Whether or not you consider yourself to be a fan of DeSean Jackson or even the Philadelphia Eagles, the documentary “The Making of a Father’s Dream“ is worth a watch for anyone ranging from football fanatic to those who appreciate a compelling family story.
As the tagline of the film, “It takes a village to catch a break,” indicates, the documentary is about so much more than DeSean. It’s about family. Parenthood. Siblings, both by blood and by friendship. It’s about football and the drive and determination to fulfill a dream. It’s a story that portrays a father’s love for his family and vice versa.
Though we now know Jackson as a wideout with a swagger, this film helps you understand where that stance comes from. What is interpreted by some as arrogance is actually an unshakeable confidence that Jackson has in himself and his abilities. The movie introduces you to an entirely different side of the man who refers to himself as D-JACC.

Chip Kelly knew it was going to be tough coming into the NFL with his offensive system. The last thing he needs is a guy like DeSeason Jackson running his mouth about naming the starting quarterback before camp even gets under way. You would think a guy like Jackson would realize Kelly is under enough pressure. The guy has been on the Eagles since 2008. He knows that starting a quarterback...

My, oh my, how the NFL off season flies.It seems like just yesterday, Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco was hoisting the Lombardi trophy, Ravens' legend Ray Lewis said his goodbyes and the staff in Baltimore decided to get rid of the half the defense. Soon after, Roger Goodell dug himself even deeper with the fan base (and running backs for that matter), and eight new head coaching vacancies...
We're in that "dead" period of the Eagles news cycle, but don't relax too much... Remember, becoming a winner again is about grinding it out... And right now, we as fans are grinding it.

I’m excited to see what the Eagles’ offense will look like in training camp and during fake games. Should give us a glimpse of what could be in store. I have kinda warmed to DeSean at his current ADP and he could be the guy that breaks out in the passing game. We shall see.
