At this point, you have to know two things about Brandon Graham if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan. One, he’s a shoo-in for induction into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame. That goes without saying. He does have one issue, however, and it’s this. A spot in Canton is another story.
Brandon Graham, for whatever reason, has never been elected to the Pro Bowl roster, and if you check us out here at ITI often, you’re very aware that our staff has a few issues with that. Okay, let’s just say that he didn’t deserve any Pro Bowl nods in the first nine years of his career (and we all know that’s debatable). What in the you know what happened in 2019?
Graham’s numbers in the tenth season of his career, all of which have been in an Eagles jersey, were better than Fletcher Cox‘s. We’re talking about 50 tackles and 8.5 sacks in 16 games for B.G. as opposed to 40 tackles and 3.5 sacks for “91” (and Cox was the one who went to the Pro Bowl).
At this point, you have to realize that Graham is one of those guys that’s never going to get the credit he deserves. 2020 might, very well, be his final ride in an Eagles jersey. Expect a wild ride and for him to go out in a blaze of glory. If you’re looking for a bold prediction, here it is. We’re looking for close to ten sacks and countless other pressures. We’ll never forget B.G. as an Eagles fan, and when we look back on “55” and his time in an Eagles jersey, the 2020 season will be a big reason why that’s the case.
