It’s Not Over – EaglesFanCast 173

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers in frigid Lambeau Field, losing 53-20.  The Packers are the hottest team in the NFL now, and the Eagles had the unfortunate timing of meeting them now.  Many fans have panicked since the game, bashing quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shady McCoy, and even head coach Chip Kelly.  We are not at that point by any means.  Yes, the team under-performed on most sides of the ball this week, they turned the ball over another four times, we have our backup quarterback leading the Offense, and our star running back still has not found his 2013 form after ten games in.  They are 7-3, and tied for first place in the NFC East.  They play the Tennessee Titans in Philly this week, then close out the season with five NFC games, four of which are against the NFC East rivals.  This team can, and will, make the playoffs.  This loss is a wake up call for the team.  We have faith in the coaches to be able to pull this team together, prepare for each and every opponent the rest of the season, and produce a season we will be proud of.

Our good friend Steve Brown joins us to talk about the loss, and moving forward on the season!

It’s not over, Eagles fans… not by a long shot.  There is a lot of fun left to be had this season.  Stay tuned.

Taking Care of Business – EaglesFanCast 172

EaglesFanCast PodcastOur worries about how the Eagles would recover from losing their starting quarterback (Nick Foles), and their star defenseman (DeMeco Ryans) were put to rest as the Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 45-21 on Monday Night Football.  The Eagles fans were loud and thrilled in one of the more exciting blowout wins since, well, the Eagles took care of the Giants a few weeks ago.  The new starting quarterback Mark Sanchez made his first start in over two years, and handily used his weapons in the win, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns.  Rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews was the main target on the night, snagging both of Sanchez’s touchdown passes.  On the other side of the ball, the re-adjusted Eagles Defense had a monster night, racking up nine (!) sacks and grabbing five turnovers, with a TD or two thrown in for good measure.  That’s not all, as the Eagles Special Teams made yet another statement with Darren Sproles returning another punt for a touchdown.  It was an amazing game, with numerous positives on the night.  Is it a Sanchize?

This week, though, the Eagles have a huge test ahead of them as they take on the Green Bay Packers on the road.  It is never easy to play the Pack in Lambeau Field, and after Aaron Rodgers threw for six touchdowns this past week in the Packers’ vivisection of the Chicago Bears.  This week will show many aspects of the Eagles character, preparation, coaching, and heart.

One Win Two Losses – EaglesFanCast 171

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Eagles of Philadelphia took a huge step this week, with an increased run game, and took down the Houston Texans down in Houston, 31-21.  Starting quarterback Nick Foles again struggled with turnovers, throwing an interception which resulted in Houston running it back for a touchdown.  At the end of the first quarter, Foles was sacked, and left the game with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.  On Monday, it was confirmed that Foles has a cracked clavicle.  This is an injury that may take six to eight weeks to recover from, if not longer.  Mark Sanchez took over for Foles, and will remain the starter for the foreseeable future.  Sanchez fit right into Chip Kelly’s Offense, and helped bring the Eagles to a win.  And with another Cowboys loss, it puts the Eagles back in first place in the NFC East.

An even bigger loss on the day was in the form of DeMeco Ryans.  Ryans intercepted Texans’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and as he started to run, went down, then fumbled the ball.  What appeared to be an ankle injury was much worse, and a torn Achilles will now put Ryans on Injured Reserve the rest of the season.  This is a significant loss for the Eagles Defense, not only from Ryans’ athletic ability on the field, which has been stellar, but from a leadership role.  He’s the leader of that Defense, the person that pulls the team together, motivates, and inspires.  We will have to see how Billy Davis adjusts the D to compensate for such a huge loss.  The first thing they did is sign safety Chris Prosinski, a free agent safety who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this year.

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.

This is Fun – EaglesFanCast 168

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo, the New York Giants travel down the New Jersey Turnpike after a week of talking trash about the Eagles, come into Lincoln Financial Field and stomp on our Eagles logo…. then absolutely get whomped by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football in front of a national audience.  The Eagles, all in black, shut out the Giants, 27-0.  The last time an Eagles team shut out an opponent was 18 years ago (again it was the Giants).  This was way overdue, and it was overdue that the team came to full dominance on both sides of the ball.  Not to be out-done, Special Teams still had a partial blocked punt in the game, which they continue to shine week after week.  On Offense, quarterback Nick Foles looked better, but still has some fixing to do, as he threw two horrible interceptions, that in a normal game could have been costly.  I say “normal game” because the Eagles Defense absolutely man-handled the Giants Offensive Line, sacking Giants QB Eli Manning 8 times!!  Three of those sacks were recorded by Connor Barwin, and two by Vinny Curry.  The Defense played as great as they could, keeping the entire Giants Offense off-balance the entire game, and it was a great sight to see.  Even at the end of the game, when the Giants desperately did everything they could to get within Field Goal range… even using all three of their timeouts within the last 1:10 of regulation (douche move, Coughlin!!), the Defense was there to complete the shutout, and fully shut the lights out in the Blackout Game Sunday night.  Almost 70,000 fans were out of their minds, except for these two guys.  LOL

It was a great game, with a great ending, in a great stadium, surrounded by the greatest fans in the world.
