Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman maintained the same “safe speak” mode as their head coach, Chip Kelly, on Monday in explaining why the Eagles cut Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson, after a career-best season.
Kelly had not publicly spoken on the subject since Jackson was released—until Monday.
Floyd Mayweather feels confident, as he should, for his May 3rd challenge from Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But there’s someone that always seems to haunt the undisputed best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and that’s the constant specter of Manny Pacquiao.
It was like Christmas in April for Eagles and NFL fans. And it was rather easy as to what everyone was narrowing their eyes on and that’s the Washington Redskins and Eagles’ erstwhile receiver DeSean Jackson.
For many local runners, they made sure they were going to run in this year’s marathon.
Bernard Hopkins wants it known he’s not chasing Floyd Mayweather, just that there is a viable option out there for a huge pay-per-view fight if the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world wants it.
Once it was over, the temptation was easy to go there: Manny Pacquiao was proclaimed “back” by his multitude of minions after he vanquished the game, though out-skilled Tim Bradley last week, avenging the grave injustice that was done to “Pac-Man” the first time they fought.
Boxing has a way of eating everything around it. It deflates bodies, bank accounts, fan interest, but it never had a chance to sink its teeth into Hopkins’ marrow.
It’s what Glen Macnow intended, when he went in on the Conshohocken Brewing Company, located at 739 East Elm Street, open from Mon-Thurs. (5-10 PM), Fri. (5-11 PM), Sat. (12-11 PM) and Sun. (12-10 pm).
The old man is at it again, railing against the tethers of time, and all the doubters. Doing all of the unusual things he usually does, like defying all logic and commonsense.
It seems as if DeSean Jackson never really embraced Chip Kelly’s innovative sports science system, nor Kelly himself, according to a number of sources. Whereas everyone else appeared to buy into what Kelly was preaching, Jackson at times wasn’t in lockstep with the group. The two always seemed to be at odds with each other.
At least someone associated with the 76ers will know what the taste of winning is like this basketball season.
In the days following DeSean Jackson’s release by the Eagles, speculation ran rampant as to the reasons why. Everything was to blame from Jackson’s petulant, rambunctious sideline behavior, to his alleged gang ties, to Jackson’s character, to this being Chip Kelly’s fault.
We want to believe in Chip Kelly. We really do. We want to believe he knows what he’s doing.
The way it looks now, the Eagles have considerably weakened themselves on the field by extracting DeSean Jackson, while potentially extremely strengthening the Washington Redskins, their NFC East rivals, if the ’Skins sign him.
