97.1 The Ticket -- Philadelphia sports fans have notoriously been known over the years for being ruthless. Sometimes even petty. They're not one bit afraid to boo their own players at home.

And they're apparently not afraid to chide their players in a TV interview about a serious incident.

Following the Lions' 27-24 win over the Eagles in Philly on Sunday, Eagles fans were undoubtedly upset with the way their team performed. The Eagles, pegged in the preseason as a playoff contender, struggled throughout the game and failed to capitalize in big moments.

The Eagles had a handful of drops in key spots on Sunday, including Nelson Agholor, who dropped one on third down, leading to three points on Detroit's next possession.

While being interviewed by KYW-TV, the CBS affiliate in Philly, about a late-Sunday night fire where children had to be thrown out of a window, one Eagles fan -- while heroic in jumping into action -- had no shame in chastising Agholor for letting him down earlier in the day.

"My man just started throwing babies out the window. And we was catching 'em... unlike Agholor," the man said after describing the tense scene.

The clip went viral on Monday. It has been viewed millions of times, and many are calling it "the most Philly thing ever." He must have forgotten the fact that Agholor was a major bright spot for the Eagles Sunday, recording eight catches for 50 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including the one that pulled Philadelphia within a field goal mid-way through the fourth quarter.

Agholor seemed unfazed by the man's comments and thanked him for his efforts in helping out the family in peril.

He called upon Twitter to identify the man -- not to shame him, but so he can get in touch with him and thank him. Agholor certainly turned a negative into a positive with those remarks.
