WATCH: Howie Roseman is the king of Philadelphia after clapping back at Eagles fan before Thursday night game
Howie Roseman is the king of Philadelphia. Always has been and always will be.
The Eagles GM constructed the first Super Bowl winning roster in Philadelphia history. It’s hard to top that, but Howie’s Eagles are currently 8-0 and look like to clear cut favorites to represent the NFC in Super Bowl LVII.
As they do every week, hundreds of Eagles fans took over their opponents stadium during the Thursday night matchup with the Houston Texans. One fan brought a sign with him that read, “Howie you are forgiven!” with AJ Brown written right under it.
As fate would have it, Howie Roseman strolled right past this fan and his sign prior to the game Thursday night.
The GM’s response to the sign only solidified his stature as a Philadelphia legend even more.
Howie Roseman pulls no punches, even when Eagles fans are involved
“I’m fucking forgiven for your first fucking Super Bowl! Fuck you! Let’s fucking go!”
These types of interactions between fans and Philly icons just warms my heart.
In Philadelphia, a ‘fuck you’ gesture doesn’t always have a negative connotation. Sometimes – and in this instance specifically – it’s purely out of love. Howie loves us and we love Howie. It’s a beautiful thing to see.
