Eagle Talons – EaglesFanCast 208

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles win in an exciting home game against the Atlanta Falcons, 24-15. This is the fourth home win this season, where the Birds are undefeated. This week the Eagles fans were crazy loud, and unbelievably quiet when the Eagles Offense was on the field. Such an amazing and smart fan base. Love it.

The Eagles run game was on fire this week, and Ryan Mathews was the star of that game, with 109 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. Overall the Eagles runners were all in play as it helped the Eagles struggling receivers, and Carson Wentz, in a huge way. It was an excellent game plan, and executed in a great way against a very good Falcons Defense.

Speaking of Defense, the Eagles D did an excellent job keeping a Falcons Offense with plenty of weapons for QB Matt Ryan both off the field and out of the end zone, allowing just the one Falcons TD.

This was yet another positive thing for our rookie QB, as he was able to help overcome a fourth quarter deficit and come back and win the game. Exciting and fun game all around, and just another positive that makes us look forward to the future of this team.

This coming week the Eagles travel to Seattle to take on one of the best teams in the league in a very hostile road game. On paper, the Eagles seem to have little shot in this one, but we have seen some very exciting, and surprising things from this team this season. Any given Sunday is the saying, right? Surely this will be another exciting game for Eagles fans.

Giant Miscues – EaglesFanCast 207

EaglesFanCast PodcastAnother road game, another NFC East rival, and another loss for the Eagles. This has become a real issue, and this loss to the New York Giants takes the Eagles to 4-4 on the season, and a dismal 0-3 in the Division.

The main thing people have had an issue with in this loss is coach Doug Pederson’s two attempts at going for it on fourth down, when the Eagles were within field goal range for both. They failed on both attempts, and thus leaving six points on the field. Ultimately the Birds lost by five, so we see how those fourth downs affected us. The other side of that coin was that coach Pederson’s approach to the Offense was much more aggressive, and something Eagles fans have been wanting. We saw Carson Wentz going further down field with attempts, sometimes with great results, and other times with inaccurate passes (including two very early interceptions which allowed two quick scores by the Giants), or our receivers dropping passes. The latter has been an issue all season, and we are not seeing improvements at the halfway point.

This week the Eagles are home, and the Atlanta Falcons are on the docket. On paper, this appears to be a close game, with a valid chance the Eagles could come out on top. Either way, our rookie quarterback, and rookie coach, continue to develop, with the expectations of improvement.

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.

Hurricane Andy – EaglesFanCast 140

The Philadelphia Eagles and esteemed Head Coach Andy Reid use the BYE week effectively to prepare for the powered Atlanta Falcons.  Unfortunately the Falcons coaching staff prepared as well, and handed the Eagles a 30-17 loss, embarrassing the Eagles at home.  Vick continued to struggle despite not turning the ball over, and appeared after the game as a beaten man.  The beginnings of the rain from Hurricane Sandy began to fall around halftime, and the fans gave up shortly thereafter, as it was obvious to everyone that there was no heart left in the Eagles team that used to give all to overcome anything.  We also partnered with GM’s Driving the Northeast, and they are letting me drive a GMC Terrain Denali for the week.  I took that to the tailgate this Sunday, and everything I brought easily fit, and the ride and technology in the dash made it a lot of fun to drive.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Falcons 30-17 at the Linc, and the fans lost heart quickly
  • The Atlanta Falcons are a rhythm Offense, and the Eagles defensive scheme was horrible, with Casey Matthews playing hopelessly
  • Michael Vick is just beaten, and seems to be saying it now
  • Andy Reid seems clueless in what to do next, but he has a huge decision to make; start Vick or Foles against the Saints on Monday Night Football on the road
  • I’m driving the GMC Terrain Denali thanks to the folkds at Driving the Northeast
  • Met up with Carmen Harris and George in the lots before the game… we had hope then!
