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 69 – A Giant Win

The Philadelphia Eagles bounce back from two disappointing showings to trounce the New York Giants 40-17 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.  The Eagles jumped out early, executed a very effective Offense, harassed the Giants weapons, and never looked back as they soared to the top of the NFC East.  We break down what we saw, and listen to other fans talk in emails and a voicemail.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles win by 23 over the Giants and move to the top of the NFC East
  • It was complete domination from the beginning of the game
  • The Offense ran the ball a lot more, despite not having RB Brian Westbrook in the lineup
  • Voicemail from Brian in Panama City, FL
  • Coaching, QB Donovan McNabb, playcalling… everything was ready for this Giants team
  • The Dallas Cowboys are coming to town and it cannot be a bigger game at this point in the season
  • Email from Aussie Mike
  • Email from Alex
  • Are we a new team, or do we still have the remnants of the Raiders game to worry about?
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA
  • We talk about Green Fans: the Movie which will be coming out this month. Check it out at http://GreenFansthemovie.com and we hope to have one of the creators on our show in two weeks!

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

Breaking: Shawn Andrews Placed on IR

According to the Philadelphia Eagles website, tackle Shawn Andrews was placed on Injured Reserve today, thus ending his 2009 season that never began.  Now there’s room for Eagles new/returning quarterback Jeff Garcia on the roster… at least for a couple of weeks.  Andrews appeared ready for the season, and talked it up in the weeks leading up to the opener against Carolina.  Unfortunately it appears the recurring back issues were worse than thought.  Now the Eagles have to figure out what to do yet again to fill in his shoes.

This has to bring up the questions (again) as to how long the Eagles will carry Andrews, and if this is his last mention as an Eagle until we hear that he is cut.  With repeated back and other issues on his resume as an Eagle, and the high priority of protecting your quarterback, the Eagles have to analyze what is at their disposal.  Do they have the confidence in Winston Justice to get the job done the entire season?  How can the Eagles continue to carry a player that has played only two games in two seasons?

Juicy rumors surrounding some WRs

One trait of a good journalist is trust – he or she should establish a network of trusted sources (read: spies) and should return that trust by NEVER revealing those sources when asked. We here at EaglesFanCast try to be everywhere at once, and it is with the help of our ever-expanding network that we bring you the latest news about our beloved Birds.

The latest rumor swirling around the team is a whopper. According to our sources, the Eagles and Arizona Cardinals are once again discussing a deal. The particulars? CB Lito Sheppard, OT Winston Justice, and our 1st round pick…for none other than WR Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald carries a $16 million cap number for this year and the next – that is a pretty big nugget which would force the Eagles to get a bit creative. One way I see them doing this is by releasing LB Takeo Spikes and his $5 million cap number. I saw the future of the Eagles LB corps towards the end of last year, with Omar Gaither and Chris Gocong on the outside and Stewart Bradley in the middle. Plus, did you happen to see what number was issued to our latest acquisition, Chris Clemons? That would be # 50. A linebacker’s number. I think the writing is on the wall for Spikes at least; whether it leads to us acquiring Fitzgerald will remain to be seen.

Also, it is now being reported that UFA WR Randy Moss is returning to New England with a three-year deal. Before you get all bent and ream the front office for not making a pitch, our sources are telling us that Andy Reid and Moss recently had a 1.5 hour conversation, but they obviously could not agree on contractual terms. Well, at least they gave it the ol’ college try.
