Jason Kelce Gives Passionate Speech at Eagles' Super Bowl Parade

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistFebruary 8, 2018

Jason Kelce stole the show at Thursday's parade to celebrate the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl win.

Dressed in attire fit for the annual Mummers Parade held on New Year's Day, the fiery center rode a bicycle and forced a local affiliate to cut its feed by singing a melody with foul language.

Later in the day, he fired up fans with an instant-classic speech.

After imploring fans to give him a "hell yeah" a la Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kelce said the organization put general manager Howie Roseman "in a side of the building where I didn't see him for over a year." He then called out analysts who criticized the team for hiring head coach Doug Pederson.

There was no stopping him from there. As the crowd shouted "What?"—another Austin promo staple—Kelce rattled off perceived flaws for most of his teammates.  

"Everybody wanted it more," Kelce said, "and that's why we're up here today. And that's why we're the first team in Eagles history to hold that fricking [Vince Lombardi] trophy."  

The Eagles embraced their underdog role and proved all the skeptics wrong. And that's the bottom line, 'cause Kelce said so.
