Kansas City Chiefs: Why Albert Wilson will have a breakout year in 2015

The Philadelphia Eagles all-time best quarterbacks

While compiling this list I found myself reminiscing about my childhood and watching Donovan McNabb lead the Philadelphia Eagles to four consecutive NFC Conference Championship games.
