One Win Two Losses – EaglesFanCast 171

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Eagles of Philadelphia took a huge step this week, with an increased run game, and took down the Houston Texans down in Houston, 31-21.  Starting quarterback Nick Foles again struggled with turnovers, throwing an interception which resulted in Houston running it back for a touchdown.  At the end of the first quarter, Foles was sacked, and left the game with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.  On Monday, it was confirmed that Foles has a cracked clavicle.  This is an injury that may take six to eight weeks to recover from, if not longer.  Mark Sanchez took over for Foles, and will remain the starter for the foreseeable future.  Sanchez fit right into Chip Kelly’s Offense, and helped bring the Eagles to a win.  And with another Cowboys loss, it puts the Eagles back in first place in the NFC East.

An even bigger loss on the day was in the form of DeMeco Ryans.  Ryans intercepted Texans’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and as he started to run, went down, then fumbled the ball.  What appeared to be an ankle injury was much worse, and a torn Achilles will now put Ryans on Injured Reserve the rest of the season.  This is a significant loss for the Eagles Defense, not only from Ryans’ athletic ability on the field, which has been stellar, but from a leadership role.  He’s the leader of that Defense, the person that pulls the team together, motivates, and inspires.  We will have to see how Billy Davis adjusts the D to compensate for such a huge loss.  The first thing they did is sign safety Chris Prosinski, a free agent safety who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this year.

Finish It – EaglesFanCast 162

EaglesFanCast PodcastWe talked last week after the loss to the Vikings that it was a gut check, and we had confidence that the Philadelphia Eagles would overcome and play hard against the Chicago Bears when they came to Philly on Sunday Night Football.  We were right, in a huge way.  Earlier in the day, the Washington Redskins had the opportunity to beat the Cowboys, and the Eagles could have won the NFC East with a win at home against the Bears.  It did not happen, and the Eagles game meant much less.  On the other hand, the Bears were playing for something.  What resulted was a solid, old-school thrashing with the Eagles coming out on top, 54-11.  All sides of the ball were in top form, and a message was sent to the NFL that the Eagles mean business, are playing in top form, and can possibly beat any team in the league on any Sunday.  They have another chance this Sunday night, in the last game of the 2013 NFL regular season in Big D.  The Eagles and Cowboys play for the Division title, and a spot in the playoffs.  The loser goes home.

Think about that for a minute.  We joked at the beginning of the season when we talked about Week 17 playing the Cowboys, and how it may mean something!  Very very few Eagles fans thought this team would be in this situation, and (as of Thursday night) being a 7-point favorite IN Dallas.  What a ride this season has been so far.  And it is NOT over.  This week the Eagles and Chip Kelly have the opportunity to finish it, and with style.  We cannot wait for this game.  Sunday night cannot come fast enough.

We also want to thank all of our listeners and followers out there during the holiday season.  We gained many new listeners, had some great guests, enjoyed many hours of fun on twitter, and have had an amazing year.  The encouragement and feedback have kept us going, and it has been very much worth it.  We hope all of you have had a great holiday season, no matter what you celebrate, or how.  To us it is about community and a shared love of the Eagles.  Thank you to everyone for being a part of what we do here.

-CHUCK and TODD

What’s This? – EaglesFanCast 157

EaglesFanCast PodcastWhat a football Sunday!  Your Philadelphia Eagles win their third game in a row, break the home game losing streak, and sit atop the NFC East Division going into the BYE week.

The Washington Redskins drive up to Lincoln Financial Field, most likely with a lot of confidence on Sunday.  Confidence because the first time these two teams met, the Redskins’ star quarterback, Robert Griffin III, was coming off of a major injury that sidelined him the season before.  Also, the Eagles had not won at home in almost 14 months.  We know that was something that played into the players’ heads, as a few Eagles players acknowledged it leading into the game.  Well, as we all know now, though, the game is over, the Eagles came out on top, Foles did another amazing job, our Defense bent but did not break, and ultimately the Eagles are in first place in the Division, and things feel good.  This team, including the coaches, is growing, learning, and improving together.  Let’s enjoy the ride and see where they take us.  We have two weeks to relish this latest victory, and analyze the shortcomings to this point.  I’m sure the coaches will be doing that a lot more than us.  Good.  We want the Eagles to go for the throat, and end this season as strong as they can… no mercy.

Manning Head – EaglesFanCast 151

EaglesFanCast PodcastOur Philadelphia Eagles beat the Division rivals New York Giants, 36-21 on the road, then Tony Romo loses the game for the Dallas Cowboys against the Denver Broncos, and the Eagles sit atop the NFC East at 2-3.  Odd, huh?

What was great to see this week is how the Eagles played well against a bad team.  They did not play down to the Giants, instead, made a lot of good plays and more importantly did not let bad plays or execution set the tone thereafter.  We saw players make some great plays, and our backup quarterback come in and lead the Eagles to a win.

Michael Vick pulled a hamstring running out of bounds on a play, and backup Nick Foles came in to lead the Offense.  It appears that Vick will need to sit this week out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well.  Foles will start and run the Offense for four full quarters, so the anticipation is high to see if he keeps his poise and executes as well as he did in New York.  Either way, the media and some fans are talking about the “quarterback controversy” in Philly… but we see none.  Vick is the team’s starter, and it is his job to lose.

Overall what we like to see is the Eagles improve as a team and individually week to week, as the players adjust to their positions, the schemes, and their weaknesses.  The last of the long road trip ends in Tampa Bay, and it is not an easy game by any means.  We will see a lot in this Eagles team, and how they play and are coached on Sunday.

There is a time for everything, and now is the time to reach out to us…
