Video: DeSean Jackson takes preemptive measures to avoid Philly on Philly booing

The Eagles offense looked pretty solid on Sunday in their victory in Green Bay. DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper were once again recipients of long touchdown passes from Nick Foles and everybody should be happy after the game, right?

The questioning in the locker room directed at DJacc turned to the topic of this coming Sunday's game at the Linc against the Redskins. And just as a refresher, the Eagles haven't won a game on their home turf in front of their loyal fans in over a year.

So what do the Eagles have to do to at home to turn things around? DeSean:

"Gotta get it going, get it back in the swing of things at home. We deserve it, our fans deserve it. Hopefully we can collect something together, figure it out and win in front of our home fans. Gotta be supported by everybody. Can't be coming into the game first quarter and getting boos and that type of stuff. You've just got to work with us. I think as long as everybody is doing their job we'll be alright."

Nothing outlandish in that statement to me, BUT, I will say telling an Eagles fan not to boo is a surefire way to get him to do just that.

Now, given the analysts of former Eagle Brian Westbrook, Ray Didinger, and Ed Rendell -- which two of those three would you think provided the voice of reason? Pretty great clip below.

Brian Westbrook hits the nail directly on the head. If you want fans to cheer, give them something to cheer about. Then Ray Diddy seems downright offended.

All-Star sidelined for Sixers' game vs. Bucks

CAMDEN, N.J. -- The first matchup between the oversized point guards will have to wait.

Ben Simmons will not face off against Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is sidelined because of soreness in his right knee, in the Sixers' Saturday evening game against the Bucks. Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.3 blocks per game this season. 

That’s not the only absence.

Jerryd Bayless, who had started in place of JJ Redick (leg), is out with a sore left wrist. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot gets the nod at shooting guard.

“It’s another opportunity to show up and make some shots and prove that I can do that,” Luwawu-Cabarrot said at shootaround, also noting he has to play tough defense on Eric Bledsoe (17.7 points per game).

Reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon will also miss the game because of a personal matter, per the Journal Sentinel. Brogdon beat out Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award last season. 

Markelle Fultz (right shoulder) remains out. He worked on free throws, driving drills, and knocked down a jumper in the portion of shootaround available to the media.
