Watch: Eagles Centre Barks Out Rocky Quotes, Slings Expletives In Epic Post-Super Bowl Interview

In the aftermath of the Philadelphia Eagles’ victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Sunday, the media was awash with headlines that opened with the phrase “Move over Rocky” before going on to suggest that Doug Pederson’s side had usurped Sylvester Stallone’s fictional Philly heavyweight boxer Rocky Balboa and become the kings of the sporting underdogs in the ‘City of Brotherly Love.’

It was an easy, perhaps cliched, comparison to draw but it was also apt, especially considering the fact that the Eagles organisation has long cultivated this association, routinely playing montages featuring clips and music from the iconic series of movies on the big screen at Lincoln Financial Field to hype up the fans before home games.

One of these videos even played on the big screen at the U.S. Bank Stadium during the first quarter on Sunday.

It was also apt then that Eagles centre Jason Kelce chose to quote the indefatigable Balboa during an outrageous and downright epic post-game interview right there on the field after the game.

“From Rocky Balboa himself, ‘It’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s about how much you can take and keep moving forward,'” screamed Kelce right into an NBC Sports Philadelphia camera. “That’s how winning is done. And that’s been this organisation, that’s been this team all year. No matter what we face, we’ve overcome it. No matter who went down – franchise quarterback, franchise left tackle, franchise middle linebacker – we’ve overcome everything. Nobody counted us in all year. The media, the entire nation – nobody thought this was going to happen.”

Honestly, this is one of the best sports interviews you will ever see.

Once he got back into the bowels of the stadium, the adrenaline had subsided somewhat and the magnitude of the achievement had sunk in a little more, Kelce gave another very emotional but much more reflective interview on what it meant to be a part of the first Eagles team to ever win an NFL championship.
