Just wait for the inevitable scamble on which he fumbles. They'll start throwing batteries.

I was going to point out how they booed him on draft day, but MOP already posted the link. Which btw, the list of top 10...2 philly teams you could also add the fliers too as XT said.

So yeah, The Nation isn't much better than Philthy fans in that regard. They are and have been just as harsh and fickle.
This is very true. Can't argue with that. Some even swug their Bradshaw dolls by a hangmens noose.
It happens everywhere...some just take it to a higher level.

Oh the most beloved man on the team, the backup QB.

McNabb brought this on himself by reportedly lobbying for Vick. The love affair with Vick won't last, the Philly fickles will see to it.

I live in Eagles territory (and most of you know I was an Eagles fan at one time) and a lot of people have given up on the season already. The offense is messy. A lot of the problem is bringing in Vick during the middle of a series and messing up the rhythm of the offense. They also don't have their entire OL intact. And their defense is just awful this year.

There's one common thought among all Eagles fans right now whether they love or hate Vick: It's that it doesn't make football-sense to have him. McNabb is already ridiculously insecure about his job and then you bring a guy like Vick in to further threaten him?

I'm just glad we're not dealing with this mess. I can just silently chuckle at my friends and coworkers as they watch their team start to fall apart.

You can leave it at that but I won't. TB admitted that he had BIG TIME anxiety problems that also contributed to his long time away from Pittsburgh. It wasn't just some deep anger towards the fans. Also, I'm not even basing my opinion on the moral side of this. My reasoning is simply that Philly fans are stupid. I don't care how hard we were on TB, we NEVER, I repeat, NEVER would have been chanting to bring in his back up in a preseason game if he were coming off of a season where he threw for nearly 4,000 yards, 23 TD's, and 11 int's as McNabb did last season.

See, I'm not that confident that they wouldn't. If the fans couldn't keep from booing/jeering Tommy Maddox during the fricking victory parade for XL, what makes you think they wouldn't ever call for the backup in that situation? Hell, there were fans calling for Ben to be benched last year, in the middle of an eventual SB winning season, and coming off a season where he broke Bradshaw's record for TD passes in a season and had 2 perfect passer rating games.

Our fan base is fickle as hell, dude. Time to face fact.

maybe I was watching the wrong game but I am pretty sure that the backup QB Kolb threw the pick that prompted the mock "We want Vick!" chant?

It had nothing to do with McWormball in that game. Week 6 may be a different story.
