Home Team Disadvantage?

Mark Saltveit - December 26, 2015

The Eagles play the Skins tonight with a playoff berth on the line.

The good news is, Washington is a terrible road team. Consider this statistic:

espn - kirk cousins road vs home

Yes, the Skins have won 3 of the last four games. But as Tommy Lawlor points out, the loss was to the miserable Matt Cassell-led Cowboys. And the wins were against the Giants, the Bears, and a Bills team that appeared to give up after the Eagles eliminated them from playoff contention. The narrow victory against Chicago is their only road win all year.

On the other hand, the Eagles are not a good home team. They have the same record at home and on the road this year: 3-4. And that’s actually a major improvement.

Philadelphia set the NFL record by losing 10 straight home games between September 30, 2012 and November 17, 2013.

And the team they beat to break that streak? Washington.

DeSean Jaccson, Whose House Was Reportedly Stormed By Gun-Wielding Gang Bangers Last Week, Is Now a Dad

Kyle Scott - October 26, 2015

The subject of the first episode of DeSean Jaccson’s Home Team was born today. Congrats to proud papa DeSean, who also just put his California house, reportedly the scene of a dangerous home invasion where gun-wielding gang bangers pistol whipped his friends last week, on the market. Good to hear that his little bundle of joy will have his crib in a much safer, eyyy, crib, free of gangsters and other assorted hangers-on.

There Was A Home Invasion at DeSean Jaccson’s House, His Friends Attacced at Gunpoint

Kyle Scott - October 23, 2015

Eyyyyyyy ya boi d-jacc aint in no gang but hows got robed again n dis time dey sus pect gang N volv ment !!

From TMZ:

DeSean Jackson’s L.A. home was the scene of a violent home invasion incident this week — and at least one person inside got pistol whipped … TMZ Sports has learned.

It all went down Wednesday morning at Jackson’s home in Tarzana, CA — with law enforcement sources telling us 4 to 5 people stormed the home with guns.

We’re told investigators believe the intruders had been in the home before. Sources connected to incident tell us the intruders appeared to know exactly where the security cameras were placed.

Our law enforcement sources tell us cops have they have leads on some of the suspects — and believe the incident was gang related.

So this sounds a lot like what happened around here— DeSean’s house robbed, robbers know he’s not home, they curiously know where everything is. This time, there’s people inside, DeSean’s friends, and they’re pistol-whipped.

Prediction: DeSean says he’s not in a gang… fails to mention that all of his friends are and they live at his house.

Somewhere, Eliot Shorr-Parks smiles, wryly.

UPDATE: DeSean Jaccson Sacced By Bloccing Sled, Status Unknown

DeSean Jaccson, who can’t be stopped by anyone but who has always struggled in close-quarters press coverage, was injured today when he was blown up by… a blocking sled. From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Receiver DeSean Jackson was injured in the first 1-on-1 session of the day. He ran a long route, then appeared to hit his right shoulder against a blocking sled that was placed behind the end zone.

Jackson did not participate for the remainder of practice, and declined comment afterward. However, he remained on the field for several minutes after practice chatting and shaking hands with Houston players.

Just this week, DeSean reminded reporters that he can’t be stopped:

Didn’t say anything about inanimate metal objects, however. Wonder what this will do for his street cred, ya digg ?? What sucks is that the injury was witnessed by 7.8 billion people.

UPDATE: He has a Grade 2 separated shoulder and is out a couple of weeks.

I Can’t Stop Watching DeSean Jaccson’s Stupid Instagram Vacation Video

Jim Adair - July 23, 2015


DeSean Jaccson’s Instagram account is usually full of dumb selfies, stupid inspirational memes, and over-filtered images. But for some reason, I can’t stop watching his stupid vacation video. I don’t know if it’s the overdone effects while he’s on horseback, the quasi-deep panning shots over crashing waves, or just the fact that it exists at all, but I can’t stop. I’m on my 20th loop of it I think. I’m still going. If his TV show was like this, I’d watch every week.

You can check it yourself after the jump. Ya digg?

Desean Jaccson’s Reality Show Is Positively RIDICULOUS

Kyle Scott - July 1, 2015

Voila_Capture 2015-07-01_12-23-48_PM

So I watched the abomination that is the obviously scripted and staged DeSean Jaccson: Home Team, which debuted on BET today last night. Here’s a brief recap:

Things started off with news footage from when DeSean was released by the Eagles. The setup is obvious: Once on top, not on top, working to be on top again, but will face obstacles that can only be overcome by the guiding hand of his fame-seeking mother, Gayle.

We haven’t seen this formula before.

The framing is clearly built atop a deep hurt resulting from DeSean’s release from the Eagles. These are just some of the things he had to say with regard to that matter:

“It was a smear campaign.”

“They call me Giant killer, Cowboy killer. Now I’m an Eagle killer, too”

“I felt they definitely tried to paint a picture that wasn’t true.”

“It’s like, bro, the Eagles, they tried to blow me up– that’s how cold they did me.”

So one would assume that the following 20 minutes would consist of video evidence that DeSean is not the character he’s perceived to be, and that he’s doing all the right things to reverse the existing perception. That seems like an obvious conclusion given the early appearance of his longtime publicist, Denise, whom DeSean says is doing a “great job.”* But nope. Denise’s client is now the star of a show which features consecutive segments about his rap aspirations, partying habits, and the conundrum he faces after knocking up his girlfriend of “five or six months.” There’s no mention in the first episode of the OTAs he skipped for the second year in a row.

*This despite the fact that her client has been publicly cast as a gangster who’s not a team player and cares more about his rap career and fame than football, something that is not at all being helped by his new reality show. Yeah, she’s doing yeoman’s work.

I mean, what, on Earth, was DeSean’s camp thinking here? The questionable character traits apparent in just the span of a few minutes are staggering. They have nothing to do with him being a gangster and everything to do with him being a selfish jerk. Evidence: Continue Reading

Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

Kyle - June 17, 2015



This post is part of The Crosswalk, Crossing Broad’s reader submitted section. While checked for basic quality and readability, it is not edited by Crossing Broad, and all opinions expressed are those of the author, for better or worse. If you’re interested in having your work appear on Crossing Broad, fill out the short sign up form here.

The most compelling story in the dumpster fire that is the Philadelphia sports scene is Chip Kelly and his need to borrow a shit to give one about what people think about how the fans, the media and his former players feel about how he wields his newfound autonomy as general manager.

Chip has become the most endorsable sports figure in Philly but let’s be real, the Tostitos thing went stale quickly. Evan Mathis was the latest to see his time with the Eagles KO’d by Chip (even if it was by request). We haven’t seen this type of carnage since Mike Tyson in his prime. The video game industry has picked up on the trend and found the perfect game to tie the “could he be a racist or is he just a megalomaniac?” head coach/general manager to: The “could it be racist or is it just one big chain of lazy stereotypes?” Punch-Out!! Series.

Welcome, Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

Remember: Don’t waste your knockout punch on Tra Full of Bull if he’s not stunned.
