Picking the Eagles Mount Rushmore of Last Decade

Picking the Eagles Mount Rushmore of Last Decade
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

A Philadelphia Eagles season that started with a 10-1 record wildly unraveled, as bewildered fans and PA sportsbooks watched the team flame out in a blowout playoff loss in Tampa Bay.

Now, though, the offseason is in full swing, which allows us to take a step back and look at some fun historic takes on the Eagles - like the always loved Mount Rushmore.

PennStakes.com – your source for PA sports betting apps – used Pro-Football-Reference.com for some help in determining a Mount Rushmore from the last decade, 2014-2024. The players included had to have played for the Eagles for at least three years during this time period and it is based on their Approximate Value (based on Pro-Football-Reference.com standards) during those years with the team. Here are the faces:

All 4 Still with Eagles

The Eagles’ veteran-fueled team is not as highly regarded by sportsbooks heading into 2024 as they have been in recent years. Caesars PA Sportsbook places the Eagles’ odds to win the Super Bowl at +2000, which is eighth overall.

Unlike the Mount Rushmore for most teams, all four players are on the active roster and all four have played for 10 years each. But that could change before the start of the 2024 season.

Center Jason Kelce (116 approximate value during the decade) is a Super Bowl champion, six-time first-team All-Pro and a seven-time Pro Bowler. He anchors arguably the best offensive line in the NFL and is the older brother of Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, the three-time Super Bowl champion.

Defensive tackle and free agent Fletcher Cox (109 approx. value) has played in 188 games, recorded 351 tackles, posted 70 sacks and 16 forced fumbles during his career in Philadelphia. His accolades include a Super Bowl win and six Pro Bowls. An anchor on the defensive line, he was a member of the NFL’s All-2010s team. Cox also could retire.

Offensive tackle Lane Johnson (88 AV) teamed up with Kelce on one of the most-feared offensive lines in the game and has started in all 143 career games played. Also a Super Bowl champion, Johnson has earned five Pro Bowl selections and two All-Pro honors.

Defensive end Brandon Graham (61 AV) is a free agent who hopes to play one more year in Philadelphia. He has a Super Bowl title and one Pro Bowl selection during his 10-year stint with the Eagles. Graham has played in 195 career games, recorded 344 solo tackles, posted 73 sacks and 21 forced fumbles. His forced fumble of Tom Brady with just 2:16 remaining in Super Bowl LII was the key play in the Eagles’ victory.

Four players who have had a major impact on the sport in the city, but all of whom are wondering what their next step in their careers might be.
