Shawn Andrews gave an interview to crack reporter Andrea Kramer prior to last night's game, in which he talked about some of the mail and sentiments Eagles fans directed his way following his departure.
“My tenure there had run its course,” he said. “A lot of the fans were unforgiving. Most people thought I’d give (football) up, take my money, kick back and go back to Arkansas and have a heart attack, which they wanted.
“It’s mind blowing,” continued Andrews. “The fact that people thought my depression was fake, my back injuries were fake. Yet despite all the pain and frustration I continued to come back. I had those surgeries so I could come back and play.”
“I opened some of it, but there’s still a lot of hate mail so I throw it away.”
“The next time I read your name I hope it’s in an obituary…. Good job, you’re now a backup…. If you had your head out of your ass you could still be a Pro Bowler for the Eagles.
Wow. All this to a guy who was just trying to get his Michael Phelps on? Just wrong.
Meanwhile, Brad Childress got Favre'd today and was fired by the Minnesota Vikings. Best Twitter response comes from Adem Schefter: So I guess Brett Favre can now drive Brad Childress to the airport.
