WR Jackson Dealing With Not Getting the Ball as Much

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has to deal right now with not getting the ball as much – but he says that he’s dealing with it as best he can:

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, on his ESPN-AM (950) radio show last night, admitted it’s not easy to go from favorite target to the forgotten one, but he didn’t have one of those diva fits that some NFL wide receivers have been well known for. “We won the game and that’s all that matters,” Jackson said. “You’re going to have great games and games where you don’t do too much.” With the exception of Terrell Owens’ only full season with the Eagles, it has often been difficult to differentiate between the No. 1 and No. 2 receivers on the roster, but that seemed to change last season because Jackson was clearly better than any other receiver on the roster. He seemed to cement that role in Weeks 2 and 3 this season by catching 10 passes for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns. But in Sunday’s rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jackson was a nonfactor, catching one pass from Michael Vick for 1 yard long after the outcome had been decided.

    We probably have the best tandem of wide receivers that we have had in years. The team is young, I believe an average age 0f 24.7 years. Both Jackson and Maclin will each get the ball plenty.

    Yeah, the non-factor was pulling the coverage his way which opened things up for our young X WR. Credit to Maclin for making the most of that opportunity – silly how some of these guys act like Desean did nothing but get shutout…
