Reid Has Nothing But Praise For Jackson

Despite reports that he was took issue with DeSean Jackson's pre-game routine on Sunday, head coach Andy Reid showered his wide receiver/return specialist with plenty of praise on his weekly radio show on Monday evening.

"I don't know where that comes from," Reid said of the report. "This guy is one of the top players in the National Football League, not only as a special teams player but also as a wide receiver. I love his enthusiasm. He wants to make the play. When it's clutch time, he wants the football. I love that part about him."

If Reid did have a problem with Jackson - or any player for that matter - he would communicate that to him.

"This goes with any player. If I have a problem with him, then we talk about it," Reid said.

Reid was also reportedly angry with his players in the locker room following the 31-26 loss to the Bears. Again, Reid said that he prefers to keep anything along those lines in-house.

"Whatever happens in the locker room afterwards happens in the locker room," Reid said. "We take care of that as a football team. We don't let it out and we move on. We get it together and we go."
