Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson

Though he’s been more consistent over the course of his entire career than Brandon Graham, who got off to a much slower start and has, since, gotten better with time like a fine wine, Lane Johnson and B.G. are mirror images of one another despite playing different positions on opposite sides of the ball. Perhaps lining up versus one another at practice for the past nine seasons is part of the reason.

You can probably argue that B.G, deserved some shine for the 2017 and 2019 seasons. Lane, playing through numerous injuries but starting every game, definitely deserved more mention for what he did in 2015 and this season, yet here we are.

Lane Johnson has been left off of the Pro Bowl roster. He isn’t even an alternate. Some might point to the fact that he’s missed three games as part of the reason, but that happens all of the time with guys who are voted on.

Dalvin Cook missed three games this season for the Minnesota Vikings. Kyler Murray was inactive from Week 9 to Week 11. They’re both on the Pro Bowl roster. Lane Johnson definitely deserves more shine than he’s getting.

He’s already a three-time Pro Bowler (2017-2017). In all honesty, he has a legitimate Pro Football Hall of Fame argument. One or two more trips to the NFL’s all-star game could go a long way in driving that point home. If he’s healthy, he’s completely capable, and had the Eagles won a few more games this season, he probably would have earned a trip for his most recent efforts.
