On Sunday, the NFL Network aired a pregame segment for the NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles, which quickly turned into a chaotic scene.
Host Colleen Wolfe, along with analysts Mike Garafolo and Kurt Warner, had invited fans from both teams to stand behind them as they discussed the game. However, one Eagles fan, dressed in a Jason Kelce jersey, face paint, and a backward hat, quickly hijacked the segment.
The fan screamed, “YEAH. YEAH. YEAH BABY. WOO. YEAH. YEAH. GO BIRDS. GO BIRDS,” and joined in a deafening “E-A-G-L-E-S” chant, making it impossible for the hosts to continue their discussion. The scene was so chaotic that Wolfe had to apologize, saying, “I’m sorry, they’re a little out of hand.”
During subsequent segments, the NFL Network added a metal gate and pushed the fans back several feet to allow the hosts to be heard by viewers. The segment serves as a reminder of the passion and energy of the Eagles fan base, who are expected to bring the same level of noise and enthusiasm to the NFC Championship Game on Fox at noon.
