Not Out Yet – EaglesFanCast 195

EaglesFanCast Podcast

So the Philadelphia Eagles have lost three straight games, are now 4-7 on the season, and yet, somehow, are only a single game out of first in the NFC East.  Don’t count them out just yet!!  Yes, I’m laughing while I typed this. Things have gone from bad to worse for this Birds organization, and with the Defense giving up five passing touchdowns in each of the last two games to the Lions  (with quarterback Matt Stafford) and Buccaneers (QB Jameis Winston) has taken away much of the hope for a recovery on this season.  Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez has not done well at all, and even shut the voices of the Sam Bradford haters.  Right now it’s all doom and gloom for Eagles fans, as we cannot believe what we are seeing.  The rumors of Chip Kelly entertaining the idea of going back to college have started huge again, even prompting the Eagles head coach and General Manager to publicly address it… something he really shouldn’t have to.

The irony in all of this is that the Eagles are not out of the playoff picture, even with this record, and starting December!  The NFC East, the worst division in the NFL, has a tie for first between the Giants and Redskins, with a record of 5-6.  The Cowboys are pretty much officially done now that Romo is out for the rest of the season, the Giants can’t get a consistent act going, and the Redskins are still headed by Dan Snyder… enough said.

It doesn’t get easier now, as the Eagles face the Patriots on Sunday in New England.  Winter is coming.  The Eagles better bundle up.

In Foles We Trust – EaglesFanCast 152

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Sunshine State 31-20.  The Eagles move to 3-3 on the year, and remain tied for the top of the NFC East.  But what was most important in the game is the performance of Quarterback Nick Foles.  With Michael Vick sitting out to rest his hamstring, Foles commanded the Eagles Offense over a tough Bucs D, throwing for three touchdown passes, AND running in another.  Riley Cooper had 120 yards and a TD, DeSean Jackson had 64 yards and two TD’s, Shady McCoy added another 55 yards receiving on two receptions, and another five Eagles caught passes on the day… all adding up to Foles’ 296 passing yards.  Where was the running game?  Healthy, thanks to McCoy’s 116 yards (on 25 rushes) on the ground, with Bryce Brown also carrying five times for 20 yards.  A bunch of stats, but it proves a poing: Foles had confident command of that Offense that day.

As such, we talk about the Foles-Vick situation in Philly.  Which quarterback should lead this team moving forward?  Has Vick really lost the job, and has Foles really won it yet?  Does there need to be a change, or should the Eagles think to the future and develop Foles into the future leader they think he could be?  Right now there is no way to know what coach Chip Kelly is going to do.  It seems that Vick is comfortable sitting until his hamstring is fully healed, and why not?  Foles helped orchestrate a win over the Giants, and commanded a victory over the Bucs.

But this week there is a significant test.  The Dallas Cowboys visit Lincoln Financial Field, a place where the Eagles have not won since September of 2012.  Romo and the Cowboys Offense have put up significant points and yards, and the Eagles Defense is still not stellar by any stretch.  Whichever quarterback gets the call, they will be looking for a division win, and first place alone in the NFC East.  It’s going to be an interesting week.

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.

Dysfunctional – EaglesFanCast 143

Well the Philadelphia Eagles lose their 43rd straight game, all hell breaks loose, cats and dogs are living together, and it’s complete anarchy.

Perhaps that’s a bit melodramatic, but it sure feels that way, doesn’t it?  The Eagles lose their eighth straight game, another coach (in Jim Washburn) is fired, and it becomes public that he was a bully and disruptive to the team!  What else is going to happen to this Eagles team before the merciful end of the season happens in a few weeks?

In this show, though, we talk about Bryce Brown’s play, both good and bad.  Todd feels that the Eagles also have to clean house of players as well as coaches, letting go of Vick at the end of the season, and trading Shady McCoy and Desean Jackson.  Chuck doesn’t agree with all of that, and feels that good coaches can instill better play from the talent that’s here, including building leaders.  We try to stay positive, and have several laughs, but it’s obvious that Eagles Nation is depressed at this point.  We’ll move forward though… we’re Eagles fans.

EaglesFanCast 80 – Free Agency Nothing

Our Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2010 Free Agency season not with a bang, a crackle or even a little hiss.  As other teams scramble and write out big checks for star players, the Eagles organization looks within.  They sign Jason Avant and Leonard Weaver, trade away Reggie Brown… and do not pick up anyone new.  So far.  This week we talk about how things are, how they appear, and some philosophical topics as they relate to the Eagles.

What we discussed this show:

  • Eagles cut favorite player Brian Westbrook a few weeks ago
  • Signings – receiver Jason Avant and fullback Leonard Weaver
  • Restructuring Stacy Andrews’ contract
  • Trade receiver Reggie Brown to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a reported sixth round draft pick
  • Todd rants about Donovan McNabb
  • Have the Eagles become a team that players may not want to come to, because of the Eagles Management team?
  • We try to sort out some of what is going on for Free Agency so far
