Best Nicknames in Eagles History

I wanted to do a best nicknames piece on each of the teams in Philly, and I thought I’d start with the Eagles. While there should be no shortage of Phillies and Sixers to choose from, there really aren’t that many great Eagle nicknames. There are a few, however. Here’s the 8 best ones I could think of. Do you have any to add to this list?

  1. “Concrete Charlie” Chuck Bednarik
  2. “The Polish Rifle” Ron Jaworski
  3. Earl “Greasy” Neale
  4. Andre “Dirty” Waters
  5. “FredEx” Freddie Mitchell
  6. “Toast” Izel Jenkins (right)
  7. “The Minister of Defense” Reggie White
  8. Marion “Swamp Fox” Campbell
