Preseason Optimism – EaglesFanCast 182

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The next phase of the 2015 Philadelphia Eagles has started with the first Preseason game in the books, with the Eagles beating the Indianapolis Colts on a very hot Summer day in South Philly.  Eagles fans were finally able to see, well, most of what coach Chip Kelly has built in this sometimes chaotic, and certainly newsworthy offseason.  Although new Eagles Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray did not play, we were able to see a rebuilt Defense, and much-changed Offense take the field at The Linc for the first time. One of the most talked about positions has been at quarterback… not the starter, but the battle for the third spot.  Yeah, it’s been that kind of offseason.  Eagles veteran Matt Barkley and newcomer, well for the Eagles, anyway, Tim Tebow both played to an excited crowd.

Discounted JerseysWe talk about that excitement, and a few observations in this first of four-game preseason, as well as Sam Bradford’s expected debut in next week’s game.

Football is back, Eagles Fans, and with so many unexpected changes and drastic moves and losses, we are finally starting to see the beginnings of a plan.  Let’s be optimistic, and let’s demand the best this team can muster.

In The Hunt – EaglesFanCast 177

EaglesFanCast Podcast
The Dallas Cowboys came into Philly, and on a nationally-televised Sunday night game, trashed the Eagles in front of a stunned crowd at The Linc.  We not only saw the Eagles first home loss of the season, but we also so the NFC East race become much much longer.  With their win, the Cowboys took hold of first place in the Division, and all of a sudden the Eagles volatile season is in jeopardy.  Inconsistency and turnovers did the Birds in this game, and the Cowboys just didn’t make enough mistakes to keep the Eagles in the game.

Now we have to hope in another Cowboys loss, either to the Colts this week, or the Redskins in Week 17, and the Eagles have to beat both the Redskins this week, and the Giants in the last week of the season.  There are other scenarios that are possible for the Eagles to win the Division, but this first would be ideal.  Either way, the Eagles are not in control of their own playoff hunt.  The sad part is the Eagles could end the season with a very impressive 11-5 season, and still miss the playoffs.

We break all of this down, and more, with the always-brilliant Tommy Lawlor, who sat down and we talked about the state of the Eagles at this late juncture of the season.
