Not saying they're the "best" but the Eagles have had some great centers: Bendarik, Ringo, Wojo (both "past their prime' in Philly), Jason Kelce, Vic Lindskog (1 All Pro, 2 Championships)...

Watching Ringo on NFL Films -always a joy- I thought he was just as good in Philly as GB. To me, he never lost his quickness till maybe his last season ...

I had no idea until fairly recently that Chuck Bednarik also not only played - but excelled at - C during his time in Philly.

That's kind of Bednarik's "Claim to Fame"... that he was the "Last of the sixty minute men" as he played both offense and defense in the Eagles Championship season of 1960. I believe Concrete Charlie played 58+ minutes in that game.
