The Eagles react to LaRon Landry, strongly

By Dan Steinberg


Paul Tenorio did a nice job summing up the storm around LaRon Landry from Monday Night's game, but the Philly media produced so many quotes on his pre-game incident with DeSean Jackson that it's hard to find all of them. (Thanks to 700 Level for this video, by the way.)

Here's Jeremy Maclin, on the suggestion that Landry was talking junk about Jackson's concussion, via CSNPhilly:

"There's just certain things that you talk about and certain things that you don't," Maclin said. "In incidents when somebody is really hurt - just life-changing incidents like that - you just don't joke about those types of things. Thirty was running off at the mouth a little too much. He's supposed to be one of the elite players in the league, but there are certain boundaries that you don't cross, and he definitely crossed them."

And here's Quintin Mikell, also via CSNPhilly:

"DeSean is going in minding his own business, and the guy comes over there and starts chirping. All right, we're not going to let that happen. We're here to play, we're not scared. You can talk all you want, we're ready to play ball, and it escalated from there. We got into the locker room, and we were already fired up, but that got us fired up even more. They just added fuel to the fire. We were ready to go, and that made it even worse. Thank No. 30 for that one. Especially first play of the game - we went right after him. Maybe he should have been more ready to play ball than talking."

Apparently every member of the Eagles was asked about Landry. Here's Jason Avant, via USA Today:

"Well he is a dirty player, and we know that and it's one of (those) things where we want to play our hardest and let our play speak for itself. All that extracurricular stuff is high school, and I guess trying to create rivalries."

Meanwhile, CSNPhilly's Derrick Gunn apparently said that Redskins were saying things like "lights out" to Jackson before the game.

"He got his" Eagles center Mike McGlynn said, via PhillyBurbs.com. "We got after him pretty good. The things that he did during the game, spitting on me twice....I don't have no respect for that. There's no place for that in our game."

"It was just real disrespectful, and we felt we need to go out there and put a real good smashing on him," Jackson said, again, via this fairly amazing CSNPhilly story.

As for Landry, he stridently denied doing anything dirty or improper or unethical or anything else, both to reporters and on his own Twitter account.

To everyone who's truly redskin fan/fan of mine... Knows I never been a dirty player/never will!!! Supposedly I spit on the center if there's any truth to that I would have been flagged or the guy would have some sort of reaction!!! I just play hard and do anything to help the team win... As for as D. Jack that's my guy been home boys for awhile so to y'all who wanna read blogs/the Internet find out the truth to stories/not a writer trying to stir confusion!!! Tough lost as a hold... Still have a lot of fball left... Hail to the skins!!! Good morning!!!

I'm guessing this is going to be the new "Donovan McNabb Got Benched!!!1!1!1!" for a few days.

Bunch of jokers... all of them. DB makes a tackle, sometimes after the RB rumbles for a first down, and he jumps up pounding his chest. Skins WRs makes a simple catch and acts like he scored to win the SB. Does it ever cross their minds how foolish they make themselves look?

I think the word we're looking for with regard to Landry is "exposed." From the first play to the last -- the Dude was constantly out of position, unable to make a tackle, and generally, looking like he would have rather been anywhere else but on that field.

Meanwhile on the other side of the line, I guess we can look for Joey Galloway to be a beast against Tennessee. What a waste of a roster space!

Steinbog, we need pictures of your television showing us how far apart Landry and the center actually were on the extra points in question.

Preferably non-HD.

Irony:

“The pregame altercation got us going. It had us ready,” Jackson said after the Eagles obliterated the Redskins, 59-28. “We came back in the locker room pumped up. We’re like pit bulls ready to get out of the cage."

Billy Ray Cyrus did a nice job on the National Anthem. And then the Redskins, the most irrelevant NFL team other than Buffalo or Cleveland over the past 20 years, stepped onto the field.

4-12 gets us another good draft pick though!!

The spitting incidents should be pretty easy to verify or debunk.

And if McGlynn is proven to be lying, he should be punished by the NFL.

Landry: "I just play hard and do anything to help the team win..."

When?

At least he took advantage of that college education. Was he an english major.

Here's the deal. Landry has been known as " Dirty 30 " since he came here. This isn't the first time he's been accused. Numerous accusations make it probably true. He's stupid. Always out of position, can't cover. I've seen him numerous times thump his chest after stopping a guy on a 20 yd pass completion! He's dumber than a box of hammers. Yes, he hits like one, but he also thinks like one.
We should have kept Ryan Clark and traded Landry. Pittsburgh starts Clark every game and he's smart....imagine that.
This team is an absolute mess. I've been a fan since George Allen and I think this is as bad as I've seen. 6 - 10 will be a miracle with our remaining schedule. We need to start with an O line, work from there. And that 34 defense.....how's that working? Our D was the only good thing the last few years and we blow it up!
Help me.......

Sounds like most of you never played football. Landry had a bad game, clearly, but he is also the best athlete we have on D, so he is key to the Skins success on that side of the ball. The position he plays is extremely difficult in Haslett's system. If you want to point out weakness in the secondary how about Hall, who can't tackle for his life and was burned time and time again!

Landry had a bad game?? You're joking, right? Look at film of his career, and count how many smart plays he's made. Yes, he's a great athlete. So was Secretariet...only the freaking horse was smarter
Landry is like the Tazmanian Devil, flying around hitting everything and everybody. Thumping his chest in the end zone after a crushing tackle.....and TD for the other team!!!

For those looking for LL30 after the last game of the season, you will find him in Hawaii preparing for the Pro Bowl.

Keep playin ball "Dirty 30", clearly we need a consistant pass rush. I had gained some love back for Big Al, but after laying on the turf....it's all gone again. We need to say cya to anyone who quit on the field last night. 3-4 D will be better once we can get the correct personnel to run it.

It's amazing behavior, considering the Skins havent won anything of note for longer than any of the current idiots have worn the uniform. But the local pundits, reporters, and retarded fans STILL think they're great, and another Super Bowl is JUST AROUND THE CORNER. Hilarious, if it wasnt so freakin delusional...LOL

Surely, somewhere there must be film of Sammy Baugh, coming to the stadium; dressing; playing the game; scoring; winning; going home.

A lot of Redskins would benefit from seeing such a film if there is one. One thing Baugh (and Joe Gibbs, another guy some current Skins could learn from) understood well: talking smack can only make you look bad. It says nothing you don't say by just winning the game.

Vick isn't that good; the Eagles aren't that good. Nor the Skins that bad. They beat 'em just a few weeks ago, and knocked Vick out of that game. Just like the Redskins beat the Bears, 7-3...and a few weeks later got annihilated 73-0.

After their owner - you can bet not Baugh -called the Bears crybabies and quitters.

Pro players are ready enough, without you focusing them totally on your destruction.

Landry drives me nuts, all the posing and chest thumping and then he get's burned/thumped himself, over and over. Dude should keep his mouth shut and let his playing do the talking as he has no right to brag - the way he and his team gets beat and has done very little the last few years. Moss & Portis are much the same....they all need to have a reality check & face facts. Carry yourself like a pro, show respect and you'll be respected (fools). As a lifelong (40+) year fan - you continue to embarrass us and did so royally last night.

NO. He said that?!

Then I guess we were DOA, like a bunch of Vick's loser pit bulls. He basically hung weights around our LB's necks and drown them in shallow pools, while he electrocuted our playoff hopes.

And what he did to Haynesworth!! He musta put rat pellets in his Big Mac! Had the man doing Saturday Night push ups in the middle of a TD play.

I wonder if Vick ever just cut the jugular of any of his dogs. Why the elaborate "I'm Gonna Get You Bat Man" schemes? Why not a bullet to the head of dogs that lost? I mean, I love a good shallow, struggling drowning as much as anybody, but isn't it just a bit sadistic? Why not a quick, less horrible death?

That Vick! He sure is something! Just looking at him gives me the Heebie Jeebies. He's a tremendous athlete, though. One of the best to play the game. But even that pales in comparison to how disgusting a "person" he is.

I don't believe for one second that he's a "Whole New Person!" Sorry. I just don't. It's not like he cheated on his wife. The guy has been torturing and murdering dogs for at LEAST a decade. If he hadn't gotten caught, he'd STILL be at it.

People who insult him are shot by unknown assailants. The marijuana water bottle incident. The guy is bad news, to borrow the name of his "kennel" [more like Auschwitz for dogs].

The sooner I never have to hear about this Piece of Shtt again, the better.

I wish Landry would have started something with Vick about being soft [which he IS, you'll see. He'll miss more games], but, then again, Landry would have been shot, so, I guess there's a reason for everything.

I wish I knew the reason why Michael Vick turns my stomach so much. He just does. He's a coward and a liar and a great athlete. I'd rather watch Kolb beat us than see that lying, entitled fraud sprinting around the field. But, I guess it's just me.

Heck, Jawz and Gruden were basically fighting over who gets to suck the sweat out of his jock after the game. By the way, I think Gruden won that battle when he "got choked up" about Vick's BS 'redemption.'

May they all be banished forever to Philadelphia as punishment.

WoW were to start? I've been a loyal Redskin fan since 72', back when Football stadiums were named after players coaches and owners that played and love the game. The problems with the Redskins began when Syder purchased the team. He did not and still doesn't have a clue what he is doing. He keeps paying all these over the hill players all this money, given up valuable draft picks, with no results!
Then you want this older team to play a defense that requires alot of quickness and speed. Not going to happen. Why do you change a defense that was ranked in the top 5 in last few years, the only bright spot of your team. The focus should of been on you offense especially your offense line, running backs, and receivers. This team will never make the playoffs until they decide to rebuild and commit to building a quality team with younger players and veteran leadership. It's hard being a Redskin Fan. Bring back the Hoggs and the smurfs!
