Clumsy Birds – EaglesFanCast 209

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Seattle Seahawks host the Philadelphia Eagles on a rainy Sunday evening, and it does not turn out well for our boys in midnight green and silver. The Birds drop the game 26-15. We use the term “drop” because that is what the main highlight of the Eagles game and season has been… DROPS! The main scapegoat of the Seahawks loss this week was Nelson Agholor, who dropped a few passes, and also committed a bad penalty that negated a huge reception for a touchdown by Zach Ertz. That score would have given the Eagles a 1-point lead, but instead, they had to punt, and was the catalyst in the eventual demise by the Eagles.

Very frustrating all around, when you are playing one of the best teams in the league, in their home. The Eagles hung with them from a distance, and there was a feeling for most of the game that there was still a shot, but Seattle did what they needed to do to keep the Eagles down. In the process, both Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews, Connor Barwin, and Leodis McKelvin were injured, and Vaitai (Lane Johnson’s backup) is likely out several weeks. Scary times for the Eagles.

This coming week the Eagles are back home at Lincoln Financial Field, and host the Green Bay Packers and an always-dangerous Aaron Rodgers. A lot of this game will be who on the Eagles are healthy enough to play, in addition to what Offensive scheme Doug Pederson can come up with to pump up a deflated Eagle Offense.

To all of our listeners celebrating the holiday, have a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are extremely thankful for all of you that have been listening, writing, and calling in over these past nine years. We do this for you every week, so thank you.

Eagle Talons – EaglesFanCast 208

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles win in an exciting home game against the Atlanta Falcons, 24-15. This is the fourth home win this season, where the Birds are undefeated. This week the Eagles fans were crazy loud, and unbelievably quiet when the Eagles Offense was on the field. Such an amazing and smart fan base. Love it.

The Eagles run game was on fire this week, and Ryan Mathews was the star of that game, with 109 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. Overall the Eagles runners were all in play as it helped the Eagles struggling receivers, and Carson Wentz, in a huge way. It was an excellent game plan, and executed in a great way against a very good Falcons Defense.

Speaking of Defense, the Eagles D did an excellent job keeping a Falcons Offense with plenty of weapons for QB Matt Ryan both off the field and out of the end zone, allowing just the one Falcons TD.

This was yet another positive thing for our rookie QB, as he was able to help overcome a fourth quarter deficit and come back and win the game. Exciting and fun game all around, and just another positive that makes us look forward to the future of this team.

This coming week the Eagles travel to Seattle to take on one of the best teams in the league in a very hostile road game. On paper, the Eagles seem to have little shot in this one, but we have seen some very exciting, and surprising things from this team this season. Any given Sunday is the saying, right? Surely this will be another exciting game for Eagles fans.

Giant Miscues – EaglesFanCast 207

EaglesFanCast PodcastAnother road game, another NFC East rival, and another loss for the Eagles. This has become a real issue, and this loss to the New York Giants takes the Eagles to 4-4 on the season, and a dismal 0-3 in the Division.

The main thing people have had an issue with in this loss is coach Doug Pederson’s two attempts at going for it on fourth down, when the Eagles were within field goal range for both. They failed on both attempts, and thus leaving six points on the field. Ultimately the Birds lost by five, so we see how those fourth downs affected us. The other side of that coin was that coach Pederson’s approach to the Offense was much more aggressive, and something Eagles fans have been wanting. We saw Carson Wentz going further down field with attempts, sometimes with great results, and other times with inaccurate passes (including two very early interceptions which allowed two quick scores by the Giants), or our receivers dropping passes. The latter has been an issue all season, and we are not seeing improvements at the halfway point.

This week the Eagles are home, and the Atlanta Falcons are on the docket. On paper, this appears to be a close game, with a valid chance the Eagles could come out on top. Either way, our rookie quarterback, and rookie coach, continue to develop, with the expectations of improvement.

OT Disappointment – EaglesFanCast 206

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles traveled down to Dallas to fight the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East. After some questionable play calling and dropped passes, the Eagles give up a ten point lead in the fourth quarter and end regulation in a tie. Unfortunately for the Eagles, overtime was all Cowboys, as they drove down the field and scored a touchdown to win the game, 29-23.

It was most likely a very long trip home for the Eagles, but these are some of the mistakes we expected to make this season before it started, plus on paper the Cowboys were the superior team… and we still almost won the game. Overall another division loss hurts, but the Eagles fought hard, and if it wasn’t for some crucial dropped passes and another turnover on a fumble (this time by Wendell Smallwood), the outcome would have been different.

We also discuss receiver / special teams player Josh Huff, who was arrested on Tuesday and charged with several things, including speeding, possession of marijuana, and unlawful possession of a handgun, and DUI. He was arrested on the New Jersey side of a bridge to Pennsylvania, and NJ is rather tough with gun carry laws.

This week the Eagles have another road game against an NFC East Division rival, the New York Giants, so there is no rest for this troubled team at this point in the season.

We also had a very special announcement! Steve Brown, a long-time Eagles fan and listener of our show, and friend, has joined us as our permanent third host of the show! Please welcome Steve aboard, as many of you already know him from his many appearances on the show in the past. Welcome to EaglesFanCast, Steve!

Sammy Sleeves – EaglesFanCast 205

EaglesFanCast PodcastAfter a very tough loss to the Redskins the week before, the undefeated Minnesota Vikings and former Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford come to Philadelphia. This game started slow and ugly at times, but ultimately, the Eagles Defense were all over Bradford all day, sacking him six times, causing two fumbles, and an interception. Bradford was hit many times in this game, and it really got into his head early, and often. The Eagles Defense was the star of the game, for sure, although there was a kickoff return for 98 yards for a TD from Josh Huff, and that also kind of shined.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz struggled in this game, throwing for two interceptions on the day, but continued to mature in our eyes, having the continued confidence in some tough situations on the day, despite some fumbled snaps and miscues. He’s a rookie learning the NFL, one week at a time.

The Eagles are also in the rumor mill this week with trade rumors involving Torrey Smith, as well as Alshon Jeffery. As of the time of this recording, it’s still rumors.

But let us not forget, it is Cowboy Week in Philly. The Eagles will meet the Dallas Cowboys for the first time this season, down in Texas. As we all know, the Cowboys have been playing exceptional football with rookie QB Dak Prescott who has been playing great with no interceptions on the season, so far.

By the way, Tommy Lawlor sits in with us this week, and we question the hell out of him regarding the trade rumors, the good and bad of the rumors that have been flying around regarding DeSean Jackson.
