Scary Time of Year – EaglesFanCast 170

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles drop their second game of the season to the Arizona Cardinals 24-20 on the road.  The injured Offensive Line forced coach Chip Kelly to cut down on the running game severely, and quarterback Nick Foles attempted 62 passes on the day.  Foles also added another two interceptions on the season, both costly.  He is definitely struggling this season in big ways, and the concerns are that he is not fixing what is wrong from week to week.  On top of that, the Eagles secondary are giving up big plays every game, where they are getting beat, or not even putting up much of a defense when balls are incoming.  Regardless, the Eagles of Philly are 5-2 on the season, and second place in the NFC East as we approach the halfway point of the season.  The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Washington Redskins, which keeps the lead tight.  We’d be silly if we didn’t mention Jeremy Maclin’s standout performance this week, who caught 12 of Foles’ passes for an amazing 187 yards and two touchdowns.  A stellar performance.

Todd shares his experiences at the tailgate and then in the stadium itself this week, as he was there at the Eagles-Cardinals game.  He definitely wasn’t alone in green, as there were easily 10,000 other screaming Eagles fans at the game in the desert.  They were easily heard and seen on the TV coverage, and it made all of us proud.

This week the Eagles remain on the road, and head to Houston to take on the Texans.  On paper the Texans are the weaker team, and the Eagles get back a few players that have been out with injuries, most notably Darren Sproles and Jason Kelce.  It’s good to see Kelce getting back, but Todd Herremans’ torn biceps might limit his effectiveness, but if anyone can play through that pain, it’s Herremans.

EaglesFanCast Episode 33 – Bring the Heat, Jimmy!

Show Notes: Episode 33 for Tuesday, September 23, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles took on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field and smother the Steeler Offense for a 15-6 victory. The Eagles Defense was the side to step up big this game, swarming the confused Steeler quarterbacks and getting nine sacks in the process. Our Eagles are now 2-1 and are playing at a very high level as they travel up to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears this coming Sunday for a prime time game. We are really enjoying what we’re seeing at this point from this team.

What we discussed:

  • Thanks to all of our new listeners to the podcast and followers on twitter… Welcome!
  • The Eagles of Philadelphia beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Philly, 15-6
  • Brian Dawkins did NOT look old and slow, looking more like Superman with something to prove
  • Eagles Defense, looking amazing, swarmed Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, sacking him eight times and backup QB Byron Leftwich one time
  • Brian Westbrook and Donovan McNabb suffered injuries during the game, with McNabb returning and Westbrook not
  • We have a voicemail from Eric in Lansdale, PA
  • Asante Samuel had a great interception, his second of the season, and looks to be fitting his role quite nicely here in Philadelphia
  • We talk about the NFC East Division, and the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins
  • Tailgate talk and some of the shenanigans that ensued
  • We have some Chicago Bears talk, and try to put our fingers on how the Eagles approach the game

Show Notes: Episode 30 for Tuesday, August 26, 2008

We hit the last “real” game of the preseason where we see a good number of the starters before the official kick-off to the 2008 season. The boys of Green played the New England Patriots, and despite it being a preseason game, we’re all excited for what we saw, and cannot wait for the season to finally start!

What we discussed:

  • Philadelphia Eagles played the New England Patriots in the third preseason game
  • The Eagles team really impressed us on Offense, Defense, and dare I say, Special Teams
  • Our QB Donovan McNabb on the regional cover of Sports Illustrated NFL Preview – jinx?
  • We had a twitter request before the show to talk about our running backs in the Patriots game
  • Eric is excited!
  • Position competitions and who might be cut
  • Talk about how the new return game could change things, and how teams approach kickoffs/punts
  • We have a voicemail from Scott which addressed Donovan McNabb, our Offensive Line, DeSean Jackson, and, well, the Eagles Cheerleaders
  • Tailgate plans for the opener and the season
  • Fourth preseason game with the New York Jets coming into town Thursday evening
