Brian Dawkins: Philly has set bar for future NFL drafts

Brian Dawkins: Philly has set bar for future NFL drafts

Naturally Philly fans have gotten attention for booing during the 2017 NFL draft.

Just ask Roger Goodell and Drew Pearson.

Anything else would have been disappointing. 

But Eagles fans made as much if not more noise on Benjamin Franklin Parkway when the Birds picked. Their renditions of the Eagles fight song have been nothing short of fantastic. And, knock on wood, the fans have also behaved themselves.

So when Brian Dawkins followed Brian Westbook and took the podium before the start of Day 3 — after being introduced by another former Eagle, Troy Vincent — Dawk gave the fans well-deserved props. 

"Yeeaaah baaabby!!!" he bellowed (watch video below). "Hey, listen. Philadelphia, you ought to be proud of yourselves. You are representing right now. You have the bar of what the draft is supposed to be like. That's how you do it. That's how we do it. All right? Hey .. and let all the haters hate. Don't worry about the haters. Don't worry about the haters. Be you. Be you. If you want to do what you do, you do what you do."

Then, of course, he led another rendition of the fight song. 

Before Dawkins' brief speech, Westbrook had a message for Pearson and any Cowboys fans.

"I just want to say two things," Westbrook said. "First of all, I love you guys. Second of all, if anybody from Dallas steps to this doggone podium in my city, in my town -- we're going to give them a true Philadelphia welcome. Enjoy your day."

Who wouldn't want Embiid's face depicted in their hair? After all, the playoff push is heating up, so you've got to look ready.

Over 100 barbers from the Delaware Valley were expected on hand for the evening and pregame networking event, which was all presented by Maestro's Classic.

Don't be surprised if the Embiid cut catches on throughout the city.

No doubt, you'll be the coolest kid at school (or work).

Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers


Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers

Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.

The newest member of the Eagles' cornerback crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.

If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:

When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.

It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.

His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]
