What do you get when you cross an Eagle with a Jackass? Why, DeSean Jackson, of course. Andy Reid will more than likely be bald after the offseason and lockout come to a close. Having to sit back and listen to the inordinately immature remarks that continue to emanate from his juvenile players can only leave him pulling every single strand of hair out of his head. The latest bird to tweet his feathers off is none other than DeSean Jackson.
With Jackson, it really isn’t a matter of if he will flap his gums. It is a matter of when. DeSean has been quite taken with himself since last season and has been quite vocal about it. Alas, like many Eagles, he just doesn’t know when to keep his beak shut.
In his latest burst of stupidity, DJackass insulted a man calling into a radio show on SiriusXM (that I am not going to spend a second promoting) by flaming him with vicious, homosexual slurs. You can listen to it below:
Jackson’s remarks were made on June 30th. The grapevine seems to have worked a bit slow with this nasty bit of business. The pots have only just begun to stir. On Friday, DeMoron Tweeted Defollowing,
“WANNA BRING ME DOWN BUT IM OK!! THEY TRYIN KNOCC ME OFF BUT IM STILL ON!!”
If that weren’t enough he added,
“THEY LOOKN 2 TAKE YA DOWN AT ALL TIMES NO MATTER HOW POSITIVE AND WHAT U DO!! ITS ALWAYS AWAY THEY TRY TO GET YA…. IM STANDIN TALL”
After a grammar lesson, and probably a few calls from his PR people and legal team, he offered the following: ”
I am sorry for using words that I know to be hurtful and unacceptable in a recent radio interview. Intolerance is unacceptable and I apologize to anyone I have offended. I have made a mistake and would like to make it clear that words I used meant no disrespect to the Gay and Lesbian community.”
How quickly the militant, urban speak dissipates.
It is going to be an interesting year, if there is one, for Andy Reid. His players are already knee deep in drama that will come into play on the field. LeSean McCoy’s comments directed at Osi Umenyiora caused a lot of controversy and fueled a new hatred between a Super Bowl veteran and a relative rookie. DeKnucklehead’s despicable, over the top anti-gay insults will undoubtedly leave a bad taste in many a mouth throughout Philadelphia as well as the rest of the country.
This will be Reid’s 19th season as a coach in the NFL. He is one of the best and a class act. His players, however, not so much. Will he be able to reign in the jejune jackwads on his team? Perhaps…but doubtful. DeHomophobe is on his way to join the likes of Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, to name a few, in the locker room cancer category. The difference between him and the likes of TO and Moss can be seen in the video below:
I love Wednesdays!
