. . . Brandon Graham, 2010 to present. 7. player. 54

Brandon Graham and LeSean McCoy will be Eagles Hall of Famers one day.

Discussing Brandon Graham‘s career forces us to mention four tenures of Eagles head coaches. He was drafted during the Andy Reid era, and he’s played for Chip Kelly, Doug Pederson, and Nick Sirianni.

Philly passed on Earl Thomas during the 2010 NFL Draft to take him, and even though Thomas will wind up being a Hall of Famer and B.G.’s career got off to a slow start, in the end, Graham wound up being the perfect choice for this football team.

Look no further than the greatest strip-sack in Super Bowl history if you need evidence of that one. Plus, Earl Thomas grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan. Yuck!

LeSean McCoy, 2009-2014. 6. player. 54. . .

Bring up the greatest running backs of the 2010s, and there’s no way that LeSean McCoy would be left off of the list. In six years with the Birds, he appeared in 93 games and made 78 starts (that includes two starts in three playoff games). In the process, he added 6,792 rushing yards and 44 rushing touchdowns to go along with 2,282 receiving yards and ten receiving TDs to his NFL resume.

Shady was voted First-Team All-Pro in 2011 and 2013. He earned six Pro Bowl nods (2011, 2013–2017). He led the NFL in rushing touchdowns in 2011 (17) and rushing yards in 2013 (1,607).

Both Graham and McCoy deserve places in the Eagles Hall of Fame, but in terms of Shady, we may need to ask ourselves about how long it will be before his bust is carved and he finds his way into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
