Fix It – EaglesFanCast 186

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo the first game of the 2015 NFL season did not go as planned for the Philadelphia Eagles.  The first half of the game, it seemed no one was ready to play real football.  The Atlanta Falcons went into the lockerroom at halftime with a 20-3 lead.  Our quarterback Sam Bradford was not good, our receivers could not get any separation, our running game was lackluster, and on the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons were doing just about anything they wanted.  On top of it, the veterans were committing penalties, and the entire team just looked out of synch.  The second half was a different story, for some aspects.  The Defense tightened up, well most of it, our cornerback Byron Maxwell struggled to cover Julio Jones the entire game. But Sam Bradford helped turn the Offense around, they ran better, they got first downs, the receivers got separation, and the Eagles even took the lead at one point.  But ultimately mistakes did the Birds in on the first game of the year.  A missed field goal by Cody Parkey, some costly penalties, and not catching very catch-able balls cost the Eagles a game.

This week is our first home game of the season, and none other than NFC East Division rival Dallas Cowboys are coming in.  With the Cowboys beating the Giants in Week 1, the Eagles need to take back the division, and prove that they are the team we believe they are.

So It Begins – EaglesFanCast 185

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe preseason ends, and the 2015 NFL regular season is about to begin. The Philadelphia Eagles are a very different team than the 10-6 Eagles of last year.  Chip Kelly has made massive, controversial, and unforgettable moves in this offseason that has divided fans at times, made believers of others, and has essentially redefined how to manage and run an NFL organization.

Now we are just days away from the start of four months of Eagles football that may forever define Kelly’s role in the NFL.  We get to see his plan in action, and what he has built. All of the predictions and analyses do not mean anything, because no one has seen something like this before.

We are ready for one hell of a ride.  Are you?  What do you think?  We want to hear from you.  It’s time for Eagles football.  It’s time to bleed green.  It’s time for a new Eagles team, and one amazing experience.

Giddy Preseason – EaglesFanCast 184

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles played their third preseason game, the first on the road, against the Green Bay Packers.  The Birds lay down 39 points in the first half alone.  On top of that, quarterback Sam Bradford played a perfect game.  We reiterate… perfect.  He threw no incompletions, going 10 for 10 for 121 yards, and three touchdowns, in the first seven minutes of the game.  Bradford’s accuracy was great, and he had the finesse and confidence that every team wants as their starter.

It’s hard not to get excited at this point about what we are seeing in our QB, his weapons, the much-improved Defense, and even the continued success of special teams.

The last preseason game is on the road against the New York Jets up in northern New Jersey.  We will not see many of the high-caliber starters, but we will get to see the depth players fighting to make the team. The 53-man roster deadline is fast approaching, and I don’t envy the Eagles coaches with making those decisions as to what players have to go.

Bradford and Murray – EaglesFanCast 183

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe second preseason game is in the books, and so is another 40 points from the Eagles!  It wasn’t just the high score that has us kind of excited, but also that our new quarterback Sam Bradford looked good, and took a few hits and felt good about it.  On top of it, our new running back, DeMarco Murray, also did well, running strong, and scoring a touchdown against a Baltimore Ravens Defense that looked almost lazy.  What else?  Oh maybe that our new wide receiver Nelson Agholor continues to impress, and we also ran back a punt for a touchdown (Kenjon Barner’s second in two games), and of course a couple of interceptions of Joe Flacco by safety Walter Thurmond and cornerback Byron Maxwell also gives a warm feeling in the stomach.

On top of everything else, Mychal Kendricks, our outstanding linebacker, just signed a long-term deal with the Eagles today.  Along with fellow linebacker Kiko Alonso coming back from his injury soon, possibly this week, we should all be excited.

Things look good right now, and the excitement continues to build to a 2015 Philadelphia Eagles season with Chip Kelly’s plan starting to take shape for all of us.  We will see more this week when the Eagles travel to play the Green Bay Packers.

Preseason Optimism – EaglesFanCast 182

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The next phase of the 2015 Philadelphia Eagles has started with the first Preseason game in the books, with the Eagles beating the Indianapolis Colts on a very hot Summer day in South Philly.  Eagles fans were finally able to see, well, most of what coach Chip Kelly has built in this sometimes chaotic, and certainly newsworthy offseason.  Although new Eagles Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray did not play, we were able to see a rebuilt Defense, and much-changed Offense take the field at The Linc for the first time. One of the most talked about positions has been at quarterback… not the starter, but the battle for the third spot.  Yeah, it’s been that kind of offseason.  Eagles veteran Matt Barkley and newcomer, well for the Eagles, anyway, Tim Tebow both played to an excited crowd.

Discounted JerseysWe talk about that excitement, and a few observations in this first of four-game preseason, as well as Sam Bradford’s expected debut in next week’s game.

Football is back, Eagles Fans, and with so many unexpected changes and drastic moves and losses, we are finally starting to see the beginnings of a plan.  Let’s be optimistic, and let’s demand the best this team can muster.
