Deion Sanders rips Eagles fans

Deion Sanders had some not-so-nice things to say about Eagles fans tonight after the team's 48-20 win over the Cardinals. Donovan McNabb arrived at the NFL Network's set at the Linc for a post-game interview. Many fans stayed in the stands to applaud McNabb, who threw four touchdowns in the victory. As fans chanted McNabb's name, Sanders interrupted. "Can I tell them something for you?" he said. "First of all, I would like to tell all these idiotic fans to shut-up. Don't get on his bandwagon now. You're the same guys who booed him on his first incompletion." Host Rich Eisen then asked Sanders what he thought of the Philly fans. "I can't stand them. I really can't. It's not because I was a former Cowboy because I didn't give a darn about any fans. They all hated me because I performed well," Sanders said. "But they way they treated this man from Day One, it's not justifiable. They will not treat any other quarterback in the NFL, like we said, Peyton Manning don't get treated like that. Tom Brady. And I know you [McNabb] can't say it, but I would really like on your behalf, you can take this...God bless you guys. ... "
