Philly Jawn – EaglesFanCast 156

EaglesFanCast PodcastBack to back wins, and back to back impressive displays from our backup quarterback Nick Foles as the Philadelphia Eagles traveled to Green Bay and beat the Packers 27-13.  Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers was out with an injury, and the Eagles Defense did what they had to do to stop the Packers two backup quarterbacks from doing any kind of damage all game.  It was another fun game to watch, as even the bad passes seemed to thread needles in the Birds’ favor, and that usually doesn’t happen to the Eagles.  Foles was not perfect this time around, but still threw no interceptions, and had another three touchdown passes; two again to his favorite target Riley Cooper, and another to Desean Jackson.  Shady McCoy had a great game, running the ball all day without much getting in his way.

This week the Eagles go back home, and NFC East Division rivals Washington Redskins drive up to the Linc for the festivities.  With a big Division game, and the bad juju of a very long winless streak at home, it is a game that must be won.  After this game the team can relax for the BYE, but they have work to do first.  The Eagles fans must show up, be loud, and support the players and the team.

A Perfect Foles – EaglesFanCast 155

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles travel to the left coast and into hostile territory where they battle the Oakland Raiders.  The game had the making of disaster for the Eagles and the Offense.  So many questions before the game, especially revolving around the backup quarterback to starting quarterback flipflop because starter Mike Vick is still nursing his hamstring injury.  Backup Nick Foles was out with a concussion last week, sustained the previous week when he put up a horrendous display at home against the Cowboys.  Many wondered how he would bounce back after that huge disappointment, or if he would bounce at all.  Questions also hovered around the Eagles Defense, and whether it would continue to keep up the impressive showing and allowing few points again another week.

All questions were answered with exclamation marks at the ends when Nick Foles ties an NFL record, throwing seven touchdown passes in the game, throwing for over 400 yards, no interceptions, and only six incompletions (one less than he had TD’s).  Foles threw those TD’s to Desean Jackson, three to Riley Cooper, Zack Ertz, Brent Celek, and Lesean McCoy… wide receivers, tight ends, and running back.  Foles has weapons, all going to a win of 49-20.  The Eagles Defense kept the Raiders to only 13 points through the first three quarters, and only allowed the last touchdown with less than a minute left, also known as “junk time.”

It was more than an impressive outing by the Eagles, and a fun game to watch.  This week the Eagles travel to Green Bay, who surprisingly are playing without the injured Aaron Rodgers.  Should be interesting.

Offense None – EaglesFanCast 154

EaglesFanCast PodcastTen straight home losses for the Philadelphia Eagles, as they lose to the New York Giants, and scoring no Offensive touchdowns in two straight games.  Quarterback Michael Vick, making his return start from a hamstring injury struggled and did not look confident, then left the game re-injuring his hamstring.  We discuss how this might be the last time we see Vick lead the Offense this season, or ever in Eagle Green.

A bright spot in the game was the improving play of the Defense.  Yes, we know that it was against a horrible Giants Offense, but Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis is making the talent his has work, and has been a relative bright spot the past few weeks.  We also talk about how Eagles fans are reacting with emotion regarding head coach Chip Kelly, with many on social media and calling the sports talk stations calling for Chip’s firing.  It is way too early for something like that, and everyone needs to give all of this time.  The Eagles organization is showing it has the future in mind, with the Eagles getting a couple of Draft picks from the New England Patriots in a trade for Eagles Defensive Tackle Isaac Sopoaga.  We need to be patient.  The Eagles are where we expected them to be before the season started.  What we didn’t expect is the flashes of brilliance that stoked the fires of hope.  And right now Philadelphia is in desperate need of hope on the sports front.

A scary good connection:

Controversy No More – EaglesFanCast 153

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles, led by Quarterback Nick Foles put on a horrendous display of Offense, and lost, at home, to the Dallas Cowboys 17-3.  The shock of the day (among many) was that Foles performed so poorly overall.  After stellar weeks coming in for the injured Vick, Foles started again against the Cowboys in a battle for first place in the NFC East.  Eagles fans were very hopeful for many reasons, one of which the expectation that Foles would help the Eagles break the home losing streak that goes back to September 2012.

Unfortunately the Eagles Offense played poorly, with Foles executing a professional NFL Offense like he just graduated high school.  He was inaccurate, he was hesitant to throw into coverage, he did not get rid of the ball fast enough, and he had much trouble deciphering the Cowboys’ Defensive attack.  All told, it was one of the worst Eagles games, possibly one of the worst NFL games, we have had the unfortunate luck to see.

On the more positive side, the Eagles Defense played well again, and truly seems to be improving week to week since the Broncos game back in Week 4 of the season.  Unfortunately with no Offense to put points on the board, the Eagles team was left high and dry at Lincoln Financial Field again, with our runners falling down without being touched, and players dropping passes when a pass was actually thrown to them.

All in all, we hope this was a minor stumble on the season for Foles, but we will not get to see how he recovers, as he will sit out with a concussion in the game against the New York Giants this coming Sunday.  Michael Vick will return from his hamstring injury and start the game, hoping to bring a win with him.  We all hope for that.

In Foles We Trust – EaglesFanCast 152

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Sunshine State 31-20.  The Eagles move to 3-3 on the year, and remain tied for the top of the NFC East.  But what was most important in the game is the performance of Quarterback Nick Foles.  With Michael Vick sitting out to rest his hamstring, Foles commanded the Eagles Offense over a tough Bucs D, throwing for three touchdown passes, AND running in another.  Riley Cooper had 120 yards and a TD, DeSean Jackson had 64 yards and two TD’s, Shady McCoy added another 55 yards receiving on two receptions, and another five Eagles caught passes on the day… all adding up to Foles’ 296 passing yards.  Where was the running game?  Healthy, thanks to McCoy’s 116 yards (on 25 rushes) on the ground, with Bryce Brown also carrying five times for 20 yards.  A bunch of stats, but it proves a poing: Foles had confident command of that Offense that day.

As such, we talk about the Foles-Vick situation in Philly.  Which quarterback should lead this team moving forward?  Has Vick really lost the job, and has Foles really won it yet?  Does there need to be a change, or should the Eagles think to the future and develop Foles into the future leader they think he could be?  Right now there is no way to know what coach Chip Kelly is going to do.  It seems that Vick is comfortable sitting until his hamstring is fully healed, and why not?  Foles helped orchestrate a win over the Giants, and commanded a victory over the Bucs.

But this week there is a significant test.  The Dallas Cowboys visit Lincoln Financial Field, a place where the Eagles have not won since September of 2012.  Romo and the Cowboys Offense have put up significant points and yards, and the Eagles Defense is still not stellar by any stretch.  Whichever quarterback gets the call, they will be looking for a division win, and first place alone in the NFC East.  It’s going to be an interesting week.

There is a time for everything, and now is the time to reach out to us…
