Philadelphia Eagles Add Three Players To The Pro-Bowl
After a 2011 season of disappointment, three Eagles were rewarded for their play, headed by starting half-back LeSean McCoy. McCoy is currently leading the NFC in rushing with 1309 yards. He’s the fifth back in NFL history with two 1,000-yard seasons with a 4.5 average or higher before his 24th birthday. On top of that, McCoy leads the NFL with 20 total touchdowns, 17 rushing.
LeSean was not just elected to the pro-bowl, he will be the NFC’s starting half-back. McCoy is now recognized as an elite back in the same manner as Adrian Peterson and Frank Gore. LeSean was left out of the pro-bowl last year after leading the NFC in total yards from scrimage. With one game left, McCoy will look to solidify the NFC rushing title.
The second Eagles pro-bowler is defensive end Jason Babin. Babin is second is the NFL with 18 sacks. It is his second consecutive year Babin has earned the honor. At 31 years of age, Babin’s sack total is the second most in NFL history for a player of his age. Michael Strahan had 181/2 at the age of 32.
Rounding out the Pro-Bowlers is left tackle Jason Peters. It is his fifth consecutive selection. Many NFL insiders consider Peters the best left tackle in the league.
In a year the Eagles missed the playoffs, these three players stood out as among the best in the NFL. The Eagles actually have a bright future. With more time to gel as a team, the Eagles are set to make a run in 2012.
