Best in NFC – EaglesFanCast 221

Our Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers in a Thursday night showdown  in another road game.

Now the Eagles have a 5-1 record, the best in the NFC. We are also tied for the best record in the NFL, along with the Kansas City Chiefs. This record comes after the Birds spend 4 of those games on the road, only losing the one to the Chiefs themselves. Since that loss, the Eagles have won four straight, and seemed to have gelled as a team, despite a few key player losses due to injury.

The depth is apparent as players filled those gaps, and allowed the team to play very solid football. This week the Eagles get Lane Johnson back after a concussion protocol.

Right now the Eagles are in great shape with three upcoming home games before the BYE in Week 10.

First is Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins, the only NFC East team that appears at this point to pose a threat to the Eagles for the Division. A divisional game at home… this is football we want!

Thriller Over Giants – EaglesFanCast 218

We are back after a record-setting  amazing win over the New York Giants! We all know the story at this point, with the game tied with only one second left in the game, the Eagles rookie kicker, Jake Elliott was asked to do the near-impossible: kick a field goal of 61 yards. This was a feat that was never accomplished by any Philadelphia Eagles kicker, let alone Eagles rookie kicker! The kick was away… and the kick was gooooooooooood!!!

Eagles fans the world over celebrated together as the Eagles win another division game, move to two wins and one loss on the season, send the Giants to 0-3, and witness history. It was an amazing moment in our fandom.

Overall the game was not great, after the Eagles led 14-0 going into the fourth quarter and feeling good. The Giants had other plans, thanks in part to Odell Beckham Jr. making two amazing end zone catches, the second the result of a drive by the Giants after an Eagles turnover. Just like that it was tied at 14. An Eagles punt and subsequent Giants drive for a touchdown put the Giants ahead 21-14. How did this happen so fast?

But the Eagles answered with a TD of their own to tie it at 21. A Giants field goal, then Eagles field goal then led to the drama of a tie game with less than a minute left. Eagles stopped the Giants drive, which led to a poor punt by the Giants, giving the ball to the Eagles with only 13 seconds left in the game.

Carson Wentz then tried to get the Eagles’ kicker close, but ONLY set him up for the 61 yard attempt. Everyone expected overtime. But not on this day. The rookie Elliott made that kick look almost easy, and was carried off by his teammates to the locker room.

A ridiculous fourth quarter, and a big win for the Eagles.

All About Hope – EaglesFanCast 211

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles execute their worst game of the season at the most inopportune time this week, losing to the Cincinnati Bengals 32-14.

Eagles fans are angry and extremely disappointed with this loss, for very good reasons. Quarterback Carson Wentz played poorly, the Defense was horrible, the running game was practically non-existent, players were repeatedly undisciplined, play-calling was more than suspect, and even special teams had a few flubs.

That’s led to many questions about what happened to the Eagles as the season has gone on, and rightfully so… how can a team that has performed well just start to crumble? Sure some of it falls on the coaches, but some of it also comes from talent. We all know the Eagles as a whole are better than they were last year. We also talked about how the 2016 season was going to be a rebuilding year, THEN the rookie quarterback is made the starter, so we did not expect much at all in the season. But then the rookie is good. They beat some teams we thought were much better, and hope blossomed.

But the hopes are dashed when reality comes knocking again, and people call for the coach to be fired, there’s talk about all of Wentz’s problems with his passing delivery, and the Defense is just poor. We talk about all of these things on the show, and then of course the Redskins drive on up to Philly this week for an NFC East game that no longer means a damn thing to Eagles fans, other than some pride.

Eagle Talons – EaglesFanCast 208

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles win in an exciting home game against the Atlanta Falcons, 24-15. This is the fourth home win this season, where the Birds are undefeated. This week the Eagles fans were crazy loud, and unbelievably quiet when the Eagles Offense was on the field. Such an amazing and smart fan base. Love it.

The Eagles run game was on fire this week, and Ryan Mathews was the star of that game, with 109 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. Overall the Eagles runners were all in play as it helped the Eagles struggling receivers, and Carson Wentz, in a huge way. It was an excellent game plan, and executed in a great way against a very good Falcons Defense.

Speaking of Defense, the Eagles D did an excellent job keeping a Falcons Offense with plenty of weapons for QB Matt Ryan both off the field and out of the end zone, allowing just the one Falcons TD.

This was yet another positive thing for our rookie QB, as he was able to help overcome a fourth quarter deficit and come back and win the game. Exciting and fun game all around, and just another positive that makes us look forward to the future of this team.

This coming week the Eagles travel to Seattle to take on one of the best teams in the league in a very hostile road game. On paper, the Eagles seem to have little shot in this one, but we have seen some very exciting, and surprising things from this team this season. Any given Sunday is the saying, right? Surely this will be another exciting game for Eagles fans.

OT Disappointment – EaglesFanCast 206

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles traveled down to Dallas to fight the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East. After some questionable play calling and dropped passes, the Eagles give up a ten point lead in the fourth quarter and end regulation in a tie. Unfortunately for the Eagles, overtime was all Cowboys, as they drove down the field and scored a touchdown to win the game, 29-23.

It was most likely a very long trip home for the Eagles, but these are some of the mistakes we expected to make this season before it started, plus on paper the Cowboys were the superior team… and we still almost won the game. Overall another division loss hurts, but the Eagles fought hard, and if it wasn’t for some crucial dropped passes and another turnover on a fumble (this time by Wendell Smallwood), the outcome would have been different.

We also discuss receiver / special teams player Josh Huff, who was arrested on Tuesday and charged with several things, including speeding, possession of marijuana, and unlawful possession of a handgun, and DUI. He was arrested on the New Jersey side of a bridge to Pennsylvania, and NJ is rather tough with gun carry laws.

This week the Eagles have another road game against an NFC East Division rival, the New York Giants, so there is no rest for this troubled team at this point in the season.

We also had a very special announcement! Steve Brown, a long-time Eagles fan and listener of our show, and friend, has joined us as our permanent third host of the show! Please welcome Steve aboard, as many of you already know him from his many appearances on the show in the past. Welcome to EaglesFanCast, Steve!
