Philadelphia Eagles Top 10 Individual Offensive Seasons (Gen X Edition) Part 5 of a 10 Part Series
After sharing backfield duties for his first four seasons, Brian Westbrook was finally handed the featured back role in 2006. He did not disappoint as he turned in the team's fourth highest yards from scrimmage totals (1,916) in team history.
With Donovan McNabb being lost to a knee injury, Westbrook was forced to play the lead role and came up big down the stretch. The Eagles rode Westy and back-up QB Jeff Garcia to five wins in the last six games to capture the NFC Eastern Division crown.
For the season, Westbrook accumulated 1,217 yards rushing at a hefty 5.1 yards a pop. He also hauled in 77 passes totaling 699 yards, while racking up 11 TD's.
