DeSean Jackson's new BET reality show "Home Team" debuted on Tuesday evening. To no surprise, the Washington Redskins wide receiver ripped his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, on numerous occasions. Here are some quotes, via Kyle Phillippi of About.com:

"The show's opening includes a monologue in which Jackson says:

"I was at the top of the top... then I got released."

And then he comes in with this great quote as to what happened in Philly:

"It was a smear campaign."

And finally:

"I got a second chance to play in the NFL... and I've proven I'm one of the best receivers in the league."

He then starts to get more into ripping his opponents a few minutes into the show:

"I call myself a Cowboy killer, and a Giant killer. Now I'm an Eagles killer."

The show then goes into his record label, which leads to this quote:

"When I was released by the Eagles, I felt they tried to paint a picture that definitely wasn't true. It was a slap in the face coming off one of my best seasons in the NFL."

Then he is sitting around talking to his boys when he says:

"It's like the Eagles tried to blow me up. That's cold."

His friend then says it's because of where he come from, which draws a response from Jackson:

"That's why I think they fired me. What have I done? Have I gone to jail? Am I in federal? No.""

...

The Eagles unceremoniously dumped Jackson last offseason after weeks of speculation that the team was going to move on from him. As far the "Eagles killer" comment goes, he's not wrong. Jackson racked up 9 receptions for 243 yards (a whopping 27.0 average yards per catch) and one touchdown against Philadelphia last season.

Earlier this offseason in an interview with ESPN, Jackson said he doesn't "really want to get to caught up in what’s going on over there in Philadelphia." Yet here he is still ripping his former team.
