Banged Up – EaglesFanCast 212

The Washington Redskins come to Philly, and hand the Eagles a 27-22 loss. Several players left the game with injuries or cheap shots, and a few of those players are now on Injured Reserve. Overall it was not a bad or ugly loss for the Eagles, but it marked a point in yet another Divisional loss that pretty much seals this team’s season as a big loss.

We discuss many aspects of where the team is at this point, and a little of our disappointments in the team’s place in the season. They are rebuilding, that is the case, and we’ve known that for a while now. And the opinions are definitely split on the team as a whole; whether they are just bad all around with a good quarterback, or whether there is a base with several gaps to fill. Yes we are at that point in the season now, where we start looking forward to the future of the organization, and where the management can take us… eventually.

Loss to Packers – EaglesFanCast 210

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe home crowd at Lincoln Financial Field got our first loss of the season to the Green Bay Packers 27-13. It was the worst loss of the season as well, at 14 points. What that means is to date, the Eagles have hung with every team they lost to, and most of those losses were by less than a touchdown. Feel down about this loss, feel bad that the season is all but over, but Eagles fans, do not feel bad about how this season has set a standard for the organization moving forward. There is a lot of hope, even though we want that success now, not next year, or the year after that. We want that success now. But first the Eagles have to lose to the Packers, who played a better game against an Eagles team with several starters injured, and a struggling Offense with a rookie quarterback.

December has hit, meaning not only colder temps, but it means we are quickly approaching the end of the season. This means we get to watch our future quarterback Carson Wentz continue to develop week after week. Let him learn by making mistakes, getting hit, or making poor decisions. There is a lot to like in this kid, and we are riding this Wentzwagon to playoffs in the not so distant future.

The Birds fly over to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals this week. The Bengals are also struggling, and this is a game the Eagles, on paper, should win. Looking forward to getting that taste back when we take on the NFC East teams the rest of the season.

Congratulations to Jeremiah Trotter and Merrill Reese for being inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame. Both are deserving of the accolades.

Clumsy Birds – EaglesFanCast 209

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Seattle Seahawks host the Philadelphia Eagles on a rainy Sunday evening, and it does not turn out well for our boys in midnight green and silver. The Birds drop the game 26-15. We use the term “drop” because that is what the main highlight of the Eagles game and season has been… DROPS! The main scapegoat of the Seahawks loss this week was Nelson Agholor, who dropped a few passes, and also committed a bad penalty that negated a huge reception for a touchdown by Zach Ertz. That score would have given the Eagles a 1-point lead, but instead, they had to punt, and was the catalyst in the eventual demise by the Eagles.

Very frustrating all around, when you are playing one of the best teams in the league, in their home. The Eagles hung with them from a distance, and there was a feeling for most of the game that there was still a shot, but Seattle did what they needed to do to keep the Eagles down. In the process, both Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews, Connor Barwin, and Leodis McKelvin were injured, and Vaitai (Lane Johnson’s backup) is likely out several weeks. Scary times for the Eagles.

This coming week the Eagles are back home at Lincoln Financial Field, and host the Green Bay Packers and an always-dangerous Aaron Rodgers. A lot of this game will be who on the Eagles are healthy enough to play, in addition to what Offensive scheme Doug Pederson can come up with to pump up a deflated Eagle Offense.

To all of our listeners celebrating the holiday, have a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are extremely thankful for all of you that have been listening, writing, and calling in over these past nine years. We do this for you every week, so thank you.

Eagles Bear Down – EaglesFanCast 201

EaglesFanCast Podcast
The Eagles go to Chi-town, the windy city, Chicago for the national stage of Monday Night Football, to take on Jay Cutler and the Bears. It is the first big audience for Carson Wentz for his NFL rookie season. Wentz handled the Offense again like a veteran player, and not like a rookie at all. He was very exciting to see, again, with the confidence to find receivers, scramble when needed, and take the shot down the field.

Philadelphia won 29-14, on the road, on Monday Night. Impressive even though Chicago is not one of the superpowers in the NFL at this point. The Eagles offensive line protected Wentz, and there was decent blocking for the run game as well. A few in-the-hands drops by receivers (I’m looking at you, Agholor) were really frustrating to see, but overall the scheme on Offense was a very good one, and kept the Bears Defense on their heels, with Wentz passing to seven different players.

On Defense, they were very strong, holding the Bears to only 64 rushing yards, but 220 passing yards, along with a couple of sacks, an interception, and two fumbles recovered.

This week is the real test, with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming into Lincoln Financial Field Sunday afternoon. Pittsburgh is considered one of the best teams in the league after two weeks in. We will see how Wentz handles a true Defense, and how our Defense handles Ben Roethlisberger and all of his weapons.

The future for the Eagles looks bright, my friends. A future where every day is Wentzday.

Turning Point? – EaglesFanCast 190

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The New Orleans Saints come to Philadelphia, also struggling in their season, and get spanked by the Eagles 39-17. Quarterback Sam Bradford started out in a  negative way, despite driving down the field, throws two interceptions in the red zone, causing much anxiety for Eagles fans everywhere. But things turn around, the Eagles Defense does their job, and then Bradford and the rest of the Offense clicks and does theirs.  The second half the Eagles outscore Drew Brees and the Saints 29-10, and put worries to bed for the week.

The next game on the schedule? The New York Giants come to Lincoln Financial Field for Monday Night Football for first place in the NFC East. This game is huge, and the Eagles need to take the momentum from the Saints win and take the Giants apart.

We discuss the Chip Kelly rumors of going to USC for more money and the opportunity he may have going back to college.

Happy Birthday to Brian Dawkins!
