Fast and Exciting – EaglesFanCast 147

EaglesFanCast PodcastEAGLES!!  Excitement is back in Philadelphia sports!  Our own Philadelphia Eagles, under new Head Coach Chip Kelly win the opening game of the 2013 NFL season.  But the news isn’t that the Eagles won, but how, and how FAST.  Speculations on how the Eagles would materialize this season under former Oregon Coach Chip have circulated since he accepted the Head Coaching job in Philly.  A few days ago, on Monday Night Football, against NFC East rival Washington Redskins, we saw the speed and energy that Chip brings to our beloved football team.  Our Offense was fast, efficient and thrilling in the first half of the game, moving the ball down the field quickly, and our Defense stunned the Redskins with takeaways, knockdowns, sacks, and pressure.

There were definitely things to be improved upon, and the game did not squelch some of the doubts of the team for this season, but the Philadelphia Eagles made the entire league sit up and take notice.  Chip Kelly has changed this team dramatically, and the next few weeks will show us how much.  The Eagles have the San Diego Chargers coming to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, and I expect the fans to be out of their minds.

Excitement and anticipation is once again alive in Philly, and we could not be happier fans.

This show also features a mix of past Eagles songs created by DaMaineMan Nidice and Produced by Frank Petka.  It’s a great mix, and we very much appreciate them letting us include it in the show.

WE want to hear from you!

The Beast – EaglesFanCast 125

The Philadelphia Eagles fall to a horrendous 4-8 on the season after a 31-14 embarrassing loss to the Seattle Seahawks.  Ironically enough the Eagles are NOT mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet, as all three of the other NFC East teams, the Cowboys, Giants and Redskins all lost this weekend. To talk about this hapless division in the NFL, we have Jimmy Klempski from Blogging the Beast on the show.  Jimmy is also a contributor to Bleeding Green Nation.  We talk about the continued demise of this Eagles team, where some of the blame lies, and how the team needs to approach things heading out of this season.  But wait!  Despite the fact that the NFL Draft is even discussed at one point, there are still four regular season games left to play. This week is the Miami Dolphins, but do we dare even think about the possibility of things turning around for the Eagles, or are they too far gone at this point?

What we discussed:

  • Jimmy Klempski from Blogging the Beast joins us this week!
  • Eagles lose to the Seattle Seahawks 31-14 and are now 4-8 on the season
  • The Eagles’ problems are on all levels of the team
  • Eagles Quarterback situation is NOT good
  • What are the Eagles chances?
  • We have a voicemail that defends Reid, and we address it
  • Moving forward as a franchise might need quite a bit of housekeeping
  • EFC FFL Upate – the playoffs are here!
Still in it:

BYE Week Break – EaglesFanCast 119

So we once again come across the Eagles BYE week, unofficially the mid-point of the Eagles season, despite only being six games in so far.  This is where, historically, fans and analysts (and hopefully coaches) assess the team, what has gone well, what has gone wrong and where things are going. We are no different, and as has been tradition, we invited our friend Jason Brewer from Bleeding Green Nation to join in on the Eagles conversation.  We talk the season so far, the Cowboys game this week, and even dip into the Donovan McNabb pool for a bit.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles grade at the BYE week has to be an ‘F’
  • We talk how the Eagles played against the Redskins
  • The Eagles have three straight Home games coming up against the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals
  • Sunday Night Football… which Dallas team will show up?
  • The Eagles need to beat Dallas to instill confidence in us
  • Out-think, not out-stink! (quote from Todd)
  • We talk a bit about Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb
  • Eric Allen and Jim Johnson will be inducted into the Eagles Honor Roll this coming Sunday in a  Halftime ceremony
  • EFC FFL update

Glimmer of Eagles Hope – EaglesFanCast 118

The Philadelphia Eagles win their second game of the season, and do it against their NFC East Division rival, the Washington Redskins.  The Eagles Defense morphed this week into a more disciplined and aggressive system, which harassed Redskins’ quarterback Rex Grossman for most of the game, and our newest Safety Kurt Coleman had a career game with three interceptions on the day.  On the other side of the ball, the Eagles Offense put up a very impressive first half, looking more confident, but still struggled in the second half yet prevailed by our Defense to win the game.

This week we have Tommy Lawlor on to celebrate the win.  Tommy’s all over the web now, still writing for PhiladelphiaEagles.com, Scouts Notebook and his Eagles blog, Iggles Blitz.  Also joining Chuck and Tommy is big Eagles fan Steve Malinowski from the blog and podcast, Tailgate 365.  Was a fun time with both.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles get their second win of the season, and this win felt really good
  • Kurt Coleman really shut up any detractors this week with his three interceptions of Rex Grossman
  • We need the Eagles Offense to put together all four quarters
  • The players love coach Andy Reid because he never throws any of them under the bus
  • Team leadership
  • Ronnie Brown is back on the Eagles after a failed trade with the Detroit Lions, after Jerome Harrison failed his physical
  • Eagles go into their BYE week at a good time, then invite the Dallas Cowboys to town
