Default Aside from Big Dick Nick, if you could personally thank...

Any 2017 Eagle player, coach or front office member who would it be? Thereís obviously a ton of viable choices but I think I have to go Alshon. Corps were a disaster a year before, he got better as year went on and was best on biggest stage. Not to mention to play thru a torn rotator cuff is no joke, I had that surgery and Iím sure he has a way to go to be ready.

Who ya got?

Lane Johnson. The offense completely different when he's a part of it. Plus, he was Long's counterpart on the whole underdog thing, which was a big emotional boost.

Pederson is an obvious choice but letís go with the left side of the OL. Wiz and Big V were not penciled in as starters a year ago. Wiz eventually stepped in and solidified the OL and Big V played well against big time talent.

Shout out to Agholor...for getting his head on straight and turning his career around in a HUGE way. Dude made some HUGE catches for the team this season...we weren't sure if he was a bust before the season started.

Jake Elliot. Comes in as Unknown kicker, hits the big one. Rest his history. He missed some, don't get me wrong. But was instrumental in the season.

Patrick Robinson solidified the slot corner and provided the play that took control of the NFCCG at a time where the Queens were starting to smell themselves a bit. Tried to go with the less obvious choice.

Brandon Graham.

Guy had some tough years early in his career. Was asked to totally change his game for the 3-4. Never went negative. Always kept working. Total difference-maker all of last year, and when it counted.

I'll go with Pederson on this. He knows he wasn't the Birds' number one choice and endured a lot of slings and arrows. I told my Eagles friends over here to give the guy more than a year--he was an ex-player--not only that, but a fairly recent ex-player and the guy knew what it would take to lead that locker room. But I think the seeds were sown not in 2017--but in 2016, when he publicly questioned the players' effort in the loss to Cincy. He got together with his players council, they discussed it and closed out the year with 2 wins and an impressive showing against the Ravens in a close loss.

Plus, if you look at that first year, if he'd made a few different calls or they would have executed better, they could have at least been 12-4 his rookie year.

Default Good post....tough choice but I would start with Kelce

...for saying to the nation what we have been wanting to say for years. Plus I doubted him for a long time, I owe him an apology.

After that, Long & Jenkins, leaders on and off the field.... then Clement, the guy brought it and opened a lot of eyes.

Thought of 4 guys immediately but Iíll go with Nigel Bradham.

He was beyond huge all season, especially with the injuries at that spot. Kendrickís played as well as he ever had here, no question. You gotta think playing next to Bradham raised his level of play. . His style and tenacity had a ripple effect.

(Others in consideration: Jenkins, Cox, Ertz, Graham)

HowLo

The guy took a lot of abuse, but starting with getting Wentz he made the moves which made this possible.

Also Wentz. He put BDN in the position to make this possible.

I've seen him in a bathing suit. Therefore, I know more about the Eagles than any of you.

Pederson. He changed the culture of the team. I expect them to win because he brims with confidence.

If you coach a team to a SB championship you have credibility going forward.
