I was all excited for a DeSean Jackson trash-talking one of the best corners in the NFL post… but, nah.
“He’s playing ball. He’s a great player, one of the best cornerbacks in the league. I love facing guys that have the ability to be a shutdown corner. Anytime you have guys like that going into games, it gets the best out of you. You want to step your game up. He’s in a little bit of a different defensive scheme, playing [in Cover 2] a little bit more, he’s moving inside, different things like that.”
“I’m definitely sure his coaches are confident in him, but I don’t think he can run with me, I don’t think he’s as fast as me,” said Jackson. “So it will be a challenge, man. He’s a great player, nothing to take away from him. I’m just focused on what we have to do here, which is win a football game. We’re not going to make it into a one-on-one battle, we’re not going to [make it] me versus Revis. It’s the Eagles versus Tampa Bay, and at the end of the game, as long as we’re winning, that’s all that matters to me.”
Oh. I’m kind of disappointed– that was more reasoned than I thought it would be. Damn. Oh well. I guess we’ll just have to live with DeSean Instagramming videos of his touchdowns…
… and LeSean saying that Knowshon Moreno sucks:
Yeah, that’s more fun.
