DeSean Jackson: Eagles WR Chewed Out In Front of Teammates by Andy Reid
DeSean Jackson, who only had two catches for 26 yards in the Eagles' loss to the Chicago Bears yesterday, reportedly was given a public dressing down by coach Andy Reid.
According to the report on NFL.com, Reid was very unhappy by what he perceived as Jackson's "casual attitude" before and during the game.
Jackson is one of the Eagles' main playmakers, and if he isn't giving the team 100 percent of his effort, then you can point to that as a reason the Eagles lost.
When you have two teams with as much talent as the Eagles and Bears, it often comes down to who wants the victory more. It seems, by this report, that the Bears wanted it more than Jackson did.
Andy Reid still has no Super Bowl on his head coaching resume, and this season was beginning to look like his best chance in years to get there with how well Michael Vick is playing. But if his No. 1 wide receiver already is taking plays off, the Eagles are in trouble.
Reid absolutely did the right thing calling Jackson out in front of the team. When it's a question of effort, the only way to correct that action is to make sure the rest of the team is aware of it, and knows the guy in charge is aware of it.
The Eagles don't have a lot of room to lose in the NFC East, and every game just got that much more important for the rest of the season with yesterday's loss.
