The Philadelphia Eagles decided to part ways with wide receiver DeSean Jackson. He has since found a home with NFC East rivals, the Washington Redskins.
Though he has yet to play for the Redskins, Jackson is already beginning to notice the difference. One thing that stands out? Redskins have better fans than the Eagles.
“It is different. They’re very supportive here. They’re open,” Jackson said in an interview with CSN Washington this week. “You know, being out on the field you hear certain things, but they are good things. In Philly sometimes things could get a little negative. They booed their own players. But here you don’t really get that. They are here supporting you. Just as many people come to our (morning practice) that come to our walk-through practices, so that shows you something, to not really have a practice and people are still sitting here through a walk-through, they are really big fans.”
Should it come as a surprise? Eagles fans booed Santa Clause once.
