Shock the World – EaglesFanCast 196

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The New England Patriots, only one loss on the 2015 season.  The Philadelphia Eagles, seven losses on the season, three of which in just the last three weeks.  The Patriots lost last week, and haven’t lost two straight games in forever.  The game’s stage is at Gillette Stadium.  No one expected the Eagles to win this game.  No analysts, the game’s announcers, and even most Eagles fans.

How could we?  After the display the Eagles performed the last three weeks especially, and with Sam Bradford coming off an injury.  The Eagles Defense, allowing 110 points in the last three losses going against a Tom Brady who has something to prove this season and has been remarkable for most of it.

But the Eagles dug down deep.  Very deep.  They executed.  They put pressure on Brady.  Our Offense ran it down the Pats’ throats, but with different guys.  Chip Kelly adjusted for this game, and had a plan.  It took Defense and a ridiculous Special Teams to beat the Patriots this week, and thanks to losses by the Giants and Redskins… into a 3-way tie for the sad NFC East.  Come on, with a 100-yard pick-6, a punt return for a touchdown, AND a blocked punt for a touchdown… ALL IN THE SAME GAME!  It was an amazing game to watch, and gave Eagles fans something huge to cheer for.  This season is not over yet, and there is plenty of football to play, and yes, cheer for.

Stumbling – EaglesFanCast 189

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo here we go setting the stage.  The Philadelphia Eagles are struggling to start the season, already losing a division game, then get a win.  This week they go to play the Washington Redskins, another NFC East team that is struggling.  The Eagles need to win this game, come together as a team, and set the stage for the rest of the season and prove to themselves who they are.

Well that didn’t happen, and we saw more of the same from the team. We saw more mistakes, more dropped passes, more costly penalties and more lack of focus.  It wasn’t all bad, and we saw glimmers of great plays on all sides of the ball.  And that is what gives us just the smallest amount of hope for salvaging this season.

This week the New Orleans Saints come to town with Drew Brees possibly set to take apart the Eagles secondary.  They are also coming off of a win this week after their own horrible start to the season.  This is yet another opportunity for the Eagles to start down a different path this season than they started on.  We’re still discouraged, but maybe things can change.

Eagles fans are angry, though, and some are calling for Chip Kelly’s termination already.  They are hopeless at this point.  Hopefully those fans are wrong, and Chip can pull this team out of the funk that it is in.  I don’t want the organization to start with yet another coach.  Not now.

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.

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.

Tebow and the Schedule – EaglesFanCast 180

EaglesFanCast Podcast

We are joined tonight by our original team member, Eric Grigg!  We start the discussions with the latest entry into the Eagles quarterback pool, arguably  controversial, Tim Tebow.  It surprised a lot of Eagles fans considering coach Chip Kelly’s other moves at the position this offseason.  With five quarterbacks right now, it’s going to be an interesting offseason, especially with the NFL Draft only a couple weeks away.

But next, just tonight the NFL 2015 schedule was released, and we break down our feelings on the season, and speculate how the season will go.  If we have the caliber team we did in 2014, it will be a great year (and it is a huge IF at this point), and many eyes will be on the Eagles, as we have a lot of primetime games to play.

We are ready for 2015!  Let’s go Eagles!!
