As Philly counts down to the big game, they've been posting pregame speeches from Dawkins to get fired up. The nine-time Pro Bowl safety played for the Eagles from 1996 through 2008 -- a period in which the team made the playoffs eight times, including a Super Bowl XXXIX run in 2004.

Check out the motivational speeches that have been posted thus far and a notable quote from each of them.
