Philadelphia!

If you love the Eagles let me get a hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
If you love the Philadelphia Eagles, let me get a hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)

I’m gonna take a second and talk to you about underdogs. I know Lane and Chris just talked about this, but I don’t think it’s been beat home long enough.

Howie Roseman, a few years ago, was relinquished of all control, pretty much, in this organization. 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 the purpose and the drive to make this possible.

And I saw a different Howie Roseman. An underdog.

Doug Pederson. When Doug Peterson was hired, he was rated as the worst coaching hire by a lot of freaking analysts out there in the media. (Boooooo!) This offseason, some clown named Mike Lombardi told him he was the least qualified head coach in the NFL. But you saw a driven Doug Pederson, a man who went for it on 4th and Down, who went for it on 4th and down in the Super Bowl, with a trick play. He wasn’t playing just to go 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, didn’t have it any more. Before he got hurt, he was the best freakin tackle in the whole NFL. Steven Wisniewksi was told he didn’t have it. 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. Zack Ertz can’t block. Brent Celek’s too old. Brandon Grahm was drafted too high. Vinny Curry aint 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! (losing voice) It’s the whole team!

This entire organization was a bunch of men driven to accomplish something. You’re a bunch of underdogs!
And you know what an underdog is? It’s a hungry dog. And Jeff Stoutland has had this in our building for five years. It’s a quote in the O-line room that has stood on the wall for the past five years. Hungry dogs run faster!

And that’s this team. Bottom line is, we wanted it more. All the players, all the coaches, the front office, Jeffrey Lurie. Everybody wanted it more.

And that’s why we’re up here today. And that’s why we’re the fist team in Eagles history to hold that freakin trophy.

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 underdog? You want to talk about a hungry dog? For 52 years, you‘ve been starved of this championship.

Everybody wonders why we’re so mean. Everybody wonders why the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t the nicest fans Well, if I don’t eat breakfast I’m fucking pretty mean too.

No one wanted us. No one liked this team. No analysts liked this team to win the Super Bowl, and nobody likes our fans. To all those people who counted us out, to all everybody who said we couldn’t get it done — what my man Jay Ajayi just said — fuck ‘em!

And you know what, I just heard one of the best chant this past day. And it’s one of my favorites and it’s new and I hope y’all learn it. And I’m about to drop it right now.

(to the tune of Oh My Darling, Clementine)
