OH MY GOD JASON KELCE JUST DELIVERED THE MOST INCREDIBLE SPEECH I’VE EVER HEARD.
All while dressed in fantastic clothing.
If you love the Eagles, let me get a hell yeah!
IF YOU LOVE THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES, LET ME GET A HELL YEAH!
I’m going to take a second to talk to you about underdogs. I know Lane [Johnson] and Chris [Long] just talked about this, but I don’t think it’s been beat home enough.
Howie Roseman, a few years ago, was relinquished of all control, pretty much, in this organization. He was put in the side ... HEY, HEY ... he was put in the side of the building, where I didn’t see him for over a year. Two years ago, when they made a decision, he came out of there a different man. He came out of there with a purpose and a drive to to make this possible! And I saw a different Howie Roseman! An underdog!
Doug Pederson. When Doug Pederson was hired, he was rated as the worst coaching hire by a lot of freaking analysts in the media. This past offseason, SOME CLOWN NAMED MIKE LOMBARDI TOLD HIM HE WAS THE LEAST QUALIFIED HEAD COACH IN THE NFL! You saw a terrific Doug Pederson! A man who went for it on fourth and down, IN THE SUPER BOWL, WITH A TRICK PLAY! HE WASN’T PLAYING FOR JUST MEDIOCRE, HE WAS PLAYING FOR A SUPER BOWL!
AND IT DON’T STOP WITH HIM! IT DOES NOT STOP WITH HIM!
Jason Peters was told he was too old! That he didn’t have it anymore. Before he got hurt, he was the best freaking tackle in the NFL.
Big V was told he didn’t have it!
Stefen Wisniewski ain’t good enough!
Jason Kelce’s too small!
Lane Johnson can’t lay off the juice!
Brandon Brooks has anxiety!
Carson Wentz didn’t go to a Division I school!
Nick Foles don’t got it!
Corey Clement’s too slow!
LeGarrette Blount aint got it anymore!
Jay Ajayi can’t stay healthy!
Torrey Smith can’t catch!
Nelson Agholor can’t catch!
Zach Ertz can’t block!
Brent Celek’s too old!
Brandon Graham was drafted too high!
Vinny Curry ain’t got it!
Beau Allen can’t fit the scheme!
Mychal Kendricks can’t fit the scheme!
Nigel Bradham can’t catch!
Jalen Mills can’t cover!
Patrick Robinson can’t cover!
IT’S THE WHOLE! TEAM!
IT’S THE WHOLE TEAM!
This entire organization, with a bunch of driven men, to accomplish something.
We were a bunch of underdogs. And you know what underdogs is? It’s a hungry dog.
And Jeff Stoutland has had this in the building for five years. It’s a quote in the o-line room that that’s stood on the wall for the last five years. “Hungry dogs run faster.” THAT’S THIS TEAM!
THE BOTTOM LINE IS: WE WANTED IT MORE!
All the players, all the coaches, the front office, Jeffrey Lurie, nobody wanted it more!
And that’s why we’re up here today. And that’s why we’re the first team in Eagles history to hold that freaking trophy!
And you know who the biggest underdog is? It’s y’all, Philadelphia. For 52 years, y’all have been waiting for this. You want to talk about underdogs? You want to talk about a HUNGRY DOG?
FOR 52 YEARS, YOU HAVE BEEN STARVED OF THIS CHAMPIONSHIP!
EVERYBODY WONDERS WHY WE’RE SO MEAN. EVERBODY WONDERS WHY THE PHILADELPHIA [censored]
NO ONE WANTED US! NO ONE LIKED THIS TEAM! NO ONE LIKED THIS TEAM TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL AND NOBODY LIKED OUR FANS!
Here’s some more greatness from Kelce.
Sign this man to a life-time contract, Eagles.
