Rolling Into Dallas – EaglesFanCast 224

At the Eagles BYE week, just past the mid-point of the season, we see the Philadelphia Eagles with a 8-1 record. The Birds have won seven straight games, and have not lost a game to a team in the NFC or the NFC East. Their last three games they have won by a margin of 28 points (over Denver Broncos 51-23), 23 points (over San Francisco 49ers 33-10), and 10 points (over Washington Redskins 34-24). They are getting better as the season is going, despite four starters gone for the year.

This week is Dallas, though. A crucial game with potential playoff ramifications. Everything points to the Eagles winning this game, especially with the odd turmoil the Cowboys organization seems to be in lately. But this is the NFL, where any team seems to be able to win each week. I mean, even the Giants won a game this season.

We were all over the place in this episode, though, with not so quiet confidence in this team and what they can do. Already talking playoffs after nine games? When was the last time we had that luxury? We are all just enjoying it right now.

Best in NFC – EaglesFanCast 221

Our Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers in a Thursday night showdown  in another road game.

Now the Eagles have a 5-1 record, the best in the NFC. We are also tied for the best record in the NFL, along with the Kansas City Chiefs. This record comes after the Birds spend 4 of those games on the road, only losing the one to the Chiefs themselves. Since that loss, the Eagles have won four straight, and seemed to have gelled as a team, despite a few key player losses due to injury.

The depth is apparent as players filled those gaps, and allowed the team to play very solid football. This week the Eagles get Lane Johnson back after a concussion protocol.

Right now the Eagles are in great shape with three upcoming home games before the BYE in Week 10.

First is Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins, the only NFC East team that appears at this point to pose a threat to the Eagles for the Division. A divisional game at home… this is football we want!

Aggressive Loss – EaglesFanCast 213

The Eagles travel from Philadelphia down to Baltimore to take on the Ravens in one of the last games of the year. A game that didn’t make much of a difference in the season, as the Eagles were just about eliminated from a playoff spot (but not entirely).

The climax of the game easily was the end of the game where quarterback Carson Wentz drove the offense down the field, behind in the score, and scored a touchdown with only 40 seconds left on the clock. This brought the Eagles within one point, down 27-26. In a controversial call, coach Doug Pederson decided to go for the win on a 2-point conversion. The Wentz pass was batted down at the line of scrimmage, falling short of the intended receiver, and the Ravens players celebrated the win. There has been much conversation among fans and analysts as to whether the Birds kicked the extra point for the tie, or gone for the win with the conversion. We talked about both sides of the decision, which ultimately gave the Eagles their ninth loss of the season, and their fifth in a row.

Next the Eagles host the New York Giants on Thursday, and could play the spoiler to the Giants playoff hopes. We also get to see Lane Johnson come back from his ten game suspension.

We also congratulate both Fletcher Cox and Jason Peters for being voted into the Pro Bowl.

With only two games left on the season, we have seen good things to look forward to.

On behalf of Todd, Steve, and Chuck, we wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season, no matter how, or if, you celebrate.

The Expected – EaglesFanCast 203

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe first loss of the season comes at the hands of the Detroit Lions, a Ryan Mathews fumble, a Carson Wentz interception (his first of the year), a flat Eagles Defense to start the game, and poor officiating. With all of that listed, we are not especially bummed about this loss. Disappointed, yes, but the loss does not taste that bad.

The Eagles went in the hole quickly in the first quarter by two touchdowns, but adjusted, dug in, and came back and eventually took the lead in the fourth quarter. This was a huge test for both the rookie quarterback, and rookie head coach Doug Pederson, as they showed they could lead the Birds back. This is a positive thing moving forward as the Eagles have their first divisional game against the Washington Redskins this next week on the road, and then the games get much more challenging moving forward from there.

This game was one they could have won. They didn’t. But it was yet another learning experience in a long road that us Eagles fans hope will lead us back to the playoffs again, if not this year, then next.

Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson’s 10-game suspension was upheld today, for PED use. It is not surprising, but it is a big loss, and will make the Eagles protection of both Wentz and the running game that much more tough in the weeks ahead.

Sheer Dominance – EaglesFanCast 202

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe battle of Pennsylvania occurred Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, and the ultimate outcome was Wentzylvania! The Pittsburgh Steelers had a very long ride home on the Wentzylvania Turnpike after being crushed by the Philadelphia Eagles 34-3. The Steelers came into Philly riding high in week three, considered by many to be one of the best teams in the NFL. The Eagles, on the other hand, had solid plans of their own under the remarkable coaching of Doug Pederson, who orchestrated and Offensive scheme that allowed rookie quarterback Carson Wentz to completely command how to attack the Steelers defense, and keep them completely guessing as to what was going to happen next. It was an amazing day, and solidifies this Eagles team as a contender in not only the NFC East, but now the NFC Conference as well.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Eagles only allowed the Steelers a field goal on the day. Think about that for a second. The mighty Ben Roethlisberger was denied a touchdown. Their backs, lacking injured Le’Veon Bell, were also blanked. Eagles Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz had a plan for everything in this game, and the Eagles players executed amazingly.

Next the Eagles rest with a BYE week, and we will surely miss seeing them on the field at this point. It’s exciting once again, and we have hope!
