Everyone in the NFL knows that DeSean Jackson is one of the cockiest, most outspoken players in the league. The Philadelphia Eagles‘ star wide out has the right to talk when he has been torching the rest of the league this season, on pace to have the best year of his career.
Jackson has had quite the season so far, catching 28 passes for 525 yards and three touchdowns through five games. In fact, he’s on pace to smash his previous career-high of 1,156 yards which he posted in his second year in the league in 2009.
There’s no way around it: DeSean Jackson is scary good. Any guy that can return punts as good as anyone in the league, although he doesn’t do that anymore, and catch passes and be a No. 1 option at wide receiver deserves some attention.
On Sunday afternoon, his Eagles hit the road to take on the winless New York Giants. The two rivals have had many classic games in the past, but now that neither of them have been a huge threat this season, the game was fairly dull and lightly cared about.
Jackson scored a touchdown against the horrid Giants defense and celebrated in a way only Victor Cruz, the talented Giants wide out, has done in the past: the famous salsa dance.
This is pretty funny, but at the same time it had to anger the Giants fans as Jackson did it mockingly, almost making fun of the fact that he didn’t find the endzone in the Giants’ loss.
Well played, DeSean. Your move, Victor.
