BYE Week Break – EaglesFanCast 119

So we once again come across the Eagles BYE week, unofficially the mid-point of the Eagles season, despite only being six games in so far.  This is where, historically, fans and analysts (and hopefully coaches) assess the team, what has gone well, what has gone wrong and where things are going. We are no different, and as has been tradition, we invited our friend Jason Brewer from Bleeding Green Nation to join in on the Eagles conversation.  We talk the season so far, the Cowboys game this week, and even dip into the Donovan McNabb pool for a bit.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles grade at the BYE week has to be an ‘F’
  • We talk how the Eagles played against the Redskins
  • The Eagles have three straight Home games coming up against the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals
  • Sunday Night Football… which Dallas team will show up?
  • The Eagles need to beat Dallas to instill confidence in us
  • Out-think, not out-stink! (quote from Todd)
  • We talk a bit about Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb
  • Eric Allen and Jim Johnson will be inducted into the Eagles Honor Roll this coming Sunday in a  Halftime ceremony
  • EFC FFL update

EaglesFanCast 99 – Nothing To Worry About

The Chicago Bears beat the Philadelphia Eagles at Soldier Field on a day where the Eagles Offense, Defense, Special Teams and coaching all come up short for the team.  Despite that, and the NFC loss, we don’t see this as a tragic loss on the season, and see plenty of opportunity for the Eagles to make the December playoff run.  Playoffs?  Yes, this team that, three months ago, we saw as a rebuilding and .500 team is now poised to make a run at not only the playoffs, but also winning the NFC East.  This could be a great December for the midnight green and silver, and we are not going to let this loss bring us down too much.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lost to the Chicago Bears as they did not play well on all sides of the ball
  • Coach Andy Reid gave the team a very angry lashing after the game… well deserved
  • The Houston Texans come to Philly on Thursday night, and we see a big win
  • Email from Barry in New Jersey about how the Bears Defense is one of the only built to cover the Eagles this year
  • The Eagles red zone issues are a concern, but we hope this is fixed quickly
  • We are looking forward to a great December of Eagles football

EaglesFanCast 98 – Another Giant Win

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.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Giants 27-17 at Lincoln Financial Field, moving to the top of the NFC East
  • What are we thankful for this Thanksgiving?
  • Jason Avant and Desean Jackson’s drops came close to beating us
  • Again we take serious issues with the officiating
  • Broadcaster Cris Collinsworth was all about disrespecting the Eagles on Sunday Night Football
  • Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb options moving forward
  • The Eagles go to Chicago and take on the Bears next
  • Who will be this week’s star player?
  • EFC Fantasy Football weekly roundup
