Brent over at Eagles Rewind, a good new site, offers up some thoughts on why DeSean Jackson might have a tough time fitting in the new offense. Brent isn’t a Jackson basher. He’s simply talking about fit.
I’ve long been a big Jackson fan. I think he’s underrated as an all-around receiver and wasn’t used well by the previous scheme. His straight-line speed is among the best in the league, and used properly, he should open the entire field up by forcing safety coverage deep. However, it wouldn’t surprise me if he makes a less successful transition than I hope and others expect.
