You can follow Brent on Twitter (@brentcelek) or Facebook.

Thanks to Brent for taking time to answer our questions.  And yes Brent, McNabb did wait outside of a bathroom for Justin Bieber.

CB: Best
thing about playing in Philadelphia?

A:
The fans are great. They are what drive the city. They are so passionate about
their sports so it makes us players passionate.

CB: Worst thing?

A:
The cold weather.

CB:
Recently, a fan ran on the field at a Phillies game and was tasered.  What are your thoughts about fans on the
field, and what measures should be taken?

A:
I don’t think the fans should be on the field but as far as the punishment
thats up to security to decide.

CB: You were
one of McNabb’s favorite targets.  Are
you worried that might change with Kolb?

A:
No, we came in together in the same draft class and we’ve been
friends since then so we have great chemistry. 
When neither of us were starting, we practiced together, so we got our
timing down.

CB: Kevin
Kolb has only thrown 130 passes in the NFL (we were critical of his contract
extension).  What is your confidence
level in Kolb after having a seasoned vet like McNabb out there?

A:
I am very confident in Kevin and know he is going to be a great Quarterback in
this league.

CB: Is there
any difference to catching a ball out of Kolb’s hand, compared to
McNabb’s?  I know some NFL players say
the balls come out differently from different QB’s.

A:
No, there’s not really a difference that I’ve noticed.

CB: What LB
gives you the most problems in coverage?

A:
London Fletcher of the Washington Redskins. 
He is a veteran and a true pro because he understands defensive schemes
and offensive patterns and he’s very good at reading what teams are doing.  He always seems to be in the right place at
the right time.

CB: Describe
the Philadelphia fans?

A:
Like I said, they are extremely passionate and are the best thing about playing
in Philly.

CB: Last
year, you were penalized for taking part in the Captain Morgan pose.  Is the league’s stance on celebrations too
harsh in your opinion?

A:
I don’t think so. I understand where they are coming from, especially because
of what was being represented and if there are rules, you have to live by them
I’m fine with that.

CB: How do
you drink your Captain?

A:
Haha, no comment.

Still awesome

CB: Andy
Reid in one sentence or less.

A:
Extremely smart man who wants nothing but the best out of his players.

CB: We have
poked fun at Desean Jackson’s Twitter posts. 
“Jerk it” “Get it in” and “Popn” are all recurring phrases.  Do you hang out with Desean?  And what is it like being around a
personality like that?

A:
Yes I think Desean is a character but he loves to compete all the time and I
love hanging out with him. He’s definitely a cool guy and he always keeps
things interesting.

CB: If you
weren’t playing football, what would you be doing?

A:
Something with the stock market or a financial advisor.

CB: Kelly
green or midnight green?

A:
Kelly green

CB: Pat’s or
Geno’s?

A:
Jim’s

CB: Favorite restaurant?

A:
El Vez

CB: A night
on the town.  Where are you going?

A:
El Vez

CB: Back to
McNabb.  He recently waited for Justin
Bieber to come out of a bathroom for an autograph.  Is there any athlete/celebrity you would wait
outside a bathroom to get an autograph from?

A:
Where did you hear that?  I would say
Lebron James.

Teammates:

CB: Best friend on the team?

A:
I can’t answer that I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings

CB: Funniest
guy on the team?

A:
Jon Dorenbos

CB: Best
dressed? 

A:
Todd
Herremans

CB: Worst
Dressed?

A:
Sav Rocca

CB:
Philadelphia.  Football town or baseball
town?

A:

the Phillies though.

CB: When
you’re not playing football, you’re________________

Eating

CB: What’s
on your iPod?

A:
Anywhere from Enya to Little Wayne, but no Justin Bieber.

CB: Movie/TV
Show you would be embarrassed to have people find out you like?

A:

Prediction
time:

CB: Number
of Eagles wins in 2010?

A:  There is no predicting our record, I can only

Touchdowns will you have?

  1. His answer to the “Pat’s or Geno’s” question makes me love him even more than I already did. Pat’s and Geno’s are for tourists, any true Philadelphian knows that Jim’s is where it’s at.
