EaglesFanCast Episode 33 – Bring the Heat, Jimmy!

Show Notes: Episode 33 for Tuesday, September 23, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles took on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field and smother the Steeler Offense for a 15-6 victory. The Eagles Defense was the side to step up big this game, swarming the confused Steeler quarterbacks and getting nine sacks in the process. Our Eagles are now 2-1 and are playing at a very high level as they travel up to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears this coming Sunday for a prime time game. We are really enjoying what we’re seeing at this point from this team.

What we discussed:

  • Thanks to all of our new listeners to the podcast and followers on twitter… Welcome!
  • The Eagles of Philadelphia beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Philly, 15-6
  • Brian Dawkins did NOT look old and slow, looking more like Superman with something to prove
  • Eagles Defense, looking amazing, swarmed Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, sacking him eight times and backup QB Byron Leftwich one time
  • Brian Westbrook and Donovan McNabb suffered injuries during the game, with McNabb returning and Westbrook not
  • We have a voicemail from Eric in Lansdale, PA
  • Asante Samuel had a great interception, his second of the season, and looks to be fitting his role quite nicely here in Philadelphia
  • We talk about the NFC East Division, and the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins
  • Tailgate talk and some of the shenanigans that ensued
  • We have some Chicago Bears talk, and try to put our fingers on how the Eagles approach the game

EaglesFanCast Episode 32 – Respect Your Elders

Show Notes: Episode 32 for Wednesday, September 17, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles lose a heartbreaker in Irving Texas to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football. In one of the best NFL games I’ve ever watched, critical mistakes cost the Eagles the game, and they fall 41-37. In this show we try to put perspective on the game, how early in the season it is, what went wrong, and what can be done to fix things. Despite the loss, we recognize that the Eagles are truly one of the best teams in the NFL this season, and it will be a fun ride to the end.

What we discussed:

  • Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Dallas Cowboys, 41-37
  • We address Donovan McNabb’s fumbled handoff to Brian Westbrook and his inability to run the 2-minute Offense
  • Sean Considine got burned badly in the Terrell Owens TD reception
  • Brian Dawkins looked old and slow and definitely not on his game, and it’s both sad and worrisome
  • Three teams from the NFC East are in the Top 5 for the ESPN NFL Power Rankings
  • We talk about coaching on both sides of the ball
  • We have an email from Jason who talks about how he feels the day after the loss
  • The Eagles play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field this coming Sunday
  • One of the things the Defense has to do this week is get to Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger
  • We get a twitter message from our buddy Jason from Bleeding Green Nation asking about any kind of interstate rivalry that may exist with the Steelers
  • We have a big tailgate planned this week, BIG!

Episode 31 – Opening Day Blowout

Show Notes: Episode 31 for Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Our Philadelphia Eagles start the NFL 2008 season with a blowout win at home in Lincoln Financial Field against the St. Louis Rams.  The Eagles played great on all sides of the ball, including Special Teams, and our QB Donovan McNabb looked confident and back to 100% as we all hoped.  There were few, if any, negative aspects of the game, and there was never a time when the Rams were in the game.  This show had a lot of energy and we couldn’t help but get excited for the season, and we all anticipate the next game against our NFC East rivals, Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

What we discussed:

  • Philadelphia Eagles win over the St. Louis Rams, 38-3
  • Eric and Chuck were at The Linc and Todd watched the game from his couch at home
  • We question Todd’s sanity with some of his comments
  • We have a voicemail from Aussie Mike, who warns us not to get too excited about one win
  • Eric supplies a bunch of impressive stats from the game
  • Sheldon Brown’s big hit, Brian Dawkins and Asante Samuel’s defensive influence, Donovan McNabb’s passing game, Hank Baskett and DeSean Jackson as very capable receivers
  • We had a twitter question from “caffination” who asked if whether our Offense was that good or the Rams team was that bad. We say, both!
  • We talk about the Dallas Cowboys game on Monday Night Football this coming week, and what it means for the rest of the season with a victory in Dallas
