Eagles have NFL's best offensive line, according to Pro Football Focus

Eagles have NFL's best offensive line, according to Pro Football Focus

Thanks to Lane Johnson’s suspension and a few injuries, the Eagles' offensive line unit wasn’t what most expected it to be in 2016. Should things go according to plan on the O-line in 2017, expectations are high. For Pro Football Focus, they’re as high as it gets.

PFF ranked the Eagles’ O-line No. 1 in the entire league heading into this season, citing the fact that it has the “fewest holes.”

Center Jason Kelce is considered their biggest question mark, but even though his abilities have faded a bit with age, he hasn’t missed a snap in two seasons. That has to count for something.

Allen Barbre and second-year Eagle Brandon Brooks, who allowed just one sack last season, complete the line’s interior. Then, of course, the tackle tandem of Jason Peters and Lane Johnson is hard to beat. PFF says Johnson, when on the field, was the best right tackle last season. Johnson would agree.

Even beyond the first-team unit, the Eagles have experience. Halapoulivaati Vaitai and Isaac Seumalo both saw unexpected snaps as rookies last season because of the reshuffling. That should help moving forward.

Rounding out PFF’s top three are the Browns and Steelers. Cleveland boosted its corps by signing J.C. Tretter and Kevin Zeitler in free agency. The Steelers had the best unit during the second half of last season.

More notably for Eagles fans, the Cowboys come in at No. 9 in PFF’s rankings after owning one of the league’s best O-lines in recent years. Ronald Leary and Doug Free are gone, and La’el Collins’ move to right tackle is not a sure bet for success.

Washington sits two slots below at No. 11. PFF considers continuity the 'Skins' greatest strength — they return all five O-line starters from last season and four of five from 2015.

And the Giants, well, it’ll take some scrolling to reach their spot on the list: No. 28. Left tackle Ereck Flowers was the worst among his position in pressures allowed as a rookie. Eli Manning could be in for a busy season.

Brandon Brooks fulfills promise, attends loyal fan's wedding

Brandon Brooks fulfills promise, attends loyal fan's wedding

Remember earlier this week when Brandon Brooks tweeted an invite he received to a random fan's wedding and then said he would go?

Of course you do because you read this website all day, every day. Duh.

Anyway, the random fan's wedding took place on Saturday afternoon and, well, well, well... the gigantic Eagles offensive lineman followed through on his promise.

Check this out:

Ok, that's really cool.

Of course, the connection here is the groom is a Miami (Ohio) alum and that's where Brooks also attended college before becoming an NFL lineman.

Twitter can really work wonders sometime.

The lesson here, kiddos: always shoot for the stars because you never know what will happen. You could have a Philly athlete show up at your graduation or quinceañera or something.

Unfortunately, former Phillies great Sal Fasano is not on Twitter. You're gonna have to use snail mail if you want to invite him to your housewarming party.

Eagles lineman to attend random fan's wedding

Well, if you are a die-hard Eagles fan who attended Miami University in Ohio, you’re in luck because Brandon Brooks would love to join you and your soon-to-be spouse on your wedding day.

All you need to do is send a letter.

This morning, Brooks tweeted out a letter he received from fellow Miami University graduates, Geoffrey Lane and his bride-to-be Marni Goldberg, inviting him to their wedding tomorrow afternoon.

Geoffrey took a shot in the dark trying to bring a celebrity to his wedding. Low risk, high reward situation.

It paid off as Brooks accepted the blind-date style invitation.

You have to wonder what Brooks might get the newlyweds as a gift. Perhaps a midnight-green toaster.

This isn’t the first time an Eagles player made someone’s day special. This past season rookie QB Carson Wentz was tasked to complete a fan’s quiz after losing two straight games and leading into a week-14 game against the Bengals. That game would be an embarrassing 32-14 loss

Luckily for Wentz, the five-question test from this young fan did not ask about his receiving corps or his struggles adjusting to the NFL.

Wentz responded via twitter and passed with flying colors.
