Josh Scobee calls DeSean Jackson “punk,” starts Twitter feud

Getty Images

Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee and Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson have engaged in a war of words on Twitter.

It apparently started because Scobee was watching Sunday night’s Eagles-Giants game and was turned off by Jackson’s taunting penalty. That led Scobee to go on Twitter and write, “Desean Jackson is a punk. #growuputinybastard.”

Scobee heard from some fans who thought it wasn’t particularly respectful to call Jackson a “tiny bastard,” and so he followed up by writing, “Relax people. He’s just a punk, which to me means he doesn’t respect anyone or anything around him. Therefore, I don’t respect him.”

A day later, Scobee apparently felt remorseful, so he offered a third tweet: “Shouldn’t have called Desean Jackson that, I used the wrong words to try and make my point.”

But that quasi-apology didn’t appear to mollify Jackson, who went on Twitter today to rip Scobee for ripping him.

“This man @joshscobee is Waaaaaaay outta LIne!! Stick to ya Own business.. Mind ya own!! I don’t respect what u sayin.. Lil Boi status,” Jackson wrote. “Plus I don’t even know who this guy is!!”

“I don’t even know who this guy is” always makes for a good comeback. One wonders, however: If Jackson doesn’t know who Scobee is, why does he care enough to make an issue of Scobee’s tweet?

    He is a place kicker right? Stay in your PLACE

  2. bigjdve says: Nov 22, 2011 12:57 PM

    One would think that with as many issues that Jackson has right now that he would keep his head low for awhile.

    I guess that is what you get for thinking that maroon would have common sense.

    kickers…do not start twitter wars… because…you are a kicker

    Desean Jackson = Poor Man’s Steve Smith

  5. ozierdisaster3335 says: Nov 22, 2011 12:59 PM

    Wow a kicker and a receiver tweeting battle made the headlines?

  6. gcsuk says: Nov 22, 2011 12:59 PM

    So? Scobee was right. Stick to your guns, buddy. I have new found respect for a kicker.

  7. jlana24 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:00 PM

    Well I’m glad someone on my Jaguars is still fighting…

  8. denverhighrize says: Nov 22, 2011 1:00 PM

    To clarify Josh Scobee is a kicker, correct? Well when Scobee gets beat up by some bullies, DeSean will definitely be there to get him a signed jersey.

  9. kdish87 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:00 PM

    DeSean even used the wrong twitter handle when calling out Scobee.

  10. angrycorgi says: Nov 22, 2011 1:01 PM

    LOL @ hashtag

  11. speckers says: Nov 22, 2011 1:01 PM

    Josh… need to apologize for how you feel. You are 100% correct!

  12. ownbay says: Nov 22, 2011 1:01 PM

    Kickers be drinking Yo.

  13. baconholybacon says: Nov 22, 2011 1:01 PM

    What is it about Twitter that turns supposed adults into name-calling children?

  14. crashdog says: Nov 22, 2011 1:02 PM

    Mr. Jackson, you are turning out to be a punk. Its the reason the Eagles “haven’t gotten around” to reaching a long term deal with you. You just seem to be the most likely person in the NFL to end up with a bullet in your leg

  15. faulkana says: Nov 22, 2011 1:02 PM

    Jackson is a punk.
    I have more money than you, PUNK!
    Stupid, broke, classless, punk.

    Of course, I don’t know who Josh Scobee is either, but that is beside the point.

  16. medialovesthecowboys says: Nov 22, 2011 1:02 PM

    Nothing says “tough guy”, like a Twitter war.

    A kicker is picking a fight with a 160 lb receiver! Absolutely classic!!

  23. nfl fan says: Nov 22, 2011 1:05 PM

    PUNK or NO PUNK?

  24. tilllman40 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:06 PM

    Desean gonna “pop a cap”

  25. ruvelligwebuike says: Nov 22, 2011 1:07 PM

    “Mind ya own!! I don’t respect what u sayin…Lil Boid status. Plus I don’t even know who this guy is…duz he has sum money? Maybe he can borow me sum!”

  26. philly86 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:07 PM

    I can’t believe a kicker has the audacity to call out a 2x probowl wide receiver.

  27. ticalcaldwell says: Nov 22, 2011 1:07 PM

    heh….A kicker……Jackson is a punk…..but a kicker should never talk smack in the NFL……period

  28. irishjugalo says: Nov 22, 2011 1:07 PM

    I’ve always wondered what kickers on crappy teams do in their free time. Makes sense that it’s watch TV and play on their phones.

  29. nesportsfan0428 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:08 PM

    Josh Scobee will not tweet that his dad can beat up Desean Jackson’s dad.

  30. coolgato13 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:08 PM

    DuhSean Jackson and DuhAngelo Hall…. the Siamese twins of stupidity and selfishness.

  31. cardiovascularendurance says: Nov 22, 2011 1:08 PM

    And to make it even better, Scobee’s twitter pic is of him getting a piggy-back ride. You can’t make this stuff up!

  32. theduuuuuuuuuude says: Nov 22, 2011 1:09 PM

    Man I’m getting tired of this guy.

  33. wlubake says: Nov 22, 2011 1:10 PM

    Scobee should introduce himself to DeSean as a kicker who is making 4 times DeSean’s salary in 2011. That should shut him up.

  34. commieniko says: Nov 22, 2011 1:10 PM

    Team Scobee

  35. captainwisdom8888 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:10 PM

    Eagles fan here, and I’d like to hear anyone try and claim this guy isn’t a punk…just try. Desean is the epitome of a lil punk.

  36. rhardy1206rhardy1206 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:10 PM

    Goal number 1—-have a winning season= FAIL

    Goal number 2—Make pointless use of twitter—EPIC PASS

  37. abninf says: Nov 22, 2011 1:11 PM

    Twitter. With some ebonics thrown in. At least argue like men, not chicks.

  38. kh221 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:12 PM

    I hope we can expect continued updates of this truly riveting story about two twit-wits…

  39. coreydemoss says: Nov 22, 2011 1:12 PM

    I love how people’s reaction is “he’s a kicker, he shouldn’t talk.” What does his position have to do with anything? If he has an observation, he’s allowed to make it. And in this case, Scobee is right. Desean Jackson has a history of me-first attitude, from his ridiculous celebrations before he gets into the end zone, to hijacking his teammates’ interviews, to taunting, to contract disputes. I’m with Scobee on this one, and him not being allowed to speak his mind because he’s a kicker makes no sense to me.

  40. schmokes says: Nov 22, 2011 1:13 PM

    Putting “lil boi” in his tweet will definitely help show that he isn’t a punk.

  41. heyyoubehindthebikeshed says: Nov 22, 2011 1:13 PM

    who said Desean is a punk? Totally agree with him!

  42. AlanSaysYo says: Nov 22, 2011 1:13 PM

    DeSean needs to watch himself. Kickers in Jacksonville have axes.

  43. jdandcoke says: Nov 22, 2011 1:14 PM

    scobee is correct in everything he said….and in additionto being a claseless punk, desean is also a ghetto clown. i love football with a passion….but the hiphop aspect of todays current game is really freaking annoying.

    remeber how barry sanders used to play the game? the guy was better than anyone in the universe at what he did….and yet he’d always calmly hand the ball to the ref after scoring….no angry tearing off of the helmet, no crazy gesturing to the crowd, no idiotic dance moves, nothing but pure class. i miss that type of game.

  44. bengalsown says: Nov 22, 2011 1:16 PM

    Wow, is that what twitter is like?

  45. hayb21 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:17 PM

    the only kicker/punter that ever deserves to say anything is chris kluwe because that dude is hilarious..bring out the white board for this fued

  46. dukemarc says: Nov 22, 2011 1:19 PM

    Nice job proving Scobee’s point, Desean….

  47. phillybirds says: Nov 22, 2011 1:21 PM

    jdand the 90s were the most ghetto

  48. daysend564 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:21 PM

    Scobee would beat the snot out of Jackson.

  49. joetoronto says: Nov 22, 2011 1:26 PM

    Right on, Scobee!

  50. nannymcsack says: Nov 22, 2011 1:27 PM

    scobee might actually be making more money than that punk right now

  51. rdawg911 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:28 PM

    Scobee was for sure hammered when he posted. DON’T DRINK & POST

  52. cav2ya says: Nov 22, 2011 1:30 PM

    Scobee just better pray he never has to punt to in a game against the Eagles. DJax will rip him a new one… Ask Matt Dodge how it feels..

    continue to Walk the Walk Djax… all scobbee is doing is talking the talk.. who’s the real punk?

  53. raiderlyfe510 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:30 PM

    Who’s Josh Scobee?

  54. dryzzt23 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:30 PM

    Desean Jackson = Poor Man’s Steve Smith

    This is an insult to Steve Smith

    Jackson is a punk and its just a matter of time until he gets whacked

  55. cardmagnet says: Nov 22, 2011 1:32 PM

    Josh is 100% correct

  59. pixelito says: Nov 22, 2011 1:39 PM

    Hmmm, I can think of some more “colorful” terms Scobee should’ve regretted using towards DeSean.

  60. jessejames13 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:45 PM

    War Scobee!

  61. jakek2 says: Nov 22, 2011 1:49 PM

    Scobee’s retort to “I don’t know who he even is” should have been, “I’m a dude that gets paid more than you for playing”.

  62. rcali says: Nov 22, 2011 2:00 PM

    My teenage daughter tweets.

  63. lawrinson20 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:02 PM

    Scobee’s right. But, kickers should be seen and not heard.

    I have Desean on my fantasy team, and regret it every day. Makes me feel ‘dirty’ — that i want him to succeed [THIS year.]

  64. cmstrick says: Nov 22, 2011 2:04 PM

    Next we’ll have a NFL version of “Real World”…

  65. eaglesw00t says: Nov 22, 2011 2:04 PM

    Desean is a punk. And I have an authentic jersey in my closet. If you cant admit it, youre a homer.

    Unfortunately, he is a good receiver. Not a $10 mill a year receiver like he apparently thinks he is, but he is one of the fastest players I have ever seen in my life. I have to admit, it is hilarious watching DBs get absolutely smoked by a guy that weighs 169lbs.

    But seriously…Josh Scobee? Im a football guy, so I know who he is. But didnt your mom or wife teach you anything? If you dont have anything nice to say, keep your trap shut. And that goes for you too Desean…

  66. Raider-in-PA says: Nov 22, 2011 2:07 PM

    Sure, Scobee is just a lowly kicker, but even us civilians can see that Desean has been acting like a Jackass…

  67. bigvinnyinjax says: Nov 22, 2011 2:07 PM

    Did you notice hoq incoherent Jackson’s tweet was? Maybe he’s a punk AND a moron.

    And of course he knows who Scobee is or he would never have responded. If I tweeted that he’s a punk I guarantee he wouldn’t reply back. Hold on, I’m going to go test this….

  68. bradshawlives says: Nov 22, 2011 2:09 PM

    This isn’t news. We already knew Jackson was a punk.

  69. realfootballfan says: Nov 22, 2011 2:10 PM

    Wow, a scrub kicker calls another man that he doesn’t know a bastard and a punk, yet some people here still feel that Jackson is in the wrong.

  70. lilrob10201 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:10 PM

    Just know all fans that are talking about Desean Jackson just know that he just might be on your favourite team next season.

  71. lilrob10201 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:11 PM

    And getting paid millions.I see the Redskins paying millions for Desean Jackson.

  72. gmen5280 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:14 PM

    Scobee is just stating what every sane person was thinking at that moment.

    Broke Smurf is a 1st class A hole. His interview with Michael Irving further demonstrates this point. It used to be an honor to play this sport! Now it is show me the money, so I can be an absolute joke of a person.

    If you can’t live on 600k a year, you are as sharp as a marble.

  73. das14 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:15 PM

    The NFL should fine twitter 200k. Get on it Goodell! FINE!!! FINE EM ALL!

  74. n0hopeleft says: Nov 22, 2011 2:20 PM

    So in the last 6 months, 2 of Philadelphia’s biggest stars have shown their true colors by getting into Twitter fights?

    Wow – the tough streets of Philadelphia.

    So fitting that they play for the City of Bromance.

  75. bigvinnyinjax says: Nov 22, 2011 2:24 PM

    The beauty of this is that DeSean DeReplied to the wrong DeJosh.

    It’s @JoshScobee10 not @JoshScobee.

    He’s an punk. Excuse me, I mean “he a punk.” Go Josh Go.

  76. jerseyshoregiant says: Nov 22, 2011 2:25 PM

    I bet Scobee makes more money than DeSean right now.

  77. dirtyjersey9er says: Nov 22, 2011 2:30 PM

    Jackson is just mad Scobee is scoring more points for the Jags than he is for the Iggles.

  78. rugdaniels says: Nov 22, 2011 2:32 PM

    Jackson’s a great example of why I won’t follow most athletes on Twitter. I’d need a translator to understand the tweets. Being limited to 140 characters doesn’t mean that you can’t use English.

    On the other hand Chris Kluwe from the Vikings is hysterical on Twitter.

  79. trbowman says: Nov 22, 2011 2:37 PM

    Scobee, don’t apologize!

    Damn team PR people meddling.

    This twitter war is more interesting than anything the Jags have done this season.

  80. test2402 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:42 PM

    Mr. Timothy Tebow.

  81. cletusvandam says: Nov 22, 2011 2:43 PM

    This example of twitter stupidity made the headlines, but J Gaffney telling a Cowboy’s fan to go kill himself didn’t?

  82. sterilizecromartie says: Nov 22, 2011 2:44 PM

    OH NO!! Not a Twitter fued!! Hide the women and children!

  83. illiniftw says: Nov 22, 2011 2:52 PM

    What is with all the kicker hate? If I could get a job where all I had to do was kick a ball for $500k+ I sure as hell would take it!

    As a Bears fan I love having Gould as our kicker! An accurate kicker puts more points on the board than about anyone else on the team.

  84. blacknyellow86 says: Nov 22, 2011 2:53 PM

    funny how this dude Scobee is talking smack to jackson, lol Hilarious. dude is running his mouth for the simple fact that hes a kicker and not a CB that has to cover Jackson comical BS…

  85. chocolatebaconbutter says: Nov 22, 2011 3:05 PM

    Tim Tebow would never do something this loathesome.

  86. claydefayette says: Nov 22, 2011 3:12 PM

    DeSean “I’m Sorry Ms.” Jackson

  87. r0bry4n1sf4t says: Nov 22, 2011 3:18 PM

    I don’t understand why a kicker can’t talk smack. They play a pretty vital role on a team versus a WR like Jackson who disappears for the majority of EVERY game anyways.

  88. patsfiend says: Nov 22, 2011 3:21 PM

    I wish someone came off the Giants sideline and clotheslined Jackson when we was taunting them. I hope the Pats (and their highly questionable secondary) get a shot to lay him out this coming weekend.

  89. mojosmagic says: Nov 22, 2011 3:21 PM

    Who the hell is Josh Scobee? Must be a punk trying to make a name for himself by way of DJac. Lol

  90. riverhorsey says: Nov 22, 2011 3:25 PM

  91. Nevis says: Nov 22, 2011 3:30 PM

    Good for Scobee, D-Jax is a cancer and will be looking for a new team come January.

  92. distracted9 says: Nov 22, 2011 3:32 PM

    I for one am a huge Eagles fan.. and.. I agree with Scobee. Jackson is a punk. I support him on the field as I do all Eagles but I would love to see him go.. he’s not worth the headache.. If he stays he can return punts and use him in special packages.. he isn’t the every down threat he would like you to believe.. at least not in our system.

  93. freddyfreeloader says: Nov 22, 2011 3:40 PM

    More or less agree with Scobee-doo, but that’s absolutely a no-no, calling a player out personally on Twitter. Scobee subjected himself to the “takes-one-to-know-one” rationale.

  94. bigdan7885 says: Nov 22, 2011 3:40 PM

    Anytime something like this happens, I just assume it’s because one guy boned the other guy’s girlfriend.

  95. laeaglefan says: Nov 22, 2011 4:06 PM

    I wonder if DeSean Jackson’s parents are proud of the young man that they raised.

  96. shackdelrio says: Nov 22, 2011 4:21 PM

    I bet Jackson will be wishing he knows who Scobee is in 10 years when he files for bankruptcy and loses his house.

  97. greymares says: Nov 22, 2011 4:34 PM

    Before you call him “just a kicker”, Scobee beat the Ravens with 5 field goals..

  100. spharrgcs says: Nov 22, 2011 4:50 PM

    DeSean is tiny and he is a punk. A punk by NFL standards is someone who makes a nice play then eliminates it by carelessly and stupidly performing a taunt. No one can dispute that he is extremely diminutive. Just deal DeSean. You are who you are.

  101. winnerwinnerchickendinner14 says: Nov 22, 2011 4:50 PM

    DeSean, you may not know who he is, but that kicker is making more money than you…

    DeSean’s 2011 salary = $769K
    Scobee’s 2011 salary = $2 million

  102. ilovefoolsball says: Nov 22, 2011 4:59 PM

    This kicker needs to join the Dallas kicker for dinner.

  103. jacksonvillejags4life says: Nov 22, 2011 5:02 PM

    Before everyone jumps on Scobee I would like to point out that A. He’s the nicest man in the world (I know cuz I’ve met him multiple times) and B. Desean Jackson was outta line idk in what world it is okay to do what he does. Something is not right in his head…he wants to get paid but he acts like a least behave during ur contract year you idiot! Go Scobee! and btw if you actually tweet scobee their is a good chance he’ll respond how many nfl players do that…..#TeamScobeeforLife

  104. kibawib says: Nov 22, 2011 5:05 PM

    Yep, this proves the league needs more Desean Jacksons and fewer Tim Tebows.

  105. emoney12 says: Nov 22, 2011 5:06 PM

    The funny thing is, this kicker Scobee makes a bit more that DeSean Jackson. The way Jackson is going, this will continue next year as well. Jackson is a punk.

  106. axlviking says: Nov 22, 2011 5:21 PM

    Scobee was right…but nothing is gained by tweeting the obvious…especially when it’s that inflammatory.

  107. n0hopeleft says: Nov 22, 2011 5:26 PM

    DeSean Jackson:
    156 total points scored for the Eagles lifetime.

    Josh Scobee:
    721 total points scored for the Jags lifetime.

    Scobee can talk all the trash he wants.. After all, he dominates DeSean in total points scored, bank account totals, and grammar!

    All the Eagles “tough guy” fans are now acting like they have been supporting their team all along. Where were you to be found when they were losing, like when they lost to the Giants in Week 3? None of you “fans” had the stones to show your faces. But now you’re all a bunch of badasses.

    Eagles, last time I checked, are still in 3rd Place, looking up at the Giants and the Cowboys.

  109. sshameless says: Nov 22, 2011 5:45 PM

    Doesn’t matter who says it, it’s true. Jackson is a punk.

  110. granadafan says: Nov 22, 2011 6:20 PM

    As the esteemed Peyton Manning once said, “our idiot kicker who got liquored up and ran his mouth off.”

  111. finsuppatsdown says: Nov 22, 2011 7:36 PM

    What is with all the kicker hate. I understand that they are usually not the toughest guys on the team but they have one of the hardest jobs. I want to see any of you make a 40 yard field goal, with the game on the line, playoffs on the line, with your entire team counting on you, with your entire fan base counting on you, with the other team coming at you, and with the other teams fans making noise. Does that sound easy? These guys have a skill that 99% of the population does not have. Cut them some slack.

  112. jgrange says: Nov 22, 2011 8:13 PM

    Scobee: 6’1 210lbs. DeCrybaby: 5’10 175lbs (probably smaller than that as skill players measurements are always lies) Scobee’s contract: $2mill DeCrybaby’s contract: $600k. Scobee is bigger and can afford a bigger entourage to take DeCrybaby out. He better watch out.

  113. cupofjoe1962 says: Nov 22, 2011 9:24 PM

    DeSean is going to have a lot less Andrew Jackson’s in his pocket next year after his selfish/cowardly 2011 performance.

    Even Charlie Sheen would say…..
    The dudes not winning !

  114. blackandtealforeal says: Nov 22, 2011 10:34 PM

    It would be interesting to see who has scored more points in the last three years. That being said, Scobee needs to lay off the liquor late at night.

  115. tarheelpirate says: Nov 22, 2011 11:19 PM

    Why would someone compare their career points and salaries? Apples and oranges on both accounts.

    D. Jackson might be smaller than Scobee, but if they entered the octagon, my money is on the tiny punk. And it wouldn’t reach round 2.

    I wanna see Scobee whip his ***. I cant stand that broke, Napoleon complex having, next WR to shot himself, mouth righting checks his *** or bank account cant cash, no respect having punk.

    And youre right. WR salaries are supposed to eclipse Kickers. Unless you suck.

    For all of you mentioning Scobees salary in comparison, should we revisit this topic in 6 months?

    You know…when Jackson makes more next year than Scobee will make in his entire career?

    The kid is a punk. But if youre that stupid that you want to bring up salary comparison, you should be sterilized, so as not to contaminate the gene pool. Salary in the NFL means nothing.

    Overpaid preschooler war. Twitter fits their abilities at spelling just fine.
