PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The underdogs are hungry for more, according to one Birds’ player.
Center of attention on the offensive line and crowned headliner for the Eagles Super Bowl parade, Jason Kelce, spoke with “Good Morning Football” on the NFL Network on Wednesday, as he expressed the team’s and the city’s desire to win another championship.
“I still don’t know that we’re getting, probably, the respect we should be getting as the defending Super Bowl champs,” Kelce said.
“I can tell you that we’ve been a starving dog for 52 years and one bowl of food isn’t going to suffice the appetite. We’re still very much hungry. We’re still ready to get after it. And we’re still trying to repeat as champions.”
The Eagles season begins Thursday night, Sept. 6 when they host the Dirty Birds of the South, Atlanta Falcons.
