Eagles linebacker Casey Matthews has had a rough season. Over the past few games, he’s served mainly a special teams role. He’s been bounced from outside linebacker to inside linebacker to eventually the bench. The rookie was given a chance to start multiple times this season but hasn’t been able to put it together. Unfortunately, Eagles fans took note of the fact that he has struggled. What’s even more unfortunate is their decision to take it out on his family.
“I’m trying to,” Matthews said when asked about winning over Philly fans. “It’s hard. One of the earlier games, they harassed my family and made my fiancee cry. It’s tough. It’s frustrating. That’s just how they are here. If you win they love you, so I guess we’ve just got to turn things around and just start winning again.”
