Philadelphia Eagles legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Brian Dawkins got some love via an unusual mention by the NFL.
Ladies and gentlemen, Brian Dawkins is the man, but you already know that. As the NFL continues to revel in its 100th season of existence, the celebration of some of the best players and moments in league history continues. The Philadelphia Eagles and their fans had to have cracked a smile when seven of the best moments in team history were a part of the 100 greatest NFL moments ever.
Well, it would be almost impossible to tell the NFL’s story without bringing up the Eagles, and you can’t mention them without bringing up the man who’s arguably the most beloved ‘Bird’ of all time, the aforementioned Brian Dawkins.

The NFL began another countdown recently, one that honors the greatest characters in league history. We can state two things definitively. Deion Sanders and Terrell Owens will make an appearance somewhere, and ‘Dawk’ takes his rightful place as on the NFL legends mentioned on this countdown.
He cracks the list at number 93. That seems a little low, but hey, it is what it is. Then again, a man who had two lockers, one for himself and one for his alter ego (well, one of his alter egos), has to be a little higher on the countdown. It’s hard to find an expert on the subject, but that’s probably the only time that’s happened.
Congratulations to Mr. Dawkins, aka ‘B Dawk’ aka ‘Weapon X’ aka ‘The Wolverine’ or whatever he’s being called these days.
