DeSean: Don't boo Eagles at home next week

The Eagles haven't won at home in over 13 months, but DeSean Jackson doesn't want to hear any boos next week.

Following the Eagles' 27-13 win over the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, during which Jackson caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles, the Eagles' receiver addressed questions related to his team's stellar play on the road and inability to win at home.

The Eagles are 5-1 away from home this season but haven't won a game at Lincoln Financial Field since Week 4 of last year, a Sunday night game against the Giants on Sept. 30, 2012.

The Eagles (5-5) will host the Redskins (3-6) next week.

"We gotta get it going. We gotta get back in the swing of things at home," Jackson said Sunday. "Our fans deserve it, things like that. So, hopefully, we can collect something together, figure out what it is and just win in front of our home fans.

"But there's gotta be support. We can't be coming into the game, first quarter, getting boos and all that type of stuff. [The fans] just gotta work with us throughout the game.

"I think as long as everybody is doing their job and doing what they need to do, we'll be all right."

Ex-Eagle Brian Westbrook and Comcast SportsNet's Ray Didinger responded to those comments on Eagles Postgame Live. Neither was at all supportive.

"If they don't want the fans to boo, then give them something to cheer for," Westbrook said, succinctly.

Didinger was a bit more animated, calling Jackson's stance "malarkey of the highest order."

"I just think that is so ridiculous, and so preposterous -- he's blaming the fans? Are you kidding me? They haven't won a game in that building in over a year," he said, apoplectic. "That's the fans' fault? I think that that's just ridiculous. I reject it out of hand, and maybe we've just touched on the reason we're not buying into this team."

Buy into what DeSean is saying? Re-evaulating your stance on booing? Or are you booing already?
