Birds – EaglesFanCast 166

EaglesFanCast PodcastWe are back after a long and unwanted hiatus.  We do want to thank all of you for the messages during our absence, but technically and personally all is well and we are moving forward with the show.

The Philadelphia Eagles are now 3 wins and 1 loss on the season, and that loss against the San Francisco 49ers really shook Eagles fans up.  Despite the team putting up 21 points, none of those points came from our explosive Offense, which fizzled this week.  Quarterback Nick Foles had an off game, throwing two interceptions and missing several receivers.  Our very depleted Offensive Line did not protect Foles, nor were able to open the gates for Shady McCoy or Darren Sproles.  There were dropped passes and two fumbles lost to tie up a poor outing on the day.  Overall they only gained 213 yards of total Offense, of which only 22 yards rushing.  Painful.  One of the few standouts was from Jeremy Maclin, who continues to shine week after week.  The Eagles Defense did well, including a pick-six by Malcolm Jenkins in the second quarter.

Without a doubt, the standout group in the game was the Special Teams unit.  Early in the first quarter the Eagles blocked a 49er punt, which was run back for a touchdown putting the Birds on the scoreboard first in the game.  Then in the second quarter, a 49er punt to Darren Sproles amounted to an 82 yard return for a touchdown.  At that point it put the Eagles on top 21-10, with the promise the Eagles Offense would add much to that total the rest of the game.  That did not happen, and the Offense needs to figure out what went wrong, and how to fix it.  Lane Johnson returning to the lineup will be one of those fixes.

This week the Eagles are hosting the St. Louis Rams who are 1-2 on the season.  There will be a very loud crowd there to greet them at The Linc!

EaglesFanCast 63 – Kolb’s Debut

This week’s Philadelphia Eagles game was a big one.  It was quarterback Kevin Kolb’s debut as a starter, filling in for the injured Donovan McNabb.  It was the home opener.  It was against a very tough NFC opponent in the New Orleans Saints.  Well the Eagles rebounded off a great performance against the Panthers last week, and underachieved, made mistakes, and took themselves out of a game.  We chat about how Kolb looked out there, what went wrong with the team to lose in such an embarrassing way, the wildcat offense, and field some emails from listeners that have concerns.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to Saints 48-22
  • Kevin Kolb impressed, and we feel he finally earned his spot on the roster
  • Special Teams was just horrendous
  • Is Andy Reid losing control of the team?
  • The wildcat offense was used a lot in this game, is this the new Eagles Offense?
  • Brent Celek had a big game with 101 yards
  • Email from Dennis
  • Email from Holden
  • Email from Alex
  • We talk about the Kansas City Chiefs game this coming week
