Every year USA Today names their "All Joe Team" which is meant to honor guys who play and make a major contribution to their team, but have never made a Pro Bowl in their careers. Two Eagles made their list for this season.

Brent Celek, Eagles - Tough yards are his forte. According to STATS Inc., his 8.1 yards after the catch (and he had 62 receptions) was the best among all tight ends in 2011. Celek is also an effective blocker, a trait not all modern tight ends are known for.

Todd Herremans, Eagles - A starting guard his first six NFL seasons, he shifted to right tackle in 2011, a move that made him Michael Vick's blind-side bodyguard. Philadelphia's 6,386 yards were a team record.

Two guys that certainly fit the category well. Brent Celek especially had a fantastic season when you think about how little he was targeted last year and how that seemed as though it would continue this year. But for some reason, he just started to gain Michael VIck's trust and really finished with a very strong year.
