Giants, Playoffs, and Pro Bowl – EaglesFanCast 229

Ladies and gentlemen, the Philadelphia Eagles have clinched a first round BYE, and get to host the Divisional round! That was the good news of the win over the New York Giants. The bad news is the Eagles Defense allowed almost 500 yards from Eli Manning and the Giants Offense, considered one of the worst Offenses in the league.

There is concern, and the rest of the league’s analysts see a big concern. We see more of a Defense that was on its third road game, coming off two tough opponents in the Seahawks and Rams. We do expect the players and coaches to recover back to the very strong level they were weeks ago.

At this point, if the Eagles win one of their last two games, and the Vikings lose one game, the Birds have home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Todd throws out the comparison of stats between Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Amazing how close these two guys are. Quarterback controversy? LOL

It’s Not Over – EaglesFanCast 173

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers in frigid Lambeau Field, losing 53-20.  The Packers are the hottest team in the NFL now, and the Eagles had the unfortunate timing of meeting them now.  Many fans have panicked since the game, bashing quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shady McCoy, and even head coach Chip Kelly.  We are not at that point by any means.  Yes, the team under-performed on most sides of the ball this week, they turned the ball over another four times, we have our backup quarterback leading the Offense, and our star running back still has not found his 2013 form after ten games in.  They are 7-3, and tied for first place in the NFC East.  They play the Tennessee Titans in Philly this week, then close out the season with five NFC games, four of which are against the NFC East rivals.  This team can, and will, make the playoffs.  This loss is a wake up call for the team.  We have faith in the coaches to be able to pull this team together, prepare for each and every opponent the rest of the season, and produce a season we will be proud of.

Our good friend Steve Brown joins us to talk about the loss, and moving forward on the season!

It’s not over, Eagles fans… not by a long shot.  There is a lot of fun left to be had this season.  Stay tuned.

Taking Care of Business – EaglesFanCast 172

EaglesFanCast PodcastOur worries about how the Eagles would recover from losing their starting quarterback (Nick Foles), and their star defenseman (DeMeco Ryans) were put to rest as the Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 45-21 on Monday Night Football.  The Eagles fans were loud and thrilled in one of the more exciting blowout wins since, well, the Eagles took care of the Giants a few weeks ago.  The new starting quarterback Mark Sanchez made his first start in over two years, and handily used his weapons in the win, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns.  Rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews was the main target on the night, snagging both of Sanchez’s touchdown passes.  On the other side of the ball, the re-adjusted Eagles Defense had a monster night, racking up nine (!) sacks and grabbing five turnovers, with a TD or two thrown in for good measure.  That’s not all, as the Eagles Special Teams made yet another statement with Darren Sproles returning another punt for a touchdown.  It was an amazing game, with numerous positives on the night.  Is it a Sanchize?

This week, though, the Eagles have a huge test ahead of them as they take on the Green Bay Packers on the road.  It is never easy to play the Pack in Lambeau Field, and after Aaron Rodgers threw for six touchdowns this past week in the Packers’ vivisection of the Chicago Bears.  This week will show many aspects of the Eagles character, preparation, coaching, and heart.

Philly Jawn – EaglesFanCast 156

EaglesFanCast PodcastBack to back wins, and back to back impressive displays from our backup quarterback Nick Foles as the Philadelphia Eagles traveled to Green Bay and beat the Packers 27-13.  Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers was out with an injury, and the Eagles Defense did what they had to do to stop the Packers two backup quarterbacks from doing any kind of damage all game.  It was another fun game to watch, as even the bad passes seemed to thread needles in the Birds’ favor, and that usually doesn’t happen to the Eagles.  Foles was not perfect this time around, but still threw no interceptions, and had another three touchdown passes; two again to his favorite target Riley Cooper, and another to Desean Jackson.  Shady McCoy had a great game, running the ball all day without much getting in his way.

This week the Eagles go back home, and NFC East Division rivals Washington Redskins drive up to the Linc for the festivities.  With a big Division game, and the bad juju of a very long winless streak at home, it is a game that must be won.  After this game the team can relax for the BYE, but they have work to do first.  The Eagles fans must show up, be loud, and support the players and the team.
