Three Eagles Make Football Outsiders All Pro Team

Football Outsiders released their version of the All Pro team that they say, unlike the AP All Pro squad, ignores the reputation of players and focuses solely on their production. The AP team included two Eagles, LeSean McCoy and Jason Peters, the FO team also has those two on it but includes one more Eagle.

Here's what they had to say.

RB: LeSean McCoy, Eagles
McCoy led the NFL in rushing value according to DYAR, and moreover, he did it despite turmoil along most of the Philadelphia offensive line. We try to estimate how much rushing yardage can be attributed to offensive line blocking as opposed to the running backs with a stat called Adjusted Line Yards. Philadelphia was just 26th in ALY, but Philadelphia was second in Second Level Yards per carry (yards gained 5-10 yards from the line of scrimmage) and fourth in Open Field Yards per carry (yards gained 11-plus yards from the line of scrimmage).

LT: Jason Peters, Eagles
The one bright spot on the Eagles' offensive line. FO's J.J. Cooper tracked every sack in the NFL this year and found only one for which a Peters blown block was directly responsible. In addition, LeSean McCoy had his best rushing success running around left end.

DT: Cullen Jenkins, Eagles
Jenkins' average tackle on a running play came after a gain of just 0.7 yards, the best figure in the league. He also added 5.5 sacks.
