On the first Faceoff with Chris episode of 2014, Chris DiFrancesco and Jason Miller ring in the new year by going over numerous popular topics surrounding the City of Brotherly Love. First, Chris and Jason discuss what went wrong with the Eagles in their playoff loss against the Saints. What were the biggest surprises and disappointments of the 2013 Eagles season, and what’s next in the Chip-Kelly era?
After football, Chris discusses his own Team Canada picks, which were different than who was actually chosen. Was Claude Giroux snubbed? Should Flyers fans be happy he’s staying behind to rest up for the rest of the season? Next, Chris and Jay Mill discuss the Phillies’ mega TV deal with Comcast Sports Net, and what this means for years to come. Why is there such little excitement for this season, which kicks off in just over a month?
Chris and Jason close the show with their expectations of the smoking-hot Flyers heading into the Olympic break. Will their streak continue with more wins, or will they fall back into their early season woes?
