Eagles’ All-Time Passing TD Leaders
The Philadelphia Eagles have been an NFL franchise since 1933, and have won three championships. They have not, however, won a Super Bowl, going 0 for 2 so far. But the Eagles are almost always competitive. And they surely have always had great quarterback play. Here is a short list of the Eagles’ all-time leaders in passing touchdowns to date:
Donovan McNabb (216)—Donovan McNabb played for the Eagles from 1999 to 2009, and he led them to their last Super Bowl appearance, after the 2004 season. McNabb ranks first in team history with 216 touchdown passes, and his best season was that 2004 campaign. That year, McNabb threw for 3875 yards, with a career high 31 touchdown passes and just 8 interceptions.
Ron Jaworski (175)—Ron Jaworski is currently a commentator in the Monday Night Football booth, and he was a great QB for the Eagles for many years. Jaworski played for Philly from 1977 to 1986, and he ranks second on franchise history with 175 TD passes. Jaworski’s best season was 1980, when the Eagles went to the Super Bowl, as he had career best numbers in passing yards (3529) and passing touchdowns (27), with 12 picks.
Randall Cunningham (150)—Randall Cunningham played for the Eagles from 1985 to 1995, and he ranks third in Eagles’ history with 150 touchdown passes. Cunningham had a career high 34 TD passes with the Vikings in 1998, but his best season for the Eagles was 1990, the last of three straight years that Cunningham made the Pro Bowl with the Eagles. That year, Cunningham threw for 3466 yards with 30 TDs and 13 interceptions.
Norm Snead (111)—Norm Snead played for Philadelphia from 1964 to 1970, and he ranks fourth in Eagles’ history with 111 TD passes. Snead had arguably his best season with Philly in 1967, when he posted career highs in passing yards (3399) and touchdown passes (29), despite 24 picks.
Tommy Thompson (90)—Tommy Thompson played for the Eagles most of his career, from 1941 to 1950, and he ranks fifth in franchise history with 90 touchdown passes.
