On behalf of the Philadelphia Eagles, we demand a recount!
This might be a slight exaggeration, but it seems like we’ve been talking about the NFL’s Pro Bowl roster for two months, especially as it relates to which Philadelphia Eagles are worthy. Okay, remove the word ‘slightly’ because it doesn’t apply here. At a minimum, we’ve, most definitely, been discussing the Pro Bowl for at least eight weeks, right about the time we all had about two months to see everyone play.
Sometimes, it’s been a three-minute conversation before we moved on to something more pressing. At other times, we found ourselves debating friends or coworkers about who’d be left off of the roster once it was set. Whatever the case, once the voting began, we joined Darius Slay as he called Birds fans to arms once he found himself trailing some of his peers at the polls.
We made it to the finish line, and two Birds are on the roster, Big Play along with the future Pro Football Hall of Famer Jason Kelce. We feel like some guys are missing. Sure, we can all go back and forth about why someone was snubbed or why they weren’t, but here’s a list of three Philadelphia Eagles that we think are worthy of a recount.
Two are obvious snubs. The other has definitely done enough to prove that he’s worthy of a discussion. Let’s dig into each one.
