Birds Fans Flying High

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia football fans are gearing up for Sunday’s big playoff game and they hope to be the not-so-secret element to the Eagles success.

Eagles fans are fired up for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

“You’ve got to win that first round to move on,” one fan said.

Kuznits: “You excited?”


Fans say having home field advantage makes a huge difference in the team’s morale.

“You have home games, the fans are right behind your team, you’re gonna be out there screaming, hollering and I think that really edges them guys to play harder.”

“70,000 people screaming scares another team.  It makes offensive linemen move before the snap of the ball.”

Kuznits: “What if you’re not at the game?”

“You’re in the parking lot!”

“The bars will be packed, people will be having parties.”

Kuznits: “Even if you’re not there at the game do you think the Eagles can still feel the support?”
“I think so!”

“I mean, I’m pretty sure that they listen to the radio.”

“Eagles fans are always gonna be there.”

Kuznits: “Are you one of those people that believes that when you do holler at the TV that you’re helping the team?”

“Yes! You just get excited, you’re into the game and that’s the way it is!”

    Who are we kidding!! The Eagles “Reid” has not put forth his best stuff the past couple of weeks. They are allowing teams to just take shots at Vick. I don’t know if its because of Vicks contract, trying to teach the players lessons, but the eagles should blow the packers out. Vick dominated the packers the 2nd half when he took over, you could tell the packers had no answers. Coach Reid just have to bring his best game plan…….

    I hope they win so I don’t have to see grown men cry all over Philadelphia.
