Some of you younger Philadelphia Eagles fans may not know this, but as much as fans of the Birds hate the Dallas Cowboys, and rightfully so, there’s a disdain that exists in older supporters of this team for the New York Giants that’s equally as venomous. Then again, who are we kidding?

The love of this Eagles team is almost like a family birthright. Fandom is passed down from generation to generation, which means you’ve heard your fathers and grandfathers complain about the G-Men probably for as long as you can remember.

Be forwarned. You should make sure you’re sitting down because what you’re about to read won’t help the irritation.

Giants safety slights the Philadelphia Eagles in a recent tweet.

Giants safety Jabril Peppers is definitely someone who won’t be able to walk down Broad Street and get a free Cheesesteak anytime soon. The most obvious reason is the fact that he wears that ugly jersey on game day. Another reason is tweets like this one won’t endear him to Eagles fans or the City of Brotherly Love.

Sure it was cute, but let’s be honest. The Giants and their fans are a little salty because the Philadelphia Eagles jumped ahead of them and got the guy that they wanted. Look no further than the fact that they immediately traded down after Philly grabbed DeVonta Smith to reach for Kadarius Toney with the 20th-overall selection.

Here’s all that Philadelphia Eagles fans need to see.

For those of you looking to find some credence to what Peppers is saying, there’s no need. Everything that we’ve all seen from Smith since he’s been drafted makes us all believe that he’s totally satisfied with where he was taken and where he landed.

Take a look:

Trending. Grading every Eagles draftee... Grading every day.... light

Throw Mr. Peppers’ latest diatribe in the category of things that we can move on from relatively quickly. Oh, and if you see him, remind him that the Birds have taken 20 out of the last 25 head-to-head meetings.
