DeSean Jackson: Talented Idiot
Posted on 16. Sep, 2008 by The Gimcracker in Fail, Sports
In case you missed the Monday Night Football game last night between Philly and Dallas, I’d like to show you something.
First of all, the game was amazing, and I don’t regret how tired I am this morning due to watching the entire game.
Secondly, I hate Terrell Owens. He was the only player that didn’t go across and shake hands with the opposing team, even though he won. He stayed away from center field and gloated to the crowd by himself so the cameramen would have to choose to either film everyone else shaking hands in the middle of the field, or run over and give him all the glory (which he didn’t deserve – I would give more glory to Witten in last night’s game than Owens).
And third but definitely not least, DeSean Jackson had an amazing TD catch, but threw it away like a fool because of his over-inflated ego. I’ll let the video do the talking:
My favorite part is when Mike Tirico (I think) says “That is VERY close. It’s… well it’s a great dance, but, let’s take a peek here.” This was not a touchdown and was ruled dead at the 1-yard line. The Eagles did end up scoring on the next play, but Jackson’s stats have one less TD reception, and McNabb’s stats have one less TD pass, all because of Jackson’s ego.
Now, here’s why I label DeSean Jackson an idiot. This is not the first time this has happened. He did a possibly even dumber thing on a TD run in the 2005 U.S. Army All-American Bowl:
Clearly he’s talented. But he’s also, now, an idiot. I was so glad I wasn’t an Eagles fan when I saw that happen. Can you imagine Wayne, Harrison, Gonzo, or Clark doing that? I would be ashamed to call myself a Colts fan.
