EaglesFanCast 76 – One To Go

The Philadelphia Eagles had a big week, winning their sixth straight game by defeating the Denver Broncos in Philly, welcoming back Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter, and seeing six of their players make it to the Pro Bowl.  But what is bigger than this week is what they have coming up next… the Dallas Cowboys, the NFC East, and a first-round BYE in the playoffs.  We do our best to break it all down from the fans’ point of view, and hear from other fans in the process as the 2009 NFL regular season comes to a close in the Eagles biggest game of the season.  Hold on tight, everyone, our playoffs start this week in Dallas!

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Denver Broncos, 30-27, and have won their last six games
  • Eric reads an email from AussieMike from November, who mentioned that if the Eagles went 12-4 on the season, he would walk bare-assed down Bourke Street
  • Eric talks about how Lincoln Financial Field received Brian Dawkins back home
  • We talk about Jamaal Jackson’s season-ending injury, and what it means to this Offense
  • Aussie Steve calls in a voicemail
  • How huge is this game against Dallas this week?!
  • Playoff scenarios in the NFC
  • Where we are watching the game
  • Email from Dean in Birmingham, England
  • Email from Reverend Jim in Brisbane, Australia

EaglesFanCast 75 – Playoff Bound

Our Philadelphia Eagles win their fifth straight game against the San Francisco 49ers at home in snowy Lincoln Financial Field.

  • Eagles win over the 49ers 27-13
  • Eagles Offense driving better than they were, and are much improved at this juncture in the season
  • There is still a balanced pass/run offense, and it continues to work
  • The Denver Broncos are a concern because of the potential of the Eagles players looking forward to the Cowboys game

  • The Great Snowball Fight of 2009

EaglesFanCast 74 – Giant Sweep

The Philadelphia Eagles travel up the New Jersey Turnpike for their last regular season game at Giants Stadium, and in an epic Eagles-Giants battle, win 45-38.  Not only do the Eagles sweep the Giants this year, but with the Dallas Cowboys loss earlier in the day, the Eagles wind up alone in first place in the NFC East.  All aspects of the team contributed to the victory, and the team showed an enormous amount of character in the face of a tough Giants Offense.  Our confidence builds as the regular season approaches the last few weeks, and we can start to see the playoffs in our sights.

What we discussed:

  • Explosive Offense kept the Giants Defense guessing
  • If Brian Westbrook comes back, a fear is that Andy Reid will revert to an unbalanced Offense again
  • Michael Vick is getting more comfortable out there
  • Email from Steve asking about the Vick / McNabb change in Offense and how it can confuse Defenses
  • Email from KC in Gettysburg, which sparks a conversation of the playoffs are just not enough
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA bringing up the point of the Eagles D having continued troubles tackling
  • Voicemail from DQ in NY, talking about Vick being traded for no better than a 5th round draft pick
  • Email from Alex with talk of DeSean Jackson
  • Eagles getting hot, gelling, showing balanced play calling… and we are getting sucked in
  • Watching the Cowboys self-destruct again is also worth it in December

Notes:

  • If you’re in South Jersey, stop into Swedesboro Stogies for a cigar!
  • Luis from Green Fans – The Movie called today and said that the DVD’s start shipping Wednesday morning!
  • Thanks to James in North Carolina for this week’s show name suggestion

EaglesFanCast 73 – Dream Weaver

The Philadelphia Eagles roll into Atlanta and destroy a depleted Falcons team with the help of none other than Michael Vick, who scored his first two touchdowns of the season with the win.  The Eagles also move into a tie for first place in the division after the New York Giants defeat the Dallas Cowboys.  The Eagles do not have time to reflect as they will be driving up the New Jersey Turnpike this Sunday where they will take on the Giants for another extremely important game.  We talk about all of this, handle a few emails and talk about where this Eagles team is at this point in the season.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles crush the Atlanta Falcons 34-7 in Atlanta
  • Michael Vick scores a touchdown both on the ground and through the air
  • Leonard Weaver made some amazing plays and is another Eagles weapon
  • Decent play all around from all sides of the ball this week
  • Email from Craig in upstate NY
  • We talk about some of the other NFL teams and how the season is turning out
  • Voicemail from… Jerry Jones?
  • Email from AussieSteve
  • Do we bring back Brian Westbrook, even if he’s ready?
  • Twitter topic from iconjohn… Vick as a non-factor, was it a good move by Lurie?
  • Eagles go to the New York Giants this week, big game as any Divisional game is.

EaglesFanCast 72 – Fourth Quarter Confidence

The Philadelphia Eagles post a second come from behind win in as many weeks, defeating the Washington Redskins at home.  This places the Eagles with a 7-4 record, and hot in the race for the Wild Card.  Although we see flaws with the team and have serious concerns, we explore the possibility of this team gelling and surging into the playoffs.  Now what happens when they get there is another story, but anything can happen with this NFL it seems.

What we discussed:

  • The Eagles win over the Redskins and move to 7-4
  • Can the Eagles be starting to gel and make a serious run at the playoffs?
  • Eagles sign TE Brent Celek to a contract extension
  • The Eagles moved the ball against a good Redskins Defense
  • Asante Samuel making the picks, but still not the tackles, and that is ok with us
  • The New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees just look dominating
  • Email from Dr. Krug in Gettysburg
  • Email from Dennis in Gerrysburg
  • DeSean Jackson suffers a concussion in the game, and might not play against the Falcons
  • The Eagles activate WR Jordan Norwood from the practice squad today
  • A side story we expect to see more of as the week progresses is Michael Vick’s return to Atlanta
