It doesn’t feature a home-run derby as we see in Major League Baseball. There’s no slam-dunk or three-point competition the likes of which we see in the NBA. Come to think of it, if it did, it might receive more viewership. The National Football League’s all-star game has oft been criticized. Let’s be honest. It’s the only football game that none of us have any interest in watching. It’s always cool to see which Philadelphia Eagles earn among football’s elite. We talk about snubs in the City of Brotherly Love often (and we’ll probably get into a few later). This time, however, the voters have done a much better job.
Eight Birds earned enough votes to qualify for a spot on the roster. That’s best in the NFL. We were hoping to see Jordan Mailata get the nod. He didn’t. Again, we’ll discuss that more in detail later, but the guys who did claim spots were worthy. Let’s not waste any more time by delaying.
Attention Philadelphia Eagles fans, here’s a look at your 2022-2023 Pro Bowlers.
If you’re like the rest of us, you already knew a certain offensive lineman would make the cut. You know the one… the anchor. He’s done so for the seventh time. Here he is along with his seven teammates.
- Jason Kelce, center
- Jalen Hurts, quarterback
- A.J. Brown, wide receiver
- Landon Dickerson, left guard
- Lane Johnson, right tackle
- Miles Sanders, running back
- Darius Slay, cornerback
- Haason Reddick linebacker
How about some help from the Philadelphia Eagles social media team?
This is again, the seventh time that Jason Kelce has been selected. Darius ‘Big Play’ Slay is now a five-timer. Lane Johnson has made his fourth Pro Bowl. A.J. Brown is enjoying his second while Haason Reddick, Jalen Hurts, Landon Dickerson, and Miles Sanders have made the all-star roster for the first time.
Here’s where we stand, it would be nice to see our guys play a little flag football as a member of Eli Manning’s team, but well pass. We’d much rather see them miss the game because they’ve qualified to play in the Super Bowl a week later. By the looks of things, they have a shot at doing exactly that.
