DeSean Jackson was chewed out in front of his teammates by coach Andy Reid following Philadelphia’s loss on Sunday, according to Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News Journal.
Jackson reportedly sat at his locker with his head in his hands for at least 15 minutes after the incident, and was consoled by many of his teammates. Reid’s frustration reportedly started with a “loose pre-game demeanor” in which he didn’t take pre-game drills seriously.
The deep threat also had a frustrating day on the field, catching only two passes for 26 yards. Jackson also appeared to have alligator arms on a late pass near the end zone. The Bears are experts at taking away the deep ball, and did a good job roughing Jackson up near the line of scrimmage.
Michael Vick was seen trying to help Jackson in the locker room, once saying, “C’mon, D-Jax, you’re my boy. I would never tell you nothin’ wrong.”
Vick later said in his press conference that he’ll “get the young guy together.”
Jackson’s production has been more up and down this year. Surely he wants more from this season before making a big contract push in the offseason.
