Steve Smith: Eagles Wanted Me "MUCH" More Than Giants Did

The Eagles signed WR Steve Smith away from the Giants today and the pro bowler took to his facebook page to explain to Giants fans why he left to sign with their most hated rival.

I will always cherish my time in NY and the super bowl victory.. This was obviously not an easy decision for me or something i ever expected but unfortunately the business aspect proved that the eagles wanted me to be part of their organization MUCH more than the Giants did.. A special thanks to my WR buddies, coach Gilbride, all of u amazing fans on here, and the entire giants organization for drafting me.. Time for a new beginning...

Not surprisingly, the Giants fans comments on the page are extremely bitter, full of foul language and hatred toward Smith. Stay classy folks!
