EaglesFanCast 100 – Cowboys Week

A full week ago the Philadelphia Eagles finished their fourth game in 18 days and beat the Texans at Lincoln Financial Field 34-24. With the team rested, recovering and with renewed focus, they head down to Dallas, Texas to take on the Cowboys.  The resurgent Cowboys want to play the spoilers as their playoff hopes are gone, and with the rest of the NFC as tight as it is, the Eagles have no choice but to play every game as tough as they can. This game has become another must-win in this already tough season, and the Eagles need to bring their skills, brains and heart to bring the rest of the season to a close, and head to the playoffs.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Houston Texans 34-24 in Philadelphia
  • NFLPA One Team Tour came to Philly, and we met Ellis Hobbs and Winston Justice, plus were able to talk with the Executive Director DeMaurice Smith
  • We cover the next few games with the Dallas Cowboys up first
  • Voicemail from UK Steve Brown
  • The Eagles are fired up for this game against the Cowboys, based partly on revenge for the end of last season
  • Recap of the last week of EFC Fantasy Football’s regular season
  • We talk about the NFC teams and playoff scenarios
  • Voicemail from Aussie Steve

EaglesFanCast 95 – BYE Week Bender

NASHVILLE, TN - OCTOBER 24: Kenny Britt  of the Tennessee Titans catches a pass while defended by Nate Allen  of the Philadelphia Eagles during the NFL game at LP Field on October 24, 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Titans won 37-19. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

We took a BYE week early, as a hard drive crash prevented us from recording after the Eagles – Titans game last week. But we are back with an extra week to nurse our wounds after the Eagles disintegrate in the fourth quarter of that game.  All is not lost as other teams in the NFC look to be on a downward spiral, plus we get some injured players back into the starting lineup. A very tough game is coming up this week after the BYE, as the hot Indianapolis Colts pay a visit to the City of Brotherly Love on Sunday. Also joining us this week for our annual BYE week tradition is Jason Brewer from the excellent Bleeding Green Nation.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Tennessee Titans as inexperience in players and coaching lead to an ugly 4th quarter
  • Ellis Hobbs appears to have been demoted, or he is injured, we are not sure. Regardless, Dmitri Patterson replaces him in the cornerback position.
  • Inexperience definitely played a factor in last week’s loss to the Titans
  • Jason Peters will be back in his starting slot, and should stay away from microphones
  • Michael Vick is also back from his injury and takes the starting quarterback role from Kevin Kolb
  • The Indianapolis Colts scare the hell out of us this week
  • We broach the obvious topic: Donovan McNabb and his current issues in Washington
  • Former Eagle Jon Runyan is now a member of the U.S. House of Representatives!

EaglesFanCast 88 – Preseason Winds Down

Three down, one last to go.  The Jets come to Philly for the last game, and we already know that any starters will get very little play time, if at all.  So that leaves our new starting quarterback, Kevin Kolb, with no scores in the preseason.  That sounds scary, but we agree that there is no need for panic.

There have been ups and downs so far, with a great hit by Asante Samuel, Vick’s usage with the first teams seems to be doing nothing but ruining their timing, DE Ricky Sapp placed on IR and questions about a few others’ performance.  Most of what you have read and heard about this team so far is not very enthusiastic.  Is it a young team still trying to find the gel, or smoke screens by the coaching staff?  We will find out in a few more weeks when we meet the Green Bay Packers in the opener.

In the meantime, there is one more preseason game against the Jets.  Then the final cuts happen.  A lot of players will be fighting for a job, so it should be an interesting game to watch.  Speaking of the Jets, Eric has been watching Hard Knocks and has really enjoyed it.

We also gave out a code in the chat room during the recording for our new EaglesFanCast iPhone App, and have one more to give.  Listen for the EFC trivia question in the show, and be the first to email the correct answer to us, and you can win a code to download the App for free!  Here are the rules: you have to be a resident of the U.S., and obviously you have to have an iPhone to download it.

EaglesFanCast 63 – Kolb’s Debut

This week’s Philadelphia Eagles game was a big one.  It was quarterback Kevin Kolb’s debut as a starter, filling in for the injured Donovan McNabb.  It was the home opener.  It was against a very tough NFC opponent in the New Orleans Saints.  Well the Eagles rebounded off a great performance against the Panthers last week, and underachieved, made mistakes, and took themselves out of a game.  We chat about how Kolb looked out there, what went wrong with the team to lose in such an embarrassing way, the wildcat offense, and field some emails from listeners that have concerns.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to Saints 48-22
  • Kevin Kolb impressed, and we feel he finally earned his spot on the roster
  • Special Teams was just horrendous
  • Is Andy Reid losing control of the team?
  • The wildcat offense was used a lot in this game, is this the new Eagles Offense?
  • Brent Celek had a big game with 101 yards
  • Email from Dennis
  • Email from Holden
  • Email from Alex
  • We talk about the Kansas City Chiefs game this coming week
