EaglesFanCast 108 – The Lockout Is Over

The NFL lockout is over, and the teams, players and staff are reporting back to work in an official manner.  The day has been busy with news around the league, but not much so far in the Philadelphia Eagles camp, with only some rookie free agent signings and a number of rumors.

We come back from our lockout hiatus and jump into what we know so far and what we expect from here.

What we discussed:

  • The Philadelphia Eagles will not be re-signing any of their free agents
  • Surprised that Stewart Bradley will not be back
  • Longtime favorite David Akers, a kicking legend in Philly and the last of the Eagles Super Bowl team, will also be gone
  • We talk about Kevin Kolb and how his status is affected by the Seahawks’ signing of two quarterbacks
  • Brett Favre coming to Philly? No way, Eskin.
  • Somehow Todd gets to talking about how bad Donovan McNabb played in that fateful Super Bowl
  • We get a voicemail from Elijah Smalls

EaglesFanCast 107 – Eagles Post-Draft 2011

The 2011 NFL Draft is over, the dust has settled, the player lockout is back on, and we have Tommy Lawlor back on the show to talk all about the Draft.  We go over the picks, the repercussions, the Draft day moves and even touch on how things may have worked out for other teams we all love to hate.

What we discussed:

  • Tommy Lawlor is back for the 2011 Eagles Draft wrap up
  • Danny Watkins was the Eagles first pick.  As a 26 year old rookie, is he too old?  Maybe he is the mature player with few miles on his body that the Eagles Offense needs
  • With a 4th round Kicker drafted, Alex Henery pretty much means David Akers will no longer be an Eagle
  • Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett was the Eagles 54th pick, and that will most likely mean Quintin Mikell will not be re-signed
  • Curtis Marsh was taken in the 3rd round to fill a Cornerback spot
  • The Eagles made four trades during the Draft this year
  • Four Linebackers were drafted this year, and they are needed
  • Casey Matthews – one of the most instinctive Linebackers out there in this class
  • Redskins made some improvement
  • Cowboys made some strange picks
  • Giants made some questionable decisions

EaglesFanCast 104 – Playoff Crash

Philadelphia Eagles Green Bay PackersThe Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the playoffs on Sunday of Wildcard Weekend.  The result was from a series of mistakes stemming from drops, penalties, missed field goals, missed tackles, missed opportunities, and missed coaching decisions.  It was another heartbreak loss in the playoffs. We try to come to terms with the loss and put the whole team into perspective with how the unexpected season transpired. With dozens of injuries throughout the season, the resurgence of Mike Vick as an MVP quarterback, winning the NFC East, and NO other East team even making the playoffs… it’s been one hell of a season, and one that builds excitement for what can be for 2011.

From an EaglesFanCast standpoint, thank you to everyone who listened in and joined us this season.  We had a lot of new listeners, from all over the world, and we heard from many of you, and it’s been great.  Please stay with us throughout the offseason, and we want to hear from you.  Let us know what you want to hear on future shows.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose in the first round of the playoffs to the Green Bay Packers
  • The feeling of most fans at the end of this season is sadness
  • Blame the coaches? Blame Akers? Blame Vick? Blame inexperience? We try to sort that out.
  • The feeling of some is that we need a new Head Coach.  A coach that is a gameday coach, a clock management coach and a coach that can adjust.
  • It was a season that was above our expectations, and now we expect big things for next season
  • We briefly look at what we need moving forward
  • Chuck talks about the tailgate setup this week, and Tom McAllister hung out too!

Don’t forget to friend up on facebook, our friends at Alpaca Pictures so they can get the distribution deal for their movie, “99 Percent Sure

EaglesFanCast 74 – Giant Sweep

The Philadelphia Eagles travel up the New Jersey Turnpike for their last regular season game at Giants Stadium, and in an epic Eagles-Giants battle, win 45-38.  Not only do the Eagles sweep the Giants this year, but with the Dallas Cowboys loss earlier in the day, the Eagles wind up alone in first place in the NFC East.  All aspects of the team contributed to the victory, and the team showed an enormous amount of character in the face of a tough Giants Offense.  Our confidence builds as the regular season approaches the last few weeks, and we can start to see the playoffs in our sights.

What we discussed:

  • Explosive Offense kept the Giants Defense guessing
  • If Brian Westbrook comes back, a fear is that Andy Reid will revert to an unbalanced Offense again
  • Michael Vick is getting more comfortable out there
  • Email from Steve asking about the Vick / McNabb change in Offense and how it can confuse Defenses
  • Email from KC in Gettysburg, which sparks a conversation of the playoffs are just not enough
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA bringing up the point of the Eagles D having continued troubles tackling
  • Voicemail from DQ in NY, talking about Vick being traded for no better than a 5th round draft pick
  • Email from Alex with talk of DeSean Jackson
  • Eagles getting hot, gelling, showing balanced play calling… and we are getting sucked in
  • Watching the Cowboys self-destruct again is also worth it in December

Notes:

  • If you’re in South Jersey, stop into Swedesboro Stogies for a cigar!
  • Luis from Green Fans – The Movie called today and said that the DVD’s start shipping Wednesday morning!
  • Thanks to James in North Carolina for this week’s show name suggestion
