Electrifying Eagles return man DeSean Jackson stopped by the NFL Network studios on Monday to join the crew on “Total Access.” A sight that probably caused most New York Giants fans to turn the channel in disgust.
Jackson’s walkoff punt return against the Giants in Week 15 pretty much destroyed New York’s playoff hopes, as you may remember. The Giants fans here in Culver City certainly do.
With Jackson in house, we put him on the spot and had to ask: Who is the best returner in the game right now?
“I would say myself,” Jackson said. “The reason why I say that is because my technique, and how I can stop on a dime. My speed, my quickness and my vision is just stupid crazy.”
And he’s humble, too. We also asked Jackson to rank the top returners in the game right now. His list?
2. Devin Hester
3. Josh Cribbs
4. Darren Sproles
5. Leon Washington
He also had kind works for the Jets’ Brad Smith and the Chiefs’ Dexter McCluster, but said that while they were good, they were not among that top five, yet.
