Eli Manning Says The Eagles Have The Rowdiest Young Crowd
If you happen to be in the Mercer County area, you'll notice a perfect mix of both Eagles’ fans and Giants’ fans. Now the question is, which team has the rowdiest fans? Is it the Philadelphia Eagles or the New York Giants? Hmm!
The Giants QB, Eli Manning, sat down with News Day in New York, where he had something very interesting to say about the young Eagles fans. “You go there, and that 9-year-old kid is giving you the double finger.” Manning also mentioned, “Not a thumbs-up. Not, ‘We’re No. 1.’ And he said something about my mom; I had to Google what it was. It’s just different. It’s a different culture.” I would say that is definitely a different type of warm welcome to the Linc.
Manning also mentioned in the interview with News Day that playing at the Lincoln Financial Field is one of the toughest away games, stating, "In most places, young fans of the opposing team still are happy to meet a visiting NFL player."
To make Philadelphia Eagles’ fans laugh a little more, Manning mentioned that the hardest tackle he has ever taken was by an Eagles’ player during his NFL appearance.
As for Giants fans, at least you will have the 38 year old QB for at least one more season. That is, unless he is traded.
