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 back next week, but at this point it really doesn’t matter. Tavaris Jackson (194 total yards, 1 TD) looked good, mostly because he only had to throw 16 passes to secure the win. The role of game manager is one that seems to fit Jackson just fine… if he has to throw less than 20 passes, the Seahawks probably win the game.
Riley Cooper (5-94) led the Eagles receivers, but he had a bad lapse where he let a pass slip through his hands only to be picked off by Brandon Browner to kill yet another Eagles drive. Desean Jackson (4-34) showed why no one should probably give him a big
contract; he showed a lack of effort...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
DeSean Jackson has hit a bit of a rough patch. He’s been criticized, questioned, and it seems his frustration is starting to get the best of him.
I never really believed that there was a possibility of the Eagles not resigning him until a few weeks ago. They have depth at the position, but I always believed Jackson was too big of a play-maker to simply let him walk away.
Eagles WR DeSean Jackson may have spent his birthday partying with Draya of Basketball Wives LA but he took singer Mya to the 10th Annual Philadelphia Sports Fans Choice Awards. Cute, I wonder if this is a random flick or a new couple preview?
And all Eagles fans want is a win.

I’ve long considered DeSean Jackson a punk with an attitude problem. He’s a very talented player, but he’s a bad teammate. It’s been that way since he was at Cal, and it’s continued with the Eagles. That said, I felt like he was singled out for his poor effort last Thursday against the Seahawks. My [...]
People can call him disrespectful for missing practice, they can label him a trouble-maker for celebrating too much on the field, they can even say he's afraid to take a hit, but the truth of the matter is he shouldn't have even suited up for the Eagles.
25-year old WR Desean Jackson has ******* about his contract all year long, which is fine. But, his utter lack of effort this year is unacceptable. He should be benched for conduct detrimental to the team. He has played in 11 games for the Eagles so far this year and he has caught 43 passes for 698 yards (16.2 avg) with 2 TD grabs. His alligator arms on passes over the middle...
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...
Amidst all the uncertainty surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles and all the questions regarding the fate of head coach Andy Reid and two-time pro bowl receiver DeSean Jackson, there are a few bright spots who are key components to the Eagles franchise that have excelled despite the 4-8 season they’ve endured so far. And just because [...]

The handling of DeSean Jackson and Asante Samuel was the Eagles' costliest mistake as both players haven't lived up to their lofty expectations.

Some strong performances in defeat last week. Philip Rivers cracks the top 10 for first time since early in the season, Vince Young tumbles, and Tim Tebow keeps outplaying all comers.
