The NFL has joined the Eagles in issuing a statement in response to Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson posting anti-Semitic content on social media recently.

The Eagles called the posts “offensive, harmful and absolutely appalling” in their statement and the league’s initial response is along the same lines.

“DeSean’s comments were highly inappropriate, offensive and divisive and stand in stark contrast to the NFL’s values of respect, equality and inclusion. We have been in contact with the team which is addressing the matter with DeSean,” the statement said.

The Eagles also called for Jackson to apologize, use “his platform to take action to promote unity, equality, and respect,” and promised to take “appropriate action.” Jackson offered an apology on Instagram Tuesday, but didn’t note any actions he plans on taking beyond that point.

  1. Well I guess now maybe you can take Drew Brees down off the cross that he got crucified on

  2. What exactly is not offensive and harmful nowadays? That’s the better question. No one is changing how they think or what they believe, so there’s no sense to demand censorships or forced apologies.

  3. Drew Brees: I’ll stand for the flag, can’t see why others won’t

    Mob/Media: GET HIM OUT OF THE LEAGUE!!!

    Desean Jackson: posts actual anti-Semitic/racist content

    Mob/Media:…

  4. So earlier in the week- Receiver and return man Christion Jones was released for tweeting, “Man ain’t supposed to be with a man. A women is not suppose to be with another women.” I guess in this day and age if you have a Biblical worldview and quote the Bible you will be labeled with hate speech and unemployed……I hope you get my point.

  5. So HOW did you mean it to be taken dj? That was never explained by you. So that means it meant what it meant. And who exactly is “you guys”? Are you calling a whole race, “you guys”? The hole gets deeper. You can’t have it both ways DJ.

  6. Nothing will happen. Even if the eagles release him some team will snatch him up

  7. I came across Desean Jackson at a Chipotle in South Florida a few years back. I realized who he was as his group stood in front of us in line. I was the only one that recognized him so I told my friend next to me. One of those low voiced “check it out its Desean Jackson” in mild amusement. As I was doing that, Desean noticed me and he immediately proceeded to tell his posse of 4 to surround him in an obvious effort to form a barrier in case we had chosen to approach him. Funny thing is we weren’t planning to. We were more interested in the guac than his pretentious ass. So if you see Desean in the street one day make sure you don’t waste your time acknowledging his presence. Too bad for him that his posse at Chipotle won’t be able to protect him now from the avalanche he has now set upon himself 🙂 C’est la vie

  8. Nothing would happen to him in his earlier years because of how good he was but now he is washed up. What was he thinking?

  9. DeSean Jackson is a the same dummy who dropped a ball right before the end zone he’s the same loser that fights with coaches and misses meetings he’s the same loser every team gets rid of he’s poison

    “Christians” couldn’t find Jesus on a Christmas card anymore. The Bible is a distant landmark that shows the long, twisted, hypocritical path that Christians have taken.
    Jesus wouldn’t tolerate us having kids in cages.
    Jesus wouldn’t have followers congregating in churches in a pandemic. Try Matthew 6:5-6 for that one.
    Another 3 or 4 generations and, blessedly, no one will remember Christianity for anything more than the weaponized, judgemental, greedy, divisive mythology that people turned it into. We will all be far better off without it.
