On the same night Terrell Owens moved into second place in NFL history with 132 career receiving touchdowns, he offered some words of wisdom for a youngster who is trying to establish himself as a touchdown-maker himself.
Eagles rookie reciever DeSean Jackson had a TD in the bag in the second quarter when he caught a 62-yard scoring pass from Donovan McNabb. But replays showed that Jackson, in an apparent act of ignorance, flippantly flipped the ball behind his back a few inches before he actually crossed the goal line for the score.
Owens' advice for Jackson for his TD celebrations?
"Score first," Owens said.
Sometimes the most brilliant words are the most obvious.
