In Defense of Jason Avant

Jonathan Miller of Philly Sports Daily sticks up for the Eagles receiver, who denounced Eagles fans jumping back on the bandwagon after bashing the team early in the year:

I dont agree with what he said Eagles fans are as loyal as they come. But I love that he stood by his comments. Nobody does that anymore. Everybody punks out and issues a lame, insincere apology; if Ive offended anybody, etc. etc. And then they slink away from the scene.
It's good to see an athlete not play the "the fans can be as mean as they want to you, but you can't be mean to them at all" game.
