Young Eagles hit milestones

Two of the youngest Eagles hit two major milestones yesterday... First, DeSean Jackson became the third WR under Andy Reid to hit the thousand yard mark, the other two being TO and Kevin Curtis. The most amazing thing about that stat is that Jackson got to 1,087 on only 56 catches. To provide some context, Wes Welker currently has 1,198 rec yards on 109 catches. Jackson is averaging nearly 20 yards per catch.

DeSean is also tied for the NFL lead in total TDs for a receiver.

"Honestly, it's a great feeling. I would not have been able to do it without the playcalling and without Donovan," Jackson said of reaching the 1,000-yard mark. "You have to give credit to Kevin (Kolb) and (Michael) Vick. Without those guys, I would not be able to be as successful as possible. I am just trying to do anything and everything I can to help this team for the long haul.

"Our goal is the Super Bowl. We just have to keep playing like this and we will be all right."

LeSean McCoy broke the Eagles rookie rushing record yesterday, a mark previously held by Correll Buckhalter. His 9 carry, 48 yard performance yesterday gave him 606 rushing yards which is the most every by an Eagles RB.

"It's obviously something big for anybody to achieve a record," McCoy said. "I have to give a lot of credit to the offensive linemen and my teammates for helping me out."

Unfortunately, if Jeremy Maclin hadn't gotten hurt he was on pace to break the Eagles rookie receiving record...
