EaglesFanCast 93 – West Coast Win

The Philadelphia Eagles stay tied atop the NFC East with a win over the hapless San Francisco 49ers. Quarterback Kevin Kolb, playing for the injured Michael Vick, played with confidence behind an Offensive Line that sustained even more losses to injury. Speaking of injury, running back Lesean “Shady” McCoy started with a broken rib and contributed 138 total yards with a touchdown. Andy Reid had even more questionable coaching decisions that make us scratch our heads and the Eagles secondary fell asleep in the fourth quarter of the game, almost allowing the 49ers to build a comeback. Regardless of the negatives, the Eagles are now 3-2 on the season, and host the Atlanta Falcons this coming week in Philadelphia.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles win over the San Francisco 49ers 27-24
  • DT Brodrick Bunkley out for the season with elbow ligament damage, but there are now conflicting reports
  • LT Jason Peters injured his knee and may have an MRI on it
  • King Dunlap was horrible, and needs to find a way to stop the pass rushers
  • Kevin Kolb looked comfortable and more confident, scanning his receivers before unloading his passes
  • Shady McCoy is just an incredible talent
  • The Dallas Cowboys lost again, and the NFC East giggled
  • The Eagles have a lot of work to do on the O-line and D-lines, especially this week against the Falcons

EaglesFanCast 92 – Andy Reid Goofed

In what amounted to a disaster of a game, the Philadelphia Eagles lose at home to the Washington Redskins. Donovan McNabb’s homecoming was not what anyone predicted, with more Eagles players going down with concussions and broken bones, more poor officiating, some laughable coaching and penalties all adding up to a poor Eagles showing in front of a worldwide audience. McNabb performed badly, but it was the Redskins running game that won the game. Eagles latest starting quarterback, Michael Vick, went down with a rib cartilage injury, and Kevin Kolb came in off the bench. In what was arguably the game-losing moments, Head Coach Andy Reid flubbed clock management and play calling before the half, which resulted in a Field Goal instead of a potential touchdown. Reid’s ultimate explanation for the decisions was, “I goofed.”

What we discussed:

  • We start off with addressing Andy Reid’s debacle of clock management… “I goofed”
  • We take a look at the next couple of weeks in the schedule
  • The injuries continue to add up for the team
  • Our expectations of the team as this being a rebuilding year are now back in line
  • We talk about the tailgate this week with Todd flying in and also listener Brian from Colorado came and hung out with us
  • Wrap up with some EFC Fantasy Football talk

Greetings From Across The Pond!

Hello Eagles fans in Philadelphia and all around the world. My name’s Steve Brown and I’m delighted to be able to introduce myself as the latest contributor to EaglesFanCast.

I’ve been following the Birds since 1989 when the team traveled to London for a pre-season exhibition game against the Cleveland Browns. At that time, us Brits couldn’t enjoy more than an hour of NFL TV coverage every week and the only way to learn the game was from paperback books which took a great deal of patience!

Thankfully, the advent of the internet has revolutionised the NFL for fans abroad. We can keep right up to date with all the latest news via various websites and, of course, blogs and podcasts. We can also watch every Eagles game online, though it does sometimes require staying up all night because of the time difference!

I was lucky enough to witness the Eagles victory at the Meadowlands in 2001 as well as all three NFL International Series games at Wembley. I’m especially looking forward to Brian Dawkins’ trip over here in October when the Broncos take on the 49ers. Hopefully, a trip to the Linc isn’t too far away. I managed to take in a Phillies game last summer, but it can’t compare to the atmosphere across the street, surely?!

I’d like to thank Chuck, Eric and Todd for this fantastic opportunity. I’m a bit of a stats geek and I love to discover interesting tidbits which now I’ll be able to share with all of you.

Cheers from the UK and GO BIRDS!

EaglesFanCast 74 – Giant Sweep

The Philadelphia Eagles travel up the New Jersey Turnpike for their last regular season game at Giants Stadium, and in an epic Eagles-Giants battle, win 45-38.  Not only do the Eagles sweep the Giants this year, but with the Dallas Cowboys loss earlier in the day, the Eagles wind up alone in first place in the NFC East.  All aspects of the team contributed to the victory, and the team showed an enormous amount of character in the face of a tough Giants Offense.  Our confidence builds as the regular season approaches the last few weeks, and we can start to see the playoffs in our sights.

What we discussed:

  • Explosive Offense kept the Giants Defense guessing
  • If Brian Westbrook comes back, a fear is that Andy Reid will revert to an unbalanced Offense again
  • Michael Vick is getting more comfortable out there
  • Email from Steve asking about the Vick / McNabb change in Offense and how it can confuse Defenses
  • Email from KC in Gettysburg, which sparks a conversation of the playoffs are just not enough
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA bringing up the point of the Eagles D having continued troubles tackling
  • Voicemail from DQ in NY, talking about Vick being traded for no better than a 5th round draft pick
  • Email from Alex with talk of DeSean Jackson
  • Eagles getting hot, gelling, showing balanced play calling… and we are getting sucked in
  • Watching the Cowboys self-destruct again is also worth it in December

Notes:

  • If you’re in South Jersey, stop into Swedesboro Stogies for a cigar!
  • Luis from Green Fans – The Movie called today and said that the DVD’s start shipping Wednesday morning!
  • Thanks to James in North Carolina for this week’s show name suggestion
