Mike Quick, 1982 - 1990

An Eagle through and through, prior to holding down the fort as an analyst on the Birds' gameday radio call, Mike Quick was one heck of an NFL wide receiver. He's also the co-owner of a record that can never be broken, a 99-yard TD reception.

All of his nine seasons were spent in an Eagles jersey. He was a two-time First-team All-Pro (1983, 1985), a five-time Pro Bowler (1983–1987), and he led the NFL in receiving yards in 1983. He's a member of the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame, and we wouldn't complain if someone carved him a bust and left it in Canton, Ohio.

Keith Jackson, 1988 - 1991

Keith Jackson earned a spot on the NFL's All-Pro team as a First-Teamer three times during his four seasons as an Eagle. He also earned three of his eventual six Pro Bowl nods and held the franchise's rookie receiving record from 1988 until 2008 when DeSean Jackson broke into the NFL and determined he wanted that record for himself.

Jackson was a weapon. He appeared in 60 regular-season games with 57 starts. 242 receptions, 2,756 receiving yards, and 20 TDs were the results. He'd eventually finish his career as a member of the Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers, but he never enjoyed the same run he had in Philly after leaving.
