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?
  • EFC Fantasy Football weekly roundup

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
