A few months ago I got into several debates with a couple of Eagle fans regarding one Desean Jackson. You know the dude....10 catches 153 yards 1 TD IN 3 GAMES!!! I know Jackson doesn't play defense and he is only one player blah, blah, blah, blah. Jackson has dropped 3 SURE TD passes and 6 passes overall at critical times in the last 3 games. Yet some of you want to pay him like the top 5 WR's in the game. Let's take a look at the competition.....
Fitzgerald: 15 catches 259 yards 2 TD
A. Johnson: 21 catches 316 yards 2 TD
C. Johnson: 16 catches 225 yards 6 TD
S. Smith: 16 catches 349 yards 2 TD
J. Maclin: 19 catches 260 yards 2 TD
Oh, I remember Jackson is a YPC man right,he has a YPC of 15.3.
Yes, I am picking on Jackson. Here he is in a contract year and he is giving a Houdini impersonation. Yes the playcalling has been bad but Jackson is still not getting open and when he does it's 50-50 if he will make the catch. My case has been made so far this season. Now let's hope we can get a win against the 49ers
so I won'thave to make a trip to Philly and choke a certain fat dude with an Eagles
shirt on. And by the way, Mike Wallace
(you know the Pitt WR that will be a FA after the season) The one I said was bigger, just as fast, surer hands, and just plain better than Jackson.....21 catches 377 yards 2 TD 18.0 YPC just had to put that out there....
