Best in NFC – EaglesFanCast 221

Our Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers in a Thursday night showdown  in another road game.

Now the Eagles have a 5-1 record, the best in the NFC. We are also tied for the best record in the NFL, along with the Kansas City Chiefs. This record comes after the Birds spend 4 of those games on the road, only losing the one to the Chiefs themselves. Since that loss, the Eagles have won four straight, and seemed to have gelled as a team, despite a few key player losses due to injury.

The depth is apparent as players filled those gaps, and allowed the team to play very solid football. This week the Eagles get Lane Johnson back after a concussion protocol.

Right now the Eagles are in great shape with three upcoming home games before the BYE in Week 10.

First is Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins, the only NFC East team that appears at this point to pose a threat to the Eagles for the Division. A divisional game at home… this is football we want!

A Cardinal Blowout – EaglesFanCast 220

Our Philadelphia Eagles make a statement at the Linc Sunday, crushing the Arizona Cardinals 34-7. This moves the Birds to 4-1 on the season. Nelson Agholor was the Eagles standout receiver of the game, with four receptions for 93 yards and a beautiful touchdown. Quarterback Carson Wentz put up 304 yards in the air with four touchdowns… three of which came in the first quarter of the game alone.

This was even more important considering both the Giants and Cowboys lost this week, so the Eagles sit atop the division by themselves. With a powerful new run game, it has kept Defenses off-balance the past two weeks.

Wentz also has been doing an exceptional job at recognizing a defensive set he was not comfortable with. His audibles at the line produced positive yardage every time. The coaches are respecting Carson’s eyes and decision-making abilities more and more. The weapons are there, and the Offense has been capitalizing.

Next is a short week, as the Eagles go down the coast and take on the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are always a tough team, and depending on the Cam Newton that arrives to the game, this will not be an easy game on either side of the ball. On a short week, away game, and against another 4-1 team, this could be harder than most fans want. If it is a loss, we want the Eagles to challenge all game and lose to a better team. But a win would be huge, and would make a lot of believers.

Dropped Opportunities – EaglesFanCast 192

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles lose to the undefeated Carolina Panthers down in Carolina 27-16. With the Giants winning over the Cowboys the Giants move into first place, and the Eagles have to sit with this loss for the next two weeks, as this coming week is a much-needed BYE.  Quarterback Sam Bradford had a better day and looked more confident, but this week’s Offensive woes came with the dropped passes, seven of them.  It was a horribly-played game for our receivers, and that seemed to be the main reason this game was lost.

The Eagles Defense grabbed three interceptions from Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, and had pressure for most of the day. But the Eagles Offense just struggled, made mistakes, could not get separation, and dropped passes. Running back Ryan Matthews was one of the standouts on the day, rushing for 97 yards, 63 of which was a long touchdown run.  DeMarco Murray added on another 65 yards in the game.

Chip Kelly, Eagles receivers, DeMarco Murray, and Sam Bradford are still under fire for under-performing.  Well they have two weeks to think about things as this coming week is the BYE, then we have the Dallas Cowboys.  Tommy Lawlor joins us to chat about where the season is, where the personnel are, and what we can expect, or hope to expect.

Black Monday – EaglesFanCast 191

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The biggest game of the 2015 Eagles season was in Philadelphia on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants, a battle for first place in the NFC East Division.  A loss could have meant the basic end to the season, but a win puts the Birds in a tie for first.  Your Philadelphia Eagles beat the Giants 27-7 after initially being down 7-0 in the first quarter.

The Eagles Defense was unbelievable in their dominance of the Giants after giving up an 80-yard drive and touchdown.  The Giants second drive was looking the same until DeMeco Ryans intercepted the ball.  The Eagles Offense put together a drive and tied it up.  From that point forward, the Eagles either kept the Giants Offense in check, or completely dominated them.

Overall it was an ugly game, with the Eagles turning the ball over four times, and the Eagles Defense getting three turnovers from the Giants (with a pick-six in there from Nolan Carroll), and there were countless penalties on both sides.  Three of the Eagles turnovers came from Sam Bradford interceptions.  His inconsistent play (also having 280 yards passing and a touchdown) has been a reason for anxiety among many fans, some of which are calling for his benching. But is Mark Sanchez the answer?  Highly doubtful, and it’s one of the things we talk about in this episode.

But right now, the Eagles are leading the division, and go to Carolina to play the undefeated Panthers, which will be yet another huge test of what this team is.

Taking Care of Business – EaglesFanCast 172

EaglesFanCast PodcastOur worries about how the Eagles would recover from losing their starting quarterback (Nick Foles), and their star defenseman (DeMeco Ryans) were put to rest as the Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 45-21 on Monday Night Football.  The Eagles fans were loud and thrilled in one of the more exciting blowout wins since, well, the Eagles took care of the Giants a few weeks ago.  The new starting quarterback Mark Sanchez made his first start in over two years, and handily used his weapons in the win, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns.  Rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews was the main target on the night, snagging both of Sanchez’s touchdown passes.  On the other side of the ball, the re-adjusted Eagles Defense had a monster night, racking up nine (!) sacks and grabbing five turnovers, with a TD or two thrown in for good measure.  That’s not all, as the Eagles Special Teams made yet another statement with Darren Sproles returning another punt for a touchdown.  It was an amazing game, with numerous positives on the night.  Is it a Sanchize?

This week, though, the Eagles have a huge test ahead of them as they take on the Green Bay Packers on the road.  It is never easy to play the Pack in Lambeau Field, and after Aaron Rodgers threw for six touchdowns this past week in the Packers’ vivisection of the Chicago Bears.  This week will show many aspects of the Eagles character, preparation, coaching, and heart.
