The City of Brotherly Love loves its football and, of course, the Eagles. Now, even after 83 years without a single Super Bowl victory, the team has had its share of great, talented players over the years.
Randall Cunningham and Donovan McNabb
These two all-time great quarterbacks are the best ever to orchestrate the offense of the Eagles. Both were dominant both on the field and on the stats sheet. They even competed in multiple Pro Bowls. Cunningham though gains the upper hand because of his ten years of service to the team, while McNabb experienced much maligned career.
Arguably the best safety of his generation, no one exemplifies the spirit of Philadelphia better than Weapon X. Serving as the heart and soul of the team, he is a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team and the 20/20 club (over 20 sacks and 20 interceptions.)
The last great two-way player in the sport, his talent was compounded by his drive and competitive spirit. As a linebacker, he earned the reputation of being one of the hardest hitters in the history of football. What is even more amazing is that he also starred at center of the Eagles’ offensive team.
The explosive, quarterback-terrorizing Minister of Defense does not only lay claim to the title of Best Philadelphia Eagle ever, he is also considered as the greatest defensive player in league history.
