Snow Bowl – EaglesFanCast 160

EaglesFanCast PodcastLet’s play some football in the snow!  In case you were living deep in the Caribbean this past week, you heard about the snowstorm that hit Philadelphia, dropping around eight inches of the white stuff during the game.  Reports called for an inch or two, then turning to sleet and rain in the afternoon.  They received the type of snow that made for legendary games, and the Eagles played to that caliber.  Shady McCoy set a personal and Eagles single-game record, plowing through 217 yards on the ground.  The Eagles Defense played and adjusted, and played and adjusted.  Overall they only allowed just eight points and made the Lions look like they were playing football on a snow day.

It was one of the greatest Eagles games I have ever seen, and at the time I was not believing what I was seeing at all.  Not in the Birds’ play themselves, but in the way the game played out.  It was fun, it was surreal at times, and it was a classic.  I wish I was there, but still enjoyed every second of it on the small screen regardless.  Our Eagles plowed through the snow, the Lions, and thanks to the Cowboys first step in their December implosion… first place in the NFC East.

EaglesFanCast 103 – Playoff Fever

The Philadelphia Eagles win the NFC East, and take the #3 seed in the NFC for the playoffs.  They lose the last two games of the regular season to the Minnesota Vikings in an ugly display of football, and the Dallas Cowboys in a meaningless game.  In the Wildcard game, the Eagles host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 4:30pm.  Lots of concerns for this game, as the Packers are playing very well, and the Eagles ended on a down note, and quite beat up.  Regardless, it’s still another exciting year of Eagles playoffs, and the only team from the East in the playoffs, capping off a surprise and unbelievable regular season.  Cannot wait for this game to start!

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Vikings and Cowboys to end the regular season.  Should we be concerned?
  • Eagles are favored over the Packers by 2.5 points, but this game does not look good on paper for our Birds
  • Not a whole lot of excitement being displayed by fans so far, and we talk about whether it’s concern or Eagles fans are used to a playoff team now
  • Our esteemed cohost Eric becomes the first winner of the EFC Fantasy Football league
  • NiDice returns this year with a brand new awesome song called “Eagles Young Guns”, and we play it for you with permission

Words barely can relate the exuberance the Eagles fans felt this past Sunday after erasing a 21-point deficit to the New York Giants.  The Eagles scored 28 unanswered points and found something in them that allowed them to execute one of the best comeback victories in the history of the NFL.  They put themselves firmly in first place in the NFC East with only two games left in the regular season, and now poised for a playoff berth.  It was an amazing victory on all sides of the ball, and they effectively changed the way every team now views the Philadelphia Eagles. No opponent can feel confident in a win, and every Eagles player now has the confidence that they can win every game no matter the circumstance or who they are lining up against.  It is a team of heart now, they believe it, and so do we.

Joining us on this week’s show is Tom McAllister, the author of the book, Bury Me In My Jersey: A Memoir of My Father, Football, and Philly

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the New York Giants, 38-31, scoring 28 points in the final eight minutes
  • We go over the negative aspects of the game, meaning the first half and Andy Reid’s no challenge in the third quarter
  • Chuck turned the game off when the Eagles were losing 31-10 and turned it back on at 31-31
  • The Eagles own the Giants, winning six straight games over them
  • Michael Vick seemed to get better, with more stamina, in that fourth quarter
  • Somehow we get comparisons to Donovan McNabb, and talk about how this team is so much better, with a new confidence, without him behind center in Philly
  • We talk about Tom McAllister’s book, his inspirations for it, and what went into it
  • The Eagles take on the Minnesota Vikings this week in a game that was flexed to 8:00

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!
