Eagles legends possibly playing their final games with the franchise
Fletcher Cox played each of his first 11 seasons in midnight green. Is this the last ride in the midnight green?
Eagles fans learn how to hold their team accountable before they learn how to cheer. With Fletcher Cox being a team captain, one of the highest-salaried players on the roster, and a future Hall of Famer, no one has been shy about calling him out when his play has been substandard.
Being a member of the 2010s All-Decade Team hasn’t helped Fletch escape criticism as of late. Some of it has been deserved, but to whom much is given, much is required.
Here’s where we all may have failed Fletch to some degree. We give guys a boot in the rear end when they deserve it. We have to give them a pat on the back when they deserve that too.
There are so many stars on the Eagles’ roster that it’s easy to overlook some of these guys from time to time. Dare we say we’ve overlooked the job Number 91 is doing?
Quietly, Cox has pieced together his best statistical campaign since 2018. He finished the regular season with 20 solo tackles, 43 total tackles, seven sacks, 14 additional quarterback hits, and a forced fumble. A Super Bowl win would be a nice feather in the cap if this is indeed his final run.
Let’s hope that’s how it ends. As one of the greatest Eagles ever, Fletch definitely deserves that. You can best believe, though, they get on him from time to time, every Birds fan walking is cheering for him.
