When was the last time the Eagles had such a solid *pair* of safties?

Maybe that would be Dawk and Quintin Mikell. Mikell was undrafted but made a pro bowl appearance.

Wes Hopkins played with "dirty" Waters during the Buddy Ryan era. Wes made a pro bowl. Waters, undrafted out of Cheney, was a tough competitor known for leading with his helmet. Who knows how many concussions he might have had. The game was very different then. Sadly all of those hits might have cost him his life--God rest his soul.

Jenkins and Thurmond look great. For some reason though, I don't look at them as S but as DBs. When I think of a S, I think of players like Dawk and Wes.

True, weren't they both CBs in college?

The days of the box safety are mostly dead.
