MVP: Jalen Hurts
The player who clearly exuded a zero-to-hero mentality and completely flipped from his previous season is Jalen Hurts. Hurts took this team to the next level this season and made them unstoppable for much of the season. If the NFL doesn’t recognize his talent and the way he elevated this team on and off the field, Philadelphia fans always will.
OPOY: AJ Brown
Eagles fans were excited about this one since the NFL Draft when it was announced. Since Week 1, A.J. Brown has been a crucial part of the Eagles’ success. He wasn’t perfect this season (though he was pretty close to it) but he and DeVonta Smith gave the team a fierce pair of wide receivers – something the team hasn’t had in a while.
DPOY: Haason Reddick
The Temple product came back to Philly and the rest is history. Reddick has been an important piece in the success of the Eagles defense. He delivered consistency (when not dropped back in coverage) and kept the Eagles thriving all season long.
OROY: Britain Covey
I think Covey has a lot to show, but he’s been pretty helpful where needed for the Eagles. To be honest, he’s got a lot of room for improvement but he still provided a boost to the team.
DROY: Jordan Davis
What a guy. It’s almost too obvious that Davis is the defensive rookie of the year for the Eagles. Another big-bodied guy who gave the Eagles much-needed support on offense. I mean, just check this insane stat about Davis’ stat on the field this season.
UNSUNG HERO: T.J. Edwards
Talk about a rock on defense. T.J. Edwards has a combined 149 tackles, 59 assists and two tackles on the season. When the defense struggled and wasn’t aggressive enough, Edwards was there. The Eagles defense has been steady with him as he continues to dominate.
BEST DRESSED: DeVonta Smith
This speaks for itself – Smitty got style. I don’t know where he gets his sense of style but the man has GOT to be a model after he hangs up the cleats. Leaving his last regular season game day fit here for your viewing pleasure.
MOST TALENTED: Jordan Mailata
Originating from Stoutland University, Mailata is a force to be reckoned with at left tackle. He’s been a great help to the o-line all season, but one special talent he has that we found this season? His singing.
I’m not ashamed to say that I’m STILL not over his riff in “White Christmas” on the “A Philly Special Christmas” album.
MOST RELIABLE: Jake Elliott
Jake Elliott is the kicker and player you need. He’s a reliable kicker and will be there to help the Eagles get ahead in some regard 99% of the time. I’ve gotta give Elliott his flowers for being the most reliable player on the field this season.
VET OF THE YEAR: Lane Johnson
This man has been an unstoppable force for the Eagles offensive line. He set a record for most consecutive pass plays without allowing a sack (928 snaps in 27 games). When he went down with an injury, his absence was felt.
MOST LOVED FOR LIFE: Jason Kelce
Everything about Jason Kelce is such an icon. From his clothing line, the Christmas album, his singing the national anthem and being such a fun spirit during the Phillies playoff run – Kelce will always be that man.
COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Brandon Graham
The man is in his 30s still kicking booty every season. Last season, he suffered a torn ACL. But now, he came back and dominated with 43 combined tackles and 11 sacks. If that doesn’t say major comeback, I don’t know what does. The man is a beast, not to mention, an incredible Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee.
FAN-FAVORITE PLAYER OF THE SEASON: Jason Kelce & Jalen Hurts
I think this speaks for itself. Two amazing players all season long.
HONORARY PHILADELPHIAN: Nick Sirianni
This award is given to the person in the Eagles organization who showed time and time again that his short temper, passion and love for the city make him the perfect fit here. That man is Nick Sirianni.
Who would you give an award to from this historic Eagles season? Let me know!
