Positivity Post: Name your top 5 current Eagles

Alright everyone.  I am sure bye week boredom is setting in for all of us simultaneously.  Missing the anticipation of an Eagles game this weekend is really just completely throwing off my week.  With the loads of negativity we have seen on BGN this season, I thought it would be fun to get some positive vibes going.  Yeah we have problems, yeah there are a ton of questions, but what do we have that you are currently thankful for?  Who are your favorite Eagles?  This doesn't necessarily have anything to do with production, it can be whatever makes you root for a player.  I'll go first, but my goal in all of this is to try to identify BGN's favorite Eagle.  So in the comments section list your top 5 with a short explanation, and don't forget to take the poll.  Also, feel free to add in some 'honorable mentions', I know there are a lot of fringe favorites on this roster.

My top 5 after the jump.

 

  1. Jason Avant - I just love this guy.  Yeah, yeah, he had his worst game ever a few weeks ago from a non-statistical standpoint, but he gets a pass from me.  Jason Avant represents everything I look for in a football player.  Toughness, fundamentals, football intelligence, and a completely non-glamorous role on the team.  I think he is the ultimate "Philly Guy".  He is our definite clutch catch guy and let us not forget when he sacrificed his body on that Miracle at the Meadowlands 2 return only to be concussed.  It will be hard to watch this guy eventually leave the team.  I was thrilled when Joe Banner (or was it Lurie?) deemed Avant and Mike Patterson the heart of the Philadelphia Eagles.
  2. Jeremy Maclin - I will be the first to admit that I hated this pick when we drafted him.  I wanted Knowshon Moreno (believe me, I understand that this is why I am not an NFL GM, and I realize he was already gone).  But Maclin has quickly become a favorite of mine.  The guy simply produces and appears to have zero ego.  He has definitely surpassed DeSean in terms of how valuable he is to this team, although the duo is where the real value is.  I don't have much else to say but simply that I like this kid.  My kind of player . . . a Barry Sanders of WR's in an age of showboating . . . {clears throat and looks at DeSean}.  His trials this summer really helped show his high character, and I actually LIKED his outburst at the reporters a few weeks ago, nothing wrong with showing a little passion.
  3. Todd Herremans - For the first time in as long as I can remember, we have a potential MVP at OL.  This guy has done everything asked of him this year, and not only that, but he has dominated along the way.  I really don't know where we would be right now without the Toddfather saving our ass every week.
  4. Trent Cole - High motor guy indeed.  When Trent is healthy, is there anyone more dominating on the field?  Can't wait to get him back after the bye (hopefully).
  5. LeSean McCoy - I have been a huge fan since he got here, but I am just amazed at his progress and the fact that he is constantly getting better and better.  He seems to have taken on Brian Westbrook's work ethic, and worked on all aspects of his fitness and his game.  LeSean is another guy that simply gets it done out there week in and week out.  I don't even think he has reached his ceiling yet.
Honorable Mention:  Mike Vick (quickly becoming my favorite QB of all time with his game changing ability), Colt Anderson (every team needs a special teams guy like this), Nate Allen/Kurt Coleman (when they are on, I love this defense), Mike Patterson (after this summer, I have mad respect for Mike).
Alright, your turn.
