The Eagles held Brian Dawkins retirement ceremony at halftime of Sunday night's game against the Giants. Below is the video of a portion of his address to the crowd.

Dawkins also had a chance to address Eagles fans just prior to the game.

"Thank you for this tremendous honor. See, I didn't grow up thinking about anything like this and I've said this a number of times, and I meant that. I didn't grow up thinking I was going to get my number retired somewhere. I just wanted to go out and do my best for whomever it is I got a chance to play for. And if my best was not good enough, then I had to put on another source of energy; that's my spiritual side, so that I could put my super on my natural and give you all some supernatural stuff. But listen, thank you very much for this. This is a tremendous honor. I will always be an Eagle in my heart and I will always, always look to represent this organization and you guys to the best of my abilities. Thank you very much."
