What was DeSean Jackson yelling about on the sidelines? He seemed pissed.

DeSean Jackson put up some big numbers on Sunday in Minnesota -- 10 catches for 195 -- and actually caught a real nice touchdown from Nick Foles. But it was clearly going to be his outburst on the sideline that everyone on sports radio and the Internet were going to be talking about come Monday morning.

The outburst took place shortly after Nick Foles threw in an interception on a ball intended for DeSean down the sideline. It wasn't clear what Jackson was so angry about from watching the TV alone, but one might have guessed someone said something to him about not making a big enough effort to break up the interception.

That was my guess anyway.

CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank tried to get to the bottom of it after the game. A lot of players talked about it, but never really said what DeSean was so angry at. He's just passionate, tis all.

“It was just a point in the game where you’re dealing with a lot of emotions involved, and it’s one of those things that happened,” Jackson said after one of the biggest receiving games of his career.

“I cannot really discuss what happened. That’s what happened, it is what it is.

That's what happened. It is what it is.

More from Frank:

Jackson didn’t answer directly when asked if he felt he could have done more to break up the interception, only the second thrown by Foles in 266 pass attempts this year.

“[I] felt I was open, but he didn’t see me right away,” Jackson said. “I just thought I was open. It took a little bit for the ball to get there. Big part of the game. Big turnaround. Felt I was open but wasn’t able to get the ball and make a play.”

So, who knows. A minor squabble that likely had no lingering impact. But it's still never good to see your squad bickering at each other, no matter the insignificance of it all.

Nerlens Noel on Sixers' frontcourt logjam: 'I don't see a way it can work'

Nerlens Noel on Sixers' frontcourt logjam: 'I don't see a way it can work'

CAMDEN, N.J. — Nerlens Noel is standing his ground.

After saying that the Sixers' entering the season with three starting-caliber centers (himself, Jahlil Okafor, Joel Embiid) "doesn't make sense," Noel didn't back down from his stance during the team's annual media day.  

"I don't see a way it can work," Noel said Monday. "It's just a logjam. You have three young, talented centers that can play 30-plus minutes a night." 

The Sixers attempted to play with two bigs in Noel and Okafor last season but had little success. Now that Embiid is finally healthy, the fit to the puzzle doesn't figure to get any better.

Reports swirled during the offseason that the Sixers were looking to trade either Noel or Okafor to add backcourt help to the woeful franchise, but nothing came to fruition.

"Things need to get situated," Noel said. "I think things obviously need to be moved around, someone needs to be moved around. It's just a tough situation. I can't really say too much because I have no say in the matter, so obviously that's for who can handle the situation in the right manner.

"I've gone through a whole lot. Probably the most, arguably, that any player has gone through in the NBA in losing. It's a tough situation to still be in. Year by year, to see things get more difficult to show your value. Year by year, it's always been something. It's really at a point where it's just a lot."

Bryan Colangelo said he understands Noel's viewpoint. However, the Sixers' president said he is in no rush to trade any of the centers and will wait the situation out.

"It’s not disappointing. It’s understandable," Colangelo said. "I think Nerlens actually did a pretty good job sizing up what we have, which is a lot of depth and a lot of talent at that position."

Despite each of the three centers being early in their career, Noel, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, doesn't want to hold off to see if the trio can actually mesh on the floor.

"I can't say I do really understand that (wait-and-see approach)," Noel said. "If you have a group of players, I just don't think it makes too much sense to just still come into the season with such a heavy lineup at the center position. I don't know what there is to wait and see."

Noel made sure to express that he has no issues with Okafor and Embiid and said they are some of his closest friends on the team. But when asked whether he was happy to be a Sixer, Noel deflected.

"I feel good," he said. "I'm all right, I'm in a good place right now."

Sure sounds like it.

Darren Sproles' TD from Wentz set to Sonic the Hedgehog music

You may fondly remember the time Darren Sproles took a punt return to the house last season and a wonderful Twitter user set the video to the Super Mario Bros.' star music, yes?

It was great.

Now that Sproles' put on the jets again yesterday in the Eagles win over the Steelers, the same @pacdude on Twitter has done it again.

This time it's the theme music from Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Please enjoy.
