Congratulations to Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson on being named All-Pros by The Associated Press. Kelce was a first-team selection, his fourth, and Johnson was a second-team selection, his second overall (he was selected to the first team in 2017).
Jason Kelce has been one of the best centers in football for the last 4-5 years. He has been the stabilizing force on the Eagles offensive line since he took over as the starter in 2011. Kelce is one of the biggest reasons Jalen Hurts has progressed this year by providing guidance and leadership throughout the season. He has always led by example and has become one of the most popular Philadelphia Eagles in recent memory. Along with his All-Pro selection, Kelce is heading to his fifth Pro Bowl.
Lane Johnson was not named to the Pro Bowl but has been named a second-team All-Pro. At least the AP got it right. Few players can hold down the right tackle position like Lane Johnson. He allowed ZERO sacks this season while in pass protection and allowed only one QB hit. Needless to say, if you are lined up against Johnson, you aren’t going to touch the quarterback. Not only is he a force on the field, but he is also an even bigger force off the field. He has been an inspiration to many people dealing with mental health issues. Earlier this season, he came out and acknowledged and spoke about the mental health problems he was dealing with.
Fly Eagles Fly!!!
