DeSean Jackson reaches out to Utah WR who dropped ball before scoring
Jackson did the same thing, a mistake that will probably be associated with his name for a long time. When Jackson was a rookie with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008, during a "Monday Night Football" game at Dallas he dropped the ball before he crossed the goal line, negating a sure 61-yard touchdown. It's probably remembered so well because erasing that touchdown provided the most famous bad beat in fantasy football history. Jackson, who is now with the Washington Redskins, admits he had a touchdown dance planned and was a little too excited to get to it.
When Utah's Kaelin Clay made the same mistake, Jackson felt for him. Clay's postgame comments, in which he rightfully took responsibility for the error, were heartbreaking. Instead of Utah going up 14-0, Oregon's touchdown on the return made it 7-7. And how's this for a small-world coincidence: Jackson and Clay both attended Long Beach Poly High School.
According to an NFL Network interview, in the video above, Jackson called Clay's father and relayed words of encouragement and advice. Jackson said he wanted Clay to know not to get down on himself. That's a pretty gracious move.
"It's a bonehead mistake. Hopefully he'll learn from that," Jackson (who actually gave away another touchdown at a high-school all-star game with a premature celebration) said on NFL Network. "I did it one time and you'll never, ever see it again."
It's an embarrassing play, one that most sports fans have seen by now. Hopefully Clay can move on from it and turn it into a positive, like Jackson has.
NFL Cinderellas Start Cracking Their SlippersAlabama Atop First BCS Rankings2013-10-22
Also, in the NFL on Sunday, the Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins, both surprise 3-0 starters this year, dropped "easy" games to crash back down to Earth.
Alabama claimed the inside track on an unprecedented third consecutive Bowl Championship Series championship by topping the first BCS standings of the season, released Sunday night. The Crimson Tides .984 score gave it a generous lead over second-place Florida State at .935.
In a surprise, the Seminoles vaulted over Oregon by a margin of .003 after their 51-14 trouncing of Clemson on Saturday. The Ducks, who rank No. 2 in the Associated Press poll, are third in the BCS standings with a score of .932.
Ohio State is fourth with a score of .855, followed by season surprise Missouri at .822. Rounding out the top 10 are Stanford, Miami, Baylor, Clemson and Texas Tech. Of the top 10 teams, only Stanford and Clemson have losses. Oregon has a tougher remaining schedule than Florida State, so the Ducks can climb into second place if they keep winning.
The BCS rankings are an equal-parts combination of three elements: the USA Today Coaches Poll, Harris Interactive College Football Poll and an average of six computer rankings. The top two teams at the announcement of the final BCS rankings on Dec. 8 will play for the national championship Jan. 6 at the Rose Bowl.
This is the last season of the BCS before major-college football moves to a four-team playoff, with the teams chosen by a selection committee.
Two of the early darlings of the NFL season used Sunday to confirm they arent that good.
The Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins, both surprise 3-0 starters this year, dropped easy games to crash back down to Earth: The Dolphins lost for the third straight game, falling at home to the Bills, 23-21, with Buffalo backup Thad Lewis (above) throwing for 202 yards. And the Chicago Bears lost 45-41 to the previously sputtering Washington Redskins, the Bears third loss in four games.
Elsewhere, Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski gave the team a much-needed offensive boost as he returned from injury on Sunday, but it wasnt enough to avoid dropping a 30-27 thriller to the New York Jets.
Gronkowski, who had multiple surgeries in the off-season, caught eight passes for 114 yards. But Jets quarterback Geno Smiths uneven 233-yard performance was enough to overcome Tom Brady, who threw for 228 yards and no touchdowns. The Dallas Cowboys took control of the NFC East with a 17-3 win over the Philadelphia Eagles to improve to 4-3. Quarterback Tony Romo passed for 317 yards in a game that will likely be remembered as the debut of Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley, who threw for 129 yards and didnt flash much potential.
A.J. Jenkins dealt from 49ers to Chiefs for Jon Baldwin2013-08-20
The 49ers announced Monday that they have traded Jenkins to the Chiefs in exchange for wide receiver Jon Baldwin. This is a rare one-for-one NFL talent swap of players who failed to live up to expectations.
"Feel like it's a fresh start for both young men," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters Monday, "and hopefully it will be a possibility for both of them."
It's amazing how far Jenkins fell in San Francisco since being drafted in 2012. There were open questions about whether Jenkins would even make the 53-man roster. Chad Hall, among others, ran ahead of Jenkins in practice during training camp.
Seeing the Chiefs give up on Baldwin is even more surprising. The third-year pro was a first-round draft pick in 2011 by previous general manager Scott Pioli. Unlike Jenkins, Baldwin at least produced something at the pro level. (He had 579 yards over the last two years.) Earlier in camp, new coach Andy Reid mentioned Baldwin's struggles to catch the football. Baldwin had a bad drop in Kansas City's preseason game against San Francisco on Friday, but that didn't dissuade the 49ers.
It's worth noting that Baldwin's salary is guaranteed in 2013. So the 49ers expect to have him on the roster, where they are desperately searching for someone to take snaps with wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham injured.
The 49ers need a vertical threat, and that's Baldwin's skill set. But let's not make this trade into more than it is. It's a swap of busts, and it would be a surprise if either player made a big impact on his new team.

Ravens vs. Bengals Betting Preview2010-09-17
Kickoff: Sunday, 1:00 p.m. EDT
Sportsbook.com Line: Baltimore -2.5, Total: 40
In NFL Week 1, home dogs covered the point spread in five of the eight games. Additionally, all five of the covers were also outright victories. Can the Bengals keep this tend going?
Two top-notch defenses lock horns in this AFC North clash on Sunday. Both teams allowed just 301 yards per game last year, with the Ravens ranking third in the NFL and the Bengals right behind them in the fourth slot. Baltimore was said to have major holes to fill in its secondary with safety Ed Reed out six weeks and CB Domonique Foxworth out for the season with a torn ACL. But the Ravens defense was dominant Monday night in holding the Jets to 176 yards, including just 60 through the air. The imminent returns of talented CB Lardarius Webb and massive rookie DT Terrence Cody will make this defense even more formidable.
The offense will need to step up its game though. RB Ray Rice was held to 43 yards on 21 carries against an excellent Jets defense, but WR Anquan Boldin had a huge Ravens debut with seven catches for 110 yards. Although heís nursing a thigh injury, Boldin is expected to play Sunday.
The Bengals defensive unit did not play as poorly as the 38 points allowed to New England would indicate, considering the Patriots scored on a kick return and interception return. But Cincy still allowed Tom Brady to throw for 258 passing yards and three scores. Despite the defensive woes, QB Carson Palmer was able to incorporate a slew of players into the offensive act, most notably Chad Ochocinco (12 rec, 159 yds, TD). The Bengals also received nice performances from 2nd-year pro Bernard Scott, rookie WR Jordan Shipley (5 rec, 82 yds) and rookie TE Jermaine Gresham (six catches, TD). Scott gained 50 yards on just nine touches (six rushes, three catches) and could be a big factor on Sunday if RB Cedric Benson (15 rush, 43 yds, lost fumble) isnít fully healed from his shoulder injury. Benson ran wild on the Ravens last season with 237 yards on 61 carries in the two contests.
The Bengals are 7-3 (SU and ATS) against the Ravens since 2005, including two physical wins in 2009. Cincy won 17-14 in Baltimore, then completed the sweep with a 17-7 home victory.
Despite that, a key betting trend found at Sportsbook.com states that there is better value in betting against the Bengals:
Play Against - Home teams where the line is +3 to -3 (CINCINNATI) - off a road loss, in the first month of the season, after closing out last season with 2 or more straight losses.
(41-10 since 1983.) (80.4%, +30 units. Rating = 4*).
