EaglesFanCast 64 – Welcome Back Trotter

The Philadelphia Eagles put together another impressive Offensive effort in beating the Kansas City Chiefs 34-14.  Granted it was the Chiefs, but we were able to see a confident Kevin Kolb come out and run the Offense and effectively move the ball and make very few mistakes.  It also marked the return of Michael Vick to the NFL where his role this week was more of a decoy than the much-hyped wildcat offense has led us to expect.  Also big news today was the signing of former Eagle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, who left the team, lobbied to come back, then was cut in 2007.  This Eagles organization is anything but boring since the Summer.

What we discussed:

  • Todd came to Philly and he gives his impressions of the updated tailgate
  • Eagles win big over the lousy Kansas City Chiefs
  • Kevin Kolb named NFC Player of the Week, and sets an NFL record for the first Quarterback to ever throw for over 300 yards in each of his first two starts
  • The young players stepped up and played great (McCoy, Kolb, Jackson)
  • Michael Vick makes his first regular season appearance since 2006
  • Eagles signed LB Jeremiah Trotter and released Jeff Garcia
  • What does the Trotter signing really mean to this Defense?
  • Email from Dan in England
  • Voicemail from “Cowboy”  LOL
  • Email from Pat in PA, posing a very interesting scenario
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA
  • Randall Cunningham (QB; 1985-1995) and Al Wistert (T; 1943-1951) both inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Honor Roll at Halftime
  • Email from Holden

Return of the Axe

Jeremiah Trotter back as an EagleThe Philadelphia Eagles today announced that they signed linebacker Jeremiah Trotter to a one-year deal.

This rumor of Trotter’s two workouts in Philly has had fans talking the past week, and now we will see The Axeman return to Eagles Green.  So does this mean that Trot’s just in great shape, the organization is seriously worried about the Defense, or some combination of both?

There is definitely mixed feelings on this signing, as Trotter was one of the fan favorites while he played for the Birds in his first stint, yet his age and aged knees are a cause for concern. With the BYE this week, he’ll have some time to work out with the team and possibly be ready for the Tampa Bay game.

Quarterback Jeff Garcia was let go to make room for this roster move.

We’ll talk about this and what it means to the team on tonight’s show.  You want in?  You can send an email (fans [at] eaglesfancast.net) or call our voicemail line: (856) 335-3675.

EaglesFanCast 63 – Kolb’s Debut

This week’s Philadelphia Eagles game was a big one.  It was quarterback Kevin Kolb’s debut as a starter, filling in for the injured Donovan McNabb.  It was the home opener.  It was against a very tough NFC opponent in the New Orleans Saints.  Well the Eagles rebounded off a great performance against the Panthers last week, and underachieved, made mistakes, and took themselves out of a game.  We chat about how Kolb looked out there, what went wrong with the team to lose in such an embarrassing way, the wildcat offense, and field some emails from listeners that have concerns.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to Saints 48-22
  • Kevin Kolb impressed, and we feel he finally earned his spot on the roster
  • Special Teams was just horrendous
  • Is Andy Reid losing control of the team?
  • The wildcat offense was used a lot in this game, is this the new Eagles Offense?
  • Brent Celek had a big game with 101 yards
  • Email from Dennis
  • Email from Holden
  • Email from Alex
  • We talk about the Kansas City Chiefs game this coming week
