I can not even begin to explain how furious I was when I heard these comments. Of all people, on all of the teams, Bob Whitfield feels the need to blast Giants fans.
"If you're booing in the second quarter but you call yourself a fan, you need to go home; that ain't my type of fan," Whitfield said.You know what's not my type of tackle? A guy who holds, gets extremely damaging personal fouls and allows his quarterback to be beaten into the ground.
"Yeah; you heard that stadium get quiet as hell," Whitfield said. "We're in it together. [Bleep], they help us win when they bring the noise level, get them jumping offsides. That [bleep] helps."I am usually the first to call out Giants fans for being quiet but on Sunday they were far from that. Despite the Giants getting spanked again, the fans seemed relatively loud from start until that final interception that sealed the deal. They were loud through each and every one of Whitfield's holds and they were loud through the terrible play calling. I guess when these guys run out of people to blame they turn on the fans.
"Right now, for the next week, we need that [bleep] the loudest, and we need everybody in it for the whole 60 minutes, from our side, to the fans, to everybody, because we need as much help as we can to beat the hell out of the [bleepin'] New Orleans Saints."You need a lot more help than the fans can give you Whitfield. You need to go back a few years to when you were actually good and could keep guys away from your Quarterback without grabbing their jersey. And as far as the Giants, they need a new coach, a new secondary, new coordinators, offensive line help, for their injuries to heal and for another receiver to step up; not for the fans to cheer.
I am ashamed to be a Giants fans. These guys can not seem to shut their mouths and have now resorted to insulting the fans! Talk about a fall from grace, this is pathetic.
