A Cardinal Blowout – EaglesFanCast 220

Our Philadelphia Eagles make a statement at the Linc Sunday, crushing the Arizona Cardinals 34-7. This moves the Birds to 4-1 on the season. Nelson Agholor was the Eagles standout receiver of the game, with four receptions for 93 yards and a beautiful touchdown. Quarterback Carson Wentz put up 304 yards in the air with four touchdowns… three of which came in the first quarter of the game alone.

This was even more important considering both the Giants and Cowboys lost this week, so the Eagles sit atop the division by themselves. With a powerful new run game, it has kept Defenses off-balance the past two weeks.

Wentz also has been doing an exceptional job at recognizing a defensive set he was not comfortable with. His audibles at the line produced positive yardage every time. The coaches are respecting Carson’s eyes and decision-making abilities more and more. The weapons are there, and the Offense has been capitalizing.

Next is a short week, as the Eagles go down the coast and take on the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are always a tough team, and depending on the Cam Newton that arrives to the game, this will not be an easy game on either side of the ball. On a short week, away game, and against another 4-1 team, this could be harder than most fans want. If it is a loss, we want the Eagles to challenge all game and lose to a better team. But a win would be huge, and would make a lot of believers.

All Charged Up – EaglesFanCast 219

The Philadelphia Eagles have a home game on the road in Los Angeles, when they visit the Los Angeles Chargers. Wait, what?

Well so many Eagles fans showed up at the game, that it was pretty much like an Eagles home game. Eagles fans booed the Chargers when they were announced, cheered “Dallas sucks!” at random times, and drowned out the “Let’s Go Chargers!” chants with “Let’s Go Eagles!”. Our Defense even raised the Birds fans cheers on third downs, and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz took it upon himself to quiet the crowd when he was working under center.

Amazing, and absolutely great.

Our cohost Todd (@tradonks) was at the game, and kept sending photos of Eagles fans, well, everywhere. The TV announcers were even talking about it.

The greatest fanbase in any sport, hands down.

Besides that awesomeness, the Eagles beat the Chargers 26-24 to go 3-1 on the season, and now sit atop the NFC East. The Eagles have won two out of their three road games, and both of the games against division rivals. The Defense forced another turnover, the Offense running game put up over 200 yards, thanks to LaGarrette Blount going beast mode this week, and star rookie kicker Jake Elliott booting four more field goals, all of them over 40 yards, with the long of 53. Overall it was a solid game, and a good win on the season.

Next the Eagles are home in Lincoln Financial Field hosting the Arizona Cardinals with QB Carson Palmer who can always be dangerous.

Scary Time of Year – EaglesFanCast 170

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles drop their second game of the season to the Arizona Cardinals 24-20 on the road.  The injured Offensive Line forced coach Chip Kelly to cut down on the running game severely, and quarterback Nick Foles attempted 62 passes on the day.  Foles also added another two interceptions on the season, both costly.  He is definitely struggling this season in big ways, and the concerns are that he is not fixing what is wrong from week to week.  On top of that, the Eagles secondary are giving up big plays every game, where they are getting beat, or not even putting up much of a defense when balls are incoming.  Regardless, the Eagles of Philly are 5-2 on the season, and second place in the NFC East as we approach the halfway point of the season.  The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Washington Redskins, which keeps the lead tight.  We’d be silly if we didn’t mention Jeremy Maclin’s standout performance this week, who caught 12 of Foles’ passes for an amazing 187 yards and two touchdowns.  A stellar performance.

Todd shares his experiences at the tailgate and then in the stadium itself this week, as he was there at the Eagles-Cardinals game.  He definitely wasn’t alone in green, as there were easily 10,000 other screaming Eagles fans at the game in the desert.  They were easily heard and seen on the TV coverage, and it made all of us proud.

This week the Eagles remain on the road, and head to Houston to take on the Texans.  On paper the Texans are the weaker team, and the Eagles get back a few players that have been out with injuries, most notably Darren Sproles and Jason Kelce.  It’s good to see Kelce getting back, but Todd Herremans’ torn biceps might limit his effectiveness, but if anyone can play through that pain, it’s Herremans.

BYE Week Loss – EaglesFanCast 169

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe BYE week is upon us, and we all missed our Eagles playing this week.  The good thing about the BYE is that the team rested, and some of our injured players nursed their wounds another week without missing play time.  In their absence, though, the Dallas Cowboys won yet another game (against the New York Giants), going to 6-1 on the season, and shifting the Birds to second place in the NFC East.  This week we have both Tommy Lawlor and Steve Brown on with us to talk about the Eagles season to date, and how other teams in the league are lining up so far.

This week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals will be a very tough showing for Nick Foles, Shady McCoy, and the rest of the Offense, as the Cardinals have one of the better Defenses in the league.  The BYE week time off will rejuvenate the team, and if we get the running game established early, the Eagles Defense will keep the Cardinals’ Offense in check, and the Eagles will win the game down in Arizona.

We talk about a bit of the history of the Fly Eagles Fly fight song, and how it has become part of the heart of the Eagles team and fans everywhere.  Quarterbacks past and present, mobile and pocket, are also discussed and what seems to work and where they don’t.  It depends on the QB and his weapons, and it all factors in.

Green is the New Black – EaglesFanCast 159

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles win their fourth straight game, this time at home defeating the Arizona Cardinals 24-21 and moving to 7-5 on the season.  With the Cowboys win on Thanksgiving day, that keeps both teams tied for the NFC East, but with the Cowboys having the edge due to Division record.

The win over the Cardinals did come with concerns as the Eagles Offense again seemed to sputter and underperform in the fourth quarter.  Quarterback Nick Foles threw for three more touchdowns with no interceptions, but made some mistakes in the game I’m sure he would have wanted to take a mulligan on.  But that’s ok, it’s part of the learning process for a young player.  Foles has shown much more positive in his play than negative, and he continues to show confidence and poise of players in the league many more years than he.

On the flip side, we saw the Eagles Defense continue to impress, with yet another excellent showing by Trent Cole.  Cole had another two sacks, a forced fumble, and was pressuring Cardinals’ QB Carson Palmer all game.  That made such a difference in the Cards’ Offense, it is a testament to both the play of Cole and Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis.

So at the beginning of December, we are now talking very seriously about the Eagles in the playoff hunt.  What a difference a year makes.  Eagles football continues to be fun, and we are enjoying this ride as far as it takes us.
