Before yesterday's game, DeSean Jackson Tweeted this: The factor of being great and successful is a matter of hungriness and cockiness… And I have them both in me!!!! I don't except nuthn less.
We fixed it: The factor of being great and successful is a matter of hungriness and cockiness…But I have a case of alligator arms too, sooo…
Don't worry, we kept it under 140 characters for you traditionalists. But it wasn't his alligator arms (which were understandable after the hit he suffered this season) that pissed off Reid and Vick.
According to multiple reports, when the locker room opened to the media following last night's game, Vick was in the ear of an uninterested Jackson: [Philly Sports Daily]
When the locker room doors opened, Michael Vick and Desean Jackson were side-by-side at Jackson‘s stall, locked in an emotional conversation. Vick soon got up but Jackson remained seated, his head in his hands and clearly upset. He stayed there for some time, half-dressed and with headphones resting on top of his head. Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy came over to sit by the star receiver after a few minutes, attempting to bring Jackson around.
As he walked away, Vick told Jackson, “C’mon, D-Jax, you’re my boy. I would never tell you nothin’ wrong.” Jackson didn’t respond. They later had a friendlier exchange after Vick came back from his press conference.
But it wasn't just Vick who was on D-Jac's case, Andy Reid wasn't happy either: [Wilmington News Journal]
Multiple team sources told The News Journal that Jackson was chewed out by coach Andy Reid in front of the entire team after the game. Jackson, one source said, had irritated Reid by having a loose demeanor before the game and not taking pre-game drills seriously.
I guess the picture Jackson Tweeted of his game face wasn't enough for Coach.
Both reports do say that the conversation between Vick and Jackson was a bit calmer when Vick returned from his press conference. But D-Jac was still bothered that Vick singled him out.
Perhaps it was D-Jac's Mom doing it right on Thanksgiving that slowed him down.
So how's he doing this morning, you ask?
Still confident. I think.
