Today is the official beginning of the 2015 NFL Season and Philadelphia Eagles released their official hype video to start it off. To get everyone ready they brought in 9 time Pro-Bowler and NFL 2000’s all decade team member…. former Eagles Safety Brian Dawkins…. Weapon X! Just like he was mic’ed up on game-day years ago, Dawkins bring chills of excitement and aspiration to and already ecstatic fan base. Check out the video and or just read the dialog, his message is strong and Philly is most certainly ready for some football after this!
No audio needed! You can feel the passion from Dawkins just by reading what he had to say. Check it out for yourself:
“There’s a moment. It happens every day. After the sun goes down, and there’s no light left. When you look yourself in the mirror, you look yourself in the eye, and you ask: ‘Could I have given more? Could I have worked harder today?’
I know they say, if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. Well I don’t buy that! I think if you love what you do, you’re gonna work ALL day, EVERY day, HARDER than everyone else until they shut the lights off on you. ‘Cause it’s not gonna be easy. It’s not gonna be convenient. ‘Cause you know that ‘OK’ is not OK. And ‘good enough,’ doggonit, ISN’T good enough. ‘Good’ is a four letter word when you’re reaching for more, when you’re working for greatness, working for that cat next to you, working for all those around you, and working to make sure that when you look in the mirror, you are PROUD of who is starting back at you.
And right now, RIGHT NOW, it’s TIME to work!”
