2) Did the rumors of DeSean Jackson being affiliated with a gang come as a surprise you?

The rumors didn’t surprise me because of his affiliation with known gang members. It doesn’t take much effort to speculate gang ties. What was surprising is how the rumors were tied to the reason Jackson was fired. And how the reports took off like wildfire. The rumors took on a life of their own and just kept on going. The media took the timing of the report from stating Jackson’s “gang-ties” and the firing of Jackson and speculated that was the reason they fired him.


3) How do you think the Eagles offense will be impacted without DeSean Jackson in the lineup?

I believe they lost the dynamic edge he brought to the team. None of the other wide receivers have the explosive ability Jackson has. I think they will be a different team without him. I believe Kelly will make adjustments and they will be fine. The offense will be different but I still think the Eagles will put a lot of points on the board this season. Jeremy Maclin has the ability to be a very dynamic receiver and Kelly knows how to capitalize on his talent. And he’s proven he can use Riley Cooper’s talent to get big production.

    Nice article, skins fan but I enjoy a non-biased article. Good read.

    • Maurice Barksdale

      Thanks. I thought it would be a good idea to see what the other side was thinking about DeSean Jackson.

    • SactoSteve

      What would a “non-biased” article say? That Jackson isn’t one of the better receivers in the league? That the Eagles were geniuses for getting rid of him and the Skins were idiots for signing him?

      Did it ever occur to people that the stuff about “gang ties” might have been leaked to the media by the Eagles front office to cover their butts?

      • Maurice Barksdale

        A possible leak from the Eagles is one of the things the NFLPA is going to investigate, but it’s going to be very hard to prove.
