These quotes from LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson about Tim Tebow look funny now

These old quotes look funny now.

Former Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson literally laughed out loud when he was asked about Philadelphia's signing of Tim Tebow last week.

Jackson is already on record as being one of many non-Tebow fans. From an interview back in 2013, via CBS Philly:

"Forty-six percent (completion percentage)? This is not basketball, that is not good enough," Jackson told NFL’s Total Access. "Throughout the whole season, I don’t know. I don’t know if he can be my quarterback. He won a playoff game, he beat the Steelers," Jackson said. "He’s done a pretty good job in the playoffs, that’s what I can say about him. As far as a consistent season, going throughout the whole year — he’s not consistent. That position is a tough position. … You gotta go out there and improve. I don’t think he (Tebow) is going to go too much higher."

Jackson isn't alone in once criticizing Tebow. Former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy once had some pretty harsh things to say:

"Tim Tebow?! ... Uh... My son is two. I'd take my son over Tim Tebow."

So it seems like it would have been pretty awkward if McCoy and/or Jackson were still around, huh.

But luckily for those two, they won't have to deal with Tebow being a teammate. Instead, McCoy can look forward to ... Matt Cassel ... and/or E.J. Manuel ... while DeSean Jackson still has ... Robert Griffin III ...
