The Philadelphia Eagles home opener against the New York Giants did not turn out the way most expected with the Eagles losing 16-29.  Many things broke down this week, including some huge coaching decisions that were questionable at best.  The run Defense continued to suffer, and player discipline also was suspect with costly dropped passes and game-changing penalties.  Quarterback Mike Vick injured his hand, originally thought to have been broken, which brought in backup Mike Kafka.  Kafka threw two costly interceptions, which sealed any kind of comeback.  It definitely ruined a fun day, with a tailgate full of pulled pork sandwiches and sausage peppers and onions made by my lovely wife!

Now the Eagles are in a situation where they have to win the next game against the 49ers, another NFC team, to both stop the slide, and regroup.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the New York Giants in the home opener and fall to 1-2, last place in the NFC East
  • Coach Andy Reid has to own the brunt of the blame for this loss
  • Mike Vick struggled badly before being injured
  • Defense still being shuffled around, trying to fix the problems
  • This week’s game against the 49ers is already a must-win game
  • A question posed: “If we could trade for a player in the league, who would it be?”
  • Thanks again to GMNortheast for loaning Eric and Chuck the Camaros

A wild game down south as the Philadelphia Eagles put up 31 points only to lose to the Atlanta Falcons.  Dropped passes, turnovers, Defensive holes, coaching mistakes and Quarterback Michael Vick leaving the game because of a concussion were the many reasons this game was lost. Despite these, the Eagles put up numbers that would have beaten most teams in the NFL, and there were quite a few bright spots during the game. Some fans are angry and others look at it in the context of it being early in the season.  All told, for the most part the fans are on board with this team as continuing to be a force on both sides of the ball.

This week the Eagles host the New York Giants for the home opener in Philadelphia. With the Giants wanting revenge for the embarrassing loss they marked the last time these teams met, trash talking among some players and the media has started. It is looking like it’s going to be a great game.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles lose to the Atlanta Falcons in a wild game
  • Head Coach Andy Reid’s decisions and Offensive turnovers cost this game
  • Jason Peters and Trent Cole both had amazing games
  • Michael Vick and his turnovers
  • The Giants are all hyped up for revenge and are talking trash
  • Running back Shady McCoy is just so good, and it was amazing to watch him
  • We talk briefly about our loaner cars from GMNortheast.
  • The EFC FFL update

The Philadelphia Eagles start off the 2011 NFL season with a big win over the St. Louis Rams.  After a rough start on both Offense and Defense, the team turns things around and outscore the Rams 31-6 after a remarkable Rams touchdown very early in the game. The Eagles players and coaches made the necessary adjustments and turned it around showing a tenacity and maturity that we hoped we would see from this team.  Next the Eagles go into Atlanta for a much-hyped game against our star quarterback’s former team, after they come off a bad loss.  It will be another big test early in the season leading up to the home opener the following week.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the St. Louis Rams 31-13 on the road to start the season off strong
  • The Offensive line and linebackers definitely were the weak links as was suspected
  • The team adjusted well early, both coaches and players
  • It’s a learning process for the team, and the hope is they excel quickly
  • Eric talks briefly about the Chevrolet Camaro convertible that GM Northeast was awesome enough to let him drive for the week. We encourage you to visit their site at www.drivingthenortheast.com and follow them on twitter,@GMNortheast
  • We have the EFC FFL Week 1 update

The Philadelphia Eagles finish the preseason with a record of 3-1, and prepare to start the much-hyped and excitement-filled 2011 season.  The fourth game ended and immediately the fans and media started talking regular season and the high expectations.  We are excited and talk about our expectations for the start of the season, some of the other NFL teams, and did I mention the NFL 2011 season starts in just a couple days?  E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!

What we discussed:

  • The excitement about the Eagles for the start of this season is remarkably high
  • The St. Louis Rams will be a solid test to start the season
  • Is the Desean Jackson situation going to affect the Offense
  • Backup Quarterback Vince Young’s hamstring injury is being reported as minor and isn’t a concern
  • Our second EFC Fantasy Football League kicks off tomorrow night with the Draft
  • Next week Eric will get his Chevrolet Camaro convertible loaner for a week and we’ll have to bribe him to be on the show instead of driving around.  We encourage you to visit their site at www.drivingthenortheast.com and follow them on twitter,@GMNortheast
