Found December 05, 2011 on Football Nation:
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...

What Can We Expect From DeSean Jackson This Weekend?

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. This...

The Assist: DeSean Jackson & Singer Mya Attend The Philadelphia Sports Fans Choice Awards

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. Curtsy to Crunktastical

The Philadelphia Eagles should bench Desean Jackson

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...

Jeremy Maclin Doesn’t Think DeSean Jackson Was Ignoring Vince Young

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 [...]

DeSean Jackson Should Have Held Out This Season

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.

Eagles DeSean Jackson performing himself out of a big contract

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...
