DeSean Jackson confirms rift with Donovan McNabb

DeSean Jackson joined LeSean McCoy, Brandon Marshall, and Adam “Pacman” Jones on the “I AM ATHLETE” talk show. He describes the relationship and how it ended. Everything revolved around his short-listing to the Pro Bowl in 2009. They chose him to run both at punt returner and wide receiver, the first in NFL all-star match heritage.

Jackson mentions in the podcast that McNabb told Michael Vick he wasn’t a fit choice for the nomination. It’s a rather daunting and crazy moment when the QB1 tells his backup that the WR isn’t desirable of the honorary selection he received.

QB Hurts is still very young, and as he gains more expertise, he will improve as a passer. He’s shown he can make a play with his feet to assist win matches. Yet, he still has room to improve as a gunslinger. New member A.J. Brown should sync flawlessly with DeVonta Smith to offer the Eagles the smart wide receiver pairing in the NFL. Hurts will be under a great deal of pressure in 2022, but the Eagles could make their case for a title run this year.
