Lane Johnson apologizes for blaming Eagles fans

New, comments
Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that didn't take long. You knew this was coming. Lane Johnson is now apologizing for the comments he made about the Philadelphia Eagles no longer having a home field advantage because fans boo the team. Johnson (or his marketing guy?) took to Twitter to relay his message:

Johnson's original comment wasn't necessarily factually wrong since the Eagles are the only NFL team to play better on the road than at home, but it was never a good idea to say what he said. What Johnson says here in his apology is what he should have said in the first place. The Eagles need to play better in order to give their fans something to actually cheer about. Losing 45-17 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home isn't going to earn any cheers.

The Eagles have three home games left this season. If the team continues to look downright awful, the boos won't stop soon.
