DeSean Jackson

  1. Catching up on some big Eagles storylines heading into Week 9: Foles starting, Sopoaga traded and winning the division

    The Eagles are coming off of back-to-back losses to division rivals at the Linc by a combined score of 32-10. Chip Kelly’s offense has not produced a touchdown since October 13 against the winless Tampa Bay Bucs. We’re at the midway point in the season, and the buzz around Philadelphia has clearly shifted as many…

  2. DeSean Jackson worth the money, not a headache

    It doesn’t take much rolling up of the sleeves to establish that DeSean Jackson is a less than cost-efficient asset. Since 2011, he ranks 33rd among NFL wide receivers in receiving touchdowns, 17th in receiving yards per game and 13th in yards per catch. All account for the first eight weeks of this year, his supposed “breakout” year. Yet…

  3. Foles should be the starter: second-year QB masterful in Eagles 31-20 win at Tampa

    If I’m Chip Kelly, I’ve seen all I needed to from Nick Foles. Simply put, the kid is playing a better quarterback than Michael Vick right now. The second-year field general picked up right where he left off last week in the Eagles’ 31-20 win over Tampa Bay. Foles completed 22 of 31 attempts for…

  4. DeSean Jackson: ‘I don’t think [Darrelle Revis] can run with me’ [UPDATED w/ video]

    If Darrelle Revis is experiencing any ill effects from his ACL tear from last September, he hasn’t allowed it to slow him down on the football field this season. Revis Island may have moved in the offseason, but just like that place from the TV show Lost, it’s still somewhere wide receivers can disappear for…

    With the Eagles making pit stops at the Molly Pitcher Service Area this weekend before taking on the Giants at the Meadowlands, the fine people who brought you that amazing “We Will Rise” video now created a similarly fantastic video about DeSean Jackson’s Miracle at the Meadowlands.

    DeSean Jackson vs. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie John Gonzalez had a nice story some days back about these two flashy stars renewing their rivalry.

  7. Eagles Fans’ Incredibly Ambivalent Relationship with DeSean Jackson

    The Philadelphia Eagles are almost spoiled with two of the most talented and electrifying offensive weapons in the game in LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. Throw in the speed and cannon of Mike Vick and it makes for the chance of excitement every time the Birds have the ball. But when they need a big…

    Breaking down matchups the Eagles could potentially exploit against their upcoming opponent was often an exercise in futility during the Andy Reid era. It didn’t matter whether the Raiders had the 32nd-ranked run defense in the NFL or winds were gusting up to 60 miles per hour in Cincinnati. The Birds were throwing the football.…

    Among the most positive signs from the Eagles’ 33-point offensive outburst on Monday night had to be the performance of DeSean Jackson, at least as far as individuals are concerned. Coming off of consecutive seasons with declining numbers, the two-time Pro Bowler showed he’s ready to serve as the torchbearer for the wide receivers in…

    One of the pressing questions for the Eagles heading into this season was what if Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense goes three and out, and their defense had to go back right on the field after they just came off? New question: what if the Birds’ opponent goes three and out on offense? The answer is…

    This is the day we’ve been waiting since before Chip Kelly was hired, when it was becoming apparent Andy Reid’s run was coming to an end. Some disgruntled followers have no doubt been waiting even longer. But the time has finally come for this Chip fella to show us why he was one of the…

    Truth told, it probably won’t happen–people will still remember the gaffe primarily for DeSean because he did it first and he did it twice and so on. Still, I’d say this one was way worse–at least you had to watch the D-Jax highlight a couple times to make sure he really got rid of the…

    As a recovering sneakerhead, I can usually appreciate a good collection when I see one. No doubt there will be at least a few pairs of Jordans, some Air Force 1s, possibly a few rarities.

    On the surface, Michael Vick’s first game as the newly reinstated starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles seemed like a mess. He didn’t demonstrate flawless precision like the two games prior. He seemed to be holding on to the ball too long in general. He made some horrendous decisions with the football. Some of that…

    Chip Kelly dropped some big news today, naming Mike Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins and the foreseeable future. He probably could have waited another week to make an announcement, but Vick was clearly ahead of Nick Foles after the last preseason game and that was unlikely to change,…
