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

The Philadelphia Eagles travel down to Texas and put a whoopin' on the Dallas Cowboys, the hosts of the Super Bowl.  So much for playing the spoilers to the teams in the hunt for the playoffs this year. Whether an ugly win, a Texas-style stompin' or a shootout, an Eagles win over the Cowboys always makes for a good week. But the Eagles couldn't rest long, as the biggest game of the season lurks this week as they travel up the New Jersey Turnpike and take on the New York Giants for the battle for first place in the NFC East Division.  Both teams currently share that spot, and with only three games left in the regular season, both the Giants and Eagles know the importance of this game.  Both also are not 100% as players on both sides have fallen to injuries.  This game will be a test of Eagles coaching, discipline and heart.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 30-27 in Texas
  • Stewart Bradley goes out for the season with an ugly elbow dislocation
  • Derrick Burgess brought back in to help with depth
  • We talk about the horrific officiating in the game, again
  • The conversation turns to Michael Vick, and America's bias... or acceptance of him
  • Email from Craig in NY
  • Can't talk about this game without talking about DeSean Jackson's incredible game
  • Eagles go to play the Giants up in North Jersey
  • The EFC Fantasy Football enters the playoffs

A full week ago the Philadelphia Eagles finished their fourth game in 18 days and beat the Texans at Lincoln Financial Field 34-24. With the team rested, recovering and with renewed focus, they head down to Dallas, Texas to take on the Cowboys.  The resurgent Cowboys want to play the spoilers as their playoff hopes are gone, and with the rest of the NFC as tight as it is, the Eagles have no choice but to play every game as tough as they can. This game has become another must-win in this already tough season, and the Eagles need to bring their skills, brains and heart to bring the rest of the season to a close, and head to the playoffs.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Houston Texans 34-24 in Philadelphia
  • NFLPA One Team Tour came to Philly, and we met Ellis Hobbs and Winston Justice, plus were able to talk with the Executive Director DeMaurice Smith
  • We cover the next few games with the Dallas Cowboys up first
  • Voicemail from UK Steve Brown
  • The Eagles are fired up for this game against the Cowboys, based partly on revenge for the end of last season
  • Recap of the last week of EFC Fantasy Football’s regular season
  • We talk about the NFC teams and playoff scenarios
  • Voicemail from Aussie Steve

The Chicago Bears beat the Philadelphia Eagles at Soldier Field on a day where the Eagles Offense, Defense, Special Teams and coaching all come up short for the team.  Despite that, and the NFC loss, we don’t see this as a tragic loss on the season, and see plenty of opportunity for the Eagles to make the December playoff run.  Playoffs?  Yes, this team that, three months ago, we saw as a rebuilding and .500 team is now poised to make a run at not only the playoffs, but also winning the NFC East.  This could be a great December for the midnight green and silver, and we are not going to let this loss bring us down too much.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lost to the Chicago Bears as they did not play well on all sides of the ball
  • Coach Andy Reid gave the team a very angry lashing after the game… well deserved
  • The Houston Texans come to Philly on Thursday night, and we see a big win
  • Email from Barry in New Jersey about how the Bears Defense is one of the only built to cover the Eagles this year
  • The Eagles red zone issues are a concern, but we hope this is fixed quickly
  • We are looking forward to a great December of Eagles football
  • EFC Fantasy football weekly roundup

The Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants Sunday night for a battle for first place in the NFC East.  With wins coming both the Redskins and the Cowboys earlier in the day, the game became very big by the time 8:00pm rolled around.  Despite a worry by some that this game would be a let down after such a tremendous and historic win the previous week over the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, the Eagles overcame some mistakes and continued bad officiating to beat the Giants by ten points.  This places the Eagles atop the NFC East all alone and in the middle of the pack of the best teams now in the hunt for a playoff spot as November winds down.  Vick was not at his best, and there were key end zone drops by the ol’ reliables, Jason Avant and Desean Jackson.  The Eagles Defense played a great game, and although not recording a sack, had three interceptions and a fumble recovery that helped win the game.  Next, the Eagles travel to Chicago and take on the Bears in a very tough, and possibly critical NFC matchup.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Giants 27-17 at Lincoln Financial Field, moving to the top of the NFC East
  • What are we thankful for this Thanksgiving?
  • Jason Avant and Desean Jackson’s drops came close to beating us
  • Again we take serious issues with the officiating
  • Broadcaster Cris Collinsworth was all about disrespecting the Eagles on Sunday Night Football
  • Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb options moving forward
  • The Eagles go to Chicago and take on the Bears next
  • Who will be this week’s star player?

Our Philadelphia Eagles put on an historic display to an amazed football fanbase the world over on Monday Night Football, and defeat the Washington Redskins 59-28.  The Eagles showed poise, maturity, skill and discipline on every side of the ball for a critical NFC East game, and dominated from the first play of the game.  It was truly an exciting game, with twelve touchdowns scored in total, with the Eagles scoring six of their eight in the first half alone.  The Defense dominated as well, not allowing the Redskins to convert a third down the entire game, and despite Donovan McNabb throwing for two touchdowns, the Eagles D intercepted him three times.  But the true star of this game was Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.  Vick, in this game alone, completed his transformation into one of the most dangerous players in the NFL.  From this point forward, all other teams that face the Eagles will have to prepare unlike for any other game they played before. Overall it was an incredible game to watch, and ranks as one of the most impressive Eagles victories in franchise history.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles destroy the Redskins 59-28 in Washington on Monday Night Football
  • So much went right, on all sides of the ball
  • Multiple records were set in the game, Vick was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row, and the Football Hall of Fame requested Vick’s game jersey
  • Michael Vick’s transformation to the player he is now is nothing short of amazing
  • The Eagles Defense shut down many parts of the Redskins Offense, despite the four touchdowns given up
  • We talk about some of the team statistics, thanks to the work of Bleeding Green Nation
  • The Eagles next opponent is just as big, and is for sole first place in the NFC East, at home against the New York Giants
  • Some fantasy football talk

The Philadelphia Eagles overcome a horribly-officiated game and beat the Indianapolis Colts at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. More than Colts quarterback Peyton Manning playing poorly, more than Eagles quarterback Michael Vick playing well, was the topic of the referees and how quickly they are tossing that little yellow flag through the air.  We recognize that there is extra pressure from the NFL now to protect players during the game, and it has exposed itself as bad calls that could have easily changed the course of this particular game in more than one instance. Despite all of this, and more than a dozen Eagles penalties overall, the Eagles win, and it may be a huge momentum builder going into next week's Monday Night Football game against the Washington Redskins.

What we discussed:

  • The Eagles are now 5-3 after beating the refs Indianapolis Colts in Philadelphia
  • How many horrible calls did the refs make? Let us count the ways
  • Eagles go to Washington to take on Donovan McNabb and the Redskins on Monday Night Football, no pressure, Donovan
  • We want a huge game, a definitive win on national TV
  • We go back to talking about the refereeing after some emails from Dennis
  • Reminiscing about some notorious Eagles fan stories as we've experienced it
  • Some laughable EFC Fantasy Football results

We took a BYE week early, as a hard drive crash prevented us from recording after the Eagles – Titans game last week. But we are back with an extra week to nurse our wounds after the Eagles disintegrate in the fourth quarter of that game.  All is not lost as other teams in the NFC look to be on a downward spiral, plus we get some injured players back into the starting lineup. A very tough game is coming up this week after the BYE, as the hot Indianapolis Colts pay a visit to the City of Brotherly Love on Sunday. Also joining us this week for our annual BYE week tradition is Jason Brewer from the excellent Bleeding Green Nation.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Tennessee Titans as inexperience in players and coaching lead to an ugly 4th quarter
  • Ellis Hobbs appears to have been demoted, or he is injured, we are not sure. Regardless, Dmitri Patterson replaces him in the cornerback position.
  • Inexperience definitely played a factor in last week’s loss to the Titans
  • Jason Peters will be back in his starting slot, and should stay away from microphones
  • Michael Vick is also back from his injury and takes the starting quarterback role from Kevin Kolb
  • The Indianapolis Colts scare the hell out of us this week
  • We broach the obvious topic: Donovan McNabb and his current issues in Washington
  • Former Eagle Jon Runyan is now a member of the U.S. House of Representatives!

The Philadelphia Eagles pull together behind a stellar performance from backup (!?) quarterback Kevin Kolb and beat the Atlanta Falcons in Lincoln Financial Field, 31-17.  The day was warm, the sun was shining, and the Eagles had a 21-0 lead before the Falcons scored. Special Teams, Defense and Offensive Line all had a great day, and allowed Kolb to work his magic, while stopping the Falcons repeatedly. Unfortunately the day was not perfect, as we witnessed star receiver DeSean Jackson go out with a severe concussion after a terrifying hit, and ol’ reliable kicker David Akers miss three field goals.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Falcons in Philadelphia and travel next week to play the Tennessee Titans
  • WR Desean Jackson’s concussion and hit, plus we talk about other hard hits in the NFL this week
  • Kevin Kolb was phenomenal this week, completing 23 of 29 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns
  • The Defense stepped up, with King Dunlap making an remarkable turnaround from last week
  • Trent Cole was a monster, and Stewart Bradley looks like he’s improving as well
  • Tailgating this week was a lot of fun, with UK Steve visiting Philly on a sports tour that is becoming legendary, and Jason from Bleeding Green Nation hung with us as well.
  • We got to meet The Commissioner of Tailgating, Joe Cahn and talk with him about his tailgating adventures
  • EFC Fantasy Football updates wrap up the show along with an email from Dennis in Gettysburg and a couple of voicemails

The Philadelphia Eagles stay tied atop the NFC East with a win over the hapless San Francisco 49ers. Quarterback Kevin Kolb, playing for the injured Michael Vick, played with confidence behind an Offensive Line that sustained even more losses to injury. Speaking of injury, running back Lesean "Shady" McCoy started with a broken rib and contributed 138 total yards with a touchdown. Andy Reid had even more questionable coaching decisions that make us scratch our heads and the Eagles secondary fell asleep in the fourth quarter of the game, almost allowing the 49ers to build a comeback. Regardless of the negatives, the Eagles are now 3-2 on the season, and host the Atlanta Falcons this coming week in Philadelphia.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles win over the San Francisco 49ers 27-24
  • DT Brodrick Bunkley out for the season with elbow ligament damage, but there are now conflicting reports
  • LT Jason Peters injured his knee and may have an MRI on it
  • King Dunlap was horrible, and needs to find a way to stop the pass rushers
  • Kevin Kolb looked comfortable and more confident, scanning his receivers before unloading his passes
  • Shady McCoy is just an incredible talent
  • The Dallas Cowboys lost again, and the NFC East giggled
  • The Eagles have a lot of work to do on the O-line and D-lines, especially this week against the Falcons

In what amounted to a disaster of a game, the Philadelphia Eagles lose at home to the Washington Redskins. Donovan McNabb’s homecoming was not what anyone predicted, with more Eagles players going down with concussions and broken bones, more poor officiating, some laughable coaching and penalties all adding up to a poor Eagles showing in front of a worldwide audience. McNabb performed badly, but it was the Redskins running game that won the game. Eagles latest starting quarterback, Michael Vick, went down with a rib cartilage injury, and Kevin Kolb came in off the bench. In what was arguably the game-losing moments, Head Coach Andy Reid flubbed clock management and play calling before the half, which resulted in a Field Goal instead of a potential touchdown. Reid’s ultimate explanation for the decisions was, “I goofed.”

What we discussed:

  • We start off with addressing Andy Reid’s debacle of clock management… “I goofed”
  • We take a look at the next couple of weeks in the schedule
  • The injuries continue to add up for the team
  • Our expectations of the team as this being a rebuilding year are now back in line
  • We talk about the tailgate this week with Todd flying in and also listener Brian from Colorado came and hung out with us
  • Wrap up with some EFC Fantasy Football talk

Our Philadelphia Eagles move to the top of the NFC East after defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars down in the Sunshine State, with our new Quarterback Michael Vick at the helm.  Vick put on an amazing show of confidence, skill and veteran leadership in the game, and thus squashing any parts of a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-3
  • Vick is the absolute talk of the NFL
  • Asante Samuel just so much skill at anticipating routes
  • Trevor Laws and the rest of the Defense really shined this week
  • Vick has been taking a lot of hits, and needs to play smarter in order to preserve himself this season
  • Will the Eagles fans cheer or jeer Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb this Sunday?
  • We talk about how the Eagles Defense may handle getting their shot at McNabb

Just a few hours before we were scheduled to sit down and record this episode, the Philadelphia Eagles fan's world erupted with the news that Head Coach Andy Reid would make Michael Vick the new starting quarterback, leaving franchise quarterback Kevin Kolb to ride it out on the bench. Not 24 hours after Reid said that Kolb was the starter after recovering from his Week 1 concussion, the dramatic announcement took place. We discuss this issue from as many angles as we can see, sometimes rationally, often not, as we try to make sense of the decision. We break down Reid's press conference, where the concerns are moving forward, and the excitement of this team.

We also talk throughout the show about the win against the Detroit Lions this weekend, the upcoming Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins games, wide receiver Hank Baskett getting cut to make room on the roster, and of course the Dallas Cowboys starting off their season 0-2.

The 2010 Philadelphia Eagles season started a new era with much anticipation, excitement and cautious optimism.  The first game against the NFC favorites Green Bay Packers ended with confusion, sadness, and a lot of questions.  So many things went wrong in this game, with season ending injuries to two Pro-Bowlers, two of our other stars leaving with concussions, questionable play by our Special Teams and Offensive Line, our backup quarterback out-rushing most of the league and once again losing confidence in the head coach’s decisions.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose 27-20 to the Green Bay Packers at home
  • Quarterback Kevin Kolb was awful, but his Offensive Line didn’t protect him
  • We lost fullback Leonard Weaver because of Chuck
  • Email from Corey in Maryland
  • What was Andy Reid’s role in this loss?
  • Email from Barry in North Jersey
  • Email from Steve in the UK
  • Email from Aussie Mike
  • Email from Dennis in Gettysburg
  • Looking ahead and we quickly run down the EaglesFanCast Fantasy Football results

Three down, one last one to go.  The Jets come to Philly for the last game, and we already know that any starters will get very little play time, if at all.  So that leaves our new starting quarterback, Kevin Kolb, with no scores in the preseason.  That sounds scary, but we agree that there is no need for panic.

There have been ups and downs so far, with a great hit by Asante Samuel, Vick’s usage with the first teams seems to be doing nothing but ruining their timing, DE Ricky Sapp placed on IR and questions about a few others’ performance.  Most of what you have read and heard about this team so far is not very enthusiastic.  Is it a young team still trying to find the gel, or smoke screens by the coaching staff?  We will find out in a few more weeks when we meet the Green Bay Packers in the opener.

In the meantime, there is one more preseason game against the Jets.  Then the final cuts happen.  A lot of players will be fighting for a job, so it should be an interesting game to watch.  Speaking of the Jets, Eric has been watching Hard Knocks and has really enjoyed it.

We also gave out a code in the chat room during the recording for our new EaglesFanCast iPhone App, and have one more to give.  Listen for the EFC trivia question in the show, and be the first to email the correct answer to us, and you can win a code to download the App for free!  Here are the rules: you have to be a resident of the U.S., and obviously you have to have an iPhone to download it.

Two Preseason weeks down with a win and a loss.  We have seen our starters play essentially three quarters of football so far, the coaches holding back their tricks and some shuffling in the lineup.  Our first team Offense has yet to score a touchdown, and we have seen plenty of rust as we do every year by this time.  The third game is only a few days away, and we will see more of the starters for most of the game.  Shortly after, the team gets cut to 75 players.

The team is definitely faster, the Offense is having struggles as we would expect from a revamped roster and new leader, the Defense looks better than anticipated and now we have two rookies in starting positions (Brandon Graham and Nate Allen).  Joselio Hansen is probably on the bubble, and we somehow get back on the topic of Donovan McNabb again.

We read off an email from Dennis in Gettysburg, then address the rumors brewing about the Vikings looking for a trade with a few teams, including the Eagles.  The last thing we talked about was the potential for an 18-game season next year, and some of the ramifications that comes with that.

One last thing!  We now have an App in the iTunes App Store for everyone with an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad! This direct link is here – http://bit.ly/EFC-App

EaglesFanCast 86 - Preseason Football Starts

Training Camp for the Philadelphia Eagles is well under way in Lehigh, PA, and our Birds have their first preseason football game this Friday.  The Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Philadelphia where we all get to see the new team on the field for the first time.  There is much excitement building for this season, and reports are racing out of camp about the players, position changes, a flurry of injuries, and status updates. 

This week we mainly talk about this building excitement and a few of the things that we have seen and hope to see moving forward.  We also talk about the toughness of the Eagles camp and how we like what we see building in Kolb's instincts so far.

Preseason and always:

Well we are finally back! After taking a few months off due to all kinds of reasons, we finally make our 2010 season return. Todd and Chuck chat with one of our newest site writers, Steve Brown all the way from the UK!  

We talked about the start of Training Camp, the excitement of a new season, and touched on players such as Kevin Kolb, Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson, Stewart Bradley, Brent Celek and the newest Eagle, Nate Allen, among others. 

With the departure of Donovan McNabb, leaving Kolb and Vick, Chuck raised the question about the Wildcat and it's presence (or lack of) in this year's Offense.

Still where we want to be:

Part 1 of 2

Tommy Lawlor of Scouts Notebook, Eagles Blitz and PhiladelphiaEagles.com joins us for our annual Post-Draft show. With Tommy’s extensive insight, we break down how the Eagles Draft went down, how the new players fit in the system, the work the organization still has to do, and much more.

What we discussed:

  • The NFL 2010 Draft had great ratings and that probably means the new format will stay
  • DE Brandon Graham from Michigan was the Eagles first pick, and they aggressively went for him
  • S Nate Allen from USF was the second pick
  • LB Keenan Clayton from Oklahoma (4th round) might have real potential on this team
  • DE Ricky Sapp from Clemson was chosen in the 5th round and some are seeing him as a steal
  • Eagles picked a number of smart players in this Draft
  • RB Charles Scott from LSU is someone Tommy is happy about the Eagles picking
  • QB Mike Kafka from Northwestern was the Eagles 6th pick overall. He didn’t play a whole lot in college, but is talented.
  • S Kurt Coleman from Ohio State is a player that is starter material in a few short years
  • CB Trevard Lindley from Kentucky

he Philadelphia Eagles are just over a week away from the 2010 NFL Draft.  This week’s show is all about that, of course.  We welcome Tommy Lawlor back to EFC for the third year of this tradition.  Eagles fans know Tommy from Eagles Blitz, his Draft expertise for years on Scouts Notebook, and of course from his work on PhiladelphiaEagles.com.  Tommy always brings a huge amount of player and team insight to us this time of year, and he didn’t disappoint in the least.

We open the show with Tommy offering his opinions on the McNabb trade, then we hit the ground running. This year’s Draft is a very deep one, and we expect the Eagles to use their picks to move.  One concern, though, is that the Eagles have enough holes on their roster for them to legitimately use all of the picks they have.  What about moving around? It is always a possibility, but Tommy does not think that the Eagles try to deal Michael Vick, because he does not believe that any teams would be willing to give much for him in this Draft.

Without question, the Eagles needs this year are: cornerback, safety and linebacker.  We are pretty much all in agreement that they take a cornerback as their first pick.

Well every Philadelphia Eagles fan worth their salt knows what we talked about this week.  It was the epic trade of our Quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Division rival, Washington Redskins.  We discuss what the move means to the team, to the coaches, to McNabb, to our new starting Quarterback Kevin Kolb, and hit on many other topics relating to the team, the Spring Cleaning that has been going on, and the upcoming NFL Draft.

What we discussed:

  • Donovan McNabb ends his career with the Philadelphia Eagles and starts his new chapter as a Washington Redskin
  • Do the Redskins really get that much better? Yes, but how much overall?
  • Eagles have 11 picks in this year’s NFL Draft
  • This team is a very young team now
  • If Kevin Kolb excels, there are a ton of Offensive weapons at his disposal
  • Defense is a big concern now
  • Why such a huge Spring Cleaning this year?

Our Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2010 Free Agency season not with a bang, a crackle or even a little hiss.  As other teams scramble and write out big checks for star players, the Eagles organization looks within.  They sign Jason Avant and Leonard Weaver, trade away Reggie Brown… and do not pick up anyone new.  So far.  This week we talk about how things are, how they appear, and some philosophical topics as they relate to the Eagles.

What we discussed this show:

  • Eagles cut favorite player Brian Westbrook a few weeks ago
  • Signings – receiver Jason Avant and fullback Leonard Weaver
  • Restructuring Stacy Andrews’ contract
  • Trade receiver Reggie Brown to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a reported sixth round draft pick
  • Todd rants about Donovan McNabb
  • Have the Eagles become a team that players may not want to come to, because of the Eagles Management team?
  • We try to sort out some of what is going on for Free Agency so far

Our first real show of the offseason, and we go after the biggest thing right now, the Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback situation. With Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb on the team, it is pretty unanimous across fans and media alike that something has to give. All three of these players, it is believed, can start and lead a team in the NFL. The media has been relentless since the Eagles playoff loss to the Cowboys in their attempt to stir the pot and create rumor and speculation regarding Donovan McNabb returning for the 2010 NFL season. The general Eagles fan feeling is one of anger and predominantly that McNabb has had his chance to win a Super Bowl, and now it is time to move on. In this show, we try to sort through all of this, bring a few emails and voicemails from our listeners, and give our opinions on where the team should go.

What we discussed:

  • Rumors and speculation are rampant and the media has been desperately trying to fuel a controversy one way or another since the end of the season
  • Why is the fans’ anger toward McNabb worse this year?
  • Our friend Tommy Lawlor from Scouts Notebook wrote an amazingly in-depth look at McNabb’s career in Philly, including the ups and downs, the whole Quarterback situation, and is a must read for all Eagles fans.
  • We share our viewpoints on what we think the Eagles should do with our three Quarterbacks this before the 2010 season starts
  • Emails from Aussie Steve and Dennis, voicemails from DQ in New York and Richard in Louisiana

Our Philadelphia Eagles end their playoff run quickly, and fail in Dallas two weeks in a row, losing to the Dallas Cowboys 34-14, bringing a frustrating and roller coaster season to an end.  We talk about the aspects of the game, bring up some of the disappointment, anger, frustration, and questions that Eagles fans have after yet another playoff run comes up short.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to Dallas Cowboys in the Wildcard round of the playoffs, 34-14
  • The lack of confidence in our QB contributed to the loss
  • Another major contributor to the loss was Andy Reid’s inability to adjust
  • Rumors abound that Brian Westbrook may retire from football altogether, because of his knee issues
  • Email from Evan
  • We address the Quarterback situation a bit
  • We also address what some Eagles fans are saying about why we lost: Brian Dawkins’ absense from the team
  • We close out the show with voicemails from some fans

Note:

  • Our next show we will dedicate to the major topic that Eagles fans are talking about: the Quarterback situation. So send in your (short) emails and voicemails for that topic. Thanks!

The Philadelphia Eagles finish their regular season with an embarrassing loss to the Dallas Cowboys, 24-0. At stake for the Eagles was the number two seed, a potential home game, the East Division title, and pride. The loss in this case was a huge disappointment due to what appeared as a total breakdown on all sides of the ball and in coaching. It shook fans, as this is not what we expected, nor wanted, from a dominant team entering the playoffs, and now instilled quite a bit of doubt approaching our first playoff game, against the Dallas Cowboys.  Jason from Bleeding Green Nation joins Todd and Chuck this week for all the fun talk.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles fall apart and lose to the Dallas Cowboys, 24-0
  • Donovan McNabb’s play was awful this week
  • We break down the many ways we lost
  • What happened to coaching?
  • We play against the Cowboys this week and hope all aspects of the team are prepared
  • Emails from Dennis in Gettysburg, and Reverand Jim in Australia
  • Todd is all about the conspiracy theories this week
  • Eagles GM Tom Heckert interviewing (again) with other teams

Where are we?
