The Super Bowl LII is just three days away, and the Philadelphia Eagles players cannot wait to take the field and their social media posts showcase that. They will be taking to the field on Sunday (Feb. 4th) against the New England Patriots, when they do take the field, they will be taking the field to a song that has carried them through the NFL postseason and has been their hype song at practices and before the games, Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares.”
The Philadelphia Eagles’ unofficial anthem this season has definitley been, Philly’s own Meek Mills’ “Dreams and Nightmares.” It was playing as practically the entire team danced in a meeting room the day before the NFC Championship Game, again on the field pregame and one more time after they beat the Vikings.
Defensive end Brandon Graham said that the team has decided that this will be the song they’ll come out to this Sunday (Feb. 4th) when they’re introduced as a team to the field. “If you’re going to go with a Philly song,” Graham said, “that’s the one you’re going with.” Mill is currently serving a sentence of two to four years for a parole violation stemming from two arrests. It was a controversial sentencing, as prosecutors recommended no jail time.
“Meek, you know, he’s locked up right now,” Eagles rookie defensive end Derek Barnett said, “so we have to hold the city down for him.” Mill released a statement last week saying it “really lifted my spirit to hear the team rallying around my songs.” He’ll surely get another lift to find out that the Philadelphia Eagles will be using his song, “Dreams and Nightmares” on the NFL’s biggest stage on Sunday.
“It just gets us going,” Barnett said. “It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice.”
