Even DeSean Jackson can’t outrun this one.

The former Buc free-agent bust gave his detractors plenty of new ammunition this week when he used his Instagram account to talk up Adolf Hitler and Louis Farrakhan. Quite an exacta, those two.

Jackson failed to obey the first rule of social media — never mention Hitler’s name unless you plan on excoriating his evil intentions and deeds.

Jackson’s posts are so offensive, they don’t deserve to be detailed in this column, but let it be clear: he hasn’t exactly been a paragon of unity during these troubled times.

My response is simple: dump his ass.

The league issued a statement condemning Jackson’s remarks, but the weak executives at the NFL office are hoping this debacle gets resolved at a club level. Maybe it will, maybe not.

The football is now on Philadelphia’s side of the line of common decency.

If the Eagles are worried about the cap hit in releasing Jackson, shame on them.

One of the few voices of reason in this atrocity is former Eagles president Joe Banner.

“If a white player said anything about (African Americans) as outrageous as what DeSean Jackson said about Jews tonight there would at least be a serious conversation about cutting him and a need for a team meeting to discuss,” Banner said in a tweet. “Which would be totally appropriate. Absolutely indefensible.”

Some Jackson apologists are pointing to a 2013 incident involving ex-Eagles receiver Riley Cooper, who uttered a racial epithet at a security guard after being denied backstage access to a Kenny Chesney concert. Cooper was fined but remained on the team.

Apples and oranges.

Cooper’s reprehensible remark was said on the spur of the moment with no reflection. Jackson had all the time in the world to consider the impact of his unacceptable posts.

Dump his ass.

Since Jackson’s posts surfaced, he’s been on an apology tour, claiming ignorance. He says he meant no harm and would never demean a particular religion.

“Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way,” Jackson said in a follow-up Instagram post.

If the Eagles won’t act, the league should step in and suspend Jackson for smudging the NFL shield. Hitler needs no introduction while Farrakhan once labeled Hitler, “a very great man.”

In retrospect, Jackson takes his rightful place in the lengthy roll call of Buc free-agent gaffes, joining Alvin Harper, Chris Baker, Anthony Collins, Michael Johnson, Derrick Ward, Eric Wright and countless others.

He took $23.5 million from the Bucs — and wasn’t worth a plug nickel when it came to connecting with Jameis Winston.

It’s still hard to believe Jackson’s lack of production during two seasons at One Buc Place. He caught five TD passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick and only two from Winston. He averaged $258,000 per reception as a Buccaneer.

Hey, nice work if you can get it.

When the Bucs decided to move on from Jackson in 2019, they had to settle for a sixth-round pick from the Eagles. Jackson still had elite speed, but he had also developed a reputation for being a disgruntled employee, someone whose cynicism you didn’t want rubbing off on young players.

Call it past interference.

Now Jackson has been exposed, once and for all. He’ll be 34 in December, so let’s not hear any drivel that he’s too young to know better.

This wasn’t an off-hand comment, which would be bad enough. This was a deliberate post from a buffoon with almost a million Twitter followers.

Dump his ass.

  4. chris L Says:

    well said ira. maybe we can find out the story lee mentioned on how he tried to derail jameis’ career! get it out!

  5. Bucsfanman Says:

    Man, stop with the nonsense. The Bucs KNEW what they were getting when they got him. Plain and simple!
    This is exhibit ‘A’-‘Z’ as to why social media is just not a good forum to express your views. A post doesn’t have to be offensive, it can just have the perception of being offensive to be offensive.
    Clearly DJax is a moron, and like most morons, should STFU. Just because you have an opinion does not mean you HAVE to share.
    ALL social media platforms should have a built in “don’t send it” delay of 1-2 days. Once it’s said, you OWN IT!

  6. Jim Bob Says:

    It’s absolutely mind-boggling to me that the guy can quote HITLER, and then claim he’s ill-informed and somehow not face any sort of repercussions from his employer. I have a hard time believing Jackson’s typing this quote thinking, “Whoever this Hitler guy was, he had some pretty good takes about the Jews!”. And he attributes it to Hitler, so clearly he’s aware that he’s posting a quote from Hitler. He didn’t quote it and then have someone take him aside to warn him he just quoted the guy. No, he typed a quote and gave him credit and didn’t see how that could maybe, possibly, be a problem. And it’s not like it’s some innocuous quote from him like “Art school is more difficult than people realize,” it’s pretty much the type of thing you’d expect from, well, Hitler. This guy is the epitome of a clown. Get this dude TF out of the league, period.

  7. ocala Says:

    Absolutely ridiculous that players dumped all over Drew Brees for saying he would never consider kneeling for the national anthem, while DeSean Jackson spews this racist crap and we hear crickets from the players.

  8. Mike Says:

    The people who would cry and say this is the same as what Cooper said are the same ignorant fools that would believe NOT one African American that is in the NFL has ever used the derogatory and racist comment “Cracker” in a off color way. People of all colors have racist D!(%$ in their respective ranks, the African Americans can’t possibly be racist crowd needs to shove off.

  9. Leighroy Says:

    Apples and oranges compared to Cooper’s incident? Maybe, maybe not. 2 thoughts:

    1. “…spur of the moment with no reflection” doesn’t excuse an outburst. Some degree of pre-established hate must exist in the heart of someone who has an outburst like that. And to argue that Jackson had time to reflect before posting on social media, goes against exactly how anyone, especially 45, uses social media in 2020. Point being, reflection is irrelevant here bc it wasn’t a factor in either case.

    2. In 2013 there was not the same elevated level of outcry against racism boiling within the social zeitgeist as there is at this moment. If Cooper’s incident happened today (The Sickness aside) he would be cut, not fined in this current environment.

    But make no mistake; these are two ignorant people who behaved ignorantly. Apples, oranges… it’s all still spoiled fruit.

  10. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Hey now….. in DJax’s defense…

    He was probably high as a MF’er!
    And yeah, that was his weed in his truck awhile back.

    POS crybaby racist.
    Yes….. dump his ass!

  11. bucsince79 aka bumaneer Says:

    You know the difference between a canoe & D Jax? Sometimes a canoe tips!!!
    Total TURD…

  12. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I think that was Lasean McCoy wasn’t it?

  13. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I think there is a huge degree of difference in the Riley Cooper and DJAX incidents. They are both bad but Coopers is minor in comparision. It revealed a lack of class and certainly some racism in Cooper. But it was not a political statement!

    DJAX is an example of Dunning Kruger effect… a cognitive bias whereby people who are incompetent at something are unable to recognize their own incompetence. IE Too dang stooopid to know how stoooopid they is.

    How many history courses do you suppose DJAX took in college? Political Science? He’s just shooting off his mouth in ignorance.

    Ignorance is no excuse however…I expect some kind of statement on this by tonight. DJAX will be cut loose and the league and or Eagles will have a statement.

  14. Howard Cosell Says:

    Ira is a super nice guy unless you push him far enough!!

  15. JGhotier Says:

    Well FN said and all so true. These words speak for themselves and the intelligent and good ones should all be in unity re: this and the appropriate reaction 🙌

  16. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Hall of fame talent…probably out of chances at this point. His triumphant return to Philthy lasted all of two games. Ira ain’t playing this time!

  18. gp Says:

    Not even on their radar
    The police weren’t involved

  19. Alanbucsfan Says:

    You never know
    They may have already threatened the Eagles and NFL

  20. zzbuc Says:

    I agree with you Sage…the only thing I have a diference is with your Cooper remark….
    Both things are disgusting, they hurt my years…I am not Jewish neither black, but there are things that you just don´t have to say, just because you can´t spit your hate wherever you like, get control of your emotions, if you can´t just get a shrink and get some medicine…..There is no free pass for agression here….Things have to slow down……
    I would kick his a** out of the league forever, you just can´t make those remarks they are way out of the line….. Farrakan and Hitler….men what a sick person you have to be…..

  21. kyle Says:

    The cancel culture has officially scared the reason out of all of us. Does anyone else feel outrage?? Drew Breeze was killed for his “nothing” comments and his apology tour was disgusting. This Desean Jackson, the racist and anti Semite, can spew this nonsense and have no repercussions??? This whole movement towards equality is a joke!!

    If your white, you can not even have a debate or legitimately express your opinions, protected under the 1st amendment, less be a racist, your job is taken away, and you are an outcast.

    All lives matter

  22. Buczilla Says:

    Awesome article Ira.

    No way in hell that Jackson gets cut and I’d be surprised if he gets any type of punishment whatsoever. In today’s ultra politicized (gosh I hate politics and every single politician is a lying crook) world there is a clear double standard when it comes to non-blacks speaking out. Brees was excoriated for speaking his mind and while his comments were ill timed, he nonetheless received an excessive amount of abuse for it. Ed Reed lashed out like a little b!tch at him, LeBron came down on him etc. Pro Football Talk (an outfit that I am slowly losing respect for) ran at least one article a day on the subject. PFT is all crickets on Jackson’s comments.

    Clearly there are problems in America but not shooting straight with people and ignoring stories (PFT) only confirms your overt bias towards one side. The only way that we are going to resolve our issues is by being real with one another. That can’t happen if one side is covering up the misdeeds of those they feel are on their side.

  23. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Come on Ira! Whaddya mean I wasn’t a great free agent signing for the Bucs! I was a true number 1, and my talent was wasted in Dallas in the shadow of Michael Irvin! I truly blossomed in Tampa as a #1!

  24. BA Redzone Says:

    With Ira —- dump his ass!

  25. DoooshLaRue Says:


    I agree with you 💯
    Total BS!

  26. Clean House Says:

    How’s Djax any different from every other moron popping off on social media.
    I’m hardly defending him but just saying that many many people are behaving disgracefully.

    Let’s stop pretending these people are role models. Most people suck.

    The most important example, our own president, posted someone yelling white power, and another one with a guy saying the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.

    We are in sick and twisted, frightening times.

  27. BigHog Says:

    OUTRAGE…Cancel Culture….Sons Of Bitches…don’t get me started!!!

    Go back to watching Don Lemmon and don’t forget your bottle of lotion.

  29. Clean House Says:

    Trump reposted a Mussolini quote once.
    I think one could make the argument that he’s both hateful and a moron.

    And yet you hillbilly white folk will continue to pay his salary and the salaries of all his brothers. Keep buying their racist product and all you do is embolden them.

  34. Bucc941 Says:

    Does anyone remember when minding your own business was socially acceptable?

  35. Maximus Says:

    Please. Ira you made no comment on Floyd’s death. He will not get cut. Do Black Lives Matter to you or Joe? This site and your articles have been SILENT! There will be no Football this season and no Super Bowl in Tampa, due to Trump’s mismanagement of this Pandemic.

  36. Excellent name for this article! Says:

    EXCELLENT name Ira! Finally the fraud is exposed! IMPOSSIBLE to write for one team being a fan boy of a different team!

  37. Ricky Ricardo Says:

    Deshean Jackson- You CANNOT do the BABALOO!!!

  38. gotbbucs Says:

    Somebody had to pick up the torch where Antonio Brown left it.

    Until these teams and the NFL in general start setting some standards for what is expected of it’s “employees”, this sh!t will never stop. If some everyday “Joe” posts garbage like what some of these guys post they would be fired and walked out of most jobs.
    This is a very few players, most guys realize and appreciate the opportunity that they have, save their money and raise their families right, but these few that run around getting in trouble and acting like complete ass’s should be shown the door. They don’t deserve it. For every one of these jackasses doing it wrong, there are a hundred that do things the right way.
    As fans, once the game starts, we won’t miss the morons one bit. The game will go on and the world will keep spinning, and the fast good industry gets another burger flipper.

  39. Dapostman Says:


    And yet not one of your good guys with families have spoken out against Mesean but oh boy the rage mob came for Drew Brees.

    Lenin once used the term ‘useful idiot’. I’ll leave it at that.

  40. gp Says:


    Good take

    Super size that DeSean!

  41. gp Says:


    Also a good point, but, different group

  42. grammarian Says:

    I’ve said far worse in the past on all fronts and I’m sorry. I am sorry for those in the comments whose rage has hardened their hearts and are incapable of empathy and compassion. Stuck in a fugue of victimhood and righteous entitlement they can’t simply let others in pain have their say… This IS going to be a very difficult time for all of you, Some deep breaths and a reflection on your own “side of the street” could be beneficial…

  43. gp Says:

    Drew was ambushed in an interview
    DeSean posted unbidden

  44. gp Says:

    I can also agree with most of your post
    I’d love to be banking some of DeSean’s pain! $$$

  45. Bucc941 Says:


    Do you know why the rage mob came for Drew Brees? Same reason why Ira came for DJax… DJax didn’t mind his own business and decided to share his opinion on something he really knew nothing about. It’s ok to stfu sometimes, but celebrity and social media gives people a sense of false entitlement to where they think their individual thoughts, belief’s, opinions and etc. Should be acceptable to everyone. That’s not how the real world works.

    Go Bucs! Lol

  46. Stanglassman Says:

    White supremacists, neo-Nazis, and black nationalists or any other racist movement coming from conservative fundamentalism movements should not be tolerated no matter the color of their skin.

  47. gp Says:

    Look again!
    They’re not coming from “conservative fundamentalism movements”
    You’re aiming the wrong direction

  48. D1 Says:


    Agree they shouldn’t be tolerated.

    But they are radical leftist movements. Socialists! In the USA, only the left supports these types of radicals and they’re goals of fundamentally changing America.

  49. Stanglassman Says:

    Yes it is. I have a masters degree in this area. I usually wouldn’t pull that card but this is a area I’ve studied my entire life. I can point you in the direction of a few good books in this area that aren’t filled with academic jargon if you’d like.

  50. Looking at You! Says:

    Well Ira, I feel where you’re coming from. IN FACT, I’m thinking more along the lines of WHIP HIS JEW HATING ARSE is what happens where I come from. Where I’m from YOU BETTER show Respect or that check your mouth just wrote WILL BE cashed with your Arse!
    No Matter your Race, Creed, Color, or Religious background!

    And BTW, I have a STRONG FEELING that Most of us, 95% AREN’T INTERESTED in falling in line with the some of you people’s Socialist, and Communist ideas. AT ALL!

    You don’t like the President, then don’t vote for him. Besides that, NOT INTERESTED IN JUST ANOTHER FORM OF COMMUNIST VIEWS! Some would call it another form of slavery… Just ask the Chinese, Russian, or Cuban citizens how they feel about Your Socialist/Communist Dictatorships and if they would Rather have say Trump as their President here in “Thank God” still free America or ANY of the countries I just mentioned. Of course I’m leaving out PLENTY of other countries say like Venezuela or say North Korea… You don’t like my country “America” then why don’t you go live in lovely North Korea where Socialism, Communism, and Dictators WILL LET YOU KNOW if You live or die today MUCH LESS if they feel nice enough to give you toilet paper today. Well, if they don’t run out While you’re in the line.

    That’s what you fools Keep begging for and praying to. So why don’t you pedal your crap ELSEWHERE! This is a FOOTBALL SITE!

    And to think of ALL of those soldiers who DIED protecting morons who Don’t appreciate the Miracle Country we live in. THE BEST COUNTY ON THE ENTIRE PLANET FROM THE DAY THAT THE CONSTITUTION WAS SIGNED UP TO THIS VERY DAY.

    And why some of you would Choose Slavery over Freedom is MIND BOGGLING TO MOST OF US…

    In the end, Socialism begets Communism. And at it’s VERY CORE is Slavery to the Government and Of Course it’s Dictator..

    “If a white player said…”

    The fact that you have to write any sentence which begins like this, is proof that there is a two-tier system to determine who is a racist.

  54. Bush's Coke Spoon Says:

    Bucsfanman Says:
    “A post doesn’t have to be offensive, it can just have the perception of being offensive…”
    Exactly, and the problem with this is, who decides what is considered offensive? It keeps changing.

    Which is why I will never advocate for someone to be fired or “cancelled” over their opinion or beliefs. If DeSean (who I do not like) believes something, then to him it IS a fact. The way to defeat bad ideas is not through cancellation. It is through debate and education. If DeSean is wrong, then someone should demonstrate why he is wrong. Give a history lesson. Don’t destroy people over opinions. That is not the way to CHANGE people’s opinions. All it does is make them go underground.

  55. Bush's Coke Spoon Says:

    ocala Says:
    “Absolutely ridiculous that players dumped all over Drew Brees… while DeSean Jackson spews this racist crap and we hear crickets…”
    The oppressed people, it stands to reason, are the ones who are not allowed to express controversial opinions.

    America as a free country, what a joke. World War 2 was a banker war just like World War 1. The largest corporations in America helped build Hitler and Germany for profit, building it up and tearing it down. Companies like Ford Motor, IBM and many others supplied the Nazi war machine. The US banks were all behind it.

  65. Bush's Coke Spoon Says:


    “The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes… As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong it’s reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

    gp Says:
    “From a speech? Or just a statement?”

    IDK. I looked around a bit and could not find that info, but it is fairly widely quoted. Yes, that was General Eisenhower. You’ve probably heard Kennedy’s speech against the CIA and secret societies. A number of presidents have tried to warn the public.

    I’m pretty sure that Lincoln wasn’t killed for just freeing the slaves, like we are taught. I’m convinced that he wanted to close the central bank of his day and return us to constitutional currency. Just before Kennedy was shot, he has the Treasury issue currency outside of the Federal Reserve system.

    Andrew Jackson was shot for the same reason, I believe. I think he was the only president to pay off our national debt, which was a goal he ran on. Also the first to survive an assassination attempt.

  70. Only here for the comments Says:

    This article was so predictable, not once have you Ira said anything about George Floyd or about anything racist or insensitive that the President has said but as soon as DeSean Jackson says something offensive it’s “dump his ass” what a joke. Was what DeSean said offensive you bet it was but now all of a sudden this is the most egregious thing you have seen? You pointed out how Joe Banner said if a white guy said this, well we have evidence that, that is not the case and the fact that you downplayed what Riley said shows that you have no clue on the black perspective. I am not defending Jackson just calling out the hypocrisy of this all. White people are silent then now they want to speak up about something that will have no negative impacts to themselves. This article is weak and the comments only further prove the point.

    Let’s all try to grow and have acceptance from each other and for each other. This includes black Americans, white Americans, native Americans which should include the Jewish culture as well!

    Real Jews, of the Torah, largely adopt the culture of their nation of residence. Talmudic culture, I know entirely too much about already. Not real Jews, interlopers who hide behind the innocents. God help us all.
