The Philadelphia Eagles lose yet again, this time to the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field. They blew a 23-3 lead and lost by a score of 23-24, for the third game in a row scoring zero points in the 4th Quarter of the game and allowing their opponent to effectively run their Offense. The fans’ heartache and frustration were displayed as a good portion of the stadium started chanting “Let’s Go Phil-lies! Let’s Go Phil-lies!” during the last quarter of the game. There is blame landing throughout the organization by fans, from the players (Maclin carrying the ball like a loaf of bread and easily getting it knocked loose, Ronnie Brown deciding to pass as he is falling to the ground, and Alex Henery missing two chip shot Field Goals), to the Assistant Coaches like Juan Castillo. But none are feeling the anger like Head Coach Andy Reid. Most feel he bears the brunt of the blame, and already some are saying he should be fired for yet another loss and not getting the players and coaches prepared.
What we discussed:
- Most people are blaming Andy Reid for this loss, but Eric is blaming less Reid, and more on the players mistakes
- Injuries are now adding up and could hurt the team further
- Emails, voice mails and feedback on Facebook and Twitter reflect the Eagles fans’ anger
- The EFC FFL update

We try to address what the Philadelphia Eagles have done in free agency and trades over the past week, but it’s almost impossible within an hour’s time. All we know for sure is that the Eagles have become more aggressive this off-season since the lockout ended than in any other year that we can remember, surely the most under current management. We have to say, along with most other Eagles fans, that we are very excited for this season. Although there are still concerns, such as the linebacker and kicker positions, the Eagles are a better team over last year at most positions.
What we discussed:
- The Eagles have been on fire with moves and signings in a huge way all week
- Kicker Alex Henery reportedly kicking monster field goals consistently at Training Camp
- Linebacker position still a question, but it seems less of a concern with the rest of the lineup
- Will there be a trade of Asante Samuel since there are three stud corners?
- DeSean Jackson holding out at Training Camp, but he needs to be paid, it’s that simple
- Dallas’ Rob Ryan tried to stir the pot wit calling the Eagles (presumably) the “all hype team”. Meh.
The 2011 NFL Draft is over, the dust has settled, the player lockout is back on, and we have Tommy Lawlor back on the show to talk all about the Draft. We go over the picks, the repercussions, the Draft day moves and even touch on how things may have worked out for other teams we all love to hate.
What we discussed:
- Tommy Lawlor is back for the 2011 Eagles Draft wrap up
- Danny Watkins was the Eagles first pick. As a 26 year old rookie, is he too old? Maybe he is the mature player with few miles on his body that the Eagles Offense needs
- With a 4th round Kicker drafted, Alex Henery pretty much means David Akers will no longer be an Eagle
- Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett was the Eagles 54th pick, and that will most likely mean Quintin Mikell will not be re-signed
- Curtis Marsh was taken in the 3rd round to fill a Cornerback spot
- The Eagles made four trades during the Draft this year
- Four Linebackers were drafted this year, and they are needed
- Casey Matthews – one of the most instinctive Linebackers out there in this class
- Redskins made some improvement
- Cowboys made some strange picks
- Giants made some questionable decisions
