Philadelphia football analyst says Eagles should abstain from sex

We can’t imagine the Philadelphia Eagles thinking this could fly.

A former player said the team needed to stop having sex to reverse its 2-3 start to the season.

In a clip posted Monday, Eagles analyst Garry Cobb for Philly station Fox 29 said the Super Bowl champs needed “drastic measures,” a “fast” if you will.

The Fox 29 team finally guessed what Cobb meant and became incredulous, prompting him to say: “It fogs up your mind.”
