What seemed to be an endless supply of new faces and free agents at the start of training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles seemed to make a sure path to the Super Bowl.
Sitting at 4-8, thirteen weeks into the season, nothing could be further than the truth.
And while DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy are both making less than $1,000,000 on their respective rookie contracts, one is playing and one is not.
McCoy is among the league leaders in rushing for the Eagles, says the right things and has been a good soldier.
The Eagles and McCoy earlier this season apparently talked about a new contract, this being his second season.
Jackson, following an outstanding game in a win against the Giants, is at the other end of the spectrum.
They both had something else in common, until early November.
Both had Drew Rosenhaus as their agent.
McCoy fired Rosenhaus, while Jackson kept him on.
‘Member this guy?
He is with Terrell Owens during the 2005 season. And we all know how tha...

DeSean Jackson didn’t have a great game on Thursday night when the Eagles lost to the Seahawks. More than that, it appears as if he might be alienating his teammates. Jackson was seen not running out routes and at one point, ignoring Vince Young when he attempted to talk to him while on the sidelines.
But, what really has feathers ruffled was the following:
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson wasn't in the best of moods after his team dropped a 31-14 setback to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday.
The Eagles (4-8) has lost four of their last five games and have underperformed greatly.
Jackson was shown sitting on the sideline by himself, prompting reporters to ask if he had an issue with his teammates. He also ran a...
When a season comes unraveled as it has for the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles, it's not rare to see tempers flare. The latest event involved receiver DeSean Jackson, who hasn't done himself any favors over the past few weeks in his pursuit of a new contract. Locker room video acquired by CSN Philly shows a premature end to a postgame locker room interview after Thursday night...
We often look for scapegoats when things go terribly wrong. After all, it has to be somebody’s fault right? Someone who is not completely imbibed in their job or giving off the sense of being disengaged.
DeSean Jackson seems to be the persona non grata and posterboy for the Philadelphia Eagles’ failed season, as their year took a turn for the worse last night losing 31-14...
As the end of the week approaches, a pair of OWS contributors banter about some of the important (and not so important) news items of the week.
So, um, they’re kind of bad, huh? All that aside, my favorite character in this whole thing is Desean Jackson (or, as the back page of the NY Post will soon label this clubhouse cancer, DISEASE Jackson). He’s kind...
Everything else you could see coming. Michael Vick hadn't had a great game since torching the Washington Redskins in that epic Monday night game last November. Chemistry problems on the defense were unavoidable after the team brought in two cornerbacks to play with Asante Samuel. Coordinating that defense would be a coach who spent the last two decades working with offensive...
Philadelphia Eagles – 14, Seattle Seahawks – 31
So much for any post-season hope the Eagles were clinging to, as the Eagles players can now start making plans for January that don’t include football. Vince Young (240 total yards, 1 TD, 4 INTs) was terrible, throwing four picks including a pick six that he had no business throwing in the first place. Vick will probably be...
Eagles coach Andy Reid is "disappointed" in how DeSean Jackson was portrayed during Thursday night's game broadcast, saying he was proud of his receiver for having a great attitude.
To hear Eagles coach Andy Reid tell it, when it comes to DeSean Jackson, the NFL Network is guilty of trick photography.
