Desean Jackson Would You Please Shut The H-E Double Hockey Sticks Up!

Posted July 19, 2013

“Dream team”, does anyone remember that one? How about “we’ll see them again”? Maybe you recall “the BETTER team lost this one.” My personal favorite “We can be a dynasty.” All words former and current Eagles have stated about themselves over the past two seasons and in that same span they won 12 games, finished in the top 10 in the draft, got the coach with the most wins in Eagles history fired, and last season finished at the bottom of the division. In other words that sure was a lot of tough talk for a bunch of bums who quit on their coach.

 

Now Jackson has decided to doom this season by stating that the Eagles are “still a top 5 team in the NFL if you ask me,” Jackson said on ESPN’s First Take on Wednesday.  “Regardless of what everybody else say, we gonna go out there and get it done this year.”

Really Desean? The Eagles are a top 5 team? The Eagles haven’t been a top 5 team since Brian Dawkins and JJ departed/passed away. So now we are back to players writing checks with their mouths that their performance on the field can’t cash. Desean was the only player in the recent OTAs who seemed to receive a demotion at least for a day. Now he’s predicting the Eagles to be a top five team when he barely knows the plays now? Let’s not forget he’s one of the players who helped get Andy Reid out of town with erratic play, spending an entire season moping around, and flat out refusing to return punts. Suddenly Jackson is defiantly stating the Eagles STILL are a top five team. It’s almost laughable to even consider when you think of all of the changes this team has gone through in the past 5 months alone. Desean should do himself and his teammates a huge favor. Instead of talking about how great you think you are, put the damn work in on the practice field and prove your worth on the field. Stop TALKING and start DOING.
