DeSean Jackson's unfortunate word choice: Eagles 'like pit bulls'
The Philadelphia Eagles came out in the first quarter Monday night and rained furious hell upon the hapless Redskins.
Led by a historically great performance by Michael Vick(notes), the offense ran up 28 points and cruised for 328 yards of offense in the first quarter. The defense allowed the Redskins nothing.
How do you describe a tenacious, overwhelming performance like that? Well, DeSean Jackson found one interesting way, referencing a pregame shoving match with several Redskins (from USA Today):"The pregame altercation got us going. It had us ready. We came back into the locker room pumped," Jackson said, via the AP.
"We were like pit bulls, ready to get out of the cage."
Wow. What an idiot.
