The Beast – EaglesFanCast 125

The Philadelphia Eagles fall to a horrendous 4-8 on the season after a 31-14 embarrassing loss to the Seattle Seahawks.  Ironically enough the Eagles are NOT mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet, as all three of the other NFC East teams, the Cowboys, Giants and Redskins all lost this weekend. To talk about this hapless division in the NFL, we have Jimmy Klempski from Blogging the Beast on the show.  Jimmy is also a contributor to Bleeding Green Nation.  We talk about the continued demise of this Eagles team, where some of the blame lies, and how the team needs to approach things heading out of this season.  But wait!  Despite the fact that the NFL Draft is even discussed at one point, there are still four regular season games left to play. This week is the Miami Dolphins, but do we dare even think about the possibility of things turning around for the Eagles, or are they too far gone at this point?

What we discussed:

  • Jimmy Klempski from Blogging the Beast joins us this week!
  • Eagles lose to the Seattle Seahawks 31-14 and are now 4-8 on the season
  • The Eagles’ problems are on all levels of the team
  • Eagles Quarterback situation is NOT good
  • What are the Eagles chances?
  • We have a voicemail that defends Reid, and we address it
  • Moving forward as a franchise might need quite a bit of housekeeping
  • EFC FFL Upate – the playoffs are here!
Still in it:

Manning Face! – EaglesFanCast 123

As the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles NFL season continues in all of its dual personality, our own Eagles defeat the NFC East 1st place New York Giants in a game that came down to the final minutes.  The culmination of the game was backup Quarterback Vince Young, playing for injured Michael Vick, led his Offense on an 18-play drive for a touchdown that lasted 8:51, breaking the tie and going up 17-10.  Not long after, the Eagles Defense, which dominated most of the game, forced an Eli Manning fumble, stopping the Giants’ drive, and allowing the Eagles to win the game.  What was impressive was that the Eagles starting quarterback (Vick) and wide receiver (Maclin) were both out with injuries, allowing Young and Riley Cooper to fill their shoes, and they did it well. The Eagles won this game in the fourth quarter, something they have struggled with horribly this year, losing five games when leading in the fourth.  It sounds like a great win, and it was, not because of how the game was played, because there were plenty of mistakes and was ugly at times, but because we were able to see the Eagles dig down and do what they HAD to do to win.  The game was played with heart and determination, and we hope that carries the rest of the season that has so far brought disappointment.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles Defense stepped up big
  • Shady McCoy again had a great game, despite the Giants “stopping” his cutbacks most of the game
  • Riley Cooper had a great game in the WR spot for the injured Maclin, and caught his first touchdown pass
  • Vince Young should assume the locker room leadership role and mentor Vick and the team
  • Eagles have to cover two tight ends on the Patriots this week, and there is much concern for this

How Do YOU Say Done? – EaglesFanCast 122

What is there to say? The Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Arizona Cardinals and blow their fifth fourth quarter lead of the season.  At this point, with how the team played and the coaches failed, it’s very difficult to spin anything positive on how this season has progressed, and where they are going from here.  The Eagles travel up to play the New York Giants, but with the season already over, we do not see a chance that the Eagles will pull this game out and expect them to lose.  With much feedback in emails and voicemails this week, we have seen the fans’ disgust with head coach Andy Reid, and it seems that almost all want Reid gone. Thanks for the memories Coach Reid, but your time has passed, please leave your Chinese menu on the way out.  The time’s ours and we want to move on to the next chapter in this Eagles franchise history.

What we discussed:

  • Wide Receiver DeSean Jackson was benched for missing a team meeting. Pretty much Reid’s act was to set an example as a way to take back control
  • Quarterback Michael Vick suffered two broken ribs near the beginning of the game, but it was not known until the game was over, and Vick played poorly as a result
  • Shady McCoy under-utilized again, and again it hurts the team’s production
  • Andy Reid has turned into a horrible coach and manager, showing very little intelligence, bad decision-making abilities and poor judgement
  • The players on this Eagles team no longer have heart
  • The fans have very little faith in the Eagles now, but still love the team
Depressed and saddened:

Bears Eat Eagles Lunch – EaglesFanCast 121

First of all, I want to dedicate this week’s show to all Veterans… of every service… of every country… of every sex, creed and belief. We honor what you do so we can do things like live freely, raise families in peace and enjoy what we make of our time on this planet. Your sacrifices allowed me to grow and raise a family of my own, and allows them to do the same.  Thank you.  Come home safely, welcome home to those who have served, and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, rest in peace.

So here we are again. We discuss yet another head-scratching loss by the Philadelphia Eagles, at home, against a team they should have beaten… by less than a touchdown. The Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football beat the Eagles at The Linc 30-24 as the Eagles display the amazing ability by Head Coach Andy Reid to completely out-coach himself. What works one week cannot possibly work two weeks in a row, so the game plan that worked so effectively against the Dallas Cowboys the week before was drastically changed against the Bears.  Our Castillo-led Defense allowed the Bears to score early, and Reid appears to panic as a result, passing and no longer allowing the positive of the week before move the team forward.  (By the way, in the show I mentioned that the Bears went up 14-0, but in my head I was thinking “by two scores” and my words came out wrong.  Sorry. lol)

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose 30-24 after Reid sees his team go down 7-0 in the first quarter, and panic seems to set in.
  • We believe that there is no hope left in this season, and as a result, Andy Reid is done in Philadelphia
  • Juan Castillo ran the Defense ineffectively, allowing Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler plenty of time to find his receivers in clutch situations
  • Arizona Cardinals are coming to Philadelphia this week, and although we expect a win this week, the outlook for the rest of the season still seems dismal
  • We briefly discuss the situation that broke this week regarding sexual abuse allegations involving the football coaching staff at Penn State

Dallas Destruction – EaglesFanCast 120

How ’bout them Cowboys?! That was a thought repeated many times the past few days by many Philadelphia Eagles fans. The Dallas Cowboys sauntered into Philly for Sunday Night Football, with Rob Ryan talking his talk, and the Eagles go up by 34 points before the Cowboys scored their first touchdown, in the fourth quarter.  The Eagles did everything right in this game, from coaching, to concentration, to discipline, to playmaking.  It was one of those games as a football fan that you have to admire.  The fact that it happened against the hated Cowboys, in Philly, in front of an international audience, and with fueling the thoughts of a season comeback… well that was just icing on the cake.  Make no mistake about it, this was one of the biggest games of the season, and may have many repercussions moving forward.  No, this season is not over, not by a long shot.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles crush Dallas, 34-7 at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday Night Football, and the win was one that felt very good
  • Eagles dominated on every aspect of the game, from top to bottom
  • Jason Peters was just amazing again, and Trent Cole returned in great fashion
  • UK Steve wrote in with questions as to who we would rather have on our team: Vince Young with Shady McCoy OR Michael Vick with Ronnie Brown
  • Jason Avant angered some fans after the game with remarks about fans jumping back on the bandwagon, and he doesn’t want it
  • Shady McCoy and Desean Jackson will need to be paid, but which one should the Eagles address first?
  • The Chicago Bears come to Philadelphia this week for Monday Night Football
  • The New York Giants lose their star running back Ahmad Bradshaw for the season with a broken foot
  • We hear from a UK listener who’s site, Brit Coast Offense, picks the Eagles to take the NFC East
  • EFC FFL update
