Seeing the underdog logo inside the Super Bowl ring for the Philadelphia Eagles is all sorts of awesome.

While mandatory minicamp was one of the main highlights this week in the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles had something else to celebrate, as Doug Pederson‘s team finally received their Super Bowl rings, and it was well worth the wait.

Hoisting the Lombardi Trophy is one thing, but it’s safe to say nothing compares to the feeling players, coaches, and members of the organization receive when they receive that ring as a prize.

From the team logo having 52 diamonds to the words “All We Got, All We Need” being part of it, there are plenty of reason to love the rings Philadelphia received on Thursday.

With that being said, as great as it was to see all of these personal features on the Super Bowl rings, nothing compares to the underdog symbol that was inside of the ring. As everyone knows, Philadelphia embraced the underdog role during their epic Super Bowl run, and awesome doesn’t even begin to describe what it means seeing the popular masks on the inside.

Here’s what the masks on the rings look like, courtesy of the Eagles team site:

Most football fans wrote off Philadelphia when Carson Wentz went down with a torn ACL, and the team was forced to go with Nick Foles under center as a replacement. And even though Foles struggled for the most part towards the end of the regular season, the backup came up big when it mattered the most in the playoffs along with the Super Bowl.

In a way, the Eagles felt a sign of disrespect being underdogs in each of their three postseason games, especially the two that were played in front of their own fans at Lincoln Financial Field.

Then again, watching Philadelphia win their first Super Bowl title the way they did was quite special, and the team wouldn’t change anything about the experience, not even the factor of being underdogs.

Eagles fans will forever remember those epic masks worn by players throughout the playoffs, and seeing the logo as part of the rings makes this whole thing even more special.

Of course, the one thing Pederson recently made clear is this team will no longer be considered underdogs since they’re going to be hunted as defending champions, but at least the underdog role was fun while it lasted in Philadelphia since it brought a Super Bowl to the city.
