‘We Will Rise’: This Video Will Get You Pumped Up for the Eagles

Sep 3, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

Football fans in the Delaware Valley and all over are starting to get excited. The NFL kicks off the regular season on Thursday, then after a full slate of action on Sunday the Eagles head to Washington for the first half of a Monday night double header.

In preparation for the return of the Birds, PhiladelphiaEagles.com is asking fans to Tweet using the hashtag #FlyEaglesFly so their thoughts will appear on this pretty cool social media page. The real gem here though is at the top in the form of a video that intertwines the team and its fans nicely, set to a backdrop of shots from around the city as well as some of the greatest players and plays in franchise history.

The part that stood out to me was the “we will rise” sentiment. I’m not sure if the narrator meant that as Eagles fans will wake from their slumbers and be ready to go wild every Sunday, but I took it to mean this franchise and the city along with it will rise on the wings of an improving team and new vision.

Regardless of how you interpret its message, if you bother to at all, this is a well-produced video featuring plenty of the all-time Eagles favorites and highlights. Enjoy!

    Sounds like Mike from Breaking Bad doing the voiceover.

      I think it’s Rawls from “The Wire”

        It definitely sounds like Rawls (John Doman), and it would be a fitting choice as well, considering he graduated from North Catholic and got his degree from Penn.

      There was one that was played a lot back during their 2010 Final run. It was the same audio as this clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijTwZNUBhcI ), but I cannot find the Flyers one. It was pretty cool, though.

      Chances are good that the700level.com posted a link to it back in the day.

        That hit and Dawkins v. Crumpler are 1 and 1a in modern Eagles football. The fact that Alge had 50+ lbs on Dawk and he still went down like a sack of kittens makes it so awesome.

    McNabb’s quadruple juke is awesome.
