LeSean McCoy, Evan Mathis, Jason Peters All Named First-Team All-Pro's

Section 215-A Philadelphia City Sports Blog

Eagles left-guard Evan Mathis may have been the biggest Pro-Bowl snub in NFL, but when today’s AP NFL All-Pro team was announced, Mathis wasn’t snubbed.


Mathis is an All-Pro for the first time in his career, and after two straight elite seasons, was certainly a deserving candidate. Also the fact that he is one of the most funny players Philadelphia has seen in a long time, makes me like him a little bit more.

ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio said this afternoon on ESPN’s NFL Insiders, that Eagles director of public relations Derek Boyko, told him that Mathis, “was a very happy young man,” after hearing that he was named an All-Pro.

Peters is an All-Pro for the second time in three years, but after tearing his Achilles twice last season, the idea that Peters is both a Pro-Bowl starter and first-team All-Pro, is pretty amazing.  Peters said this after being selected to the Pro-Bowl, and I’m sure he has a similar reaction after being named an All-Pro.

Just one day after being named the NFC offensive player of the month, LeSean McCoy was able to react to news that he was also named an All-Pro, after what was the greatest season ever by an Eagles running-back.

A special day to be an Eagles fan, in what has been a special year for the “Birds”.  Hopefully the magic continues tomorrow night.
