Bittersweet NFC East Champs – EaglesFanCast 228

Talk about an up and down Sunday of football. The Philadelphia Eagles enter their second road game on the west coast after losing the previous week to the Seattle Seahawks. The Los Angeles Rams, helmed by quarterback Jared Goff had a 9-3 record and poised for their run at the playoffs, with a lot to play for. Play they did, and so did the Eagles in a brawl of a football game, with ultimately the Eagles besting the Rams 43-35, and clinching the NFC East.

A time for celebration!

But wait, there’s more!

Unfortunately among the celebration was the realization that potential MVP quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL in his left knee. Lost for the season, and well over half of the 2018 calendar year.

Gut punch. Kick in the gonads. A full-on stomach flu feel for Eagles fans the world over.

So now the Eagles have backup quarterback Nick Foles taking the team forward from here on out this season. Nick Foles led the Eagles previously, and had much success. He now has more weapons than he had before.

The Eagles are 11-2, and have the hapless New York Giants this Sunday. Now the Eagles are playing for the #1 seed in the NFC for the playoffs.

We said at the beginning of this season that if the Eagles did not make the playoffs, we would consider this season a failure. They met that goal. The rest is fun. We should not be down, we have an amazing team, are 11 and freaking 2, and have seen some great football so far. This ride is not finished yet. Hang on, it may be bumpy though.

More Dominance – EaglesFanCast 226

The Philadelphia Eagles are back home for a week and host the Chicago Bears at Lincoln Financial Field. It didn’t go well for the Bears, as the Eagles dismantled every part of the Bears Defense and Offense, winning 31-3.

What else can be said at this point with the 10-1 Eagles? They are playing at a very high level, but not looking, at all, like they playing above themselves as either a team, or individual players. Each player that subs in during the game is simply another threat the other defense has to worry about.

And speaking of Defense, the Eagles version of it is ridiculous. They have upended Offensive Lines, quarterbacks, the run game and harassed receivers week after week. The Bears had six, SIX, rushing yards.

Next is the first of two big tests for the Eagles. They go out west and take on a very tough Seattle Seahawks. The week after, they travel down the west coast and meet up with the Los Angeles Rams. These are two high-powered teams, led by very good quarterbacks. This test comes at the perfect time in the season, where the Eagles can prove complete dominance of the league, or as a catalyst for the rest of the season to correct any outstanding negatives that are hiding in the team.

Either way, the Eagles “magic number” is one. If the Dallas Cowboys lose on Thursday, or the Eagles beat the Seahawks on Sunday, the NFC East belongs to the midnight green and silver.

These are good times, let’s enjoy every minute of this Autumn.

Doug Deep – EaglesFanCast 222

The Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFL.

Read that sentence again.

The Birds are now 6-1 on the season. They are 3-0 in the NFC East. They are 5-0 in the NFC. They are in solid shape at this point in the season, and have handled adversity in amazing ways. The Washington Redskins were the latest in this midnight green highway when they came to Lincoln Financial Field and lost.

After a rough first quarter, where the Eagles were cited with multiple penalties, negative yardage, and a Carson Wentz interception… all on the Eagles first possession of the game, they escaped with only a 3-0 deficit. In the second the Eagles outscored the Redskins 17-7, and barely looked back.

We are seeing Wentz to continue to develop, take chances, and make miraculous escapes from the pocket. He is also taking a tough sack, and then throwing touchdown passes a play or two later. He’s a leader of this team, and the team is showing full support for what he is doing and backing him every step of the way. It’s the beginning of something amazing, and a 6-1 record is a great beginning.

The Monday Night Football game also brought David Akers back for his induction into the Eagles Hall of Fame, as Akers is the highest scorer in the history of the team. He led an Eagles cheer  during his induction ceremony, and 70,000 fans cheered with him.

Next is a home game with the San Francisco 49ers traveling east to play in Philly. The Niners have not won a game yet this season, but that can make them a dangerous prospect. We still do not see this as anything but a win for the Eagles, as the coaching staff and players do not take any team lightly, they know every game is a fight, and no opponent is weak.

The negative that came out of the game is the Eagles lost two needed starters in Jason Peters and Jordan Hicks with injuries that ended their seasons. Both players are excellent in their positions and are starters for a reason. It’s a concern for us with having lost two more starters even before the halfway mark in the season.

A High Note – EaglesFanCast 215

The Philadelphia Eagles end the season on that high note, beating the Dallas Cowboys 27-13. Some claimed that the game didn’t mean anything because the Eagles are not in the playoffs. But the Eagles beat another NFC East division rival, the second in as many weeks. They won another home game, the sixth on the season. Their rookie quarterback Carson Wentz gained more experience. They end the season with two wins to go into the offseason. And oh yeah, they beat the Cowboys. All in all, it was a fun way to end the season, and had much to build on in the off season.

The Eagles end the 2016-2017 season with a record of 7-9 after starting 3-0, but our rookie QB more than impressed, and will be a great leader for many years to come. He is a player a team can be built around. That’s huge. This team appears to be only a few pieces shy of making the playoffs. And maybe not too long after that, the big game. We’re along for the ride!

Thank you for sticking with our antics all season, and stay subscribed as we have several shows planned for the offseason for Eagles fans everywhere.

Giant Confidence Boost – EaglesFanCast 214

The New York Giants drive on down the New Jersey Turnpike and enter The Linc expecting to clinch a playoff spot, but it isn’t to be had, as the Eagles defeated them 24-19 in front of a raucous Philadelphia crowd on Thursday night. On the playoff spot, the Giants defeat did allow the Dallas Cowboys to clinch the NFC East, but the Eagles were not going to allow Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants enter the playoffs through Philly. The Eagles Defense stepped up in a big way, intercepting Manning three times in the game, with one as a pick-six, and the other in the final 14 seconds of the game with the Giants offense driving and in the red zone.

The Eagles Offense was able to just enough, only putting up two touchdowns (one through the air, and one on the ground), and less than 300 yards total offense. This was Lane Johnson’s first game back from his PED 10-game suspension, and his influence helped sustain yards and protect quarterback Carson Wentz.

Despite how the game was won overall, it was one of those great wins on the season, a huge holiday present for Eagles fans everywhere, the end of the 5-game losing streak, the first win against a division opponent on the season, and a confidence boost moving forward as the Eagles start planning for the off season with only one game left this season, closing it out on New Years Day at home against the Dallas Cowboys.

On behalf of Todd, Steve, and Chuck, we wish everyone a very happy and safe New Year and amazing 2017.
