It’s the Jets – EaglesFanCast 188

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe New York Jets hosted the Philadelphia Eagles in north Jersey, and the Defense did indeed win the game.  But not the Defense that everyone was predicting. Our Eagles Defense grabbed four turnovers and kept the Jets Offense stumbling at times, not able to accomplish much.

The Eagles Offense, on the other hand, were more effective and were more of a cohesive unit, despite DeMarco Murray being out with an injury.  Quarterback Sam Bradford looked more confident, but still struggled with accuracy.  But more of a concern was the dropped passes, at least one to two of them could have been converted into touchdowns.

Chip S8Darren Sproles was another bright spot, running back a punt for a touchdown in very exciting fashion.  He’s just so damn good.

This week the Eagles take on the NFC East Division rival Washington Redskins, who, by nature, struggle.  This could be a win that gives the Eagles even more confidence moving forward, and allows them to continue to gel.  They need to get it done.

False Hope – EaglesFanCast 187

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles lost the home opener to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.  The Eagles were less than ineffective in the game, and it was unbelievable to watch.  Our Defense were able to hold the Cowboys most of the game, but the Eagles Offense could not do anything.  There was no run threat, there was no passing that could be used to get anything moving forward.  The Eagles even had a punt blocked and returned for a touchdown.

Bottom line is, nothing went right in this game.  We heard from several people this week and there was anger, depression, but everyone blamed Chip Kelly and his approach to this team.

Should we as fans hit the real panic button yet?  We’re not sure, but right now things do not look good.  They have dug themselves a big hole, and the rest of this season is not going to be easy, at all.  Our next game is on the road against a now-tough New York Jets team.  This will not be easy.

So It Begins – EaglesFanCast 185

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe preseason ends, and the 2015 NFL regular season is about to begin. The Philadelphia Eagles are a very different team than the 10-6 Eagles of last year.  Chip Kelly has made massive, controversial, and unforgettable moves in this offseason that has divided fans at times, made believers of others, and has essentially redefined how to manage and run an NFL organization.

Now we are just days away from the start of four months of Eagles football that may forever define Kelly’s role in the NFL.  We get to see his plan in action, and what he has built. All of the predictions and analyses do not mean anything, because no one has seen something like this before.

We are ready for one hell of a ride.  Are you?  What do you think?  We want to hear from you.  It’s time for Eagles football.  It’s time to bleed green.  It’s time for a new Eagles team, and one amazing experience.

Giddy Preseason – EaglesFanCast 184

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles played their third preseason game, the first on the road, against the Green Bay Packers.  The Birds lay down 39 points in the first half alone.  On top of that, quarterback Sam Bradford played a perfect game.  We reiterate… perfect.  He threw no incompletions, going 10 for 10 for 121 yards, and three touchdowns, in the first seven minutes of the game.  Bradford’s accuracy was great, and he had the finesse and confidence that every team wants as their starter.

It’s hard not to get excited at this point about what we are seeing in our QB, his weapons, the much-improved Defense, and even the continued success of special teams.

The last preseason game is on the road against the New York Jets up in northern New Jersey.  We will not see many of the high-caliber starters, but we will get to see the depth players fighting to make the team. The 53-man roster deadline is fast approaching, and I don’t envy the Eagles coaches with making those decisions as to what players have to go.

Foles Continues to Shine – EaglesFanCast 132

Three preseason games down, and the Philadelphia Eagles win their third.  This time backup quarterback Nick Foles takes the start while Mike Vick gets some rest for his ribs.  Foles continues to do very well, showing great things as a future starter with this organization.  The Eagles beat the Cleveland Browns 27-10 under his leadership.  We talked about how Vick needs to protect himself during this season and not put himself out there on every play if there are huge risks.  He has to throw the ball away or slide (feet first, of course.)  What we want overall, besides a safe quarterback, is a controlled and balanced Offense this year.  With the caliber of running backs we have, this Offense could be deadly if balanced correctly.

Our guest this week is EFC contributor Holden Fulco, and he brings up an former Eagles player who is also not doing well, in the name of Kevin Kolb.  The conversation then shifts to what the organization sees that we as fans do not, and most of the time the players that leave the Eagles do not thrive.

The Eagles organization had both good news and sad this week, with the sad being we learned of the death of legend Steve Van Buren.  Any Eagles history book has to mention him, and his accomplishments are still talked about to this day.

On the positive side, modern favorite Brian Westbrook announced that he would retire an Eagle.  Still amazes me as to how lucky I have been to have watched him live on that field so many times.  An amazing player and great person.  I’m glad he is retiring with us.
