Fan has a Philadelphia Eagles ‘Mrs. Tebow’ Tim Tebow jersey

Tim Tebow PatriotsTim Tebow does not play for the Philadelphia Eagles. He never has and he probably never will, but you know how fans can be. Or should I say, you know how Tebowmaniacs can be.

Tebowmania has quieted down a bit since his failed season with the New York Jets, but his dedicated fans remain as enthusiastic as ever. We have seen customized jerseys with Tebow’s number on them and the name “Jesus” on the back, but at least the jersey was from a team Tebow actually played for. The same can’t be said of this Eagles fan:

That’s one way to show your allegiance to Tebow and the Eagles, albeit one that makes absolutely no sense. Hey, I guess it’s original.

Eagles fan got a ‘Fire Andy’ Reid tattoo on his butt (Picture)

Andy Reid was a good coach for many years in Philadelphia, but his final few years were difficult for fans to endure. One particular Eagles fan now has a permanent reminder of how bad things got under Reid.

On Dec. 17, three days after the Eagles lost at home 34-13 to the Cincinnati Bengals to fall to 4-10, a Twitter user who goes by @De_Bow72 sent a tweet promising to get a “Fire Andy” tattoo on his butt under one condition.

“If this gets 500 retweets I legitimately will get “Fire Andy” tattooed on my ass,” the user wrote.

You know how the rest of the story goes. In less than 24 hours, the fan’s tweet was retweeted over 500 times.

The fan actually made good on his promise, got the tattoo, and posted a picture of it on Twitter last week.

The baffling part about all this is that it was pretty much common knowledge that Reid was a dead man walking for the better part of the season. It was no secret that the Eagles weren’t going to stand for missing the playoffs again given all the money they have spent over the past few seasons, and Philly was out of the hunt from about Week 10 on. Still, the fan blamed Reid’s poor coaching for his new ink.

“Andy Reid owes me an apology. If he didn’t coach like such s— this year I’d have a tattooless ass,” the fan wrote.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time a crazy sports fan has decided to express his enthusiasm by getting a tattoo on his ass. People like this Mavericks fan and this Texas A&M fan are far too easy to come by.

H/T Crossing Broad

Eagles fans have resorted to wearing paper bags over their heads (Pictures)

Philadelphia Eagles fans seem to have reached their boiling point with their team, and in particular head coach Andy Reid. After a 3-1 start to a 2012 season that many expected to be a successful one, the Eagles have lost seven straight games. Michael Vick has been sidelined with a concussion, but he had played horribly before going down anyway. Sitting at 3-8 and poised to miss the playoffs once again, Eagles fans feel that now is as good a time as ever to break out the paper bags.

For the third straight week (at least) on Monday night, Eagles fans were wearing paper bags over their heads and holding up signs encouraging the team to fire Reid. One fan held up a particularly insulting shirt about Reid three weeks ago during the Eagles loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Jeremiah Trotter tells Jason Babin to stop worrying about ‘vile’ Eagles fans

Jeremiah Trotter took aim at Jason Babin for complaining about the lack of support from Eagles fans.

Babin, who is in his third season with Philadelphia, ripped Eagles fans for being disloyal and chanting “vile things” during the team’s home loss to the Falcons last weekend.

Trotter played eight seasons with the Eagles over three different stints. He thrived as a member of the organization, reaching the Pro Bowl four times during his career — all when he was with Philly. As a player who was successful with the team, he felt the need to set Babin straight.

Jason Babin rips Eagles fans for chanting ‘vile things’

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin took to Twitter on Tuesday to talk about loyalty. It was no coincidence, as the Eagles had just come off a 30-17 home loss at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons and the fans were understandably frustrated.

“LOYALTY: loy·al·ty: noun, plural loy·al·ties: The state or quality of being loyal; faithfulness to commitments or obligations,” Babin wrote. “There are 17 teams with the same record or worse than us. Thanks for being loyal fans…….We’ll get it right.”

What inspired the mini-rant? Babin says he heard Eagles fans chanting some horrible things at Andy Reid, the coaching staff and his teammates during Philly’s loss to Atlanta.

“Some of the most vile things I’ve ever heard,” Babin said according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Talking about people’s wives and kids and chanting them. I just thought there’s no place for that in the NFL.

It was upsetting that a few bad apples were chanting that kind of stuff. I don’t even want to repeat what I heard, it was that bad. And I’ve got a pretty high threshold for adult jokes.”

No wonder Matt Ryan’s family members thought it would be best to hide their identity while they cheered him on. Fans can be ruthless at times, and any team with high expectations that begins the year 3-4 should expect to hear some boos and negative chants. That being said, there’s no reason to talk about the families of players and coaches if the fans truly were doing that. Like the time Eagles fans reportedly made Casey Matthews’ family cry, that qualifies as crossing the line.

Matt Ryan’s family members reportedly hid their Falcons colors in Philadelphia

Philadelphia Eagles fans have a reputation for being pretty ruthless, and Matt Ryan’s family was prepared for that when they infiltrated Lincoln Financial Field to watch the Atlanta Falcons dominate the Eagles on Sunday. According to CBS Philly, Ryan had about 60 family members on hand to watch him throw for over 250 yards and three touchdowns. You just may not have known it by looking at them.

The Ryans, McGlincheys and Lougherys all concealed their Atlanta black-and-red colors, and their No. 2 jerseys. They know the way Philadelphia fans can be. But you couldn’t help but hear them Sunday each time Matt completed a pass and had the Falcons up, 14-0.

With 60 people in attendance, Ryan’s family basically had their own cheering section. Eagles fans would have had to be completely oblivious and/or inebriated to not know what was going on. While we would not rule that out, it’s probably safe to assume their identity was not completely concealed.

Eagles fans obviously aren’t the only ones who would make you think about hiding your identity, but considering they have been known to harrass the families of their own players you can never be too sure. We also saw the creative way in which they heckled Rex Ryan last season, so a little precaution from the Ryan family was probably a wise decision.

Hula hoop girl gives Philadelphia Eagles fans a distraction from 52-year championship drought

Yes, Eagles fans, there may be hope after all. Katie Sunshine is a professional hula hoop girl with a passion for anything and everything Philadelphia Eagles. Her tight-to-the-skin Eagles wardrobe includes team logo’d Uggs, which until now it was assumed only Tom Brady has been feminine enough to wear (BOOM!). Regardless, the Eagles need to get her on the payroll with a 1080 HD Video Camera, ASAP. Smoking hot and talented…unless she’s under 18, then she’s just talented.
