Eagles LB Casey Matthews Says Fans Harrassed Family, Made Fiancee Cry

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.”

Does that surprise anyone?  These are the same fans who were chanting for their head coach to be fired just a couple weeks ago.  They also allegedly threw beer at the Giants bus earlier in the season.  Simply put, Eagles fans have had enough.  Many analysts picked them to win the NFC this season, which makes it even more difficult that their season has spiraled out of control.
It’s sad to say, but Matthews’ fiancee and family learned a valuable lesson.  Fans are ruthless.  If you’re going to sport your fiancee’s or uncle’s gear when you go to a game, you need to be prepared to hear it from the fans when things are going poorly.
