EaglesFanCast Episode 39 – Big Week

Show Notes: Episode 39 for Wednesday, November 5, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles get off to a slow start against the Seattle Seahawks this week, but regroup in a huge way ultimately defeating the Seahawks 26-7.  McNabb struggled early then went on a 20 for 21 streak and ultimately wound up with 349 passing yards and two TD’s.  Those went to returning Receiver Reggie Brown and Offensive Lineman Todd Herremans (WHAT!?).  The Eagles Defense also stifled the hapless Seahawks Offense after the 1st Quarter, 90-yard play and made them punt eleven times.  This coming week the Eagles welcome the New York Giants to town for a Sunday night NFC East street fight at a very unwelcoming Lincoln Financial Field.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Phillies win the World Series, and throw the biggest parade in the city’s history.
  • Chuck and Eric went to the Phillies parade and talk about their experiences
  • Donovan McNabb was horrible in the first quarter of the game
  • Andy Reid refused, again, to deviate from hist scripted plays, and thus didn’t help McNabb’s rusty play by running the ball early
  • Brent Celek has a breakout game because L.J. Smith was out hurt. Smith has been named the starter for the Giants game
  • Trick play to Todd Herremans for a receiving touchdown
  • David Akers hit four field goals to finish out the scoring in the third and fourth quarters, and it definitely looked like Akers regained his confidence
  • We have an email from Aussie Mike
  • The New York Giants come to Philly Sunday night
  • The fans have to be loud for this game
  • The Offense has to be fast, because the Giants will do everything to get to McNabb. Discipline in play and coaching is needed
  • Lito Sheppard did not practice today (Wednesday), so he is most likely out for the Giants game
  • After the Phillies championship, we think the Philadelphia fans will expect even more from the Eagles
