The 10K Club

DeSean Jackson and Quintin Demps were both fined $10,000 from the NFL for their celebration after Action Jackson’s punt return for a touchdown against the Redskins last Sunday.

Kind of ridiculous if you ask me.  All they did was fold their arms and pose for like 5 seconds and then run back to their respective sideline.  Bullshit.  Goodell is a douchebag.

The NFL was apparently fine-happy on Friday and also fined Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown and two linemen $10,000 each for their choreographed dance routine in Sunday’s 17-10 victory over the San Diego Chargers.

The league said Friday that choreographed celebrations by two or more players aren’t permitted, though no flags were thrown at the time in the game (anything but what DeSean and Quintin did).

These guys at least had a choreographed dance called the “Cupid Shuffle” which is a bit more then a pose for the cameras after a fantastic play.  At least let’s be fair here Commish.

The punt return video is below for your viewing pleasure, because we don’t see that them too often in Philadelphia:

Monday Night was not Jackson’s First Folley

Before showboating cost him his first NFL touchdown, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s antics cost him a touchdown in a high school all-star game.

Monday night, Jackson looked to be on the receiving end of a 61-yard touchdown pass from Donovan McNabb against Dallas. Instead, the pass play officially went for 60 yards when Jackson dropped the ball a yard short of the end zone while showing off after blowing past Dallas defensive backs Pacman Jones and Roy Williams for the apparent touchdown.

Philadelphia scored on the next play for a 27-21 lead, saving Jackson more embarrassment.

Those who have followed Jackson’s career since he starred at Long Beach Poly had flashbacks Monday night, remembering that Jackson did the same type of thing in the 2005 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

In that one, Jackson hauled in a long pass and looked to be in position to score a 53-yard touchdown. Instead, he decided to do a flip from about the 5. One problem: The ball hit the ground at the 1 and Jackson lost control after the ball hit the turf. He also was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Jackson still was named MVP of the all-star game, finishing with a TD pass on a trick play and seven receptions for 141 yards.

My Thoughts on Eagles Cowboys Game

First of all, that could have possibly been the most entertaining professional football game I have ever seen.  The first half was incredible, back and forth, score for score, up and down the field, no holds barred, offensive showdown.  It was truly incredible.

Now I have Terrell Owens in my fantasy league and he single handedly won this weeks match for me, which I had already conceded in my mind, hoping for an Eagles victory and some stellar defense on TO.  But a 72 yard TD catch later and I had a fantasy win and my head in my hands.

Sean Considine – What on Earth are you doing out there?

Big Red – Why on Earth do you have Sean Considine in the game?  Why are you running a zone prevent in the first quarter?  Why are you not blitzing Tony Romo?

Anyway after that Brian Westbrook came back and showed Dallas what a real running back is.  B West shook everyone out there shoes and cruised down the field on a screen here, a draw there, and a little screen to the outside to score.  Oh and what the fuck is up with these NFL referees this year?  How many facemask penalties were missed last night?  I counted at least 3, possibly 4.  Basically the only way the Cowboys can tackle #36 is by illegally grabbing the shit out of his grill piece.

And then the Donovan McNabb fumble.  What the hell was that Donnie?  You faked out your own running back and then tried shoving it into his hands and ended up slamming it into his side as B West is already getting hit by the Dallas D.  Come on man, your smarter then that.  And why dont you throw the ball away when your outside of the pocket and about to get sacked.  Instead you take a 7 or 8 yard loss which eventually led to the following situation.

Andy Reid down 4, needs to score a touchdown, 4th and 12 and he throws the ole hook and ladder short of the first down hopping to catch the Dallas D sleeping.  Not quite Andy.  Piss poor play call at the end.  It makes me pretty nervous knowing that Andy Reid has to rely on trick plays to stay in a close game at the end.  Blows my mind.

All in all, a positive effort from the Eagles minus the a-fore-mentioned.  We proved we are top dawgs in the NFL alongside Dallas and our offense is back with a healthy Donovan and we look pretty damn unstoppable.  I cannot wait to see what happens when we get Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown back.  Oh and DeSean Jackson, your the man, but SCORE THE fucking TOUCHDOWN before you start to celebrate.  Jesus Christ man.

Eagles Cowboys Prediction

Written by Guest Writer, Chris Rak.

Final Score : Eagles  33   CowGirls  14

The Scoring Summary Please:

  • Demps 98 yard KO Return to start the game.  7-0 Eags out to an early lead.
  • Owens pours popcorn in his eyes after his only TD (cause I need him to score just one for me to win fantasy this week) and blinds himself with the butter out for the game, 7-7.
  • DeSean Jackson, 43 yard TD catch burning Pacman Jones.  14-7 Birds.
  • Then Jessica Simpson tries to distract the Eagles Defense by flashing her tatters on the big board, however she only distracts Romo who’s never ACTUALLY seen her naked.  Pacman instantly starts making it rain throwing hundred dollar bills in the air towards the big screen she’s on from the sidelines distracting TO who can’t believe Pacman is back to the same old shit.   Lito picks off the pass and heads towards the endzone.  While returning for a touchdown he picks up each and every one of those hundo’s Pacman is raining cause we all know he thinks hes underpaid.   21-7 Eagles.
  • Before the half Donnie runs for a 34 yard scramble and scores a touchdown.

HALFTIME: Eagles  28   CowGirls  7

  • Opening kick off of the second half Pacman tries to make up for first half blunders and returns the kickoff to the 10.
  • Next play Dawkins blitzes.  Picks up Romo completely off the ground throws him 7 yards back into the end zone safety.  30-7 Eagles.
  • Then, Lito showing he’s not joking about paying him, lets Felix Jones (also on my fantasy squad so if he or TO score I win, yes I don’t know how I have too many cowboys, trust me, I’ve tried trading them) run right past him without even budging, just staring at Joe Banner.  30-14.
  • 0:37 left in the game B West breaks a 44 yarder then just falls down at the 1 yard line (we’ve all seen it before), but this time Lito calls a timeout with 1 second left to spite the Birds.  Its ok, pad the stats, David Akers bangs the field goal.

GAME SET MATCH:  Eagles  33   CowGirls  14

Well Chris, now that would be awesome and quite possibly the single most entertaining football game of all time, but I see otherwise.  I still see a very entertaining game, minus all the hoopla and shenanigans.  I see Donovan McNabb being on point, a healthy Brian Westbrook making defenders miss, and a solid effort by our revamped Defensive unit, giving the Eagles a winner in a thriller, 31 – 24.
