Did DeSean Jackson tease his jersey number on Instagram?

Did DeSean Jackson tease his jersey number on Instagram?

It’s time to reach into the bottom of your dresser, throw your old No. 10 DeSean Jackson jersey in the dryer and put it on a hanger back in the closet. 

Or is it?

While the Eagles traded for Jackson yesterday -- trades cannot become official until the league year officially begins on Wednesday -- he might have given us a hint as to what jersey number he will wear in Philadelphia.

Take a look.

Jackson couldn’t wait to be back in Eagles green, playing Madden Tuesday night and catching virtual passes from his new QB, Carson Wentz, but if you freeze the video, you’ll see Jackson is wearing No. 84 in the game.

In an Instagram live when the trade rumors were swirling, Jackson said “We’re gonna rock that 10 mode. Get back to that 10 guy.” However, I think he was talking more about a mentality than physically wearing the No. 10 again.

Jackson wore 11 when he was with the Washington Redskins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and, we think that number is probably off-limits with the Eagles. Currently, Mack Hollins is wearing the No. 10 on the Birds, so it’ll be interesting to see if, and for how much, Hollins gives up that number.

My guess is that the number in Madden was auto-generated and when you see Carson Wentz reach back and launch a 50-yard pass to Jackson streaking towards the end zone, it’ll be the old No. 10 running under it and dancing his way to six.

If I’m Mack Hollins, I make Jackson sweat it out and open his checkbook to get the number back, though.

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.
