Turning Point? – EaglesFanCast 190

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The New Orleans Saints come to Philadelphia, also struggling in their season, and get spanked by the Eagles 39-17. Quarterback Sam Bradford started out in a  negative way, despite driving down the field, throws two interceptions in the red zone, causing much anxiety for Eagles fans everywhere. But things turn around, the Eagles Defense does their job, and then Bradford and the rest of the Offense clicks and does theirs.  The second half the Eagles outscore Drew Brees and the Saints 29-10, and put worries to bed for the week.

The next game on the schedule? The New York Giants come to Lincoln Financial Field for Monday Night Football for first place in the NFC East. This game is huge, and the Eagles need to take the momentum from the Saints win and take the Giants apart.

We discuss the Chip Kelly rumors of going to USC for more money and the opportunity he may have going back to college.

Happy Birthday to Brian Dawkins!

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.

BYE Week Loss – EaglesFanCast 169

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe BYE week is upon us, and we all missed our Eagles playing this week.  The good thing about the BYE is that the team rested, and some of our injured players nursed their wounds another week without missing play time.  In their absence, though, the Dallas Cowboys won yet another game (against the New York Giants), going to 6-1 on the season, and shifting the Birds to second place in the NFC East.  This week we have both Tommy Lawlor and Steve Brown on with us to talk about the Eagles season to date, and how other teams in the league are lining up so far.

This week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals will be a very tough showing for Nick Foles, Shady McCoy, and the rest of the Offense, as the Cardinals have one of the better Defenses in the league.  The BYE week time off will rejuvenate the team, and if we get the running game established early, the Eagles Defense will keep the Cardinals’ Offense in check, and the Eagles will win the game down in Arizona.

We talk about a bit of the history of the Fly Eagles Fly fight song, and how it has become part of the heart of the Eagles team and fans everywhere.  Quarterbacks past and present, mobile and pocket, are also discussed and what seems to work and where they don’t.  It depends on the QB and his weapons, and it all factors in.

A Successful Season – EaglesFanCast 163

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles 2013-2014 season comes to a close as the Birds lose to the Saints in a the final seconds of a heartbreaker.  Philadelphia was treated to a home playoff game after the Eagles finish the season with 10 wins and 6 losses and take the NFC East Division.  The team played well above our season’s expectations, and although they struggled at the beginning of the season, we saw a completely different team than how they started, with a new quarterback in Nick Foles, Lesean McCoy taking the NFL Rushing title as well as breaking the Eagles franchise regular season rushing record.  Desean Jackson also racked up over 1300 yards receiving, our tight ends exceeded expectations, and our Defense played much, much better than any of us anticipated.  And oh yeah, we have a couple of new coaches as well… anyone still have doubts?

To say this was a successful season would be an understatement.  Yes, some can argue that losing in the first round of the playoffs was a missed opportunity.  This Eagles team, though, established itself as a new team with a new approach, new strategies, new player attitude, and a drive to win when it seemed that was all lost just a year ago.

This was a fun season, an exciting season.  It was heartbreaking to see it end, but we cannot wait for next season.  It’s been a few years since we felt like this, and this feels good.  Just one more for the road, E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!!

Have Hope – EaglesFanCast 141

The Philadelphia Eagles fall to the New Orleans Saints at Lincoln Financial Field, on Monday Night Football, and all but cement this season as a total failure.  Eagles fans’ reactions range from anger to apathy, and many wonder if moves by the Eagles’ upper management shouldn’t be made now instead of at the end of the season.  Speculation is everywhere, yet fans we have to endure the pain of not being able to do a thing but sit and watch a sad display week after week.

This week Chuck flies solo in a short show due to scheduling issues, and next week’s show will be put out on Thursday instead of Tuesday.  I talk a bit about the game, how people can help out the victims of Hurricane Sandy, updates to our iPhone / Android app, and the upcoming Dallas Cowboys game.

It’s all good, Eagles fans, we’ll endure this together, debate the reasons we’re suffering, and still have some bit of hope.
