False Hope – EaglesFanCast 187

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles lost the home opener to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.  The Eagles were less than ineffective in the game, and it was unbelievable to watch.  Our Defense were able to hold the Cowboys most of the game, but the Eagles Offense could not do anything.  There was no run threat, there was no passing that could be used to get anything moving forward.  The Eagles even had a punt blocked and returned for a touchdown.

Bottom line is, nothing went right in this game.  We heard from several people this week and there was anger, depression, but everyone blamed Chip Kelly and his approach to this team.

Should we as fans hit the real panic button yet?  We’re not sure, but right now things do not look good.  They have dug themselves a big hole, and the rest of this season is not going to be easy, at all.  Our next game is on the road against a now-tough New York Jets team.  This will not be easy.

Dallas Beatdown – EaglesFanCast 175

EaglesFanCast Podcast

A huge, HUGE win for the Philadelphia Eagles knocking out the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium last week.  The Eagles performed great on all sides of the ball, and outscored the Cowboys 33-10.  The Defense was great, the Offense was great, and the Cowboys never could get anything going on their side of the ball at all.  Our fast-paced Offense had the Cowboys Defense winded in the second quarter of the game, which allowed Mark Sanchez to use many of his weapons and run a solid attack.  Our quarterback had no turnovers in this game, which hopefully built his confidence, which was needed.  Star running back LeSean McCoy had another great week, putting 158 yards on the ground, while Jeremy Maclin had 108 yards receiving.  Our Defense continued their assault on opponents’ QB’s, racking up another four sacks on the day.

And congratulations to Conner Barwin, who earned the NFC Defensive Player of the Month!

In just a few days, the reigning champion Seattle Seahawks visit Philadelphia, and it is a statement game for the Eagles.  Winning on Sunday can help erase most of the doubts cast in the Packers game a few weeks’ back, and go a long way toward a playoff spot.

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.

Finish It – EaglesFanCast 162

EaglesFanCast PodcastWe talked last week after the loss to the Vikings that it was a gut check, and we had confidence that the Philadelphia Eagles would overcome and play hard against the Chicago Bears when they came to Philly on Sunday Night Football.  We were right, in a huge way.  Earlier in the day, the Washington Redskins had the opportunity to beat the Cowboys, and the Eagles could have won the NFC East with a win at home against the Bears.  It did not happen, and the Eagles game meant much less.  On the other hand, the Bears were playing for something.  What resulted was a solid, old-school thrashing with the Eagles coming out on top, 54-11.  All sides of the ball were in top form, and a message was sent to the NFL that the Eagles mean business, are playing in top form, and can possibly beat any team in the league on any Sunday.  They have another chance this Sunday night, in the last game of the 2013 NFL regular season in Big D.  The Eagles and Cowboys play for the Division title, and a spot in the playoffs.  The loser goes home.

Think about that for a minute.  We joked at the beginning of the season when we talked about Week 17 playing the Cowboys, and how it may mean something!  Very very few Eagles fans thought this team would be in this situation, and (as of Thursday night) being a 7-point favorite IN Dallas.  What a ride this season has been so far.  And it is NOT over.  This week the Eagles and Chip Kelly have the opportunity to finish it, and with style.  We cannot wait for this game.  Sunday night cannot come fast enough.

We also want to thank all of our listeners and followers out there during the holiday season.  We gained many new listeners, had some great guests, enjoyed many hours of fun on twitter, and have had an amazing year.  The encouragement and feedback have kept us going, and it has been very much worth it.  We hope all of you have had a great holiday season, no matter what you celebrate, or how.  To us it is about community and a shared love of the Eagles.  Thank you to everyone for being a part of what we do here.

-CHUCK and TODD

In Foles We Trust – EaglesFanCast 152

EaglesFanCast PodcastThe Philadelphia Eagles beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Sunshine State 31-20.  The Eagles move to 3-3 on the year, and remain tied for the top of the NFC East.  But what was most important in the game is the performance of Quarterback Nick Foles.  With Michael Vick sitting out to rest his hamstring, Foles commanded the Eagles Offense over a tough Bucs D, throwing for three touchdown passes, AND running in another.  Riley Cooper had 120 yards and a TD, DeSean Jackson had 64 yards and two TD’s, Shady McCoy added another 55 yards receiving on two receptions, and another five Eagles caught passes on the day… all adding up to Foles’ 296 passing yards.  Where was the running game?  Healthy, thanks to McCoy’s 116 yards (on 25 rushes) on the ground, with Bryce Brown also carrying five times for 20 yards.  A bunch of stats, but it proves a poing: Foles had confident command of that Offense that day.

As such, we talk about the Foles-Vick situation in Philly.  Which quarterback should lead this team moving forward?  Has Vick really lost the job, and has Foles really won it yet?  Does there need to be a change, or should the Eagles think to the future and develop Foles into the future leader they think he could be?  Right now there is no way to know what coach Chip Kelly is going to do.  It seems that Vick is comfortable sitting until his hamstring is fully healed, and why not?  Foles helped orchestrate a win over the Giants, and commanded a victory over the Bucs.

But this week there is a significant test.  The Dallas Cowboys visit Lincoln Financial Field, a place where the Eagles have not won since September of 2012.  Romo and the Cowboys Offense have put up significant points and yards, and the Eagles Defense is still not stellar by any stretch.  Whichever quarterback gets the call, they will be looking for a division win, and first place alone in the NFC East.  It’s going to be an interesting week.

There is a time for everything, and now is the time to reach out to us…
