It all depends on your perspective and how thick your skin is. The media drives fan’s opinions of players, regardless if they are valid or not.
If you are a strong-willed player, it probably doesn’t bother you at all and you can do your job accordingly. If you are a sensitive player, it can affect you on and off the field especially if the fans and media are negative towards you.
Only Tony Romo knows if what they say about him bothers him or not.
Tony Romo talked to reporters. Tells us, 'Not to be rude, but y'all don't matter.'

At least Romo was polite when he insulted them.
