Home Field Advantage – EaglesFanCast 230

Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Oakland Raiders in an ugly game in a cold Philly. Eagles clinch the number one seed in the NFC with the win and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

So how do we feel? Anything but jubilant. We feel cautious, nervous, scared, irritated, and, well, pessimistic.

The Defense, while essentially winning the game, allowed big plays and executed poor tackling at times. And on Offense? Nick Foles was not the same player that he was the week before against the Giants. He got into trouble where he didn’t need to be, and was inaccurate on passes way more often than we would have liked.

As such, there is a real concern about the playoffs. Can Foles read and deal with the pressure of better Defenses? Can quality quarterbacks shred our Defense?

Many more questions than we are comfortable with for a 13-2 team with home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Well one more game of the regular season is in front of us, the Dallas Cowboys. This game means nothing. But Foles needs more chemistry and familiarity with his receivers, tight ends, and backs. Will be interesting to see what the coaches decide.

Giants, Playoffs, and Pro Bowl – EaglesFanCast 229

Ladies and gentlemen, the Philadelphia Eagles have clinched a first round BYE, and get to host the Divisional round! That was the good news of the win over the New York Giants. The bad news is the Eagles Defense allowed almost 500 yards from Eli Manning and the Giants Offense, considered one of the worst Offenses in the league.

There is concern, and the rest of the league’s analysts see a big concern. We see more of a Defense that was on its third road game, coming off two tough opponents in the Seahawks and Rams. We do expect the players and coaches to recover back to the very strong level they were weeks ago.

At this point, if the Eagles win one of their last two games, and the Vikings lose one game, the Birds have home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Todd throws out the comparison of stats between Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Amazing how close these two guys are. Quarterback controversy? LOL

Winless In Seattle – EaglesFanCast 227

The beginning of the Philadelphia Eagles west coast trip did not go as planned. Our Birds dropped the game to the Seattle Seahawks 24-10, and dropping their nine-game winning streak in the process. The loss leaves the Eagles with a 10-2 record, and still a win away from clinching the NFC East. Several factors came together such as fumbles, play calls, and coach Doug Pederson not challenging an illegal forward pass, to make plenty of fodder for the naysayers around the league.

But this Eagles team will be ready for the Los Angeles Rams this coming Sunday. Todd and Chuck believe the Eagles team will use this week in Anaheim to come to terms with the team they are, and where the mistakes were made, and how they missed opportunities to win in Seattle. We feel the Eagles will bounce back big time and level the Rams. Steve, on the other hand, said the Seattle loss has made him much more nervous about the Rams game than he was before.

Either way, Eagles fans are expected be arrive in force for the game in Los Angeles, much like they did when the Eagles played the Chargers last month.

The NFC East will belong to the Birds in Green, and with that the start of a new winning streak. Let’s do this, Eagles fans!

More Dominance – EaglesFanCast 226

The Philadelphia Eagles are back home for a week and host the Chicago Bears at Lincoln Financial Field. It didn’t go well for the Bears, as the Eagles dismantled every part of the Bears Defense and Offense, winning 31-3.

What else can be said at this point with the 10-1 Eagles? They are playing at a very high level, but not looking, at all, like they playing above themselves as either a team, or individual players. Each player that subs in during the game is simply another threat the other defense has to worry about.

And speaking of Defense, the Eagles version of it is ridiculous. They have upended Offensive Lines, quarterbacks, the run game and harassed receivers week after week. The Bears had six, SIX, rushing yards.

Next is the first of two big tests for the Eagles. They go out west and take on a very tough Seattle Seahawks. The week after, they travel down the west coast and meet up with the Los Angeles Rams. These are two high-powered teams, led by very good quarterbacks. This test comes at the perfect time in the season, where the Eagles can prove complete dominance of the league, or as a catalyst for the rest of the season to correct any outstanding negatives that are hiding in the team.

Either way, the Eagles “magic number” is one. If the Dallas Cowboys lose on Thursday, or the Eagles beat the Seahawks on Sunday, the NFC East belongs to the midnight green and silver.

These are good times, let’s enjoy every minute of this Autumn.

Banged Up – EaglesFanCast 212

The Washington Redskins come to Philly, and hand the Eagles a 27-22 loss. Several players left the game with injuries or cheap shots, and a few of those players are now on Injured Reserve. Overall it was not a bad or ugly loss for the Eagles, but it marked a point in yet another Divisional loss that pretty much seals this team’s season as a big loss.

We discuss many aspects of where the team is at this point, and a little of our disappointments in the team’s place in the season. They are rebuilding, that is the case, and we’ve known that for a while now. And the opinions are definitely split on the team as a whole; whether they are just bad all around with a good quarterback, or whether there is a base with several gaps to fill. Yes we are at that point in the season now, where we start looking forward to the future of the organization, and where the management can take us… eventually.
