Believe it or not, the Philadelphia Eagles defense is loaded with talent.

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you’re pretty well aware that the days of the feared Jim Johnson defenses are long gone in the City of Brotherly Love. This team hasn’t had a guy like Brian Dawkins roaming the defensive backfield and terrorizing opposing offenses in quite some time (no disrespect is intended to Malcolm Jenkins).

All hope is not lost as Philly enters 2021 with an underrated defense. Led by All-Pro defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, the Birds are a lot more talented than most understand.
