It is about impossible to truly appreciate offensive linemen as much as they deserve it. Those guys battle on every snap and their bodies take a real pounding. Shady McCoy can duck out of bounds. Nick Foles can slide. 2012 Jeremy Maclin can try to dig a hole to hide from DBs (but certainly not 2014 Mac…he’s a tough guy). OL pound defenders on every play. There is no hiding. Hit or be hit. Heck, hit and get hit anyway.
So let’s take a couple of minutes to enjoy the power, athleticism and dare I say…beauty…of Jason Peters and Evan Mathis in action. Has the left side of the Eagles O-line ever been better?
