Gut Check – EaglesFanCast 161

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles get what we hope is a gut check in losing to the Minnesota Vikings 48-30, snapping the five-game win streak.  The Eagles Offense started out slow and quarterback Nick Foles struggled early on.  This left the Eagles Defense on the field a lot during the first half, and by the second half they were gassed, the Bears Offense played very well, and exploited a damaged Eagles secondary.

Eagles fans’ sad feelings were definitely diminished as the Dallas Cowboys played the Green Bay Packers, and after leading the Packers 26-3 at halftime, very impressively lost the game.  This left the Eagles alone in first place in the NFC East, and setting up a very critical, and exciting final two weeks of the season.

The Chicago Bears rumble into Lincoln Financial Field this week, and the game was flexed to the Sunday Night Football game as both teams have an 8-6 record and hoping for playoff spots.  The Eagles, we believe, will use the humbling loss this week to reassess their weaknesses and adjust to what is needed, both on the players and coaching sides.  This week was a gut check… the Eagles are a team that will overcome, and they will win this game at home.

Snow Bowl – EaglesFanCast 160

EaglesFanCast PodcastLet’s play some football in the snow!  In case you were living deep in the Caribbean this past week, you heard about the snowstorm that hit Philadelphia, dropping around eight inches of the white stuff during the game.  Reports called for an inch or two, then turning to sleet and rain in the afternoon.  They received the type of snow that made for legendary games, and the Eagles played to that caliber.  Shady McCoy set a personal and Eagles single-game record, plowing through 217 yards on the ground.  The Eagles Defense played and adjusted, and played and adjusted.  Overall they only allowed just eight points and made the Lions look like they were playing football on a snow day.

It was one of the greatest Eagles games I have ever seen, and at the time I was not believing what I was seeing at all.  Not in the Birds’ play themselves, but in the way the game played out.  It was fun, it was surreal at times, and it was a classic.  I wish I was there, but still enjoyed every second of it on the small screen regardless.  Our Eagles plowed through the snow, the Lions, and thanks to the Cowboys first step in their December implosion… first place in the NFC East.

Bears Eat Eagles Lunch – EaglesFanCast 121

First of all, I want to dedicate this week’s show to all Veterans… of every service… of every country… of every sex, creed and belief. We honor what you do so we can do things like live freely, raise families in peace and enjoy what we make of our time on this planet. Your sacrifices allowed me to grow and raise a family of my own, and allows them to do the same.  Thank you.  Come home safely, welcome home to those who have served, and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, rest in peace.

So here we are again. We discuss yet another head-scratching loss by the Philadelphia Eagles, at home, against a team they should have beaten… by less than a touchdown. The Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football beat the Eagles at The Linc 30-24 as the Eagles display the amazing ability by Head Coach Andy Reid to completely out-coach himself. What works one week cannot possibly work two weeks in a row, so the game plan that worked so effectively against the Dallas Cowboys the week before was drastically changed against the Bears.  Our Castillo-led Defense allowed the Bears to score early, and Reid appears to panic as a result, passing and no longer allowing the positive of the week before move the team forward.  (By the way, in the show I mentioned that the Bears went up 14-0, but in my head I was thinking “by two scores” and my words came out wrong.  Sorry. lol)

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose 30-24 after Reid sees his team go down 7-0 in the first quarter, and panic seems to set in.
  • We believe that there is no hope left in this season, and as a result, Andy Reid is done in Philadelphia
  • Juan Castillo ran the Defense ineffectively, allowing Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler plenty of time to find his receivers in clutch situations
  • Arizona Cardinals are coming to Philadelphia this week, and although we expect a win this week, the outlook for the rest of the season still seems dismal
  • We briefly discuss the situation that broke this week regarding sexual abuse allegations involving the football coaching staff at Penn State

Dallas Destruction – EaglesFanCast 120

How ’bout them Cowboys?! That was a thought repeated many times the past few days by many Philadelphia Eagles fans. The Dallas Cowboys sauntered into Philly for Sunday Night Football, with Rob Ryan talking his talk, and the Eagles go up by 34 points before the Cowboys scored their first touchdown, in the fourth quarter.  The Eagles did everything right in this game, from coaching, to concentration, to discipline, to playmaking.  It was one of those games as a football fan that you have to admire.  The fact that it happened against the hated Cowboys, in Philly, in front of an international audience, and with fueling the thoughts of a season comeback… well that was just icing on the cake.  Make no mistake about it, this was one of the biggest games of the season, and may have many repercussions moving forward.  No, this season is not over, not by a long shot.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles crush Dallas, 34-7 at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday Night Football, and the win was one that felt very good
  • Eagles dominated on every aspect of the game, from top to bottom
  • Jason Peters was just amazing again, and Trent Cole returned in great fashion
  • UK Steve wrote in with questions as to who we would rather have on our team: Vince Young with Shady McCoy OR Michael Vick with Ronnie Brown
  • Jason Avant angered some fans after the game with remarks about fans jumping back on the bandwagon, and he doesn’t want it
  • Shady McCoy and Desean Jackson will need to be paid, but which one should the Eagles address first?
  • The Chicago Bears come to Philadelphia this week for Monday Night Football
  • The New York Giants lose their star running back Ahmad Bradshaw for the season with a broken foot
  • We hear from a UK listener who’s site, Brit Coast Offense, picks the Eagles to take the NFC East

BYE Week Break – EaglesFanCast 119

So we once again come across the Eagles BYE week, unofficially the mid-point of the Eagles season, despite only being six games in so far.  This is where, historically, fans and analysts (and hopefully coaches) assess the team, what has gone well, what has gone wrong and where things are going. We are no different, and as has been tradition, we invited our friend Jason Brewer from Bleeding Green Nation to join in on the Eagles conversation.  We talk the season so far, the Cowboys game this week, and even dip into the Donovan McNabb pool for a bit.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles grade at the BYE week has to be an ‘F’
  • We talk how the Eagles played against the Redskins
  • The Eagles have three straight Home games coming up against the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals
  • Sunday Night Football… which Dallas team will show up?
  • The Eagles need to beat Dallas to instill confidence in us
  • Out-think, not out-stink! (quote from Todd)
  • We talk a bit about Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb
  • Eric Allen and Jim Johnson will be inducted into the Eagles Honor Roll this coming Sunday in a  Halftime ceremony
  • EFC FFL update
