Philadelphia Eagles Top 10 Individual Offensive Seasons (Gen X Edition

2 Brian Westbrook 2007

Following up his breakout year, Westbrook out did himself in 2007. He established a new single season team record for yards from scrimmage with 2,104 and had many football pundits referring to him as the best player in football.

The elusive and explosive running back rushed for 1,333 yards with a 4.8 yards per carry average. He was also the team's biggest threat through the air catching an astounding 90 passes for 771 yards.

Overall, he found the end zone 12 times to lead the team. Westbrook also averaged 19.8 yards returning punts when the team needed an occasional quick strike.

Both the Pro Football Writers Association and the Associated Press named him first team All-Pro. Although the wear and tear on his body has sadly limited him over the past three campaigns, that pair of spectacular seasons has established Westbrook as one of the Eagles all-time greats.

Rushing: 278-1,333 yards, 4.8 Avg, 7 TD

Receiving: 90-771 yards, 8.6 Avg, 5 TD

Scrimmage Yards: 2,104 yards, 12 TD
