Doug Deep – EaglesFanCast 222

The Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFL.

Read that sentence again.

The Birds are now 6-1 on the season. They are 3-0 in the NFC East. They are 5-0 in the NFC. They are in solid shape at this point in the season, and have handled adversity in amazing ways. The Washington Redskins were the latest in this midnight green highway when they came to Lincoln Financial Field and lost.

After a rough first quarter, where the Eagles were cited with multiple penalties, negative yardage, and a Carson Wentz interception… all on the Eagles first possession of the game, they escaped with only a 3-0 deficit. In the second the Eagles outscored the Redskins 17-7, and barely looked back.

We are seeing Wentz to continue to develop, take chances, and make miraculous escapes from the pocket. He is also taking a tough sack, and then throwing touchdown passes a play or two later. He’s a leader of this team, and the team is showing full support for what he is doing and backing him every step of the way. It’s the beginning of something amazing, and a 6-1 record is a great beginning.

The Monday Night Football game also brought David Akers back for his induction into the Eagles Hall of Fame, as Akers is the highest scorer in the history of the team. He led an Eagles cheer  during his induction ceremony, and 70,000 fans cheered with him.

Next is a home game with the San Francisco 49ers traveling east to play in Philly. The Niners have not won a game yet this season, but that can make them a dangerous prospect. We still do not see this as anything but a win for the Eagles, as the coaching staff and players do not take any team lightly, they know every game is a fight, and no opponent is weak.

The negative that came out of the game is the Eagles lost two needed starters in Jason Peters and Jordan Hicks with injuries that ended their seasons. Both players are excellent in their positions and are starters for a reason. It’s a concern for us with having lost two more starters even before the halfway mark in the season.

Thriller Over Giants – EaglesFanCast 218

We are back after a record-setting  amazing win over the New York Giants! We all know the story at this point, with the game tied with only one second left in the game, the Eagles rookie kicker, Jake Elliott was asked to do the near-impossible: kick a field goal of 61 yards. This was a feat that was never accomplished by any Philadelphia Eagles kicker, let alone Eagles rookie kicker! The kick was away… and the kick was gooooooooooood!!!

Eagles fans the world over celebrated together as the Eagles win another division game, move to two wins and one loss on the season, send the Giants to 0-3, and witness history. It was an amazing moment in our fandom.

Overall the game was not great, after the Eagles led 14-0 going into the fourth quarter and feeling good. The Giants had other plans, thanks in part to Odell Beckham Jr. making two amazing end zone catches, the second the result of a drive by the Giants after an Eagles turnover. Just like that it was tied at 14. An Eagles punt and subsequent Giants drive for a touchdown put the Giants ahead 21-14. How did this happen so fast?

But the Eagles answered with a TD of their own to tie it at 21. A Giants field goal, then Eagles field goal then led to the drama of a tie game with less than a minute left. Eagles stopped the Giants drive, which led to a poor punt by the Giants, giving the ball to the Eagles with only 13 seconds left in the game.

Carson Wentz then tried to get the Eagles’ kicker close, but ONLY set him up for the 61 yard attempt. Everyone expected overtime. But not on this day. The rookie Elliott made that kick look almost easy, and was carried off by his teammates to the locker room.

A ridiculous fourth quarter, and a big win for the Eagles.

Season of Change – EaglesFanCast 216

The Philadelphia Eagles 2016-2017 season is over, and we sit down and go over how the season transpired. From trading starting quarterback Sam Bradford and starting rookie Carson Wentz, to the first three wins of the season, to the struggles of our wide receivers, the suspension of Lane Johnson, to finishing up the season with two wins against the Giants and Cowboys. A brief look back at a season that had a change that could affect the Eagles for years to come. A new coach, a new quarterback, and a new path forward.

Giant Confidence Boost – EaglesFanCast 214

The New York Giants drive on down the New Jersey Turnpike and enter The Linc expecting to clinch a playoff spot, but it isn’t to be had, as the Eagles defeated them 24-19 in front of a raucous Philadelphia crowd on Thursday night. On the playoff spot, the Giants defeat did allow the Dallas Cowboys to clinch the NFC East, but the Eagles were not going to allow Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants enter the playoffs through Philly. The Eagles Defense stepped up in a big way, intercepting Manning three times in the game, with one as a pick-six, and the other in the final 14 seconds of the game with the Giants offense driving and in the red zone.

The Eagles Offense was able to just enough, only putting up two touchdowns (one through the air, and one on the ground), and less than 300 yards total offense. This was Lane Johnson’s first game back from his PED 10-game suspension, and his influence helped sustain yards and protect quarterback Carson Wentz.

Despite how the game was won overall, it was one of those great wins on the season, a huge holiday present for Eagles fans everywhere, the end of the 5-game losing streak, the first win against a division opponent on the season, and a confidence boost moving forward as the Eagles start planning for the off season with only one game left this season, closing it out on New Years Day at home against the Dallas Cowboys.

On behalf of Todd, Steve, and Chuck, we wish everyone a very happy and safe New Year and amazing 2017.

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.
