So would the press conference announcing his dismissal.

 

Even if it were true, a head coach coming out and saying "I let my personal feelings about a player affect a roster decision" would be equivalent to saying "Dear Team Owner, Please fire me now!"

I know I'm going to probably get some flak for this, but outside of the gang ties allegation, let's really be honest with ourselves:

 

Both on and off the field, Desean Jackson is more like Steve then we care to admit.

He wanted D-Jax gone because as the way he saw it, Jackson's personality did not mesh with his vision for the team.  It's that simple.  

 

All the other gang ties and bad teammate b.s. was just that: b.s.  

 

I prefer honesty to bullshit. Sure people may feel some type of way about it, but it beats giving side stories and lies wings.

Football reasons? I mean all the 1,332yds and 9TD reasons? Give us a break Chip! Hopefully we show him some good stuff this year when we play them.

Football decision doesn't just mean his play on the field. Could also be a financial decision, as he was being paid 10+ mil this season.

He was probably asked a question which led to this quote. A "football decision" could very well mean, "fug you, I'm tired of being asked this question, so here is a generic answer". Everything about the NFL is about football.

Drama queens always assume drama sheesh

Considering the actual pictures and stories I've seen, the "gang ties" are really pretty factual.

Now he may not be going out with them on hits or deals, but its pretty evident that he's close, through friendships AND his recording studio, with plenty of gang-bangers.

What "Gang Allegations"?

 

That story (the actual assertion, not the article) was retracted/dismissed by it's author

 

He was only speculating on the Eagles reasons, which we know had more to do with Jackson, the coach and his teammates. 

 

But yes; both Steve and DeSean, are crazy receivers (though you can argue Jackson has actually gotten into less trouble than Steve relative to their tenures in the NFL).
