DeSean Jackson saves his best move for 'The View'

By Cindy Boren

Believe it or not, this wasn't DeSean Jackson's best moment.

The Philadelphia Eagles' wide receiver, along with teammates Todd Herremans and Jamaal Jackson appeared on "The View" earlier this week Feb. 3 to surprise and support a young fan who was the victim of bullies. Now, I don't watch "The View" and I happen to live in a place where the Eagles aren't exactly beloved, but danged if it isn't a great moment when Nadin Khoury's face dissolves into tears as his hero walks onstage. It reminds you of the power athletes have and ... how cool it would be to have your hero support you on national TV.

"I was just sitting in the back room looking at the video and first and foremost I just want to say you're brave 'cause this happens every day and people are not brave enough to take this on," DeSean Jackson tells Khoury. "... Any time ever you need us, I've got two linemen here."

Agreed, John. That kid's face is so great...I was wondering what the salty substance was coming from my eyes.

Classy move, too bad it's completely classless on the field.
