This attitude against fans has to stop.

Fans of other non-sports things are vocal and downright nasty if they don't like something. You don't see musicians, actors, corporations, government leaders, etc. bashing their fans or paying customers when they are putting out a bad product and the fans react. If they do, they are criticized for it and end up having to apologize.

BMarsh and Cutler backed the fans saying the boos were well deserved. Hell they haven't won a game in december since 2010.

Athletes complaining about the fans is hysterical. We're the reason you get to make millions of dollars playing a game...

He's clearly never been to Philly.


Lol at how the comments on that article somehow turned into a Eagles fan bashing fest.

i'd rather have that than the fans we have in Dallas, that is the only stadium that gets taken over most weeks by the opposing fans, Dallas had 2 false start penalties last week because pitt fans were so loud

Philadelphia, New York and Minnesota come to mind as cities that would rival Chicago for the “band wagon” award….. They still show up but their pure support is questionable at best….

This guy rightfully got plenty of thumbs down for that comment, but wow what a buffoon that guy made himself look like with that comment.

This season has actually opened my eyes when it comes to Philly in particular...I always thought you guys lived and died with your team, but this season I've seen an alarming number of empty seats fairly early in games.

that's true. It's more so due to people finally being done with the Andy Reid era. It's been nice but he was coaching on borrowed time.

Man Briggs and Urlacher are out of touch with reality. Those fans pay a ton of money sand spend a lot of their free time to go to these games. If they feel they are getting lower quality product than they should be receiving, then they have the right to boo. And the Bears don't win in December, don't ever beat their biggest rival, are on a massive losing streak and are about to blow a 7-1 start. Fans have a right to be pissed. When did all these football players suddenly develop this need to be coddled by the fans?

Theyre not a football team. They're a money making attraction. An amusement park if you will. Most people don't go to Disney World and rant and rave about how much they love it.

Giants fans started booing in the second quarter of game 1 this season after the team was coming off a Super Bowl win. No fans boo more than NY and Philly fans. Dude is clueless.

At least we don't cheer when our starting quarterback gets injured like Kansas City.

New England isn't any different.

This isn't Green Bay or Buffalo. In bigger cities people have lives/other means for entertainment and if the product is subpar, people will bail. I wouldn't be shocked if the Eagles had a blackout or two, next year.

As for Briggs's comment. The way players view fans is pretty much how most people view their extended family. They aren't as important as your siblings/parents (teammates/coaches) but you still love them if they are extremely nice and supportive (Seattle, New Orleans), you're indifferent to them if they don't affect you (Tennessee, St.Louis) and you keep your distance if they're negative and bishy (New York, Philthy, Boston)

I don't care what football players have to say.

Briggs and Urlacher should stick to linebacking.
