The Eagles’ Team Photo Is, in Fact, in the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Eagles do everything fast. So when it was time to take the team photo, Chip Kelly said they set a record by getting all of the pictures done in just about five minutes [editor’s note: four minutes and 40 seconds]. In response to how fast the photos were taken, Coach Kelly said, “It’s not like it’s going to be hanging in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It’s going to go in someone’s office somewhere, so let’s just get it done.” He’s right, except that he’s wrong.

Today, in response to the coach’s comments, the Philadelphia Museum of Art framed up the team photo and displayed it next to a paining of Prometheus — a Titan, the Greek giants of myth — being overpowered by an Eagle. It looks like the Eagles social media game is elevating the work of those around them, and it’s great.

  1. The title of the painting is “Prometheus Bound”, and in brief, it was his fate that he would be attacked each day by an eagle, who would then remove and eat his liver, only to have it regenerate by morning, as he awaited the eagle’s next visit. And…it is awesome that the PMofA picked this painting as the companion display for the team picture, as each week our Eagles prepare to “rip the guts” out of their opponents – especially those in the NFC East, against whom they may do it again and again. I agree – kudos to both the Eagles Social Media / Marketing people and the PM of A!

  2. This is something that take such little effort that is just awesome.

    The whole city changes when the Eagles are doing well. Many people who were younger during the 2004 run won’t ever really understand exactly what this city was like. Everything in some way came back to the Eagles. Everything.

    The whole city was buzzing and it is starting to do that again.

  3. the first thing i noticed when i went to the Museum was the medieval armour and swords and things for killing.

    For it is the doom of Man that he forgets…..
