    Default Philadelphia Eagles Mount Rushmore

    I have to say that it was a little weird doing the Eagles. They have a number of great players but the lack of true transcendant stars that have stayed with their organization is a little weird. Anyways....

    - Chuck Bednarik - The most obvious one for me as he is probably their best player and one of their most famous of all time. A two way player more known for his ferocity on defense. The man has an award named after him and deserves first mention here.

    - Brian Dawkins - There aren't many Eagles who were better players than Dawkins and none of them were tried and true lifelong Eagles like he was. I don't know that anyone ever said it , but this guy is sort of "Mr. Eagle" for me. Just an awesome player for over a decade and one of the main reasons to watch an Eagles game.

    - Reggie White - I hesitated putting him on the list because he split his prime between the Eagles and the Packers but god dammit he deserves to make one of their Mt. Rushmores and quite frankly ... there is just more room on Philly's. It also doesn't hurt that he was an incredible player for Philly during his time there and despite only playing 7 or 8 seasons with them ... still remains their all time sack leader.

    - Donovan McNabb - The hardest one for me to include , but when it's all said and done McNabb still remains the best quarterback in Eagles history and the guy who led them to 4 straight NFC championship games. From booed out of the building to a Philly favorite ... he just notches out a few other candidates for me.

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXX

    Others I considered: Steve Van Buren , Randall Cunningham , Andy Reid and Harold Carmichael.

    No it shouldn't , the Eagles get their own forum.

    I'll move it now.
