Foles, Wentz, Kelce give thanks to Eagles fans

Another football team broke a long drought this season.

Days after the Eagles won the Super Bowl over the favored New England Patriots, the excitement has still not worn down for fans like Brian Culver of North Wilmington, who led the Stanley's crowd in several renditions of "Fly, Eagles, Fly".

After the parade made it's way toward the museum, parts of Broad Street opened up to foot traffic.

Of course, this is the Philadelphia Eagle fan base. The Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52. Fans young and old lined the streets as parents held their young children on their shoulders and college roommates shared beers while watching the Eagles make their way down the parade route.

Grown men were shown on ESPN and social media weeping in their midnight green jerseys, and the chant never stopped: "E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!" The Eagles should be a championship contender for years to come, assuming their extremely talented roster doesn't change too much from the free agency period. "Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super Bowl, what a game that was!" she wrote.

ESPN's way-too-early power rankings have the 49ers, who went 6-11 last season, at No. 14. Well, Pederson has already spoke to his players next year as they are now the defending Super Bowl champions at his press conference on Wednesday.

The Eagles and most citizens of Philadelphia have been on a week-long party tour that has almost demolished the city. If you were one of Philadelphia's doubters, Kelce has a message for you: "F**k you". That's exactly what they got here. He even read through the New Testament of the Bible in a three month time span. They lost their top-tier left tackle. Not only that, but they did it with a backup quarterback. Even though they were the number one seed playing at home against the sixth seed, they were underdogs. Stefen Wisniewski ain't good enough.

In an interview with WDAE 620 in Tampa, Eagles long snapper Rick Lovato said the majority of the plays run by the Eagles offense during their final 30-minute practice at U.S. Bank Stadium - on the eve of Super Bowl LII - were not in Philadelphia's playbook for the game. Wilmel Cosme, a fourth-year Case Western Reserve University student, Clevelander and lifelong Browns fan, expressed pessimism when thinking about the team's future. It's the flawless underdog story, just like a Philadelphian would want.
