Black Monday – EaglesFanCast 191

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The biggest game of the 2015 Eagles season was in Philadelphia on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants, a battle for first place in the NFC East Division.  A loss could have meant the basic end to the season, but a win puts the Birds in a tie for first.  Your Philadelphia Eagles beat the Giants 27-7 after initially being down 7-0 in the first quarter.

The Eagles Defense was unbelievable in their dominance of the Giants after giving up an 80-yard drive and touchdown.  The Giants second drive was looking the same until DeMeco Ryans intercepted the ball.  The Eagles Offense put together a drive and tied it up.  From that point forward, the Eagles either kept the Giants Offense in check, or completely dominated them.

Overall it was an ugly game, with the Eagles turning the ball over four times, and the Eagles Defense getting three turnovers from the Giants (with a pick-six in there from Nolan Carroll), and there were countless penalties on both sides.  Three of the Eagles turnovers came from Sam Bradford interceptions.  His inconsistent play (also having 280 yards passing and a touchdown) has been a reason for anxiety among many fans, some of which are calling for his benching. But is Mark Sanchez the answer?  Highly doubtful, and it’s one of the things we talk about in this episode.

But right now, the Eagles are leading the division, and go to Carolina to play the undefeated Panthers, which will be yet another huge test of what this team is.

Fix It – EaglesFanCast 186

EaglesFanCast PodcastSo the first game of the 2015 NFL season did not go as planned for the Philadelphia Eagles.  The first half of the game, it seemed no one was ready to play real football.  The Atlanta Falcons went into the lockerroom at halftime with a 20-3 lead.  Our quarterback Sam Bradford was not good, our receivers could not get any separation, our running game was lackluster, and on the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons were doing just about anything they wanted.  On top of it, the veterans were committing penalties, and the entire team just looked out of synch.  The second half was a different story, for some aspects.  The Defense tightened up, well most of it, our cornerback Byron Maxwell struggled to cover Julio Jones the entire game. But Sam Bradford helped turn the Offense around, they ran better, they got first downs, the receivers got separation, and the Eagles even took the lead at one point.  But ultimately mistakes did the Birds in on the first game of the year.  A missed field goal by Cody Parkey, some costly penalties, and not catching very catch-able balls cost the Eagles a game.

This week is our first home game of the season, and none other than NFC East Division rival Dallas Cowboys are coming in.  With the Cowboys beating the Giants in Week 1, the Eagles need to take back the division, and prove that they are the team we believe they are.

Eagles Pre-Draft 2015 – EaglesFanCast 181

EaglesFanCast Podcast

 

Like so many of our years before, we are joined by the one and only Tommy Lawlor this week for his amazing analysis of the Eagles needs and fits in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Only a few days until the Draft kicks off Thursday night, and only a small handful of people inside the Philadelphia Eagles organization know what they have planned.  The Eagles fans, analysts, and Draft geeks can only speculate what this unpredictable organization will do by the end of the upcoming weekend.  Chip Kelly has surprised and wowed many for the past few months, leading some to speculate he is a genius and others to proclaim him insane.  Either way it has been entertaining, and the excitement leads right up to this particular Draft, which some Eagles media has been talking about since the middle of the 2014 season, because of one player, Marcus Mariota.

We discuss Mariota and what he would bring to the team, and what the Eagles would have to give up to get him.   From there we move on and Tommy opens the floodgates of his college football player knowledge past and present.  We go position by position on both Offense and Defense and talk about the needs, wants, and who the Eagles might pick up, and when.

Players like TJ Clemmings, Jake Fisher, or Brandon Sherff could be the Eagles newest Offensive Lineman.  We talked about the Cornerback and Safety needs, and players Quentin Rollins, Eric Rowe, Adrian Amos, Damarious Randall, and Byron Jones are all those that could fit Eagles needs.

No one has it figured out yet, but we have a feeling it’s going to be an exciting night for Eagles fans as we welcome the newest to wear midnight green.

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.

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.
