EaglesFanCast Episode 39 – Big Week

Show Notes: Episode 39 for Wednesday, November 5, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles get off to a slow start against the Seattle Seahawks this week, but regroup in a huge way ultimately defeating the Seahawks 26-7.  McNabb struggled early then went on a 20 for 21 streak and ultimately wound up with 349 passing yards and two TD’s.  Those went to returning Receiver Reggie Brown and Offensive Lineman Todd Herremans (WHAT!?).  The Eagles Defense also stifled the hapless Seahawks Offense after the 1st Quarter, 90-yard play and made them punt eleven times.  This coming week the Eagles welcome the New York Giants to town for a Sunday night NFC East street fight at a very unwelcoming Lincoln Financial Field.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Phillies win the World Series, and throw the biggest parade in the city’s history.
  • Chuck and Eric went to the Phillies parade and talk about their experiences
  • Donovan McNabb was horrible in the first quarter of the game
  • Andy Reid refused, again, to deviate from hist scripted plays, and thus didn’t help McNabb’s rusty play by running the ball early
  • Brent Celek has a breakout game because L.J. Smith was out hurt. Smith has been named the starter for the Giants game
  • Trick play to Todd Herremans for a receiving touchdown
  • David Akers hit four field goals to finish out the scoring in the third and fourth quarters, and it definitely looked like Akers regained his confidence
  • We have an email from Aussie Mike
  • The New York Giants come to Philly Sunday night
  • The fans have to be loud for this game
  • The Offense has to be fast, because the Giants will do everything to get to McNabb. Discipline in play and coaching is needed
  • Lito Sheppard did not practice today (Wednesday), so he is most likely out for the Giants game
  • After the Phillies championship, we think the Philadelphia fans will expect even more from the Eagles

EaglesFanCast Episode 34 – Goal Line

Show Notes: Episode 34 for Thursday, October 2, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles traveled to Chicago to take on the Bears and lose a heartbreaker 24-20. With a number of key players still out with injuries and way too many mistakes by players and coaches, the Eagles fall short. We talk about this game, some injury updates and look forward to the Washington Redskins coming to town this Sunday.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Eagles fall to the Chicago Bears 24-20.
  • Many mistakes added up to this loss, and we detail some of them
  • The Offensive Goal Line epic fail and ends with no touchdown
  • Lito Sheppard’s name isn’t spoken that often during the games
  • Email from Aussie Mike
  • David Akers performance and missing two long field goals, but we’re not worried
  • We talk about our next four games, and how we travel to the west coast twice
  • Washington Redskins come to Lincoln Financial Field here in Philly this week for a 1:00 game
  • Going to be a tough game for the Eagles, but a tougher game for the Redskins playing their second very hard game on the road, and maybe experiencing a letdown after beating the Cowboys

Westbrook out, Curtis in vs Redskins

According to a VERY well-informed source within the Eagles organization, RB Brian Westbrook is still having significant pain when trying to cut side-to-side, and will not dress for the Eagles game this Sunday against the hated Redskins.  But, according to the same source, WR Kevin Curtis should be available to see his first game action of the year.  All I can say is, if you have QB Donovan McNabb in a Fantasy league, start him (like you wouldn’t anyway).  Without Westbrook, and with Curtis, Reggie Brown, Hank Baskett, Jason Avant AND DeSean Jackson running routes, the Birds might, MIGHT call 10 rushing plays this week total.

Please continue to check back with us for updates as we continue to break this story to Eagles Nation.

Episode 31 – Opening Day Blowout

Show Notes: Episode 31 for Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Our Philadelphia Eagles start the NFL 2008 season with a blowout win at home in Lincoln Financial Field against the St. Louis Rams.  The Eagles played great on all sides of the ball, including Special Teams, and our QB Donovan McNabb looked confident and back to 100% as we all hoped.  There were few, if any, negative aspects of the game, and there was never a time when the Rams were in the game.  This show had a lot of energy and we couldn’t help but get excited for the season, and we all anticipate the next game against our NFC East rivals, Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

What we discussed:

  • Philadelphia Eagles win over the St. Louis Rams, 38-3
  • Eric and Chuck were at The Linc and Todd watched the game from his couch at home
  • We question Todd’s sanity with some of his comments
  • We have a voicemail from Aussie Mike, who warns us not to get too excited about one win
  • Eric supplies a bunch of impressive stats from the game
  • Sheldon Brown’s big hit, Brian Dawkins and Asante Samuel’s defensive influence, Donovan McNabb’s passing game, Hank Baskett and DeSean Jackson as very capable receivers
  • We had a twitter question from “caffination” who asked if whether our Offense was that good or the Rams team was that bad. We say, both!
  • We talk about the Dallas Cowboys game on Monday Night Football this coming week, and what it means for the rest of the season with a victory in Dallas
