About Desean Jackson

Desean Jackson gets flak for a lot of things: his supposed arrogance, fragility issues, not playing up to his full ability, unwillingness to go across middle...

I was watching the 2009 NFC Championship Game - you know, when McNabb had a 2.2 Passer rating in the first half - and wow: Desean Jackson looks like a much different player. In the first quarter, McNabb tried fitting in a pass into triple coverage, and it got intercepted. Desean Jackson comes back, chases the ball-carrier down and causes a fumble to give it back to the Eagles.

After watching that play, I made sure to look for Desean Jackson at every opportunity I could - he was going all-out: dishing out blocks for Kevin Curtis, running post routes and just generally doing what you want your all-around receiver to do. 

My conclusion is that in the past two years the Eagles coaching staff has made him conform into the home-run threat so he doesn't have the same mentality that he had as a rookie. Back then, he wanted to win, and now it just feels like he's trying to make the weekly SportsCenter highlights. Of course, some of this is probably because of his insanely stupid contract. Of course you can't blame this on the Eagles staff it's really because of the old CBA (?) which overpays 1st rounders and underpays 2nd rounders when history has shown they have nearly identical success rates.

Just my thoughts on D-Jack.
