Weekdays 5:30AM-10AM

This is getting way harder than  thought.  I have done with best Eagles Player by Jersey Number from 1-20.  Some were obvious, some were like huh? That dude wasn’t even good. Well, some numbers aren’t worn by some of the greats so we have to settle.

Let’s take a look at #’s 21-30.

  • #21 - Eric Allen

    EA might be the greatest corner the Eagles have ever had.  Troy Vincent is up there but he was #23… Bobby Taylor was a great corner for the Birds and he was #21 as well.  I have to stick with Eric Allen as the best #21.

  • #22 - Duce Staley

    This is where my age (36) will probably be a factor in this decision.  I never saw Timmy Brown play but I only heard great things.  Asante Samuel was also another great Eagle who wore 22 but Duce Staley carried the team for a while when the team wasn’t that great.  He was a workhorse back until we drafted Brian Westbrook.  DUUUUUUUCEEEEE!!!

  • #23 - Troy Vincent

    This is my(Donnie) favorite Eagle of all time.  He along with Eric Allen are the best 2 corners in Eagles history in my opinion.  He was born and raised in the town right next to me and I was so happy when the Birds drafted him in the mid 90’s.

  • #24 - Sheldon Brown

    After Bobby Taylor and Troy Vincent departed the Eagles, 2 new faces stepped in to fill those big shoes.  One was Lito Sheppard and the other was Sheldon Brown.  They were both fantastic and we all remember Sheldon’s huge hit on Reggie Bush back in 2007.

  • #25 - Tommy McDonald

    A member of the Hall of Fame, the Eagles Hall of Fame, and he was a part of the 1960 Championship team.  This is where my age didn’t deter me from selecting the correct pick.  I loved LeSean McCoy while he was on the team.  He is the all-time leading rusher in Eagles history but I was told Tommy McDonald is an all-timer in general.

  • #26 - Lito Sheppard

    This guy had to replace Troy Vincent.  Very tough to do but he did a fantastic job.  He and Sheldon Brown manned the cornerback positions for a number of years and did a phenomenal job!

  • #27 - Malcolm Jenkins

    One of the many reasons the Eagles won the Super Bowl in 2017.  This dude was the heart and soul of the defense that year and his play on the field was spectacular.

  • #28 - Bill Bradley

    I don’t know much about Bill Bradley but I do know that he played safety and also was the punter.  That is amazing!  He made 3 Pro Bowls at safety for the Eagles as well. I wanted to pick Correll Buckhalter just because I was such a fan but he’s just not there.

    New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Archie Manning eludes Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive tackles, picking up a first down during a game at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. Manning led the Saints to a fourth quarter touchdown, upsetting Philadelphia 14-10. Defensive end Bill Bradley (28) approaches the scrambling quarterback.

     

  • #29 - Harold Jackson

    A 5 time Pro Bowl receiver with 2 of them coming with the Birds.  He is by far the best #29 they have ever had.

     

  • #30 - Brian Mitchell

    He was one of the best kick returners we have ever had.  He is probably better known as a member of Washington but he stood out here for years.  Other choices were Charlie Garner or Corey Clement.  Had to go with B Mitch. Brian Mitchell
