Who do you see winning the NFC East next year?

The Philadelphia Eagles.

Andrew (Georgia)

Which would you consider your arch rivals, the Giants or Cowboys? Why?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:00 PM)

I would have to say the Cowboys because we go at it with them every year. They are also known as "America's Team" and it's always fun beating "America's Team."

Nathan (Missouri)

Hey DeSean, who was your favorite player growing up?

DeSean Jackson

My favorite player growing up was Michael Irvin.

Nathan (Kentucky)

DeSean, assuming there is a season, what are you looking forward to the most this season?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:02 PM)

I just look forward to getting back out there and competing with my teammates. Playing football is something we love to do.

Ike (Philly)

Do you secretly want Michael Vick to lose in the madden NFL 12 Cover Vote because of the "injury curse" attached to it?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:02 PM)

I wouldn't say that I want him to lose but I am aware to the curse. I do want him to win though.

Matthew (Los Angeles,CA)

What went through your mind during the kick return that won the game against the Giants?

Don't kick me the ball and if you do I'm sending you home.

Zachary Miles (Windham, ct)

hey jackson your my favriote player of all time and i want to ask what do the eagles have to do to win the super bowl next year

DeSean Jackson
  (1:05 PM)

I think we just have to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. We all have one destination that we want to get to and now we just have to accomplish it.

Chris (Kentucky)

What do you feel about the lockout?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:06 PM)

Honestly, I think that everything will work out. I just want it to be over and done with so we can get back to playing and get back to our jobs.

What's up D-shawn!!!! What do you think our team needs to draft most of all? And who are you closest to on the team?

DeSean Jackson

A cornerback.

Attila Ecsedy (ventura, CA)

what advice would you give a person that wanted to be a WR? What would they have to do

DeSean Jackson
  (1:08 PM)

You have to be dedicated to what you want to do. You have to work hard and have somebody to look up to. Somebody to help you get to your ultimate goal.

Tyler (Atlanta)

Desean I just started workouts for high school football for the first time. Can you tell me the best way to stay patient for a starting job because I don't quite have the skills like Desean Jackson?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:10 PM)

Just have confidence in yourself to go out there to make the team and then the starting spot. You may not have the skills now but if you work harder than everybody you will get noticed.

Jesse (iowa)

You have been on the cover of ncaa college football before. What would it mean to you to oneday grace the cover of madden yourself?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:10 PM)

I was on the Cover of NCAA Football in 2008. As far as the Madden cover, because of the curse, I'm not too sure I want that cover.

Caleb Repko (Suffolk, VA)

Were you surprised by Michael Vicks success when he returned to the league last season?

DeSean Jackson
  (1:11 PM)

I wasn't surprised at all. I was confident in him and I know what he is capable of doing. He's been a great player for a long time and he's a player I looked at growing up.

Hey Desean, huge fan. How are you and the guys working out during the lockout? Anyone orginizing a group thing, or everyone doing it on their own?

Mitchell (Philly)

What do you like the most about Philadelphia as a city?

DeSean Jackson
