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.
