Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

One of the main reasons I was/am a big fan of the DJ acquisition is that the cost simply is manageable. If he's an ass-hat we can cut bait with him pretty easy. If we get one great year or two good years I would be happy. I fully expect him to pull his patented "I want more money even though you just gave me more money last year" moves. So what? We punt and move on. NO harm no foul. We didn't waste a draft pick that we feel we have to get a certain amount of production for. We're not tied to him long-term. We signed him off the street.

So is McCoy when they stack the box.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

heard coach gruden say after friday's practice all good things about desean, showing up for voluntaries etc all normal fluff you expect to hear from a coach but then he did say if he had one negative it would be that desean sometimes looks like he is too cool for school out there.

it struck me as odd bc it seemed gruden didnt have to say it. he voluntarily added it in at the end.

"too cool for school" struck me as being a very apt phrase to describe desean jackson.

(understanding that i have zero experience as a teammate or coach of jackson and only hear and read what everyone else hears and reads).

i dont have a prob with "too cool for school". if he goes half speed on a route he knows he is not going to be targeted on in practice, i dont have a prob with that. it might not send the most positive message to younger receivers watching him, it might rub some other players who go 100% in practice no matter what a little bit the wrong way but i dont know .. im not there.

"too cool for school" sounds like a good description for what we heard out of philly and i could certainly see how a control/demand respect freak like chip kelly would be bothered by it. in college you can yell and micro-manage your student athletes a lot more than your stud diva receiver who drives sports cars and lives in mansions. the giants had a near revolt with coughlin, but then everyone got in line and they won a few SBs.

i also dont have a prob w the coach sliding in the comment. that may be his way of letting jackson know that he has noticed.

it may be nothing but a back end comment slipped in there. i dont know. but i do find the human dynamic interesting.

the redskins video vault is a little screwy today or i would have gone back and listened since i only heard it once in the car.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

The way I interpreted it was he makes things look effortless, I guess I was wrong. Thanks for the better clarification.
