DeSean Jackson Feature

The LA Times has an article about DeSean Jackson, his decision to choose Cal over USC and how he compares to Reggie Bush. Some might call his tone arrogant. I think confident is a better word. Here are some excerpts.

On why he chose Cal over USC...
"Just one of those last-minute decisions," Jackson said Monday in a telephone interview. "I kind of felt like they took it for granted that they had me."
On comparisons to Reggie Bush...
"It's just too bad I'm not playing for SC because if I was playing for SC then it probably would be a different thing," he said. "I'm the closest thing to Reggie Bush. But I kind of don't like to follow after too many people. I just try to be myself."
On why he does not like USC...
"There was too much cockiness over there for me. They were SC. They're national champions. They're just guaranteed they could have whoever they want.

"I kind of felt like I was a more special player than that and they shouldn't have taken it for granted like that."
On what he thinks about SC players...
"I heard somebody said I wasn't going to SC because of all the talent they had and all the receivers they had and I was scared and all this," he said. "That never really crossed my mind. I never really thought the players they had there were any better than me or anything like that because I'm capable of doing anything that their players are capable of doing."
Read the entire article here. Say what you want about bulletin board material and motivating the other team through the media, but as long as DJax backs up everything he said in this article, I have no problem with it. Remember, confidence, not arrogance.

If thats not ego, i dont know what it is

4 punt returns for TD, 9 receiving TDs, over 18 yards every time he touches the ball, a TD every 6 times he touches the ball.
I think he has the numbers to back up his ego. Lets just hope he brings both his ego and his game to the field against USC.
