Giddy Preseason – EaglesFanCast 184

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles played their third preseason game, the first on the road, against the Green Bay Packers.  The Birds lay down 39 points in the first half alone.  On top of that, quarterback Sam Bradford played a perfect game.  We reiterate… perfect.  He threw no incompletions, going 10 for 10 for 121 yards, and three touchdowns, in the first seven minutes of the game.  Bradford’s accuracy was great, and he had the finesse and confidence that every team wants as their starter.

It’s hard not to get excited at this point about what we are seeing in our QB, his weapons, the much-improved Defense, and even the continued success of special teams.

The last preseason game is on the road against the New York Jets up in northern New Jersey.  We will not see many of the high-caliber starters, but we will get to see the depth players fighting to make the team. The 53-man roster deadline is fast approaching, and I don’t envy the Eagles coaches with making those decisions as to what players have to go.

Bradford and Murray – EaglesFanCast 183

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe second preseason game is in the books, and so is another 40 points from the Eagles!  It wasn’t just the high score that has us kind of excited, but also that our new quarterback Sam Bradford looked good, and took a few hits and felt good about it.  On top of it, our new running back, DeMarco Murray, also did well, running strong, and scoring a touchdown against a Baltimore Ravens Defense that looked almost lazy.  What else?  Oh maybe that our new wide receiver Nelson Agholor continues to impress, and we also ran back a punt for a touchdown (Kenjon Barner’s second in two games), and of course a couple of interceptions of Joe Flacco by safety Walter Thurmond and cornerback Byron Maxwell also gives a warm feeling in the stomach.

On top of everything else, Mychal Kendricks, our outstanding linebacker, just signed a long-term deal with the Eagles today.  Along with fellow linebacker Kiko Alonso coming back from his injury soon, possibly this week, we should all be excited.

Things look good right now, and the excitement continues to build to a 2015 Philadelphia Eagles season with Chip Kelly’s plan starting to take shape for all of us.  We will see more this week when the Eagles travel to play the Green Bay Packers.

Preseason Optimism – EaglesFanCast 182

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The next phase of the 2015 Philadelphia Eagles has started with the first Preseason game in the books, with the Eagles beating the Indianapolis Colts on a very hot Summer day in South Philly.  Eagles fans were finally able to see, well, most of what coach Chip Kelly has built in this sometimes chaotic, and certainly newsworthy offseason.  Although new Eagles Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray did not play, we were able to see a rebuilt Defense, and much-changed Offense take the field at The Linc for the first time. One of the most talked about positions has been at quarterback… not the starter, but the battle for the third spot.  Yeah, it’s been that kind of offseason.  Eagles veteran Matt Barkley and newcomer, well for the Eagles, anyway, Tim Tebow both played to an excited crowd.

Discounted JerseysWe talk about that excitement, and a few observations in this first of four-game preseason, as well as Sam Bradford’s expected debut in next week’s game.

Football is back, Eagles Fans, and with so many unexpected changes and drastic moves and losses, we are finally starting to see the beginnings of a plan.  Let’s be optimistic, and let’s demand the best this team can muster.

Eagles Pre-Draft 2015 – EaglesFanCast 181

EaglesFanCast Podcast

 

Like so many of our years before, we are joined by the one and only Tommy Lawlor this week for his amazing analysis of the Eagles needs and fits in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Only a few days until the Draft kicks off Thursday night, and only a small handful of people inside the Philadelphia Eagles organization know what they have planned.  The Eagles fans, analysts, and Draft geeks can only speculate what this unpredictable organization will do by the end of the upcoming weekend.  Chip Kelly has surprised and wowed many for the past few months, leading some to speculate he is a genius and others to proclaim him insane.  Either way it has been entertaining, and the excitement leads right up to this particular Draft, which some Eagles media has been talking about since the middle of the 2014 season, because of one player, Marcus Mariota.

We discuss Mariota and what he would bring to the team, and what the Eagles would have to give up to get him.   From there we move on and Tommy opens the floodgates of his college football player knowledge past and present.  We go position by position on both Offense and Defense and talk about the needs, wants, and who the Eagles might pick up, and when.

Players like TJ Clemmings, Jake Fisher, or Brandon Sherff could be the Eagles newest Offensive Lineman.  We talked about the Cornerback and Safety needs, and players Quentin Rollins, Eric Rowe, Adrian Amos, Damarious Randall, and Byron Jones are all those that could fit Eagles needs.

No one has it figured out yet, but we have a feeling it’s going to be an exciting night for Eagles fans as we welcome the newest to wear midnight green.

Tebow and the Schedule – EaglesFanCast 180

EaglesFanCast Podcast

We are joined tonight by our original team member, Eric Grigg!  We start the discussions with the latest entry into the Eagles quarterback pool, arguably  controversial, Tim Tebow.  It surprised a lot of Eagles fans considering coach Chip Kelly’s other moves at the position this offseason.  With five quarterbacks right now, it’s going to be an interesting offseason, especially with the NFL Draft only a couple weeks away.

But next, just tonight the NFL 2015 schedule was released, and we break down our feelings on the season, and speculate how the season will go.  If we have the caliber team we did in 2014, it will be a great year (and it is a huge IF at this point), and many eyes will be on the Eagles, as we have a lot of primetime games to play.

We are ready for 2015!  Let’s go Eagles!!
