And with the votes tallied, the Eagles All-Star team reunites starters Clyde Simmons (96) and Reggie White (92). With tow spots left as backups: Trent Cole,  Hugh Douglas, Jevon Kearse, and William Fuller compete. Top two are backups!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eagladelphia started a interesting series here and I'm here to help him. When we think of the Eagles, we think of high powered offenses and dominating defenses. Well, probably one of the strongest positions the Eagles have ever had has been the defensive ends; hard hitting relentless guys that try to rip the quarterbacks head off. When I first started, I thought it was easily going to be Trent Cole and Reggie White, two of the most well known and talented defensive ends for the Eagles. But the more I researched the more I second guessed myself. The original topic/question is below.

I was thinking of putting together an All-timeStar squad for the Eagles to go up in a game(s)  against any other All-time squad from the NFL.  If other teams' fans get involved in this, that would be fun too.  We have to agree on the players we are going to put on this squad, so we can all throw names out there and make our arguments and we have to all agree upon the best choice, or vote on the best choice.  So everybody throw all the names out there and make your points, if we can't come to a consensus then we'll put together a poll at the end and decide our winner that way.  

More after the jump...

I'm going to list the nominees that are most deserving. There will be 4 selected, 2 starters and 2 reserves. If someone wants a player added, just leave a comment with his background and I'll add him. It would also be helpful if you agree that someone needs to be added, rec the comment and I'll know people agree. Without further ado, the nominees!

Carl "Big Daddy" Hairston: Eagles DE from 1976-1983, 7th round pick

4783978_medium

via www.sportsbuy.com

"Big Daddy" was the predecessor for the infamous Reggie White. Drafted in the seventh round by Vermeil's Eagles in 1976, he was the cornerstone of the Eagles defense for the next 8 years. He became a three time conference defensive end. He started 8 games his rookie season at DT and then transitioned to DE his second year as the starter, beginning a five year streak of 100+ tackles. In 1979, 15 of those were sacks, toping the NFC. That same season the Eagles posted a 11-5 record, the best since 1961. He was apart of the Super-bowl XV Eagles, that lost to the Raiders. He was traded to the Browns in 1984, spending 6 years there and concluded his 15-year career with the Cardinals in 1990. He finished his career with 94 sacks and 1,141 tackles. From there he was a college scout for the Phoenix Cardinals from 1991-1993, a Pro Scout for the Chiefs in 1994, and a defensive line coach in the NFL from 1995-2008 in the following order: Chiefs, Rams, Chiefs, Packers.

Dennis "Big Foot" Harrison: 1978-1984, 4th round pick

1982-446-fb-tps-na_f_285x412_medium

via cnt.toppsmillion.com

Harrison was drafted in the forth round out of Vanderbilt, just happy to be selected.

"If you go and look at press clippings back then, I wasn't supposed to make it to the NFL," said Harrison. 

http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/news/Story.asp?story_id=12375

His nickname wasn't very creative, he was 6'8" and 275 lbs, but his pass rushing skill were. He too was apart of the Super-bowl XV Eagles. In 1982, when the NFL introduced sacks as an official stat, Harrison in his fifth season had 10.5, leading the team and one shy from leading the league. That was the same season that was shortened. Over his seven seasons, he accumulated 34 sacks. The following season. Harrison was the only Eagle selected to the Pro-bowl. After the Eagles in 1984, he played with the Los Angles Rams, 49ers, and Falcons

Greg Brown: 1981-1988, not drafted

Gbrown-110206_medium

via assets.philadelphiaeagles.com

Greg Brown's road as an NFL player was a interesting one to say the least. After 3 seasons at Kansas State University, he transfered to Eastern Illinois where he couldn't play because of the NCAA's transfer rule. By the time he was eligible to play, me moved back home to Washington D.C., doing construction work and more specifically concrete work for office buildings. He worked in the construction field for two years until Easter Illinois' DL coach John Teerlinck talked to him about playing in the NFL. HE soon was offered a tryout by the Eagles, who had just come off it's NFC Championship season. They thought he was a wide receiver at first. 

 

"I went in and talked with (defensive line) coach Chuck Clausen. He took me around on a tour and told me the things that they were looking for and what they'd expect. At first, he was kind of skeptical. He said, 'I don't know, you're kind of small.' And I explained to him, 'All I want is a shot. I can put more weight on! I've been out of ball for a couple years, I haven't really had the need for the weight.' Coach Clausen said he was going to get the game film on me and would get back with me.

"Coach called and they wanted to take a look at me in the mini-camp. It was me and like 100 guys out there. I went through the agility (drills) and then we had to run 40s and my 40 time was just almost like Wilbert's time. I ran a 4.2, so they were really impressed. I talked with coach Clausen and he said, 'We're going to invite you back, but we would like to see you with at least 15 to 20 more pounds when you come to (training) camp.'"

http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/news/Story.asp?story_id=10285

 

By the start of the season, he was 265 pounds. He finished his rookie season with 7.5 sacks and his best game against the New York Giants, collecting two sacks. After three seasons, Brown earned a starting job and racked up 16 sacks that season. However, the next season Greg had to move to DT in a 3-4 in Buddy's new defense. He had one good season in Buddy's defense.

Clyde-simmons-1988-300x233_display_image_medium

via cdn.bleacherreport.net

Simmons was drafted out of Western Carolina in the 9th round in the 1986 draft. He was an amazing pass rusher at 292 lbs. I can't name many 4-3 DE's that weight that much. He is 1 of 24 players to hold over a 100 sacks. He finished his career 11th in sacks with 121.5. With the Eagles he lead the NFL in sacks with 19 in 1992. After the 1993 season he played with the JaguarsBengals and Bears before calling it quits in 2000. He made Bleacher Report's Top 50 Philadelphia Eagles of all Time at #22. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/499152-top-50-philadelphia-eagles-of-all-time/page/30

Reggie White: Heart of a Legend (via YouJustWait)

William Henry Fuller Jr.: 1984-1998, 21st overall in the 1984 Supplemental Draft of USFL and CFL Players by the Los Angles Rams

121704-fuller2_medium

via assets.philadelphiaeagles.com

Although drafted by the Rams in 1984, William started of his career in the USFL with the Stars (once owned in Philly). In 1986 he became a free-agent in the USFL and the Rams traded his rights to the Houston Oilers. HE only recored 2 sacks in his first two seasons, but in 1988 he tied a team high with 8.5 sacks. He then recored 14.5 sacks over 1989 and 1990. And then tied the in with 15 sacks in 1991, earing a Pro-Bowl. Here is an article on him as an Eagle.

Former Eagles defense end William Fuller (1994-96) describes himself as a man that is always reaching for higher aspirations. In short, he is happy but never satisfied, always keeping his eyes open for a greater opportunity which may be right around the corner.

At least this is how the former free agent acquisition from Houston viewed coming to Philadelphia when he signed a three-year contract with the Eagles.

"Philadelphia came after me, hoping that I could fill the void left by Reggie (White) and Clyde (Simmons) when they left via free agency," Fuller said. "I had some great years in Houston but was overshadowed because I was on a great defense. Plus, coming to Philadelphia gave me a chance to be closer to home."

In his first season with the Eagles, Fuller made an instant impact along the defensive front, recording a team high 9.5 quarterback sacks. He notched at least one sack in seven straight games and subsequently broke the club record of six consecutive games which was previously shared by White and Simmons.

"I credit a lot of the success my first year to (former) defensive coordinator Bud Carson and his scheme," Fuller said. "The artificial surface at Veterans Stadium helped me being a pass rusher because you're able to get a very quick first step generated when coming off the turf."

Fuller earned three consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl playing with the Eagles in 1994, 1995, and 1996.

"I was on top of the world because I'm sure the fans were saying things like, 'Their crazy for letting Reggie and Clyde go.' People were probably saying William who? What can he do? So I knew I had to prove myself and going to three Pro Bowls did just that."

Under the guidance of first-year head coach Ray Rhodes, the Eagles enjoyed one of the finest turnarounds in franchise history, posting a 10-6 mark and advancing to the Divisional Playoff round in 1995. The previous season, under Rich Kotite, the Eagles finished 7-9 and did not qualify for the playoffs.

"Heading into the 1995 season, we knew we had a talented team who could get after the passer, and we had great young guys in the secondary. Plus, Ray Rhodes was a great motivator," said Fuller, who led the NFC in sacks with 13 that season.

"I would love to tell you what he said to the team but it's probably not for publishing. But it opened up our eyes," said Fuller, recalling the 20-17 victory that will forever be remembered for the two 4th-and-1 stops of running back Emmitt Smith.

Fuller once stated after the game, about the pep talk given by Rhodes: "Ray described it as if the Dallas Cowboys didn't respect us. They were breaking into our house, taking food off our table, and victimizing our family. He used those types of analogies."

However, Fuller was not shocked that Coach (Barry) Switzer opted to roll the dice twice, going for it on fourth down in a tie ball game, having the ball on their own 29-yard line with two minutes remaining in the game.

"I wasn't surprised Switzer gambled because he had one of the greatest offensive lines ever and Emmitt Smith in the backfield," Fuller said. "As a defense, we knew we had faith in one another and just had to dig deep and stop them.

'I just couldn't believe it, after stopping them that the referees stepped in and said the play never counted. I'm like you've got to be kidding me! We all said we can do this, we can stop them again."

Fuller also has great memories of the Wild Card playoff game victory over the once-favored Detroit Lions.

"They came into our house on top of the world, and we were just all over them. They had great players like Herman Moore, but our defense shut them down completely in the first half, and to be honest, were surprised at how well we handled them," said Fuller, whose Eagles led 38-7 at halftime.

One of the keys to victory was containing Lions Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders.

"We had to play great team defense," Fuller said. "You can't totally stop Barry, so we focused on stopping the big pass play and not letting him get outside, because if he gets to the corner he is gone."

Hugh Douglas: 1995-2004, 1st Round Pick by Jets

In-hugh-101009_medium

Hugh is personally one of my favorite Eagles. He is fierce and relentless. I see Trent Cole as a Hugh Douglas 2.0. He had two stints with the Eagles, from 1998-2000 and in 2004 our NFC Championship. As a rookie with the Jets he was named DROY. After making 3 Pro-Bowls with the Jets, he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles prior the 1998 season for 2 picks. During six seasons he is third all time in Eagles sacks with 54.5, behind Reggie White and Clyde Simmons. In 2005, he was resigned by the Eagles to be thier "Good-Will Ambassador" in the FO. HE finished his career with 80 sacks, 361 tackles, and 1 INT.

Jevon "The Freak" Kearse: 1999-Present, 1st Round Pick by Titans

Nfc-g_medium

via philadelphia-eagles.net

His freakish speed and 86-inch wingspand impressed coaches just as much as his play. In his first four seasons with the Titans he was a 3-time Pro-Bowler and AP DROY. In the first month of playing, he was named Defensive Rookie of the Month. HIs rookie season he earned 14.5 sacks (led AFC) and 7 fumbles (leading NFL. He was 2nd in AP DPOY behind Warren Sapp. His next season he had 11.5 sacks and again was voted to the Pro-Bowl.  this third season he moved to right end after the Titans traded Kevin Carter. He recorded 10 sacks, 3 FF, 2 Batted passes and 36 tackles. In 2003, the Eagles signed him to a record deal at the time 8 years at 65 mil. He was a dominate force in 2004 and was one of the reasons they made it to the Super-Bowl. In 2005, although the team went 6-10, he led the team with 7.5 sacks, eight passes deflected and 3 FF. In 2006, he had a serious knee injury week 2 against the Giants. In 2007 he was benched for Juqa Parker (a former Titan). His contract was voided and he returned to the Titans till 2009 where he was benched and then released. He is currently a free-agent.

Trent "The Hunter" Cole: 2005-Present, 5th Round Pick

Eagles-trent-cole-260x300_medium

via profootballzone.com

Arguably Andy Reid's best late round gem ever is Trent Cole. Nicknamed "The Hunter" for his off-season activities, he brings that mentality to the grid-iron. He is 28 and already his fourth on the Eagles all time sack list. He is in the top ten of best pass rushers today, yet is a continuous Pro-Bowl snub. He celebrates with a signature move, pulling a bow, after every sack. Cole stepped in for Kearse's injury against the Giants. While his numbers weren't eye popping in 2006, he was very dominate and made an amazing interception return for a touchdown that season against the Giants that gave the Eagles a 14 point lead to seal the game. In 2007, he had his best year, racking up 12.5 sacks and named to the Pro-Bowl for the first time and the first time an Eagles draft pick made it to the Pro-Bowl since Clyde Simmons. He is ranked #45 on Bleacher Report's Top 50 Philadelphia Eagles of all Time http://bleacherreport.com/articles/499152-top-50-philadelphia-eagles-of-all-time/page/7.

I'm not going to put Reggie White on the poll because I believe he earns a starting position. The first poll will be the starter opposite of Reggie White. In my opinion, Cylde Simmons deserves to be a starter for his body of work. Then the top three will be candidates for the backups. Check back for the updates!
