EaglesFanCast 90 – Vick Over Franchise

Just a few hours before we were scheduled to sit down and record this episode, the Philadelphia Eagles fan’s world erupted with the news that Head Coach Andy Reid would make Michael Vick the new starting quarterback, leaving franchise quarterback Kevin Kolb to ride it out on the bench. Not 24 hours after Reid said that Kolb was the starter after recovering from his Week 1 concussion, the dramatic announcement took place. We discuss this issue from as many angles as we can see, sometimes rationally, often not, as we try to make sense of the decision. We break down Reid’s press conference, where the concerns are moving forward, and the excitement of this team.

We also talk throughout the show about the win against the Detroit Lions this weekend, the upcoming Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins games, wide receiver Hank Baskett getting cut to make room on the roster, and of course the Dallas Cowboys starting off their season 0-2.

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

EaglesFanCast 55 – NFL Draft 2009

The NFL Draft 2009 starts in just a few days, and the rumors and speculation has been going strong for weeks now.  Most analysts think the Eagles will be taking a running back, specifically Knowshon Moreno out of Georgia, as their first pick.  We, together with Tommy Lawlor from The Scouts Notebook as well as PhiladelphiaEagles.com, talk about the Draft and the latest rocky situation, this time involving Sheldon Brown.

What we discussed:

  • We chat with Tommy Lawlor about how things have been going for him the last year
  • We get Tommy’s take on the Jason Peters trade
  • The Sheldon Brown situation is discussed
  • Email from Aussie Eagle, who’s angry about Sheldon Brown’s comments
  • Prospect RB Knowshon Moreno (Georgia) as the player most people think the Eagles will take with their first pick
  • What the Eagles need as a team, and what might happen
  • We talk about the Anquan Boldin rumors, and do the Eagles really need a wide receiver?
  • Tommy likes WR Hakeem Nicks (UNC), CB Alphonso Smith (Wake Forest), TE Brandon Pettigrew (Oklahoma State), DE Everette Brown (Florida State), FS Malcolm Jenkins (Ohio State)

And They’re Off!

Literally, it seems, they’re off… off to a very questionable start.  Who?  Of course the Eagles front office and how they’re dealing with free agency.

Here’s the losses as of 7:00pm Friday (EST):

Staying?

Acquired?

More than some questionable calls on this list, don’t you think?  Dawkins is no longer an Eagle… how does THAT feel?  I’m scratching my head, and hoping that they start to make some sense very very soon.  So with Andrews coming, that means we’ll say goodbye to Runyan soon as well.  Not sure about you, but this is starting out rather odd to me. Hope things improve, because right now, I’m extremely bummed about losing Dawkins.

We’ll see.

Episode 31 – Opening Day Blowout

Show Notes: Episode 31 for Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Our Philadelphia Eagles start the NFL 2008 season with a blowout win at home in Lincoln Financial Field against the St. Louis Rams.  The Eagles played great on all sides of the ball, including Special Teams, and our QB Donovan McNabb looked confident and back to 100% as we all hoped.  There were few, if any, negative aspects of the game, and there was never a time when the Rams were in the game.  This show had a lot of energy and we couldn’t help but get excited for the season, and we all anticipate the next game against our NFC East rivals, Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

What we discussed:

  • Philadelphia Eagles win over the St. Louis Rams, 38-3
  • Eric and Chuck were at The Linc and Todd watched the game from his couch at home
  • We question Todd’s sanity with some of his comments
  • We have a voicemail from Aussie Mike, who warns us not to get too excited about one win
  • Eric supplies a bunch of impressive stats from the game
  • Sheldon Brown’s big hit, Brian Dawkins and Asante Samuel’s defensive influence, Donovan McNabb’s passing game, Hank Baskett and DeSean Jackson as very capable receivers
  • We had a twitter question from “caffination” who asked if whether our Offense was that good or the Rams team was that bad. We say, both!
  • We talk about the Dallas Cowboys game on Monday Night Football this coming week, and what it means for the rest of the season with a victory in Dallas
