I hope this year we don't boo our first pick or any pick. I can't argue this point enough with Dallas' fans "you guys didn't even want McNabb you booed him at the draft". I wasn't there that day, I didn't boo him. However i'm in the mix because of that small batch of fans that were there booing DMac.
UGH I remember it vividly...I was workin at a Dairy Queen for the summer and i remember not wanting Ricky. I can honestly say i wanted a QB I wanted DMac. I was arguing the point with a stupid Vikings' fan at the time how we need a QB and Donovan looked good. He said "if you guys don't pick up Rickey you're idiots".
I think we had Rodney Peete starting for us and I for one couldn't stand him. I still cringe when I think about those Peete years. Those were bad times my friends.
I hate watching the draft EVERY YEAR and them showing the DMac draft pick. It shows the Eagles fans screaming and yelling at Donovan and him just holding his jersey smiling, taking it. The guy with the painted face screaming "COME ON".
Those fans spoke volumes for us. That day showed the media and the NFL just how dumb "we" can be as fans and they reference that video before every draft day just to show us that point.
I'm not bashing those fans, but us as a whole. So please don't boo this year, we just might be booing our next Brian Dawkins, DMac, Reggie White, or whomever he may be.
