DeSean Jackson, Jahvid Best, Charlie Garner Own Some Of Football's Greatest Jukes

New, 1 comment

Two California Golden Bears and one Oakland Raider (well, Bo Jackson and Marcus Allen were on this list a few times, but they were technically in LA at the time) made Complex.com's 50 Greatest Juke Moments In Football History list. Care to guess which runs they chose? Check them out after the jump!

DeSean Jackson was ninth overall on this list with his "R1 video game" move against Tennessee, as it was dubbed by Kirk Herbstreit.

Jahvid Best finished one step above him with "a solid step one way and go the other" move in his epic 311 yard performance in three quarters against Washington (see it at 1:54 in this video)

Of course, we all have personal taste, and I prefer Best's epic 93 yard rush against UCLA (one of the greatest runs I think I've ever seen), ending with him juking Alterraun Verner out of his shoes.

But Charlie Garner probably tops them all. He finishes second on the list with TWO jukes in one play, a spin on another, and finishes it off with a stiffarm for good measure. A worthy juke to top all Bay Area football jukes.

Do you agree with this list? Or do you have more jukes to add to the Bay Area's greatest?
