Dallas Week the First – EaglesFanCast 174

EaglesFanCast Podcast

Here we go, the start of Dallas Week in Philadelphia.  The week that we put behind all previous games in the season, good and bad, and only look forward to one team: the Dallas Cowboys.  Even in the third quarter of the Eagles game on Sunday, when the Birds were beating the Tennessee Titans, the chants of “We want Dallas!” echoed at times.  The fans may have been looking ahead to the Cowboys game, but the Eagles were taking care of business at Lincoln Financial Field.  The Eagles beat the Titans handily 43-24, putting up a solid game after a bad defeat to the Packers the week before.  This was a solid effort that saw LeSean McCoy run for 130 yards and a touchdown, an opening kickoff return for a touchdown by Josh Huff, and Mark Sanchez throwing for over 300 yards and a touchdown, and the Eagles Defense racking up another five sacks.

The team was not without their major concerns, as Sanchez threw another two bad interceptions, and the secondary allowed more big plays.

But it’s behind us.  This week, on Thanksgiving Day here in America, the Eagles travel to the Jerry Jones Pleasure Palace to take on the Dallas Cowboys for sole possession of first place in the NFC East.  It’s a huge game obviously, but there are many concerns.  Either way, it’s a game everyone is looking forward to watching, and a game the Eagles have to find a way to win.

It’s Not Over – EaglesFanCast 173

EaglesFanCast Podcast

The Philadelphia Eagles were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers in frigid Lambeau Field, losing 53-20.  The Packers are the hottest team in the NFL now, and the Eagles had the unfortunate timing of meeting them now.  Many fans have panicked since the game, bashing quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shady McCoy, and even head coach Chip Kelly.  We are not at that point by any means.  Yes, the team under-performed on most sides of the ball this week, they turned the ball over another four times, we have our backup quarterback leading the Offense, and our star running back still has not found his 2013 form after ten games in.  They are 7-3, and tied for first place in the NFC East.  They play the Tennessee Titans in Philly this week, then close out the season with five NFC games, four of which are against the NFC East rivals.  This team can, and will, make the playoffs.  This loss is a wake up call for the team.  We have faith in the coaches to be able to pull this team together, prepare for each and every opponent the rest of the season, and produce a season we will be proud of.

Our good friend Steve Brown joins us to talk about the loss, and moving forward on the season!

It’s not over, Eagles fans… not by a long shot.  There is a lot of fun left to be had this season.  Stay tuned.

EaglesFanCast 95 – BYE Week Bender

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!

EaglesFanCast 94 – Green Birds of Prey

The Philadelphia Eagles pull together behind a stellar performance from backup (!?) quarterback Kevin Kolb and beat the Atlanta Falcons in Lincoln Financial Field, 31-17.  The day was warm, the sun was shining, and the Eagles had a 21-0 lead before the Falcons scored. Special Teams, Defense and Offensive Line all had a great day, and allowed Kolb to work his magic, while stopping the Falcons repeatedly. Unfortunately the day was not perfect, as we witnessed star receiver DeSean Jackson go out with a severe concussion after a terrifying hit, and ol’ reliable kicker David Akers miss three field goals.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Falcons in Philadelphia and travel next week to play the Tennessee Titans
  • WR Desean Jackson’s concussion and hit, plus we talk about other hard hits in the NFL this week
  • Kevin Kolb was phenomenal this week, completing 23 of 29 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns
  • The Defense stepped up, with King Dunlap making an remarkable turnaround from last week
  • Trent Cole was a monster, and Stewart Bradley looks like he’s improving as well
  • Tailgating this week was a lot of fun, with UK Steve visiting Philly on a sports tour that is becoming legendary, and Jason from Bleeding Green Nation hung with us as well.
  • We got to meet The Commissioner of Tailgating, Joe Cahn and talk with him about his tailgating adventures
  • EFC Fantasy Football updates wrap up the show along with an email from Dennis in Gettysburg and a couple of voicemails

Eagles Make Moves

Today the Philadelphia Eagles released DE Jevon Kearse. It’s definitely a sad day because I know a lot of Eagles fans had very high hopes that The Freak would bring his amazing play from Tennessee. His knee injury two seasons ago seemed to do him in, and he struggled quite a bit in the 2007 season. Sad to see him go, but it makes some room.

In other news, the Eagles and safety J.R. Reed agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

The Eagles and cornerback Joselio Hanson also agreed to a one-year deal. Hanson is a restricted free agent, and if another team signs him to an offer sheet, the Eagles have seven days to match that deal. A second-round compensatory draft pick is theirs if they decide not to match the offer.
