With AP Photos.Philadelphia officials say two people were stabbed, an officer was assaulted and four police vehicles were slightly damaged during the Eagles' Super Bowl parade. The fans in Philly are some of the most loyal and dedicated when it comes to their team, so much so in fact that it's been heard that a Philly fan will actively fight anyone that badmouths their team.

'Thank you all. I love you all, ' Brady concluded.

Terry Gallen, a fan from Glen Mills, in the Philadelphia suburbs, said he "broke down like a baby and cried" when the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

Laura Dab, also in his group, added, "I like the community of it".

Fans began thronging the parade route at dawn.

The brown wings were part of a Spirit Week project she created years ago as part of an American eagle, and she has just happened to hold onto the artwork.

Reminding us that in Philadelphia, football has a deeper meaning. I had the Eagles winning by two scores last week, and an 8-point margin of victory for Philadelphia means I wasn't too far off. Eagles fans are just happy it worked and this play completely changed the momentum in the Eagles favor entering halftime.

"It's definitely great to have right here in the city".

That said - the enthusiasm and cheer of the crowds seemed to trump any chill.

Until Sunday's 41-33 victory over the favored New England Patriots, the Eagles remained the only team in their division without a Super Bowl title - an ongoing humiliation that gave Philly an inferiority complex and made Eagles fans an easy target for fans of other teams, especially the rival Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

"Mom was a big (former Eagles linebacker) Bill Bergey fan and (former Eagles quarterback) Ron Jaworski fan", Thom explained.

The ESPN report also accused Brady of feeling threatened by 26-year-old backup Jimmy Garoppolo, who was dealt to San Francisco in October and signed a deal on Thursday to become the NFL's highest-paid player. As a courtesy to the fans, filmmaker Gotham Chopra released a statement on Friday to explain why he made a decision to wait to create the final part of the six-part series after the Patriots' Super Bowl loss.

NBC said the out-of-home metric for the Super Bowl was based exclusively on viewership of the NBC broadcast and that it gave the broadcast a 12% lift to an average of 115.6 million viewers, up from the 103.4 million viewers reported on Monday.
