The Philadelphia Eagles lose their second game of the season, and slip to 1-2, with the unfortunate prospect of going to Denver to face the powerful Broncos this coming weekend.  The Kansas City Chiefs, helmed by new head coach Andy Reid, handed the Eagles yet another home loss.  Now the Eagles have not won a home game in over a year.  Eagles fans, nonetheless, welcomed Andy Reid back with much applause and cheers, properly thanking him for many years of successful Eagles teams and many years of hopeful seasons.

Also receiving a standing ovation and cheers was former quarterback Donovan McNabb, who the Eagles organization retired his number, 5, at a halftime ceremony.  Fan favorite (who also had HIS number 20 retired last year), Brian Dawkins was the emcee... and pretty much received as much in the way of cheering from the fans as did McNabb.  It was a memorable moment, a deserving moment as arguably the best quarterback in franchise history, yet marred by an Eagles team that did everything it could to hand the victory to Reid and the Chiefs.

This week the Eagles head a mile high, and battle a hot Peyton Manning.  Hopefully new head coach Chip Kelly will coach a way to score more or find a way to neutralize Manning.

The Philadelphia Eagles log their first loss of the season, at home, falling to the San Diego Chargers 33-30.  The Offense was again exciting, if not somewhat muted, in the game, but our Defense showed what we feared in the preseason.  The secondary was ineffective, it seemed several receivers were open on every play, and there was almost no Eagles blitz to be seen.  But we knew the D was going to struggle.  The first week was an illusion as they took on a hobbled RGIII.  Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had plenty of time to find his targets all day, and there were enough mistakes that allowed them to simply score too many points.  A bright spot is the Defense recovered two more fumbles, and Michael Vick and the rest of the Offense didn’t turn the ball over at all.

Vick had a career day, finding his receivers quickly and effectively, and keeping the Chargers Defense on their heels, allowing the Eagles to move the ball down the field.

Moving into this week, the Kansas City Chiefs come knocking on the door of the Linc, with the big man himself, Andy Reid leading the way.  No coach knows the Eagles better than Reid, but his biggest disadvantage is his replacement, Chip Kelly.  Hopefully Reid will typically out-think himself, and make enough bad play calls and poor clock management to keep his Offense (and our Defense) off the field.  This is a big game despite that, as it would feel much better going into Denver the following week 2-1 instead of 1-2.

At halftime of tomorrow’s game, former quarterback Donovan McNabb will once again walk onto the turf, this time to have his number retired.  Brian Dawkins will emcee the event, and it is sure to be an emotional day for Eagles fans.  McNabb was one of the best players in franchise history, as well as one of the best to helm the Offense.  He was exciting, talented, had the players’ trust, and brought much in the way of confidence and that chance of a victory to every game.  His play, along with other talented players and coaches, brought the Eagles to a Super Bowl for the first time in a long time.  Although the Eagles came up just short, it was a great ride, and one we should never forget.

EAGLES!!  Excitement is back in Philadelphia sports!  Our own Philadelphia Eagles, under new Head Coach Chip Kelly win the opening game of the 2013 NFL season.  But the news isn’t that the Eagles won, but how, and how FAST.  Speculations on how the Eagles would materialize this season under former Oregon Coach Chip have circulated since he accepted the Head Coaching job in Philly.  A few days ago, on Monday Night Football, against NFC East rival Washington Redskins, we saw the speed and energy that Chip brings to our beloved football team.  Our Offense was fast, efficient and thrilling in the first half of the game, moving the ball down the field quickly, and our Defense stunned the Redskins with takeaways, knockdowns, sacks, and pressure.

There were definitely things to be improved upon, and the game did not squelch some of the doubts of the team for this season, but the Philadelphia Eagles made the entire league sit up and take notice.  Chip Kelly has changed this team dramatically, and the next few weeks will show us how much.  The Eagles have the San Diego Chargers coming to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, and I expect the fans to be out of their minds.

Excitement and anticipation is once again alive in Philly, and we could not be happier fans.

This show also features a mix of past Eagles songs created by DaMaineMan Nidice and Produced by Frank Petka.  It’s a great mix, and we very much appreciate them letting us include it in the show.

WE want to hear from you!
