I know we're 3-8 and Reid is on the brink of getting fired real soon, but it's a Monday Night Football game on national television and the Linc was dead last night. Yea, we have nothing to cheer for or about but were trying to break outta this slump here. Agree that there is nothing to cheer about but the only time I heard the crowd get into it was when they went for it on 4th and 2 in the 4th quarter then Foles goes up to the line and silents the crowd down with his arms. Ok he doesn't want any false starts at the time but come on fans.

In case Jeffrey is more oblivious that he probably is, the empty seats and lack of enthusiasm should tell him all he needs to know.

why don't you get off your dead a** and pay for a ticket/trip to the linc and cheer if it means that much to you?

People aren't going to games because they don't want to pay for a terrible product. Voting with your dollars. The embarrassment of empty seats on national TV and the loss of merchandise revenue is the best way to force the owner's hand and it looks like it's going to work.

I would have to drive 4 hours, stay in a hotel and buy tickets. No way in hell I'm putting that money down on a team that puts me to sleep.

while this is all true, I never thought I'd actually see it. :lol: Thing is, most of those seats are already paid for though

It's a work night.  I guess most people would rather get a couple hours more sleep than sit in a plastic chair, outside, watching the Eagles lose.


I don't blame them.

Is this a serious question? The Eagles are 3-8, they were hosting the 2-8 Panthers, they had lost 6 straight games, the franchise has undergone a steady regression for three years now, and Jeffrey Lurie and the rest of the front office, including Reid, have ish all over the fans at every possible turn.

This is ignoring the fact that the team is comprised of the most unlikable, insufferable bunch of me-first, whiny, and indignant bishes ever assembled.

It was also a bitterly cold weeknight.

Is that enough reasons?

I think you answered your own question.

Maybe the fans will return when Vick is gone!!!!  I know I will not support or back a team that sold its soul to the DEVIL to win a championship!!!!! I think by now the eagles must realize that Vick is not the answer!!!!!!!!!  Let him go  GOD WILL NOT LET THE EAGLES WIN A SUPER BOWL WHILE  VICK IS THERE AND I WILL NOT BE BACK AS A FAN ANYTIME SOON FOR THEIR STUPIDITY !!!!!!!!!!!!  GETTING RID OF REID  IS NOT THE ANSWER. THIS TEAM HAS A TON OF TALENT  they need a quarterback that can lead by example  eg  MANNING   BRADY  ELWAY  MONTANA   Good people  NOT SOME LOSER!!!!!!!!!!  IT MAKES ME LAUGH THE WAY PEOPLE USED TO BEAT UP MCNABB, HE BEATS VICK BY A MILE WITH WHAT HE DID FOR THE EAGLES!   I would love nothing more than to be an EAGLES fan again.

Right.  God won't let the Eagles win.  That must be it.  How do you explain the 49 years prior to them signing Vick?
