One thing you can say about Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson is that he’s not afraid to stir things up. The highly-touted No. 4 overall pick of the 2023 NFL Draft proved just that on Thursday night as he decided to taunt the Philadelphia Eagles home crowd in their preseason matchup.

Eagles Fans React to Anthony Richardson’s ‘Disrespectful’ Antics
We all know how Eagles fans are some of the most passionate supporters in the world of sports. This is exactly why it comes as no surprise that some fans just had to clap back at the rookie’s antics on the mean streets of Twitter:
Oh Anthony Richardson disrespectful 😳 play wit the safe ones lil Nigga

While some fans were quick to play down Richardson’s antics as nothing more than harmless competitive fire, a lot of other Eagles supporters clearly weren’t delighted with the young quarterback’s “tasteless” antics.
To add further insult to injury, Philly ended up losing the game to the Colts, 27-13. The Eagles are winless in three preseason contests, while Indianapolis ended their preseason run with two wins and a loss.
