A nice lede from a great article by Bob Brookover this morning titled “Jackson: Ego, Bravado, Talent.”
Talk to DeSean Jackson long enough and you begin to wonder if one day his head will be so big that it will no longer fit inside that giant green inflatable helmet he’ll run through this afternoon before the Eagles’ season opener against the St. Louis Rams.
Ask him if he’s better than Rams rookie Donnie Avery, who was the first receiver taken in this year’s draft, and he doesn’t hesitate with his answer.
“Come on, man,” the Eagles’ rookie said after Thursday’s practice. “No disrespect to him, but I’m putting myself up there as the best.
Love the guys confidence. I think most Eagles fans can’t wait to see this guy make some plays. Let’s hope he backs up his talk on the field. He’ll certainly get his chance today.
