LeSean McCoy, Antonio Dixon Named To USA Today "All Joe Team"

Every season, the USA Today releases its team of unsung NFL players called the "All Joe team." Two Eagles made the team of Joes...

First was running back LeSean McCoy - "Brian Westbrook clone? McCoy led all backs with 78 catches to go with his first 1,000-yard rushing season." I'm not sure how "unsung" McCoy is since pretty much everyone realized how important he was last season, but I suppose the fact that he's not in the Pro Bowl allows USA Today to play the "unsung" card.

The other Eagle to make the team is one that fits the description of a "all Joe" guy perfectly. DT Antonio Dixon.

"He's come a long way since shuttling between homeless shelters as a kid. Thrust into the lineup in Week 5, Philadelphia gave up nearly 50 fewer rushing yards per game once he became a starter"

Even better, the Redskins cut Dixon because they clearly didn't see enough in him. He was one of the bright spots on the Eagles defense this past season.
