Rolling Into Dallas – EaglesFanCast 224

At the Eagles BYE week, just past the mid-point of the season, we see the Philadelphia Eagles with a 8-1 record. The Birds have won seven straight games, and have not lost a game to a team in the NFC or the NFC East. Their last three games they have won by a margin of 28 points (over Denver Broncos 51-23), 23 points (over San Francisco 49ers 33-10), and 10 points (over Washington Redskins 34-24). They are getting better as the season is going, despite four starters gone for the year.

This week is Dallas, though. A crucial game with potential playoff ramifications. Everything points to the Eagles winning this game, especially with the odd turmoil the Cowboys organization seems to be in lately. But this is the NFL, where any team seems to be able to win each week. I mean, even the Giants won a game this season.

We were all over the place in this episode, though, with not so quiet confidence in this team and what they can do. Already talking playoffs after nine games? When was the last time we had that luxury? We are all just enjoying it right now.

Niners All Wet – EaglesFanCast 223

Our Philadelphia Eagles take care of business in rainy Philadelphia on Sunday and rightfully smash the San Francisco 49ers 33-10. This puts the Eagles at 7-1, with another NFC win. It was a game they should have won, as the Niners were winless coming into the game.

At this point, the Birds are in a commanding spot with the best record in the NFL at the halfway mark of the season, with another home game this week against the struggling Denver Broncos. Denver has lost three straight games, and just changed their starting quarterback to Brock Osweiler. This could rejuvenate their Offense, causing problems for the Eagles Defense, but we still have a lot of confidence there. The Broncos Defense, on the other hand, is solid. If Wentz is consistent, this will be another win going into the BYE.

We also talk about the Eagles trade this week before the trade deadline. Eagles acquired Jay Ajayi from the Miami Dolphins for a 2018 fourth round pick. This bolsters the running game significantly as Ajayi is a physical runner and isn’t brought down easy, and can elude tackles. LaGarrette Blount pounds into the defense and gets the yards. We will have two bruising backs now, and Ajayi can also get in some extra blocking to protect Carson Wentz in the pocket.

Quality receivers, bruising running backs, and a smart and slippery quarterback. Many pieces are in place.

Controversy No More – EaglesFanCast 153

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles, led by Quarterback Nick Foles put on a horrendous display of Offense, and lost, at home, to the Dallas Cowboys 17-3.  The shock of the day (among many) was that Foles performed so poorly overall.  After stellar weeks coming in for the injured Vick, Foles started again against the Cowboys in a battle for first place in the NFC East.  Eagles fans were very hopeful for many reasons, one of which the expectation that Foles would help the Eagles break the home losing streak that goes back to September 2012.

Unfortunately the Eagles Offense played poorly, with Foles executing a professional NFL Offense like he just graduated high school.  He was inaccurate, he was hesitant to throw into coverage, he did not get rid of the ball fast enough, and he had much trouble deciphering the Cowboys’ Defensive attack.  All told, it was one of the worst Eagles games, possibly one of the worst NFL games, we have had the unfortunate luck to see.

On the more positive side, the Eagles Defense played well again, and truly seems to be improving week to week since the Broncos game back in Week 4 of the season.  Unfortunately with no Offense to put points on the board, the Eagles team was left high and dry at Lincoln Financial Field again, with our runners falling down without being touched, and players dropping passes when a pass was actually thrown to them.

All in all, we hope this was a minor stumble on the season for Foles, but we will not get to see how he recovers, as he will sit out with a concussion in the game against the New York Giants this coming Sunday.  Michael Vick will return from his hamstring injury and start the game, hoping to bring a win with him.  We all hope for that.

Manning Head – EaglesFanCast 151

EaglesFanCast PodcastOur Philadelphia Eagles beat the Division rivals New York Giants, 36-21 on the road, then Tony Romo loses the game for the Dallas Cowboys against the Denver Broncos, and the Eagles sit atop the NFC East at 2-3.  Odd, huh?

What was great to see this week is how the Eagles played well against a bad team.  They did not play down to the Giants, instead, made a lot of good plays and more importantly did not let bad plays or execution set the tone thereafter.  We saw players make some great plays, and our backup quarterback come in and lead the Eagles to a win.

Michael Vick pulled a hamstring running out of bounds on a play, and backup Nick Foles came in to lead the Offense.  It appears that Vick will need to sit this week out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well.  Foles will start and run the Offense for four full quarters, so the anticipation is high to see if he keeps his poise and executes as well as he did in New York.  Either way, the media and some fans are talking about the “quarterback controversy” in Philly… but we see none.  Vick is the team’s starter, and it is his job to lose.

Overall what we like to see is the Eagles improve as a team and individually week to week, as the players adjust to their positions, the schemes, and their weaknesses.  The last of the long road trip ends in Tampa Bay, and it is not an easy game by any means.  We will see a lot in this Eagles team, and how they play and are coached on Sunday.

There is a time for everything, and now is the time to reach out to us…

Manning Rolling – EaglesFanCast 150

EaglesFanCast PodcastWell as expected by most, the Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Denver Broncos. Not many expected the Broncos to put up 52 points, but in reality our Defense is struggling, and Peyton Manning is playing his best football ever. He also has the weapons needed to shred the struggling Eagles secondary, chew up the clock, and kept our Offense off the field.
This week the Eagles have yet another road game, and come back to the East coast to play the Division rivals New York Giants, who have yet to win a game this season. We hope to see plenty of Manningface on Sunday!

This is our 150th episode, and I wanted to say Thank You to all of our listeners for a lot of fun in our six plus years of doing this show. When we get caught up in the rest of our lives, we receive notes about doing our next show, we have listeners from all over the world that appreciate what we do, and we get even more messages that we just don’t have time to play or read each show. It’s amazing that a couple of goofballs like us can do this, and people want to listen. Seriously, thank you.

Talk it out!
