On FirstTake, he is reliving 4th and 26. First off, you would think he is Jerry Rice, not a receiver that spent 4 years in the league. Second, he said that the pass from Donovan was a 7, but the catch was a 10. He eluded that Donovan didn't even mean to throw it to his back shoulder, but if you look at the play, it is easy to see that it would've been intercepted if it was to his lead hand.
He actually called himself a great receiver. And he said his tape is what will help DeSean Jackson and everyone else this weekend against the Packers.
Can I have whatever he is on???
His quotes from Philly Sports Daily are as follows...he said something similar on FirstTake:
"You know that play is a love-hate play for me because that was the first time they threw to me the whole friggin’ game. I was blocking my ass off doing everything it took, doing the stuff that society doesn’t recognize.
That whole year sucked for me, and the next year sucked even more. But anyway…
I actually had to go tell the coaches that I was wide open and to throw me the ball. The coaches literally had to talk into Donovan’s headset and tell him I was wide open and to throw it to me.
I started reading the defense as soon as I got to the line of scrimmage. For most guys, it takes a lot of years to read defenses like that.
The name of the play was a 2 Jet Double Go. What it does is sends Pinkston and Thrash on "Go" routes and what I do, as the Sultan of Slot, is I read the middle. I had to take a certain angle that most young receivers wouldn’t have taken. Any other angle and it would have been a bum play. I was the master of finding holes, and I knew right where the hole would be. It was money.
First of all Donovan’s pass was behind me and it was wobbly, but I had to take advantage of the opportunity that was presented to me. Right when I caught the pill, I kind of knew I had the yardage right away. I looked at the sticks and to see where I was at and I knew I got it. I felt like Michael Jordan hitting a last-second shot or Tiger Woods sinking a 50-foot putt.
This is how much of a team player I am: I came to the podium afterward and said, "We don’t need fate when we have 5." Man I blew him up! And that was the headlines in the papers…Meanwhile I’m dealing with him not throwing me the ball, and me being on my knee pads to help him out."
