Cowboys didn't like DeSean's end zone antics

Andy Reid wasn't the only one not thrilled with DeSean Jackson's backwards fall into the end zone at the end of his 91-yard touchdown reception.

Some of the Dallas Cowboys weren't particularly fond of it, either.

``It was disrespectful," cornerback Mike Jenkins said. He knew he was going to score. That's him. We beat him three times in a row last year, so he was going to come back and try to everything he could."

Linebacker Keith Brooking: ``He's a great player. Obviously when you make a play like that, you're going to get excited. I don't think that's the best part of football, but I guess he did.''

Defensive back Orlando Scandrick: "We're good friends and hang out in the offseason. He's just being himself. Some people might say a showboat. But we all play this game. It's fun, and what goes on between those lines gets left out there. Is it disrespectful? Possibly."


As we told you in today's Daily News, Tashard Choice said the Michael Vick autograph that he got after the game was for his 3-year-old nephew.

Choice immediately went on Twitter to try to quell the negative fan reaction.

He explained further to the Dallas Morning News. Choice said he knew Vick from the time that Vick was in Atlanta with the Falcons and Choice was at Georgia Tech.

"I have nothing but respect for him," Choice said. "I admire somebody who can overcome circumstances and come back and prove people wrong."

Choice continued his apology this morning on Twitter:

"If its anybody that cares about winning and the d cowboys its me. I apologize to the people it was just an innocent gensture for my nephew."


The Eagles apparently had a rough flight up, according to some players.

"Just touched down in Philly," Jamar Chaney wrote. "That was a rough flight. Had to start praying it was so much turbulence."

"That the Lord," DeSean Jackson wrote. "Jus made it safe, one of the worst turbulence I every witness!! Woke us all up out our sleep."


Asante Samuel was back at the NovaCare Complex this morning for treatment on his knee.

We will see what Andy Reid has to say about his status and other injuries at noon. Check back on Eagletarian for more updates.
