Lurie remains fond of Dawkins | Philadelphia Inquirer | 12/23/2009
Jeffrey Lurie is sincere when he talks about his admiration for Brian Dawkins. "I can't wait to induct him into the Eagles' honor roll," the team's owner said. "We'll officially do it when he's retired, but there is no more obvious person." After reissuing his training-camp declaration that no Eagles player would again wear Dawkins' No. 20 jersey as long as he was the owner, Lurie said he has also found himself rooting for the Denver Broncos this season. "I don't really root AFC that much, but my attitude is I want Brian to have success as he deserves," Lurie said.

Most of Brian Dawkins' Denver Broncos teammates encountered his corner locker before meeting him. What they saw there must have been confusing.

"I’m the sure the fans will welcome him in the right way. It will be one of those memories and moments and one of those games that you will remember. That’s what it’s about."

Brian Dawkins’ homecoming game is one a great many Eagles have been looking forward to. One you circle on your calendar, as safety Quintin Mikell said.

Dawkins refuses to rehash Philly departure
"It was a very, very emotional thing, but I'm not going to hash this out, pick on scabs and all that stuff," said Dawkins, asked how long it took him to to get over leaving Philadelphia. "It took me a little bit. The Broncos have welcomed me here with open arms, and like I said earlier, I just remember all the good times in Philadelphia."

"My favorite memory of them is just the party, the celebration we had after we beat Atlanta to go to the Super Bowl (in 2004) after failing so many times before. What that celebration was for the fans and for the coaches and to see the tears flowing in the stands with the fans-because we didn't win the Super Bowl but we had fallen short to get to that point so many times-that will be something that I'll always remember."
