DeSean Jackson touches down in Philly: 'Unreal, it's a blessing'

DeSean Jackson touches down in Philly: 'Unreal, it's a blessing'

Did you feel a jolt of electricity pulse through the Delaware Valley about an hour ago? That's because DeSean Jackson, one of the most exciting offensive weapons to ever put on an Eagles uniform, is officially back in town.

Jackson has returned for another stint in Eagles' green after he was traded by the Tampa Bay Bucs back to the Birds on Monday.

Now that Jackson has landed back on Philadelphia soil and had a day to process the reunion, he's as pumped as ever.

NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark caught up with DeSean shortly after he touched down at Philadelphia International Airport on Tuesday evening.

"It feels great. Unreal," Jackson said of being back with the Eagles. "It's a blessing."

Jackson said "we'll see" about getting No. 10 back, the number currently owned by receiver Mack Hollins.

Jackson clearly isn't the only person excited about his return to the City of Brotherly Love. Carson Wentz is going to benefit from having the speedy wide receiver around more than anybody. And then there are all of the Philly fans who can dust off their old No. 10 Jackson jerseys (if Mack Hollins gives up the number).

It's been an exciting few days for Birds fans thanks to a busy Howie Roseman.

For even more analysis of DeSean's retun to Philly, give Reuben Frank and Dave Zangaro's Eagle Eye podcast a listen, where they dig into DJacc's historically great productivity and much more.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
