WR Jackson Thinking Bigger Things in 2009

DeSean Jackson had a solid first year for the Eagles, and the wide out is thinking even bigger things for 2009. The following on Jackson from the Philadelphia Daily News

During his rookie campaign, Jackson played in 19 games, including the postseason, racking up 1,119 receiving yards and three touchdowns, while also returning punts. He set a new Eagles rookie record for receiving yards and total receptions, becoming the first rookie to lead the team in receptions since Keith Jackson in 1988. “The first two games of the season, when I posted back-to-back 100-yard receiving games, I’d have to say that was the defining moment of my rookie year,” he said. “Next season, I’d like more than 1,000 yards receiving, more than 60 catches, more than 10 touchdowns.”

  1. […] Jackson finished the year with 62 receptions for 912 yards and two touchdowns.  More importantly, Jackson was the most consistent threat the Eagles had at the WR possession and the only one the opposing team had to gameplan […]

    D Jax really impressed me this season…especially with him being a rookie and all. I think he will do what he said and eclipse what he did this season….I mean he came right in and basically took Reggie Brown’s spot as a starter. I expect great things from this young player in the years to come! Go Eagles!!!!!
