Biggest mistakes from the NFL’s Wild Card weekend

The Wild Card Round of the 2015 NFL playoffs was undoubtedly wild, with two blowouts bookending a weekend featuring two incredible games decided in the final seconds. The first four games of the postseason provided great theatre. However, much of that drama derived from players making huge, game-changing mistakes.

DeSean Jackson thinks Chip Kelly got bit by karma

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is not known to be one who holds anything back when asked for his opinion. Time and time again during his NFL career, Jackson has mouthed off on and off the field. But more often than not, he has a way of backing up his words with his performance on the field. This is why it was so shocking when the Philadelphia Eagles decided to...

Jackson on Chip Kelly's firing: ‘Karma comes back on you’

  Most of Chip Kelly’s former players were not sad to see the NFL coach lose his job, but the Eagles firing Kelly must have been particularly satisfying for someone like DeSean Jackson. In an interview with Robert Klemko of The MMQB, Jackson was asked about Kelly being canned after a 7-9 season. He chalked it up to “karma.” “I’m a firm believer that bad karma comes...

DeSean Jackson on Chip Kelly's firing: 'Bad karma comes back on you'

DeSean Jackson did not get along with Chip Kelly when he was part of the Philadelphia Eagles, as he was ultimately released after putting up a career-best season, and there are probably many reasons for that. Whatever they may be, Jackson is not alone, as other players have offered blunt assessments of the culture Kelly created in Philly, describing him as a "dictator" and not openly...

Packers must pressure Kirk Cousins to win in Washington

Without the comfort of leaning on Aaron Rodgers and the offense, the Green Bay Packers must look to their defense—and its ability to pressure the quarterback—to lead the team to a win over Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins in the NFC Wild Card Round. It seems ever more unlikely, given the sheer volume of evidence from the last ten games, that Rodgers and the Packers...

Redskins DeSean Jackson a dunce for that Punt Return

I’m sure as of now we all have seen DeSean Jackson run backwards and fumble the football against the Dallas Cowboys this last Monday night.
