DeSean Jackson Rant: Video commentary from Solomon Jones

I AWAKENED at 3 in the morning and learned DeSean Jackson to the Redskins was a done deal. As a lifelong Eagles fan, I’m angry about it, not just because of the way it was handled by our new coach,  Chip Kelly, but also because it is just another example of what I’ve seen all my life from Philadelphia teams.

My DeSean Jackson rant is below. Watch the video now, and “like” if you agree.

Damn, Homey!!! You went in!!!!!! I’m seriously rethinking my fandom.

Solomon Jones

I hate to see history repeated, so I thought it was important to frame this DeSean thing and give it some historical context. Chip Kelly needs to understand what the fans are going through. We have gotten rid of our best players in the past and it has never worked out to our advantage. It has to stop.


Wow Bro you said what so many Eagles fans feel.


I’m Rodney W.Smith! I’m a Customer Service Rep, I’m a DJ, I’m an Eagles Fan!!

I know somebody that works 2 the Linc, and they told me that Desean Jackson wasn’t liked by alot of the players cuzz they think he’s too childish.

Nice job with your web site Mr. Solomon. Being the Riley Cooper fan that I am, I hope the most white football team in the NFL wins. It may not have the most talent, but it will have the greatest, unselfish team spirit, without racial rancor, or individual showboaters more concerned with their own great plays rather than team wins.

I was always more impressed with people like Brian Westbrook : a very humble man who demonstrated great character. With him I see a great man, not a skin color.
