This week I sat in with the boys from the Eagles Fancast show for a round table discussion about the first quarter of the season. We had a good time lamenting the Birds start and giving our thoughts about what's ahead. Plus, at one point the show devolves into a nice bash-fest of the Cowboys and their "fans!" Obviously that's always a blast...

Here are the show notes.
* Jason from Bleeding Green Nation blog and podcast is with us tonight
* No Eagles news, so we talk about the Bills / Cowboys game last night
* Round-table question time:
- Based on the offseason and preseason, what Eagles player has been your biggest surprise/disappointment so far?
- Questions and rumors surround Coach Andy Reid's effectiveness for this season. If his sons were not involved in legal issues, and the Eagles were still 1-3, do you think Reid's performance would still be a huge issue?
- Are you concerned about the number of injuries that the Eagles have suffered so far, or is it just a simple part of the game that happens every year?
- As McNabb's scrambling abilities diminish, does a pocket passer still fit into this offensive scheme, or do you feel the scheme has changed accordingly?
- How would you evaluate the entire coaching staff of the Eagles through the first four games?
- With Dallas dominant and putting up impressive numbers, how crucial are the next few weeks for the Eagles before meeting them for the first time in November?
- The Eagles have been criticized for not pursuing a big-name receiver to compliment McNabb and Westbrook, despite being so far under the salary cap... what are your thoughts?
- We discuss expectations for the Eagles - Jets game at the Meadowlands this coming Sunday.
