Dysfunctional – EaglesFanCast 143

Well the Philadelphia Eagles lose their 43rd straight game, all hell breaks loose, cats and dogs are living together, and it’s complete anarchy.

Perhaps that’s a bit melodramatic, but it sure feels that way, doesn’t it?  The Eagles lose their eighth straight game, another coach (in Jim Washburn) is fired, and it becomes public that he was a bully and disruptive to the team!  What else is going to happen to this Eagles team before the merciful end of the season happens in a few weeks?

In this show, though, we talk about Bryce Brown’s play, both good and bad.  Todd feels that the Eagles also have to clean house of players as well as coaches, letting go of Vick at the end of the season, and trading Shady McCoy and Desean Jackson.  Chuck doesn’t agree with all of that, and feels that good coaches can instill better play from the talent that’s here, including building leaders.  We try to stay positive, and have several laughs, but it’s obvious that Eagles Nation is depressed at this point.  We’ll move forward though… we’re Eagles fans.

The annual BYE Week show is upon us, and for the sixth year in a row we are joined by JasonB of Bleeding Green Nation!

What we discussed:

  • Is Andy Reid gone after this season no matter the Eagles season result?
  • Only Jim Johnson should ever have run Jim Johnson’s Defense
  • New Defensive Coordinator, Todd Bowles possibly just needs to tweak the scheme to make a big difference
  • Andy Reid is responsible for every player on this team at this point in his tenure
  • We review the rest of the games for the season, including the upcoming Atlanta Falcons game this week at The Linc

Andy Reid, Smoke Screen – EaglesFanCast 138

Well the Philadelphia Eagles host the Detroit Lions at Lincoln Financial Field in south Philly.  They give up two 10-point leads during the game, quarterback Michael Vick turns the ball over three more times, and the Eagles lose in overtime 26-23.  The way this season has gone with the caliber of coaching and play, we are not truly surprised by this outcome.  Yet a mere two days later, the Eagles fire Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo and hire Todd Bowles for the job.  This news set off a firestorm of reaction by fans throughout Eagles Nation, some cheering the decision, and many more saying it still is not enough to patch the leaking holes in this ship.  Many state that Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg should also be fired, Mike Vick should be benched, and even Andy Reid himself should be sent packing.  It may not be the pacifier Reid was hoping for with this move, but we hope this is one step to a greater change for this team.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles fire Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo, and more anger than praise is released toward the team
  • Andy Reid is only there because of Jim Johnson and what he accomplished with the Defense
  • The wrong coordinator was fired… it should have been Marty Mornhinweg
  • Reid’s firing of Castillo was a smoke screen!
  • Vick had a look of despair on the sideline at one point in the Lions game after an interception, his mind is not right for this game right now
  • Could the Castillo firing actually be part of a front office plan to get Todd Bowles eventually head coach?
  • Vick is not the leader this team needs
  • Todd Bowles needs to just run the Defense effectively, and be more aggressive

Giant Killers – EaglesFanCast 136

In an emotional and amazing game, the Philadelphia Eagles beat NFC East rivals New York Giants 19-17 in the final minutes of the game.  This leaves the Eagles at 3-1 on the early season, and once again alone at the top of the Division.  The game ended in heart-stopping fashion as Andy Reid tried to ice Giants’ kicker Lawrence Tynes by calling a timeout a split second before the ball was snapped… yet the ball went wide left.  With the entire stadium now watching a second 54-yard attempt, Tynes kicks it away only to drop it short, and handing the Eagles their third win on the year.  Part of what made this game special was beloved former Safety Brian Dawkins was there as the Eagles retired his number, and had a special halftime ceremony for BDawk.  He was an amazing player, always put his heart in every play on that field, and was loved by all Eagles fans.  Guest-hosting this week was Emoney, of Philly Sports Cast fame, and also Steve Brown who stops in to talk about his week-long trip to Philly and his experience at the game.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles win in dramatic fashion at Lincoln Financial Field
  • Offensive play calling completely balanced
  • Brian Dawkins number retirement and amazing halftime tribute
  • The Eagles going 3-1 at this point is a very good thing, and allows for even better things moving forward
  • Special teams coverage was horrible
  • No turnovers!
  • Andy Reid icing the Giants kicker – probably will never be called again
  • Steve Brown from the UK also joined us and talks about his Philly adventures this week

Messed Up – EaglesFanCast 135

The Philadelphia Eagles fall apart, mostly on the Offensive side of the ball this week, and lose to the Arizona Cardinals, 27-6 on the road.  Many things went wrong, and we pretty much blame quarterback Michael Vick, the Offensive Line, Coach Andy Reid and Coach Marty Mornhinweg.  Alas, the Eagles are now 2-1 on the season, and if they fix the issues plaguing them now, are on a solid track moving forward on the season.  Speaking of moving forward, rival New York Giants drive down the Turnpike and show up at Lincoln Financial Field for some Sunday evening festivities.  The Eagles crowd will surely be there to welcome them with open arms, and mouths.  Also at the game Sunday night will be a tribute to one of the greatest Eagles, Brian Dawkins.  His number will also be retired in a much-deserved ceremony.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Arizona Cardinals in embarrassing fashion
  • Michael Vick is again under attack and on the turf often, getting almost no protection from his Offensive line
  • The New York Giants come to down in a rivalry showdown on prime time television
  • Eagles great Brian Dawkins will receive a tribute and the Eagles will retire his number
  • The NFL’s replacement referees are thankfully gone, and the regular refs are back after the dispute with their union is finally settled
