    Wulf's Den: Getting Freaky in the Philadelphia Eagles' locker room

    Bo Wulf Avatar
    October 19, 2023

    Where were we? Ah yes, bootstrap journalism.


    Wulf: If you could have, like, a Freaky Friday, switch-bodies-with-one-player-on-the-team thing, who would it be?

    James Bradberry: Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.

    Wulf: (Laughs)

    Bradberry: If I could switch bodies with one player. And this would be like, for practice or it’s just to be them for a day?

    Wulf: That’s up to you, I think. You can choose. If you want to be somebody on game day, feel what that’s like, that would count.

    Bradberry: Uhhhhmmm. Who would I be? Who would I be? Man, that’s a great question.

    Wulf: Should I make it a week instead of a day?

    Bradberry: Nah, I’m trying to think about all that it would encompass to switch bodies. Of course, the first thing I think about is Jalen Hurts, but I don’t want that type of attention.

    Wulf: Sure. But maybe just for game day it would be OK.

    Bradberry: I don’t wanna be the quarterback.

    Wulf: OK.

    Bradberry: I don’t. Because then I gotta make all those reads and whatnot. I was thinking Jason Kelce because he’s so cool, but then I would have to play center and be in the trenches.

    Wulf: Mmm.

    Bradberry: I would probably say Nick Sirianni. I would be the head coach.

    Wulf: Oo, I like that.

    Bradberry: I wanna make some calls.

    Wulf: On game day?

    Bradberry: Game day, for sure.

    Wulf: How long do you think it would take before people were like, ‘Wait a second, is this –?’

    Bradberry: Um.

    Wulf: Do you think you could pull him off?

    Bradberry: Nah. ‘Cause I don’t really show a whole lot of emotion on the sideline.

    Wulf: (Laughs) Right.

    Bradberry: They would probably think he’s sick.

    Wulf: They would think he’s in a bad mood.

    Bradberry: Yeah, they’d probably think I’m in a bad mood. Just because I be so quiet.

    Wulf: OK.

    Bradberry: So, what do you call it, nonchalant.

    Wulf: Yeah, but then you get to hear what the actual conversation is on the headset. That might be interesting.

    Bradberry: For sure. And I get to make calls.

    Wulf: Yeah.

    Bradberry: I’m interested in doing that. So, Nick Sirianni.


    Wulf: If you could, like, switch bodies with somebody else on the team, who would you choose?

    Brandon Graham: Shiiiit. Jalen (Hurts). See what that two-hundred-and-fifty feel like. (Cackles)

    Wulf: And what would you –

    Graham: I’d wanna see what it feel like to be a quarterback, I’m not gonna lie.

    Wulf: OK.

    Graham: Yeah, that’d be cool.

    Wulf: Would you do it for a game day or would you do it just, like, for practice?

    Graham: Game day, for sure. See what it’s like. I ain’t even gotta move, I just wanna see what it’s like patrolling, just doing what he do.

    Wulf: Yeah.

    Graham: And then, having that feeling after the game like, ‘Damn, I just balled out.’ Even though I know it ain’t me. (Cackles)

    Wulf: But it would be you!

    Graham: I know. It would be me for the day.


    Wulf: If you could, like, Freaky Friday switch bodies with someone else on the team for a day, who would you wanna do?

    Jordan Mailata: Say me!

    Patrick Johnson: Switch bodies with someone for a day?

    Wulf: Mmhmm.

    Johnson: Oh man. What have people been saying?

    Wulf: Jalen, feeling what it would be like to be him. James said Sirianni, which I think is a good one.

    Johnson: Man. I don’t know, I might have to say Howie (Roseman). That’s a lot of power.

    Wulf: Ooooooo.

    Johnson: Yeah.

    Wulf: But in just one day of Howie, what could you accomplish?

    Johnson: Oh man.

    Wulf: You know what you could do? Sign Patrick Johnson to a huge long-term extension.

    Johnson: You know what? That would be a good deal, man. I wouldn’t mind staying here for a long time, too. So I’m thinking maybe a little hundred mill.

    Wulf: Yeah!

    Johnson: You know, something like that.

    Wulf: I think that’s the best –

    Johnson: I wouldn’t complain about that.

    Wulf: That’s the best answer so far.

    Johnson: (Laughs) Yeah. That would be the one. That or I’d be somebody pretty fast. Shoot. If it was a player, I might be (D’Andre) Swift.

    Nakobe Dean: Me?

    Johnson: Nah, you’re not faster than me. I might play outside linebacker but you ain’t faster than me. I might say Swift. Would be fun to run the rock a little bit, bring back my old days of being a running back. That would be pretty fun.


    Wulf: OK, you heard the question. If you could Freaky Friday switch bodies with someone for a day, who would it be?

    Jordan Mailata: Is it past or current teammates?

    Wulf: You could do past.

    Mailata: Nick Foles (clears throat).

    Landon Dickerson: (Laughs)

    Mailata: (Laughs)

    Wulf: Enough said.

    Mailata: Enough said.

    Wulf: Landon, anything different for you or there’s nothing that’s gonna top that one?

    Dickerson: I don’t know if anything’s gonna top that one.


    Wulf: If you could Freaky Friday switch bodies with somebody on the team for a day, who would you wanna be?

    Boston Scott: (Cackles)

    Wulf: (Stands silently)

    Scott: (Cackles)

    Wulf: (Stands silently)

    Scott: What?! What!

    Wulf: No?

    Scott: I can’t. I can’t. I can’t, man. (Laughs)


    Wulf: Britain, if you could be somebody else on the team for a day –

    Britain Covey: I would have to go with Jordan Davis, because, man, could you imagine?

    Wulf: The things you could reach!

    Covey: The things you could reach. It would be unbelievable. I mean, my wife would have to go on her tippy-toes to kiss me. Which is such a, you know, weird thing for me to think about.

    Wulf: (Cackles)

    Covey: (Laughs)

    Wulf: You didn’t have to go there, but that’s good. Thank you.


    Wulf: If you could be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you choose?

    Zach Cunningham: Somebody else on the team? I don’t think I’d pick anybody.

    Wulf: No?

    Cunningham: To be honest with you.

    Wulf: Good for you! Very comfortable in your own self.

    Cunningham: (Laughs) For sure.


    Wulf: If you could, like, be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you wanna be?

    Kelee Ringo: Kelee Ringo.

    Wulf: Only one.

    Ringo: Um, shoot. Actually, I don’t know. I couldn’t see myself saying I would wanna be somebody else.

    Wulf: But just for a day, just to see what it’s like.

    Ringo: Uh, shoot. Probably a quarterback. Any given one.


    Wulf: If you could, like, be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you be?

    Nolan Smith: Man, I would be Jalen Hurts. Who wouldn’t wanna be Jalen Hurts?

    Wulf: And what would you do?

    Smith: Man, I’d probably ride around in my Maybach, sit down at a bar, see who I could flirt with. Just be cool.


    Wulf: If you could trade, like, if you could be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you be?

    Fred Johnson: On the team? On the team? And have they bank account for a day?

    Wulf: For a day.

    Johnson: Ohhhh. Give me Jalen Hurts. I’m a Venmo myself about 15. And I go back at the end of the day, right?

    Wulf: Yeah, why not.

    Johnson: Yeah, I’d give myself about five, 10. You know what I’m saying?

    Brett Toth: You only get to do this once.

    Johnson: You can only do it once. If it was, like, to be somebody else in a game, I would definitely have to be, like, a tight end or something.

    Wulf: Interesting.

    Johnson: I just wanna catch a touchdown pass, you know what I’m saying, and spike it.

    Wulf: But then why not just be a wide receiver?

    Johnson: Nahh, that’s too fast. I would wanna do something I can kinda do right now, ’cause I’m an athlete.

    Wulf: OK.

    Johnson: So I’d be a tight end, probably.


    Wulf: If you could trade, like, be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you wanna be?

    Reed Blankenship: If I could be somebody else on the team for a day? Uuuhhh. That’s a tough one. I don’t know. I never thought of that. Usually it’s like a celebrity.

    Wulf: Sure.

    Blankenship: Not a teammate. I don’t know.

    Wulf: It’s like a Freaky Friday thing.

    Blankenship: A Freaky Friday thing. I would say, hmm. I would say (Darius) Slay.

    Wulf: OK. Why Slay?

    Blankenship: Just to see what goes on in his head, honestly.

    Wulf: (Laughs)

    Blankenship: If I could know what’s going on in his head, I guess that would explain a lot.


    Wulf: If you could be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you wanna be?

    Josh Jobe: Ooo. I would say Hurts.

    Wulf: OK. Why’s that.

    Jobe: ‘Cause he’s the man. Feels like he controls everything. That’s QB1.

    Wulf: Now, would you wanna be him on a game day or, like, just a regular day?

    Jobe: On a game day. Dress fly when you walk in, ball out. That’s QB1 for a reason.


    Wulf: If you could be somebody else ont he team for a day, who would you wanna be?

    Kentavius Street: (Sighs deeply) Damn. That’s a great question. Fletch (Cox).

    Wulf: OK. How come?

    Street: Um, outside of football and inside of football, me and Fletch are very similar. He likes cars outside of football, so I think it would be cool to get inside his world and see how he does things. Cause you know he has a drag racing team. So that’s very interesting to me.

    Wulf: OK.

    Street: And I think on a football side, just having all that wisdom at my disposal.


    Wulf: If you could trade places for anybody else on the team for a day, who would you wanna be?

    Marlon Tuipulotu: Who would I choose? On the team? Shoot, first one that comes to mind is BG.

    Wulf: OK. And what would you do as BG?

    Tuipulotu: Shoot, I know he do a lot on and off the field, so just experiencing that.


    Wulf: If you could be somebody else on the team for a day, who would you be?

    Christian Elliss: Oooohhhh. If I could be somebody else on the team for a day, who would I be?

    Wulf: (Standing)

    Elliss: (Thinking)

    Wulf: (Standing)

    Elliss: If I could be someone, I’d be ‘Ko Dean. Because I’d wanna know what it feels like to be that short.

    Wulf: (Laughs)

    Elliss: (Laughs) Let him know I said that, too!


    Wulf: If you could be anybody else on the team for a day –

    Tanner McKee: If I could be anyone on the team. Ummmmm. That’s a good question. I would be Jordan Mailata and just bench press as much as I can and just feel what it feels like to be that big and strong.


    Wulf: If you could be anybody else on the team for a –

    Jason Kelce: Jalen Carter.

    Wulf: And what would you do?

    Kelce: Just beat the fuck out of O-linemen and be young and have my whole career in front of me. (Laughs)
