Your favorite talking head can now make their completely ridiculous, rooted in baseless assumption, always wrong game-by-game predictions.

OH SHIT ANOTHER GREAT NFC EAST TRASH TALK FEST. SHADY AND OSI. DESEAN AND LARON. BRANDON BOYKIN AND WALTER THURMOND?
Responding to comments made by former Seahawk and new Giant Walter Thurmond, who claimed that he is “the best slot corner in the league,” Brandon Boykin wondered… who the hell is that?
Jesus Christ. I love Boykin, and Respect the Spunk™, but is being the best slot corner in the league really something care that much about? It’s like saying you’re the best penalty killer in hockey, or the best pinch hitter in baseball. Like, yeah, it’s meaningful, but you’re not on the field all the time and generally matched up against the other team’s third best receiver. It’s an important role, no doubt, but jeez, let’s not shout it from the rooftops.
I’m being honest when I say that Aresenio did a better job of asking DeSean the tough questions than Stephen A. Smith did. But my takeaway from this interview is: “It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none.” Words to live by, my friends. Words to live by.
How, exactly, a snake factors into that equation, I’m not sure:
YEAH OF COURSE FRAMPCAMP IS IN DA BAC GROUND SCARED DERRS A GODDAMN SNAKE IN DA PICTURE !! Continue Reading…
DeSean Jaccson is obviously trying to repair his image. After having his name dragged through the mud by reports about his poor work ethic and gang affiliations, Jaccson, in a dramatic shift, looked very professional on Instagram and in an interview with Stephen A. Smith. Then he skipped the start of OTAs by heading to a private island, instantly grammed a picture looking high as a motherfucking kite, attended a series of high-profile parties, and tried to holla at Rihanna with his pants nearing his ankles.
Ya boi might have some explaining to do to former teammate Mychal Kendricks, who, apparently, is the object of Ri Ri’s crotch-rubbin’-charged lust.
Rihanna was spotted by TMZ leaving a party on Saturday night. In the video – noticed only by reader Jeff – we can see DeSean, wearing nearly Larry Platt pants, having some sort of conversation with Rihanna before she pulled away:
It doesn’t appear as though Rihanna rolled her window down any farther for D-Jac.
You can’t hear what’s being said, but, as a male, I’m just going to assume it was that last-minute, late-night plea to stay for just one more drink and then my friends can take you home later. Or, you know, you can stay over at my crib.
Anyway, can’t imagine being photographed in a wife beater, bandana, chain and with ass hanging out while talking into the back of Rihanna’s SUV is the image Redskins brass were looking for when they signed DeSean.
Potential holdout Evan Mathis will, in fact, be at OTAs today. Last night, however, Paul Domowitch reported that Mathis would be a no-show. Domo was wrong, and Mathis made sure everyone knew about it. But the best part? Mathis was Domo’s source for the inaccurate report:
Got punked by @evanmathis69. Sent me a map pin last night claiming to be in Turks & Caicos. He wasn't. Will be at NovaCare today.

That map pin, Domo, would be DeSean Jaccson.
Certain younger Eagles might be the most likable group of athletes in the city right now. Combined with the team’s newfound social media efforts to actually embrace other local teams – a long way from its apparent attitude during the Banner and Reid years – guys like Jason Kelce, Connor Barwin, Brent Celek and even Riley Cooper are making it even easier to root for the Birds. Just normal dudes, doing dude things.
Last night, Cooper and Kelce were at Xfinity Live! watching the Flyers game like everymen:
This after the Eagles tweeted the picture of the group wearing Flyers jerseys and a video of them chanting “let’s go Flyers.”
Hangin out with Jason Kelce and Riley Cooper at Xfinity #LetsFly

And then there’s Barwin and Kelce playing poolside beer pong in cutoff customized Phillies Jerseys:
Good luck finding any Phillies just chilling at the bar.
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona has released Donovan McNabb’s mugshot– without an explanation. Yet.
UPDATE 1: He was issued a criminal traffic citation in January in that county. May be related to that.
UPDATE 2: TMZ reports it was a DUI arrest:
Law enforcement tells us the mug shot stems from a DUI arrest in January.
We’re told McNabb hashed out a plea deal with prosecutors and was sentenced to 1 day in an Arizona jail.
One law enforcement source tell us McNabb has already served his time … though it’s unclear when that happened.
We’ve made multiple calls to McNabb’s people — so far, no word back.
Weird that it’s released now.
AND HOW’S YOUR WEDNESDAY?!
First told you last year that DeSean Jaccson reportedly owed Drew Rosenhaus nearly half a mil. From Yahoo (June, 2013):
Rosenhaus is alleging that Jackson took multiple loans from him, beginning when Jackson hired Rosenhaus to represent him in November 2009 and continuing through March 2012, a source told Yahoo! Sports.
Rosenhaus has filed a grievance with the NFL Players Association over the loans, multiple sources confirmed. Jackson severed ties with Rosenhaus in late May.
Well indeed he does owe Rosenhaus money.
Yahoo! legal reporter Rand Getlin Tweets that the NFL has ruled and decided that DeSean owes exactly… carry the 2… multiply by 3… divide by Lil Terrio… $516,415. Or, as it was explained to DeSean: Staccs on staccs on staccs.
Back in 2011, Rosenhaus was overheard at Dave & Busters trash-talking DeSean as a client. Around the same time, Howard Eskin reported that Jaccson was broke and using Rosenhaus’ credit card. So… credit to Eskin, he appears to have been right.
Side note: Love how Rosenhaus tacked on, like, 50% interest. Shark, that man.
