David Akers was successful on 82 percent of his field-goal attempts and 98.7 of the extra points he attempted in his 188 games as an Eagle.. K. . David Akers (1999-2010). . team. 54

He’s the most beloved kicker in Eagles’ history. Not only was David Akers a phenomenal kicker, as his All-pro nod and five Pro Bowl selections would indicate, but he also wasn’t afraid to mix it up with the “big boys”.

As evidenced in the above photo, Akers would stick his head in on tackles, trick plays, and even the occasional kerfuffle on the sidelines. He’s a perfect choice. A career 82.4 field-goal percentage and a 94 percent accuracy rate on extra points is a nice argument as well.

The Eagles may not be known for their punters, and that’s probably a good thing). Still, Donnie Jones was a very good one.

His nickname alone should get him on the list, but a career average of 45.4 yards may be the better reason.

54. You aren’t botching anything if the ‘Magic Man’ is your long snapper.. LS. . Jon Dorenbos (2006-2016). . team

Come on, who is going here over the ‘Magic Man’. There isn’t an Eagles fan on the planet who doesn’t love Jon Dorenbos or would argue with his inclusion on this list. Mike Bartrum did catch four touchdowns as a reserve tight end along with his excellent long snapping, but Dorenbos appeared on America’s Got Talent.

In conclusion: There were some tough omissions during this long, thought-out process to put this list together. In the 100 years of NFL football, no fanbase has been more passionate than that of the Philadelphia Eagles. Their 100th anniversary is around the corner. We’ll see if any changes will need to be made at that point.
