DeSean Jackson Strolls Backward Into End Zone, Internet Reacts Accordingly

DeSean Jackson may be many things, but subtle is not one of them. The former Eagle and current Washington wide receiever has been taunting defenses and making a show of his touchdowns since college. Back then, they were sometimes a little premature; which earned him a reputation for being overconfident.
But now he is older and wiser, and he knows exactly when and where he has the time to emply his showmanship; which is why he was back to his old tricks on Sunday afternoon against the Giants when he broke wide open for this 63-yard touchdown reception.
Listen folks, you don't have to like it but the fact of the matter is that he looked around beforehand and made sure he had the space and time to pull of his little stunt. That kind of showmanship isn't for everybody, and at 4-6 you'd think that Washington should hold the self-congratulatory applause until after they have hit .500. But because the NFL is an absolute shitshow this season - and the NFC East is always a crapshoot - a win over the Giants puts Washington at first place in the division.
Still, there is nothing more irksome to the Twittersphere than someone having a great time and not giving a damn about what they think., and these people were hashtag not impressed.
