EaglesFanCast 67 – Raiders of the Lost Cause

The Philadelphia Eagles lose to the horrible Oakland Raiders in a game that pretty much everyone thought was a lock for a Win.  Almost every aspect of the team contributed to the embarrassment, from coaching, playcalling, tackling, passing, blocking and kicking.  We try to express some of what transpired since the game, what went wrong, and our concerns for the future.  Joining us this week is Cody Benjamin, from the Eagles fan blog, Bleed Green.

What we discussed:

  • Cody from Bleed Green joins us, and we ask him about his site
  • Who is to blame for this horrible loss? It might be easier to say who is not
  • Andy Reid shoulders the blame for this loss… no adjustments, and he was completely outcoached
  • Eagles trade with Rams at the deadline, picked up LB Will Witherspoon and sent them rookie WR Brandon Gibson
  • Donovan McNabb was under pressure all game, and he was too jumpy as a result
  • Stacy Andrews still looking tender, and may not be 100% for a while yet
  • email from Evan
  • email from Aussie Steve
  • email saying farewell to Trotter
  • email from Dr. Krug in Gettysburg
  • We are angry about this loss, and why?
  • We touch on what to be nervous about moving forward

EaglesFanCast 66 – Welcome Back McNabb

The Philadelphia Eagles take apart the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 33-14 in Philadelphia this week.  Quarterback Donovan McNabb returns from his rib injury, Jeremiah Trotter returns to the team, and Jeremy Maclin has a phenomenal game playing for the injured Kevin Curtis.  The win wasn’t without some negativity, but the Offense put together a solid game and helped Head Coach Andy Reid move to 11-0 after the BYE week.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 33-14, but although satisfying, it wasn’t fun to watch throughout
  • The game was frustrating because of the amount of penalties, poor officiating and just how bad Tampa Bay is
  • We talk about the play of McNabb, Westbrook, Maclin, Celek and more
  • Andy Reid’s rumored contract extension, and he is now 11-0 after the BYE
  • Email from Aussie Steve
  • Email from Alex
  • Steve from the UK put together 10 years of stats in a spreadsheet and has been analyzing the hell out of it showing how much Eagles fans love their football

We tried something new this week, as we incorporated a live chat during the show recording.  We wanted to get a live chat going so people could interact and participate while we record.  Then we realized that it would make more sense if you could hear what we were talking about.  So we configured a channel over at ustream.  We tested it out, and it was a success, and we had a bunch of people in the chat room checking out the scene and we only let people know a few minutes beforehand!  Awesome time, thanks to everyone who came and visited.

We’ll be doing this each week when we record from now on since the live feedback was all positive.  Bookmark our channel at http://ustream.tv/channel/EaglesFanCast, and register for an account, so you can join in the chat!

EaglesFanCast Episode 47 – A Christmas Miracle

Show Notes: Episode 47 for December 30th, 2008

Playoffs!?!? That’s right, the Philadelphia Eagles clinched the last NFC Wildcard spot by defeating, nay, crushing the Dallas Cowboys 44-6 at Lincoln Financial Field. In front of a frenzied crowd in South Philly, the Eagles took care of things in dominating fashion on both sides of the ball. Our Offense played tight, and our Defense caused five turnovers, two of which were returned for spectacular touchdowns. They didn’t let the Cowboys breathe the whole game, and embarrassed the team that most thought would easily take the NFC East this season. Instead the Cowboys flew back to Texas, and the Eagles are on their way to Minnesota to take on the Vikings in the NFC Wildcard Game.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles are in the Playoffs!
  • Eric and Chuck sold their tickets to the game, and feel like idiots
  • Andy Reid looked relaxed, happy and definitely appeared he knew something the Cowboys didn’t
  • Brian Dawkins was an animal and played out of his mind
  • Email from Alex, who called us out on last week’s show
  • Is it hard for teams to now prepare for our schizophrenic Offensive Scheme this season?
  • Andy Reid’s game plan definitely dictates the outcome of the game; if it’s good, the team is great, if bad, he can’t adjust and the team looks horrible
  • We were all big Oakland Raiders fans this week
  • Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell talked about the tie against Cincinnati and how Reid’s controversial call in that game actually saved our playoff hopes
  • Email from Aussie Eagle, who talks about how this game saved Reid for the team, which ultimately he’s not happy about
  • Eric is certain about the Eagles victory in Minnesota this week
  • We trash the Cowboys some more
  • Email from Phil in England, who praises the Eagles win, and wonders which team will show up against the Vikings
  • Email from Corey in Baltimore, with renewed enthusiasm
  • Aussie Mike writes in about the game, and us visiting Australia, which we would love to do
  • What we are doing this week for the Eagles-Vikings game
  • Great email from Thomas in El Paso, Texas
  • Email from Stephen in Melbourne, Australia who talks about the Sav Rocca Effect for Aussie Eagles fans, and Reid’s hopeful New Year’s Resolution: RUN THE BALL
  • Email from Jimmy Craichead in Philly, who found his youthful optimism and put Scrooge to sleep
  • An article on Monday by Minneapolis CBS Affiliate WCCO talked about how there were 20,000 seats still available for the Eagles-Vikings game, and the team is srambling to sell tickets so it is not locally blocked out… it’s unbelievable to us
  • Jerry Jones says Wade Philips is still the coach moving forward, and we wholeheartedly applaud his decision, and hope Wade stays for years to come

Thanks!

  • … to Thomas in Texas for this week’s Title suggestion
  • … to Fred for the customized new Cowboys Stadium paver image (anyone want to chip in?)
  • … to all of you for making all of this worth it. Here’s to a great 2009, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
