EaglesFanCast 64 – Welcome Back Trotter

The Philadelphia Eagles put together another impressive Offensive effort in beating the Kansas City Chiefs 34-14.  Granted it was the Chiefs, but we were able to see a confident Kevin Kolb come out and run the Offense and effectively move the ball and make very few mistakes.  It also marked the return of Michael Vick to the NFL where his role this week was more of a decoy than the much-hyped wildcat offense has led us to expect.  Also big news today was the signing of former Eagle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, who left the team, lobbied to come back, then was cut in 2007.  This Eagles organization is anything but boring since the Summer.

What we discussed:

  • Todd came to Philly and he gives his impressions of the updated tailgate
  • Eagles win big over the lousy Kansas City Chiefs
  • Kevin Kolb named NFC Player of the Week, and sets an NFL record for the first Quarterback to ever throw for over 300 yards in each of his first two starts
  • The young players stepped up and played great (McCoy, Kolb, Jackson)
  • Michael Vick makes his first regular season appearance since 2006
  • Eagles signed LB Jeremiah Trotter and released Jeff Garcia
  • What does the Trotter signing really mean to this Defense?
  • Email from Dan in England
  • Voicemail from “Cowboy”  LOL
  • Email from Pat in PA, posing a very interesting scenario
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA
  • Randall Cunningham (QB; 1985-1995) and Al Wistert (T; 1943-1951) both inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Honor Roll at Halftime
  • Email from Holden

Return of the Axe

Jeremiah Trotter back as an EagleThe Philadelphia Eagles today announced that they signed linebacker Jeremiah Trotter to a one-year deal.

This rumor of Trotter’s two workouts in Philly has had fans talking the past week, and now we will see The Axeman return to Eagles Green.  So does this mean that Trot’s just in great shape, the organization is seriously worried about the Defense, or some combination of both?

There is definitely mixed feelings on this signing, as Trotter was one of the fan favorites while he played for the Birds in his first stint, yet his age and aged knees are a cause for concern. With the BYE this week, he’ll have some time to work out with the team and possibly be ready for the Tampa Bay game.

Quarterback Jeff Garcia was let go to make room for this roster move.

We’ll talk about this and what it means to the team on tonight’s show.  You want in?  You can send an email (fans [at] eaglesfancast.net) or call our voicemail line: (856) 335-3675.

EaglesFanCast 62 – Panther Smackdown

The Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 38-10 in a bittersweet win as we also lose our quarterback Donovan McNabb to a broken rib on a late touchdown run.  The Eagles make a lot of moves with some familiar names in the last day in response to McNabb’s injury. Jeff Garcia returns to the Birds, Michael Vick is activated so he can start practicing, and to make room, Guard Shawn Andrews is placed on the IR and Wide Receiver Hank Baskett is cut. An overwhelming news day, and we bring it all to you in typical Green style.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles rout the Panthers 38-10
  • New Defensive Coordinator Sean  McDermott called a great game and alleviated any concerns that he can lead this Defense through the year
  • Trent Cole looked amazing
  • McNabb’s injury play is debated
  • Quarterback Kevin Kolb didn’t impress (again) and he now has the opportunity of his young career this coming week against the New Orleans Saints
  • Email from Dennis from Gettysburg, PA
  • Brian Westbrook’s option was not signed by the Eagles today, leaving him a free agent in 2010
  • Jeff Garcia in, Hank Baskett out, Shawn Andrews out and Michael Vick activated
  • Sheldon Brown had two interceptions in a great performance
  • We talk further about the Saints coming to down this week

Breaking: Shawn Andrews Placed on IR

According to the Philadelphia Eagles website, tackle Shawn Andrews was placed on Injured Reserve today, thus ending his 2009 season that never began.  Now there’s room for Eagles new/returning quarterback Jeff Garcia on the roster… at least for a couple of weeks.  Andrews appeared ready for the season, and talked it up in the weeks leading up to the opener against Carolina.  Unfortunately it appears the recurring back issues were worse than thought.  Now the Eagles have to figure out what to do yet again to fill in his shoes.

This has to bring up the questions (again) as to how long the Eagles will carry Andrews, and if this is his last mention as an Eagle until we hear that he is cut.  With repeated back and other issues on his resume as an Eagle, and the high priority of protecting your quarterback, the Eagles have to analyze what is at their disposal.  Do they have the confidence in Winston Justice to get the job done the entire season?  How can the Eagles continue to carry a player that has played only two games in two seasons?
