Eagles fans have been waiting for tonight for quite some time. After a long winter in Philadelphia, the weather has warmed up and the Eagles have migrated back to the corner of Broad and Pattison. Organized Team Activities, minicamp and the first few weeks of Training Camp have come and gone, and it's now time for the Eagles to show what they've got in between the white lines.

The Eagles players have also expressed their anticipation and excitement for Friday night's first preseason matchup against the Bears. Here's a look at what the Eagles have been saying via social media about the start of a brand new football season ...
