting tip.  The results haven’t been great with the Sixers, but there is a trait Bob and fans respect about this unit.

(1:16:55-1:24:16) Flyers legend Wayne Simmonds retires and will sign a 1-day contract with the Flyers. Bob & Ray react.

(1:24:26-1:43:22) Brian Westbrook joins Bob Cooney and the midday show to talk Eagles and hoops.  Westbrook talks about the Birds’ offseason moves and how he hopes the culture bounces back.  He also touches on how important a strong start is, how Kellen Moore should use Saquon Barkley, and what he thinks about the 76ers/March Madness this year.

(1:43:41-1:57:34) Bob reacts to Rob Thomson changing the opening day starter and wonders if Topper will change the lineup too. Ray revisits the fear of a wasted season bringing back Sirianni.

(1:57:45-2:06:03) We listen to a couple clips from John Tortorella over the weekend, Bob acknowledges Tortorella’s abrasive demeanor, but his effectiveness as a coach can’t be argued.

(2:06:18-2:27:06) Nick Nurse sits down with Bob Cooney to assess the state of his team without Joel Embiid & a rotating cast of injuries.  Nurse talks about evaluating his young core, what the team may look like with an Embiid return, comparing this squad to his 2019 champion Raptors, and embracing the challenge of winning with such a young squad.  Bob later asks, is this year’s Sixers team not as good as we originally thought?

(2:27:31-2:39:46)  Bob goes back to March Madness and how he “feels awful as a sports fan” for not being all-in on Mach Madness. Ray weighs in and is feeling the same.

(2:39:57-2:46:12) The show goes back to what Brian Westbrook said earlier, specifically regarding the start of the season and the pressure that will be on Nick Sirianni.
