Dawkins and Samuel Make Pro Bowl

Tuesday, December 16, 2008 ·

Well at least we will be seeing two Eagles playing at in February if all else fails. Blockbuster signing Asante Samuel and life-time Eagle Brian Dawkins were elected to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii come Feb. 8 the Eagles website reported.

Both players made it last year, Samuel with the Patriots. It is Samuel's 2nd trip to Hawaii and Dawkins' 7th. Dawkins has another milestone he can add to his list this year. He first tied Eric Allen for career interceptions on the team, then he surpassed Harold Carmichael for all time games played with the Eagles, and now he tied Reggie White for second with Pro Bowl appearances. He is just one shy of tying Chuck Bednarick's total of 8.

Samuel was signed before the season to create turnovers and make big plays. He has done just that, intercepting 4 passes and knocking down 20. He also brought an interception back 50 yards for a TD versus Cleveland yesterday. Dawkins made his presence known in a different light, racking up 65 tackles so far, forcing 4 fumbles, and notching 2 sacks. He also has one interception, the record setter a few weeks ago.

Bot players were definitely worthy of the honor. Dawkins had a horrible start, being questioned whether or not his age was a factor. He shut up the critics after his poor game versus Dallas to help shut down Pittsburgh. His most memorable play was when he abused Ben Rothleisberger after leaping over a lineman to knock the ball out of Big Ben's hands.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
