Jason Babin Reacts To Eagles Fans’ ‘Vile’ Chants

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason BabinJason Babin — or at least his Fan Club handle on Twitter — sent a message about loyalty to the Eagles fan base recently.

What was he getting at, exactly?

“Really I was speaking to, during the game there was a good section of fans chanting some of the most vile things I’ve ever heard — not just at a football game, but in life in general,” said Babin. “Talking about attacking Coach, talking about people’s wives and kids and chanting them. And I just thought there is no place for that in the NFL. None whatsoever. Just some of the foul things that they were saying.

“And I’m going to be protective of Coach Reid and Coach Wash and my teammates. It was upsetting that a few bad apples were chanting that stuff, but what are you going to do?”

Here is what was put on Twitter Tuesday:

 

 

What about those who say your job is not to listen the fans but pay attention to what’s happening on the field?

“Absolutely,” Babin replied. “But if I could say just one of the things that they were chanting…it’s way past bad, it’s foul. I don’t even want to repeat what I heard. It was that bad. And I’ve got  a pretty high threshold for adult jokes.”

This is the second time this week that a player has talked about the behavior of Eagles fans. DeSean Jackson also spoke out during an appearance on Mike & Mike.

“During the game, me and one of my teammates, he actually said, ‘Man, they are sitting there and booing us.’ For that to be our support team — Philadelphia fans, they are definitely the type of people where if you’re doing good they love you but once you’re doing bad it’s like the world is going to end. To be out there and hear  our home [crowd] booing us, it’s a crazy feeling at times,” said Jackson. “Once again, we only care about the 53-men on that team, our coaches and the organization. Back’s against the wall. Whoever else is against us, we realize that. Sometimes our own fans can be against us as well.”
