Scobee and Jackson in Twitter disagreement

You could understand why Eagles fans -- not to mention the team’s coach -- would be upset by DeSean Jackson these past few weeks.

After all, he slept through a Saturday special teams meeting, leading Andy Reid to bench him in Week 10, and then last week, after making a 50-yard reception, he flipped the ball to Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, drawing a personal foul penalty and losing the entire gain.

But you know the moment you’ve really crossed the line? When another team’s kicker comes at you sideways on Twitter.

Scobee tweet

On Sunday, after Jackson’s ball presentation to Fewell, Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee tweeted the following: “Desean Jackson is a punk. #growuputinybastard.” To further clarify his thoughts, Scobee then wrote: “Relax people. He’s just a punk which means to me he doesn’t respect anyone or anything around him. Therefore I don’t respect him.”

On Tuesday, Jackson finally got around to responding, and he didn’t take to Scobee’s opinion all that kindly, writing, “This man @joshscobee is Waaaaaaay outta LIne!! Stick to ya Own business.. Mind ya own!! I don't respect what u sayin.. Lil Boi status.”

Jackson tweet

As the Big Lead points out, the tale of the tape if the two ever got into the boxing ring favors Scobee, who’s 6-foot-1 and 192 pounds compared to Jackson’s 5-10, 175-pound frame.

On Monday, Scobee backtracked by writing, "Shouldn't have called Desean Jackson that, I used the wrong words to try and make my point."

Maybe in order to settle this, Scobee could attempt really long field goals, and if they fall short, Jackson could attempt to run them back for touchdowns. Other than that, this is just a good ol’ Twitter feud that, unlike Osi Umenyiora vs. LeSean McCoy, is likely to end sooner rather than later.

Desean Jackson is like a turd in the grass. The further away from the turd the better. If you get to close to the turd the smell will disgust you. If you come into contact with the turd you have to clean yourself up, pick up the turd and throw it into the garbage where turds belong. Desean Jackson is a turd.

Think about fantasy,  brotha.  You cost me 5 points and a W!  Also,  you can have a retarded thought process and still have a normal i.q.  Quit giving one word so much power and embrace your language.  By the way,  my p.c. handbook is from 05' could one self-rightious posters send me a link for the current issue?

As an Eagles fan I can't really agree with the "overrated" comment... Jackson makes like $600,000.00 a year and if you ask most Eagles fans he's not our #1 receiver (Maclin is, look at the stats).  Yes, DJack is always a threat, but look at his catches per year, it's nothing crazy.  At the same time, look at his yards per catch and yards after catch and it's also pretty ridiculous.  Please stop with this dream team BS- the eagles don't even pay desean jackson a million- i bet a lot of you out there wish you had a productive receiver like that for 600k.  and btw, most birds fans don't agree with his antics either

Calling someone "retarded" because they say something you find to be stupid is completely ignorant.

Sundevil, to actually think that God cares enough about what someone posts to "bless you with a special needs child" shows that you truly are retarded.  Please do society a favor and do NOT procreate.  You sir are truly a fool.

It's all petty really. What DeSean did was pretty stupid. He put himself in a position to be called out by anyone. I'm no fan of his antics. Nor am I an Eagles fan. But he's not a bad player either. But to even be worried about what Scobee has to say about it pretty much shows Jackson's embarrassment. If not, he would have said nothing at all or given a Peyton Manning-esque "liquored-up kicker" comeback.

Well this all may be true, where are your 'Dream teamers' gonna finish up at? 6-10 at best? Jackson is a waste of talent and he's never gonna win a thing in his life cause he is a major douche bag!  Keep on taunting and pretending your the man! Loser
