Shady has Come Around on the Whole Cutting DeSean Thing, The Mayor of D.C. has Not

It took a little bit of time, but it looks like everyone in the Eagles locker room is on board and enjoying the taste of the Chip Kelly Kool-Aid (for better or worse). Though Vincent Gray, the mayor of Washington D.C. (pictured above, looking creepily at Jaccson), recently said “I want to thank the Philadelphia Eagles for making the dumbest mistake,” it seems LeSean McCoy and the rest of the locker room don’t see it as a mistake. Shady told the media after practice:

“The whole DeSean Jackson thing, that helped out, to be honest, in making all the other guys aware. It’s all possible. They’ll cut one of your best guys if (he’s) not buying in. On any team — any team — you look at that, and as a player, you can look at it from so many different sides, but no matter how good you are, you gotta follow these guidelines. And if you don’t, you could be gone. … You gotta buy in.”

So it sounds like everyone is buying in, which is good, because it sounds like the last guy who didn’t buy in got cut. Meanwhile, the now-Washingtonian Mr. Jaccson told the CBS affiliate in D.C.:

“At the end of the day, if you ask me, I just don’t think they wanted to pay me, as far as what my salary was. In this business that we play in, and we’re at now, that’s what happens. Sometimes teams feel they can go get a player for cheaper and have them playing for you, so I think it just came down to a numbers situation. But as far as anything else, as far as anything being implied on the organization, you don’t want to say that. But I think everybody knows what it is. I think everybody knows the situation and what happened.”

And with that thrown at him, the interviewer follows up with the only rational next question: “You look to be in awesome shape. How do you not eat McDonald’s?”

  1. ….DeSean Jackson; the Mayor of DC; or anything LeSean McCoy has to say.

      1. Because it is the story that pops up when you open the site, ball bag.

          1. He probably wants to read the insightful and thought provoking comments from orators such as yourself.

        1. Correction – It’s the first story that pops up after you scroll down for two minutes to get past the header.

  2. Well both reasons given are just about half of it. When you add them together you get one good answer. Basically D-Jack ck ck ck ck ck was cut for at least 2 good reasons. I think there may be more reasons but much less important.

    Kyle, Son, Do you know why brides smile so damn much on their wedding days?

    They know they just gave their last BJ. It’s true.

    1. Why would there be anything about soccer on this site when there are SO many fluff pieces to be written about ex-Philadelphia athletes?!

  3. Who cares what the mayor of DC has to say? Just look at him! He has “corrupt sleazebag”
    written all over his face.

  4. Speaking of dumb mistakes, Vincent Gray might’ve gotten the chance to continue being mayor after this year had he not gotten caught in a campaign finance scandal.
