In terms of All-Time Great Philadelphia Eagles, we can all run down the list of who we like at each position. Donovan McNabb, Brian Dawkins, Reggie White, Chuck Bednarik. The Eagles have 25 Hall Of Famers, so if you just put them all on a team it would make up almost half a All-Time Roster. Those names are easy to come up with. But what about guys who don’t get that level of love? Guys who maybe got forgotten or overlooked in their time here. Guys like Jeremy Maclin, Andy Harmon, and Chad Lewis. The players where if someone brings them up, we will all go, “Oh yea, that guy was great.”
Some just got overshadowed because they played next to guys like Reggie White or Brian Dawkins. Others may have played positions that just don’t get enough love to begin with. And some are just guys who just did their job, but never got the love. But all of them are guys we tend to overlook. So I figured it is time to give those guys some love for once.
I did my best to build out a roster on both offense, defense, and special teams of these guys who deserve more love. What QB did we not appreciate enough? Which WR deserves more love? What CB do Eagles fans overlook? I picked who I think are the most underappreciated at every position.
You’ll notice they are all from the 90s and 2000s because that is what I know. Bill Bradley may be a great CB we underrate, but his career began and ended way before I was born. So I apologize for leaving him and other guys from that era, or earlier eras, off the list. And obviously, some of them are actually great players. Underrated is a vague term, but in one way or the other, all of these are underappreciated.
