Jadeveon Clowney: Eagles have “worst fans in the world”

Eagles fans are not happy with Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney after he injured quarterback Carson Wentz with a helmet-to-helmet hit in the first quarter of Sunday’s game. Clowney does not like Eagles fans, either.

Clowney said after the game that the fans in Philadelphia are the worst in the world.

Worst fans in the world,” Clowney said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. “You know that, right? They hated me coming out [of the tunnel], they hated me going in . . . I don’t know why. I’m just like, trying to be friends. I’m a friendly guy.”

Clowney also injured then-Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in a game last year, and Clowney says he felt the hatred from Eagles fans then, too.

“I tried to tell them boys on my team. I said, ‘This team hates me. Their fans hate me for some reason’ They think I tried to kill Nick Foles,” Clowney said.

Clowney will be a free agent this offseason. He probably won’t be signing in Philadelphia.

  1. He’s absolutely right. As far as getting physical, the Philly fans are the worse fans in professional sports. When you throw batteries at kids, spit in their faces, push them down, then talk about a 90 year old superfan like they did, you deservingly get that label. The sad part is, nobody there cares, or just to dumb to understand.

  2. …and if you listen to radio stations like WIP in Philly, you realize that that city also has the worst sports media in the country as well. Clowns and fools.

  3. As a Pats fan I’m not fond of either team, but that hit was dirty – he unnecessarily followed Wentz down, aiming to hit the QB’s head on the ground with either his shoulder or helmet.

  4. He’s trying to make us feel surprised about something that’s been the case since way before he was even born. They booed Santa. What more do you need to know?

  5. What does Clown expect, Eagle fans paying for a statue of him and putting it outside the stadium? Any fans in any city would boo a defender who knocks their quarterback out of the game with a concussion.

  6. The only time I hear fans cheer when their quarterback was injured by an opposing team was when Dan Pastorini was the quarterback of the Raiders and he was playing poorly. The Raiders fans in Oakland cheered when he broke hid leg. Jim Plunkett was sent into the game, and he proceeded to win 2 super Bowl rings for the Raiders.

  7. Speaking as an Eagles fan, I’m not always in agreement with the extreme nature of a lot of the hyped up masses. That said, Clowney’s hit on Wentz was excessive and clearly meant to injure. Pete Carrol chuckled when he was asked if he thought the hit was clean. Shameful.

  8. I went to the Linc for a Dolphins game. The majority of Eagles fans were extremely nice. However, there were plenty of overly aggressive drunk people that had no problem harassing my wife and me. In defense of Eagles fans, I feel safer at the Linc than I do at Foxboro. There are bad fans everywhere.

  9. Maybe if you didn’t cheap shot their qb…. seattle barely won vs a bunch of practice squad player and a 40yr old qb, they will get smoked in Green Bay

  10. I absolutely without a shadow of doubt love the reputation us Eagle fans have. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Here in Philly, that’s how we’re wired and are proud of it.

  11. Gee, I wonder if your injuring Wentz had anything to do with the way they acted toward you.

  12. He’s right. We went to the playoff game 2 years ago.bottles and beer were thrown at us by both men and women. Never have felt threatened at a game till then. The vulgar language was awful.. I’ll never ,ever go to the city again.

  13. He was trying to get traded to Philly or Seattle just before the season started. I guess they weren’t that bad then.

  14. I’d say mini runs a close second to Philly. You can’t really blame the Barney trolls for their bad behavior. Inbreeding has left its mark after a couple generations in the land of ten thousand trailer park casspools!

  15. It’s a shame that people don’t understand the Philly fan. If they took the time to learn about the Philly fan they would understand. Philly fans are the most knowledgeable hands down, the most loyal hands down. The fact that they will go all out to allow the morons to say these hateful things about them, proves they get it. The fact that your fandom doesn’t measure up to the Philly fan causes you hate beyond the realm of sanity. Someday I hope all fans can get the fulfillment that Philly fans have.

  16. As a Cardinals fan I never thought I would say this….
    I agree with a player for the Seahawks, in this case Jadeveon Clowney. But to be fair Cowboys fans are number two. Every year the past 24 years “they are going to win the Superbowl”.
    Can you imagine how annoying they will be if they actually win again?

  17. It was dirty! he wanted to put him out of the game, he’s knows it, he should have been flaged, also should been out of the game, If that was Brady he would have been.

  18. I agree that it was a dirty hit. He could have easily gone in hands first in that situation. No need to lead with the shoulder. He wasn’t leading with his head from what I could tell. The helmet to helmet contact was an accident I think.

    Philly fans have a reputation, but I’d be pissed at someone who drove their shoulder into my QB’s back and knocked him out of the game. It was un-necessary roughness and he will probably get fined for it.

  19. I’m not sure about the world. I’ve seen some wild footage of European soccer fans, but when it comes to American sports…100% correct. When the Vikings went to Philly for the NFC championship Pat Elflien broke his ankle. Philly fans, sitting around the guy’s parents, were yelling “get the fat fxxx off the field!” Several Vikings fans were severely harassed to the point of assault, being pushed down stairs, punched…The NFL even spoke out about it. I mean, what other fan base destroys their own city after winning a Super Bowl?

  20. Dude the losers in Philly threw batteries at Santa Claus ok, so there’s no need to explain yourself. They hate their own mothers there it’s a trash city with a trash fan base

  21. If he means us Eagle fan live our team and “dislike” players that intentionally try to injury our best player…year after year with cheap shots. He’s right. On a more sensible take of it. We dislike stupid players. Like a player who’s a free agent talking bad about fans in one of the biggest markets in the NFL. Way to eliminate an option. He’s over rated anyway or always hurt…Sorry we hurt your little feelings J.C. start playing with integrity. I like Russell Wilson though.

  22. Bad fans or not, that hit was intended to injure the quarterback. Clowney led with his helmet (from behind the play) at Wentz’s head as he was falling to the ground. The nasty Philly fans may have said things that hurt your feelings but they didn’t intentionally concuss anyone (not this time anyway)! Pretty sure any “real” fan base would be upset about their quarterback being knocked out of a playoff game from a dirty hit.

    And isn’t there a statute of limitations on the “throwing snowballs at Santa thing”? I mean come on people…haven’t Philly fans given you anything else since 1968? That’s the best you can come up with? That’s just lazy, lol

  23. I’d like to take this time to remind everybody that Joe Frazier, Sonny Liston, and Bernard Hopkins are all from Philly, yet the city idolizes a fictitious white boxer.

    Worst. Fans. Ever.

  24. I’m an Eagles fan, but the guy has a point. 90% of the people at the games are lowlife drunks whose whole life revolves around going to the games and trying to prove how tough they are.

  25. Jadeveon the clown is just that..a clown. Two years in a row he has physically committed battery on our quarterbacks (Foles-2018, Wentz – 2019) outside of the rules of football, both times no flag was thrown which has given him license to continue this type of action. As far as the fans, whatever, People have been killed at AT&T, in San Fran and at Raiders games. That’s a distinction Philly fans do not have. Saints fans pelted the refs leaving the field on Sunday with various debris, that ha been kept quiet. This trite narrative of the big bad Philly fans are more tired than referees screwing these games up with incompetence or because the game is rigged.

  26. I don’t think the hit was intent to injure, but it definitely should have been a penalty. There have been many instances of lesser hits being penalized.

  27. Most obnoxious fans? Maybe. Worst no. You have to look out at sunny LA where you can’t even get 10,000 Chargers or Rams fans to show up for a game. Huge fail by the NFL and it’s great leader Roger Goodell.

  28. He knocked out the QB so of course is goinf to get hate. Was it intentional? No. Dude plays hard and fast and in football that’s how it goes. If you played football at any level, were on offense and never received a helmet to helmet, then you most likely didn’t get any playing time because football is a fast sport and these things happen. But still the result is what it is and the play should of been flagged. That however doesn’t make it dirty.

  29. Clowney is a dirty player. Period. He always has been. On Sunday he went straight for Wentz’s head. He wasn’t trying to tackle him, wasn’t trying to wrap him up. The contact wasn’t insidental.

  30. Was a hit that should have been called from the officiating crew. Big Clown should be fined and he is crying the blues

  31. I’d agree with Clowney, if I’d never been to any KC Chiefs home games. Worst “fans” I’ve ever been around.

  32. …and if you listen to radio stations like WIP in Philly, you realize that that city also has the worst sports media in the country as well.
    ———-
    I think sports talk radio is greatly dead in America. Kind of like music’s dead. Sports talk radio is more or less cry baby radio. You are suppose to feel informed when you listen but listening only makes you feel dumb. But you have to hire intelligent people to have intelligent sports talk. Dumb dumbs come a dime for a dozen. So the airwaves are full of dimes.

  33. Never been to Philly and don’t know much about it’s sports fans but bottom line is that it was a dirty cheap shot but not surprised it came from him. I put him in the same class as Myles Garrett.

  34. How do you go from being a cheap shot artist to blaming the other teams fan base?

    No one in the stands made him cheap shot Wentz!

    I hope he gets a 6 game suspension 100K find and done for the year!

    If we are protecting QB’s do it don’t make it selective.

  35. Low life fan base. They think it’s romantic to be the most vilified. I saw one once trip a crippled kid down the steps in the steep upper deck of old giants stadium. Shocked the football gods actually bestowed a super bowl on them jagos. Shows how much they were REALLY sick of pat cheating.

  36. He’s absolutely right. They pride themselves in getting in faces and intimidating visiting team’s fans. I’ve had full beer cans thrown at me for simply walking thru the parking lot to the stadium.

  37. Thank you Captain Obvious. Only other fan base that comes close are the NU Jets… well, they used to be cause if they couldn’t find another teams fans to fight they’d just fight themselves but ever since the new stadium went in (PSLs) every game in Met Life is an away game for them anyway so they’ve changed a bit

  38. Of course they do. It’s the bowels of the tri state area. They’re white trash mouthbreathers.

    It’s one thing MY and Boston fans can agree on.

    Their inferiority complex is worse than Baltimore’s.

  39. I don’t get how any of the comments and descriptions make them bad fans. They’re by far the most passionate fans in the NFL and they don’t play the fake-politeness game when they don’t really mean it. They boo their opponents and when the team plays poorly or stupidly, they boo their own Eagles. I’d say that honest communication makes them great fans.

  40. It’s a shame that people don’t understand the Philly fan. If they took the time to learn about the Philly fan they would understand. Philly fans are the most knowledgeable hands down, the most loyal hands down. The fact that they will go all out to allow the morons to say these hateful things about them, proves they get it. The fact that your fandom doesn’t measure up to the Philly fan causes you hate beyond the realm of sanity. Someday I hope all fans can get the fulfillment that Philly fans have.
    _______________________

    See, this statement alone prove what clowns philly fans are. True deplorables.

  41. It’s the truth. Remember when they threw full cans of beer at people? Pepperidge Farms remembers.

  42. Clowney knew what he was doing, spare us the crying. Vontaze Burfict and James Harrison never apologized for doing the dirty work.

  43. Wishing someone and their family dead because he hurt the QB of the team you cheer for is low. I understand emotions run high for us fans because we are passionate but Eagles fans on their SB Nation site were calling for him to be attacked and not make it out of Philly.

  44. There is no one outside of Philly that would disagree with him! They are pure trash. I met an older guy this past weekend that lived in Philly, moved here 25 years ago and he said they were crap then and crap now because he still goes back.

    Dude the losers in Philly threw batteries at Santa Claus ok

    If you’re going to site decades old BS stories the least you can do is get the BS right. I’m not even sure batteries existed when drunk Santa was supposedly booed.

  46. the Eagles fans reputation is pretty bad, but honestly most NFL stadiums are full of confrontational rude people. Its not a family environment and its hardly even a fun environment. Thats why theyre building so many suites, but if you sit in a suite you are a geek!

  47. As an Eagles fan i love that comment from Clowney! We despise the fans of other teams and other teams players too. Come to our stadium and prepare for confrontation. I LOVE IT

  48. You’re wrong Clowney. The worst fans of any sports team worldwide is the new England Patriot fans.

  49. I wonder how Clowney would react if some defender speared Russell Wilson helmet to helmet like that.

    He’d probably be leading the mob, carrying pitchforks and torches.

  50. Some people are just not good people. Don’t call an entire fanbase bad people just because of the loudest, dumbest ones. And guess what dude? Most of your pay comes from the TV deals. The vast majority of Eagles fans were watching on TV, contributing to your game check.

    I was excited to see Clowney come to the Seahawks and had hoped he would re-sign, but he has too much to learn to justify paying what it would take to keep him.

    Still don’t think the hit was dirty, but it should have been flagged and I wish Wentz a speedy recovery

  51. Nothing against Wentz but his injuries feel like karma for when Philly cheered when Irvin was injured. Not all of them are bad as I have a few friends from Philly but the majority of them are completely classless.

  52. They actually had to build a jail and an arraignment room in the old Veterans Stadium because they filled up the buses too fast to drive everyone to the JP’s office. They are total idiots. Any parent who takes a child to an Eagles game is just asking for something bad to happen.

  53. I’m Philly born and bred. And I get why our fanbase is derided, but I’ve gotta tell ya…I’ve been to just about every major league sports town and have taken in a lot of games in those stadiums and the passion that Philly fans bring to the stadium is just unsurpassed. Yeah, it manifests as irrational BS a lot of the time, but really, there is nothing like that fan base and the energy they bring to their teams…nothing like it anywhere I’ve been.

  54. Apparently, that amazing Super Bowl win a couple of years back is done nothing to take the edge off. Went to a Phillies game once. Chicks were hot and people were nice there.

  55. I am a Pats fan but know some Philly fans pretty well. Even they say there are a large number of Philly fans that are over the top vicious so yeah, the comment itself is not earth shattering. What is shattering is CLOWNey saying he is a nice guy, yeah ok, so you are just misunderstood right? The hit was dirty, it shows CLOWNey changing the angle of his head as he is going down and in all likely hood INTENDING to cause physical harm using his HEAD, textbook penalty by a repeat offender. He is bad for the game and should be banned from playing, period!

  56. Philly fans know their sports but are extremely rude….remember a lot of their fans are from Jersey…..nuff said. But they are not beating the Pats fans by much..

  57. The fact that the fans are terrible doesn’t excuse the fact that Clowney is a cheap shot artist. He clearly was head hunting on Wentz and got away with it because of incompetent officials.

    Clowney needs to be suspended.

  58. Philly fans are horrible, but my vote goes to the Patriots fans…whenever you have fans burning Tom Freaking Brady’s Jersey after all he did in the last two decades, you deserve the top spot and be cursed to watch the 1980-90’s Patriots for the rest of your life….

  59. This coming from a Clown that plays for a team that had to steal its identity from a college team and got sued for it…

    SeaGulls…one year dynasty….

  60. Philly fans are miserable people. But Clowney deserves their ire more than anyone!

    I’d like to see Clowney go to Cleveland to become part of the malcontent losers. Him and Myles Garret could cry together.

  61. Ask Zack Greinke about Yankee fans.
    Ask Joe Bauer about Raiders fans.
    Ask Bryan Stow about Dodgers fans.
    Ask Cowboys fans why they egged on a deranged man to shoot a Patriot’s fan after a Cowboy’s loss (he pulled the trigger).

    I’ll take throwing snowballs at Santa any day.

  62. If that hit would have happened against Aaron Rodgers, Clowney would have been penalized, fined, and at least a 4 game suspension.

  63. Clowney’s hit was dirty. The tale is in the tape. HOwever the fact remains that hate for Philly trumps all. I am an Eagles fan but I sometimes do cringe when I go to games and see how some of the fanbase acts… Philly has some of the most passionate fans but sometimes they take the whole “no one likes us and we don’t care” thing too far and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. I do think this creates a general anti-Philly bias. Someone else pointed out that if that hit were on Brady or Brees then Clowney would have been penalized and i’m no conspiracy theorist but I have to agree with that one.

  64. I love the Viking troll ARod(in his collarbone) is taking shots at the Eagles when his handle is a comment on breaking Aaron Rodgers collarbone.

    Viking fans disrespectfully came into Philly and messed with the Rocky statue among other things, and then expected us to be like, “That’s ok, desecrate our city, we are all good.”. Um, no. That’s some bs. Some Eagles fans went over the line for sure, but you had to expect a reaction.

  65. Don’t try to change the narrative Clowney. You followed Wentz to the ground and drilled him in the head. Sports fan are passionate but you’re a cheap shot artist.

    ______________

    And this solidifies it… these idiots pride themselves on it.

  67. DK Metcalf is a humble Nice young man.

    So when I saw him waving bye bye to all the Philly fans at the end after the game-winning catch and then give them all the peace-out sign I knew they had been yelling horrible things at him all night.

    Philly fans do not believe in Karma.

  68. Tell Wentz to SLIDE, all of his injuries occurred as a runner DIVING FORWARD!!!!!!!!!!
    Eagle fans are the WORST by far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  69. Don’t west coast fans kill each other? Don’t misbehave in their house. I once saw a vikings fan get beers thrown at him at the link. I asked him what he did. “I gave the fans the middle finger for a picture, and then the launched beers at me.” Smh.

  70. The Philly fans hate Clowney. The Eagles lose to the Seahawks. So what else is new? They hate Sidney Crosby too. They lose to the Penguins. So what else is new? If these two players were on the Eagles and Flyers respectively, they’d build statues of them in the City of Brotherly Love. So what else is new?

  71. Yet Eagles were screaming at Howie Roseman a few months ago to sign Clowney….They were on talk radio complaining how they would’ve easily given up whatever Seattle did to get him….

  72. I’m a season ticket holder at the Linc and I treat fans of all teams with respect. Come to cheer for the visiting team? No problem. Meanwhile I have to listen to Chiefs fans make throw up noises during my favorite player’s Eagles HOF halftime speech. Come up with something new besides throwing batteries at a skinny Santa or cheering Michael Irvin getting inhured. That stuff was like 30 years ago.

  73. It’s funny because they will act like it’s not true and deny it. Besides the snowball thing at Santa which is overblown because Santa was drunk and stumbling around. They are the same fans who got mad when JD Drew refused to sign with Phillies when drafted and threw batteries at him. Most will act like a Philly tough guy born and bred when they are all from white suburbia like Bucks, Berks and Montgomery County or worse yet Jersey. Besides there wanna be tough guy attitudes they will read any sports article and make it true. We heard it all this year from Eagles are getting Von Miller, Eagles are getting Clowney. To some of my personal favorites. Eagles are gonna get 2 first round picks for Nick Foles. Not only did you not get 2 or even 1 first round pick You got nothing at all for him. There was also Did you hear the Eagles sent their attorneys to Detroit to get Calvin Johnson out of his old contract and bring him out of retirement. Then there was 3 years ago when they would grill Cowboy fans about Dak not throwing the ball more than 10 yards and say Wentz will never be that way and refused to admit that that was Wentz throws all year screen pass after screen pass after check down after check down. But nothing beats the all time best of whenever a fan of another team would laugh at them and bring up our teams SB wins their favorite line was Your Living in the Past. Now these are fans that until they finally won ONE almost 3 years ago would literally try to convince you that they did. They won some BS Championship before the Super Bowl was invented. Now what are they doing talking about the past.

  74. That’s too funny. Clowney made a point of reminding the haters that he takes out the Philadelphia QB every time he plays them. He doesn’t discriminate. He’s just trying to be friends. LOLOL

  75. Clowney cheap-shots Wentz in a playoff game and this is how PFT covers it? By reporting Clowney trashing Eagles fans?

  76. Cheap shot to the back of quarterbacks head lying face down and the fans don’t like you???? I don’t understand why?

  77. Hey Clowney : This isn’t about the fans it’s about your dirty hit. Nice try ,you will be fined and suspended.

    ————–

    And if they did sign Clowney, he’d be talking about what great fans the Eagles have.

  79. That’s a fact! The nastiest, most hateful, low class-no class fans. I wasn’t absolutely sure of that until they showed the proved it true at the NFC Championship game a couple years ago. I don’t hate Eagle fans, just hate their actions, and just stating fact.

    It’s a shame that people don’t understand the Philly fan. If they took the time to learn about the Philly fan they would understand. Philly fans are the most knowledgeable hands down, the most loyal hands down. The fact that they will go all out to allow the morons to say these hateful things about them, proves they get it.

    ————–

    I have never read such a nonsensical paragraph in my life. Philly fan?

  81. As a Viking fan I dont mind the Eagles but I heard that during/after the NFC Championship fans peed on viking fans…..stay classy Philly. I am sure Mr. Clowney got thing tossed at him. BTW I love the movie Invincible, watched it several times..

    Go Vikes!

  82. The NFL and the Eagles organization are complicit in the level of offensive behavior that has become normalized in Philadelphia. They all laugh about it. Visiting fans really cant go there to see a game because its literally not safe. Thats insane. The organization should make it clear that assault and harassment is not acceptable (sad that we have to say that) and then have a system where fans can text a seat number to security and someone will come observe whats going on and remove people who are out of control.

  83. He’s right about those fans, but, he should be fined and suspended for that hit. I like the guy, he’s really good when he decides to play hard, but that hit was wrong.

  84. Ok, let’s get a few things straight. I’m tired of hearing these stories out of context.

    1). There is a big difference between fan bases in Philly. Phillies fans – friendly. Flyers fans – friendly, Sixer’s fans – friendly, Big 5 basketball fans – friendly.
    Eagles fans are not a representation of the other teams in the city.

    2). Did Eagles throw snowballs at Santa? Yes. Snow left on seats at a game in the 1960’s at the old Veteran’s stadium (think Roman Coliseum). The Link (new stadium) is much more corporate, with still a few bad eggs but WAY better than the old stadium.

    Don’t wear an opposing teams jersey, stay in the lower level, and you’ll have a great time. If you go to the cheap seats in the upper level, you get what you pay for…just like in any NFL city.

  85. They are also the only fans stupid enough to Worship a FAKE Boxer. Sonny Liston? No, Joe Frazier? Nope, Bernard Hopkins? Don’t think so..They worship a fake Rocky Balboa..So dumb

  86. No one said a word about the hit until wentz when in the tent bc in live time it looked like a normal football play…which it was….then he went to the back and eagle fan got mad….then he was ruled out and then eagle fan got madder……and then they lost and now they were really mad so it became a huge deal bc they and the philly media were trying to justify their failure and why wentz keeps getting hurt…..the guy may not be injury prone but he is prone to injury bc he does not protect himself…..eagles lost…move on….you always have the luckiest sb in the history of the nfl to fall back on.

  87. ….and Seattle has a history of unlikeable DL as well (unfortunately one of them actually played for Philly for a year before we sent his backside packing off to Bill in NE- who sent him to Dallas right where he belonged…another classless team much like Seattle). Needless to say the oft-injured Clown show wont be playing for Philly ..EVER.

  88. So don’t take your kids to see their favorite teams wearing that teams Jersey but they think it’s OK to wear theirs to our teams stadiums? Makes sense. And don’t give me BS about as long as your respectful you’ll be fine because I literally was at a Eagles vs Browns game and a fan wearing a Cowboys jersey not even playing was jumped in the stands by 5 guys. Who cares that they are rivals it’s a game that your not part of except paying their salaries. Phillies yeah great anyone wanna watch the little girl get thrown up on by an adult man?

  89. You can be very passionate fans still be the worst with terrible reputations. The worst that can happen to a team is indifference like how fans feel towards the Dolphins and Chargers. The most loyal fans are probably the Browns as they’ve stuck with the team through almost two decades of incompetence with a terrible owner. Eagles fans have a well deserved reputation as just terrible fans to each other, other fans, and opponents. No respect for the game. Remember when they cheered Michael Irvin getting badly injured?

  90. I know many NFL fans don’t even realize there is a team in Jacksonville, Florida, But in my experience Jaguars fans are, by far, the worst.

  91. If Wentz didn’t want to get hit, he should have slid. If he goes for extra yards, he’s gonna get hit. Yeah, Clowney could have just pushed him down, but this isn’t 2 hand touch. It’s big boy football, and if Philly fans don’t like it, they can always watch soccer…

  92. Did not like or agree with the dirty hit on Wentz. That being said. They are a group of wanna be tough guys everyone’s a Balboa loud mouth cheese steak eating wouldn’t want your daughter dating group of weasels.

  93. Been to philly several times. Treated better there than:

    Oakland
    Dallas
    Seattle
    New York
    Washington
    New England

    That hit was dirty, he will be fined as there’s no way the league can run from that one and in fact he should be suspended. Clearly led with the helmet and followed him to the ground no matter what speed you watch it in. Disgusting hit by a player who has been overhyped his entire career. Somebody will take this guy out. I hope it’s a fair hit but one that he’ll remember.

    You must be a special kind of stupid. They whooped the crap out of the Patriots. Lucky for them they scored all of those points. And if you can’t admit that hit was filthy you are seriously serenaded.

  95. Queue the haters from people that know Clowney is classless, pretend they have never used vulagar language, booed, or done anything distasteful, cheer Wentz getting injured, generalize people, bring up memories from 1960 of a drunk Santa, lies that have been debunked multiple times (not that facts matter), forget that murders that happened in other stadiums (as if booing Santa in 1960 for being drunk is worse than stabbing people), coaches attacked on the field (MIB device apparently got used on you all there too) , I could keep going and going. Yawn, we don’t care. Just easier to call you sheep. Make you feel better about yourselves? Thank god I’m not like you.

  96. Born and raised there. I’ve been to countless games in Philly and other places for over 40 years. I have never, ever thrown anything at anyone. I’ve never been engaged in verbal profanity at a game. He is not lying. The behavior of some “people” is abhorrent. Here’s the thing…it’s like that everywhere. I am not one of those fans. I’ve been threatened in Washington and Chicago. I have witnessed and heard the most vile things said by Eagles fans everywhere. The main constant is that it always involves white fans.

  97. Dirtiest hit of the NFL season. In college he’s penalized and ejected for targeting. This is SPEARING – which was supposedly outlawed. And it’s spearing with the crown of the helmet – to another player’s helmet. Clowney (appropriate name) immediately went on the offensive when criticized, in an effort to try to minimize the damage (major fine, suspension) – and it’s worked, as most of the national media sheep have not come down on him as hard as they should be. Can you imagine if this was done to Brees, Brady, Rodgers? It would have been the lead story on every sports show Sunday Night – and still today. For some reason it’s OK to do this to Carson Wentz and the Eagles? You have to ask yourself why – jealousy? his clean image?

    When future HOF Jason Peters confronted Clowney after they play, telling him it was a dirty hit, Clowney laughed and said “My bad” and walked away. Sound like a guy who felt remorse for something that happened Bang-bang”, by accident. Carroll preaches this stuff – and Clowney followed through.
    Hoping the NFL comes down HARD on Clowney. A major fine would be nice, but he deserves a one-game suspension. Let Seattle play a playoff game without him the way the Eagles had to play a playoff game without Wentz.

    Otherwise, rooting for major karma on Sunday in GB. Clowney getting carted-off early with knee injury would be sweet.

    For some reason being the first team to need a courtroom and jail cell doesn’t say we have good fans

    Mile high moron, go back to the 90’s where Vet stadium still existed. It’s called Lincoln Financial field and the atmosphere is incredibly laid back as only rich people can afford tickets there now. So funny how much you fans will ignore facts just to keep up with your stupid narrative. No wonder Trump is well liked here.

  99. Philly, the only place in the NFL where the whole stadium cheers as loud as they can when an opposing player is injured. Then, they boo if/when that person gets up on their own. Micheal Irvin lay motionless on the field for 15 minutes and the whole stadium cheered as loud as they could. It was such a disgrace that the Philly mayor published a full page apology on the front page of the Dallas Morning News. I worked at the old Texas stadium, and every Eagles game was terrible. Grown men being nasty to women and kids and proud of it, laughing. Not just a few, MOST. So, to Iggles fans, I say ha ha ha. Your boy got hit, cry about it all off season. Next year, we will sweep you like we did in 2018. You will be in the cellar next year, mark it. Where you belong.

  100. btw–to the person who claims most Eagles fans are ok, just a few bad eggs. Nonsense. I have worn my Cowboys jersey to many stadiums, I live here in DC and been to many games. Dealt with very few idiots. Even after we beat the skins once, my buddy and I were in the parking lot waiting out traffic and meekly went over to a big group of skins fans to offer to buy of few of their beers–they gave us a little grief and then said “eff that, put your money away, reach in and get a couple of beers dudes”. Like many fans around the league. Of course, not ALL Philly fans are immature morons, but MOST are, and they are damn proud of it. I have seen it too many times. Dallas would have to double up stadium security when Philly came to town. I once saw 5 grown men in their 40s terrorizing 2 women and their kids, calling them terrible names, blowing cigarette smoke at them (you could not smoke inside the stadium then, but in the galley way). I had asked them to knock it off and showed them where they could smoke–of course, they got all up in my face, gonna whoop ass,etc. I said nothing, but went and got the police, long story short, they were thrown out, still in early 3rd quarter, in disgrace. I mean, what kind of idiots are you? I grew up around the meanest of rednecks, none of them/us at 40+ years would pull this kind of stunt. Admit it, most are the worst, and they are proud of it.

    No one said a word about the hit until wentz when in the tent bc in live time it looked like a normal football play…which it was….then he went to the back and eagle fan got mad….then he was ruled out and then eagle fan got madder……and then they lost and now they were really mad so it became a huge deal bc they and the philly media were trying to justify their failure and why wentz keeps getting hurt…..the guy may not be injury prone but he is prone to injury bc he does not protect himself…..eagles lost…move on….you always have the luckiest sb in the history of the nfl to fall back on.

    You must be a special kind of stupid. They whooped the crap out of the Patriots. Lucky for them they scored all of those points. And if you can’t admit that hit was filthy you are seriously serenaded.

    I see that you are still very angry about the loss…..it will be ok…..you can go watch the dvd of the luckiest sb win in the history of the nfl to make you feel better.

  102. I have enjoyed the never ending crying by these fans over this situation. Jesus, these kids cry and whine more than POTUS does. It’s everyone else’ fault! Clowney robbed us of a certain Super Bowl!! He did it on purpose!! Freakin hilarious (your whining and crying, not his injury). Keep it up kids, cause karma came to getcha!!!

    Wow. You are too cool. I am so so jealous. I wish I had the courage to go call the police. Then I could go on the board and brag about what a tough guy I am.

  104. I wish you title this response
    “C’mon Maaaan”.
    Eagles fans are amazing. We are the only team with 10 to 12 home games per year, just listen to any live broadcast when they do well, the Philly faithful cheer louder than the opposing fans.
    We lived through the horrible sixties and seventies when ‘Amercas’ team beat us 18 of 20 games and sold the VET out. People talk about RFK bouncing during Redskins games (which is great), but the entire South Broad Street roared and rocked from the ground to the 700 level. Regardless of weather, packed and roaring. The linc is no different, and we bring it to every stadium we play.

    Game in L.A., we pack up and show up. Game in NJ, yeah jersey, turns to a sea of green. Fedex Field? Should be renames South Philly Field-60 to 70% Green when the Eagles come to town…
    There are Eagles Nest bars in every NFL city, packed to the gills to show a birds game.

    Dallas, many years is 40-60 or 60-40 split between the those really nive Texas folk, and the Philly faithful newly arrived to see the Birds play in Jerrys museum filled with those artifact Lombardi’s.
    ….
    So, and I mean this with any due respect (none due that hit Sunday-proving last year was no fluke either)
    ….
    “Child Please”

  105. Those that are attacking Philly fans for throwing snowballs at Santa…IN 1968, need to get a life. That was over 50 years ago and most of those fans are long gone.

    Philly fans are passionate about their team. They were furious at Clowney for intentionally spearing Wentz, knocking him out of the game.

    If the QB was Brady or Rodgers, Clowney would have been disqualified.

    I absolutely without a shadow of doubt love the reputation us Eagle fans have. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Here in Philly, that’s how we’re wired and are proud of it.
    ______________

    And this solidifies it… these idiots pride themselves on it.

    ——————————-

    Yes, because that commenter is the spokesperson for 5 million people. You guys hear stereotypes and stories from a minority of the fan base, a minority which every fan base has. Since they entrench themselves in stereotypes and narratives, then I can only imagine what some of these commenters thoughts are about other races and religions.

  107. The Philly fans are the worst in the league, IMHO. They are the most bitter fans in the NFL, even though the Browns fans are just behind them. When Philly fans threw snowballs at Santa while he was on a quad riding around the old Veteran’s stadium, I lost what little respect I had for them. That is a pretty good indication the Eagles fans are bitter and angry. It certainly isn’t Santa’s fault that the Eagles have a losing legacy. The one Lombardi in their case isn’t just isn’t enough for Philly fans (and the Eagles are lucky to have that one for sure).

    I will say that initially I thought the hit on Wentz by Clowney was clean at normal speed, but upon seeing it slowed down, it looked more dirty (and I am a Cowboys fan).

    The takeaway is this: I never like to see players get injured, but Wentz is made of glass. The guy just can’t stay on the field, and that is a fact. He isn’t physically tough enough to stay in this league long-term, and will very likely have a shortened career. Philly may have wasted a lot of money on Wentz, as he just can’t stay on the field regardless of his talent.

  108. The definition of “worst” is needed. Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks have fans that are rabid, devoted, loud and yes, obnoxiously devoted to the teams. Many boo the visiting players coming out of the tunnels, scream when trying to disrupt opposing offenses and target players to hate.

    I don’t like to label 69K fans in a stadium for relatively few fans who go passed any semblances of proper fan protocol, (Throwing items, making vulgar threats, fighting, stabbings, etc…) anymore than a team gets labeled for illegal, improper action undertaken by a single player on that team.

  109. “I absolutely without a shadow of doubt love the reputation us Eagle fans have. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Here in Philly, that’s how we’re wired and are proud of it.”

    This is but one example of how moronic those fans are…actually proud that they’re obnoxious clowns. Philthy city with terrible human beings for “fans”.

  110. @ Eagles_Nest,

    “Dallas, many years is 40-60 or 60-40 split between the those really nive Texas folk, and the Philly faithful newly arrived to see the Birds play in Jerrys museum filled with those artifact Lombardi’s.”

    Firstly, you may want to spell your insults correctly.

    Secondly, there is NO WAY the Eagles fans were anywhere close to 50% in Arlington, as you stated. That is ridiculous.

    Lastly, “artifact Lombardi’s”? Regardless of what you think, all teams have a legacy of winning or losing. You can’t conveniently start the Lombardi count at 2017 as much as you would like to, bro. Your Eagles have been perennial chokers up to 2017 for decades. That can’t be changed, nor can it be changed that the Cowboys have 4 more Lombardi’s in their case. Heck, even the Skins and the Giants have more Lombardi’s in their cases. The truth just hurts sometimes.

    …………
    Really? We’re you furious at Derrick Barnett for knocking out Jamaal Williams this year on a late after the whistle helmet to helmet hit or making excuses

  112. I never met an Eagles fan that was even worth punching in the face…That’s pretty much all you need to know

  113. The hit was dirty being reviewed now the Vikings, Seahawks and Eagles are probably the dirtiest teams in the NFL , I don’t know what the penalty would be maybe a fine but it was mission accomplished take out the QB any means possible.

  114. That was a dirty hit and I am
    Not a Philly fan.. How it was not flagged I have no idea.
    He was going down and Clowney went down low to get him.
    I hope he is fined, he should be.

  115. What did he expect? Are the fans supposed to throw rose petals as he walks out? He’s a dirty player who tried to take out Foles and successfully took out Wentz.

  116. ” Mr. ” Clowney is dabbling in the old fine art of deflecting. The ol’ ” I know what you are, but what am I? “. He has been a goofy slacker since he was @ South Carolina. And hitting a player down by contact helmet-to-helmet is a FOUL!

  117. Wouldn’t it have been grand to watch TV coverage of the fans in an Oakland Raiders-Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl? Never gonna happen, but the thought is amusing – or would be for everyone but the fans involved.

    Unfortunately I’m a falcons fan. But first and foremost a football fan. I’ve been to that stadium in falcons gear 3 times without incident. Lastly if you are a football fan, go listen to any Tom Brady/BB interview and they have both stated several times in interviews they were out coached and out played. You have zero football knowledge. It must pain you to know you’re trolling on here without having any info to back up your statements. Actually I should say comment, because statement would require there to be some validity to the “statement”.

    Happy trolling!

  119. If we make you feel unwanted, disliked and uncomfortable when you come to our stadium as an opposing player, we have done our job.

    If you come away with the perception that we are rudely intolerant of opposing players and opposing team colors, that is our intent.

    When you take cheap, dirty shots at not one but two of quarterbacks, a player with an IQ higher than their jersey number would expect to experience unbridled belligerence.

    And, if you resign with Seattle, you will never have experienced true belligerence until you return to the Lince next year (you’re on our home schedule). We hope to see you then.

  120. Not a Clowney fan, but he hit the nail on the head there. I was talking with a friend a few days ago and he was crowing about the Patriots loss to the Titans and saying the end of Tom Brady’s career will be the greatest day of his life. This is even after the Eagles beat the Patriots two years ago (though admittedly, the Patriots won one in the interim). It was like he was more excited about someone else’s team’s negative than his own team’s positive. At least the Patriots losing gave him something to still be happy about after his own team was one and done… again.

  121. Packers beat the Seahawks by double digits this weekend and CLOWNey will likely not finish the game.

    Book it.

  122. I think we’ve known for awhile now. Witnessed first hand at Packer game this year. It goes back to boo bird days when Mike Luzinski was mired in a slump. New to me, never knew fans could boo their own.

    Whooped the crap out of the Patriots? Dude Brady put 500 yards and it came down to a jump ball in the endzone. Must be a really special kind of stupid to call someone else a special kind of stupid?

  124. Do the people around this country actually think Philly fans go to Eagle games with batteries ? Yea, they threw snowballs at Santa and Jimmy Johnson. Big deal. There were no stones or batteries in the snow at Franklin field or the Vet. As far as Clowney goes. He’s overrated and hurt at least half of each season and when playing he is above suspicion as being a “dirty” player. Oh, and there are no stones or batteries at Lincoln Financial field but have a snow storm and there is some left in the stadium, guarantee someone will get hit by a snowball.

  125. He’s right, Philly fans are the worst! They literally tore seats out of US Bank stadium in 2017. No fan base with less class.

  126. Amazing how many Philly fans are in here like “Yeah we’re garbage people and proud of it.” I have no opinion on whether or not some hit was dirty, but these people are just the worse.

  127. you’re all a bunch of morons, philly fans aren’t as different than fans in any other east coast city. I’ve been to all the stadiums and it’s no better or no worse. It’s funny how much of you whine about the media because your orange god president tells you to but the media is who perpetuates all of this. Boston, NY, I’ll count DC…it’s all the same. And as for clowney, boooooooo hoooo, they don’t like me, waahhhhhhhhhh. When you take cheap shots on the home teams players, they’re going to hate you, straight up. Why don’t you worry
    more about being as overrated a tin-man as you are than who likes or dislikes you. It’s also funny that he thinks philly fans hate HIM, we hate everyone and everyone hates us…the difference is WE DON’T CARE. Seriously though, you spear Wentz in the back of his head and ruin his chance to compete on a cheap shot and you want us to cheer or be indifferent towards you? BOO F’ING WHO….damn baby

  130. Wentz was out of his pocket. He was carrying the ball like running-back. So this isn’t a QB hit. This is exactly how you’d stop a RB if you are defender. Football still is a contact sport and often violent..

  131. Funny how a Seattle player can say this. Seattle fans cheered as they had to cart off Navaro Bowman due to a torn ACL. Then cheered again when Beathard went down with an injury.

    Either you are lying about being an eagles fan. (And if u r i dont blame you)

    Or you are an angry falcons fan bc of no chic filet at home games on sunday.

    Either way u seem kinda lame……hilarious.

  134. Every time someone brings up how terrible Philly fans are, people come out of the woodwork to say “Every team has bad fans” or the “majority of them are very nice.” That’s not the point. Yes, if you walk into another stadium wearing enemy colors, there are pockets of people or persons every 20 yards where you might want to avoid eye contact or move a little out of the way.. In Philly it’s BARRICADES of fans throwing things and saying the worst things on Earth. They even are proud of their slogan “Everyone hates us and we don’t care.” They threaten violence against women, they mock elderly people, they flat out assault other fans.. and in most cities it’s 5% of the fanbase. In Philly, it’s easily 20%. Stop sticking up for this element and calling it passion. There should be zero tolerance for these hooligans.

  135. Snowy roadways in Philly won’t be a problem this winter as their salty tears will help clear the roads. Don’t worry Philly once the draft gets here you guys have 3 first round picks. Thanks to those two first rounders you told everyone you were getting for Foles…Oh wait…You didn’t get 2…Did you get one? I think you got nothing just like we were all saying. It’s OK just play that Rocky music and go crazy for a fake person. Much like your idol Rocky Balboa you are all brain damaged. What’s the next moronic statue to be worshiped in Philly? Mike Vicks dogs, Bill Cosby. And for all of you Philly fans hoping Karma happens for Seattle…It already happened to you, Karma came back to you for Derrick Barnett knocking out Jamaal Williams after the whistle. Remember when you guys were telling everyone “The Eagles are getting Clowney”…LMAO because Clowney got you instead

    He’s absolutely right. As far as getting physical, the Philly fans are the worse fans in professional sports. When you throw batteries at kids, spit in their faces, push them down, then talk about a 90 year old superfan like they did, you deservingly get that label. The sad part is, nobody there cares, or just to dumb to understand.

    ———————————————

    Wow! You sure threw out a lot of accusations. Do you care to back them up with facts? And by the way, “or just to dumb to understand” basically tells us to consider the source. I judge a person’s intelligence on spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure.
