After watching the Patriots portion of Super Bowl Opening Night (formerly known as media day) and nearly falling asleep, it was time for the Philadelphia Eagles to take the stage. But before I even had time to get a cup of coffee to help me wake, the Birds took care of raising the energy level for me.
#Eagles media night is now over. The personalities between the two teams couldn’t be more different.— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) January 30, 2018
Without Rob Gronkowski to save them, the Pats didn't stand a chance.
From dog masks being worn by interviewers and players alike to Lane Johnson's sunglasses, and from Doug Pederson's fascination with J.B. Smoove to Julie Ertz's now-world-famous tacos, the Eagles provided enough entertainment for everyone.
Unfortunately, it was after 10 p.m. in Philadelphia by the time they came out – that's just one of several reasons why having this event in primetime doesn't make much sense. But don't worry if you missed it. We've got you covered with all the highlights from the entire night.
