Chip Kelly says DeSean Jackson's sideline rant is no big deal
The Eagles were one of five division leaders to lose Sunday, and the 48-30 beatdown at the hands of the Vikings didn't sit well with wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
The Eagles were one of five division leaders to lose Sunday, and the 48-30 beatdown by the Vikings didn't sit well with wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Specifically, he was upset about an underthrown Nick Foles pass that was intercepted near the Vikings' goal line. So frustrated, in fact, that Jackson didn't even pursue cornerback Shaun Prater, who intercepted the pass.
And once he got to the sidelines, Jackson unloaded on wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell.
"I talked to Bobby," coach Chip Kelly said Monday, via Philly.com. "I'll talk to DeSean, and we'll get things straightened out. It's not as big a deal as I think everybody wants to make it out to be."
Kelly's right: It's not a big deal. In fact, the most noteworthy thing to come of all this, as Bomani Jones pointed out this week on Highly Questionable, is how Jackson talks right past Riley Cooper like he's invisible, even when he's fired up about something completely unrelated.
That truly is commitment.
