Eric Allen
There have been many great defensive stars for the Philadelphia Eagles through the years.  Perhaps one of their quickest was Eric Allen, who was a constant threat to intercept any football thrown in his vicinity.


Eric Allen was an impact player almost immediately in the NFL.  In his first eight years as a professional, Allen was named to the Pro Bowl six times and despite being a Cornerback, became a Sports Centre staple.  In 1993, Eric Allen had six picks, four of which he returned for touchdowns.

    An anti-establishment star before anyone really knew what that was; Sputnik Monroe was considered to be the most interesting character of the Memphis territory, which may say it all! Monroe was surly, a heavy drinker, and a unique looking figure with his gruff exterior and shock of white hair down the middle of his head. Monroe would win a series…
