The Revolutionary Communist Party and First Amendment pioneer Gregory Johnson staged a flag burning outside the Democratic National Convention today, only to find a Philadelphia Eagles fan taking objection to their attempt at free-speech fulmination.
Washington wide receiver DeSean Jackson was talking some of that good stuff during a recent press conference, telling reporters, “I don’t feel no one could stop me. You could go get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman, whoever you want to get.” At today’s practice, Jackson hurt himself by running into a blocking sled.
Washington WR DeSean Jackson’s reality show premiered last night. I didn’t watch it because, god, who cares. But this guy at ESPN had to watch it for his job, and he wrote down the one interesting thing Jackson had to say, and here it is:
DeSean Jackson had a fun Saturday. The former Philadelphia Eagle got revenge on the team that cut him as he racked up 126 receiving yards on four catches, including two receptions of over 50 yards. Sure, Washington's been a grotesque circus this season, but for Jackson, it must have felt nice to totally screw up…
We're not sure about every word DeSean Jackson's chirping at the Vikings fan, but he seems to end the conversation with a "fuck you."
Washington has started three quarterbacks this season in an effort to find one that works. It's been terrible. Despite the shuffling, one offensive player hasn't been affected much at all: DeSean Jackson, the big-play receiver with the busted quarterbacks, has kept busting up defenses.
As you may have heard, DeSean Jackson played for the Philadelphia Eagles for six seasons before he was rather unceremoniously released by the team in the offseason, and Eagles fans were none too pleased to see him return to Philly today. But Jackson just housed a long, game-tying touchdown on his former squad's home…
DeSean Jackson is back in Philly for the first time since being released by the Eagles and signing with Washington. Eagles fans are probably excited to give the guy they spent six season cheering on a warm welcome, right?
Earlier this year, an NFLPA-appointed arbitrator ruled that DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus more than half a million in unpaid loans. Jackson is fighting this in court, and in filings made last week, alleged that Rosenhaus illegally paid him to be his client, a payout that included $50,000 in a Louis…
Listen, love is love, clap the gat at y'all haters
The CEO of your label is a basketball player
That mean your shit is never coming out
Sean Price, I'm forever dumbing out, pyrex
—Sean Price, "Pyrex"
Football fans are smarter than teams and media give them credit for. When the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, they could easily have said, "Jackson is a great player, but between his sometimes-spotty play and his occasional inability to get along with coaches and teammates, we don't believe he's worth the $10 million…
Over at FiveThirtyEight, Neil Paine has an interesting post on what sort of expectations we should set for DeSean Jackson. This is a good question, but it raises a second, wider question: What should we expect DeSean Jackson to mean, on net, for his new offense as a whole?
Richard Sherman has written another post for The MMQB, and this time he is wading into the mess of stupid that has bubbled up around DeSean Jackson's release from the Eagles and alleged gang ties. It's the smartest thing that's been written about the situation yet.
ESPN 980 beat reporter Chris Russell learned a valuable lesson about not saying anything ever, when he promised last week to quit his job if Washington signed DeSean Jackson. Well, Washington signed DeSean Jackson.
The Philadelphia faithful will have their chance next season to tell DeSean Jackson exactly what they think of him, when he returns as the newest member of a divisional rival. Jackson agreed to terms with Washington yesterday, on a relatively team-friendly deal for one of the league's top receivers.
Rapper Wale is helping in Washington's courtship of DeSean Jackson, the two of them hitting the club last night along with Pierre Garcon and DeAngelo Hall. Wale posted the above photo to his Instagram, and ESPN took notice.
The NFL story of the day is the release of WR DeSean Jackson almost immediately after the release of a report that the Eagles were concerned about his association with alleged Crips gang members. Two former players have weighed in, and both are of the mind that Jackson is being unfairly smeared for the company he…
The Eagles have released star receiver DeSean Jackson. The move is something of a surprise—though he was likely done in Philly, they might have gotten something for him in a trade—but the timing is fascinating. The announcement came exactly 35 minutes after the publication of an NJ.com article alleging the Eagles were…
