Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson voiced frustration about the Eagles fans' booing. The team was booed often during its 45-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He told Philadelphia Magazine on Tuesday that the Eagles get booed if they're down by a significant number of points or not getting first downs.
"It's not really home-field advantage playing here anymore," Johnson said on the Birds 24/7 blog. "Really, that's the truth. Cats here, they really don't care."
Shortly after the comments were published, Johnson apologized on Twitter.
"My comment about the fans was out of line and I apologize," he wrote. "I'm just frustrated like they are about our performance on the field. The bottom line is that we need to give them a reason to cheer by scoring and winning games."
