Season of Change – EaglesFanCast 216

The Philadelphia Eagles 2016-2017 season is over, and we sit down and go over how the season transpired. From trading starting quarterback Sam Bradford and starting rookie Carson Wentz, to the first three wins of the season, to the struggles of our wide receivers, the suspension of Lane Johnson, to finishing up the season with two wins against the Giants and Cowboys. A brief look back at a season that had a change that could affect the Eagles for years to come. A new coach, a new quarterback, and a new path forward.

A High Note – EaglesFanCast 215

The Philadelphia Eagles end the season on that high note, beating the Dallas Cowboys 27-13. Some claimed that the game didn’t mean anything because the Eagles are not in the playoffs. But the Eagles beat another NFC East division rival, the second in as many weeks. They won another home game, the sixth on the season. Their rookie quarterback Carson Wentz gained more experience. They end the season with two wins to go into the offseason. And oh yeah, they beat the Cowboys. All in all, it was a fun way to end the season, and had much to build on in the off season.

The Eagles end the 2016-2017 season with a record of 7-9 after starting 3-0, but our rookie QB more than impressed, and will be a great leader for many years to come. He is a player a team can be built around. That’s huge. This team appears to be only a few pieces shy of making the playoffs. And maybe not too long after that, the big game. We’re along for the ride!

Thank you for sticking with our antics all season, and stay subscribed as we have several shows planned for the offseason for Eagles fans everywhere.

Giant Confidence Boost – EaglesFanCast 214

The New York Giants drive on down the New Jersey Turnpike and enter The Linc expecting to clinch a playoff spot, but it isn’t to be had, as the Eagles defeated them 24-19 in front of a raucous Philadelphia crowd on Thursday night. On the playoff spot, the Giants defeat did allow the Dallas Cowboys to clinch the NFC East, but the Eagles were not going to allow Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants enter the playoffs through Philly. The Eagles Defense stepped up in a big way, intercepting Manning three times in the game, with one as a pick-six, and the other in the final 14 seconds of the game with the Giants offense driving and in the red zone.

The Eagles Offense was able to just enough, only putting up two touchdowns (one through the air, and one on the ground), and less than 300 yards total offense. This was Lane Johnson’s first game back from his PED 10-game suspension, and his influence helped sustain yards and protect quarterback Carson Wentz.

Despite how the game was won overall, it was one of those great wins on the season, a huge holiday present for Eagles fans everywhere, the end of the 5-game losing streak, the first win against a division opponent on the season, and a confidence boost moving forward as the Eagles start planning for the off season with only one game left this season, closing it out on New Years Day at home against the Dallas Cowboys.

On behalf of Todd, Steve, and Chuck, we wish everyone a very happy and safe New Year and amazing 2017.

OT Disappointment – EaglesFanCast 206

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles traveled down to Dallas to fight the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East. After some questionable play calling and dropped passes, the Eagles give up a ten point lead in the fourth quarter and end regulation in a tie. Unfortunately for the Eagles, overtime was all Cowboys, as they drove down the field and scored a touchdown to win the game, 29-23.

It was most likely a very long trip home for the Eagles, but these are some of the mistakes we expected to make this season before it started, plus on paper the Cowboys were the superior team… and we still almost won the game. Overall another division loss hurts, but the Eagles fought hard, and if it wasn’t for some crucial dropped passes and another turnover on a fumble (this time by Wendell Smallwood), the outcome would have been different.

We also discuss receiver / special teams player Josh Huff, who was arrested on Tuesday and charged with several things, including speeding, possession of marijuana, and unlawful possession of a handgun, and DUI. He was arrested on the New Jersey side of a bridge to Pennsylvania, and NJ is rather tough with gun carry laws.

This week the Eagles have another road game against an NFC East Division rival, the New York Giants, so there is no rest for this troubled team at this point in the season.

We also had a very special announcement! Steve Brown, a long-time Eagles fan and listener of our show, and friend, has joined us as our permanent third host of the show! Please welcome Steve aboard, as many of you already know him from his many appearances on the show in the past. Welcome to EaglesFanCast, Steve!

Sammy Sleeves – EaglesFanCast 205

EaglesFanCast PodcastAfter a very tough loss to the Redskins the week before, the undefeated Minnesota Vikings and former Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford come to Philadelphia. This game started slow and ugly at times, but ultimately, the Eagles Defense were all over Bradford all day, sacking him six times, causing two fumbles, and an interception. Bradford was hit many times in this game, and it really got into his head early, and often. The Eagles Defense was the star of the game, for sure, although there was a kickoff return for 98 yards for a TD from Josh Huff, and that also kind of shined.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz struggled in this game, throwing for two interceptions on the day, but continued to mature in our eyes, having the continued confidence in some tough situations on the day, despite some fumbled snaps and miscues. He’s a rookie learning the NFL, one week at a time.

The Eagles are also in the rumor mill this week with trade rumors involving Torrey Smith, as well as Alshon Jeffery. As of the time of this recording, it’s still rumors.

But let us not forget, it is Cowboy Week in Philly. The Eagles will meet the Dallas Cowboys for the first time this season, down in Texas. As we all know, the Cowboys have been playing exceptional football with rookie QB Dak Prescott who has been playing great with no interceptions on the season, so far.

By the way, Tommy Lawlor sits in with us this week, and we question the hell out of him regarding the trade rumors, the good and bad of the rumors that have been flying around regarding DeSean Jackson.
