EaglesFanCast Episode 52 – What’s the Plan?

Free Agency has started, and so far the Eagles have lost an enormous amount more than they have gained… at least that is the way it appears to Eagles fans. Losing both Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter, as well as the eventual loss of Jon Runyan due to Stacy Andrews’ signing, has left fans with a very bad taste in our mouths.  It’s painful to see 13-year veteran Dawkins go to another team, despite knowing what a ridiculously-sweet deal they gave him.  Plus we have seen so many other teams be very aggressive in free agency, including division rival New York Giants, and seemingly get better in the process. We’re left wondering what plans the Eagles organization has, and how they plan to fill the many holes that this team now has.

What we discussed:

  • Free agency has started
  • We lost Dawkins, Buckhalter, Considine and soon LJ Smith and Tra Thomas
  • Lito Sheppard was traded
  • Brian Dawkins received an offer from Denver that the Eagles wouldn’t even think about offering him
  • The new NFL is all about business, and fans’ attachments to players hurts when they are inevitably traded or released
  • TJ Houshmandzadeh apparently asked for more money from the Eagles than other teams
  • Dennis from Gettysburg asks us about Boldin and Gonzales
  • Eagles sign Stacy Andrews, who does have a knee injury concern
  • Eagles rumors have involved a ton of wide receivers, but we have signed none
  • What is the Eagles plan?
  • The waiting game is tough

The offseason is here, and so are we:

EaglesFanCast Episode 39 – Big Week

Show Notes: Episode 39 for Wednesday, November 5, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles get off to a slow start against the Seattle Seahawks this week, but regroup in a huge way ultimately defeating the Seahawks 26-7.  McNabb struggled early then went on a 20 for 21 streak and ultimately wound up with 349 passing yards and two TD’s.  Those went to returning Receiver Reggie Brown and Offensive Lineman Todd Herremans (WHAT!?).  The Eagles Defense also stifled the hapless Seahawks Offense after the 1st Quarter, 90-yard play and made them punt eleven times.  This coming week the Eagles welcome the New York Giants to town for a Sunday night NFC East street fight at a very unwelcoming Lincoln Financial Field.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Phillies win the World Series, and throw the biggest parade in the city’s history.
  • Chuck and Eric went to the Phillies parade and talk about their experiences
  • Donovan McNabb was horrible in the first quarter of the game
  • Andy Reid refused, again, to deviate from hist scripted plays, and thus didn’t help McNabb’s rusty play by running the ball early
  • Brent Celek has a breakout game because L.J. Smith was out hurt. Smith has been named the starter for the Giants game
  • Trick play to Todd Herremans for a receiving touchdown
  • David Akers hit four field goals to finish out the scoring in the third and fourth quarters, and it definitely looked like Akers regained his confidence
  • We have an email from Aussie Mike
  • The New York Giants come to Philly Sunday night
  • The fans have to be loud for this game
  • The Offense has to be fast, because the Giants will do everything to get to McNabb. Discipline in play and coaching is needed
  • Lito Sheppard did not practice today (Wednesday), so he is most likely out for the Giants game
  • After the Phillies championship, we think the Philadelphia fans will expect even more from the Eagles

EaglesFanCast Episode 38 – The Westbrook Theorem

Show Notes: Episode 38 for Tuesday, October 28, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Atlanta Falcons in Philadelphia, 27-14. The team welcomes back Brian Westbrook and Kevin Curtis from injuries, with this being Curtis’s first game of the season.  With this back to back win, the Eagles are now 4-3 on the season, and also 10-0 after a BYE week under Head Coach Andy Reid.

What we discussed:

  • Is Philly cursed? We start off talking about the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series, and how Game 5 is suspended because of two days of bad weather
  • Donovan McNabb’s play early was bad, but he relaxed and excelled the rest of the game
  • Brian Westbrook was a rushing machine, and had 22 rushes. We talk about the stat that says when he touches the ball over 20 times, the Eagles don’t lose
  • Jagged play by the Offense. Was it rust by players coming off injuries, or the play calling?
  • The Eagles are 4-3 on the season, but we’re still not satisfied
  • The game Referees were horrendous yet again, and it seems to be the case this whole season
  • Lito Sheppard stepped up this game, and made his presence known in a few ways
  • The Eagles travel to Seattle this Sunday to take on the troubled Seahawks
  • L.J. Smith was almost killed by Lawyer Malloy
  • Reggie Brown was out again this week, despite practicing during the week

EaglesFanCast Episode 34 – Goal Line

Show Notes: Episode 34 for Thursday, October 2, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles traveled to Chicago to take on the Bears and lose a heartbreaker 24-20. With a number of key players still out with injuries and way too many mistakes by players and coaches, the Eagles fall short. We talk about this game, some injury updates and look forward to the Washington Redskins coming to town this Sunday.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Eagles fall to the Chicago Bears 24-20.
  • Many mistakes added up to this loss, and we detail some of them
  • The Offensive Goal Line epic fail and ends with no touchdown
  • Lito Sheppard’s name isn’t spoken that often during the games
  • Email from Aussie Mike
  • David Akers performance and missing two long field goals, but we’re not worried
  • We talk about our next four games, and how we travel to the west coast twice
  • Washington Redskins come to Lincoln Financial Field here in Philly this week for a 1:00 game
  • Going to be a tough game for the Eagles, but a tougher game for the Redskins playing their second very hard game on the road, and maybe experiencing a letdown after beating the Cowboys

EaglesFanCast Episode 32 – Respect Your Elders

Show Notes: Episode 32 for Wednesday, September 17, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles lose a heartbreaker in Irving Texas to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football. In one of the best NFL games I’ve ever watched, critical mistakes cost the Eagles the game, and they fall 41-37. In this show we try to put perspective on the game, how early in the season it is, what went wrong, and what can be done to fix things. Despite the loss, we recognize that the Eagles are truly one of the best teams in the NFL this season, and it will be a fun ride to the end.

What we discussed:

  • Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Dallas Cowboys, 41-37
  • We address Donovan McNabb’s fumbled handoff to Brian Westbrook and his inability to run the 2-minute Offense
  • Sean Considine got burned badly in the Terrell Owens TD reception
  • Brian Dawkins looked old and slow and definitely not on his game, and it’s both sad and worrisome
  • Three teams from the NFC East are in the Top 5 for the ESPN NFL Power Rankings
  • We talk about coaching on both sides of the ball
  • We have an email from Jason who talks about how he feels the day after the loss
  • The Eagles play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field this coming Sunday
  • One of the things the Defense has to do this week is get to Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger
  • We get a twitter message from our buddy Jason from Bleeding Green Nation asking about any kind of interstate rivalry that may exist with the Steelers
  • We have a big tailgate planned this week, BIG!
