EaglesFanCast 62 – Panther Smackdown

The Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 38-10 in a bittersweet win as we also lose our quarterback Donovan McNabb to a broken rib on a late touchdown run.  The Eagles make a lot of moves with some familiar names in the last day in response to McNabb’s injury. Jeff Garcia returns to the Birds, Michael Vick is activated so he can start practicing, and to make room, Guard Shawn Andrews is placed on the IR and Wide Receiver Hank Baskett is cut. An overwhelming news day, and we bring it all to you in typical Green style.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles rout the Panthers 38-10
  • New Defensive Coordinator Sean  McDermott called a great game and alleviated any concerns that he can lead this Defense through the year
  • Trent Cole looked amazing
  • McNabb’s injury play is debated
  • Quarterback Kevin Kolb didn’t impress (again) and he now has the opportunity of his young career this coming week against the New Orleans Saints
  • Email from Dennis from Gettysburg, PA
  • Brian Westbrook’s option was not signed by the Eagles today, leaving him a free agent in 2010
  • Jeff Garcia in, Hank Baskett out, Shawn Andrews out and Michael Vick activated
  • Sheldon Brown had two interceptions in a great performance
  • We talk further about the Saints coming to down this week

Breaking: Shawn Andrews Placed on IR

According to the Philadelphia Eagles website, tackle Shawn Andrews was placed on Injured Reserve today, thus ending his 2009 season that never began.  Now there’s room for Eagles new/returning quarterback Jeff Garcia on the roster… at least for a couple of weeks.  Andrews appeared ready for the season, and talked it up in the weeks leading up to the opener against Carolina.  Unfortunately it appears the recurring back issues were worse than thought.  Now the Eagles have to figure out what to do yet again to fill in his shoes.

This has to bring up the questions (again) as to how long the Eagles will carry Andrews, and if this is his last mention as an Eagle until we hear that he is cut.  With repeated back and other issues on his resume as an Eagle, and the high priority of protecting your quarterback, the Eagles have to analyze what is at their disposal.  Do they have the confidence in Winston Justice to get the job done the entire season?  How can the Eagles continue to carry a player that has played only two games in two seasons?

EaglesFanCast 58 – Michael Vick?

So the Philadelphia Eagles sign veteran quarterback and convicted felon Michael Vick last week.  The news rips into fans in a huge way, making national news, segmenting the loyal fanbase, and pushing all of the emotions of fans and non-fans of the Eagles and the NFL in general.  Anger, confusion, shock, disgust and acceptance flooded the print and online media.  We share our thoughts, and a bunch of emails that came in.  Thank you everyone!

What we talked about:

  • Michael Vick, yeah, that’s just about it

EaglesFanCast 57 – RIP Jim Johnson

Jim JohnsonWe’ve taken a few months off, and it was a slow Eagles news time anyway, but we are back.

Unfortunately, we record this episode with heavy hearts, as long-time Eagles Defensive Coordinator, Jim Johnson, passed away today.  He had been battling cancer for a while, and was 68.  We will never forget what he did for the players, coaches and fans of this organization, and we wish his family all the best during this very hard time.

The Philadelphia Eagles website has an amazing tribute to the best Defensive Coordinator the organization, and perhaps the NFL, has ever had.

What we talked about:

  • We remember Jim Johnson, who passed away today.
  • Sean McDermott, the new Eagles Defensive Coordinator named last week, is young and has to gain the respect of the players
  • WR Jeremy Maclin has not signed yet, but there are no worries
  • Training Camp talk: Brian Westbrook looks great, Stacy Andrews is a monster, Shawn Andrews looks like his old self, and Donovan McNabb is having fun
  • Eagles Flight Night is this Sunday – Chuck and Eric will be going, so say hi
  • We talk a little Phillies… we can’t help it, it’s a Philly thing
  • Email from Phil – he has the same thing most Eagles fans are feeling right now: is excited, but has reservations

A listener of the show, Bob, bought the Red Bell Brewery bar from Veterans Stadium, and is now selling it.  It’s 10′ high, 7′ wide, and 10′ deep.  A picture is below.  If you are interested, send Chuck an email, and I’ll hook you up with Bob’s contact info.

Red Bell Brewpub
One last thing, web aficionado and all-around good guy, Drew Olanoff, was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. Not one to sit back and do nothing, he turned his passion for life and the web on the cancer itself. If you are on twitter, chances are you have seen people blame Drew’s cancer  for many things in their own lives.  Drew’s created the “Blame Drew’s Cancer” movement where  he has partnered with Livestrong, and hopes to get sponsors to donate a dollar for every time someone blames Drew’s cancer for something.  If you’re on twitter, go ahead.

We’re back, so too should you be:

EaglesFanCast Episode 53 – Eagles Offseason Yawns

Wow the Philadelphia Eagles offseason seems long this year, doesn’t it? A bunch of heartfelt losses and nothing exciting on the signing front (with no offense meant to Stacy Andrews or the others). The Eagles did sign fullback Leonard Weaver, which fills a big hole on Offense and definitely helps the running game on a few levels. Other than that it’s been rumors, speculation and a few low-impact signings. This show, our friend Jason from Bleeding Green Nation stops in to chat with us about what’s been going on with the Eagles for the last few weeks. We also hit on various players and address a few rumors about some big profile players.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles signings: FB Leonard Weaver, S Rashad Baker and S Sean Jones
  • Eagles still have a lot of holes to fill
  • The team is conservative with their money, but have gone out and spent big in the past
  • Email from Aussie Eagle re: the Eagles signing all of these players to one-year deals
  • Weaver is definitely the best acquisition so far this offseason
  • Eagles President Joe Banner talked with WIP’s Howard Eskin
  • Brian Dawkins’ leadership role in Denver
  • Rumor prospects: Anquan Boldin and Braylon Edwards
  • Thanks to Todd, we get into a Donovan McNabb talk again
