All about the NFC EAST

What crossed the news-wires in regards today about the NFC EAST.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

DeSean Jackson, known for breakaway speed, amazing talent, and wearing women’s panties in the Eagle Locker room (sources and references need, but that’s what I heard), said this about his playing status on Sunday:

“I don’t think I can go,” Jackson said Tuesday, per Sal Paolantonio of ESPN when asked about his concussion.  “I blacked out.”

This answer actually came when asked about what he thought about the President sending 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.  Jackson’s team, the Eagles, managed to play well and pull out a win versus the Washington Redskins last week.  They are keeping pace with the division leading Dallas Cowboys, with whom that have a week 17 date.  Jackson further added he wouldn’t be wearing panties for that affair (more sources needed).

DALLAS COWBOYS

Dallas star QB Tony Romo went on…a “vay-kay-shaun”.  We all know how those go with him.

ProFootballTalk.com, reported Owner/CEO/GM Jerry Jones had this to say about the situation:

“I don’t want to be naive, and I recognize that Las Vegas has a certain connotation,” Jones said on his radio show Tuesday, per Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram. “I too don’t want to be jumping on that either. They need all the pep-up they can get out there in Las Vegas, and that’s where many of us go and it’s a respite. But I think we all understand how we would point to that and think, ‘Well, OK, Las Vegas.’ ”

I personally don’t think it’s a big deal, which leads me to wonder why even mention it?  The Cowboys have a rematch with and @ the New York Giants, and that should be enough to get them pumped up and excited.  Unless, Tony is getting extra action in Sin City, he should expect to see plenty in the form of a Giant’s pass rush.  [Blank] make the legs weak.

NEW YORK GIANTS

Eli Manning had this to say about his foot (per ProFootballTalk.com):

“It’s one of those things that time and rest is probably the biggest thing,” Manning added.  “Having the weekend and the bye week and off week helped some.  Time to rest it is helpful.  It is not something I think will linger or bother me.”

Actually for Eli, it wasn’t a bye week…they played Thrusday (loss @ DEN) and had the weekend off.  I hope his head is OK, I like the guy.  And NYG Fans are not ready to get behind former first round sensation-David Carr.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

The hard fought loss at the hands of Panty Jackson and the Eagles was costly to the Redskins and the health of their beloved and star QB-Jason Campbell. On the last play of the game for the Skins on offense,  Campbell was slammed to the ground by some guy on the Eagles team.  Head Coach Jim Zorn, sent a DVD to the League office, demanding justice.  They got this in response (via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post and ProFootballTalk.com):

No, nope, legal play,” Zorn said.  “Because [Parker] got [Campbell] around the shoulders and not the helmet.”

One specific portion of the applicable rule arguably supports the league’s position.  Here’s the relevant language, from Rule 12, Section 2, Article 13(2) of the 2009 Official Playing Rules:  “When tackling a passer who is in a virtually defenseless posture (e.g., during or just after throwing a pass), a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw him down and land on top of him with all or most of the defender’s weight.  Instead, the defensive player must strive to wrap up or cradle the passer with the defensive player’s arms.”  (Emphasis supplied.)

In our view, Parker “violently” threw Campbell down.  But the rule doesn’t say “violently throw him down OR land on top of him with all or most of the defender’s weight.”  It says “and.”  Under the letter of the law, then, a defender apparently is permitted to violenty throw the quarterback down, as long as the defender doesn’t land on the quarterback with all or most of the defender’s weight.

Oh well.  Now the main concern for the Redskins is how they will get the UPS (used to ship the DVD) expensed.  Since no fine money will be assessed, who will pocket the charge?  Homerskinsfan.com will be on top of it.
