EaglesFanCast 111 – In Vick We Trust

The Philadelphia Eagles play their third preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on a rainy night in Philly, leaving only one game before the welcome start of the regular season.  The big news, though, is the new contract that the Eagles and quarterback Michael Vick agreed to yesterday. Although the details vary, essentially it is a 6-year $100 million deal with almost $40 million guaranteed for our starting QB.  We talk about what that means to DeSean Jackson’s contract extension that both he and the fans want.  Either way, we will see Vick leading the Offense in midnight green for years to come.

What we discussed:

  • The Eagles beat the Cleveland Browns in the third preseason game
  • Vick’s contract places him among the highest paid in the NFL
  • Jason Kelce is named the new starting Center
  • Both Danny Watkins and Kelce are starting rookies on the Offensive line, and it’s a concern for Vick’s safety
  • Linebackers discussion
  • The EFC Fantasy Football League will be back, and we will be using NFL.com this year. There will be 12 teams and the preliminary Draft date is set for Wednesday, September 7th.
  • EFC has partnered with GM, who will be loaning Eric and Chuck a couple of Chevrolet Camaro’s for a week to play with in September.  We encourage you to visit their site at www.drivingthenortheast.com and follow them on twitter, @GMNortheast

EaglesFanCast 97 – On The Road To Vicktory

LANDOVER, MD - NOVEMBER 15: Michael Vick  of the Philadelphia Eagles makes a break past Brian Orakpo  of the Washington Redskins on November 15, 2010 at FedExField in Landover, Maryland. (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images)

Our Philadelphia Eagles put on an historic display to an amazed football fanbase the world over on Monday Night Football, and defeat the Washington Redskins 59-28.  The Eagles showed poise, maturity, skill and discipline on every side of the ball for a critical NFC East game, and dominated from the first play of the game.  It was truly an exciting game, with twelve touchdowns scored in total, with the Eagles scoring six of their eight in the first half alone.  The Defense dominated as well, not allowing the Redskins to convert a third down the entire game, and despite Donovan McNabb throwing for two touchdowns, the Eagles D intercepted him three times.  But the true star of this game was Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.  Vick, in this game alone, completed his transformation into one of the most dangerous players in the NFL.  From this point forward, all other teams that face the Eagles will have to prepare unlike for any other game they played before. Overall it was an incredible game to watch, and ranks as one of the most impressive Eagles victories in franchise history.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles destroy the Redskins 59-28 in Washington on Monday Night Football
  • So much went right, on all sides of the ball
  • Multiple records were set in the game, Vick was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row, and the Football Hall of Fame requested Vick’s game jersey
  • Michael Vick’s transformation to the player he is now is nothing short of amazing
  • The Eagles Defense shut down many parts of the Redskins Offense, despite the four touchdowns given up
  • We talk about some of the team statistics, thanks to the work of Bleeding Green Nation
  • The Eagles next opponent is just as big, and is for sole first place in the NFC East, at home against the New York Giants
  • Some fantasy football talk

EaglesFanCast 95 – BYE Week Bender

NASHVILLE, TN - OCTOBER 24: Kenny Britt  of the Tennessee Titans catches a pass while defended by Nate Allen  of the Philadelphia Eagles during the NFL game at LP Field on October 24, 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Titans won 37-19. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

We took a BYE week early, as a hard drive crash prevented us from recording after the Eagles – Titans game last week. But we are back with an extra week to nurse our wounds after the Eagles disintegrate in the fourth quarter of that game.  All is not lost as other teams in the NFC look to be on a downward spiral, plus we get some injured players back into the starting lineup. A very tough game is coming up this week after the BYE, as the hot Indianapolis Colts pay a visit to the City of Brotherly Love on Sunday. Also joining us this week for our annual BYE week tradition is Jason Brewer from the excellent Bleeding Green Nation.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Tennessee Titans as inexperience in players and coaching lead to an ugly 4th quarter
  • Ellis Hobbs appears to have been demoted, or he is injured, we are not sure. Regardless, Dmitri Patterson replaces him in the cornerback position.
  • Inexperience definitely played a factor in last week’s loss to the Titans
  • Jason Peters will be back in his starting slot, and should stay away from microphones
  • Michael Vick is also back from his injury and takes the starting quarterback role from Kevin Kolb
  • The Indianapolis Colts scare the hell out of us this week
  • We broach the obvious topic: Donovan McNabb and his current issues in Washington
  • Former Eagle Jon Runyan is now a member of the U.S. House of Representatives!

Mike Patterson Arrested

Eagles DT Mike Patterson is facing marijuana possession charges after being arrested on Saturday, February 16th in Evesham Township. Police pulled Patterson over, along with his older brother Tyrone, for a minor traffic violation and when they approached the car they smelled burning marijuana. Patterson was charged for possessing under 50g of the wacky tobaccy and was released.

I just do not get it. Why in the world can’t these athletes get it through their abnormally thick skulls that for the time that they are active players and making ridiculous amounts of money, they need to stay out of trouble and not do anything stupid and/or illegal? I mean, I do not give a damn if they want to waste their money and their lives smoking pot, but do it when you are out of the public eye and serving as a “role model” for the youth of today!! There is not much that infuriates me more than to see these young athletes get handed the opportunity of a lifetime and then do stupid stuff to ruin it.
