Words barely can relate the exuberance the Eagles fans felt this past Sunday after erasing a 21-point deficit to the New York Giants. The Eagles scored 28 unanswered points and found something in them that allowed them to execute one of the best comeback victories in the history of the NFL. They put themselves firmly in first place in the NFC East with only two games left in the regular season, and now poised for a playoff berth. It was an amazing victory on all sides of the ball, and they effectively changed the way every team now views the Philadelphia Eagles. No opponent can feel confident in a win, and every Eagles player now has the confidence that they can win every game no matter the circumstance or who they are lining up against. It is a team of heart now, they believe it, and so do we.
The Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants Sunday night for a battle for first place in the NFC East. With wins coming both the Redskins and the Cowboys earlier in the day, the game became very big by the time 8:00pm rolled around. Despite a worry by some that this game would be a let down after such a tremendous and historic win the previous week over the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, the Eagles overcame some mistakes and continued bad officiating to beat the Giants by ten points. This places the Eagles atop the NFC East all alone and in the middle of the pack of the best teams now in the hunt for a playoff spot as November winds down. Vick was not at his best, and there were key end zone drops by the ol’ reliables, Jason Avant and Desean Jackson. The Eagles Defense played a great game, and although not recording a sack, had three interceptions and a fumble recovery that helped win the game. Next, the Eagles travel to Chicago and take on the Bears in a very tough, and possibly critical NFC matchup.

Our Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2010 Free Agency season not with a bang, a crackle or even a little hiss. As other teams scramble and write out big checks for star players, the Eagles organization looks within. They sign Jason Avant and Leonard Weaver, trade away Reggie Brown… and do not pick up anyone new. So far. This week we talk about how things are, how they appear, and some philosophical topics as they relate to the Eagles.
What we discussed this show:
Eagles cut favorite player Brian Westbrook a few weeks ago
Signings – receiver Jason Avant and fullback Leonard Weaver
Restructuring Stacy Andrews’ contract
Trade receiver Reggie Brown to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a reported sixth round draft pick
Todd rants about Donovan McNabb
Have the Eagles become a team that players may not want to come to, because of the Eagles Management team?
We try to sort out some of what is going on for Free Agency so far
The Philadelphia Eagles had a big week, winning their sixth straight game by defeating the Denver Broncos in Philly, welcoming back Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter, and seeing six of their players make it to the Pro Bowl. But what is bigger than this week is what they have coming up next… the Dallas Cowboys, the NFC East, and a first-round BYE in the playoffs. We do our best to break it all down from the fans’ point of view, and hear from other fans in the process as the 2009 NFL regular season comes to a close in the Eagles biggest game of the season. Hold on tight, everyone, our playoffs start this week in Dallas!
