3. Brian Dawkins, safety

According to AI, Weapon X is in the top three best Eagles of all time, and many fans would agree with that sentiment.

"Known for his passion and intensity, Dawkins, a Hall of Famer, was a feared safety who could disrupt passing games and deliver punishing hits. He was a leader on and off the field, and his impact on the defense during his time with the team was immeasurable."


Elected a Hall of Famer in 2018, Brian Dawkins is often the man that Birds fans mention when they are asked who their favorite Eagle of all time is. Dawkins enjoyed nine Pro Bowl nods during his career. Seven came as a member of the Eagles. He's a member of the NFL's All-2000's team (as he should be).

He spent his final three NFL seasons as a member of the Denver Broncos, but as is the case with every other player on this list, Dawk is an Eagle through and through.

2. Chuck Bednarik, linebacker/center

The second-best Eagles player of all time according to AI, is Chuck Bednarik. He's one of the great two-way players of all time, if not the greatest.

"Also a Hall of Famer, Bednarik was a versatile and rugged player who excelled on both offense as a center and defense as a linebacker. His toughness and hard-hitting style earned him the nickname Concrete Charlie and he played a vital role in the Eagles' 1960 NFL Championship victory."


Bednarik played both offense and defense. He was a center and a linebacker, and he excelled at both postions. He is a Hall of Famer, one that was awarded eight Pro Bowl nominations and six All-Pro nods during his 14-year NFL career. He also won two championships with the Eagles as the only player to suit up for the 1949 and 1960 NFL Championship-winning teams.

He's a member of the NFL's All-1950s team as well as its 50th Anniversary All-Time Team, its 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, and its 100th Anniversary All-Time Team.
