DeSean Jackson: "They think I'm the new T.O."

At an autograph signing Thursday in New Jersey, DeSean Jackson and the public relations man present with him made it clear the wideout didn’t want to talk about Donovan McNabb.

Jackson sounds tired of making headlines for his words. 

“They think I’m the new T.O.,” Jackson said about some fan reaction to him.  (UPDATE: Hmm, we’ve heard this before.)

Well, trying to quiet a minor controversy is certainly not Owens-like.

Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News points out that Jackson has quickly become the face of the franchise.  Jackson says he doesn’t feel that way.

The back-and-forth with McNabb was blown out of proportion, but Jackson has to get used to the heightened scrutiny. He doesn’t want to be Owens off the field, but he’s easily the biggest Eagles playmaker on the field since the T.O. show left town.

    “very minor controversy”
    Tell that to Florio, according to him we should expect to see Jackson out in his driveway doing crunches in a few weeks.

  2. BleedGreen says: May 14, 2010 12:41 PM

    A well balanced reporting of the facts with some benign opinion/commentary thrown in at the end. I can tell it was Rosenthal that wrote this, since if it was Florio he’d be saying DeSean is gonna get kicked off the team, and that Steve Smith would punch him in the face, and that he’s an awful human being.

    “They think I’m the new T.O.”
    *****************
    And “they” would be right

  4. BHindEnemyLines says: May 14, 2010 12:43 PM

    And they are correct. Because Philly didn’t win a Superbowl with T.O. and they won’t win one with DeShawna either.
    50 years, Philly fans. That’s how long it’s been since you’ve won a Championship.
    How many of you were even born then???
    Have a great weekend!!!!!!!

  7. BmoreEaglesFan says: May 14, 2010 12:48 PM

    Bigger than Westbrook Circa ’06-’07? I think not… but he’s close…

  8. Hap says: May 14, 2010 12:48 PM

    Im not so sure that’s a moniker he wants.

  9. mmcnulty says: May 14, 2010 12:48 PM

    Sounds like he learned a valuable lesson pretty quickly. Whatever you say, will be twisted and distorted and your original meaning and intent will be lost. Hopefully he doesn’t forget that lesson anytime soon.

    ever heard of b westbrook?

  11. KnuckleBucket says: May 14, 2010 12:49 PM

    Comparing him to T.O at this point seems like a bit of a stretch until he hosts a press conference in his driveway lifting weights.

    What does that mean, “he doesn’t want to be Owens off the field”? TO never gets in trouble with the law & stays in awesome shape. Why wouldn’t someone want to imitate that?

  14. myeaglescantwin says: May 14, 2010 12:52 PM

    This guy supports his team and leads by example..
    all the media fags who never played a down are trying to make a mans’ words into little bitch gossip so they can write a story and get paid. . you fags shoulda signed up to write for the view.
    DeSean never said anything bad about Dmac.
    so i will. this guy lost us so many chances to get a ring. He was NEVER accurate and NEVER had any touch on any passes.. He laughed and smiled when we were losing all the time… TO was right to call him out. We shoulda traded him when we coulda got some value for him and kept Garia for that year or two..
    Watch this offense when we have a QB who doesn’t throw everyball in the dirt. Washington will come in on a high horse and we’ll cram it right down their F’n throats..
    Donny Mc better where his protective vest unless he wants to sit out this year from injury like every other year..
    Cole, Sims, Bunk and Parker are gonna eat that OL alive. Kiss your ribs goodbye..
    How does it feel to know We have DL that are faster than you McNabb.

    They need to bring back Terrell Owens and they can have 2 TO’s.

  19. SeaColt213 says: May 14, 2010 1:00 PM

    Westbrook is/was a beast… But as far as “exciting playmakers” go, i gotta give it to Jackson. Minus dropping the ball before hitting the GL a couple seasons back, he has been nothing short of excellent overall.

    Naw… they’re both very uniquely destructive a$sholes that you can’t turn your back on. T.O. was much more upfront about it.. whereas DeSean is better at being a sneaky little punk. Both bring a lot of character negatives to the table.

  22. ItalienArmyGuy says: May 14, 2010 1:04 PM

    I might be able to kick desean jacksons ass.
    Hes like 5′ 8″ 170
    TOis 6′ 2″ 230
    TO is one the strongest WR ever(all natural too)
    to go along with his elite speed and explosive ness.
    Thats why TO was/is so arrogant. He is one the most elite physical specimens walking the earth. DeSean Jackson is a really fast short guy.
    So ahead, and make your comparisons. You sound like a fool to intelligent people.

    Not sure it will be that bad, but you are on the right track. I don’t care how good Kolb looked in 2 games he isn’t McNabb. Can’t wait for Jackson to start acting like Owens on the field when his QB doesn’t get him the ball 10 times a game.

    ================
    Reading PFT complaining that someone “blew something out of proportion” is so hilarious
    It’s like watching the talking heads on ESPN complain about what the other talking heads on ESPN have said about something
    PFT/ESPN formula for “popularity”:
    1. Find something non-controversial
    2. Say something salacious about the above non-controversial item [or better yet, find an anonymous "source" to say something salacious]
    3. Reprint all statements by others in response to your salacious statements as further evidence of the salacious nature of the previously non-controversial events
    4. Write a post or an article about how the original non-controversial event has now been “blown out of proportion” in the “media”
    5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 as often and as frequently as possible
    6. Re-wash, rinse, dry, re-use, etc…
    7. Watch the advertising money roll in – Ka-Ching!!

    Little (Gee) T.O.

  30. LAEaglefan says: May 14, 2010 1:29 PM

    I saw the last Eagles championship 50 years ago, but I’d appreciate one oh so much more now. At the time I was still a kid and had only followed the Eagles for a few years. So while the win over the Packers was great, I didn’t appreciate just how precious it was at the time. After following the team closely ever since, and watching them go through the annual end of year frustrating losses, a Superbowl championship now would make the win in 1960 look like just another October win over the 49ers or the Lions by comparison.

  31. WhySoSerious says: May 14, 2010 1:30 PM

    T.O. was someone who voiced his controversial opinions. It caused problems in the locker room. But outside of that, off the field, he’s been fine. Always in the best shape, competitive, not a rapist, hasnt killed anyone with his car, drug-free, fought back from an injury to have a great S.B. game, only to have McNabb puke on his shoes. Stay quiet in the media, and being the new T.O. wont be so bad.

  32. Erdessy says: May 14, 2010 1:31 PM

    Lex Luger, you’re an idiot. Using your logic David Boston would be the best wide receiver of all time. Great players come in all kinds of different packages. Just because one guy is bigger it does not guaranty he will be better.
    Is Roy Williams better than DeSean Jackson?

  35. Levito says: May 14, 2010 1:36 PM

    No, westbrook was a huge playmaker for the eagles after TO left. But he wasn’t a wideout, and was already 55% of the eagles offense.

  36. Manbearpig says: May 14, 2010 1:49 PM

    look, i’m a huge Eagles fan and am very pleased djax is on the team, but, believe it or not, i am also a very big T.O. fan and regard many of his “controversies” as media-hype. he seems to be a very very misunderstood individual, and the press (along with comment boards) love to pounce on that stuff because it is SO EASY

  49. overkil2 says: May 14, 2010 2:30 PM

    He had 1 good season 62 rec 1156 yds 9 td and a pretty good season 62 rec 912 2TD.
    He’s not a top 5 receiver in the league in this stage of his career. That doesn’t mean that he won’t be, but he needs to have a few more good seasons 1000+ yds and 7 – 8+ Tds per year to have a chance to be in the top 5.
    All that being said, I’d have to question his durability at 175lbs How many years can he play before his body gives out on him?

    Clearly, every team in this league (and their fanbases) got their chance to take a desean jackson on their team via draft (he went pick 49), and theres widespread regret amongst alot of those organizations for not grabbin this guy. I’m not sayin every1 should love desean, but you would be a fool to take sides with the media who are credited with only putting words in Djax mouth, blowing situations out of proportion, and creating this false “Next T.O.” label for the sake of a half assed story. Who constantly asked Desean about his FORMER quarterback during his preperation for next season…the media. Who shoved the microphone in his face only to later skew his words into what THEY WANTED HIM TO SAY…the media. You see analysts and guys in the media always sayin..”ooo that guys a class act,” “He just says all the right things,” F THAT. Today’s unrelenting media coverage of pro athletes force players to answer questions like robots..showing as little of their own personality as possible as to not have their words spun into something else later on. Being yourself….pffff…they would much rather see another guy “Sayin all the right things.”

  52. King Benny says: May 14, 2010 2:46 PM

    At this point I think it’s safe to say that D. Jackson doesn’t know how to just shut the f!%k up.

  53. tonyro says: May 14, 2010 2:46 PM

    Top 5 WR?!? Seriously?!? You Eagles fans are hilarious. He’s good and he’s an explosive playmaker but he’s closer to being a gimmick than a top 5 WR. Look what he did in physical, playoff style football. Ran his mouth before the Dallas game and was no factor. Should shut his mouth and accomplish something.

  54. Kappy says: May 14, 2010 2:47 PM

    Again, Jackson completely disappeared at the end of last season. He went averaged 3 rec. 30 yds/game down the stretch. 1/4 of his entire offensive output for 2009 came against the Giants JV secondary. Teams adapted to his speed & made adjustments. Comparing him to Steve Smith in Carolina is crazy. Smith is powerful & catches balls in traffic, something Jackson will never do. Jackson is one-dimensional & teams have adapted. He’s not even better than NY’s Steve Smith, the best WR in the NFC East. To say that he’s in the top 5 in the league is crazy. He’s not even top 5 in the division. 1. Steve Smith; 2. Miles Austin; 3. Hakeem Nicks; 4. Santana Moss; 5. Jeremy Maclin. Jackson will put up, at most, 50/600/4 this year. Maybe the most overrated player in football right now.

    This is so stupid. Totally blown out of proportion… he didn’t even claim to be the “new T.O.” as the headline on the NBC Sports page would lead you to believe. He mentions that “they think I’m the new T.O”, and he realizes that it’s a negative. The guy doesn’t want to be seen that way, but he’s still young, in the media spotlight, and has to watch everything he says, or it will be taken out of context (makes for a better story!). He just needs to say “no comment”….oh, but wait, then someone like Florio will say that his “no comment”….his silence, is really telling us that he is disgruntled, and before long will want to be traded. If there is no story….create one.

    “He laughed and smiled when we were losing all the time… TO was right to call him out. We shoulda traded him when we coulda got some value for him and kept Garia for that year or two.. ”
    Losing all the time? 5 NFC Championship games & a SB are “losing” all the time?
    Let’s face it, 5 NFC championship games isn’t “losing all the time”. I bet Lion fans would swap their losing for Philly’s losing, 49ers fans too, Jax fans too, Jet fans too, Buffalo fans too, Phin fans too, Carolina fans too, Dallas fans too if you want to get technical… many teams would swap the last 10 years with Philly fans. It’s kinda like the guy that has a Virginia ham under his arm & cries because he has no bread. Dono didn’t win that SB for you but ya didn’t “lose all the time”.
    The defense & the coaching staff takes a part in “losing all the time” also. Easy to put it all on your QB.
    Oh & BTW, Garcia certainly won a bunch of SB’s in SF huh… Did he even see an NFC championship game? TO also, the only SB he ever sniffed was with Dono throwing him the ball.

    Jackson likes the attention every bit as much as McNabb did. He’s going to be very high maintenance, but not crazy like T.O.

    And for you idiots who dont understand sarcasm.
    Thank you Greg finally you and PFT state the facts and stop trying to stir the pot.
    This story was blown out of proportion and the only reason it was is because Desean is so damn good that people just want to hate on because hes not on his team.

    He’s not as good as TO, he’ll never be as good as TO, and he acts like he’s earned the right. He’s just a punk. Who is he to call out the face of the franchise for the last 11 years? He has earned nothing to this point. He’ll be lucky if he becomes half the player either TO or, for that matter, Donovan McNabb were and are, respectively.
    And myeaglescantwin: Really? NEVER had touch, and NEVER was accurate? Since he’s been in the leage my friend, they are 3rd in YAC as a team. That shows accuracy, and he throws the deep ball on a dime. There is touch. Jackass.

    until this guy actually goes out and has some 10 td seasons, to say this guy is anything close to t.o. is a load of crap.

    Opie, I have no problem with a crazy WR. That’s the price of receiving genius.
    If Jackson can add some muscle he can be Steve Smith of the Panthers, but that’s a long ways away. As is, he’s plenty good enough for me. I’d like to see him be the Holt to Maclin’s Isaac Bruce.

    It’s not even remotely humorous that some people think this Desean-T.O. comparison is performance based in any way…its sad. People think desean will be the new diva WR yappin away endlessly as T.O. did…nothin more. D Jax will prove this season that not only is he a class act, HE IS THE BEST WR IN THE NFC EAST. Call him small, call him weak, YOU CANNOT CATCH THIS MAN

    Anybody that read anything into Jackson’s initial comments other than his unlimited support for Kolb is an idiot. But that’s no surprise since it is a guarantee that 50% of Americans are just that.
    Perfect example = Lex Luger thinks he might be able to kick a world class athlete’s ass. Yeah, sure!
    As a kid, I never weighed more than a buck thirty soaking wet on 5’5″frame but had speed and athletic ability to burn. Many a jerk like Lex a head taller or more did not anticipate that the fight he started would be finished by the little guy kicking his ass. And I was no world class athlete.
    So, Lex, don’t let your words carry over into real life unless you have excellent health insurance.

    as i look back as a long time season ticket holder for the eagles the worst mistake was not keeping owens and i knew it at the time.If they would have kept him mcnabb would be guaranteed to be a hall of fame player,as it stands now who knows what will happen in washington.I like desean but like others have mentioned playing with kolb (who lacks the arm strength to throw the out) is going to be a change from mcnabb. Owens has hall of fame numbers,if desean has half the career t o has had that would be a miracle .I also think he can still play and hope he gets in the right situation this year,it was a thrill to watch what he did in philly and some of their best offensive football

    Where does the comparison to T.O. come from? Yes, they are both excellent receivers, but aside from that…?
    DeSean Jackson is a young, energetic receiver who has experienced a lot of success very quickly in the NFL. He is just the kind of receiver the Eagles need, because they’ve had a bunch of monks for the past 11 years, aside from T.O. and maybe Freddie Mitchell (and his big mouth).
    All DeSean does is talk about how he is excited about how young the team is this year, and that he is looking forward to Kolb being the quarterback. What else has the nam said/done?
    If you want to point your finger at anyone, point it at McNabb, who has a history of being overly sensitive. He had it under control until T.O.’s second year, and then he started acting like everything the media asked him was annoying and a waste of time. While that is probably true, as a leader you have to show the face your team needs to see, not what your insecure little ego feels like showing. McNabb was definitely jabbing DeSean via the media, which is the equivalent of a high school senior picking on a freshman.
    In this case, the freshman has already shown a higher ceiling of potential than the senior did in 11 years.
