It’s Eagles Mt. Rushmore nomination time

Getty Images

We’re not sure how the upcoming team-by-team Mt. Rushmore series on NBC Sports Network’s Pro Football Talk will be received.

But if the early interest displayed via the process of soliciting nominations for the voting is any indication, this idea may actually not suck.

Last night’s request for nominees for the Redskins’ version of the four-headed mountain sculpture already has produced 200 submissions and counting.

So, Eagles fans, here’s your chance to outdo them.  Nominate below the folks you’d immortalize from the Philly football franchise.

  1. How about….

    Pete Pihos
    Steve Van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Harold Carmichael
    Donovan McNabb

  2. Brian Dawkins.
    Reggie White.
    Chuck Bednarik.

    and one of McNabb, Westbrook or Van Buren.

  3. You have to go way back with this franchise. Big question is does Reggie White get there after leaving for “Green”er pastures. Chuck Bednarik, Jerome Brown, Tom Brookshier, Freddie Mitchell

  4. 1. Bednarik
    2. Reggie White
    3. Dick Vermeil
    4. Brian Dawkins

    McNabb is just too polarizing to the fan base to be on their Mt. Rushmore. Vermeil is loved in that city.

  5. When you step back and realize Robert Griffin is already better than every single person to ever put on an Philadelphia Eagles jersey, you see how superior the Washington Redskins really are. #TheEaglesareliterallyawaste

  6. And then: Randall Cunningham, Chuck Bednarik, Ron Jaworski, Mike Quick, Brian Dawkins, Andy Reid, Steve Van Buren, Reggie White, Jerome Brown, Tom Brookshier.

    And definitely Hollis Thomas.

  7. easy….. Dawkins. Concrete Chuck. Van Buren…….wait maybe its not that easy. McNabb? no. let’s be serious here. Reggie White. let’s go with that

  8. Reggie White is tricky because a big chunk of his career was in GB. Randall as well to a lesser extent.

    Brian Dawkins
    Chuck Bednarik
    Reggie White
    Brian Westbrook

  9. I think it has to be Chuck Bednarik, Brian Dawkins, Steve Van Buren and Reggie White.

    Some hesitation with Reggie since he’s also known as a Packer given what he did there, but I don’t think it’s enough to drop him.

    Honorable mention: Andy Reid, Dick Vermeil, Greasy Neale, Bill Bergey, Tom Brooksheir, Ron Jaworski, Mike Quick, Harold Carmichael, Randall Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, Tommy McDonald, and Pete Pihos.

  10. Winston Justice
    Shawn Andrews
    1st Down Freddie
    King Dunlap

    …then, dynamite mountain.

  11. When you look at the list of nominees, it’s a pretty sad state of the franchise’s history when the same 4-5 guys keep coming up. They’re quality players, but that’s it??????

  12. Van Buren, Bednarik, Bill Bradley, Bill Bergey, Brian Dawkins. Vermeil and Jim Johnson no objection to adding (Johnson was the credibility of Andy Reid after all).

  13. Reggie White
    Steve Van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Brian Dawkins

    Honorable mention:
    McNabb
    Carmichael
    J. Brown
    Westbrook
    Reid

  14. Cunningham
    Bednarik
    Mcnabb
    Dawkins

    F Reggie white he says God wanted him to be a packer or was is just the money. they can have him. He wanted to go into the hof as a packer so why show him so much respect eagles fans he turned his back on all of us. All the guys listed above wanted to be eagles for life! But the eagles turned there back on them.

  15. Wow. I’m a Giants fan, but I’m surprised to not see a single Westbrook nomination. That guy was awesome as an Eagle. I also think Jim Johnson, although a coordinator, would be a great pick. I think Andy road that wave for a while.

    Reggie White raises an interesting thought. I wonder how many guys show up on multiple Mount Rushmores?

  16. Say what you want about mcnabb he was the winningest eagles qb in history so why wouldn’t he be whether you like him or not. He brought the eagles to more NFC championships then they were in over there whole span of history. Holds pretty much all the qb records for phi. Everyone wanted him gone look how that’s worked out we went from NFC championship every year to not even making the playoffs and last in division. Yea your right mcnabb was just the problem. Idiots

  17. The first three seem fairly easy; Dawkins, Bednarik and Reggie. The fourth seems to be all over the map. I’m going to give my vote to McNabb because the last three years really show how important a steady, strong starting quarterback who took us to (and won) playoff games year after year is.

    Tommy McDonald, Steve Van Buren, Jerome Brown and Brian Westbrook were also worth of consideration.

  18. Chuck Bednarik- best player ever for the eagles (last true two-way player)

    Brian Dawkins- heart of defense for 14 year,
    Vocal leader, and Philadelphia community philanthropist

    Donovan McNabb- best qb (by far) to play for franchise (despite the bad press, he deserves it)

    Andy Reid- most successful head coach to coach the franchise (despite the bad press, he deserves it)

    Arguments can be made for others, but I think these are the 4 names people think of and the ones who have had the most success during their time with the franchise. Stop hating McNabb and Reid fellow birds fans, they gave us over a decade of great football, nonetheless, very excited for the Kelly era!

  19. Head coach Earle “Greasy” Neale and running back Steve Van Buren who led the team to three consecutive NFL Championship Games, winning two of them in 1948 and 1949.

    Hall of Famer Norm Van Brocklin who led the Eagles to their 3rd Championship in 1960.

    Head Coach Andy Reid who led the team during it’s best Superbowl-era times.

    Honurable mentions to Dick Vermeil, Randall Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook and Brian Dawkins

  20. Van Buren
    White
    Bednarik
    Burt Bell

    I hate to leave off BDawk, but its impossible to overstate just how much of an impact Bell had–not just on the Eagles, but on the NFL as a whole. He’d be a strong candidate to be on the League’s Mount Rushmore, along with Pete Rozelle, Art Rooney, and Well Mara.

  21. Chuck Bednarik
    Reggie White
    Brian Dawkins
    Merrill Reese

    I don’t even like Bednarik (he has always come across as a jerk in interviews), but he’s the most iconic member of the franchise prior to Reggie White. Reggie White and Brian Dawkins are indisputable. There are a lot of solid candidates for the 4th spot (Dick Vermeil, Wilbur Montgomery, Buddy Ryan, Randall Cunningham, Jerome Brown, Andy Reid, Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook). Steve Van Buren is an all time great Eagle, but so few remember him at this point it is hard to go with him.

    I would say in terms of people that long time Eagles fans think of when they think of the Eagles, Merrill Reese has to be in the top 4. He’s been calling the games since 1977, and I can’t imagine classic Eagles moments without also hearing his call.

  22. As an Eagles fan I am torn on Reggie, he really belongs on the Packers Mt. Rushmore than the Eagles.

    Chuck Bednarik
    Donovan McNabb
    Steve Van Buren
    Brian Dawkins

  23. Chuck Bednarik
    Brian Dawkins
    Steve Van Buren
    Reggie White

    HM
    Harold Carmichael
    Wilbert Montgomery
    Pete Pihos
    Bill Bergey
    Donovan McNabb
    Andy Reid
    Dick Vermeil

  24. Bednarik – HOF, 2-way player

    White – HOF, best D-lineman of a generation

    Dawkins – sure-fire HOF, heart and soul for a decade

    McNabb – underappreciated, but most successful QB in the history of the franchise.

  25. I love the people who are missing the concept that mt rushmore has 4 heads on it and only give 2 names. Geniuses in Philly. That being said i nominate 4 heads of vince papalle. probably the most famous and well liked eagle of all time. and that says all you need to know about eagle’s football and their fans.

  26. Of all-time:
    Burt Bell
    Steve van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Tommy McDonald

    Of my fanmanship era (1981-present):
    Mike Quick
    Reggie White
    Brian Dawkins
    Andy Reid

  27. 1. Tommy McDonald
    2. Chuck Bednarik
    3. Brian Dawkins
    4. Tom Brookshier

    Gotta go more with the older guys who got us NFL championships. But leading us to the Super Bowl also counts.

  28. 1) Lurie for being such a great owner

    2) McNabb for vomiting away the franchise’s only chance at glory

    3) Santa Claus for obvious reasons

    4) Rocky, for giving the city the only taste of a championship that Eagles fans will ever get.

    Trolling over.

  29. First 4 in…

    Randall Cunningham
    Chuck Bednarik
    Donovan McNabb
    Steve Van Buren

    First 4 out…

    Wilbert Montgomery
    Harold Carmichael
    Brian Dawkins
    Reggie White

    Reid=Honorable Mention

  30. Brian Dawkins
    Reggie White
    Donovan McNabb
    Randall Cunningham
    Steve Van Buren

    Of course Jaws, Westbrook, Mike Quick, Jeremiah Trotter all get honorable mentions.

  31. Big Cowboys fan saying:

    1. Chuck Bednarik. He will forever epitomize football in that city barring a gigantic culture change.

    2. Donovan McNabb. As crazy as it sounds, I think you have to put him up there. He was such a good quarterback that defined an era of kicking Dallas around. They may not have won the whole thing, but you can’t put any QB above him. You can’t.*

    3. Reggie White. He’ll forever be a Packer AND an Eagle in history’s eyes.

    4. Steve Van Buren. He won two championships with them. That’s what Philly values the most.

    *Maybe Dawkins over McNabb. There has to be someone from the Reid era!

  32. Seriously – Rocky Balboa should be honorable mention. He gets the crowd more fired up than any player on that team since B Dawk left.

    In 10 years Shady McCoy might be up there.

    Having Andy Reid and Joe Banner gone feels similar to the optimistic and rejuvenated feeling after you finally get out of a bad long term relationship.

  33. Norm VanBrocklin, Tommy McDonald, Randall Cunningham, Harold Carmichael, Brian Dawkins, Chuck Bednarick, Jerome Brown, Wilbert Montgomery

  34. 1. Concrete Charlie 2. The minister of D 3. Van buren 4. Dawkins 5. McNabb just misses cut w/ Tommy McDonald & Randall for revolutionizing position.

  35. brian dawkins, andy reid, chuck bednarik, reggie white…and jevon kearse. (too soon?)

  36. Man these are fun, exciting and interesting to see what fans think of their own team and of other teams. Tough too, lots of great players. I agree with the Jim Johnson nod over Reid because that defense helped make them competitive and able to get to those championship games. Tough on McNabb and Westbrook…hard to say. Cunningham or McNabb–Jaws wasn’t that great IMO—good but not that great.
    Brian Dawkins–without a doubt is on this one.
    Bednarik and Van Brocklin both.

    I’d say White is more of a Packers one but then that is tough–because GB is already going to have three spots of many great players-Lombardi, Starr and Farve–and plenty more to follow, but I agree White should be more of a Packer than an Eagle–just like Carter is a Viking, and not an Eagle.

    My list is
    B. Dawk
    Bendarik
    J. Johnson
    Van Brocklin

    HM-Cunningham, McNabb, Brown, Quick, Allen, Westbrook, Reid, Vermeil, Carmichael, Jaws.

  37. An Eagles Mt. Rushmore without McNabb shouldn’t even be taken seriously. Randall Cunningham is my all-time favorite player, but McNabb has to get the nod. Randall only lead the Eagles to one post-season victory over the Saints. McNabb had numerous post-season wins and a Super Bowl appearance. So the list should be…

    1. Reggie White
    2. Donovan McNabb
    3. Brian Dawkins
    4. Wil Montgomery
    5. Andy Reid

  38. Brian Dawkins
    Chuck Bednarik
    Steve VanBuren
    Tommy McDonald

    Reggie White went into the HOF as a Packer…it would be pathetic of us to put him on the Mt. Rushmore.

  39. Those listing McNabb must not be from Philly, cuz that’s a j-o-k-e JOKE!

    My list would be:

    1. Reggie White
    2. Brian Dawkins
    3. Chuck Bednarik
    4. Ron Jaworski

  40. Andre Waters, Keith Byars, Clyde Simmons, Jerome Brown, Eric Allen, Keith Jackson, Bobby Taylor, Troy Vincent, Seth Joyner, Brian Dawkins, Brian Westbrook, Jon Runyan, Tra Thomas, David Akers, Fred Barnett.

  41. Chuck Bedarnik
    Steve Van Buren
    Brian Dawkins
    Jerome Brown

    Reggie White was better known as a Packer, and he won as a Packer, as good as he was in Philly. It was hard for me to leave Randall Cunningham off of the list. He’s my favorite offensive Eagle. Donavan McNabb would be #6 behind Cunningham, because of stats.

    Dick Vermil is beloved in Philly, but he won an SB with the Rams. Buddy Ryan is loved, too, but I didn’t like him making Cunningham into a running QB. It’s too soon for anyone to give Reid anything, in terms of Coaches.

  42. 1. Donovan McNabb
    2. Brian Dawkins
    3. Brian Westbrook
    4. David Akers

    Those old guys are cool and all, but all of their records have been broken. I don’t think the new guys should be discredited simply for being new, and I don’t think old guys should be given exception just because of seniority.

  43. Chuck Bednarik, Reggie White, Steve Van Buren, and Brian Dawkins. It really can’t be anyone else, though McNabb certainly deserves an honorable mention.

  44. 1. Norm Van Brocklin. Everyone forgets him. PFT gang, aks the crew at NFL Films, they’ll learn eveyone up on Van Brocklin.

    2. Reggie White

    3. Stever Van Buren

    4. Randall Cunningham

  45. I guess I have a longer hisory than most of you.

    No one mentioned Wes Hopkins, Andre Waters and Jerry Sizemore. Did someone mention Norm VanBrocklin?

  46. People leaving Steve Van Buren off their list really need to research their Eagle history. Van Buren & Bednarik are automatic, and without discussion, the last 2 spots are wide open.

  47. Brian Dawkins, Bill Bergey, Andre Waters and Bednarik (football’s a contact sport)

    f Reggie. Hopkins another good hitter. Sizemore and Runyan right up there.

    on O – Pete Retzlaff. Wilbert…

  48. Steve Van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Harold Carmichael (or Wilbert Montgomery)
    Donovan McNabb

    Honorable mention–Ron Jaworski, Norm Van Brocklin, Tommy McDonald, Reggie White, Jerome Brown, Andy Reid, Brian Dawkins. And for one play only, Herm “The Fumble” Edwards.

    Has anyone noticed how few Eagles coaches have been mentioned?

    ————–

    I am not an Eagles fan, but agree and would even say Dawkins is an automatic third with only the fourth place up for debate. I personally went White because 124 sacks in 8 seasons (74 with GB) and was truly one of the greatest players to ever play the game, but I do get that a Mt Rushmore for fans would be about having long term players who spent the majority of their career with one team.

    I am surprised to learn some Eagle fans don’t view McNabb as one of their greatest (not saying top 4 of all time, but certainly top 10); 7 double-digit winning seasons, 8 times to the playoffs, 5 conference championship games with one superbowl appearance, all time Eagles passing leader, and 6-time pro bowler. Had the Eagles won just one superbowl under his watch he would be automatic for this list.

  50. Anyone who doesn’t have Steve Van Buren on the list, should do some internet searches.

    He was Jim Brown/Earl Campbell of his day.

    He led the league in rushing 4 times. The first running back in NFL history to achieve three consecutive rushing titles

    He was the NFL all time rushing leader from 1949 to 1958.

    Member of the 75th anniversary all time team.

  51. Randall Cunningham, Dick Vermeil, Andy Reid and McNabb although McNabb is not a fan favorite these days.

  52. First 3 are easy; the fourth is a harder choice:

    1 – Bert Bell, team founder, HOF, inventor of the NFL draft, and long-time NFL Commissioner;

    2 – Chuck Bednarik – last 2 way player, HOF, and member of 2 NFL champions (’49, ’60) – and the Eagles would not have won the last one without him;
    3 – Steve Van Buren – multiple seasons as NFL’s leading rusher and scorer, HOF, and member of 2 NFL champions (’48, ’49) – and the Eagles would not have won either without him;

    4 – Pete Pihos, one of the last of the 2-way players, multiple season as NFL’s leading receiver, HOF, member of 2 NFL champions (’48, ’49).

    Yes – none from after 1960. The late ’40’s were the golden era of Eagles football. Unfortunately I have no personal recollection of those times.

    There are at least 3 true Honorable Mentions, any of whom could reasonably occupy the 4th slot above:

    5 – Greasy Neale, architect of the 4-3 defense, HOF, and the coach who first transformed a traditionally bad Eagles team into a consistent winner, topped by 2 consecutive NFL Championships (’48, ’49);

    6 – Norm Van Brocklin, HOF and QB of the 1960 Champions, though he played more years on the LA Rams;

    7 – Tommy McDonald – HOF and WR on the 1960 Champions.

    No modern candidate comes close to qualifying for the Eagles’ Mt. Rushmore, though there are others who also rate a lower-case honorable mention:

    8 -Dick Vermeil – changed a bad team into a good one that finally made it to its first Super Bowl, and launched the modern era of good-but-not-great Eagles football teams;

    9 – Reggie White – perennial All-Pro DL, HOF, but most remembered from his later days with the Packers (BTW – FU, Norman Braman. Again.);

    10- Brian Dawkins – legit candidate for HOF, smart, selfless, hard-hitting, great-covering S and key to Eagles’ blitzing defenses for better than a decade in the ’90’s and ’00’s;

    11 – Wilbert Montgomery – versatile RB and key to Vermeil’s offense in the late 70’s and early 80’s;

    12 – Brian Westbrook – versatile RB and key to Andy Reid’s offense in the 2000’s;

    13 – Randall Cunningham – versatile QB and key to Buddy Ryan’s offense in the late 80’s and early 90’s – an awesome talent who never quite got it all done.

    While I have a few more personal favorites, for the snake-bitten Eagles, somehow stopping at 13 seems appropriate. (Sorry, 5, but there’s no whining on Rushmore….)

  53. Bednarik, Andy Reid, Brian Dawkins, Mike Mamula.

    Hah. Alright, Reggie White instead of Mamula.

  54. Chuck Bednarik
    Brian Dawkins
    Jerome Brown
    Donovan McNabb (his numbers in franchise history speak for themselves despite my disinterest in the man himself)

  55. Wilbert Montgomery
    Harold Carmichael
    Ron Jaworski
    Bednarik
    Van Buren
    Mike Quick
    Cunningham
    Reggie White
    Westbrook
    Dawkins
    Jerry Robinson
    Seth Joyner
    Clyde Simmons

  56. For the E-A-G-L-E-S, Eagles, I gotta go:

    1. Bert Bell
    2. Steve Van Buren
    3. Chuck Bednarik
    4. Brian Dawkins

    As a Redskins fan, the single most tormenting Eagle of all time is Wilbert Montgomery, followed closely by his reincarnation, Brian Westbrook.

    Hail!

  57. Cunningham may be my favorite but to put him ahead if McNabb is laughable. It’s not even close.

  58. Brian Dawkins.
    Reggie White.
    Chuck Bednarik
    Jerome Brown
    Harold Carmichael
    Steve Van Buren
    Brian Westbrook
    Norm Van Broklin

    And everyone that is not a sorry… Cowgirl, Foreskin, Gnat.

  59. Giant fan showing respect…

    Reggie White
    Jerome Brown
    Dick Vermeil
    Steve Van Buren

    Chuck Bednarik was a close 5th, but I think Van Buren edges him out. Tough call on that one.

    When you look at the list of nominees, it’s a pretty sad state of the franchise’s history when the same 4-5 guys keep coming up. They’re quality players, but that’s it??????
    —————————
    No, actually is shows were an intelligent fan base that can properly analyze our franchise throughout its history, rather than simply picking our favorite players/coaches/owners from the last 2 decades, as some teams fans will inevitably do.

  61. Only picking 4 is tough, but here’s my list in no particular order…

    Greasy Neale, Steve Van Buren, Chuck Bednarik, Brian Dawkins

    Honorable Mention(legitimate contenders)

    Bert Bell, Pete Pihos, Reggie White, Wilbert Montgomery, Harold Carmichael, Norm Van Brocklin, Tommy Mcdonald

    Next level down(not quite there)

    Dick Vermiel, Jerome Brown, Brian Westbrook, Mike Quick, Jim Johnson, Jeffery Lurie, Andy Reid, Donovan McNabb, Seth Joyner, Clyde Simmons, Buddy Ryan, Jon Runyan, Troy Vincent

  62. Sure, Reggie won a Super Bowl in GB, but he was a more productive during his time in Philly. In 8 years in Philly he piled up 124 sacks and 794 tackles, as compared to 68.5 sacks and 239 tackles over 6 seasons in GB.

  63. Chuck Bednarik
    Reggie White
    Brian Dawkins

    Those three are a given.

    I would love to say Cunningham, since he is the one that drew me to the Eagles and I have faithfully followed ever since, but he never stayed healthy enough to get it done (SB).

    I don’t think any modern Eagles on offense warrant the selection. Our WRs have been mediocre and just recently got into top 1/4 of the league with Maclin and Jackson, not enough history to warrant anything there.

    So I think you have to go back and pick:
    Wilbert Montgomery

    But let’s face it… the Eagles are a team known for defense. Tough, punishing, kick-your-butt-all-day defense. And I love that.

    RIP Jim Johnson.

  64. In order:

    1. Chuck Bednarik
    2. Brian Dawkins
    3. Reggie White
    4. Steve van Buren
    5. Pete Pihos
    6. Seth Joyner
    7. Tommy McDonald
    8. Jerome Brown
    9. Randall Cunningham
    10. Brian Westbrook

  65. Santa Claus, Michael Irvin, Donovan McNabb and Andy Reid. All guys that deserved far more respect than they got from the most arrogant, delusional fans in professional sports. The rest of the teams in the NFC East have WON more Super Bowls than the Feebles have APPEARED in (and lost,) yet they act like they’re the best franchise in the league.

  66. It has to be as follows:

    Steve Van Buren- Best running back of the 40’s. Scored the game winning touchdown for the first eagles championship in 1948. Held all eagles rushing records until brian westbrook.

    Chuck Bednarik- Last two way player to dominate the game playing center and middle linebacker. “Concrete Charlie” made the game saving tackle in our last championship in 1960 against Lombardi’s Packers.

    Reggie White- Quite Arguably one of the most dominate defensive ends of all time. A physical monster, not many lineman could stand up to his spear arm move.

    Brian Dawkins- Weapon X! Again, arguably one of the best safeties of all time. Most physical safety, most intimidating, most passionate. His warmups on the field before the game and his antics running out of the tunnel are still amazing. Probably my favorite eagle of all time, and probably one of the most beloved players by any eagles fan I could talk to.

    Honorable Mentions-

    Players- Norm Van Brocklin, Ron Jaworski, Randall Cunningham, Donovan Mcnabb, Brian Westbrook, Tommy Macdonald, Harold Carmichael, Jerome Brown, Troy Vincent, Dave Akers, Pete Pihos, and John Runyan

    Coaches- Dick Vermeil, Andy Reid, Buddy Ryan

  67. Brian Dawkins
    Jim Johnson
    Chuck Bednarik
    Jerome Brown

    Reggie White probably gets a spot on the Packers’ Mount Rushmore, and I’m going by my “no player gets on more than one team’s Mount Rushmore” rule.

  68. Eagles got some great history when you consider players like Westbrook or Randall Cunningham probly wont make the Mt.

    Reggie White, Van B, and B Dawkins no doubt!!!

    Go Hawks!!!!

  69. reggie white
    jerome brown
    chuck bednarik
    steve van buren

    tough to omit:
    randall cunningham
    eric allen
    brian westbrook

  70. In chronological order:

    Steve Van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Reggie White
    Brian Dawkins

  71. Jon Harris, Kevin Allen, Leonard Mitchell, Leonard Renfro Honorable Mention to Mike Mamula for never quite getting there like the eagles winning the superbowl

  72. Chuck Bednarik
    Steve Van Buren
    Reggie White
    Tommy McDonald

    I will give you Brian Dawkins if you feel that Reggie spent too much time in Green Bay, but I do not.

    And I am not an Iggles fan, but how can someone like Pete Retzlaff who has had his jersey number retired, for God sake, get the same number of mentions here as Rich Kotite?

  73. Steve Van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Donovan McNabb
    Brian Dawkins
    Wilbert Montgomery
    Greasy Neal
    Andy Reid

  74. Bednarik, white, dawkins, mcnabb. As much as philly fans hate mcnabb, you cannot deny he led that team during its greatest stretch. Plus, what would a philly rushmore be if there wasnt a reason for philly fans to throw batteries at it?

  75. Reggie White
    that short guy from the 50’s or 60’s that everyone loves so much
    Donovan McNabb

    McNabb was the best QB the Eagles ever had, but would truly define the Eagles and their fans by having a player up on the mountain that all the fans hate. Only in Philadelphia …

  76. McNabb (best QB in team history)
    Andy Reid (winningest coach in team history)
    Jim Johnson (crazy genius DC during most dominant years)
    Reggie White (HOF DL who ate QBs for snacks)

    Runner up: Dawkins (most beloved safety and toughest Eagle in history)

  77. VanBuren and Bednarik–before my time, but you have to know your history
    White–one of the greatest defenders ever
    Dawkins–represents the modern era and epitomizes what Eagles fans love–passion, effort, and dedication

  78. Bednarik
    Van Buren
    Vermeil
    McNabb

    I remove Reggie reluctantly because he is a HOF as an Eagle and a Packer so for the Eagles Ring of Honor all these guys here summarize Eagles football and our history. Say what you will about McNabb, he was amazing during his career with an overall pedestrian offense other than Westbrook. He is still the face of a decade of some of the best Eagles football in history. Not to mention is statistically the best QB of all of them.

    Honorable mention: Buddy Ryan, Randall Cunningham

  79. From a Redskins fan…

    Chuck Bednarik
    Andy Reid
    Donovan McNabb (it pains me to say that)
    Harold Carmichael

    Good representation from different eras of their success.

    HM: Montgomery, Vermeil, Dawkins, White, Buddy Ryan

  80. Steve Van Buren
    Chuck Bednarik
    Reggie White
    Brian Dawkins

    I feel terrible leaving Randall Cunningham and Donovan McNabb out of it, but it is what it is.
