Eagle fans get a bad rap

   People still bring up th3 snowball incident which many of today’s fan had nothing to do with

I will have to disagree with you big time.

I went to the Colts vs the Eagles game in Philly in 2010. 

We lost 26-24  Philly had Vick then.

During that game I had beer and food thrown on me and was hit in the back of the neck by a rock on my way out. 

I can take the names and the dirty looks but to be attacked like I was it was very bad. 

So IMO the bad rap is well deserved. There was a reason they had a jail cell in the stadium.

That is not the entire fan base

 

True enough, but it does color perception.  Even if this is just a problem that the eagles are allowing people to do this while other NFL teams have cracked down on it with better security . . . it's still somewhat telling.  

 

I just have yet to hear anything good about Eagles fans in comparison to how they treat visiting fans at their stadium.  

 

I know that's not scientific but it's sort of a "where there is smoke there is fire" sort of deal for me.

We swept the north so dont feel too badly.  You"re still the class of the division. My enrire family is comprised packers fans so although this win is sweet for me, it is with humility and understanding of disappointment that I accept it.  Every 4 years we celebrate "civil war".  Lol "brother against brother".  I cant rub it in tho.  Love 'em too much.

I hear ya’.  Am in the same boat with two older brothers.  We did a chat yesterday during the game talking trash, lol.  First half was tough, but I told them we do well in the 2nd half after making adjustments.  Seeing as it went to overtime I couldn’t trash them after it was over.  It was a battle just like I thought it would be.  And, yeah, I love them too much, too!

Agree.  My son lives up in the area and he is a lifelong Giants fan.  Says Eagles stadium fans are some of the worst.  Don’t ever go there wearing your colors.

Congratulations and hats off to you guys on your win. This loss stings I have to admit. I admit those holding calls were pretty Bad that pushed you out of FG range. We were up 14 and blew it. We really didn’t deserve to win this game. You guys won the turnover battle including the most crucial one that MVS fumbled away. I think we will lose in the 1st round of the playoffs again if we get there. This game is totally reminiscent to the 2012 game in Indy against you guys. Anyway there was some bad holding calls on you guys but you deserved the win anyway. You never gave up down 14 and I could feel the momentum shift in the 2nd half. Best wishes to you guys on the rest of your season. You Colt fans from this interaction and the one 4 years ago are good people.

 

I'm not sure about that.  Packers are really good.  It wouldn't surprise me if they won it all this year in all honesty.

Did some of your fellow “fans” threaten MVS after the loss?

 

@Arodgers12

Not that I’ve heard but we didn’t deserve to win anyway. You guys dominated us in the 2nd half. Those holding calls were bad too. You guys do have our number it seems.

Best of luck the rest of the year; I really don’t think the Packers are in that dire of straits, just taking care of the football and maybe not playing dime every single defensive snap and you’re looking at top three NFC team. 

 

If this makes you feel any better, one of my biggest prides as a Colts fan is telling people that the Packers have never won in Indy; that’s not an insult, but rather an indication of how well-respected the Packers are. You have no idea how cool it is to beat the Packers, because...well...they’re the Packers!!!

 

P.S.- Please beat Tennessee for us! We took care of the Lions, Bears, and Vikings, so I think it’s only fair....

The Titans will crush us. We don’t play well against physical teams like them.

It's not just that. . . anyone that I've ever run into who has been a visiting fan there has said it was bad.  Most say people throw things at them during the game.  

In Colt fans opinions would we do that?

    • I haven’t read what has been said so far in this thread at all.  But I said it before forgot which thread.  I said we go yard after Jordan Love if the Packers decide to stick with Rodgers for a lot longer then anticipated depending on how he performed this season etc..  Then I suggested if Packers front office and coaches don’t like what they’ve seen or if Rodgers doesn’t like what’s going on in Greenbay and wants to get out.  I didn’t exactly say it that way but that’s what I meant lol.  I’ve even said I know this is a pipe dream and other users have replied to me saying I play too much Madden video game.  Well it seems like Rodgers want out after what happened in that NFC title game.  I know again it’s a pipe dream and maybe Rodgers is just mad and like any normal human being is just venting out.  After all is said and done Rodgers and the Packers may just work it out and move on.  But I’m praying I’m wishing if I had the extra cash I would probably even go buy a lamp just to run on it and make  wish to my genie that really doesn’t exist.  But please please somehow Ballard please get us AARON RODGERS please Ballard PLEASE!!!!    I know he is 38 years old but by the way I see him playing I can see him easily giving us the Colts a great prime peak performance for 5 years.  Within that 5 years it’ll cost us a lot of capital like draft picks and salary cap etc..  But I think we will still be able to say after 2 to 3 years we can then draft a QB to learn from Rodgers.  By then I don’t think Rodgers would be mad if we drafted a replacement.  We would instantly become a SB contender for the next 5 years!  I just think this trade/move would be great for the Colts I don’t think we would be in salary cap hell or draft picks wise we would also be okay.  We wouldn’t have to go full rebuild mode after Rodgers is retired or too old to play etc...  The Colts would be in a great transition to a new QB/era after Aaron Rodgers.  I just think it makes sense and but also not salary cap but the main issue is what would it cost the Colts to get Aaron here is what it boils down too.  Let me take that back it can destroy the Colts for years and years if we given up way way too much draft pick wise.  So yeah let me calm down and relax and think bigger picture before the pipe dream!!
    • What makes you say this? He is viewed as a top 10 DE and a 2nd round prospect from what I have seen. What are you claiming?
    • I'm 35. I wouldn't say age is the issue here.   To the bolded, you're being pessimistic and despondent for the sake of it. We have what is considered to be one of the best GM's and FO's in the NFL, and as fans that know a sliver of what they know, we should trust our FO to make the right hiring decisions.   That's awesome and everything, but your overall analogy just doesn't make sense. You're saying that having success in coaching in the CFL is equivalent to your success as a child Pokemon TCG champion, with regards to projecting success in the NFL. The fundamental issue here is that one involves skill sets and experience that directly relate to a job at the NFL level (hint: it's not Pokemon). There's some differences in the CFL game, but overall, someone that has proven to be a great offensive mind in the CFL still brings those strong skillsets to the NFL. Please don't bring these false equivalencies into the discussion just because you don't recognize a coaching staff hire and haven't shown the ability to understand what constitutes relevant experience and what doesn't.   One phrase to think about: Circle of Control   As fans, we have ZERO control over the coaches and players that leave. People have their own ways of understanding and rationalizing events that occur. Not everyone will emote them the same way and you can't expect them to. I was REALLY gutted when Sirianni was hired away, because he was one of my favorite coaches on the staff, but I understand that there's only 32 HC jobs and it's rare to be offered one of those positions. He was doing what was best for him and while I was disappointed to lose him, my response isn't going to be to come on here and rain down doom and gloom.   Please don't take others not responding in the manner you do as a sign that nobody else cares as much as you do. That's extremely egotistical and presumptive of you and quite disrespectful to the fanbase as a whole, but specifically to the thousands of fans that actively post and participate on this forum.   You may consider yourself to be the measuring stick for how fans should react, but honestly, you tend to be an outlier on the overreaction/pessimistic side of the spectrum, not the mean.
    • Yea, you keep doing you buddy...   Maybe Jordan has learned how to throw into a net by now...
