BYE Week Break – EaglesFanCast 119

So we once again come across the Eagles BYE week, unofficially the mid-point of the Eagles season, despite only being six games in so far.  This is where, historically, fans and analysts (and hopefully coaches) assess the team, what has gone well, what has gone wrong and where things are going. We are no different, and as has been tradition, we invited our friend Jason Brewer from Bleeding Green Nation to join in on the Eagles conversation.  We talk the season so far, the Cowboys game this week, and even dip into the Donovan McNabb pool for a bit.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles grade at the BYE week has to be an ‘F’
  • We talk how the Eagles played against the Redskins
  • The Eagles have three straight Home games coming up against the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals
  • Sunday Night Football… which Dallas team will show up?
  • The Eagles need to beat Dallas to instill confidence in us
  • Out-think, not out-stink! (quote from Todd)
  • We talk a bit about Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb
  • Eric Allen and Jim Johnson will be inducted into the Eagles Honor Roll this coming Sunday in a  Halftime ceremony
  • EFC FFL update

EaglesFanCast 57 – RIP Jim Johnson

Jim JohnsonWe’ve taken a few months off, and it was a slow Eagles news time anyway, but we are back.

Unfortunately, we record this episode with heavy hearts, as long-time Eagles Defensive Coordinator, Jim Johnson, passed away today.  He had been battling cancer for a while, and was 68.  We will never forget what he did for the players, coaches and fans of this organization, and we wish his family all the best during this very hard time.

The Philadelphia Eagles website has an amazing tribute to the best Defensive Coordinator the organization, and perhaps the NFL, has ever had.

What we talked about:

  • We remember Jim Johnson, who passed away today.
  • Sean McDermott, the new Eagles Defensive Coordinator named last week, is young and has to gain the respect of the players
  • WR Jeremy Maclin has not signed yet, but there are no worries
  • Training Camp talk: Brian Westbrook looks great, Stacy Andrews is a monster, Shawn Andrews looks like his old self, and Donovan McNabb is having fun
  • Eagles Flight Night is this Sunday – Chuck and Eric will be going, so say hi
  • We talk a little Phillies… we can’t help it, it’s a Philly thing
  • Email from Phil – he has the same thing most Eagles fans are feeling right now: is excited, but has reservations

A listener of the show, Bob, bought the Red Bell Brewery bar from Veterans Stadium, and is now selling it.  It’s 10′ high, 7′ wide, and 10′ deep.  A picture is below.  If you are interested, send Chuck an email, and I’ll hook you up with Bob’s contact info.

One last thing, web aficionado and all-around good guy, Drew Olanoff, was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. Not one to sit back and do nothing, he turned his passion for life and the web on the cancer itself. If you are on twitter, chances are you have seen people blame Drew’s cancer  for many things in their own lives.  Drew’s created the “Blame Drew’s Cancer” movement where  he has partnered with Livestrong, and hopes to get sponsors to donate a dollar for every time someone blames Drew’s cancer for something.  If you’re on twitter, go ahead.

We’re back, so too should you be:

EaglesFanCast Episode 33 – Bring the Heat, Jimmy!

Show Notes: Episode 33 for Tuesday, September 23, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles took on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field and smother the Steeler Offense for a 15-6 victory. The Eagles Defense was the side to step up big this game, swarming the confused Steeler quarterbacks and getting nine sacks in the process. Our Eagles are now 2-1 and are playing at a very high level as they travel up to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears this coming Sunday for a prime time game. We are really enjoying what we’re seeing at this point from this team.

What we discussed:

  • Thanks to all of our new listeners to the podcast and followers on twitter… Welcome!
  • The Eagles of Philadelphia beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Philly, 15-6
  • Brian Dawkins did NOT look old and slow, looking more like Superman with something to prove
  • Eagles Defense, looking amazing, swarmed Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, sacking him eight times and backup QB Byron Leftwich one time
  • Brian Westbrook and Donovan McNabb suffered injuries during the game, with McNabb returning and Westbrook not
  • We have a voicemail from Eric in Lansdale, PA
  • Asante Samuel had a great interception, his second of the season, and looks to be fitting his role quite nicely here in Philadelphia
  • We talk about the NFC East Division, and the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins
  • Tailgate talk and some of the shenanigans that ensued
  • We have some Chicago Bears talk, and try to put our fingers on how the Eagles approach the game
