We just love this image of Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson who claps back at Philly Fans booing him in the old home of Philadelphia on Saturday night. DeSean isn’t sure why there was this reaction.
“It’s disturbing to come back and get the boos from the crowd and the fans because it’s not my decision to leave,” Jackson said. “Chip Kelly released me. Knowing what I did for the city, in the community and things like that, I put my heart into it. That part is frustrating, but it doesn’t get any better than coming in here and winning and putting them out. That guy over there, he was the coach. He made the decision, but I’m happy to be where I’m at, and we’re having a lot of success over here.”
We think that Jackson is absolutely right. He was a very good player in Philadelphia, and it was not his choice to leave. In his only year playing, Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. This year, no Eagles receiver is approaching those numbers. It’s easy to see why Eagles fans are disappointed by that, but hard to see why Jackson should get the blame.
Kelly decided he didn’t want Jackson on the team anymore, so Kelly sent Jackson packing. If Eagles fans don’t like that, they should boo Kelly, not Jackson.
Who do you think should be getting Boo’ed?
