Birds – EaglesFanCast 166

EaglesFanCast PodcastWe are back after a long and unwanted hiatus.  We do want to thank all of you for the messages during our absence, but technically and personally all is well and we are moving forward with the show.

The Philadelphia Eagles are now 3 wins and 1 loss on the season, and that loss against the San Francisco 49ers really shook Eagles fans up.  Despite the team putting up 21 points, none of those points came from our explosive Offense, which fizzled this week.  Quarterback Nick Foles had an off game, throwing two interceptions and missing several receivers.  Our very depleted Offensive Line did not protect Foles, nor were able to open the gates for Shady McCoy or Darren Sproles.  There were dropped passes and two fumbles lost to tie up a poor outing on the day.  Overall they only gained 213 yards of total Offense, of which only 22 yards rushing.  Painful.  One of the few standouts was from Jeremy Maclin, who continues to shine week after week.  The Eagles Defense did well, including a pick-six by Malcolm Jenkins in the second quarter.

Without a doubt, the standout group in the game was the Special Teams unit.  Early in the first quarter the Eagles blocked a 49er punt, which was run back for a touchdown putting the Birds on the scoreboard first in the game.  Then in the second quarter, a 49er punt to Darren Sproles amounted to an 82 yard return for a touchdown.  At that point it put the Eagles on top 21-10, with the promise the Eagles Offense would add much to that total the rest of the game.  That did not happen, and the Offense needs to figure out what went wrong, and how to fix it.  Lane Johnson returning to the lineup will be one of those fixes.

This week the Eagles are hosting the St. Louis Rams who are 1-2 on the season.  There will be a very loud crowd there to greet them at The Linc!

EaglesFanCast 116 – Eagles Crumble

The Philadelphia Eagles lose yet again, this time to the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field.  They blew a 23-3 lead and lost by a score of 23-24, for the third game in a row scoring zero points in the 4th Quarter of the game and allowing their opponent to effectively run their Offense.  The fans’ heartache and frustration were displayed as a good portion of the stadium started chanting “Let’s Go Phil-lies!  Let’s Go Phil-lies!” during the last quarter of the game.  There is blame landing throughout the organization by fans, from the players (Maclin carrying the ball like a loaf of bread and easily getting it knocked loose, Ronnie Brown deciding to pass as he is falling to the ground, and Alex Henery missing two chip shot Field Goals), to the Assistant Coaches like Juan Castillo.  But none are feeling the anger like Head Coach Andy Reid.  Most feel he bears the brunt of the blame, and already some are saying he should be fired for yet another loss and not getting the players and coaches prepared.

What we discussed:

  • Most people are blaming Andy Reid for this loss, but Eric is blaming less Reid, and more on the players mistakes
  • Injuries are now adding up and could hurt the team further
  • Emails, voice mails and feedback on Facebook and Twitter reflect the Eagles fans’ anger
  • The EFC FFL update

EaglesFanCast 115 – Giant Crash

The Philadelphia Eagles home opener against the New York Giants did not turn out the way most expected with the Eagles losing 16-29.  Many things broke down this week, including some huge coaching decisions that were questionable at best.  The run Defense continued to suffer, and player discipline also was suspect with costly dropped passes and game-changing penalties.  Quarterback Mike Vick injured his hand, originally thought to have been broken, which brought in backup Mike Kafka.  Kafka threw two costly interceptions, which sealed any kind of comeback.  It definitely ruined a fun day, with a tailgate full of pulled pork sandwiches and sausage peppers and onions made by my lovely wife!

Now the Eagles are in a situation where they have to win the next game against the 49ers, another NFC team, to both stop the slide, and regroup.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the New York Giants in the home opener and fall to 1-2, last place in the NFC East
  • Coach Andy Reid has to own the brunt of the blame for this loss
  • Mike Vick struggled badly before being injured
  • Defense still being shuffled around, trying to fix the problems
  • This week’s game against the 49ers is already a must-win game
  • A question posed: “If we could trade for a player in the league, who would it be?”
  • Thanks again to GMNortheast for loaning Eric and Chuck the Camaros
  • The EFC FFL update

EaglesFanCast 105 – Eagles Schedule 2011

After a few months’ hiatus, the show is back. Jason from Bleeding Green Nation and SB Nation Philly is on tonight and we talk mostly about the newly-released 2011 Eagles schedule. It’s so early to truly evaluate the schedule and the Eagles chances this year, especially with the uncertainty of the current NFL lockout and negotiations. Jason and Chuck touch on the lockout, and the trickle down issues having to do with player conditioning, finances and more.

Overall, we both feel that the schedule looks like a challenging one, but can be one that the Eagles can excel and prove themselves in a very public eye.  Five of the games are primetime, with three more in the later slot, so half of their schedule are nationally televised.  Eagles fans will get to see plenty of their team no matter where they are.
