Professional Bowl snubs? The Eagles have a number of

The NFL introduced the Professional Bowl rosters on Wednesday night time and the Philadelphia Eagles, who’ve a league-best 13-1 document, lead the league with eight alternatives to the annual all-star sport. The Birds additionally had 9 gamers listed as Professional Bowl alternates however…let’s be critical, we all know a few of them ought to’ve made the actual roster too. Now, I’m positive all of us hope that not one of the Eagles might be enjoying within the Professional Bowl Video games on account of a special, extra necessary, engagement in February, however righteous anger waits for no Tremendous Bowl!

The primary, and most blatant, snub for Philadelphia is star defensive sort out Javon Hargrave. He was the main fan vote-getter at DT within the NFC, and of the three Eagles that led their place with fan voting (QB Jalen Hurts, C Jason Kelce), he was the one one to not make the group.

In reality, the opposite three defensive linemen to steer in fan voting (DE Myles Garrett, DE Nick Bosa, and DT Quinnen Williams) all made the group too. What the hell did Hargrave do to the gamers and coaches to not earn the Professional Bowl nod?!?

On the season, Hargrave has 49 tackles (30 solo), 9 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, one cross defended, one compelled fumble, and two fumble recoveries. His sack complete is tied for No. 12 within the league and is the highest quantity for an NFC defensive sort out. He was a Professional Bowler final season and, by nearly each doable metric, he’s having a greater season this 12 months.

The Eagles had three offensive linemen make the Professional Bowl, however you would make a fairly good argument that Isaac Seumalo ought to make it 80% of the beginning o-line in Las Vegas. He’s a street grader when the Birds run the ball and he has helped preserve Hurts clear on passing performs too. He could also be a sufferer of enjoying on TOO GOOD of an offensive line and somebody needed to be disregarded.

Each Hargrave and Seumalo are Professional Bowl alternates, so they may fairly simply discover their approach onto the total roster, however one participant who wasn’t even named an alternate is T.J. Edwards. The fourth 12 months inside linebacker is having a monster season and it looks like no person has even seen!

Edwards has 124 tackles (73 solo), eight tackles for loss, two sacks, one fumble restoration, and 7 passes defended this season. He’s tied for No. 8 within the NFL in complete tackles and solely three linebackers have extra passes defended than he does.

With 17 gamers incomes some type of Professional Bowl honors for Philadelphia this 12 months, I suppose that one deserving participant lacking out is affordable, however that doesn’t imply I gained’t yell about it on the web.
