Brent Celek showing durability for the Eagles

Jim McIsaac

Brent Celek has proved he'll be there every week for the Philadelphia Eagles.

In a year mostly filled with disappointment, the Philadelphia Eagles' tight end Brent Celek has been of the few bright spots for the team and its fans.

Celek is as reliable as they come, playing every game this season and, as columnist Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com points out, every year.

The tight end hasn't missed a game in either his professional or his college career. In fact, the streak dates back even longer than that, according to Frank. Celek last missed a game when he injured his shoulder in the sixth grade.

The Eagles are going through another tough season, posting a 3-5 record. Talk has begun to intensify about whether Michael Vick is the long-term answer at quarterback and if Andy Reid will be here by season's end.

Celek hasn't had a brilliant season by any measure, but he's at least been on the field and productive. All of that is to say: he hasn't been part of the problem.

In Philadelphia, that's all you can ask for at the moment.
