Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson doesn’t miss ex-quarterback Donovan McNabb. And now that McNabb is with the Redskins, he’d prefer that Jackson not talk about him.
Jackson told Sporting News he was “very happy with the decision” by the Eagles to trade McNabb and make Kevin Kolb the starter.
And Jackson wasn’t done there, saying that he doesn’t view the Eagles as having suffered much of a loss, even if their quarterback for the last 11 seasons is no longer with the franchise.
“I don’t think we lost anything, even with McNabb being gone,” Jackson said.
When McNabb learned of those comments, he wasn’t pleased.
“It’s so wild when people get to talking when you’re not there, but when you’re there everybody loves you,” McNabb said. “So I guess people will go deeper into it than I will. I’m a Redskin, no longer an Eagle. I had 11 great years and I’m moving on with my life, so whoever may say things when I’m gone, more power to them, but it’s not making you look like a bigger man.”
