Former Eagles tailback Correll Buckhalter released a statement today expressing his regret over signing a 4-year deal with the Broncos after hearing the outcry from Philly fans saddened and angered by the loss of a long-time Eagle.

“I had no idea the fans cared about me this much,” said Buckhalter in his statement. “After I signed the deal, I heard something on the news about ‘Philly fans in uproar after sports icon leaves for Denver, details at 11′ and I knew immediately I made a huge mistake.”

The new Bronco was later told that the news story was actually referring to13-year veteran safety Brian Dawkins, who had also signed with the Broncos, and not about himself. When reached for comment, Buckhalter said he would make sure to “stick around for those details at 11″ the next time around.

The loss of the Eagles heart and soul has left a void in the core of every Eagles fan and a several trillion four-letter words in the ears of Eagles management.

“They don’t even have the right to be called the Eagles anymore the way they’ve disgraced this franchise,” said disgruntled Eagles fan Angelo Formerfanelli. “They should be called the Fake-Eagles, or Feagles, or Wannabeagles.”

    I think Buck must be back on the weed, I liked him and respect him for the hard road he traveled comming back from his knee injuries, but I don’ know if people were outraged over him leaving. I think he may be confusing himself with the other guy we lost to the Bronco. Now that really was an outrage
