Sorry Texans fans... your QB has confirmed what we knew all along. The best fans in the NFL reside here in Philadelphia. Matt Schaub would know too, since he grew up one.

"It's a tremendous atmosphere up there," he said. "Growing up an Eagles fan and going to the Vet to watch the games, [they have] the best fans hands-down in the country. Definitely down here in Houston, we have some great ones. But up there in Philly, it's going to be a raucous stadium and a fun atmosphere and we're looking forward to it."
While Schaub was born in Pittsburgh, he played high school football at West Chester East High School in West Chester, PA. Tonight, he gets to play in front of the same crowd he was once a part of. That's pretty awesome to be honest.
