We've been talking about this Maclin vs Jackson discussion most of the season and it appears that on the same day a few guys in the local media decided to weigh in...

John Smallwood: Maclin quietly enjoying big season for Eagles | Philadelphia Daily News | 12/24/2010
JEREMY MACLIN isn't the type of receiver who feels an obsessive compulsion to draw attention to himself. He's not going to perform an excessive celebration after a touchdown. He's not going to talk about himself in the third person. He's not going to label himself as dynamic or display the "Diva Routine" that has become the identity of many top receivers in today's NFL. Maclin just goes out each week and does his job for the Philadelphia Eagles. And quietly, almost under the radar, Maclin has been pretty damn good at it.

D.C. Sports Bog - Jurgensen: McNabb didn't practice 100 percent
"He wasn't performing, and at practice, he'd never practice hard, and I think that had some bearing on it also," Jurgensen said. "Because Shanahan's a stickler for practice, working hard in practice so that you carry that over into the game. And he never could get him to go 100 percent in practice, and that's what he wanted. You talk to people in Philadelphia, and they say why didn't you see this coming, why are you surprised. Because the Eagles had seen it, and they traded him within the division. And so why are the people in Washington surprised?"
