Who are some of the top players that have helped the Philadelphia Eagles be one of the most successful NFL teams of the 21st century?
When the Philadelphia Eagles ended the 2017 season with their franchise’s first-ever Super Bowl win, it was not something that many saw coming. But looking back on it, the Eagles’ championship victory shouldn’t have been that much of a surprise given how successful the organization has been over the last 18 years.
From 2000-18, only the Green Bay Packers have won more regular season games than Philadelphia in the NFC. But during this same time period, no other team in the NFC has more playoff victories than the Eagles.
Since the 2000 season, Philadelphia has won eight NFC East division titles, advanced to a total of six NFC Championships and two Super Bowls and only finished with a losing record four times.
The Eagles have seemed to have a chance for success during each and every season that has taken place in the 21st century. Helping Philadelphia stay competitive over the last two decades has been a number of talented players.
One of the Eagles’ top contributors has already been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and it’s possible that more of their players from this era may be immortalized in the not-too-distant future.
So who are the best of the best from the 21st century? Who are the top seven players to suit up for Philadelphia since the 2000 season? Let’s take a look.
