D-Jac Got Chewed Out

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.

Wilmington News Journal:

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?

Thats how im feeln… Damn cuh>>RT @DWarren2: "if im not the king of this that i must be the president"@nipseyhussle

Still confident.  I think.

  1. Whatever. Jackson has dropped a few critical passes that could have changed that game. Like if he caught that one TD yesterday, things would have been a lot different. He’s not like Celek, who seems to have turned into the invisible man.

  2. I agree. Not going to kill him over it. But I guess his attitude and alli arms pissed off coach and qb a bit.

  3. when someone acts like they are the best then they gotta put up or shut up. he stunk up the field yesterday so he deserved a chewing out.if i was vick i would of slapped him.

  4. I agree with darth! i can not stand this man and wish the eagles would get rid of him he has is like the evil offspring of TO and Randy Moss. Shows in his work ethic and attitude. Causing a distraction and making himself look like an uneducated idiot with twitter and then taking plays off and not giving it 110% for 60 minutes. The man disappears in the spotlight. When the pressures on “D-Jack” folds like a lawn chair. Think about it when is the last time that 10 had a slow first half of a game and then came out blazing in the 2nd half??? never, at least what i can remember… you take him out early and he just gives up and goes thru the motions!

  5. i dont mind them chewing him up, everyone needs to be every once in a while, and im sure we are not aware of the true meaning behind it so making assumptions doesnt help. but to suggest trading him, that is just dumb. he is one of the most electrifying players in the league as well as a game changer. whether he has a good game or not, his presence alone helps us win. teams respect his long ball threat and if he wasnt out there you would not see the numbers you are from maclin avant mccoy or celek. to say he doesnt care is even dumber. and then to compare him to those receivers is also dumb. yes he is cocky, but never have you heard him call out a qb for not giving him the ball. everyoone respects him.

  6. I have no problem admitting that i do not like this guy. But he just has an air of negativity about him. And Tommy, you lash out about me making assumptions when one of the largest parts of your argument is based solely on that. B/C there is no way to prove what kind of impact, if any Jackson has on anyone else. Also he may not speak out about his team, but at the same time he represents everything that i see wrong with this team and league for that matter. Too many atheletes not enough football players. People like Vick, Jackson and others that think that you can get by on speed, arm strength and jumping ability… Call it biased if you want, just my opinion

  7. Who is this Adam kid? THEY don’t think they can get by on just speed, and quite frankly, Vick has 100 times better TOUCH on his passes when needed than 97% of the QB’s out there. He doesn’t rely on JUST throwing hard. He has also toughed it out and hung in the pocket to throw some very nice and accurate passes when the DLine is bearing down and hitting him after the throw, so don’t tell me that he always relies on speed to run, either. And when the receiver is less than 170 lbs, pretty much the ONLY asset he has is speed, which is why Reid backed off, realizing every corner and DB in the league outweighs DJack by 20 lbs.
