Chip Kelly Fired – EaglesFanCast 197

EaglesFanCast Podcast

Well the Philadelphia Eagles season was ended in embarrassing fashion with the Washington Redskins crushing the Birds in Philly, racking up yet another loss at home.

But what overshadows this loss, and the loss of the season, is that the Eagles organization, namely Jeffrey Lurie, fired head coach Chip Kelly today unexpectedly.  We, along with Eagles guru Tommy Lawlor, discuss the why’s, how Kelly lost the will of some players, and the rest of the circumstances surrounding this untimely development.

Fans so far on social media seem to be overwhelmingly for this move by the team, with not much sympathy for Chip.  We of course start the speculation, with Todd thinking Jon Gruden returns to Philadelphia, and Tommy is interested in the Saints’ Sean Peyton.  Many names are eventually mentioned, and you can catch them all on the audio!  Chuck’s pick is Tommy, so let’s #HireTommy.

Oh yeah, there is one final game in the 2015 NFL season.  The Eagles play the New York Giants in a meaningless game.  The temporary head coach for that game is Pat Shurmur.

It is never boring being an Eagles fan, is it?  It may be painful at times, disappointing at others, and exciting as well, but it is never, ever boring being an Eagles fan.

Shock the World – EaglesFanCast 196

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The New England Patriots, only one loss on the 2015 season.  The Philadelphia Eagles, seven losses on the season, three of which in just the last three weeks.  The Patriots lost last week, and haven’t lost two straight games in forever.  The game’s stage is at Gillette Stadium.  No one expected the Eagles to win this game.  No analysts, the game’s announcers, and even most Eagles fans.

How could we?  After the display the Eagles performed the last three weeks especially, and with Sam Bradford coming off an injury.  The Eagles Defense, allowing 110 points in the last three losses going against a Tom Brady who has something to prove this season and has been remarkable for most of it.

But the Eagles dug down deep.  Very deep.  They executed.  They put pressure on Brady.  Our Offense ran it down the Pats’ throats, but with different guys.  Chip Kelly adjusted for this game, and had a plan.  It took Defense and a ridiculous Special Teams to beat the Patriots this week, and thanks to losses by the Giants and Redskins… into a 3-way tie for the sad NFC East.  Come on, with a 100-yard pick-6, a punt return for a touchdown, AND a blocked punt for a touchdown… ALL IN THE SAME GAME!  It was an amazing game to watch, and gave Eagles fans something huge to cheer for.  This season is not over yet, and there is plenty of football to play, and yes, cheer for.

Not Out Yet – EaglesFanCast 195

EaglesFanCast Podcast

So the Philadelphia Eagles have lost three straight games, are now 4-7 on the season, and yet, somehow, are only a single game out of first in the NFC East.  Don’t count them out just yet!!  Yes, I’m laughing while I typed this. Things have gone from bad to worse for this Birds organization, and with the Defense giving up five passing touchdowns in each of the last two games to the Lions  (with quarterback Matt Stafford) and Buccaneers (QB Jameis Winston) has taken away much of the hope for a recovery on this season.  Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez has not done well at all, and even shut the voices of the Sam Bradford haters.  Right now it’s all doom and gloom for Eagles fans, as we cannot believe what we are seeing.  The rumors of Chip Kelly entertaining the idea of going back to college have started huge again, even prompting the Eagles head coach and General Manager to publicly address it… something he really shouldn’t have to.

The irony in all of this is that the Eagles are not out of the playoff picture, even with this record, and starting December!  The NFC East, the worst division in the NFL, has a tie for first between the Giants and Redskins, with a record of 5-6.  The Cowboys are pretty much officially done now that Romo is out for the rest of the season, the Giants can’t get a consistent act going, and the Redskins are still headed by Dan Snyder… enough said.

It doesn’t get easier now, as the Eagles face the Patriots on Sunday in New England.  Winter is coming.  The Eagles better bundle up.

Philly Sportscasting – EaglesFanCast 193

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles were off this week, and for our BYE Week show, we have a reunion of sorts with the hosts of the podcast formerly known as Philly Sportscast!  Dave, Derek, and E-money join us to talk about the state of the Eagles at the BYE, where we think the team will do the rest of the season, the mentality of the Eagles fan, and what this team has to do moving forward.

Sam Bradford, Chip Kelly, McNabb, Mark Sanchez, Andy Reid, and DeMarco Murray were all hot topics in this disjointed and frequently loud conversation among Eagles fans.  One thing we all agree on is that this week in Dallas is the whole season for the Eagles, as the team cannot afford to lose another NFC East game.  We also give our predictions, talk about New Jersey, Bucks County PA, and hear a story about L.A.

One last thing, Dallas sucks, and the Eagles win.

Dropped Opportunities – EaglesFanCast 192

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles lose to the undefeated Carolina Panthers down in Carolina 27-16. With the Giants winning over the Cowboys the Giants move into first place, and the Eagles have to sit with this loss for the next two weeks, as this coming week is a much-needed BYE.  Quarterback Sam Bradford had a better day and looked more confident, but this week’s Offensive woes came with the dropped passes, seven of them.  It was a horribly-played game for our receivers, and that seemed to be the main reason this game was lost.

The Eagles Defense grabbed three interceptions from Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, and had pressure for most of the day. But the Eagles Offense just struggled, made mistakes, could not get separation, and dropped passes. Running back Ryan Matthews was one of the standouts on the day, rushing for 97 yards, 63 of which was a long touchdown run.  DeMarco Murray added on another 65 yards in the game.

Chip Kelly, Eagles receivers, DeMarco Murray, and Sam Bradford are still under fire for under-performing.  Well they have two weeks to think about things as this coming week is the BYE, then we have the Dallas Cowboys.  Tommy Lawlor joins us to chat about where the season is, where the personnel are, and what we can expect, or hope to expect.
