Controversy No More – EaglesFanCast 153

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles, led by Quarterback Nick Foles put on a horrendous display of Offense, and lost, at home, to the Dallas Cowboys 17-3.  The shock of the day (among many) was that Foles performed so poorly overall.  After stellar weeks coming in for the injured Vick, Foles started again against the Cowboys in a battle for first place in the NFC East.  Eagles fans were very hopeful for many reasons, one of which the expectation that Foles would help the Eagles break the home losing streak that goes back to September 2012.

Unfortunately the Eagles Offense played poorly, with Foles executing a professional NFL Offense like he just graduated high school.  He was inaccurate, he was hesitant to throw into coverage, he did not get rid of the ball fast enough, and he had much trouble deciphering the Cowboys’ Defensive attack.  All told, it was one of the worst Eagles games, possibly one of the worst NFL games, we have had the unfortunate luck to see.

On the more positive side, the Eagles Defense played well again, and truly seems to be improving week to week since the Broncos game back in Week 4 of the season.  Unfortunately with no Offense to put points on the board, the Eagles team was left high and dry at Lincoln Financial Field again, with our runners falling down without being touched, and players dropping passes when a pass was actually thrown to them.

All in all, we hope this was a minor stumble on the season for Foles, but we will not get to see how he recovers, as he will sit out with a concussion in the game against the New York Giants this coming Sunday.  Michael Vick will return from his hamstring injury and start the game, hoping to bring a win with him.  We all hope for that.

Manning Rolling – EaglesFanCast 150

EaglesFanCast PodcastWell as expected by most, the Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Denver Broncos. Not many expected the Broncos to put up 52 points, but in reality our Defense is struggling, and Peyton Manning is playing his best football ever. He also has the weapons needed to shred the struggling Eagles secondary, chew up the clock, and kept our Offense off the field.
This week the Eagles have yet another road game, and come back to the East coast to play the Division rivals New York Giants, who have yet to win a game this season. We hope to see plenty of Manningface on Sunday!

This is our 150th episode, and I wanted to say Thank You to all of our listeners for a lot of fun in our six plus years of doing this show. When we get caught up in the rest of our lives, we receive notes about doing our next show, we have listeners from all over the world that appreciate what we do, and we get even more messages that we just don’t have time to play or read each show. It’s amazing that a couple of goofballs like us can do this, and people want to listen. Seriously, thank you.

Talk it out!

Number 5 Retired – EaglesFanCast 149

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles lose their second game of the season, and slip to 1-2, with the unfortunate prospect of going to Denver to face the powerful Broncos this coming weekend.  The Kansas City Chiefs, helmed by new head coach Andy Reid, handed the Eagles yet another home loss.  Now the Eagles have not won a home game in over a year.  Eagles fans, nonetheless, welcomed Andy Reid back with much applause and cheers, properly thanking him for many years of successful Eagles teams and many years of hopeful seasons.

Also receiving a standing ovation and cheers was former quarterback Donovan McNabb, who the Eagles organization retired his number, 5, at a halftime ceremony.  Fan favorite (who also had HIS number 20 retired last year), Brian Dawkins was the emcee… and pretty much received as much in the way of cheering from the fans as did McNabb.  It was a memorable moment, a deserving moment as arguably the best quarterback in franchise history, yet marred by an Eagles team that did everything it could to hand the victory to Reid and the Chiefs.

This week the Eagles head a mile high, and battle a hot Peyton Manning.  Hopefully new head coach Chip Kelly will coach a way to score more or find a way to neutralize Manning.

Show your feelings!
