When he’s not busy with his responsibilities as an accounting manager at NRG Energy, Inc., Andrew Muc enjoys a range of hobbies, including watching sports. A resident of Pennsylvania, Andrew Muc particularly enjoys cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Philadelphia Eagles have won four championships over their more than eight and half decades in the NFL. During this time, a number of outstanding players have taken the field for the team. While disagreement exists on the exact order, experts consistently rank the following three players as the best in Eagles history.

1. Chuck Bednarik. This nine-time All-Pro developed a reputation as both a punishing linebacker and a formidable center over his 14-year career with the Eagles. Memorably, he made the tackle that secured the 1960 championship for the team.

2. Steve Van Buren. The NFL’s leader in both rushing and scoring upon his retirement, Steve Van Buren was a key member of the Eagles’ 1948 and 1949 title-winning teams. His 205 yards in a 1949 game against the Steelers still ranks second in franchise history.

3. Reggie White. Nicknamed the “Minister of Defense,” Reggie White is considered by some to be the greatest defensive end in the history of the NFL. His many accolades include three Defensive Player of the Year awards and nine selections as a First-Team All-Pro.
