Ex Eagles scout and current NFL.com list maker Daniel Jeremiah ranked his top 10 "duos" in the NFL this week. He picks pairs on both sides of the ball and at a bunch of different positions. The Eagles got one duo on the list, their starting defensive ends, Trent Cole & Jason Babin.
If you love an attacking brand of football, there is nothing prettier than watching these two guys crouch down in their four-point stances and explode off the line of scrimmage. They are both polished pass rushers and pursue the quarterback with a relentless passion. They combined for 29 sacks last season.
I don't think it's that controversial to say that these guys formed the best pass rushing pair of defensive ends in the NFL last season. Now, if they both played the run like Trent Cole does... they'd be the best pair of DEs period.
