If the City of Brotherly Love has an affinity for you and you find your way into ‘legendary’ status as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, you’re almost immortal. Long after his playing days were over, the name ‘Concrete Charlie’ still meant something. The same can be said about Brian Dawkins and the most beloved Eagle of this time, future Hall-of-Fame inductee Jason Kelce.

They say, if you’re a Raider, you’re a Raider for life. The same thing can be said about the Eagles fraternity.

When his playing days are officially over and he hangs up the cleats for the final time, Jason Kelce won’t ever have to pay for a meal or a beer in Philly again, unless he just wants to. Heck, when Jon Ruyan’s playing days were over, New Jersey’s 3rd district elected him to Congress.

We’re a few years away from hearing the words ‘Philadelphia mayor Jason Kelce’, but you’re in luck. There are theories that he’ll run it back for another season in 2022, and this month, he’ll fill in for Angelo Cataldi during 94 WIP-FM’s Morning Show on Wednesdays, minus March 16th. We’re off to a roaring start.

We’ve long loved Kelce for several reasons. One of the largest is because he’s honest, and in a recent take on MetLife Stadium, the legend gave us another reason to smile.

Jason Kelce calls MetLife Stadium his ‘least favorite’ stadium to play in.

The NFL has seen its franchises build quite a few stadiums over the past 20 years. MetLife Stadium was one of them in 2010. 12 years later, it’s one of pro football’s dumps.

Jason recently called it his ‘least favorite’ stadium that he’s had to play in over the course of his 11-year career. Take a look at this quote:

"(It’s my) least favorite, hands down. (It’s) not even close, MetLife Stadium… It’s a terrible surface. I’m surprised the league hasn’t stepped in at this point, but I think it’s really bad. There’s a higher injury rate on that surface for years now. I don’t know if it’s because there’s two teams playing on it or what’s going on there but it’s easily the least favorite."

To call MetLife Stadium the worst is saying something. You realize that, right? FedExField is no picnic either, and Jason Kelce has spent a considerable amount of time playing there too.

We’ve seen the Eagles legendary radio announcer Merrill Reese elect to call Philadelphia’s last game in FedExField from a location that was a few hours north of Lincoln Financial Field, and then, we saw fans fall after a barricade broke postgame following a big Eagles win.

Trending. Eagles tell Nakobe Dean ‘no thank you’. light

The complaints about MetLife have been damning. This is another. We’ve even heard Giants safety Logan Ryan express some concerns last year. We’ll see if the New York Giants elect to do something about it before Philly shows up in 2022. Let’s hope they do.
