Jason Kelce, Ladies and Gentlemen: No one has ever seen a Super Bowl parade speech like the one Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jason Kelce gave today.

In the less taciturn, more demonstrative post-Belichick NFL, teams are going to ask themselves "Do we have a guy like this on the roster?" If the answer is no, they'll want to find one.

When Mike Lombardi called the Eagles a "nightmare matchup" going into the Super Bowl, he probably didn't realize that the dream would continue on the other side of Sunday.

Notice that Kelce didn't say anything bad about Collinsworth and Michaels, who gave him a lot of love during the game.

Having now beaten the Pats, somehow I don't see Kelce following the Michael Strahan path into the network broadcast field.

But if someone ever wants to cook up a concept like "Duck Dynasty does Mardi Gras", then I think he's got a gig.

I knew that Travis was outspoken/flamboyant, but I had no idea that his brother made him like like a shrinking violet in comparison! Kelce has a great career in the WWE waiting for him upon retirement if he wants it.

His outfit also led me to learn about Philly's annual mummer's parade, which looks like a hell of a good time.
