Eagles Draft 2012 – EaglesFanCast 129

The NFL Draft 2012 is now in the history books.  We are back with the scouting guru Tommy Lawlor to work through everything our Philadelphia Eagles did during the Draft weekend.  The Eagles went after the players they targeted, moving around in the order to get them.  We discuss how this all came about, and was each one worth it?  Overall things looked good for the team and if the new additions can make a difference this coming season, then the Eagles are an improved team overall.

Here are the Philadelphia Eagles 2012 Draft picks:

Round 1 – DT Fletcher Cox – Mississippi State, 6-4, 298 pounds
Round 2 – LB Mychal Kendricks – Cal, 5-11, 240 pounds
Round 2 – DE Vinny Curry – Marshall, 6-3, 266  pounds
Round 3 – QB Nick Foles – Arizona, 6-5, 243  pounds
Round 4 – CB/RS Brandon Boykin – Georgia, 5-9, 183 pounds
Round 5 – OT Dennis Kelly – Purdue, 6-8, 321 pounds
Round 6 – WR Marvin McNutt – Iowa, 6-3, 216  pounds
Round 6 – OG Brandon Washington – Miami, 6-3, 320 pounds
Round 7 – RB Bryce Brown – Kansas State, 5-11, 224 pounds

Eagles Pre-Draft 2012 – EaglesFanCast 128

The NFL Draft 2012 is a week away, and as in previous years we have it covered thanks to a great friend in Tommy Lawlor.  Tommy helps us weed through all of the speculations, rumors and anxious fan concerns leading up to this year’s Eagles Draft.  We discuss the year’s draft class, what the Eagles need, try to understand what Andy Reid might be thinking, and the overall approach the Eagles will take to address the needs of the team for the near future as well as the positions to be addressed a few seasons from now.  It is never easy to decipher the extremely complicated plans that all of the teams have, but there are only a few days for them to put them together and execute starting next Thursday evening.  The 2012 Eagles season may be influenced in a huge way by this Draft.

post Eagles Take A Step – EaglesFanCast 127

Well now things are getting interesting again.  The Philadelphia Eagles welcome the Jets to The Linc and trounce them 45-19, showing for the second week in a row a rather dominant Offense AND Defense.  Surprisingly, the Eagles are also still a faint glimmer in the playoff conversation, but need plenty of help the last two weeks of the season.  So no Eagles fans all over are at odds with their feelings on the team; those wanting head coach Andy Reid and Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo gone at any cost, and those that really enjoyed the Eagles teams that showed up the past two weeks.  It’s a very interesting thing that is going on in this regard, as all fans still bleed green, but are just disgusted at how the team as a whole played most of the previous twelve weeks.  Joining us this week is a return guest, Steve Malinowski from Tailgate365.com!

We want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday, no matter what holiday you celebrate, where, or with whom.  Enjoy your family, friends and cherish the good times.  Happy Holidays Eagles fans!

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the New York Jets 45-19, winning their second straight game
  • Fans battle themselves in where their loyalties on the team lie, resulting in winning or losing
  • Are the Eagles coaches safe yet?
  • Jason Babin is a beast, being all over the Jets quarterback this week and now leading the NFL in sacks this season
  • Be a Jets fan this week!
  • It would be so sweet for the Eagles to walk into Dallas’ big house and play the spoiler this week
  • EFC FFL Upate – the championship is on us and your two EFC cohosts battle it out for the title!

 

Go JETS! Go EAGLES!

post There’s A Chance – EaglesFanCast 126

The Philadelphia Eagles return to their winning ways and defeat the Miami Dolphins in Miami, 26-10.  Although the Eagles played decidedly well in the game, one of the highlights was definitely the 20,000 Eagles fans that had quite a large voice and made themselves heard in Miami.  It was an absolutely awesome display and made all Eagles fans proud.  Overall, as we knew, the Eagles need to win out and get a lot of help to have a shot at the playoffs, and they took a small step this week in the win.  The New York Giants also beat the Dallas Cowboys which also helped the Eagles keep the chance alive.

What we discussed:

  • UK Steve Brown joins Chuck this week!
  • Eagles beat the Dolphins and keep the remote playoff hopes alive
  • Eagles fans still hold hope and get a step closer
  • Michael Vick returns as quarterback this week and he ran a more efficient Offense
  • The Defense impressed and kept the Dolphins to only three points the entire second half
  • Some excellent emails and voicemails that injected some great points
  • The New York Jets come to Philadelphia this coming week, and the concern is high, as the Eagles have not played well at home all season
  • EFC FFL Upate – the playoffs are here!

post The Beast – EaglesFanCast 125

The Philadelphia Eagles fall to a horrendous 4-8 on the season after a 31-14 embarrassing loss to the Seattle Seahawks.  Ironically enough the Eagles are NOT mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet, as all three of the other NFC East teams, the Cowboys, Giants and Redskins all lost this weekend. To talk about this hapless division in the NFL, we have Jimmy Klempski from Blogging the Beast on the show.  Jimmy is also a contributor to Bleeding Green Nation.  We talk about the continued demise of this Eagles team, where some of the blame lies, and how the team needs to approach things heading out of this season.  But wait!  Despite the fact that the NFL Draft is even discussed at one point, there are still four regular season games left to play. This week is the Miami Dolphins, but do we dare even think about the possibility of things turning around for the Eagles, or are they too far gone at this point?

What we discussed:

  • Jimmy Klempski from Blogging the Beast joins us this week!
  • Eagles lose to the Seattle Seahawks 31-14 and are now 4-8 on the season
  • The Eagles’ problems are on all levels of the team
  • Eagles Quarterback situation is NOT good
  • What are the Eagles chances?
  • We have a voicemail that defends Reid, and we address it
  • Moving forward as a franchise might need quite a bit of housekeeping
  • EFC FFL Upate – the playoffs are here!

post Fire Andy – EaglesFanCast 124

The Philadelphia Eagles lose yet another home game, this time being embarrassed by the New England Patriots who methodically picked the Eagles apart like the Birds were a high school team. Yet the Patriots team is just a shadow of years past and the Eagles team is a professional football team with preseason aspirations of the Super Bowl. No more, as this loss essentially cements the team as one of the biggest disappointments in franchise history… and that says a lot. After squandering a 10-0 early game lead, the Patriots score three unanswered touchdowns. But the climax of the game occurred in the third quarter when about a quarter of the fans in attendance started chanting “Fire An-dy! Fire An-dy!”  Make no mistake about it, it was loud, and it was intentional. It sent a direct message not only to Andy Reid, but to Eagles owner Jeff Lurie. The chant again arose in the fourth quarter as the team continued to implode under Reid’s girth. To underscore the frustration and message, with just over eight minutes left in the fourth quarter, about half of the fans stood in unison and walked out of the stadium… out on the players, out on the coaches, and out on the owners. At the end of the game, there were almost as many Patriots fans in attendance as there were Eagles fans… something I never thought I would ever see.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles fans sent an audible message to coach Andy Reid and owner Jeff Lurie at the Eagles game during yet another home loss
  • What do fans have to do to get Lurie’s attention?
  • Some fans have declared not to buy or ask for any Eagles gear during this Holiday season as a way of hurting the bottom line of the Eagles organization
  • This season is unequivocally over, despite not being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention yet. Anyone still holding out hope of a December race is fooling themselves
  • Andy Reid has lost complete control of this team, with players not committing to playing their best, penalties and mental mistakes, and even coaches arguing on the sidelines… it just shows how far this team has fallen
  • The frustration is now done, and Eagles fans now only hope that Reid will no longer be the coach of their team in 2012
  • The Eagles now have a very short week, traveling across the country to Seattle to play the Seahawks on Thursday night

post Manning Face! – EaglesFanCast 123

As the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles NFL season continues in all of its dual personality, our own Eagles defeat the NFC East 1st place New York Giants in a game that came down to the final minutes.  The culmination of the game was backup Quarterback Vince Young, playing for injured Michael Vick, led his Offense on an 18-play drive for a touchdown that lasted 8:51, breaking the tie and going up 17-10.  Not long after, the Eagles Defense, which dominated most of the game, forced an Eli Manning fumble, stopping the Giants’ drive, and allowing the Eagles to win the game.  What was impressive was that the Eagles starting quarterback (Vick) and wide receiver (Maclin) were both out with injuries, allowing Young and Riley Cooper to fill their shoes, and they did it well. The Eagles won this game in the fourth quarter, something they have struggled with horribly this year, losing five games when leading in the fourth.  It sounds like a great win, and it was, not because of how the game was played, because there were plenty of mistakes and was ugly at times, but because we were able to see the Eagles dig down and do what they HAD to do to win.  The game was played with heart and determination, and we hope that carries the rest of the season that has so far brought disappointment.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles Defense stepped up big
  • Shady McCoy again had a great game, despite the Giants “stopping” his cutbacks most of the game
  • Riley Cooper had a great game in the WR spot for the injured Maclin, and caught his first touchdown pass
  • Vince Young should assume the locker room leadership role and mentor Vick and the team
  • Eagles have to cover two tight ends on the Patriots this week, and there is much concern for this
  • EFC FFL update
