The Eagles' 5 best moments of 2010, in video

New, comments

Last week, we masochistically did the Eagles' 5 worst moments of 2010.  Today, we do the 5 best.  Let's just get right to it:

5) Shady seals the win over the Giants - Michael Vick bobbled the snap, barely got the pitch to LeSean McCoy, Osi Umenyiora juuuuuust missed swatting the ball away, and Shady did the rest to make it 5 in a row over the Giants.

4) Kolb *almost* flawless against the Falcons - With Michael Vick and Jason Peters out, Kolb put up a line of 23/29 for 326 yards, 3 TD, and a pick in a comfortable 31-17 win over the Falcons. Kolb was named the NFL Player of the Week:

3) The Nestea plunge - After going 0-3 against Dallas in 2009, including two utterly gross Eagles performances against the Cowboys to close out the season, it was great to get one in the win column against them. The most memorable play was of course DeSean Jackson's 91 yard TD catch and run on a gimpy ankle, punctuated by Jackson doing the Nestea plunge into the end zone as the Cowboys defense watched:

2A) Eat it, Landry - LaRon Landry and DeAngelo Hall tried to intimidate DeSean Jackson pre-game.  Bad idea.  The first play of the game Jackson ran right past both Landry and Hall in route to an 88 yard TD:

1) We already know what #1 is:
