Turning Point? – EaglesFanCast 190

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The New Orleans Saints come to Philadelphia, also struggling in their season, and get spanked by the Eagles 39-17. Quarterback Sam Bradford started out in a  negative way, despite driving down the field, throws two interceptions in the red zone, causing much anxiety for Eagles fans everywhere. But things turn around, the Eagles Defense does their job, and then Bradford and the rest of the Offense clicks and does theirs.  The second half the Eagles outscore Drew Brees and the Saints 29-10, and put worries to bed for the week.

The next game on the schedule? The New York Giants come to Lincoln Financial Field for Monday Night Football for first place in the NFC East. This game is huge, and the Eagles need to take the momentum from the Saints win and take the Giants apart.

We discuss the Chip Kelly rumors of going to USC for more money and the opportunity he may have going back to college.

Happy Birthday to Brian Dawkins!

Stumbling – EaglesFanCast 189

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo here we go setting the stage.  The Philadelphia Eagles are struggling to start the season, already losing a division game, then get a win.  This week they go to play the Washington Redskins, another NFC East team that is struggling.  The Eagles need to win this game, come together as a team, and set the stage for the rest of the season and prove to themselves who they are.

Well that didn’t happen, and we saw more of the same from the team. We saw more mistakes, more dropped passes, more costly penalties and more lack of focus.  It wasn’t all bad, and we saw glimmers of great plays on all sides of the ball.  And that is what gives us just the smallest amount of hope for salvaging this season.

This week the New Orleans Saints come to town with Drew Brees possibly set to take apart the Eagles secondary.  They are also coming off of a win this week after their own horrible start to the season.  This is yet another opportunity for the Eagles to start down a different path this season than they started on.  We’re still discouraged, but maybe things can change.

Eagles fans are angry, though, and some are calling for Chip Kelly’s termination already.  They are hopeless at this point.  Hopefully those fans are wrong, and Chip can pull this team out of the funk that it is in.  I don’t want the organization to start with yet another coach.  Not now.

It’s the Jets – EaglesFanCast 188

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe New York Jets hosted the Philadelphia Eagles in north Jersey, and the Defense did indeed win the game.  But not the Defense that everyone was predicting. Our Eagles Defense grabbed four turnovers and kept the Jets Offense stumbling at times, not able to accomplish much.

The Eagles Offense, on the other hand, were more effective and were more of a cohesive unit, despite DeMarco Murray being out with an injury.  Quarterback Sam Bradford looked more confident, but still struggled with accuracy.  But more of a concern was the dropped passes, at least one to two of them could have been converted into touchdowns.

Chip S8Darren Sproles was another bright spot, running back a punt for a touchdown in very exciting fashion.  He’s just so damn good.

This week the Eagles take on the NFC East Division rival Washington Redskins, who, by nature, struggle.  This could be a win that gives the Eagles even more confidence moving forward, and allows them to continue to gel.  They need to get it done.

False Hope – EaglesFanCast 187

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles lost the home opener to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.  The Eagles were less than ineffective in the game, and it was unbelievable to watch.  Our Defense were able to hold the Cowboys most of the game, but the Eagles Offense could not do anything.  There was no run threat, there was no passing that could be used to get anything moving forward.  The Eagles even had a punt blocked and returned for a touchdown.

Bottom line is, nothing went right in this game.  We heard from several people this week and there was anger, depression, but everyone blamed Chip Kelly and his approach to this team.

Should we as fans hit the real panic button yet?  We’re not sure, but right now things do not look good.  They have dug themselves a big hole, and the rest of this season is not going to be easy, at all.  Our next game is on the road against a now-tough New York Jets team.  This will not be easy.

Fix It – EaglesFanCast 186

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo the first game of the 2015 NFL season did not go as planned for the Philadelphia Eagles.  The first half of the game, it seemed no one was ready to play real football.  The Atlanta Falcons went into the lockerroom at halftime with a 20-3 lead.  Our quarterback Sam Bradford was not good, our receivers could not get any separation, our running game was lackluster, and on the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons were doing just about anything they wanted.  On top of it, the veterans were committing penalties, and the entire team just looked out of synch.  The second half was a different story, for some aspects.  The Defense tightened up, well most of it, our cornerback Byron Maxwell struggled to cover Julio Jones the entire game. But Sam Bradford helped turn the Offense around, they ran better, they got first downs, the receivers got separation, and the Eagles even took the lead at one point.  But ultimately mistakes did the Birds in on the first game of the year.  A missed field goal by Cody Parkey, some costly penalties, and not catching very catch-able balls cost the Eagles a game.

This week is our first home game of the season, and none other than NFC East Division rival Dallas Cowboys are coming in.  With the Cowboys beating the Giants in Week 1, the Eagles need to take back the division, and prove that they are the team we believe they are.
