Will Eagles Fans Boo If Geno Smith Is Selected 4th.

Posted March 19, 2013

Personally I don't think the fan base would have that kind of reaction. This draft doesn't seem to have a large difference in the top of the draft to the the 10th player chosen. If you ask 10 different people who they want the Eagles to draft you are likely to get 10 different answers. In my opinion the McNabb booing was created by Cataldi and his 30 idiots. He wanted a particular player and he didn't get him, but that didn't mean the rest of the fan base wanted to boo McNabb. It was an unfortunate situation that was made bigger over the years (by the media and the player) than it needed to be. Players get booed in drafts all the time, but nobody makes a big deal out of it. Kevin Kolb was also booed at the draft, but nobody ever mentions it. That could be cause Kolb stinks, but again players get booed at drafts all of the time. Whoever the Eagles draft better bring thick skin, because he is likely going to hear boos reigned down on him at some point in his career and instead of 30 idiots it will come from 65,000 plus. The Dream Team was too soft to take it. That's why they had so many run ins with fans during that time. Some were face to face while others were on the internet and on talk radio. They were also soft on the field. Whoever the Eagles chose is going to have to be tough and instill some of the toughness in his teammates.
