A fantastic roster assembled by Philadelphia Eagles vice president/general manager Howie Roseman this past offseason has both thrilled and frightened us through the 18-week, 17-game grind known as the NFL’s regular season. We’ve seen ups, downs, ebbs, and flows. We’ve no doubt seen the unexpected and phenomenal.
Through it all, the 2022-2023 Birds have conquered opponents and shattered league and franchise records en route to a 14-3 record. Those 14 wins are also a franchise record by the way. It’s impossible to achieve what we have seen without a good roster. No one would deny that Philly has one of those, and when that’s the case you can always be certain that there will be some individual recognition for the cogs that make up this machine.
Per Ian Rapoport (by way of Rob Maadi), the Associated Press has announced the members of their First and Second All-Pro Team. Six Eagles made the cut. How about a hand for our guys?
Two Philadelphia Eagles make AP All-Pro First Team. Four more land on the Second Team.
Eight Pro Bowlers, nine Pro Bowl alternates, and five Philadelphia Eagles on the Pro Football Focus 2022 NFL All-Pro Team. Who says nice guys have to finish last? Here are the six Eagles who have made the Associated Press’ First and Second All-Pro Team.
Jason Kelce, center (First Team)
This shouldn’t shock anyone. This is yet another honor in what’s been a Hall-of-Fame career.
Lane Johnson, right tackle (First Team)
Prior to this season, it felt like Lane Johnson was too often ignored and underappreciated despite being the best right tackle in football. He’s been given his shine as of late, and though he never toots his own horn, we’re sure this has to feel good.
Haason Reddick, linebacker (Second Team)
The question everyone is asking is this. How on Planet Earth is he not on the First Team?
James Bradberry, cornerback (Second Team)
It was quite the revenge tour for James Bradberry who proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is still plenty left in the tank. We hope Howie Roseman finds a way to keep him around.
Jalen Hurts, quarterback (Second Team)
Had his season not been derailed by injury, Jalen Hurts would have won the MVP trophy. Heck, we believe he still deserves it.
A.J. Brown, wide receiver (Second Team)
The beneficiary of many of those Jalen Hurts tosses, A.J. Brown set an Eagles franchise record for receiving yards in a season (1,496). That one may stand for a while seeing as how it took almost 30 years for anyone to pass Mike Quick who had previously owned the record since 1983.
