The Eagles come off their big win in Big D and laid an egg at The Linc in Philadelphia.  Our Birds lost to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday afternoon 24-14 in front of a stunned home crowd.  The fans were loud, but it wasn’t what our Offense needed in the game, which was essentially flacid on the day.  The Eagles put up a horrid 139 yards of total yards on the day, converting only two 3rd downs, and only getting nine 1st downs.  They couldn’t get anything going, and quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for only 96 yards.

It was a performance that has left a number of fans and sports analysts now questioning how good this Eagles team really is.  They have all of their games to teams with winning records in the playoff hunt, not a good place to be approaching a playoff possibility.

The Eagles Defense played well, but when your Offense doesn’t put in what is needed… points, yards, clock… it cannot sustain.  The Seahawks Defense was good all day, and they played like the champions they are.

The bright spot on the day was LeSean McCoy, who broke Wilbert Montgomery’s all-time rushing record as an Eagle.  Congratulations to Shady!

Next up on the list is again the Dallas Cowboys.  The two NFC East Division rivals meet for the second time in three weeks, this time in Philadelphia for a Sunday night matchup.  After the Eagles embarrassed the Cowboys in Dallas, and with the Division on the line, this game is setting up to be a classic.  For both teams, this win is crucial with the Division, and most likely the playoffs, on the line.  It is Dallas Week again, Eagles Fans!  This time we’re home, and we’ll welcome the Cowboys to town appropriately.

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.

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.

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.

Our worries about how the Eagles would recover from losing their starting quarterback (Nick Foles), and their star defenseman (DeMeco Ryans) were put to rest as the Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 45-21 on Monday Night Football.  The Eagles fans were loud and thrilled in one of the more exciting blowout wins since, well, the Eagles took care of the Giants a few weeks ago.  The new starting quarterback Mark Sanchez made his first start in over two years, and handily used his weapons in the win, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns.  Rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews was the main target on the night, snagging both of Sanchez’s touchdown passes.  On the other side of the ball, the re-adjusted Eagles Defense had a monster night, racking up nine (!) sacks and grabbing five turnovers, with a TD or two thrown in for good measure.  That’s not all, as the Eagles Special Teams made yet another statement with Darren Sproles returning another punt for a touchdown.  It was an amazing game, with numerous positives on the night.  Is it a Sanchize?

This week, though, the Eagles have a huge test ahead of them as they take on the Green Bay Packers on the road.  It is never easy to play the Pack in Lambeau Field, and after Aaron Rodgers threw for six touchdowns this past week in the Packers’ vivisection of the Chicago Bears.  This week will show many aspects of the Eagles character, preparation, coaching, and heart.

The Eagles of Philadelphia took a huge step this week, with an increased run game, and took down the Houston Texans down in Houston, 31-21.  Starting quarterback Nick Foles again struggled with turnovers, throwing an interception which resulted in Houston running it back for a touchdown.  At the end of the first quarter, Foles was sacked, and left the game with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.  On Monday, it was confirmed that Foles has a cracked clavicle.  This is an injury that may take six to eight weeks to recover from, if not longer.  Mark Sanchez took over for Foles, and will remain the starter for the foreseeable future.  Sanchez fit right into Chip Kelly’s Offense, and helped bring the Eagles to a win.  And with another Cowboys loss, it puts the Eagles back in first place in the NFC East.

An even bigger loss on the day was in the form of DeMeco Ryans.  Ryans intercepted Texans’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and as he started to run, went down, then fumbled the ball.  What appeared to be an ankle injury was much worse, and a torn Achilles will now put Ryans on Injured Reserve the rest of the season.  This is a significant loss for the Eagles Defense, not only from Ryans’ athletic ability on the field, which has been stellar, but from a leadership role.  He’s the leader of that Defense, the person that pulls the team together, motivates, and inspires.  We will have to see how Billy Davis adjusts the D to compensate for such a huge loss.  The first thing they did is sign safety Chris Prosinski, a free agent safety who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this year.

The Philadelphia Eagles drop their second game of the season to the Arizona Cardinals 24-20 on the road.  The injured Offensive Line forced coach Chip Kelly to cut down on the running game severely, and quarterback Nick Foles attempted 62 passes on the day.  Foles also added another two interceptions on the season, both costly.  He is definitely struggling this season in big ways, and the concerns are that he is not fixing what is wrong from week to week.  On top of that, the Eagles secondary are giving up big plays every game, where they are getting beat, or not even putting up much of a defense when balls are incoming.  Regardless, the Eagles of Philly are 5-2 on the season, and second place in the NFC East as we approach the halfway point of the season.  The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Washington Redskins, which keeps the lead tight.  We’d be silly if we didn’t mention Jeremy Maclin’s standout performance this week, who caught 12 of Foles’ passes for an amazing 187 yards and two touchdowns.  A stellar performance.

Todd shares his experiences at the tailgate and then in the stadium itself this week, as he was there at the Eagles-Cardinals game.  He definitely wasn’t alone in green, as there were easily 10,000 other screaming Eagles fans at the game in the desert.  They were easily heard and seen on the TV coverage, and it made all of us proud.

This week the Eagles remain on the road, and head to Houston to take on the Texans.  On paper the Texans are the weaker team, and the Eagles get back a few players that have been out with injuries, most notably Darren Sproles and Jason Kelce.  It’s good to see Kelce getting back, but Todd Herremans’ torn biceps might limit his effectiveness, but if anyone can play through that pain, it’s Herremans.

The BYE week is upon us, and we all missed our Eagles playing this week.  The good thing about the BYE is that the team rested, and some of our injured players nursed their wounds another week without missing play time.  In their absence, though, the Dallas Cowboys won yet another game (against the New York Giants), going to 6-1 on the season, and shifting the Birds to second place in the NFC East.  This week we have both Tommy Lawlor and Steve Brown on with us to talk about the Eagles season to date, and how other teams in the league are lining up so far.

This week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals will be a very tough showing for Nick Foles, Shady McCoy, and the rest of the Offense, as the Cardinals have one of the better Defenses in the league.  The BYE week time off will rejuvenate the team, and if we get the running game established early, the Eagles Defense will keep the Cardinals’ Offense in check, and the Eagles will win the game down in Arizona.

We talk about a bit of the history of the Fly Eagles Fly fight song, and how it has become part of the heart of the Eagles team and fans everywhere.  Quarterbacks past and present, mobile and pocket, are also discussed and what seems to work and where they don’t.  It depends on the QB and his weapons, and it all factors in.

So, the New York Giants travel down the New Jersey Turnpike after a week of talking trash about the Eagles, come into Lincoln Financial Field and stomp on our Eagles logo…. then absolutely get whomped by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football in front of a national audience.  The Eagles, all in black, shut out the Giants, 27-0.  The last time an Eagles team shut out an opponent was 18 years ago (again it was the Giants).  This was way overdue, and it was overdue that the team came to full dominance on both sides of the ball.  Not to be out-done, Special Teams still had a partial blocked punt in the game, which they continue to shine week after week.  On Offense, quarterback Nick Foles looked better, but still has some fixing to do, as he threw two horrible interceptions, that in a normal game could have been costly.  I say “normal game” because the Eagles Defense absolutely man-handled the Giants Offensive Line, sacking Giants QB Eli Manning 8 times!!  Three of those sacks were recorded by Connor Barwin, and two by Vinny Curry.  The Defense played as great as they could, keeping the entire Giants Offense off-balance the entire game, and it was a great sight to see.  Even at the end of the game, when the Giants desperately did everything they could to get within Field Goal range… even using all three of their timeouts within the last 1:10 of regulation (douche move, Coughlin!!), the Defense was there to complete the shutout, and fully shut the lights out in the Blackout Game Sunday night.  Almost 70,000 fans were out of their minds, except for these two guys.  LOL

It was a great game, with a great ending, in a great stadium, surrounded by the greatest fans in the world.

The Philadelphia Eagles maintained their first place hold on the NFC East by beating the St. Louis Rams at The Linc 34-28.  The Eagles Offense has been outscored by their opponent’s Offense two weeks straight now, but the Eagles Special Teams and Defense are helping to put points up on the board.  The Eagles Offense has been sputtering, partly because of a depleted O-line, but also because of miscues and costly turnovers.  But as many say, a Win is a Win, and the Eagles have chalked up four of them in the first five games of the season.  This week the Eagles play host to the Division rivals New York Giants, a team that has been surging lately, and seems to have found their way in this season.  The game is on Sunday evening, and the world will be watching.  Will the struggling Birds show up again this week, or will the team show that it is learning from the many mistakes, and put together an attack against the Giants on both sides of the ball?  Either way, there will be an amped-up fanbase in attendance, who are already buzzing for this game.  It’s a great and exciting time to be an Eagles fan.  Granted our hearts may not always agree, but this is what it is all about.  We bleed green, and expect nothing short of all out heart from our players and coaches.

This week’s game is why we tune in, why we buy the tickets, why we arrive seven hours early to tailgate.  It’s about the love of a team, and the hard work that represents what the city of Philadelphia was built on.

E-A-G-L-E-S…… EAGLES!!
