Brian Dawkins is a much revered legend among Philadelphia Eagles fans across the country. The former pro-bowler was an integral part of the Andy Reid-Donovan McNabb led teams that took four consecutive trips to the NFC Championship Game, also including winning one of those and making a trip to the Super Bowl.
On the field, Dawkins was known as one of the most tenacious players in the history of the game. He played the safety position with a ruthless aggression that had opposing offensive players across the league in constant fear of meeting him in the secondary–or worse, off a blitz.
Dawkins is indeed a legend, and one that should be appreciated.
Well, there’s one Eagles fan that really wanted to show his appreciation for his favorite NFL player of all-time. Dawkins better be his favorite player ever, because if not, he’s really going to regret this decision.
