DeSean Jackson, Trevor Laws pick up fines

DeSean Jackson lost a 50-yard completion when he flipped the ball at the Giants bench at the end of the play last Sunday night.

Now the act has cost him some cash as well. Jackson was slapped with a $10,000 fine for his unsportsmanlike conduct, which cost the Eagles all the yards he gained because Giants defensive tackle Linval Joseph was also penalized for illegal use of the hands.

The NFL will also be picking up some money from Jackson’s teammate Trevor Laws. The defensive lineman was fined $7,500 for hitting Giants quarterback Eli Manning at the tail end of an interception, touching off a brief melee which also resulted in offsetting penalties.

  1. Jackson’s either too stupid to realize what he was fined for or too much of a punk to care that he was fined. Either way he’s going to keep doing this type of thing.

  2. Desean Jackson should be fined for, yet again, another classless bit of low-life taunting. This guy taunts and hot-dogs with every single play he makes. He’s a classless piece of low-life trash.

  3. $10,000 for flipping the ball?

    And Charles Woodson gets $10,000 for throwing a punch? Ryan Clark gets $10,000 for a helmet to helmet hit? Matt Stafford gets $7,500 for grabbing a players facemask and throwing him to the ground?

    Dont get me wrong…I think what Desean did was stupid and a punk move…but seriously, isnt something wrong with this picture??

    so you take away a 50 yard gain and fine the guy? i hate what this league is becoming.

    —————————————–

    What were you expecting? $10 worth of tokens for Chuck-E-Cheese???

    This isn’t the 1st time it has happened.

  6. Wow. The penalty wiping out a 50 yard gain isn’t enough? The guys a punk but goodness. The NFL system of fining is out of control. If that was worth 10k, Suh might play this season for free.

    It really doesn’t require a very high set of standards to get above Desean’s level of behavior.

    Dude, tell us how you REALLY feel. I mean, get some perspective. $10,000 for flipping a ball? Are you effing kidding me? The Eagles already got victimized by a stupid rule. I guess that’s not enough? They wouldn’t have lost 50 yards if the Giants didn’t commit a penalty. How fair is that?

    Also, consider that this fine is a whopping 1.6% of his gross ANNUAL salary. That’s like you or me getting fined $1,000 for running a stop sign.

    Good!…Maybe now he’ll stop acting like a turd. Classless low-life behavior should never be tolerated nor condoned. It lowers the bar for our entire society. We should always be striving for advancement and higher standards. Guys like Desean and his trash behavior do nothing but drag us all down to a lower level.

  10. I dont see why Trevor Laws got fined for making a block on Eli Manning when he was able to make the Tackle after the interception.Before you know it we will be seeing bigger hits in lingerie football league the the NFL.

    No, it’s like you getting fined $1,000 for running a stop sign in front of a cop while flipping the bird, blasting F- the Police on the stereo and singing along in a very animated fashion so the cop knows that you’re singing along.

    And like it’s your fifth time doing it.

  12. “I dont see why Trevor Laws got fined for making a block on Eli Manning when he was able to make the Tackle after the interception.”

    It’s pretty simple. If you watch the replays, the hit on Manning came AFTER the guy who made the interception had already been tackled, and after Manning had pulled up.

    Laws was headhunting the QB, pure and simple. He got caught. He’s lucky the fine was that light.

    First of all, it’s nothing like that at all. He flipped a ball to an assistant coach, and it was his first time. That is nowhere near $10,000 worth of violation. Second of all, your analogy doesn’t make any sense. He didn’t taunt the people who imposed the fine or penalty. Third, flipping off a cop is legal, as is blasting F the police and singing along. The cops can’t cannot fine you.

    Look, I’m not a DeSean apologist, but calling the guy a “low life” because he’s a show off and immature? Saying his conduct hurts our society as a whole? Calling him trash? You’re nothing but a hater. He was penalized, as he should have been.

    I can only imagine what you’d like to see happen to Suh. Maybe a firing squad?

  15. I’m sensing a lot of eagles-fan bias over here.

    The fine to Trevor Laws was absolutely warranted. It was a late hit to Eli Manning after the LB with the ball was brought down. It was unnecessary and it was late (it happens all the time, re: Vick) and it was the correct call. Actually watch the footage before making such a statement. If it wasn’t for the fact that RG Chris Snee started shoving players in retaliation, it would’ve been an unnecessary roughness call against the Eagles, and an easy one at that

  16. BHINDENEMYLINES- Actually, this IS the 1st time this has happened. I dont ever remember him flipping the ball at another D-coordinater. And that taunting call when he fell back in the endzone vs Dallas shouldnt have even been called. A player has the right go to the ground after a jump, slide, dive or what ever he wants to do to get into the endzone. Desean was falling to the ground as he was crossing the goalline so there shouldnt have been a penalty. And was I the only one who noticed the head official use both arms to shove Trent Cole backwards during a scuffle? Why are refs allowed to do thaT? Cole would have been suspended if he were to lay a finger on him. And thats the same official that congratulated Eli and said “nice pass” right after Eli threw his TD to cruz. Not cool man. . . .not cool

  17. Trevor Laws played the whistle and was within his rights to hit Manning. Eli should have taken a path in the exact opposite direction of the ball carrier if he didn’t want to be part of the play. It was perfectly legal, but obviously cheap.

    incorrect. you cannot blindside hit a QB who was pulling up from pursuit after a runner was brought down to the ground. mind you, we’re not talking about the LB being gang tackled and trying to fight for extra yards. he was on the ground when manning got hit. it was obvious on the footage, it was obvious from the screams/howling when it was showed on replay at the stadium, and it was it being so obvious that led to him getting fined.

    I expect professionalism and decency. YES….when a player acts like this I am definitely “a hater”. Is it not too much to expect that the players act with decency?

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

    I’ve been to enough NFL games to know that the fans let emotion (and booze) cloud their judgment. We can’t tell from the TV highlights when the play was dead. I’m sure if the NFL wanted they could release video from the wide angle that showed the entire sequence, or just showed the game clock at both ends of the play for that matter. Unfortunately that’s been kept under wraps, most likely because the flag was questionable.

    I stand by my original statement.
