The Eagles react to LaRon Landry, strongly
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.
