The Philadelphia Eagles have had a storied but tumultuous 78 years in pro football. In that time, the Eagles have had some of the best players in league history. From Steve Van Buren to the last of the 60 minutes men, Chuck Bednarik to Reggie White to Brian Dawkins to the players of today. They have had 16 former players inducted into the Hall of Fame and have several other players waiting to be enshrined including Randall Cunningham and Brian Dawkins.
But who are they greatest Eagles of them all? The Eagles have made the playoffs in seven different decades now and comparing the greats from all these different eras is pretty difficult. You have to consider everything these players accomplished and for some one the list, are still accomplishing. You have to look at more than just stats. You also have to consider just what they did for the Eagles. Richard Dent had a great career and is not only a Superbowl MVP but also a Hall of Famer. But he only played for the Eagles one season.
I also think you have to consider some of the guys today for what they have already done. Some of our current players have already done enough to be in the top 50 already.
Alright, let's get this countdown started. Here is my attempt at taking 78 years worth of players and picking just the 50 best since 1933.
