5 Most Overrated Philadelphia Eagles of All Time

It was painful to watch Eli Manning engineer another comeback and guide the New York Giants to a 20-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers for the right to play in Super Bowl XLVI.

It was even more painful to think about the Philadelphia Eagles' zero Super Bowl trophies.

But, that's the way it is Philadelphia. The team continuously finds a way to squander opportunities while teams like the Giants capitalize on every break that goes their way. Part of the reason is due to something that is unexplainable. It's as if the football gods smile down on certain teams while stomping out the dreams of other franchises.

The other part comes down to coaches and players who are actually good and not wildly overrated. If the Lombardi Trophy went to the team with the latter, the Eagles would make the Green Bay Packers' and Pittsburgh Steelers' trophy case look empty.

Until someone steps up and delivers, the Eagles will be left with dust and painful memories filling an otherwise empty shelf.
