Jason Kelce goes all out for Eagles' parade

The Philadelphia Eagles center went for it, dressed in a mostly green Aladdin-like costume and delivering arguably the most memorable Super Bowl parade speech in history.

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce delivered one of the greatest Super Bowl parade speeches ever, noting nearly every single instance in which a player, coach, or front office member was slighted or taken for granted.

"This entire organization was a bunch of driven men to accomplish something. We were a bunch of underdogs. And you know what an underdog is? It's a hungry dog," Kelce said, closing out his epic speech.

[Offensive line coach] 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 last five years: Hungry dogs run faster. And that's this team. Bottom line is, we wanted it more.

In the actual parade leading toward the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Kelce was getting himself right with an adult beverage, even downing a cold one in front of a police officer who was clearly not in the mood to spoil his own celebration of the Eagles' victory.

Kelce, properly gassed up, was absolutely on fire once he got started into all the slights directed toward the league.

"Jason Peters was told he was too old," he started. "Didn't have it anymore. Before he got hurt, he was the freakin' tackle in the NFL."

"Stefen Wisniewski ain't good enough. Jason Kelce is 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 is too slow. LeGarrette Blount ain't got it anymore. Jay Ajayi can't stay healthy. Torrey Smith can't catch. Nelson Agholor can't catch. Zach Ertz can't block. Brent Celek is too old. Brandon Graham was drafted too high. Vinny Curry ain't got it. Beau Allen 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! It's the whole team!"
