Shawn Andrews says he's had guns pulled on him in Philly

There's a very long and in depth interview with Shawn Andrews in the Inky today that everyone should read, but I'll just quote this one excerpt that jumped out at me.

"A lot of things in my life have happened even since I've come to Philadelphia," Andrews said. "Random people have pulled out a gun on me. One time during the playoffs, some guy walked from around a building and said: 'You're going to the Pro Bowl? [Expletive] him, he's not going to the Pro Bowl.' Luckily, I was talking to someone, and I didn't hear him. If I heard it, I think I'd have been on the ground."

Fame and success is clearly a double edged sword. For every thousand screamings fans that love you, there's bound to be one moron who doesn't and wants to bring you down. It sounds like learning how to deal with that type of stuff is going to be a large part of Andrews gettnig himself better.

Andrews says he's scheduled to see a psychiatrist in Philadelphia this Thursday. Hopefully that's a positive step for him and helps him get himself straight and back on the field quickly.

Definitely check out the whole piece and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
