Earlier today, I wrote about DeSean Jackson’s delusion about where he ranks among the NFL’s best receivers, and was going to point out a question that Michael Irvin asked within the interview, but thought it deserved its own post.
“Now, people are saying he doesn’t want to go across the middle. Cause it was reported that someone on your team said that you’re not going across the middle.”
My first reaction was, “Wait, what?” That would be huge news. Still, I searched for a half hour trying to find it. Jackson did say that staying healthy was his number 1 priority, but that’s a far cry from Irvin’s claim that teammates are saying he won’t go over the middle.
Frankly, it’s completely made up, and as Jason Brewer of Bleeding Green Nation noted, how does NFL Network not catch it when the interview is a week old.
