Philadelphia Eagles celebrate Super Bowl win with parade

Philadelphia Eagles celebrate Super Bowl win with parade

The parade ended at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a victory rally with the team. Jason Kelce is in full Mummers regalia, faintly resembling an Aladdin costume in a nod to Philadelphia's raucous annual parade on New Year's Day.

At the raucous, emotional parade, Kelce - who was dressed in a green matador jacket and a white sultan's hat with green stripes - addressed hundreds of thousands of partying fans who jammed the freezing streets leading to the city's famed "Rocky" steps, to revel in an National Football League title many thought would never come.

Of Pederson, an emphatic Kelce said, "He wasn't playing to be mediocre, he was playing for the Super Bowl!" And it don't stop with him. Nigel Bradham can't catch. It's the whole team!

Kelce said the team wasn't anxious about what one particular person could or couldn't do, but focused on the Eagles' collective effort.

"We're a bunch of underdogs and you know what underdogs are, they're hungry dogs", said Kelce. (Offensive line coach) Jeff Stoutland has had this in our building for five years. "And hungry dogs run faster". And that's this team. "We wanted it more".

First, Kelce spoke about the Eagles' front office, speaking about the general manager's banishment during the Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia, and how his return to making personnel decisions helped create the team that won the title.

A total of 850 Port-A-Potties were set up along the route, and they might be needed with the beer available. The beer giveaway at select taverns stems from a comment made by Eagles right tackle, Lane Johnson, who told ESPN in August that he would give out free beer to everybody if the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

Philadelphia-based Yards Brewing also announced it would offer free Philly Pale Ale Thursday in the brewery's taproom.

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney asked fans to celebrate with passion and pride after Sunday's wild postgame celebration was marred by "knuckleheads" who resorted to violence and vandalism. Sunday's postgame celebration included some violence and vandalism.
