Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is not immune to the fact that he is one of the most heckled NFL quarterbacks in the industry.
In an interview with WFAN in New York, Romo was asked which of his NFC East opponents he dislikes the most. Not too surprisingly, Romo gave this answer regarding the Redskins, Giants and Eagles:
“I don’t like any of them.”
Romo was then probed about which rival team’s fans give him the most hassle when they visit Dallas.
“I try to tune all that out, but I think obviously you guys are looking for Philly.”
“They’re funny. They’re nice. They’re just passionate about their team,” Romo said of Eagles fans.”
Romo also pointed out that the Eagles fans are not afraid to razz their own players on occasion:
“They have no problem turning on their team sometimes too. It’s funny when I hear them yell at their own guys out there.”
Romo’s comments coincidentally align with a study that was recently done which concluded that the Eagles fan base is the most hated in the NFL. Go figure.
Romo and the Cowboys will travel to Philly to face the Eagles in Week 2, and then they will host them in Week 9 for a Sunday night prime time matchup.
It should also be interesting to watch running back DeMarco Murray as he squares off up against his former team, perhaps taking a bit of razzing of his own.
