With Avengers Endgame, one of the most anticipated movies this century, coming out on Friday, I got to thinking about what recent Eagles players/coaches and their avengers counterparts. Take a look at the comparisons, and let us know what you think.
Carson Wentz | Captain America
This one is pretty basic, both are the leaders of their teams, and fight for what is right, no matter the consequences.
Nick Foles | Thor
Both are unexpected leaders, and both well-known for their "hammers".
Nelson Agholor | Black Panther
If Black Panther was a football player, I would play him in the slot. Quick, agile, and understands how to attack a defense - he would make a great inside WR. That being said, this closely aligns with Nelly.
Jason Kelce | Bruce Banner (aka Hulk)
If this is surprising, read the explanation first. Banner is an extremely smart individual. When he gets angry, he turns green and smashes anything in his way. Enter - Jason Kelce. Kelce is a smart man, as he has to be to understand the different defensive alignments and make calls to his team mates. When the ball is snapped, or he's behind a mic - he turns green.
Howie Roseman | Dr. Strange
Howie is always making the magic happen.
Bradley Cooper | Rocket Racoon
Bradley Cooper is a well-known big time Birds fan, and plays the voice of Rocket Racoon. Stretching here a bit, but it fits.
Desean Jackson | Nebula
It was no secret that whenever D-Jax played against the Eagles, he wanted to prove that he should never have been traded. Similarly, Nebula minced no words about trying to end her sister. Now, both have put aside their differences and are fighting for a common goal.
Malcolm Jenkins | Iron Man
Jenkins is a fancy guy, kind of like Iron Man, and despite his age continues to play at a high level.
