I think Eagles fans are just depressed. When I lived there, if I talked to any of them a day or two before the game, 90% of them were like, "OK, what's going to go wrong now?" They're even worse than 49ers fans.

It's like when they're losing, they love to be cynical, and when they're winning, they can't believe it. I have no idea why that is, but they really do have some kind of masochistic bent.

I doubt McNabb cares much. He's already been able to shrug off the same shit for 10 years, so why would this be the one that rattles his cage?

It's amazing what a well placed mountain range can do

And following the first bad game Ben has this season people will be right back to riding his ass again. No, in this regard, Eagles fans and Steelers fans are very much alike, like it or not.
This comparison makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. You're trying to compare our message board crowd with their fans in the stands. Every teams' message boards have people who say all kinds of crazy things. That's the nature of the internet. Just because you have 20 people on a forum who want Lefty starting b/c Ben has a bad game doesn't mean it's gonna turn into a chant it at Heinz Field. That's the difference between us and Philly.

Big Ben said the hometown boos incited his halftime tirade, which sparked the offense to play better.

You're talking about a fan base who harassed and berated a 4-time SB champion and 2-time SB MVP so much that he didn't come back to Pittsburgh for 20 years.

So yeah, The Nation isn't much better than Philthy fans in that regard. They are and have been just as harsh and fickle.

Thank you. That's exactly what I was getting at. Fans are fans, regardless of whether they're on the web or in the stands.

Actually I had forgotten about that. It was pretty bad in the Korkie days too, but he deserved it. I guess I was just surprised to hear that in a pre-season game.
