Philadelphia’s most beloved athlete, a.k.a “Weapon X” will be enshrined forever in the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend.

While the rest of the country will finally be blessed by Dawk whenever they visit Canton, we here in Philadelphia have been spoiled.

Dawk has been inspiring us for the last 20+ years….he inspires us so much “running through a wall” is no longer just a saying.

And who can blame us for our sometimes “insane” passion? That’s exactly what Dawk brought to the field for us. Every. Single. Game. Remember how he would take the field?

Then what he’d do to other teams? THE HIT MACHINE.


Even when his untimely departure came and he turned into a Bronco, we welcomed him back with open arms. FOREVER AN EAGLE.

Forever our Eagle. Forever one of us.

Brian Dawkins breaks down discussing his Hall of Fame nomination

Brian Dawkins made it to the semifinal round of the Hall of Fame selections as a first-ballot nominee.

It’s that emotion that got you here Dawk. We always knew you’d get the call.

Big Red is proud, and knows Jim Johnson is too…(is it getting dusty in here)

A few more Birds have some special wishes to send to you.


So now finally the time has arrived, ALL of Eagles nation will be watching with pride.
