Bears Eat Eagles Lunch – EaglesFanCast 121

First of all, I want to dedicate this week’s show to all Veterans… of every service… of every country… of every sex, creed and belief. We honor what you do so we can do things like live freely, raise families in peace and enjoy what we make of our time on this planet. Your sacrifices allowed me to grow and raise a family of my own, and allows them to do the same.  Thank you.  Come home safely, welcome home to those who have served, and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, rest in peace.

So here we are again. We discuss yet another head-scratching loss by the Philadelphia Eagles, at home, against a team they should have beaten… by less than a touchdown. The Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football beat the Eagles at The Linc 30-24 as the Eagles display the amazing ability by Head Coach Andy Reid to completely out-coach himself. What works one week cannot possibly work two weeks in a row, so the game plan that worked so effectively against the Dallas Cowboys the week before was drastically changed against the Bears.  Our Castillo-led Defense allowed the Bears to score early, and Reid appears to panic as a result, passing and no longer allowing the positive of the week before move the team forward.  (By the way, in the show I mentioned that the Bears went up 14-0, but in my head I was thinking “by two scores” and my words came out wrong.  Sorry. lol)

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose 30-24 after Reid sees his team go down 7-0 in the first quarter, and panic seems to set in.
  • We believe that there is no hope left in this season, and as a result, Andy Reid is done in Philadelphia
  • Juan Castillo ran the Defense ineffectively, allowing Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler plenty of time to find his receivers in clutch situations
  • Arizona Cardinals are coming to Philadelphia this week, and although we expect a win this week, the outlook for the rest of the season still seems dismal
  • We briefly discuss the situation that broke this week regarding sexual abuse allegations involving the football coaching staff at Penn State

Dallas Destruction – EaglesFanCast 120

How ’bout them Cowboys?! That was a thought repeated many times the past few days by many Philadelphia Eagles fans. The Dallas Cowboys sauntered into Philly for Sunday Night Football, with Rob Ryan talking his talk, and the Eagles go up by 34 points before the Cowboys scored their first touchdown, in the fourth quarter.  The Eagles did everything right in this game, from coaching, to concentration, to discipline, to playmaking.  It was one of those games as a football fan that you have to admire.  The fact that it happened against the hated Cowboys, in Philly, in front of an international audience, and with fueling the thoughts of a season comeback… well that was just icing on the cake.  Make no mistake about it, this was one of the biggest games of the season, and may have many repercussions moving forward.  No, this season is not over, not by a long shot.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles crush Dallas, 34-7 at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday Night Football, and the win was one that felt very good
  • Eagles dominated on every aspect of the game, from top to bottom
  • Jason Peters was just amazing again, and Trent Cole returned in great fashion
  • UK Steve wrote in with questions as to who we would rather have on our team: Vince Young with Shady McCoy OR Michael Vick with Ronnie Brown
  • Jason Avant angered some fans after the game with remarks about fans jumping back on the bandwagon, and he doesn’t want it
  • Shady McCoy and Desean Jackson will need to be paid, but which one should the Eagles address first?
  • The Chicago Bears come to Philadelphia this week for Monday Night Football
  • The New York Giants lose their star running back Ahmad Bradshaw for the season with a broken foot
  • We hear from a UK listener who’s site, Brit Coast Offense, picks the Eagles to take the NFC East

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?
