Philadelphia Eagles Jayson Kelce speaks to fans attending Super Bowl LII celebration at Philadelphia Art Museum on Feb. 8, 2018.  Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

No one — and we mean no one — was more fired up when the Philadelphia Eagles held their championship parade on Thursday than Jason Kelce, and the veteran offensive lineman used the platform to unload on the media in a way you have probably never heard before.

NFL GM turned analyst Michael Lombardi caught the worst of it by far. Back in September, Lombardi criticized Pederson for being “(maybe) less qualified to coach an NFL team than anyone I’ve seen in my 30-plus years in the NFL.” The Eagles clearly did not forget it, nor did they forget any of the other ways the media doubted them during an improbable run that ended with a win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Kelce spoke for the entire team in crucifying the naysayers, and he did it while wearing one of the most outlandish outfits you will ever see. You’ll want to watch the entire thing:

“This past offseason, some clown named Mike Lombardi told (Pederson) that he was the least qualified head coach in the NFL … a man who went for it on fourth down in the Super Bowl with a trick play,” Kelce screamed. “He wasn’t playing just to go mediocre, he’s playing for a Super Bowl!”

If you remember, Lombardi was partially responsible for some talk about an issue among the Eagles’ coaches early in the season. So much for that.

Overall, Lombardi had a very tough week. Even before Kelce blasted him, the former scout and executive was ripped to shreds for doubting Pro Football Talk’s report that said Josh McDaniels was having second thoughts about becoming the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

Analysts who rely on delivering hot takes always run the risk of looking bad. For Lombardi, the breeze from the whiffs can be felt from miles away.
