Comedian Joe Conklin has some ideas to help the pain-inducing Eagles and their coach.

This football season has been painful for Eagles fans. It’s been very disappointing in light of what was billed as a possible Superbowl year for the Birds.

Heading into Thursday’s matchup with the Detroit Lions, many Eagles fans are a little woozy from Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers.
