The Eagles roster is so loaded that, occasionally, it’s relatively easy to forget about some of the guys it houses.

They say legends are made in the postseason. Anyone who agrees with that theory is correct. Think about it. There’s a reason why we don’t place Dan Marino on the same level as John Elway or Joe Montana, even though we all believe that Marino was one of the greatest talents ever at the position. Nick Foles didn’t have half of Marino’s talent. Saint Nick led the Philadelphia Eagles to a Vince Lombardi Trophy though, so Foles, despite having one of the strangest careers ever is a legend in his own right. Meanwhile, Marino is arguably the best quarterback to never win it all.

With the Wild Card Round in our rearview mirrors, the Eagles are set to play their first football game of this postseason. Hope springs eternal as their roster is loaded with talent, but for some now lesser-mentioned Eagles, this is an opportunity to make franchise legends out of themselves.

Just ask Corey Clement, Alshon Jeffery, or LeGarrette Blount.

. Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle. 74. player. 54. .

Ndamukong Suh was one of the final all-star additions to an Eagles roster that may be remembered as the best that was ever assembled (or the roster that most disappointed us). It all depends on how this playoff run turns out.

In eight games, he’s produced ten total tackles and a sack while seeing 176 snaps, roughly 35% of the team’s total. He’s part of a phenomenal rotation, and if he can produce a few huge plays when he gets his opportunity, that will increase this team’s chances of putting the snap on some Super Bowl glory
