DeSean Jackson latest to rip Chip Kelly

Four years after his Eagles release, DeSean Jackson still bears the scar from his rift with Chip Kelly. The veteran wide receiver won’t even mention his former head coach.

Other than to point out he’s a major crackpot.

TMZ Sports ambushed Jackson at an airport this week, where they conducted a wide-ranging interview in less than 60 seconds. Among the topics broached was Kelly’s new job as head coach at UCLA, but the three-time Pro Bowl selection wasn’t hearing it.

“Oh, no, we don’t even talk about that dude,” Jackson says, cutting the interviewer off. “He’s a weirdo. He’s a big-time weirdo.”

It wasn’t the first time Jackson declined to discuss the controversial coach. Whatever issues that existed between the two, he’s generally kept Kelly’s name out of his mouth since his Eagles departure.

Jackson doesn’t really need to comment. Since his release in 2014 – a move that was reportedly made at Kelly’s insistence – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout has eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving twice, and signed two expensive contracts.

After pushing for Jackson’s release, Kelly amassed an 18-29 record, got fired from two jobs, and left the NFL with his tail between his legs, returning to college football.

Jackson clearly came out of this feud on top, and he’s not the only former Eagle pushed out by Kelly who feels vindicated.

Never one to shy away from criticizing Kelly, running back LeSean McCoy – traded to the Buffalo Bills in 2015 – likely summed up the feelings of Jackson and several others back in January.

“I got a lot of love for Philadelphia now that the little short coach is with the kids where he belongs,” McCoy said on NFL Network, via ProFootballTalk.

Carson Wentz married Madison Oberg over the weekend in Philly suburb

Carson Wentz is a married man.

The Eagles' quarterback and his bride, Madison Oberg, kept things on the DL and got married in Bucks County over the weekend.

Wentz shared photos of their engagement back in February and again posted a couple of select shots from their wedding to his Twitter on Monday.

"Such a blessing to finally get to marry my best friend! It was an incredible day and God has his fingerprints all over our story! I’m a lucky man with one amazing wife #WentzUponATime," Wentz tweeted.

The ceremony over the weekend reportedly took place at The Lake House Inn and was visible to a boater named Christy Stack, who snapped a couple of photos and shared them to Facebook.

"We could hear the whole ceremony! And then after 'you may kiss the bride' a guy on a kayak did the Eagles chant ," Stack wrote on Facebook.

Congrats to Wentz and his new wife. The guy just keeps collecting rings in 2018.

Here's a look at the setting as shared by the caterer:

Fans go crazy rewatching the Super Bowl on South Street

What happens when you’re in Philadelphia, have a street blocked off and a giant TV screen? You show the Super Bowl and people go absolutely crazy.

Earlier today, Brauhaus Schmiz on South Street held a summer block party for the World Cup Final and it was a pretty happening time.

Congratulations France!! Let’s drink and finish out this summer block party #worldcup #champs #blockparty #southstreet

However, after the game, the screen flipped to Super Bowl LII and people loved it almost as much as they did back in February. 

Here’s how the reaction looked when the Philly Special happened.

Never stop celebrating, Philly.
