Jackson: ‘It Was A Humbling Experience’

USATSI_7518675_168380503_lowres
DeSean Jackson
was made available through teleconference Wednesday afternoon after inking a three-year deal with the Redskins. He touched on the way things ended in Philadelphia, and gave his thoughts on the idea of playing his former team twice a year.

Jackson, who was released Friday shortly after a story came out about his alleged gang ties, downplayed the idea that he comes with character concerns.

“I feel like the people who really know me know what type of player I am, they respect me and they know I’m a team guy and I just go out there and put it on the line for what I do and who I’m around. I think that’s never really been a problem,” he said.

“It was a humbling experience for myself, me being at the peak of my career and doing some great things in this league…I’m very humble for me to be where I’m at and being able to be released like that. But at the same time, I feel moving forward is the best thing for me…Eventually, I think people will really understand and see the real DeSean Jackson, and not the painted picture that was put out on me.”


Jackson said RGIII had a "big part of getting me to sign here" and reached out to him as soon as he became a free agent. He also credits DeAngelo Hall for making him feel wanted.

As for playing in the same division as the Eagles?

"Obviously me coming from the Eagles, that will definitely be emotional and a big game. But I would like to say that every game we play this year will be the same way," he said. "I've never been to the visiting locker room in the Linc before, so someone will probably have to show me the way to get there."

Jackson joked that he may be able to convince RGIII -- who currently wears No. 10 -- to switch his jersey to No. 3. He spoke highly of new head coach Jay Gruden, and said much of the terminology in this offense is similar to Andy Reid's, which he believes will help with the transition.

He avoided criticizing the Eagles or boasting about the prospects of the Washington offense with him now in the fold.

"For myself, I was at a point in my career where that made me very humble, for  everything to go down and happen the way it happened, but coming here [general manager] Bruce Allen, Mr. Snyder, Jay Gruden, I think it was an open arms situation. I was just looking for an opportunity to come in and be productive and help out any way possible. I think this place here is a great place and has some great things going on, and I'm just happy to be an addition to help this team win. "

    DJax class act in the end. Good luck little buddy gonna be fun and good games against you…stay healthy,stay strong, whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…

    • Jerry Pomroy

      What he said…

      But I’d just add… it’s now on, twice on Sunday’s from here on out.

    • James Skip Carl

      I look forward to our rookie safety whomever that may be hopefully Buchanan, knocking him out that one time a game he comes across the middle.

  • Coach McGuirk

    *to switch his jersey

    Anyway, I loved Jackson’s big play ability and will definitely miss him on the team. Not sure exactly why everything went down the way it did but either way it will be hard to see him on the other side twice a year. He truly does sound like a humbled man right here but we’ll see how he handles a new situation. Really don’t think he’ll implode the way many are speculating right now though.

    • addicted2mula

      He is going to wear number 1

  • PaoliBulldog

    Cris Carter all over again? I hope not, but I’m sure the Eagles had made their concerns clear to DJax for a long time.

    • GEAGLE

      Tom Gambles father was in charge when we lost Carter…just SAYIN..

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Hopefully your boy (and Oreo’s) Lyerla has had THAT humbling moment.

        • GEAGLE

          If he is an eagle….if he is on another team in our division. Hope he is crazier than ever :)

  • Andrew

    :( ilu djax

    • Javi Echie

      I hope you’re a 12 year old girl with a comment like that

      • GEAGLE

        It’s oreofestar…he just changed his screen name to get that off his chest :)

        • Javi Echie

          haha touché sir

        • Jerry Pomroy

          ^^^that was a good one.

      • Johnny Domino

        He’s a state trooper pretending to be a 12 year old girl, so watch yourself.

        • Javi Echie

          I could care less if he was nobody is a predator over here trying to lure them into a rape van so I think we are ok

  • Adam G

    I’m sure RGMe had anything to do with Djax going to Washington and not the fact that they were the highest bidder.

  • Brian

    Sorry, DeSean Jackson, I must hate you now.

    • G_WallyHunter

      I almost didn’t enjoy liking him, much easier to hate the little prick

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Oh just you wait. The first time he showboats instead of running in the EZ he’ll get his at the Linc.

        • damrvrhunter

          How about we don’t give him the chance to see the EZ? The great Keenan Lewis and DRC shut him down, imagine Cary Williams yapping in his ear all game long reminding DJax how he supported Riley Cooper during the Chesney fiasco. That should be fun to watch.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Hopefully he harasses him inside 5yds because otherwise Jackson owns CW if gets free. Just slap the shiznit outta him at the line and he’ll draw a penalty. We got backup in Carroll if CW gets tossed…lol.

          • damrvrhunter

            Amen brother!

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Seriously, if I’m Chip, I’m pulling CW aside and saying “Listen Cary, remember when we talked about you toning it down last year? Yeah well, just for these 2 games only against WASH I want you to bully DeSean like nobody’s business. I don’t want any injuries, but if he gets off clean, I’m coming down on you. Any fines will be covered by the team. You feel me?? Good. Make it happen.”

          • Maggie

            Ouch. I’d hate to see what you would like to do if you really got pissed off at someone, lol.

          • ODBorBustAllDay

            Seriously. Send a LB to pick fight. Get to Throw a punch and See ya. We’ll sing him on his way to the showers

        • G_WallyHunter

          Honestly can’t wait to see that little pos in burgundy at the link… And can’t wait for Gruden to send him over the middle because he thinks it will work then kendricks pops the little sticks helmet off… I’d pay big bucks to see that lol

          • ODBorBustAllDay

            He and#95 are both CAL alums. Put my money on Barwin

  • DEBO 215

    lol RG III isn’t changing his jersey number…he’s one of the top sellers in the league. Goodell will have a fit. DeSean is gonna have to change that 10 mode…
    Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t…I couldn’t care less if the Eagles win a damn championship.

    • GEAGLE

      Expect similar situation as Mike Wallace leaving the well run Steelers and Big Ben to go play with Dysfunctional dolphins and Tannahill

  • Maggie

    Wonder who the speech writer is? From the Washington PR department or the agent’s office?

    • DEBO 215

      That’s his agent, no doubt.

  • GEAGLE

    Lol thanks will…I just stopped reading them and will try my hardest to change the subject in every comment section…lol

    • Will

      So Geagle what DT’s do you like this year in the draft?

      • GEAGLE

        Still looking into the DLs

        Loved Hageman til I found out he was 24yrs old already…worry about older mature players beating up on 20, 21yr olds in college…
        ..
        Could see us liking Tuitt even if I’m not much of a fan
        .,
        Think If Aaron Donald were to fall, we would quickly snatch up him even if he isn’t TAILOR made to play in our scheme…
        ..
        Love Justin Ellis…good dancing bear type to scoop up after the 5th round. Arms aren’t as long as we like, not much height…but agile for a 330lb 5th or 6th round pick, and versatile enough to play Nose and some DE for you

        Brent urban 6’7 DE…at some point I will get around to really figuring out his game using a young Caleus Campbell as a reference point

        Think Taylor hart is going to get drafted later than he should because he missing the entire draft process to do injurt

        • GEAGLE

          I adore NT Nakita Whitlock and wouldn’t mind taking a Squars type of flier on the undersigned NT, but I wouldn’t spend a draft pick on him….I still have like 10 DL I really want to watch…

          Love the Easley kid. But can’t trust his 15 knee surgeries

          • Will

            Did you check out Tennesse’s Daniel McClullers yet?

            http://firstroundgrade.com/prospects-2/2014-prospects
            /dt/daniel-mccullers-dt-tennessee/

          • GEAGLE

            Love him…doubt the eagles are interested….don’t see how he can transition between fronts from one play to the next…I don’t see us adding anyone who we would NEVER want on the field in pass rushing situations…which is why I believe a NT who can move like Justin Ellis will appeal to the eagles more….but me personally, I love McCullers, I’d Sacrafice a roster spot for an anchor like him….I just don’t think Eagles are inteested

        • GEAGLE

          EDIT: when I worry about older players going up against 20yr olds, I worry the most about older players who play in the trenches..Danny Watkins syndrom, which is why I’m scared to take Hageman even if I love that dude

        • Jerry Pomroy

          Donald is exactly what we don’t want to happen. That’s a nightmare scenario right there brother. Once you draft ‘em that high, you’ll never get equal $$ on the dollar spent when trying to trade him because he doesn’t fit.

          If he’s there I’m taking phone calls looking for someone that wants him and is willing to offer something in trade.

          • GEAGLE

            What do you mean?

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Refresh. I edited. I know it’s a good value pick. But I don’t want Andy Reid square pegs (Cole, Graham, etc) for our round holes. I want my defense built the way it should be.

          • GEAGLE

            There is no pressure like pressure right up the middle and smack into a QBs face…worst case scenario he could just be an interior Nickle pass rusher for us, but who knows just because he was never asked to two gap doesn’t mean he can’t develop, but I do feel you…I just not sure we would turn down that type of talent. But I really doubt would ever fall that far,,,,he should be the first DT drafted….
            ..
            Funny how 4 months ago McShay had Jerrnigan as a top 5 pick

          • Jerry Pomroy

            That’s why I’m calling every team that runs 4-3 & asking if they’d like him if he was sitting there at 22. There’s your trade back into 2nd rd.

          • Will

            6’7″ 360 lbs of pure two gap NT in Daniel McCullens….

          • GEAGLE

            Love him, doubt eagles are interested

          • Jerry Pomroy

            That’s a big ass to through in middle. Christ at 6’7″ just have him stand up with arms outreached. Batted passes anyone??

          • oreofestar

            the same way Momah just had to put his hands up to win a jump ball :P

          • Maggie

            Odd. I mentioned A. Donald just once a couple of weeks ago. I can still see the sneer in good ol’ Geagle’s reply. and I wasn’t even conversing with him! How things change.

    • G_WallyHunter

      No!!

  • travis papa

    I applaud djax for showing a level of professionalism I thought he would be incapable of. Good for him. Someone learned from TOs mistakes. The other side of it is he got really a 2yr $16mil deal and more realistically Washington got a 1yr live hand grenade if he has the same yr he just had and is named all pro he will be screaming at the top.of his lungs for a new deal.

  • peteike

    can you see the real me, doctor, doctor. Going third person also was a nice touch. ‘I’m a team guy and I just go out there and put it on the line for what I do and who I’m around. I think that’s never really been a problem” ummm except that one season where I didnt

  • Glenn

    Jackson has shown a lot more class than the Eagles. I wish him well, and I am pretty sure he will make the Eagles think twice about their decision making. DeSean wasn’t perfect. But I think he was on the path to have a very good season with the Eagles this year. The Eagles offense was set to be explosive. To set the record straight, a reporter asked him point blank about his contract situation, and he simply answered it. Neither he, nor his agent, demanded a renegotiation of the contract. The Eagles opted, as is their right, to renege on the remainder of the contract. Now the Eagles saved themselves 10.5 million dollars, have a below average WR corps remaining, and a need to improve. What they do with the money at this stage of the game remains to be seen. Without getting any player compensation. And strengthening a division rival in the process. I think it would have been better to keep DeSean for one more year, as having him on the roster gives the team the best chance to win the division this year, a year for the taking. Even if the Eagles draft his replacement. And, yes, it would have required some coaching and leadership to get the most out of Jackson. But, alas, the Eagles have chosen this path. And did not go about it in a classy dignified way. And that is their prerogative. Unless we find out some criminal activity, this was definitively the wrong move.

    • damrvrhunter

      I hate to nitpick on such a well crafted post but I honestly will not miss Desean. For the amount of money he was set to make he really was not a consistent drive after drive big game playmaker. Not a Fitzgerald or C Johnson type that you could rely on to sustain drives come up with key clutch catches when everyone knows he is the target. Like many posters have noted he is more Mike Wallace than Jerry Rice, the lil dude for 10.5 mil gave you absolutely nothing in the red zone but headaches in the meeting and film room. For sure he had a role in the offense but not at the cost(s). I wish him the very best except against us but am not worried.

      • peteike

        ya but just to play devils advocate. Many of the good WRs have games where they dont produce. Hes a good player but I could say a tad limited, but still brought a lot to the table. More than some give him credit for

        • damrvrhunter

          Do you think he is a number 1 wideout?

          • peteike

            Id say hes like a 1b, somewhere between a 1 and 2. Def not a typical 1

          • damrvrhunter

            I think Chip agrees with you and wants an upgrade. He became convinced that having Desean on the roster while trying to incorporate an ODB-Cook-whomever draft pick would be a very bad idea.

          • Richard Colton

            He was our #1, no doubt.

          • damrvrhunter

            And that is really saying something is it not that a thin framed 5-10 170 lb soaking wet WR is what you battle with? In Chip I Trust! He is no Andy Reid.

          • HowieDon’tKnow

            He was pretty good in some fights over the years. I don’t think the G men or the D boys liked facing him in green. Definitely our #1 and probably the best WR in our division, at least.

          • James Hathaway

            He has exactly one TD against Dallas in 10 games vs. them, and averages 3 catches vs. them. He would’ve doubled his TD receptions had he not been a moron and dropped the ball, leaving it for Westbrook to jump over the pile on the next play.

            He torched NY year after year, and typically torched the Redskins as well. Just could never find a way to show up for Dallas week.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Hahaha… You liked that comment on Twitter huh? We’re stuck with $6M of a cap hit and the Skins only take on a cap hit of just over $4M. Such BS. I want our money back!

          • Richard Colton

            yeah – we saved enough money to sign Mark Sanchez

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Is Jerry Rice available??

        • damrvrhunter

          Geagle seems to think his clones are in this draft right?

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Not quite. It’s not even like Rice was a monster WR. HE WAS JUST THAT GOOD.

            I will say that there are some potential TO-esque talents though. I’ll take that…minus the headaches of course.

          • damrvrhunter

            We are in agreement.

          • cliff henny

            there’s plenty of talent. if Kelly rolls out vastly different looking offense, more 2TEs, or everything close to LOS slants 3v 2 screens, he simply might just be going away from everything that makes Jax great. I like Jax, but he is limited. now if Kelly runs out offense where WRs are running 20-30 yrds downfield, i’ll be pretty annoyed.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Yes, but I’m saying there are some bigger stronger guys that can run, catch in stride and muscle through tackles.

          • James Hathaway

            I don’t think Chip is dumb enough to try to force a square peg into a round hole. Look at what he did with Foles. He understands his offensive players strengths and weaknesses and I fully expect him to design a system to bring the best out of this team.

        • GEAGLE

          His cousin is in this draft

          • Jerry Pomroy

            And that would be? I seen to have forgotten. Which is typical for me… lol.

          • GEAGLE

            Monsta Moncrief

          • Will

            yup…

          • GEAGLE

            No my bad, it’s Jordan Mathews who is Jerry’s cousin…I always have Moncreif on the brain

          • oreofestar

            My boy Matthews!!!

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Yeah I remember reading it in the scouting notes. Just couldn’t remember who it actually was.

        • Maggie

          Rice kind of looks like he could run a route or two. Also someone on NFL Network said they ran into Mel Blount, who looked kind of like he could still play too! Just for a moment, dream.

    • peteike

      class, shmassh, this is football, he is the enemy now. Just win games and cheer for a fine redskin seasonal meltdown

    • ABirds

      I don’t see how the Eagles didn’t show class. They haven’t commented on his release. They were tight-lipped about their intentions with him and Chip complimented him. How is that classless?

      Fact of the matter is that DeSean didn’t fit the mold. Chip wants someone to play all out every play, and DeSean takes a lot of plays off when he’s not the number 1 target. Chip wants someone who is an effective downfield blocker, DeSean isn’t. Chip wants someone who can beat man coverage, DeSean struggles to do that consistently; Chip had to put him in motion to be able to create any separation last season. It could be argued, that Chip was more responsible for DeSean’s success last year.

      Dude disappears in big games and the playoffs when he’s up against better corners. Draft one of the many good WRs coming out this year and move on.

      • HowieDon’tKnow

        “Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”

    • Maggie

      He had “coaching and leadership” for several years already. His former coach did not want him, his former teammates are strangely silent and he’s already stating that Washington’s star quarterback should give up his uniform number to him. Personally I had no strong opinion one way or another about Jackson until today. Now I have to agree. Selfish, self-centered and childish. He’s not 17 any more but still behaving like it.

      • HowieDon’tKnow

        Know it all.

      • James Hathaway

        I think the QB giving up his number thing was sort of a joke. Although, maybe not. That’s how I took it, at least.

      • Coatesvillain

        Wait. You’re making a joke about a jersey number into something? Wow. That’s impressive.

  • James Hathaway

    What the hell… now he’s being humble and I actually liked reading what he had to say?! Where was this the last 6 years?!

    • macadood

      I don’t know what everyone is reading on here, I found it quite funny the part where he’s talking about how humble he is and “I’m very humble for me to be where I’m at and *being able to be released* like that.”

      what does that even mean? As if he had a say in being released. And the whole reason he got released was for being incredibly not humble and cocky and full of himself. Sounds the opposite of humble to me. You and I all know DJax is far from humble.

      • Will

        I think getting cut was a shock to him especially for no compensation…

        • macadood

          Clearly it was humbling for him to get cut like that, I’m not debating that. My point is that getting cut doesn’t automatically make him humble now.

          “being able to be released like that” – ANYONE can be released like that :D humble or not. As if there is ability to being released.

          and all of this use of humble sounds like he’s trying too hard a bit. Wish him the best of luck, the situation in washington sounds like a ticking timebomb to me though.

          • Will

            Up until he asked for RG3 for # 10 Jersey I was buying it…lol…

        • Maggie

          The $16 million is for playing for 2 years though.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Window dressing. Puttin’ on a show for the 1st meeting with the girlfriend’s old man.

      • GEAGLE

        Right…tomorrow he will be back to farting and scratching his nuts in public

        • Jerry Pomroy

          And belching at the dinner table…

          • cliff henny

            already insulted Snyder. joked that rg3 is owner of team. guy held it together for a week, got 16huge, seriously what could he possibly of learned? if anything everything was condoned.

          • Andy124

            Are we not supposed to do that?

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Screw that, I do all of the above all the time. No shame. Well except for scratch my nuts in public. I shower frequently so I don’t have an itch problem…lol.

    • reb

      What gets me is that I have this feeling that we’re never going to know the real story. Why they really let him go and why he’s taking so calmly and maturely. Something weird happened, we’ll just never know. Now can we cut it with the DJax stories?!

    • Maggie

      Humble? Speechwriter. Except the part where the decision has not been made about the jersey number!? He expects the star quarterback to change his number? Humble?

  • Amar (India)

    I wish Desean the best, he has shown a lot more poise than I expected. Another thing that annoys me is why do fans care how much he was about to make ? Its not like we were so up against he cap that we couldn’t sign big time FAs. Doesn’t matter how much he made, your ticket and the beer @ the Linc will still have a 600% markup.

    • peteike

      ya, Ill never get why people care. Unless the team is in cap hell and it starts to effect depth and FA possibilities. When was the last time it mattered, TO days?

    • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

      From a business standpoint it was a solid plan that his agent had in place lol. As much as we hate the results. He got his guaranteed money. If he tripped and fell and broke a leg this off season with the Eagles he wasn’t getting paid point blank. People do forget about the business side of things.

      • Amar (India)

        Not following you, are you saying it was Desean who wanted out ? In that case, he would be the one making noise and not the Eagles, first trying to shop him and then releasing him for nothing.

        • Jerry Pomroy

          There were heavy rumors that DJax agent was telling him to holdout for more guaranteed money. DJax said to the press that his agent had a solid plan in place when he also talked about more guaranteed money after playoff loss.

        • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

          No I’m saying Djax wanted the guaranteed money the whole time. Which was the exact offseason plan that he and his agent had in place. Djax knew the Eagles weren’t budging. If he had to be released that wasn’t the worse thing either. I think when the story leaked out, it was both parties that were involved in their own way. Djax’s instagram photos will tell you that he was playing into it. My Eagles fandom aside…I commend him for getting his money. As a player when ever you have an opportunity to use your leverage you use it. We’ve learned that the league is not going to care about you when you’re done or injured. Players are one serious concussion away from being the next Jahvid Best lets not forget that. That being said, I wouldn’t mind seeing the Eagles drafting Calvin Pryor to blow DJAX up crossing the middle.

          • Maggie

            If DeSean is the immature person that people seem to think he is, he did not come up with any “plan”. Not by himself. His agent, well….Agents do not get rich by being stupid.

          • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

            @Maggie It doesn’t take too much to say “I need to make more guaranteed money” lol. Players will always want to get paid in the end.

        • Maggie

          He needed a NEW contract with somebody so his NEW agent would get his percentage. If you really dislike Jackson, console yourself with how much goes to his agent, how much to the IRS and possibly, how much to his creditors. There might be little left to “wear colors”, at least off the field.

  • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

    The Crips street gang announced today they will be releasing DeSean
    Jackson, amidst rumors of possible ties with one of the most troubled
    and controversial franchises in the NFL, the Washington Redskins. via SportsPickle I needed the laugh.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Wonder how they’ll feel with him wearing red?? I think that had something to do with it… lol.

      • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

        Yea well they might let that slide since its Burgundy…but hey it could have been worse if he signed with KC lol

        • Jerry Pomroy

          Looks more like “blood” red than burgundy. Plus I believe that the bloods run thick in DC area. Maybe he can convert? Lol

  • Michael Myers

    i am so sick of reading/hearing quotes from college attendees/graduates that can’t manage an even slightly grammatically correct sentence. dude sounds like an effing idiot. i’m a high school drop out so save it. humble my ass djax.

    • Maggie

      His agent has a good speech writer, but there’s no stopping an ad libber.

  • Republicans_Sux

    Tell Jackson he can have a nice big slice of “Go fuck yourself ” Cake

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Tell us how you really feel. I mean don’t hold back. Lol

      • Andy124

        So ambiguous…

  • cliff henny

    and then ‘skins handed you a lifetime supply of money, so all that humbling went right out the window.

    • LookinAtMyGucci

      By “lifetime supply,” did you happen to mean approx. 1 year’s worth for DJ?

      • cliff henny

        haha, probably true. should be. even if he just took 5m and bought into 2 or3 colleg dorm/apt complexes, he’d never have to spit another rhyme. how these guys go broke is insane. buy a freaking wendy, papa johns or 10. don’t go out for a month

        • LookinAtMyGucci

          This is the kinda clown that bets 10Gs his protege is a better freestyler than the protege of an actual rapper. I don’t know if the word “invest” means anything to him.

          • GEAGLE

            Lol you aren’t a fan of Jaccpot rapper “retro”???

          • LookinAtMyGucci

            I had no idea his name was “retro”. The name is quite the misnomer given his style.

          • Maggie

            “Invest” is no problem. Investing in the first thing he lays eyes on, now THAT’S a problem. Also not listening to any experienced advice.

  • Hiral (GM)

    Ok so I watched some film on ODB. In all seriousness I need someone to explain to me why most of you guys seem him worthy of a number one pick. If its not mike Evans I don’t see it happening. He is somewhat explosive but dri archer is faster in my book. He is an average at best blocker even though he is an expectional catcher. I did notice he has problems with separation when in press coverage. I just want some clarification.

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      Do you ever have positive posts?

      • Will

        No don’t feed the troll…

    • Jerry Pomroy

      3 letters… R…A…C

    • peteike

      and Dri Archer is RB so……? just take the fastest guy, the Raiders playbook

  • Jerry Pomroy

    So amidst DJax signing with Skins, NFL.com is now polling who’ll be better in 2014, Foles or RGIII? Foles won out something like 5-3 amongst their analysts polled, with Billick giving Foles some serious praise.

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      really? the guy that had 2 ints vs the guy that got benched for cousins? and it was 5-3?? lol

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Yeah, I’ll post link…

      • cliff henny

        cant win, don’t fight it. too many people mistake espn top10 highlites for elite qb. we saw it first hand with Vick. think eagles’ fans are pretty well broken of that notion. i’ll watch and enjoy vick in NYJ, for however long he stays healthy

        • LookinAtMyGucci

          Only if it the plays make it on God’s Channel (RZ).

      • anon

        Rgiii had literally best rookie year ever, maybe now after Foles. You see he’s not doing any subway commercials this offseason.

        • Jerry Pomroy

          Ahhh! That’s it. That means he’ll be much better this year.

          I’m calling it now. Foles has another really good year and Campbell’s comes knocking.

      • Jerry Pomroy

        I think it was more wishful thinking on their part in hopes that RGIII returns to form. However, I just don’t see it. It’s not like Jay Gruden is an offensive genius. Dooh!

        • peteike

          Jay, great in reg season then gets killed in the playoffs. Perfect fit for RG3 if they ever get back in the dance. Or was that all entirely on Dalton haha

        • Maggie

          I could see it if Washington got some QB coach genius, who could not only teach RGIII how to make good decisions in the NFL but also teach him to come across as a better team player. Let’s not forget that he has shown a little too much arrogance at times too. And I don’t mean self-confidence, which he should have, like any QB.

      • LookinAtMyGucci

        They have to keep pumping RG3 up as much as they can for the NFL to squeeze every cent out of his name.

  • Hiral (GM)

    I have one more main point. Chip Kelly wouldn’t have let DeSean go if we were in dire need of a WR unless he moves up and takes Evans. Now go back to the Super Bowl the best offensive in NFL history got shut down by a good not great defense. People defense wins championships not offense. We seen the best offense in NFL history get shut down and that was Peyton manning at the helm… I’m open for debate

    • Will

      First year New Defense 9 games held opponents to 21 points or less …Relax that was year one…I Think CK knows he Needs a NT,ROLB and one more good Safety…I think he knows we need another WR, OG and a kicker as well we will find out in 37 days…will we get everything no but we will get a few more pieces to the plan…

    • Joe L

      Considering how fluid of a situation the draft is, saying he’s already got it locked in that he’s moving up for Evans is kind of absurd.

    • Adam

      The team that scores more points and/or allows the opponent to score less points in the Super Bowl game wins championships. There is no defining rule. Last year it was the defense that won it. The year before, both teams had good D’s but it was still a slug fest. Year before it was a bit of luck and a bit of defense.

      • anon

        It’s pass rush, you’ll win if you can get to qb. In our case qb got to himself.

        • Adam

          Only place our QB got us to was the playoffs, and he left the field with the lead.

          • Will

            The kicker missed how many FG’s?

          • Adam

            Yeah, the kicker that is still on the roster for some reason. Garbage.

          • ODBorBustAllDay

            In fairness, the first FG Hendry (Goodfellas pronunciation) missed was after Foles took one of his ttrademark HORRENDOUS hold the ball for sooooooo long and refuse to just throw it tge f#ck AWAY sacks for an 11 yard loss. I almost threw my beer at the tube. Knocked them right to Henrdy’s limit.

          • Will

            45 yards and his shaky…I want kicker that nails 55 yds no problem…

        • Jerry Pomroy

          He ate too much chunky soup at halftime & up chucked it all on field.

  • Hiral (GM)

    And for anyone to say that RG3 is a safety playing QB… Than let me say Pieree Garçon lead the league in receptions and averaged 5 per game. Pretty good for a safety QB. We will be in shoot outs with the redskins but we have a better Defense than them. But do understand if we don’t take a DB in the first round. Ha Ha, Fuller, etc best believe DeSean will torch us. And no Boykin can’t run stride for stride with DeSean. Lets be real

    • Adam

      Dude what are you even talking about. What is a safety playing QB?

      • Joe L

        Garcon had 5 catches a game, therefore RGIII is a very good QB. Duh.

        • Jerry Pomroy

          Yes, you can’t debate. He’s a GM. It says so in his screen name.

          • Will

            GM stands for Gaint Mess…

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Was that supposed to read Giant Mess? If not and you meant Gaint, you lost me.

            As my spell check screws with me and puts Faint.

        • Adam

          I thought of him more as a corner QB

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Now your just being generous. He’s a DT of course silly.

        • LookinAtMyGucci

          Let’s not forget that math done by people that aren’t retarded concludes that 5rec/g x 16 = 80 catches.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Hey Gooch, no calculators! ;-)

          • LookinAtMyGucci

            Damn, you’re on to me.

        • Hirl(GM)

          Brother you don’t lead the league in receptions with a bad QB? Don’t be foolish. If Tom Tupa was the QB would he have over 100 receptions?

          • OldDocRoss

            Discuss.

      • Hiral(GM)

        Geagle made the comment that RG3 was a safety playing QB

    • Will

      DJax runs a 4.33…….Boykin runs a 4.35 good enough…a good jam and the front 7 do thier job stop worrying about Deadskin DeSean…so used to watching bad player’s play bad football you would not know a good player if you fell on them…

      • Hiral(GM)

        Hope your right.

      • ODBorBustAllDay

        Deadsean

    • Bleedgreen

      Why can’t Boykin run stride for stride with Desean? Keenan Lewis seemed to lock up Desean just fine and he runs a 4.47. It’s not about speed, it’s about technique and getting physical with Desean…if you re-route him, he’s done. I haven’t seen Desean show up in a big game against a good defense. Other than his first postseason, Desean has been a non-factor in the playoffs. He knows how to beat up on mediocre defenses.

  • oreofestar

    SO MANY WEAPONS IN DRAFT!!!

  • Token

    So humbling that hes already making it known hed kinda like his star QBs jersey number lol.

    • Adam G

      Was just about to post the same thing. He will never change. Mesean forever.

  • ODBorBustAllDay

    Without hearing the actual context it wad said in. ….. It’s funny that he would “joke” about Bob changing his#10. The thing to say would have been, “Nah, he’s the captain, is his team, I’ll be fine wearing X and we’ll keep rolling”…… But if that’s the worst thing he said he did ok.

  • Adam

    Mike Silver asked a former Philadelphia coach to rate how much of a pain DeSean was to deal with

    His response: “10, just like his number.”

    • Will

      LMAO…rating 1-10 …10 being the highest…LMAO

  • oreofestar

    Do not be surprised if we draft Seferian-Jenkins if he is available at 54

    • oreofestar

      I like him anyway…

      • Will

        Yeah we need another TE on this team…

        • Adam G

          Philadelphia TEagles

          • Will

            good one touche..lol..

        • oreofestar

          I just think he is a guy Chip might really like but it depends how he board goes IF IN ROUND 2 lets say Adams, Matthews, Moncrief, Robinson and others are gone I think he’d rather take Jenkins than Richardson or Landry or something

          • Will

            coming off foot stress fracture surgery…

          • oreofestar

            still crazy talented but seemed unfocused at times from a sheer ability and ceiling standpoint he is on par with Ebron

          • Jerry Pomroy

            I don’t want no ADHD players. That’s how we give up TDs.

          • Hiral(GM)

            Unfocused but had a career year. Didn’t practice hard but had a career year. DeSean was a a$$hole buy he balled. You guys making jokes but he torches us??? Smh

      • Jerry Pomroy

        He’s only allowed on team if he drops the hyphen so I can say his name. I still don’t know how to pronounce James Ibehsnghihggo. You know the safety from the Ravens the Eagles had mild interest in.

        • oreofestar

          Lol I just would say Jenkins and lol at Ibehsnghihggo

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Dude you have no idea. My wife is a nurse and throws all these medical terms at me or I see them written in word form and I’m like how in the EFF do you say that??? It’s terrible.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            When I can’t say their name, they get a cool nickname.

          • ODBorBustAllDay

            Larry Jenkins

    • GEAGLE

      Isn’t that what I said yesterday? :)

      • oreofestar

        Maybe….don’t remember but I have been liking this kid and have decided to come out of the closet

        • GEAGLE

          How did your parents take it?

          • oreofestar

            ok….I guess :P

          • Jerry Pomroy

            You walked right into that one just as bad as my step son walking into walls. Good kid, but clumsy as hell!…lol

          • oreofestar

            I actually knew what I was getting into when I wrote it :P was not surprised at Geag’s respnse

          • GEAGLE

            :)

          • Andy124

            Taking one for the team. Gotta respect that.

          • oreofestar

            yeah…

          • Jerry Pomroy

            That was f#cking priceless!!

          • Will

            lol…

  • oreofestar

    Matthews, Robinson, Adams, Moncrief Murphy, Smith, Attaochu, Lawrence? I mean there are possibilities these guys are at 54 so are we better off waiting on OLB or WR because my assumption is those are the first 2 picks

    • Will

      BPA Daniel McCullers if he’s still there…we need a Monster in the Middle of the D to free everyone else up to make the plays…guy takes on 2-3 blocker’s 6’7″ 360lbs…Vince Wilfork type guy…nickname shade tree…

      • oreofestar

        Yeah but I do not think we take DT early if at all, we like Logan

        • Will

          Hey we need a NT guys his size with athleticism is rare….not sure when he comes off just hope it’s us getting him..He’s Kelce’s Nightmare talk about a mismatch

          • GEAGLE

            I wouldn’t call him athletic,…don’t see him as someone we would want to use to rush the passer, and I think our NT needs to be able to….I’m gonna have to go back and pay attention to the NTs Chip and Azz used….
            ..
            We are striving to become a team that switches back and fourth between different fronts. that traditional space eating War pig NT isn’t going to appeal to us….I think to figure out the NT we draft:
            1) Look at all the NTs..

            2) Then remove all the NTs that you would never want to have on the field in pass rushing situations(which should eliminate a high percentage of them)…
            .,
            3) out of the small number of NTs you would have left on your list, the ones with the most desired Charecter, commitment, toughness and intelligence will probably be the NTs we covet, with arm length also being factored in as tie breakers..

          • Will

            this is the guy he moves well and stays active demanding 2-3 blockers he just bull rushes C/OG backwards into the pocket and frees up players around him QB slipped out of the pocket took off running big man track em down 25 yards later and made the tackle check him out..still needs coaching but I would love to have this guy on are team…he has long arms….

          • GEAGLE

            So the NTs I think we would want are guys like Logan, Star Latuluie who can play NT/DE.., Brandon Williams(last years first round pick of Ravens), for this draft….Justin Ellis(if his arms were longer he would be such a no BRAINER)

          • Will

            he plays all along the line…gonna be a good pick up for somebody natural two gapper with a tremendous bull rush…

          • ICDogg

            A superior NT is a pocket collapser. Not a guy who shoots gaps.

          • GEAGLE

            Ok

        • Will

          Logan who?

    • ODBorBustAllDay

      Coleman. If we miss out on your boy Evans, he’s a big dominate aggressive target as well. Experts say 3rd round. I doubt he last that long with his size

  • ODBorBustAllDay

    NT PROSPECTS- I See conflicting reviews on Tuitt-ND some say mid 1st others not so sure.

    And Daquan Jones-PSU- might make it to Day2. I’m intriqued by both tho. What do you guys know/hear?
    Also, Geags was ranting about how much they like Bennie going forward. I have to agree. Was looking back at his draft grades/projection and it seem like they pulled the trigger and took him maybe a round above his projected spot. Didnt hesitate to dump Soap either and throw the kid to the fire. Both the guys I mention above are no worse than 3rds, it may not be a high priority to them.

    • GEAGLE

      Let me put it to you this way…you don’t draft a NT who needs to add serious weight and strength the first few years unless you absolutely LOVE,him….the friggin definition of NT is OVERWEIGHT….Bennie was no accident. That’s exactly who we want, and he sure looks like he won’t dissapoint

  • Gil

    Jackson already causing problems….he said at press conference today, he wants RG111 to change jersey #10 to #3……LOL.

    • G_WallyHunter

      Ya he joked about it, but I bet he was half joking inside

      • Gil

        No, I don’t think he was joking, below is the quote:

        Jackson is already starting trouble…..he wants RG111 to change his number 10 jersey.

        ….”“I definitely am familiar on the No. 10 [worn by] Robert Griffin,” Jackson said on a conference call with reporters, an hour after signing a three-year contract at Redskins Park. “We’ve talked about it a little bit. But that isn’t a decision that’s been made yet so far.”

        Jackson hinted that more discussions will take place between now and September.

        ….“Maybe by the time the season starts we’ll know,” Jackson said before adding with a laugh: “Maybe RG3 will wear No. 3 and I’ll try to get in [No.] 10. We’ll see how it goes, though. You never know.”…..

        • G_WallyHunter

          Ya better quote there, dono why two people have said he was joking… Why I said he was probably half joking inside haha, can’t wait to see him screw it all up in DC (hopefully)

          • Gil

            Yeah, Jackson is a selfish player…all he thinks about is me, me, me.

          • G_WallyHunter

            Coming to accept it I’m happy about it lol, excited to see who replaces him and move on without the me me player, screw it

        • Maggie

          “but that isn’t a decision that’s been made so far”??!! There is no decision. RGIII wears number 10. What’s to “decide”. Silly little twit. Childish.

        • Token

          lol can you imagine? Guy meets his new QB for the first time and asks if he will change his number. Wonder what ran threw RG3s head.

          • Will

            lol…

  • Will

    well in a 3-4 if you want to put pressure on a QB you need good LB’s and a Beast of a NT…Daniel McCullers is that guy….

    McCullers
    isn’t an explosive player off the snap of the ball. Instead, he wins
    with his hands, diagnoses the play, and reacts. No glaring weakness
    worth noting.TBD.Leverage/play strengthWhile
    McCullers tends to stand out of his stance rather than explode with
    good leverage, he is so strong that it almost doesn’t matter. He
    physically dominated his opponent in each of the four games I watched,
    at times tossing the OL aside like a ragdoll. That said, he needs
    to keep his base low and showcase more snap in his hips.TBD.Tackling abilityWill
    win in the hole vs. a RB or other ball carrier. Big, physical, and
    strong. Doesn’t appear to have any significant tackling deficiencies. TBD.Punch/hand placementElite
    hands. McCullers consistently gets his hands inside the OL’s and
    controls the action. He does a great job of extending his arms and
    generates a real jolt with his punch at the POA. He constantly makes
    the OL appear as if they’re on skates.TBD.Slip blocks/disengageMcCullers
    is a massive man, so he’s not going to slip by too many OL. That said,
    he uses his hands so well that he is able to disengage with relative
    ease. TBD.Motor/mean streakMcCullers
    definitely likes to lay the lumber. He works hard on a consistent
    basis, evidenced by the play vs. Florida when he ran down QB Jeff
    Driskel 25 yards downfield.TBD.When run atMcCullers
    is a big, strong, hard to move DT who consistently clogs running lanes
    and creates trash for the RB to navigate around. If he meets the RB in
    the hole, he wins.TBD.Range in pursuitNot
    a strength, but not as overwhelming of a weakness as I might have
    expected. He’s not a fast or overly quick player, but he stays active
    and finds himself in the action at the end of a play.TBD.Speed RushNot
    part of his game. He is not a speed pass rusher. He’s not overly
    explosive or quick off the snap, and relies on power to win at the POA.TBD.Power RushBuckles
    OL backwards and puts them on skates. Not fast or quick enough to
    consistently get pressure on the QB, but he’ll disrupt the pocket’s
    integrity and cause the QB to panic a bit.TBD.CounterMcCullers
    relies on power, and rarely shows any other pass rush moves. He’ll
    occasionally flash a swim move, but it’s not an asset at this point.TBD.Errors

    TBD.

    .CRITICAL FACTORSCommentsGrade.Size Elite, rare size for the position. 6’8″, 360 lbs. Will be able to play multiple positions for various defensive fronts.TBD.AthleticismGood
    athlete considering his size. Moves well for a 360 lb man. Won’t win
    many foot races, but is coordinated, rarely ends up on the ground, and
    knows how to use his natural strength.TBD.Explosion Needs
    to improve the explosion out of his stance. Tends to stand up rather
    than fire out of his stance. He wins on the college level due to his
    strength advantage, but NFL will be a different game.TBD.CharacterIncompleteTBD.Play speed Plays at a consistent speed. Doesn’t appear to take plays off, and for a man of his size, he doesn’t appear “slow”.TBD.TechniqueGreat
    use of hands out of his stance. Able to shed blocks on an elite
    level. Needs to work on firing out rather than standing up. TBD.

    .Strengths.McCullers
    is a big, physical, coordinated defensive tackle prospect who will be
    appealing to both 43 and 34 teams. He has the wide base, long arms and
    balance needed to play NT in a 34 front, and his ability to use his
    hands and control the action in front of him will be an asset for the
    position’s 2-gap responsibilities. While he’s not going to be a player
    that beats the OL with speed off the snap, he will be able to collapse
    the pocket with his strength and overall dominant style. McCullers does
    a great job extending his arms and creating separation from the OL
    which allows him to read, react, disengage and make a play. For a man
    his size, McCullers is surprisingly coordinated and athletic, rarely
    ending up on the ground and maintaining a commendable level of effort
    throughout the play. .Weaknesses.McCullers
    isn’t a sudden athlete. He’s a bit of a waist-bender at this point in
    his career, and needs to show that he’s improved his ability to sit in
    his stance and create good leverage off the snap. Has to work on
    keeping his base low, especially since he is such a tall prospect. If
    he continues to stand out of his stance, NFL OL will get under his frame
    and likely win at the POA. McCullers isn’t going to bring much to the
    pass rush, and is likely limited to a run-stopping role on first and
    second downs. He also needs to make sure he stays well-conditioned, as
    365 lbs is bordering on TOO big for a long, productive career in the
    NFL..Overall.The
    skill-set is there for McCullers to be a dominant college defensive
    tackle in 2013. He has the ability to consistently win at the POA with
    his combination of strength and hand technique. His inconsistent pad
    level and the overall lack of explosion out of his stance will be a
    concern for evaluators. McCullers needs to show that he has the ability
    to sit low in his stance and fire out at the snap of the ball. That
    said, guys with McCullers’s height/weight/strength/athletic ability
    don’t come along that often.

      We aren’t a 3-4 team….if we were, we would have drafted a Jon Jenkins type last year as opposed to a Bennie Logan type who still has to add weight and strength…..we are a multiple front defense,which means one play we could have a 3man line, next play we can have a 4 man line, under fronts…two gap single gap…VERSATILITY!!! Our NTs can’t tip off the other team…opponents can’t see is sub a NT in, and automatically know what we are doing because that NT isn’t versatile enough to play in all the fronts,,,
      ….
      There were a lot of big, space eating, War Pig NT in last years draft and we passed on a bunch of them to add a NT that still needs to add weight and strength? That’s NOT an accident,,,Eagles NT will be guys you can also see playing DE..Like star LATULULIE,, Brandon Williams..,types…..If you can’t see our NT rushing the passer as a 4-3DT, if you can’t see our NT stunting, twisting, If you can’t fathom him lining up as a 3-4DE…..He won’t be a NT in our defense….

      If Justin Ellis arms were longer, he would be such a no BRAINER,.,if you aren’t familiar with guys, and you will read scouting reports to find out about guys as opposed to watching film, I would suggest looking at the guys Who are said to be versatile enough to play NT and DE,,,like a Justin ellis

      • Will

        Tennessee played a 4-3 any way. I like this guy gonna follow his career if the PATs get’em gonna be pissed…

        • GEAGLE

          I love that kid…I’m not trying to put him down at all…just speaking generally about the style of our d…I know the merits of our multiple front defense, but I wish we wouldn’t use 4 man lines on 3rd down as often as we did last year, but without them 4man lines we waste Cox and Curry…I felt like we were always in a 4man line last year on 3rd down pass rush, usually 4-2-5. …I’d like to see more two gap 3-4 pass rush opportunities

          • Will

            well if I could draft any NT/DT he is the guy…

          • GEAGLE

            My real problem with him is I worry that it’s going to cost a really high,pick…like 2-4rds….we are in DESPERATE need of pass rush help which will REQUIRE a round 2-3 pick, don’t see how we can turn down one of the few pass rushers in a draft class that’s not deep at all in that area, to draft a space eater….we simply don’t have that luxury

          • Will

            If you can’t then get a NT to force pressure up the middle play Trent Cole another year..next year we go get our ROLB..or Braman is a pleasant surprise the mushroom guy……

          • GEAGLE

            Need 3 front 7 additions…I see no way around it.
            ROLB
            The player we pretend Casey Mathes was: basically a guy who can Backup Barwin AND sub in for Meco as a coverage LB in certain subpackages: guys like Christian Jones, Christian Kirksey, KVN
            ..
            And need at least one addition to our DL rotation,
            ..
            Add those 3 parts to the front 7 and we will be fine on the back end.

          • Will

            Plug in McCullens I’d say D_Line is set…need Cole’s replacement after this year, and Demecco soon I hate getting LB’s early when Safeties are in short supply and we need a good one to go with Jenkins other than that maybe a CB. I like how they cut all the Safety group and started over but we both know CK will go Offense first don’t we….lol…

      • Will

        I’ve watch a lot of Tennesse tape since I came across him in a NT search…Chip likes bigger player’s this guy is the biggest in the draft..raw needs coaching AZZ could do it…

        • GEAGLE

          I’ll say, I can’t recall seeing too many dudes just throw college OLineman around like this dude…did he run at the combine? Lol did Wilfork? ….think we will want a Richard Seymor type

      • Hiral(GM)

        Bruhh you can still run a hybrid 3-4 with an actual NT. it helps that the DT is versatile to DE but not a necessity. Look at Pittsburgh which te concept comes from. Dick lebaue style. Besides I told you Hageman would be a good fit. Even though he is 24 but his power along with Cox we could see something like the old Eagle DLine. Oh one more thing trading up to get Barr would be a big mistake. I’ve watched the film. Speed rusher that’s its.. We taking a LB in later round. Someone to develop Trent cole had 8 sacks last year in a new defense. You guys talking like he is done.

    • GEAGLE

      Think,the steelers will kidnap other GMs wives and hold them hostage til after the draft to make sure they get him lol..a beast like him with arms close to 37 makes you really wanna switch to a pure 3-4…..but he gets the “underachiever lazy tag” which you wouldn’t think because he isn’t a fat disgusting slob for a dude his size…he is about as lean as a 360lber could be…

      • Will

        I’m telling ya GOD we get Evans-WR,McCullens-NT,ROLB?, Bucannon-S, Bodine-C/OG, and a strong leg kicker…CK I trust…

        • GEAGLE

          I know nothing about his Charecter, work ethic…but a guy with his underachiever tag, I find a hard time seeing the eagles spend a 2nd or 3rd round pick on…..He does however have serious two gap potential, and a special type of upside…but I’m sure the Gaethers boys all had a special type of upside, but some were pretty average….if he were like a 5th round pick, I’d be higher on him, but that dude probably won’t last til the,4th

          • Will

            one thing I noticed not fat and doesn’t take plays off is disruptive as hell you put him btw Thronton and Logan( Bennie) man that’s a hell’va line…

          • GEAGLE

            Yeah he is more Bob Sapp type Lean, than that slob type for sure

    • Maggie

      Got to the end of your post. forgot how it started, lol.

  • Rick H

    Glad Jackson is gone!!! To say Jackson showed more class then the Eagles is about as ridiculous as anything I have heard.
    CLASS= Representing a team well that pays you as one of the very top players in the NFL.
    Jackson spent six CLASSLESS years here that is why they let him go. He was a problem IN THE LOCKER ROOM/ A PROBLEM OUTSIDE THE LOCKER ROOM/ there are dozens of stories about Jackson and his problematic behavior from the East cost to the West coast and in between. He is a very good description of CLASSLESS.
    The Eagles organization showed CLASS by tolerating him.
    Will he make some big plays against the Eagles YES. Will he be out of Washington in three years or less YES! 30 other teams did not want him. HE TOOK A LOT LESS MONEY! I wonder why??? I have heard nothing but CRICKETS & SILENCE FROM HIS FORMER TEAMMATES. That speaks volumes!!!

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Can someone please tell me WHY so many national experts link Barr to the Cowboys???? He’s as pure as it gets when it comes to a 3-4 rush OLB!! HE IS NOT A DE!!! Using him as one would be a travesty and take away one of gifts, his explosiveness off snap to leave defenders in the dust. Putting him in a 3pt stance takes away his ability to just blow by guys untouched.

    • Maggie

      You do know what “experts” means? “Ex” means old or former. “Spurts” means drips, possibly lying in scum-laden ponds on the ground. ;~)

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Well put

    • GEAGLE

      Coulda said the same exact thing about Miami and Dion last year….common sense doesn’t always rule

      • cliff henny

        feel bad for the guys that end up in wrong systems. guy like Curry who’s gotten hosed his first 2 years

      • LookinAtMyGucci

        Thoughts on adding Keisel for a year? Experienced two-gapper in Steelers 3-4. A good, high character player, can help teach as well as play in rotation, while buying us time to add another young’n next year instead of this year, should one not fall to us.

        • GEAGLE

          No idea what level he has been performing at recently….doubt we are interested in sighing DL…there were some cheap young good ones and we didn’t sign any so I doubt we would sign him

    • cliff henny

      would love for him or Evans to fall, but if it means Dallas is screwing up another 1st round pick, sorry, have to sacrifice him to the jerry jones lives forever god.
      .
      might even be worse for Barr, think they see him as olb in 4-3. plenty of idiots on bloggingtheboys pulling for him.
      .
      plus, they almost have to take Donald or Jerrigan, they have no one at DT

    • Will

      Ya think after Dion in Miami people would learn tsk tsk….

  • DoctorRick

    Theon asks, “Can I please have my fingers cut off rather than endure any more D-Jax flaying? Please?”
    Can we limit D-Jax to ONE thread a day and leave the others for the rest of us?
    “Please cut off my fingers.” Theon asked.

  • McNizzle

    Let’s face it fellas, we have no idea what the breaker is and won’t know squat until 2014 plays out.

  • Will

    We gonna be awesome come kick off in September…

  • oreofestar

    If we had the opportunity to trade our 3 for a 4,5,6, would ya

    • oreofestar

      I mean I would rather have 1,2,4,4,5,5,6,7 than 1,2,3,4,5,7

      • Will

        I want 1st rd 7th-9th, give up our 1st and next years 1st, keep 54 overall and then trade back are 3rd…1,2,44,55,6,7 and add one more pick for a traded player…

        • oreofestar

          where did you get 2 1s from

          • Will

            2015 1st and our 2014 22nd…to go up to the 7th-9th pick in the 1st…

          • oreofestar

            well then we lost our 1 you can not put a traded pick there

          • Will

            lost our one to get a 1…7th,8th,or 9th pick overall for our 1st this year and next year’s 1st…Geagle suggested moving our 2nd RD next year for picks…this draft class is suppossed to be deep with alot of Juniors coming out early so next year draft won’t be as strong so better to use the picks this year…

          • oreofestar

            I do not want to do what Geagle said he basically said get a pick 25 spots lower because this draft is so good and personally I would not but I would love to get out of that 86th because the difference between 4th and 6th rounders is not huge so might as well stack a ton of 5s and 6s

  • oreofestar

    I really want to trade out of our 3rd or 4th pick down by like an entire round and then stash some late picks

  • Will

    hard to say what they do without knowing who they are targeting and who are trade partner’s would be…

    • oreofestar

      still fun to speculate and I want to take our 3rd or 4th round pick and trade down a whole round

      • Will

        yeah ya think they trade a player, trade back at least once, or use some of next years picks…

        • oreofestar

          Yeah I think they should take their 3rd and move down like 40 spots and get an extra 5 and 6, try hard to trade BG for a 6th and if you love Barr or EVANS and I think these are probably the top 2 players on their board, if you love them I would rather give up next years picks or just stay put

    • John E. Zang

      I don’t know what it would take but I’d love if they traded up far and snagged Watkins. He’s a surefire beast for years to come.

      • Will

        If they go up I hope Evans is there…

        • oreofestar

          or Barr

        • John E. Zang

          I wouldn’t mind it but there’s absolutely no questions surrounding Watkins which is why he’ll be top five pick. I like Evans measurables but the fact he played with Manziel concerns me. Basically a lot of his yards came when the play broke down. He may be fine playing within scheme I just think he’s more of a risk to move up for.

  • John E. Zang

    I love how they keep writing these DJ articles and virtually everyone is talking about other Eagle related topics. It’s like we’re doing their job for them. You’d think they’d get the picture already.

    • John E. Zang

      “This just in…Desean Jackson Didn’t Care for Cheesesteaks”

    • G_WallyHunter

      Hey now, these writers save our day, everyday. They are following what’s popular, and I’d be willing to bet a very large number of readers are interested in what Desean has to say, just because a few commenters don’t doesn’t mean they should only cater to them.
      This is a blog for the people, the writers know that, I’m sure they will put Desean to rest as soon as they feel it’s necessary, he just signed yesterday

      • John E. Zang

        I don’t blame the writers so much as the trend of the media now in days. Gossipy type articles are much more in demand than articles with actual substance. They’re just doing their job.

        • G_WallyHunter

          Great point, I agree

  • Will

    No more DeSean Deadskin articles please………………….

  • oreofestar

    I really like the top 3 corners in this draft, but we have bigger needs but Davis was all over Fuller at his pro day and even introduced him to Chip

    • Will

      whose the top 3 CB?

      • oreofestar

        Gilbert, Fuller, Dennard in that order personally

        • oreofestar

          I do not think any other corner is worth a first round pick and that includes Verrett ad Roby

        • GEAGLE

          Exum
          SJB
          Fuller
          McGill
          Aikens

          • oreofestar

            I like Exum, and McGill for later picks

          • oreofestar

            Gilbert should not even be mentioned the 49ers will make sure he gets no where close to us but I am loving Fuller, I wish he was still a second rounder

          • OregonDucker

            I am surprised GEagle you have Exum ahead of Fuller?

          • GEAGLE

            My wants aren’t just being factored by the player, but also the type of pick you need to spend securing the player,..Obviously I wouldn’t want us to use a first on Exum, when a first on Fuller would be acceptable…basically, I’d rather spend a 4th on Exum, then #22 on Fuller,,…but if we take the round they are drafted in out of the equation then I wouldn’t be listing Exum ahead of fuller

          • OregonDucker

            Thanks for the reply GEagle. Your game-plan makes sense. I rarely doubt your logic on Defense but the earlier comment threw me. If we can fix Defense, and I believe we will, then the difficult schedule we have this year will not be as challenging.

  • DoctorRick

    I’m going away for a couple of days until D-Jax cools down.
    See ya

    • Will

      Who cools down?

    • G_WallyHunter

      couple of weeks?

      • oreofestar

        years

        • Will

          you guys are killing me LMAO…

      • Will

        LMAO spot on LMAO…

        • G_WallyHunter

          The Desean articles will go away in due time, I don’t want people bashing the writers just because of them, national media is all over it, Birds24/7 has to keep updated with it, I’d love to see how many views this page gets and then count up all of the different commenters complaining, the views would probably outnumber them 1000 to 1

          • Will

            It doesn’t matter to me I want see us play dc…lol…and win big…lol…

          • OregonDucker

            Me too Will – Win big in DC!

  • GEAGLE

    Giants signed Randy Ayers, and signed Mike Patt to one year deal….ayers ain’t bad

    • oreofestar

      Robert Ayers?

      • GEAGLE

        Yup…and yes out Mike P….C2J is getting cut next week. If he wasn’t such an idiot I’m sure Chip would have strongly consider adding hIM…”MORE WEAPONS”-Clif

        • Will

          Surprised Eagles didn’t go after RB Bluont…the ex pat rb…spelled wrong but you know who I mean…lol…gotta hope Bryce Brown gets it going this year…

        • cliff henny

          right! more more more!!! not cj2k. if eags want headcase, Isaiah crowell is the man. he may go UDFA. was he ever a beast at georgia freshman year

      • ODBorBustAllDay

        Randy Ayers was a bum ass Sixers coach.

    • Will

      Ex eagle Patterson? good for him good dude here for years…

    • oreofestar

      Tells me that they want to go offense with first pick, hopefully they do not touch Evans also it means the dream team is not complete

  • oreofestar

    People also do not realize Deseab went to WASH to reunite with his boy Clifton

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    He won’t play a snap this season.

  • Wayne Charles

    I think too many people are looking at the Wide Receiving Corp instead of our collective Receiving Corp. With the addition of Sproles, a healthy Maclin, maturing Ertz, Cooper, McCoy out of the backfield and the genius that is Chip; We are going to have a top 5 offense.
    One Crip don’t stop this show.

  • Inquizative

    Well the good thing about DeSean Jackson, inspite of it all, is he’s still RICH!! Very RICH, and has BIGGER chips that Chip Kelly. Also, Mr. Jackson, is lean, mean and in shape and Kelly is out of shape and has a lot to prove by cutting DeSean.

    “It was a humbling experience for myself, me being at the peak of my
    career and doing some great things in this league…I’m very humble for me
    to be where I’m at and being able to be released like that.”
    Okay regardless of his talent or attitude being good or bad, this guy is just clearly an idiot. He doesn’t know the definition of the word “humble.” Listening to him speak is painful.
    Have fun playing for a team owned by Dan Snyder. Punk idiot little bitch.

    • morgan c

      Also, would LOVE it if Earl Wolff or someone in our secondary just absolutely decapitates him in the first game we play him. I don’t care if it’s legal or not and a fine or suspension. Just smack him on his ass and he will become irrelevant. Damn, I’m fired up now.
