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.

As a giants season ticket holder I am a leader in the "Jackson is a punk" fan club. I actually think that's being kind on a "boi" who is the biggest piece of garbage I've seen in a long time in sports. The dude has no class and needs to get laid out on the football field. I would spit in his face if I ever saw him on the street. If all athletes were like him I'd find another hobby and stop watching sports. Pay back is coming for you Buddy!

i dont blame scobee, at least he has the balls to say it. Jackson is a greedy, cocky bitch. He thinks he deserves top 5 WR salary...please, until he plays like a top 20 reciever, he should keep his mouth shut

Jackson sure can talk up a storm! Where's it at on the field? Maybe Desean should lay down on the turf to answer that question. That way maybe no one will hit him.

I like how people come on here and bash Scobee for being a kicker.  Can we try not to bash people because of their position in life.  Especially when our position is behind a keyboard.  Now if you want to bash Scobee for being a bad kicker it is an open forum.
