Colin Cowherd finally gets it right with a recent fan ranking. He says the Philadelphia Eagles fan base is more loyal than that of the Dallas Cowboys.
Love him or hate him, every once in a while Colin Cowherd gets it right. His highly popular show, The Herd ticks the typical Philly fan off from time to time, but not too long ago, he got something right. He ranked the ten best fan bases in the NFL, and he placed the Philadelphia Eagles fan base at number three, two spots ahead of the Dallas Cowboys.
Are you interested yet? Some of you may have seen this one about a month ago. Bear with us. This is probably news to someone else, ITI included.
Here are The Herds top-ten fan bases, according to Cowherd:
3. Philadelphia Eagles
5. Dallas Cowboys
10. Buffalo Bills
Here’s his explanation:

You can argue about the order. You can debate whether or not Philly should be higher. Even with all of that being said, this is a pretty decent list. We do disagree with his comments about Cleveland Browns fans however. That’s one of the more loyal fan bases in all of sports.
Heck, they’re more loyal than the Cowboys fans.
Throughout their history, Cowboys fans have been delusional, uninformed and lost. They show up in droves when things are going well. They disappear when things go wrong. Some even cheer for other teams in down years (you know we’re right).
Professional stories like this one should normally be written in first person. For the sake of argument, I’ll need to break that rule here. I have never seen as much blue and grey in down years as I have seen when the Cowboys are winning. The Cowboys have a large fan base, yes, but they aren’t loyal.
I was once in a mall with three of them. I saw Larry Brown walk by (the guy that intercepted those two passes in the Super Bowl). I recognized him. The Cowboys fans didn’t. I had to tell them who he was. Need I say more?
AT&T Stadium holds 100,000 fans, yet it’s rarely loud, and no one sees AT&T Stadium as one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL. I’ve been myself. It’s a nice experience, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the atmosphere of ‘The Linc’ on game days. Now, think about something for a second.
What if AT&T Stadium had been built in Philadelphia? What if you packed 100,000 Eagles fans into a stadium? Do you catch our drift? What else needs to be said really?
