NATIONALLY, Eagles fans have a reputation of being arrogant Neanderthals who throw snowballs at Santa Claus and cheer opposing players when they go down.
Those things have happened - a long time ago. The snowball incident occurred at Franklin Field during the final game of the 1968 season (44 years ago). And fans cheered when then-Cowboys star Michael Irvin laid motionless on the turf with a neck injury during a game at the Vet in October 1999 (13 years ago).
Yet, the national media still runs with those stories with LeSean McCoy-like passion.
Which brings us to the Chiefs-Ravens game in Kansas City on Sunday, when fans cheered when Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel left in the fourth quarter with a head injury.
