What was DeSean Jackson yelling about on the sidelines? He seemed pissed.

Dec 16, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

DeSean Jackson put up some big numbers on Sunday in Minnesota — 10 catches for 195 — and actually caught a real nice touchdown from Nick Foles. But it was clearly going to be his outburst on the sideline that everyone on sports radio and the Internet were going to be talking about come Monday morning.

The outburst took place shortly after Nick Foles threw in an interception on a ball intended for DeSean down the sideline. It wasn’t clear what Jackson was so angry about from watching the TV alone, but one might have guessed someone said something to him about not making a big enough effort to break up the interception.

That was my guess anyway.’s Reuben Frank tried to get to the bottom of it after the game. A lot of players talked about it, but never really said what DeSean was so angry at. He’s just passionate, tis all.

“It was just a point in the game where you’re dealing with a lot of emotions involved, and it’s one of those things that happened,” Jackson said after one of the biggest receiving games of his career.

“I cannot really discuss what happened. That’s what happened, it is what it is.

That’s what happened. It is what it is.

More from Frank:

Jackson didn’t answer directly when asked if he felt he could have done more to break up the interception, only the second thrown by Foles in 266 pass attempts this year.

“[I] felt I was open, but he didn’t see me right away,” Jackson said. “I just thought I was open. It took a little bit for the ball to get there. Big part of the game. Big turnaround. Felt I was open but wasn’t able to get the ball and make a play.”

So, who knows. A minor squabble that likely had no lingering impact. But it’s still never good to see your squad bickering at each other, no matter the insignificance of it all.

    So he blames Foles.

      The GALL of him, to blame the guy who made a hideous pass about 4 seconds too late

    Avant probably said something to him about not breaking up the interception. I can’t say what it was like for DJacc on the field, but from my armchair it looked like he could have played some defense on what was a poorly thrown ball from Foles.

        You mean “Riley Pooper”. Amirite?

    He wasn’t yelling at Foles, he was yelling at the wide recievers coach who probably made a comment to him about trying to break up the pass.

    it looks like he was responding to something Colt Anderson said..

    I’m a little late. You can see he was yelling at the WR coach (the white guy in the hat & headset at the bottom left corner of the screen when the gif starts at the beginning…he them turns his back & walks away. Take a look at all the other guys faces tho after Jackson says his piece…Celek, Vick, Foles, Cooper, Maehl…They all kinda seem shocked especially celek & foles. A true veteran professional would have gone up to foles & show some leadership…after all this is pretty much a rookie QB throwing to you…tell him to shake it off & they’ll get a TD next time. Instead Jackson says nothing to Foles but yells to others that he doesn’t give an F that it got picked.
