EaglesFanCast 76 – One To Go

The Philadelphia Eagles had a big week, winning their sixth straight game by defeating the Denver Broncos in Philly, welcoming back Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter, and seeing six of their players make it to the Pro Bowl.  But what is bigger than this week is what they have coming up next… the Dallas Cowboys, the NFC East, and a first-round BYE in the playoffs.  We do our best to break it all down from the fans’ point of view, and hear from other fans in the process as the 2009 NFL regular season comes to a close in the Eagles biggest game of the season.  Hold on tight, everyone, our playoffs start this week in Dallas!

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Denver Broncos, 30-27, and have won their last six games
  • Eric reads an email from AussieMike from November, who mentioned that if the Eagles went 12-4 on the season, he would walk bare-assed down Bourke Street
  • Eric talks about how Lincoln Financial Field received Brian Dawkins back home
  • We talk about Jamaal Jackson’s season-ending injury, and what it means to this Offense
  • Aussie Steve calls in a voicemail
  • How huge is this game against Dallas this week?!
  • Playoff scenarios in the NFC
  • Where we are watching the game
  • Email from Dean in Birmingham, England
  • Email from Reverend Jim in Brisbane, Australia

EaglesFanCast 74 – Giant Sweep

The Philadelphia Eagles travel up the New Jersey Turnpike for their last regular season game at Giants Stadium, and in an epic Eagles-Giants battle, win 45-38.  Not only do the Eagles sweep the Giants this year, but with the Dallas Cowboys loss earlier in the day, the Eagles wind up alone in first place in the NFC East.  All aspects of the team contributed to the victory, and the team showed an enormous amount of character in the face of a tough Giants Offense.  Our confidence builds as the regular season approaches the last few weeks, and we can start to see the playoffs in our sights.

What we discussed:

  • Explosive Offense kept the Giants Defense guessing
  • If Brian Westbrook comes back, a fear is that Andy Reid will revert to an unbalanced Offense again
  • Michael Vick is getting more comfortable out there
  • Email from Steve asking about the Vick / McNabb change in Offense and how it can confuse Defenses
  • Email from KC in Gettysburg, which sparks a conversation of the playoffs are just not enough
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA bringing up the point of the Eagles D having continued troubles tackling
  • Voicemail from DQ in NY, talking about Vick being traded for no better than a 5th round draft pick
  • Email from Alex with talk of DeSean Jackson
  • Eagles getting hot, gelling, showing balanced play calling… and we are getting sucked in
  • Watching the Cowboys self-destruct again is also worth it in December

Notes:

  • If you’re in South Jersey, stop into Swedesboro Stogies for a cigar!
  • Luis from Green Fans – The Movie called today and said that the DVD’s start shipping Wednesday morning!
  • Thanks to James in North Carolina for this week’s show name suggestion

EaglesFanCast 62 – Panther Smackdown

The Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 38-10 in a bittersweet win as we also lose our quarterback Donovan McNabb to a broken rib on a late touchdown run.  The Eagles make a lot of moves with some familiar names in the last day in response to McNabb’s injury. Jeff Garcia returns to the Birds, Michael Vick is activated so he can start practicing, and to make room, Guard Shawn Andrews is placed on the IR and Wide Receiver Hank Baskett is cut. An overwhelming news day, and we bring it all to you in typical Green style.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles rout the Panthers 38-10
  • New Defensive Coordinator Sean  McDermott called a great game and alleviated any concerns that he can lead this Defense through the year
  • Trent Cole looked amazing
  • McNabb’s injury play is debated
  • Quarterback Kevin Kolb didn’t impress (again) and he now has the opportunity of his young career this coming week against the New Orleans Saints
  • Email from Dennis from Gettysburg, PA
  • Brian Westbrook’s option was not signed by the Eagles today, leaving him a free agent in 2010
  • Jeff Garcia in, Hank Baskett out, Shawn Andrews out and Michael Vick activated
  • Sheldon Brown had two interceptions in a great performance
  • We talk further about the Saints coming to down this week

EaglesFanCast Episode 44 – The Westbrook Show

Show Notes: Episode 44 for Tuesday, December 9, 2008

The Philadelphia Eagles march up the New Jersey Turnpike, then Brian Westbrook marches all over the New York Giants.  The men in Green take their new confidence and beat the Giants 20-14 in a game where our running game ruled and Eli Manning’s passes were dropped.  Despite the win, we try to find optimism as this was the Eagles dominant team that should be in the playoffs, not struggling (and hoping) to make a Wildcard spot.

What we discussed:

  • Brian Westbrook lit up the Giants, again, with 203 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns
  • B West looked amazing and Eric has a lt of stats to back it
  • We aren’t as excited as we normally should be, and we discuss why
  • The confidence in Andy Reid still is not there, as we’re not sure how he will handle the game plans for the remaining games
  • Email from Alex, who was psyched about the Eagles big win over the Giants
  • Email from Steve, who caught the game at the airport
  • There were three blocked Field Goals in this game, one returned for a Giants TD
  • Contest Winners announced for the DirecTV Eagles-branded remote controls… congrats to both Dave from California and Steve from San Francisco!!
  • We talked about the Plaxico Burress effect on the Giants team, or was there one?
  • Early Eagles playoff scenarios
  • The talk shifts to the Dallas Cowboys, and their impending demise

Eagles cut DE Jevon Kearse

In a move that suprised absolutely no one, the Eagles officially severed ties with DE Jevon Kearse this morning. In his first two years with the Eagles, Kearse recorded 7.5 sacks each season. In 2006, he appeared to be off to a career year with 3.5 sacks in his first two games, but suffered a devastating knee injury against the Giants in an overtime period the Eagles should not have even been in courtesy of their 4th quarter choke job where they went conservative and gave up a huge lead.

Now that Kearse is officially gone, the Eagles head into this year’s free agency period with Trent Cole and Juqua Thomas as the starters at defensive end, with second-year man Victor Abiamiri as the primary backup. Somehow, Jerome McDougle is still on the Eagles roster and is rumored to be planning on showing up at Training Camp healthy and ready to go.

Faced with this situation, head coach Andy Reid has made it be known that the Eagles want to improve their pass rush. No kidding.
