Snow Bowl – EaglesFanCast 160

EaglesFanCast PodcastLet’s play some football in the snow!  In case you were living deep in the Caribbean this past week, you heard about the snowstorm that hit Philadelphia, dropping around eight inches of the white stuff during the game.  Reports called for an inch or two, then turning to sleet and rain in the afternoon.  They received the type of snow that made for legendary games, and the Eagles played to that caliber.  Shady McCoy set a personal and Eagles single-game record, plowing through 217 yards on the ground.  The Eagles Defense played and adjusted, and played and adjusted.  Overall they only allowed just eight points and made the Lions look like they were playing football on a snow day.

It was one of the greatest Eagles games I have ever seen, and at the time I was not believing what I was seeing at all.  Not in the Birds’ play themselves, but in the way the game played out.  It was fun, it was surreal at times, and it was a classic.  I wish I was there, but still enjoyed every second of it on the small screen regardless.  Our Eagles plowed through the snow, the Lions, and thanks to the Cowboys first step in their December implosion… first place in the NFC East.

Green is the New Black – EaglesFanCast 159

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles win their fourth straight game, this time at home defeating the Arizona Cardinals 24-21 and moving to 7-5 on the season.  With the Cowboys win on Thanksgiving day, that keeps both teams tied for the NFC East, but with the Cowboys having the edge due to Division record.

The win over the Cardinals did come with concerns as the Eagles Offense again seemed to sputter and underperform in the fourth quarter.  Quarterback Nick Foles threw for three more touchdowns with no interceptions, but made some mistakes in the game I’m sure he would have wanted to take a mulligan on.  But that’s ok, it’s part of the learning process for a young player.  Foles has shown much more positive in his play than negative, and he continues to show confidence and poise of players in the league many more years than he.

On the flip side, we saw the Eagles Defense continue to impress, with yet another excellent showing by Trent Cole.  Cole had another two sacks, a forced fumble, and was pressuring Cardinals’ QB Carson Palmer all game.  That made such a difference in the Cards’ Offense, it is a testament to both the play of Cole and Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis.

So at the beginning of December, we are now talking very seriously about the Eagles in the playoff hunt.  What a difference a year makes.  Eagles football continues to be fun, and we are enjoying this ride as far as it takes us.

post December With a Purpose – EaglesFanCast 158

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles had their BYE week this week, and the players, coaches, and fans had a much-needed breather after a roller coaster and exciting two-thirds of the season so far.  Todd and Chuck sit down with the always-knowledgable Tommy Lawlor to discuss the season so far.  Nick Foles is obviously the big news so far this season, and is making it very tough for all involved to not look at him as an exceptional player this season so far.  To come in as a backup and then lead the league in several stats, as well as be a part of the Hall of Fame?

Other than Foles’ performance, the Eagles Defense is the most satisfying surprise.  Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis brought in a new scheme to the team, and the players had some growing pains adjusting early in the season.  The run defense is still suspect, but overall they are doing a very good job in the Red Zone, and keeping the big points off the board, allowing the Eagles Offense to work and put in a solid performance.

post What’s This? – EaglesFanCast 157

EaglesFanCast PodcastWhat a football Sunday!  Your Philadelphia Eagles win their third game in a row, break the home game losing streak, and sit atop the NFC East Division going into the BYE week.

The Washington Redskins drive up to Lincoln Financial Field, most likely with a lot of confidence on Sunday.  Confidence because the first time these two teams met, the Redskins’ star quarterback, Robert Griffin III, was coming off of a major injury that sidelined him the season before.  Also, the Eagles had not won at home in almost 14 months.  We know that was something that played into the players’ heads, as a few Eagles players acknowledged it leading into the game.  Well, as we all know now, though, the game is over, the Eagles came out on top, Foles did another amazing job, our Defense bent but did not break, and ultimately the Eagles are in first place in the Division, and things feel good.  This team, including the coaches, is growing, learning, and improving together.  Let’s enjoy the ride and see where they take us.  We have two weeks to relish this latest victory, and analyze the shortcomings to this point.  I’m sure the coaches will be doing that a lot more than us.  Good.  We want the Eagles to go for the throat, and end this season as strong as they can… no mercy.

post 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.

post 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.

post 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:
