    (SportsNetwork. Isaac Bonga Jersey .com) - Maybe you cant do epic you know what with basic people but you can sure spoil things with some average folks. The enigmatic DeSean Jackson proved that on Saturday when he played a rather large role in helping to torpedo his former teams season, catching four balls for 126 yards, including a pair of trademarked over-the-top strikes on embattled Philadelphia cornerback Bradley Fletcher, during Washingtons 27-24 upset win over the sinking Eagles. They going home. Tell them goodnight. Bye bye, a gleeful Jackson boasted after the game. Technically thats not true but it might as well be as Philadelphia needs to win its Week 17 game in North Jersey against the New York Giants and hope Dallas loses its final two games, starting with Sundays matchup against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. Jackson, a three-time Pro Bowl selection in Philadelphia, was unceremoniously dumped in the offseason in a curious move, considering he was coming off his best campaign of 82 receptions for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns in his first year under the offensive genius of Chip Kelly. On paper, Jackson seemed like a perfect fit for Kellys innovative offensive mind, a versatile player who lined up all over the field and served as the ultimate home-run hitter. Jackson, though, is a complainer and his personality, to be kind, can be grating at times. He is always upset with something whether its money, touches or coaching and Jackson is no shrinking violet when it comes to discussing it, often taking to social media to voice his displeasure like when he buried his current quarterback in an epic fashion on Instagram. In Philadelphia. Jackson butted heads with Kelly on more than one occasion, wasnt exactly Jerry Rice when it came to his work ethic, and did keep some spotty off-the-field company, which all contributed to the toxic cocktail that sent the California product from the City of Brotherly Love to the Beltway. It got so ugly that some in Jacksons camp (and me for that matter) believe the Eagles were behind the widely-circulated rumors that played up the Jacksons ties to gang-related activity. So its certainly no surprise the home-run threat took a special interest in sinking Kellys season, giving an impassioned speech to the Skins before the game and then hauling in two passes of over 50 yards, the kind of pop-the-top, field stretcher the Eagles are desperately missing now that Jackson moved south on I-95. You try to get some help over the top in certain coverages and get matched up with them, Kelly said. We felt like our corners could stay with them and obviously they didnt. By them Kelly meant Jackson. The physical Pierre Garcon did break a Cary Williams tackle that helped set up Kai Forbaths 26-yard game-winning field goal, but no one was considering rolling a safety over the top on his side. Thats how they play, Jackson replied when asking about Philadelphias defensive plan to leave Fletcher on an island. Theyre very naive and they play how they play. They could care less who is out there or who is at wide receiver, theyre going to play their defense the way they play it. Its fair to say Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis game plan outside the numbers left a lot to be desired especially after he watched the Cowboys Dez Bryant do the same kinds of things to Fletcher six days earlier. And when Davis did finally roll a safety toward Jackson late, the result was Robert Griffin III forcing the football and a Nate Allen interception, a turnover that helped the Eagles deadlock the game in the fourth quarter. Thats the Philadelphia Eagle defense, Jackson said. Ive been there a lot of years and witnessed a lot of players -- wide receivers, tight ends -- get off on some huge games on them, and Im just happy to be on this side and be able to send them home with a loss. The Redskins are only 4-11 season and Jackson remains an immature, knucklehead at times, but he has recorded seven receptions of 50-plus yards this season and has 29 such catches since entering the league in 2008, the most in the NFL over that span. Thats production you cant replace and talent wins out more than not in the NFL, something Kelly learned the hard way on Saturday. Thats a question you have to ask them, Jackson said when asked if the Eagles regret their decision. As far as my ex-teammates, I think a lot of the guys miss me. Im happy to be here in Washington. Things didnt go the way we wanted it go this year, but at the end of the day, weve got a job to do, which is to finish strong. Gilbert Arenas Jersey .

Stewart, a three-time Sprint Cup Series champion, is expected to drive his No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet in Friday and Saturdays practice sessions, Saturday nights preseason race -- The Sprint Unlimited -- and Sundays qualifying for the Daytona 500. It will be Stewarts first time back in a race car since he suffered a broken right leg in an accident during a sprint car race last August in Oskaloosa, Iowa. He missed the final 15 races of the 2013 season. "Im excited about it," Stewart said during Thursdays Daytona 500 Media Day at Daytona International Speedway. "Its been a long time since August 5th. Normally, were talking about the offseason, and it just seems like it flies by. But this has been the slowest offseason that Ive ever had. Im ready to get going again." Stewart underwent three surgeries to repair his leg, including one where a metal rod was inserted inside his fractured tibia. Hes had months of pphysical therapy. Washington Wizards Gear. . "All of my therapy has been going really well, especially I would say in the last two weeks," he said. "I feel like weve made really huge gains. I dont know how we could be more prepared, honestly, than where we are right now. In a perfect scenario, everything would be healed 100 percent, and we wouldnt even be talking about it. My bone is about 65 percent healed right now." Last month, Mark Martin drove Stewarts No. 14 car during preseason testing at Daytona. Martin also substituted for Stewart in the car in 12 of the last 13 races this past season. Stewart is one of 18 drivers competing in The Sprint Unlimited at Daytona, which is a 75-lap, 187.5-mile race. He has won it three times. "I feel confident enough that were not going to have to worry about anything," Stewart said. "Weve planned for everything that we think might or could go wrong. And when I say, go wrong, its not going to be anything thats going to take me out of the race car. Its a matter of trying to make everything absolutely as comfortable as possible." ' ' '
