After Sunday's big win over the Patriots in Foxboro, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly signaled out one person for responsibility for the win - Angelo Cataldi.
With the team dropping three straight games by a combined 60 points, last week the frustrated WIP morning show resumed a tradition of delivering pies to the NovaCare complex, something he stopped doing after a loss back in 2013 (for which Kelly labeled Cataldi a fair-weather fan).
Apparently, the pies paid off.
On Monday, Kelly labeled Cataldi the "Pied Piper of Positivity," comparing the WIP host to the protester who stood defiantly in front of a row of tanks in Tiananmen Square.
"He blocked out all the negativity, he rallied the troops in this city, and he made a statement," Kelly said. "He delivered three pies—a cherry, a blueberry, and a pecan—and we won. So I think the credit goes to you."
"I'm a very serious broadcaster, I am not a pie delivery man," Cataldi responded, worried that the Eagles will need him to deliver pies for the remainder of the season.
"Do you want to break the streak?" Kelly asked.
What a difference a big win makes. Just a couple of weeks ago, an angry Cataldi jabbed Kelly with a sharp comeback after a suggestion he should be the Eagles head coach because he's a "screamer and yeller."
"I'll tell you, I don't think I'd be worse than 4-6," Cataldi shot back.
Now, after the Eagles big win and facing prospect of being tied for first place in the NFC East, the bromance between the two is back.
"The way you rallied, not only this team but I think this entire city, they may put up a statue of you somewhere," Kelly said.
"This is so demeaning," Cataldi said. "So what's your order for pies?"
