Home Field Advantage – EaglesFanCast 230

Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Oakland Raiders in an ugly game in a cold Philly. Eagles clinch the number one seed in the NFC with the win and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

So how do we feel? Anything but jubilant. We feel cautious, nervous, scared, irritated, and, well, pessimistic.

The Defense, while essentially winning the game, allowed big plays and executed poor tackling at times. And on Offense? Nick Foles was not the same player that he was the week before against the Giants. He got into trouble where he didn’t need to be, and was inaccurate on passes way more often than we would have liked.

As such, there is a real concern about the playoffs. Can Foles read and deal with the pressure of better Defenses? Can quality quarterbacks shred our Defense?

Many more questions than we are comfortable with for a 13-2 team with home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Well one more game of the regular season is in front of us, the Dallas Cowboys. This game means nothing. But Foles needs more chemistry and familiarity with his receivers, tight ends, and backs. Will be interesting to see what the coaches decide.

Bird Feed – EaglesFanCast 204

EaglesFanCast PodcastThis one hurts more. The Eagles lose their second game, this one to NFC East rival Washington Redskins.

The arguments before the season started that positional depth might be a factor as the season progresses and injuries become a factor seems to have been proven true. At least in the right tackle position vacated by the now-suspended Lane Johnson. Johnson’s replacement, rookie tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (ok, let’s just go with Big V) struggled in his first start, and the Redskins took advantage of him, putting way more pressure on Carson Wentz than he was used to. Eagles also used three tight ends to help Big V at times, which resulted in a more limited offensive threat. The Birds were kept out of the end zone on offense, and the Eagles Defense allowed three scores by Skins QB Kirk Cousins.

The Eagles did get two touchdowns in exciting style, the first on a kickoff return for a TD by Wendell Smallwood, then on the following Redskins series Malcolm Jenkins intercepted Cousins and ran it back 64 yards for another TD. Although those two scores tied the game back up at 14 apiece, ironically it also allowed the tired Eagles Defense to be on the field for almost the entire second quarter.

Both sides of this team were not clicking Sunday, and now the Eagles are 3-2 on the season, with the unbeaten Minnesota Vikings coming into Lincoln Financial Field this week… beyond that, the schedule does not get any easier.

We were excited to once again have Steve Brown on with us to chat and talk about his upcoming trip to Philly for the Vikings game.
