Like so many of our years before, we are joined by the one and only Tommy Lawlor this week for his amazing analysis of the Eagles needs and fits in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Only a few days until the Draft kicks off Thursday night, and only a small handful of people inside the Philadelphia Eagles organization know what they have planned.  The Eagles fans, analysts, and Draft geeks can only speculate what this unpredictable organization will do by the end of the upcoming weekend.  Chip Kelly has surprised and wowed many for the past few months, leading some to speculate he is a genius and others to proclaim him insane.  Either way it has been entertaining, and the excitement leads right up to this particular Draft, which some Eagles media has been talking about since the middle of the 2014 season, because of one player, Marcus Mariota.

We discuss Mariota and what he would bring to the team, and what the Eagles would have to give up to get him.   From there we move on and Tommy opens the floodgates of his college football player knowledge past and present.  We go position by position on both Offense and Defense and talk about the needs, wants, and who the Eagles might pick up, and when.

Players like TJ Clemmings, Jake Fisher, or Brandon Sherff could be the Eagles newest Offensive Lineman.  We talked about the Cornerback and Safety needs, and players Quentin Rollins, Eric Rowe, Adrian Amos, Damarious Randall, and Byron Jones are all those that could fit Eagles needs.

No one has it figured out yet, but we have a feeling it’s going to be an exciting night for Eagles fans as we welcome the newest to wear midnight green.

We are joined tonight by our original team member, Eric Grigg!  We start the discussions with the latest entry into the Eagles quarterback pool, arguably  controversial, Tim Tebow.  It surprised a lot of Eagles fans considering coach Chip Kelly’s other moves at the position this offseason.  With five quarterbacks right now, it’s going to be an interesting offseason, especially with the NFL Draft only a couple weeks away.

But next, just tonight the NFL 2015 schedule was released, and we break down our feelings on the season, and speculate how the season will go.  If we have the caliber team we did in 2014, it will be a great year (and it is a huge IF at this point), and many eyes will be on the Eagles, as we have a lot of primetime games to play.

We are ready for 2015!  Let’s go Eagles!!

When the Philadelphia Eagles season ended, there were few doubts as to what the Eagles organization had to do to move into the 2015 season a better team.  Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez would be relegated to backup duties, if another QB wasn’t signed in the off-season, and plug several holes on the Defense, namely cornerback and safety.

But entering January, coach Chip Kelly became General Manager Chip Kelly, and Howie Roseman became the numbers guy for the organization, with all player personnel final decisions falling to Chip.  Then, March happened.  In a matter of days leading up to free agency, which officially kicked off the afternoon of March 10th, the Eagles team is practically unrecognizable from a player perspective.

At the end of February, the Eagles released TE James Casey and somewhat surprisingly, guard Todd Herremens, and the next week signed linebacker Brad Jones.  Rather standard so far.  The next day, fan favorite Trent Cole was cut, another salary cap release, along with cornerback Cary Williams.

Then things get, um, weird.

It is then reported that the Eagles will trade star running back LeSean (Shady) McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for ILB Kiko Alonso, who is coming off a serious injury.  This is a week before free agency officially starts, mind you.

Two days before free agency, quarterback Mark Sanchez is re-signed, to a two-year deal.  Now, free agent starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin still has not been paid, and fans are wondering what is going on.  We find out quickly as the Chiefs announce they agree to terms with Maclin, and he will be reunited with former Eagles head coach Andy Reid.  But on the somewhat positive side, Frank Gore has reportedly agreed to sign with the Eagles.  So the running game has been more solidified with the loss of McCoy.

The day before free agency, the Eagles re-sign Brandon Graham, and things are good.  Then Gore backs out, and instead signs with the Colts.  Now Eagles fans question EVERYTHING about what is going on, many panic, and many break ankles jumping off the Chipwagon.

Finally the day comes, free agency, March 10th.  Some things will be answered.  But wait!  The Eagles trade starting quarterback Nick Foles to the Rams for injured QB Sam Bradford!!  Many a “WTF” was seen on Twitter.  Rumors fly rampant in many directions, and no one seems to know what is going on.

Then the Eagles add CB Walter Thurmond, CB Byron Maxwell, and RB Ryan Matthews is coming to town with the intention of signing.  Busy as hell, and all good additions!

Then comes March 12th, today, and things still aren’t done!  The Eagles not only sign Thurmond, but also Dallas Cowboys running back, the 2014 yards league-leading DeMarco Murray, comes to town and signs a lucrative contract!!  As Murray’s car is tailed by media helicopters from the Philly airport to Eagles HQ, it gets reported that the Eagles are shopping around standout guard Evan Mathis!

Mayhem, absolute mayhem as an Eagles fan.  We don’t feel this is over yet, and we cover some of this on this episode of EaglesFanCast!

The Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Washington Redskins, and losing any possible opportunity for a playoff spot, but end on a high note, defeating the New York Giants, and completing a sweep of our NFC East rival, and ending the season with a 10-6 record.

For most Eagles fans, the game was bittersweet, as despite it always being fun to beat a Division rival (let alone sweep them), it ended a season where ten wins did not get you into the playoffs.  We now have to watch the Cowboys take their turn, and wait eight months to see our Eagles play again.  The end of a season is always a sad time, but it is made even more sad when our hopes were so high so late in the season, only to have them taken away.

Despite how the December games went, Eagles fans should have high hopes going into the off season.  This is a good team, with a good coaching staff, and players that want to play for the Eagles and nowhere else.  They are growing together, and players that were hit with devastating injuries will be healthy again next season.  With a few personnel moves by the organization, our Eagles could very well be back in the playoffs in 2015 with a damn good shot at it all.

Thank you to everyone for a great season!

The Dallas Cowboys came into Philly, and on a nationally-televised Sunday night game, trashed the Eagles in front of a stunned crowd at The Linc.  We not only saw the Eagles first home loss of the season, but we also so the NFC East race become much much longer.  With their win, the Cowboys took hold of first place in the Division, and all of a sudden the Eagles volatile season is in jeopardy.  Inconsistency and turnovers did the Birds in this game, and the Cowboys just didn’t make enough mistakes to keep the Eagles in the game.

Now we have to hope in another Cowboys loss, either to the Colts this week, or the Redskins in Week 17, and the Eagles have to beat both the Redskins this week, and the Giants in the last week of the season.  There are other scenarios that are possible for the Eagles to win the Division, but this first would be ideal.  Either way, the Eagles are not in control of their own playoff hunt.  The sad part is the Eagles could end the season with a very impressive 11-5 season, and still miss the playoffs.

We break all of this down, and more, with the always-brilliantTommy Lawlor, who sat down and we talked about the state of the Eagles at this late juncture of the season.

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.
