New EFC Show Recording Tonight

We will be recording a new show tonight, and we’ll have special guest Tommy Lawlor from The Scouts Notebook and Fan-Demonium back on the show! As you remember in Episode 26, Tommy joined us as we talked about the Eagles’ needs going into the Draft, and speculated on the direction they’d go.

It’s been a few weeks since the 2008 NFL Draft, and things have settled in around the Philadelphia Eagles. We’ve taken some time to digest the moves and picks, and will talk about that tonight.

If you have any comments or questions for us or Tommy, please get them in. We’ll read it or play it on the show tonight.

You can send an email to fans [at] EaglesFanCast.net, or leave us a voicemail at (856)335-3675.

Mega-trade in the works?

There is a nasty little rumor circulating that the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cincinnati Bengals have “agreed in principle” on a trade that would see the Eagles send disgruntled CB Lito Sheppard and one of their first round draft picks in next year’s draft to the Bengals for their equally disgruntled WR Chad Johnson. Although this is not necessarily a “new” rumor, the latest twist is that both teams are keeping it a secret until June 1st, where certain contractual issues that are currently preventing a deal to occur would resolve themselves.

Just think about it for a moment. Chad Johnson on one side, Reggie Brown (now the #2 receiver) on the other. Kevin Curtis line up in the slot (ala Wes Welker). LJ Smith over tackle, and B-West in the backfield. You tell me, what defense can cover all of those options??? (hint: the answer is NONE)
