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!

EaglesFanCast 114 – Eagles Fall to Falcons

A wild game down south as the Philadelphia Eagles put up 31 points only to lose to the Atlanta Falcons.  Dropped passes, turnovers, Defensive holes, coaching mistakes and Quarterback Michael Vick leaving the game because of a concussion were the many reasons this game was lost. Despite these, the Eagles put up numbers that would have beaten most teams in the NFL, and there were quite a few bright spots during the game. Some fans are angry and others look at it in the context of it being early in the season.  All told, for the most part the fans are on board with this team as continuing to be a force on both sides of the ball.

This week the Eagles host the New York Giants for the home opener in Philadelphia. With the Giants wanting revenge for the embarrassing loss they marked the last time these teams met, trash talking among some players and the media has started. It is looking like it’s going to be a great game.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Atlanta Falcons in a wild game
  • Head Coach Andy Reid’s decisions and Offensive turnovers cost this game
  • Jason Peters and Trent Cole both had amazing games
  • Michael Vick and his turnovers
  • The Giants are all hyped up for revenge and are talking trash
  • Running back Shady McCoy is just so good, and it was amazing to watch him
  • We talk briefly about our loaner cars from GMNortheast.
  • The EFC FFL update
Just driving forward:

EaglesFanCast 113 – Eagles Start Strong

The Philadelphia Eagles start off the 2011 NFL season with a big win over the St. Louis Rams.  After a rough start on both Offense and Defense, the team turns things around and outscore the Rams 31-6 after a remarkable Rams touchdown very early in the game. The Eagles players and coaches made the necessary adjustments and turned it around showing a tenacity and maturity that we hoped we would see from this team.  Next the Eagles go into Atlanta for a much-hyped game against our star quarterback’s former team, after they come off a bad loss.  It will be another big test early in the season leading up to the home opener the following week.

What we discussed:

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

  • Eagles beat the St. Louis Rams 31-13 on the road to start the season off strong
  • The Offensive line and linebackers definitely were the weak links as was suspected
  • The team adjusted well early, both coaches and players
  • It’s a learning process for the team, and the hope is they excel quickly
  • Eric talks briefly about the Chevrolet Camaro convertible that GM Northeast was awesome enough to let him drive for the week. We encourage you to visit their site at www.drivingthenortheast.com and follow them on twitter,@GMNortheast
  • We have the EFC FFL Week 1 update

EaglesFanCast 94 – Green Birds of Prey

The Philadelphia Eagles pull together behind a stellar performance from backup (!?) quarterback Kevin Kolb and beat the Atlanta Falcons in Lincoln Financial Field, 31-17.  The day was warm, the sun was shining, and the Eagles had a 21-0 lead before the Falcons scored. Special Teams, Defense and Offensive Line all had a great day, and allowed Kolb to work his magic, while stopping the Falcons repeatedly. Unfortunately the day was not perfect, as we witnessed star receiver DeSean Jackson go out with a severe concussion after a terrifying hit, and ol’ reliable kicker David Akers miss three field goals.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Falcons in Philadelphia and travel next week to play the Tennessee Titans
  • WR Desean Jackson’s concussion and hit, plus we talk about other hard hits in the NFL this week
  • Kevin Kolb was phenomenal this week, completing 23 of 29 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns
  • The Defense stepped up, with King Dunlap making an remarkable turnaround from last week
  • Trent Cole was a monster, and Stewart Bradley looks like he’s improving as well
  • Tailgating this week was a lot of fun, with UK Steve visiting Philly on a sports tour that is becoming legendary, and Jason from Bleeding Green Nation hung with us as well.
  • We got to meet The Commissioner of Tailgating, Joe Cahn and talk with him about his tailgating adventures
  • EFC Fantasy Football updates wrap up the show along with an email from Dennis in Gettysburg and a couple of voicemails
