Have you ever noticed that players say they have the best fans? Have you ever noticed how not a single Cowboys players says that? The Cowboys might have the biggest fan base but it's also full of front runners and whiners. I'm sure there are plenty of teams who would pass. You behave like Saints fans when they stick a bag over their head. That behavior has proved quite effective too since they've won so many Super Bowls.
You've got to be kidding. I live in the Northeast and listen to Philly and NY sports radio. They're absolutely brutal fans to the point where players and coaches have even received death threads after poor outings. Are you even serious? The idiots have no clue about football and cheer when opposing players are hurt.

You don't need a headcount or a soundbite to know what kind of fans this team's got.
And, no, it's not the same everywhere. Our fans are a total embarrassment.
Don't put any of this on the fans for speaking their minds about an issue that's been going on around here for going on two decades. And then you act like we have some kind of entitlement attitude, as if we've done anything or won anything going on two decades now. I'll call bull**** on what your claiming and your post has absolutely no merit.
As we speak, NY fans are crucifying their franchise, first round drafted QB who took them to two straight AFC championship games just two short years ago (including his rookie season). Thy're brutal. They were clamoring, en mass, for Tebow earlier in this season. The Jets just fired their GM, again, just two years removed from 2 straight AFCCG's. In addition, Philly just crucified their HC who I think had the most wins in franchise history. It's a results oriented business.
In the mean time, you conveniently forget the frequent threads here linking the Giant's message boards that were calling for Eli's head, as well as that of Coughlin. NY fans were envious of Romo and were saying the same things about Eli as some people here are saying about Romo. Even worse because of the picks the Giants gave up for Eli who they claimed lacked "fire", he didn't have "it" and he couldn't play under the bright lights of the NY media and fan base. Fans are the same and when they are faced with he same set of BS that we've been through for almost 2 decades, they speak their mind. The difference is that changes are made and heads roll in other NFL cities. Here we talk about our failures as being part of some master plan where "process" becomes the buzz word.
Please, get off your BS. I don't mean to come off as disrespectful but these uninformed posts from people who don't even live in the area, listen to local sports radio or read a stitch of local reporting regarding NY and Philly is irritating.
