It’s Not Over – EaglesFanCast 173

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers in frigid Lambeau Field, losing 53-20.  The Packers are the hottest team in the NFL now, and the Eagles had the unfortunate timing of meeting them now.  Many fans have panicked since the game, bashing quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shady McCoy, and even head coach Chip Kelly.  We are not at that point by any means.  Yes, the team under-performed on most sides of the ball this week, they turned the ball over another four times, we have our backup quarterback leading the Offense, and our star running back still has not found his 2013 form after ten games in.  They are 7-3, and tied for first place in the NFC East.  They play the Tennessee Titans in Philly this week, then close out the season with five NFC games, four of which are against the NFC East rivals.  This team can, and will, make the playoffs.  This loss is a wake up call for the team.  We have faith in the coaches to be able to pull this team together, prepare for each and every opponent the rest of the season, and produce a season we will be proud of.

Our good friend Steve Brown joins us to talk about the loss, and moving forward on the season!

It’s not over, Eagles fans… not by a long shot.  There is a lot of fun left to be had this season.  Stay tuned.

One Win Two Losses – EaglesFanCast 171

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Eagles of Philadelphia took a huge step this week, with an increased run game, and took down the Houston Texans down in Houston, 31-21.  Starting quarterback Nick Foles again struggled with turnovers, throwing an interception which resulted in Houston running it back for a touchdown.  At the end of the first quarter, Foles was sacked, and left the game with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.  On Monday, it was confirmed that Foles has a cracked clavicle.  This is an injury that may take six to eight weeks to recover from, if not longer.  Mark Sanchez took over for Foles, and will remain the starter for the foreseeable future.  Sanchez fit right into Chip Kelly’s Offense, and helped bring the Eagles to a win.  And with another Cowboys loss, it puts the Eagles back in first place in the NFC East.

An even bigger loss on the day was in the form of DeMeco Ryans.  Ryans intercepted Texans’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and as he started to run, went down, then fumbled the ball.  What appeared to be an ankle injury was much worse, and a torn Achilles will now put Ryans on Injured Reserve the rest of the season.  This is a significant loss for the Eagles Defense, not only from Ryans’ athletic ability on the field, which has been stellar, but from a leadership role.  He’s the leader of that Defense, the person that pulls the team together, motivates, and inspires.  We will have to see how Billy Davis adjusts the D to compensate for such a huge loss.  The first thing they did is sign safety Chris Prosinski, a free agent safety who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this year.

This is Fun – EaglesFanCast 168

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo, the New York Giants travel down the New Jersey Turnpike after a week of talking trash about the Eagles, come into Lincoln Financial Field and stomp on our Eagles logo…. then absolutely get whomped by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football in front of a national audience.  The Eagles, all in black, shut out the Giants, 27-0.  The last time an Eagles team shut out an opponent was 18 years ago (again it was the Giants).  This was way overdue, and it was overdue that the team came to full dominance on both sides of the ball.  Not to be out-done, Special Teams still had a partial blocked punt in the game, which they continue to shine week after week.  On Offense, quarterback Nick Foles looked better, but still has some fixing to do, as he threw two horrible interceptions, that in a normal game could have been costly.  I say “normal game” because the Eagles Defense absolutely man-handled the Giants Offensive Line, sacking Giants QB Eli Manning 8 times!!  Three of those sacks were recorded by Connor Barwin, and two by Vinny Curry.  The Defense played as great as they could, keeping the entire Giants Offense off-balance the entire game, and it was a great sight to see.  Even at the end of the game, when the Giants desperately did everything they could to get within Field Goal range… even using all three of their timeouts within the last 1:10 of regulation (douche move, Coughlin!!), the Defense was there to complete the shutout, and fully shut the lights out in the Blackout Game Sunday night.  Almost 70,000 fans were out of their minds, except for these two guys.  LOL

It was a great game, with a great ending, in a great stadium, surrounded by the greatest fans in the world.

Black Friday – EaglesFanCast 167

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles maintained their first place hold on the NFC East by beating the St. Louis Rams at The Linc 34-28.  The Eagles Offense has been outscored by their opponent’s Offense two weeks straight now, but the Eagles Special Teams and Defense are helping to put points up on the board.  The Eagles Offense has been sputtering, partly because of a depleted O-line, but also because of miscues and costly turnovers.  But as many say, a Win is a Win, and the Eagles have chalked up four of them in the first five games of the season.  This week the Eagles play host to the Division rivals New York Giants, a team that has been surging lately, and seems to have found their way in this season.  The game is on Sunday evening, and the world will be watching.  Will the struggling Birds show up again this week, or will the team show that it is learning from the many mistakes, and put together an attack against the Giants on both sides of the ball?  Either way, there will be an amped-up fanbase in attendance, who are already buzzing for this game.  It’s a great and exciting time to be an Eagles fan.  Granted our hearts may not always agree, but this is what it is all about.  We bleed green, and expect nothing short of all out heart from our players and coaches.

This week’s game is why we tune in, why we buy the tickets, why we arrive seven hours early to tailgate.  It’s about the love of a team, and the hard work that represents what the city of Philadelphia was built on.

E-A-G-L-E-S…… EAGLES!!

Free Agency 2014 – EaglesFanCast 164

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe 2014 NFL season came to a close, the Super Bowl was played, and the players from all teams cleaned out their locker rooms, some for the last time with their team, some for the last time as a player in the league.  The work then began for the coaches, management, owners, agents, and many others.  Free agency was just around the corner, and the teams do what they can to strengthen their team where they can, or when they lose players.  The Eagles were very active in the first few days of free agency this year, picking up players and even a trade for another running back that took many by surprise.

But did the Eagles really improve drastically, or was it an incremental improvement?  What were the missed opportunities so far, and now how much does the team need to rely on the Draft to finish the job?  Tonight we sat down with our longtime friend, Jason Brewer, the founder of Bleeding Green Nation, and talk about all of these areas.  We also have the pleasure of trashing the rest of the NFC East in mocking some (ok, most) of their decisions.
