Angry Eagles accuse LaRon Landry of spitting, dirty play

After the Eagles finished whipping the Redskins on Monday night, several Philadelphia players said trash talk and dirty play from Redskins safety LaRon Landry motivated them.

Eagles center Mike McGlynn claims that Landry spat in his face twice during the game.

Landry came and spit in my face, and that fired us all up,” McGlynn said, per Philadelphia Sports Daily. “We were looking to really put the afterburners on them. It’s good to see that we came out and score 60 points, almost. We all want to play the game with all the respect in the world, but when you’re disrespectful like that. . . . I just think there has to be more respect for the game than that. It’s a terrible thing, and we said, ‘Let’s just keep pouring it on them.’ ”

This is the second straight week that an NFL player has accused an opponent of spitting in his face: Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder said Ravens fullback Le’Ron McClain spat in his face during a confrontation last week, although the NFL said there was no conclusive evidence of the spitting. If Landry was caught spitting on tape, however, he’ll likely be heavily fined, and maybe even suspended.

But that’s not all that had the Eagles fired up. Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who suffered a concussion on one of the plays that led to the NFL’s increased emphasis on player safety this season, said Landry came up to him before the game and threatened to knock Jackson out.

“He brought up my concussion, and said, ‘I’m going to put you asleep again,’ ” said Jackson.

Landry’s comments led to a pregame skirmish, and some of Jackson’s teammates said Landry had gone way too far.

“Everybody trash talks, but there are certain things you talk about and certain things you don’t,” Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin said. “In incidents where someone is really hurt, or life-changing incidents like that – you don’t talk about those type of things. Thirty was running at the mouth a little too much.”

So Landry got the Eagles fired up. And the Eagles’ revenge was displayed on the scoreboard.

    LaRon, and Le’Ron must be the feminine and masculine forms of the French verb, “to spit”.

  2. cleverbob says: Nov 16, 2010 7:49 AM

    Wait, so Landry didn’t put him down? What happened, Skins fans? I didn’t bother to watch the game because you all said the Eagles would just get stomped. Why don’t you guys give me a recap? How did Donovan do? Did he start earning that $40 mil?

  3. phillyhomer says: Nov 16, 2010 7:59 AM

    Hey Landry, save your trash talking for your owner. He was the one dumb enough to give McNabb 80 mil.

  4. dg0122 says: Nov 16, 2010 8:01 AM

    he never got close enough to spit on Maclin or ‘put him to sleep’ on the first play of the game…

    typical LSU trash

  5. 4sacroc says: Nov 16, 2010 8:03 AM

    Landry’s a punk … just like Sean Taylor, another spitter who they continue to idolize in DC.

    They also still idolize Marion Barry.

    Losers love losers.

  6. 333rpm says: Nov 16, 2010 8:03 AM

    Good move Landry. Those treadmarks on the back of your jersey are courtesy of DeSean Jackson. It took him 18 seconds.

  7. touchdownroddywhite says: Nov 16, 2010 8:07 AM

    Well I’m sure even if the NFL doesn’t do anything to Landry, plenty of people on the team will know who to thank for a thorough embarrassment. Besides themselves, that is.

  8. flipadelphia says: Nov 16, 2010 8:10 AM

    I’m not surprised. Redskins fans idolize thugs because they make them feel tougher, kinda like the last safety they had that spit in someones face. As a matter of fact that’s the only way the Redskins have beaten anyone this season…by hurting key players on the other team. Cheap shots and late hits will do the trick.

    I tell you, Landry sure looked tough standing over top of Eagles after a hit…..WHEN HE’S DOWN BY 30! Tough guy. Someone should’ve tapped him on the shoulder and pointed to the scoreboard.

    Keep up the good work and great signings redskins.

  9. heywoodjablome says: Nov 16, 2010 8:16 AM

    All I want to know is….where are all of the “LMAO’s” at now regarding the McNabb trade? Haha, Redskins are stuck with that bum of a QB!

  10. 706vet says: Nov 16, 2010 8:17 AM

    Wow, could this spitting attack be racially motivated? Bill Romanowski was skewered with the racist tag after his “classy” spitting incident.

  11. pocketsstraight says: Nov 16, 2010 8:18 AM

    “In incidents where someone is really hurt, or life-changing incidents like that – you don’t talk about those type of things.”

    Yeah, like cheering when Michael Irvin was motionless on the turf with a neck injury?

    Or when they cheered after a fan shot a flare gun into the opposing teams bench?

    Or when they pelted Santa with snowballs?

    Or when they threw batteries at JD Drew?

  12. blackglass3 says: Nov 16, 2010 8:19 AM

    Thanks, LaRon. My fantasy team played Vick and DeSean last night. Yeah, I lost that game.

  13. dccowboy says: Nov 16, 2010 8:20 AM

    Looks like Landry is taking ‘how to be a punk’ lessons from DeAngelo Hall.

  14. boysroll says: Nov 16, 2010 8:28 AM

    laron landry is the biggest POS in the league. the whole org is for that matter….bunch of thug a.. losers who suck and only care about themselves. that was the biggest beatdown I have ever witnessed watchling an nfl game and that dopey org just gave mcchoke a huge contract. he looked horrible once again and meanglo hall was toast all game too. loser landry sucks so bad and gets burnt game in and game out.

    how did this team win a game this year? andy reid is a genius has he suckered the 4skin org into taking that POS off his hands for 2 future long term players. this org will never get it and I wish they would ahve shown that weasel circus midget in his box crying like a little girl…LMAO.

    LaRon Landry = stupid thug.

  16. bbb82 says: Nov 16, 2010 8:37 AM

    If I got spanked that bad in a football game, I’d probably be pretty upset and say some irrational things too.

    But don’t give me this…”We all want to play the game with all the respect in the world.”

    Your team came out after scoring 35 in a quarter and continued to run up the score. Don’t act all surprised at people’s reactions.

  17. cleverbob says: Nov 16, 2010 8:43 AM

    They put 35 on the Skins because those classless thugs Landry and Hall told Jackson that they were going to give him a concussion right before the game started, hence the skirmish.

    Pay attention next time.

  18. wetdentist says: Nov 16, 2010 8:45 AM

    @bbb82 . . . maybe if the Redskins hadn’t scored a few times, the Eagles could have quit putting points on the board. it was the Redskins fault for feigning effort after 35 . . .

    =========

    Did you sympathize with Keith Brooking lamenting the Vikings ‘running up the score’ too?

    I can’t believe you are justifying Landry’s behavior because they ‘ran up the score’. It’s the defenses job to stop the offense from scoring, it isn’t the offenses job to try not to score.

  20. mfclock says: Nov 16, 2010 8:55 AM

    @bbb82 stop crying about running up the score. don’t like it? do something about it! skins deserved to get that ass spanked last night..

  21. hoobsher says: Nov 16, 2010 8:58 AM

    WOW stay classy washington, you cant even make losing look good. at least when the lions lose, they accept and deal with it. but seriously, if this turns out to be true, the redskins have lost whatever respect they may or may not have had in my eyes. although they did just sign mcnabb to 5/78mil so this is just the cherry on top of the dumbass pie that is now the washington redskins

    Run up score? It was 1st quarter, Nitz!

    Skins flat-out stink.

    They are paid millions to stop Eagles and could not.

    Eagles called off the “dogs” in second half.

    Now go change your panties, dumb-ass.

  23. rickah8888 says: Nov 16, 2010 9:01 AM

    Cowboys win ONE game and all of sudden “boysroll” is a loudmouth. When YOUR BOYS lose another 3 in row, it will be amusing to see you vanish…much like your team!

    You see Philly has been a contender for over a decade…Dallas has been barely relevant for over 15 years!!

  24. blackglass3 says: Nov 16, 2010 9:05 AM

    There is no “running up the score”. This is the National Football League, not friggin Pee Wee football. Offenses have a job; get points for their team. Defenses have a job; stop the offense. Don’t get your panties in a bunch because the Eagles did their job and the Skins stood around watching.

    If anyone on the Redskins D had an ounce of self respect, they would return thier game check to Daniel Snyder, or donate it to a charity. They sure as hell don’t deserve to get paid after that joke of a game.

  25. FinFan68 says: Nov 16, 2010 9:06 AM

    @boysroll
    I seem to remember the skins winning 1 game this year because a TD was called back when an o-lineman mugged somebody on the final play of the game.

    Ummm………..yeah. I guess that comment would make more sense if the focus of the article hadn’t been on something Landry said BEFORE the game.

    And enough “running up the score nonsense”. If you don’t want someone to score, stop them from scoring.

    Besides, Vick is on my fantasy team.

    Please.
    Run up the score? Did the Redskins not have something to do with the score of the game at any point last night?

    You can’t expect the other team to stop playing just because you did.
    If you don’t want to get your ass kicked on national TV then step up and do something about it and I don’t mean spitting in someones face or talking crap either.

    If you are not man enough to play the game then at least be man enough to take your ass whipping like one.

  29. skleech22 says: Nov 16, 2010 9:15 AM

    McClain and Landry should have a spit off in Goodell’s office!

  30. pedsaregoodforsports says: Nov 16, 2010 9:17 AM

    STFU with that running up the score BS. IT was 35-0 and then the skins scored 14 pts. What were they supposed to do, stop? Gimme a break. The birds whipped that @ss, and after reading why their was a pregame skirmish, the shouldve put 100 on em. Which they very well couldve.

    Oooookay, so Philly was up 35-0 in the 1st quarter(maybe early 2nd, not sure)…are you suggesting that we kneel on the ball for the rest of the game??
    You sir, are an idiot!

    Our BACKUP RB had over 100yds!! Do you want us to just pick people out of the stands to play? Maybe Washington could stop them, and I stress “maybe”.

    Again: You sir, are an idiot!

  32. easyeddie says: Nov 16, 2010 9:22 AM

    Hey bbb82: I’d be upset and saying irrational things too, but to my own team and myself. And sorry, but the Eagles did not run up the score — they couldn’t help but score considering how horrible Washington looked. Look at the scoring summary — its 35-0 when Washington scores 2x to make it 35-14; TD and a field goal from Eagles and its 45-14; Skins score first in 3rd Q making it 45-21 with nearly the whole 2nd half to go. But what does Phily do? Do they throw more downfield bombs? No, Phily goes to the ground, but McSham throws pick-6 to seal it. Face it: Washington got its backside handed to them no matter how you spin it.

  33. dumemi says: Nov 16, 2010 9:37 AM

    Talking trash that you can’t back up on the field and the scoreboard is worse than stupid; it’s low-class, and assinine. Now, after being beaten 59-28, a loss motivated by his infantine blather and total lack of sportsmanship, he’s the one being laughed at. What a fool?

    He needs to man-up and start playing football the way it’s supposed to be played. Vince Lombardi would never tolerate a walking, talking rectum like Landry on one of his teams.

  34. peterkingisabottom says: Nov 16, 2010 9:55 AM

    Disgusting classless franchises like Philly deserve to be spat on, stay classy with your dog murdering ex convict. Your time is coming.

  35. flashdeath says: Nov 16, 2010 9:57 AM

    Reason #700 that I don’t watch football any more. The thugs are making their way into the NFL as well. Can’t wait until a DB pops a cap in a WR’s ass to bring him down. The Circus Maximus had nothing on these guys.

  36. tatum064 says: Nov 16, 2010 10:11 AM

    Landry’s a punk … just like Sean Taylor, another spitter who they continue to idolize in DC.
    ====================================
    Sean Taylor would knock you out, Landry’s words were misused….he paid the price, but he’s having a great season. R.I.P. Taylor, in poor taste to call someone who was gunned down a punk.

    But, are we really expecting class from Philly fan?

  37. fortphiladamsterdam says: Nov 16, 2010 10:15 AM

    When’s the last time you heard a coach say to his team ” OK guys, let’s go out there and not try our hardest on this series!” It’s not running up the score, its earning your ridiculously huge paycheck. Redskins should try that sometime. Especially Mr. $40million apology

  38. 4sacroc says: Nov 16, 2010 10:15 AM

    Meanwhile, up in Baltimore, Jim Zorn is peeing his pants laughing.

  39. fortphiladamsterdam says: Nov 16, 2010 10:17 AM

    Besides… Eagles were on pace to score 140 POINTS!!! That would have been running up the score. They stopped at less than half of that. Deal with it, your team is a huge piece of crap from the anus of dan snyder.

  40. nyjetsholdupsbtrophyin2010 says: Nov 16, 2010 10:17 AM

    Maybe Landry ,meant he’ll Fall down after getting burnt on the first play of the game , I think its time for him and Mr.nobody has got burnt more than me DeAngelo Hall to just STFUP,and be happy Snyder overpaid for there lack luster services

  41. comeonnowguys says: Nov 16, 2010 10:21 AM

    I didn’t know there was a race to see who would be named the Sean Avery of the NFL.

  42. dallasbaby says: Nov 16, 2010 10:35 AM

    Being a Cowboys fan, I detest both of these teams, although I have grown to respect Michael Vick. But Landry is just way, way out of line. He and DeAngelo Hall are just classless punks. You want to sit there and threaten a man’s health and livelihood, then cry like a little girl because they “ran the score up?” You’re damn straight! I thought it was hilarious, I was hoping they would break 60 points.
    Landry was whining because his immature comments lit a fire under Jackson’s behind and Vick lit up the Crapskins worse than any other team has been lit up this year. At least it will shut up the mouths of those insufferable Skins fans who couldn’t get enough of mocking Dallas all season long. Um, who dropped 60 points on the Cowboys in our own house? Ahhh that’s right, nobody.
    It’s ok Landry. Even if you run your mouth, get old and don’t want to play, Snyder will still pay you the big bucks just like McNabbers and Fat Albert. The circus in DC continues.

  43. charge1 says: Nov 16, 2010 10:37 AM

    So lets get this straight a center in the nfl gets spit in the face twice by a safety and does nothing about it?

    Eagles fans are upset by this but not by the fact their qb has stds and spreads them to unknowing partners ( Ron Mexico) Kills his pets by strangulation or shooting them in the head.

    Their coach is the greatest ever over four hundred pounds. With both sons in jail for drug and gun violations.

    Lets crown the Eagles champions now like every season and add this lombardi trophy to all of their other Lombardi trophys. Oh wait you dont have any!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Vick got hit once by Landry last night and he didnt want to get up after the hit. It will not last he has a glass jaw.

    ===============

    Sean Taylor was an absolute punk. He spit at a Bucs player on national TV. Redskin fan has selective memory. Taylor also was a punk at The U. Him being gunned down was a tragedy, however, that doesn’t dispel the fact he was a punk who spit on a guy in a game (at least once)….

  45. boysroll says: Nov 16, 2010 10:51 AM

    well said dallsbaby…bunch of bandwagon losers….they are jumping ship though as I live the DC area and they will be selling their tickets to the visitors or not showing up just like the last 10 yrs…Zorn must be laughing his a.. off right now and good for him as that org treats employees like crap…weasel boy and co deserve everything that is coming at them right now.

  47. domeunit says: Nov 16, 2010 11:54 AM

    since when did the players become such whistleblowing pansies? This happens every game, but for some odd reason this year all I’ve read from every team is how somebody plays “dirty” during a game….you mean there are over-aggressive, mean players in football who play beyond the whistle and use cheap tactics? say it ain’t so!

  48. chapnastier says: Nov 16, 2010 12:38 PM

    Landry sucks, anyone not wearing a Redskin t-shirt can see that. Just because some clown throws himself all over the field and runs his mouth after touching a man who is already down doesn’t mean he is good.

    Players arent doing anything that hasnt always been done. Only difference is people like Butkus Bednarik, and Night Trane Lane didnt have such a media presence.
