Is anyone else excited? With less than a week remaining until the Philadelphia Eagles kick off their 2021 season versus the Atlanta Falcons, depending on where you are and how long you’ve been watching this team, you probably feel like you’ve had some sort of sugar or adrenaline rush.

Philly’s first game is scheduled for 1 p.m EST on September 12th, and it’s on the road. We’re one step closer now. You can always tell when certain things happen, the announcement of the team captains for instance. Now that we know who they are, let’s do our part to help them out.

Consider what follows as their motivational speeches.

Here’s a quick pep talk for every Philadelphia Eagles captain.

Just in case you missed the announcement, here are the Philadelphia Eagles’ six captains: safety Rodney McLeod, linebacker Alex Singleton, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, defensive end Brandon Graham, center Jason Kelce, and quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Here are a few words to fire each of them up.

Fletcher Cox: It’s been 12 years, and you’re still going strong 91! All center Fletcher Cox has to do in order to wreak havoc is stay hungry and be himself. Remember that this defense goes as you do.

Rodney McLeod: One of the great men in this game both on and off the field. Since his arrival, the Birds are just better when Rodney McLeod is on the field than they are when he isn’t. He and Anthony Harris WILL be one of the best safety tandems in the league. Period.

Alex Singleton: Good things come to those who wait, and Alex Singleton has earned this opportunity. Now, on to bigger and better things. Mr. Singleton believes that he can break the team’s single-season record for tackles, and if the way he flies around is any indication, that may not be out of the realm of possibility.

Brandon Graham: Talk about getting better with age! Longtime Philadelphia Eagles legend Brandon Graham notched his first Pro Bowl nod in year 11, and he’s just getting started. A second-consecutive trip to the NFL’s all-star game is definitely in the cards for 2021.

Jason Kelce: If this is, indeed, the last ride for Jason Kelce, ten, let’s hope the legend goes out with a bang.

Jalen Hurts: Simply put, go out and prove the doubters wrong Jalen Hurts! You’ve won everywhere that you’ve been. Be who you are. Everything else will take care of itself.
