Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson earned some shine recently.
As sports fans, we disagree and go back and forth sometimes. Hey, if you can’t get Philadelphia Eagles fans to disagree on simple things, how can we expect uniform opinions about all 32 NFL franchises? To be frank, as much as the Eagles fan base is widely recognized as one of the most intelligent in all of the professional sports, a debate among friends who share an affinity for the guys in green might make one scratch their head and wonder if their friend has had too much to drink.
We go back and forth on whether or not Carson Wentz is MVP-worthy, and we all butt heads on whether or not Derek Barnett is worthy of an extension. Here’s something we all can agree on though. Philly’s offensive line is among the best in football, but they don’t earn that title without Lane Johnson.

With no on-field practices to talk about, we’ve all gotten restless. The fans are clamoring for NFL football, and so is the media. From a reporter’s standpoint, we’re all looking for new info and ways to spin it to keep things fresh. Well, recently those “Worldwide Leaders in Sports” came up with a nice idea.
They began creating these “NFL ultimate teams” featuring the best of the best from some of college football’s recent conferences. The natural reaction is to click on the story and see if any of the players on your favorite team made the cut. You’ll be happy to know if you love the “Birds”, that Lane Johnson made the All Big-12 squad as an offensive tackle.
Give ESPN staff writer Mike Triplett the credit for this one. If you’re a Big-12 fan, you may not like the fact that their roster is ranked fifth among the Power Five conferences (not even Patrick Mahomes could save them), but again, as an Eagles fan, it’s nice to see Lane Johnson’s name on this list.
