Season of Change – EaglesFanCast 216

The Philadelphia Eagles 2016-2017 season is over, and we sit down and go over how the season transpired. From trading starting quarterback Sam Bradford and starting rookie Carson Wentz, to the first three wins of the season, to the struggles of our wide receivers, the suspension of Lane Johnson, to finishing up the season with two wins against the Giants and Cowboys. A brief look back at a season that had a change that could affect the Eagles for years to come. A new coach, a new quarterback, and a new path forward.

Eagles Bear Down – EaglesFanCast 201

EaglesFanCast Podcast
The Eagles go to Chi-town, the windy city, Chicago for the national stage of Monday Night Football, to take on Jay Cutler and the Bears. It is the first big audience for Carson Wentz for his NFL rookie season. Wentz handled the Offense again like a veteran player, and not like a rookie at all. He was very exciting to see, again, with the confidence to find receivers, scramble when needed, and take the shot down the field.

Philadelphia won 29-14, on the road, on Monday Night. Impressive even though Chicago is not one of the superpowers in the NFL at this point. The Eagles offensive line protected Wentz, and there was decent blocking for the run game as well. A few in-the-hands drops by receivers (I’m looking at you, Agholor) were really frustrating to see, but overall the scheme on Offense was a very good one, and kept the Bears Defense on their heels, with Wentz passing to seven different players.

On Defense, they were very strong, holding the Bears to only 64 rushing yards, but 220 passing yards, along with a couple of sacks, an interception, and two fumbles recovered.

This week is the real test, with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming into Lincoln Financial Field Sunday afternoon. Pittsburgh is considered one of the best teams in the league after two weeks in. We will see how Wentz handles a true Defense, and how our Defense handles Ben Roethlisberger and all of his weapons.

The future for the Eagles looks bright, my friends. A future where every day is Wentzday.

On the Wentz Wagon – EaglesFanCast 200

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The new Philadelphia Eagles make their debut hosting the Cleveland Browns, with new head coach Doug Pederson, new coaching staff, several new players on all sides of the ball, and our new rookie quarterback, Carson Wentz.

This is what many fans wanted to see, and none of us were disappointed. In interviews through the preseason, and analysts’ evaluations, it has been nothing but positive outlooks for Wentz developing into a quality quarterback. His debut was fantastic. Stats aside, he ran the Eagles Offense like a veteran would. He was confident, aware of his surroundings, and never seemed to panic. Yes, this was against the Cleveland Browns, one of the worst Defenses (and teams) that the Eagles will meet this season, and we have no delusions that the Eagles are a playoff team. This game was about our new coach, and new quarterback. This game was about getting Wentz out there in a stressed, real situation behind his Offensive Line. This was about new Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz and his revamped Defense. And this was about Doug Pederson, and how he was able to bring together his staff and team and start a new season with hope for the future.

Turnovers Again – EaglesFanCast 137

The Philadelphia Eagles march into Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers and Big Ben Roethlisberger, holding to just over 200 yards passing, and the Eagles Defense only allowing 16 total points.  Sounds great, right?  Well unfortunately the Birds Offense struggled again, especially Quarterback Michael Vick, who fumbled the ball three times, losing two of them, allowing him to be the league-worst with eleven turnovers.  Eagles fans are now calling for Vick’s benching, and once again getting increasingly loud in the chant to fire Head Coach Andy Reid for not making the necessary adjustments and erasing the continued bad play.  Although the Eagles are 3-2 on the season, it feels like 0-5, and this team’s repeated mistakes could very well catch up with, and bury, them quickly unless change happens immediately.  This is a team change that must happen, not just a few individuals.

What we discussed:

  • Vick fumbles the ball and the game, away
  • The Defense couldn’t put enough pressure on Roethlesberger
  • the NFL is more of a running league, and the Eagles have one of the best back in McCoy
  • Many Eagles fans in general are absolutely angry
  • We are not as angry, and see 3-2 as a decent start
  • Turnovers have to stop, and the Defense has to get more more pressure, and turnovers

Giant Killers – EaglesFanCast 136

In an emotional and amazing game, the Philadelphia Eagles beat NFC East rivals New York Giants 19-17 in the final minutes of the game.  This leaves the Eagles at 3-1 on the early season, and once again alone at the top of the Division.  The game ended in heart-stopping fashion as Andy Reid tried to ice Giants’ kicker Lawrence Tynes by calling a timeout a split second before the ball was snapped… yet the ball went wide left.  With the entire stadium now watching a second 54-yard attempt, Tynes kicks it away only to drop it short, and handing the Eagles their third win on the year.  Part of what made this game special was beloved former Safety Brian Dawkins was there as the Eagles retired his number, and had a special halftime ceremony for BDawk.  He was an amazing player, always put his heart in every play on that field, and was loved by all Eagles fans.  Guest-hosting this week was Emoney, of Philly Sports Cast fame, and also Steve Brown who stops in to talk about his week-long trip to Philly and his experience at the game.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles win in dramatic fashion at Lincoln Financial Field
  • Offensive play calling completely balanced
  • Brian Dawkins number retirement and amazing halftime tribute
  • The Eagles going 3-1 at this point is a very good thing, and allows for even better things moving forward
  • Special teams coverage was horrible
  • No turnovers!
  • Andy Reid icing the Giants kicker – probably will never be called again
  • Steve Brown from the UK also joined us and talks about his Philly adventures this week
