PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Eagles fans are not happy, and that’s not surprising. Five losses in a row in what was supposed to be a Super Bowl season has fans angry, and showing it.
Calls from the crowd to fire coach Andy Reid, along with signs saying the same thing were easy to hear and spot on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
While some of the Eagles (Jason Babin) have questioned the loyalty of the fans, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins feels the opposite way.
“One of the things that I’ve noticed with the Philly fans, is everybody gets on the fans and talks about how whatever comments they have to say,” Jenkins told 94WIP’s Michael Barkann and Ike Reese. “Some people have negative comments towards fans, but there are a lot of real, good, loyal fans out here. There are some extreme fans out here that kind of take over the image and classify the whole group by those few, but there are a lot of really good fans that stay during the games, they stay cheering, they stay supporting us. Sometimes you just have to get past the ones that are being really extreme.”
