DeSean Jackson has Monster Game in Philadelphia Eagles’ Loss
DeSean Jackson had himself a monster game with 193 receiving yards and a touchdown in a nail biting loss to the San Diego Chargers. In all reality he could have had more. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and Jackson just missed hooking up on two more deep balls that would have had Jackson well over the 200 yard mark and perhaps even close to 300.
Jackson had his second highest career number of receiving yards on the day. He abused Chargers cornerback Shareece Wright all game long and seemed to get open deep at will. He even had a long touchdown called back due to a penalty on the offensive line on a day where he could have seen his yardage total rise even higher.
Jackson is simply thriving in Chip Kelly‘s offense. He is producing at a clip he never did in the Andy Reid era and his rapport with Vick is right in sync.
Both Jackson and LeSean McCoy right now are at the top of the league in terms of receiving yards and rushing yards respectively as this offense has totaled 63 points in two games.
There isn’t much more the offense can do at this point. The defense really needs to step up its game as it would be a shame to see the talents of Vick, Jackson, and McCoy wasted in a losing season.
The combination of Vick, McCoy, and Jackson is as dangerous and explosive a trio as there is in the league. They will continue to give defenses nightmares throughout the year.
