DeSean Jackson: Rams’ offense is going to be scary

Rams wide receiver DeSean Jackson says other teams should be scared of what the Rams’ offense is going to do this season.

Jackson said that with himself joining holdovers Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson, and the Rams drafting Tutu Atwell in the second round, the Rams have more receivers than opposing defenses will know what to do with.

“With a quarterback like Matthew Stafford, it’s really mind-boggling for other defenses or defensive coordinators to really be sitting back, like, ‘Man, how are we going to stop these dudes?’ For me, I’ve been on some pretty good receiving corps, but Robert and Coop, in addition to Van and Tutu, it’s going to be scary,” Jackson said on NFL Network.

Jackson signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Rams this offseason and indicated that the team’s recruiting pitch to him was less about the money than about the way he’d be used in their offense.

“I have an offensive-minded coach in Sean McVay who’s attuned and knows how to put his players in a position to win,” Jackson said.

If Jackson is right, McVay should have his best offense yet in 2021.

  1. Could be…but, if it’s THAT fast, I fully expect you to tear an ACL trying to keep up.

  2. In 2018 the Vikings sacked Stafford 10 times setting a franchise record in the process. It was brutal to watch and dumbfounding that the Lions had no answers for it. It’s a cautionary tale to the Rams that a quarterback is only as good as the time he has to throw, so they should be focusing on the offensive line or it will be “scary”.

  3. How is the Rams offensive line – will it give Stafford enough time to hit those receivers?

  4. It should be, but unfortunately you won’t be part of it cuz you’ll be injured by week 2.

  5. If his availability due to injuries over the last few seasons is unchanged, he’ll be watching the Rams offense just like everyone else.

  6. As Count Floyd from SCTV would say “Okay kids maybe it wasn’t that scary”

  7. Unfortunately DeSean pulled his hamstring during this interview. He will be out 60-70 weeks.

  8. With a quarterback like Matthew Stafford, it’s like, ‘Man, how are we going to stop these dudes?’
    ——

    Stafford is 8-67 against winning teams.

  9. In Philly he spent more time on social media than the field. For a 27 mill contract the Eagles got 2 good games out of him. Week 1 2019 where he was great and Week 16 2020 where he had his 1st TD since Week 1 2019.

    Between that he was refusing to get surgery, rehabbing in hot tubs and tweeting. It looks like his tweeting fingers are fully healthy for 2021.

  10. Giving Jackson 4.5 mil a year was absurd. If he plays in more than 5 games this year it will be shocking.

  11. The Lombardi trophy goes to the team that wins the Super Bowl. The Walter Payton Man of the Year award goes to the man for on and off the field excellence. What should we call the award for preseason woofing? Let’s call it the JuJu. This award seemingly can be handed out on a daily basis. Today’s winner is DeSean Jackson. Congrats DeSean.

  12. I’m sure you will enjoy being part of the offense both weeks you are healthy this season.

  13. Hey DeSean, the Rams went 8-3 last season against teams with a .500 record, or worse at the end of the season. Against teams with a winning record: 2-3. Guess what happened when you don’t do well against good teams? You watch the Super Bowl from home. Enjoy playing a better Cardinals team and a healthier 49ers team.

  14. Another team going to impose their will on defenses. There seems to be a lot of scary teams in the league this year 🙄

  15. Optimism is good, but it’s June. Even the Jets are optimistic in June and July. Let’s see the same options in December.

  16. lmao

    1. How old is this guy?
    2. Why is it that teams who are not this good always run their mouth this time of year?

    Kupp and Woods are good, but that’s about all they have. They lost their TE in Everett and have old man Stafford in town. This is a middling cap riddled team.

  17. Rams had the best Defense in NFL last year, but lost a few key starters in free agency. They might need to score a bunch just to stay in games.

  18. And you’ll have one of the best seats in the house…injured and watching from the sideline.

    BB would give his left nut to have Stafford on his QB roster

  20. The Rams could be very good. Last year they had a top defense and good running game, and now maybe an upgraded passing game. The WR’s are talented.

    I am interested to see how Stafford does. I know everyone rips him for his record against good teams, but he was playing for the Lions, who typically have a horrible defense and no real talent at other spots. I dont think you can place that W-L record on him.

  21. Sorry Desean, it’s not 2010 anymore. You were always a speed guy with good hands. After you got knocked out by Dunta Robinson in 2011, you started making business decisions. After that it was injury after injury. You won’t play more than 8 games.

  22. I do believe Mr.Jackson said the same thing about Philly`s offense last year! I got everything on him finishing the season on IR

  23. If we listen to all of these glowing reports, from the Jets, Rams, Tampa, Carolina, etc, one would think that half the league will in the Super Bowl this year.

    Mike Tyson said it best: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”

    This upcoming season sure will be exciting.

  24. It’s June and with a few exceptions everyone is talking like they’re going to the Super Bowl. Part of that is their job – be hype men to sell tickets and attract viewers.

    Having said that, that Rams will be a very good team this year. The expectation is the Super Bowl. There’s a lot of pressure on everyone including Stafford.

    Using the same criteria (regular season), Tampa Bay was 9-2 against .500 or worse, 1-4 against winning teams. Give them Jared Goff and it would have been worse, and no Super Bowl for them. Swap out Goff for Stafford and that’s a big upgrade. Plus it’s worth noting that in the Rams loss to Green Bay, maybe the best player in the league Aaron Donald was a shell of himself because of injury. I’ve got no connection to the Rams, but I gotta give them credit for going all in to try and win a championship.

  26. DeSean tore it up when he played under McVay with the Redskins. Say what you want about him but he is a home run threat everytime he steps on the field. McVay knows that he does two things extremely well – extend defenses and catch bombs and will tailor the Rams offense to these strengths. Do not underestimate the havoc that a home run threat coupled with a QB with an explosive arm can wreak on modern defenses tailored to stop the NFL’s plethora of dink and dunk offenses.
