Doug Pederson raises Eagles Super Bowl flag at NFL Films headquarters

Perks of being the champs.

NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was invited to NFL Films headquarters in Mount Laurel, New Jersey earlier this week to raise an Eagles flag in honor of the team’s Super Bowl win.

As former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski explained, NFL Films has a tradition of flying the flag of the current league champions.

“Thank you,” said Pederson in front of a small crowd of fans. “First of all, just being here at this building, and NFL Films, and what it means to the league and the history, and to be able to do this today, you know, not only for the Philadelphia Eagles, but for obviously the fans. I mean, people have been waiting for this for 52 years. For me, it’s all about the stories that I’ve heard. From the little kids, to their parents, to the grandparents, to the great grandparents. And this is what it represents today, and I’m so proud to be able to do this.”

You can watch the flag raising ceremony in the videos below.

The truth is that I’ll never tire of writing stories like this one (or this one, or this one) that serve to remind everyone that the Eagles are Super Bowl champs. It’s been a fun part of covering the team in their post-Super Bowl glory.

Pederson didn’t just show up to NFL Films to raise the flag. He also did some film breakdown work with Jaws and Brian Baldinger.

This video features a fun conversation about the Philly Special and what went into it.

And here’s Doug going through a play on the whiteboard.

Long live Doug.
