Eagles Bear Down – EaglesFanCast 201

EaglesFanCast Podcast
The Eagles go to Chi-town, the windy city, Chicago for the national stage of Monday Night Football, to take on Jay Cutler and the Bears. It is the first big audience for Carson Wentz for his NFL rookie season. Wentz handled the Offense again like a veteran player, and not like a rookie at all. He was very exciting to see, again, with the confidence to find receivers, scramble when needed, and take the shot down the field.

Philadelphia won 29-14, on the road, on Monday Night. Impressive even though Chicago is not one of the superpowers in the NFL at this point. The Eagles offensive line protected Wentz, and there was decent blocking for the run game as well. A few in-the-hands drops by receivers (I’m looking at you, Agholor) were really frustrating to see, but overall the scheme on Offense was a very good one, and kept the Bears Defense on their heels, with Wentz passing to seven different players.

On Defense, they were very strong, holding the Bears to only 64 rushing yards, but 220 passing yards, along with a couple of sacks, an interception, and two fumbles recovered.

This week is the real test, with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming into Lincoln Financial Field Sunday afternoon. Pittsburgh is considered one of the best teams in the league after two weeks in. We will see how Wentz handles a true Defense, and how our Defense handles Ben Roethlisberger and all of his weapons.

The future for the Eagles looks bright, my friends. A future where every day is Wentzday.

On the Wentz Wagon – EaglesFanCast 200

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The new Philadelphia Eagles make their debut hosting the Cleveland Browns, with new head coach Doug Pederson, new coaching staff, several new players on all sides of the ball, and our new rookie quarterback, Carson Wentz.

This is what many fans wanted to see, and none of us were disappointed. In interviews through the preseason, and analysts’ evaluations, it has been nothing but positive outlooks for Wentz developing into a quality quarterback. His debut was fantastic. Stats aside, he ran the Eagles Offense like a veteran would. He was confident, aware of his surroundings, and never seemed to panic. Yes, this was against the Cleveland Browns, one of the worst Defenses (and teams) that the Eagles will meet this season, and we have no delusions that the Eagles are a playoff team. This game was about our new coach, and new quarterback. This game was about getting Wentz out there in a stressed, real situation behind his Offensive Line. This was about new Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz and his revamped Defense. And this was about Doug Pederson, and how he was able to bring together his staff and team and start a new season with hope for the future.

Wentz is the New Man – EaglesFanCast 199

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The NFL regular season starts on Thursday evening, and our Philadelphia Eagles play the first game on Sunday, in Lincoln Financial Field against the Cleveland Browns. This week Todd and I are joined by our original co-host Eric Grigg, and our long-time friend Steve Brown (aka UK Eagles Fan) as we break down the latest Sam Bradford trade, Carson Wentz being named the new starting quarterback, how we see Doug Pederson moving forward, Howie Roseman’s brilliant preseason personnel maneuvers, and play around with how the season schedule looks.

We are truly excited to see how this new team and coaching system will work out. It is yet again another exciting time to be an Eagles fan, albeit this time with no expectations of the team making the playoffs. What we are seeing is all part of a rebuilding process, and it will take patience on our part as fans. It is not something we have a lot of, granted, but we are happy to see the organization making commitments that will bring the team back to playoff caliber in the coming years.

The 2016 Eagles season is about to get started, EaglesFanCast has now hit 199 episodes, and we are thrilled to continue to bring the fun to Eagles fans the world over. Thank you all, and let’s enjoy the team and the season. Go EAGLES!!

Eagles Pre-Draft 2016 – EaglesFanCast 198

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The NFL Draft is approaching fast. In fact, it’s next week, starting Thursday, April 28th.

We have once again secured the illustrious Tommy Lawlor (@lawlornfl) to talk Eagles Draft!

This is the time of year that we all feel the new Philadelphia Eagles season begins.  The 2016 NFL schedule was announced last week, but this is the point where the new blood of players get picked to play for our team.  The young guys, the potential superstars, and the cogs in the machine that can ultimately bring our Eagles to a Super Bowl.  It’s the time of year we, and every NFL team fan, has hope, and excitement, and this is when it starts.

Tommy feels the Eagles will take quarterback Carson Wentz in the 8th pick of the first round. That is, of course, if Wentz is still there at eight.  CB Vernon Hargreaves is who the Eagles could take if he’s gone.  We talk about many of the prospects, including Jared Goff, Myles Jack, Vernon Hargreaves, Ezekiel Elliott, Jalen Ramsey, Javon Hargrave, Adam Gotsis, and Kevin Byard.  We also go into what the Eagles have already done in this offseason, where the needs still exist, and the biggest unknown, our new head coach, Doug Pederson.

Next week is going to be a lot of fun, and we cannot wait for it to get here.  A new Eagles team is upon us.

Chip Kelly Fired – EaglesFanCast 197

EaglesFanCast Podcast

Well the Philadelphia Eagles season was ended in embarrassing fashion with the Washington Redskins crushing the Birds in Philly, racking up yet another loss at home.

But what overshadows this loss, and the loss of the season, is that the Eagles organization, namely Jeffrey Lurie, fired head coach Chip Kelly today unexpectedly.  We, along with Eagles guru Tommy Lawlor, discuss the why’s, how Kelly lost the will of some players, and the rest of the circumstances surrounding this untimely development.

Fans so far on social media seem to be overwhelmingly for this move by the team, with not much sympathy for Chip.  We of course start the speculation, with Todd thinking Jon Gruden returns to Philadelphia, and Tommy is interested in the Saints’ Sean Peyton.  Many names are eventually mentioned, and you can catch them all on the audio!  Chuck’s pick is Tommy, so let’s #HireTommy.

Oh yeah, there is one final game in the 2015 NFL season.  The Eagles play the New York Giants in a meaningless game.  The temporary head coach for that game is Pat Shurmur.

It is never boring being an Eagles fan, is it?  It may be painful at times, disappointing at others, and exciting as well, but it is never, ever boring being an Eagles fan.
