Eagles finally unveil Super Bowl championship banner at the Linc

Eagles finally unveil Super Bowl championship banner at the Linc

The moment the scoreboard clock in Minnesota hit zero. Seeing them hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy above their heads. When they rode the floats down Broad Street to the art museum amid a flurry of confetti and flying beer cans. The first glimpse of the blinged-out rings on their fingers.

The Eagles winning the Super Bowl has lead to dozens of firsts for Birds fans to drink in and cherish.

Thursday night’s NFL opener against the Atlanta Falcons in South Philly provided more.

Birds fans waited their entire lives for this moment, so a weather delay wouldn't stop the party.

After some severe weather in the South Philly stadium complex area forced the game to be delayed by about a 50 minutes, the Birds finally took the field as defending Super Bowl champions for the first time in franchise history.

The organization also finally unveiled that most-coveted Super Bowl champions banner that fans have been waiting patiently for at the top of Lincoln Financial Field. It looks beautiful in its new home.

The victory ceremony got underway around 8:45 p.m. with Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins kicking things off and brining out owner Jeff Lurie with the Lombardi trophy. A raucous version of the Eagles' fight song came next and the banner was finally unveiled up in the rafters.

There was also a gigantic, oversized Lombardi trophy at the middle of the field for good measure.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
