Desean Jackson

Height is not everything.
DeSean Jackson caught six passes for 178 yards, including a 60-yard TD in the third quarter. He also returned a punt 72 yards for a score in the second quarter.
Jackson, who finished with 261 all-purpose yards, now has eight TDs of 50 yards or more this season, tying an all time NFL record shared by only Elroy Hirsch and Devin Hester. This is a pretty rare record being tied. With three games left he has a good chance to break the record.
For a guy that was too short for the redskins to draft, he has turned out pretty good...for a short guy.

Re: Desean Jackson

Desean is a playmaking monster and I'd love to have him on our team. However, I understand why we went with Thomas, Kelly and Davis. We had very small wideouts and needed a reliable, big target for Campbell.

Re: Desean Jackson

He also had some character issues that scared some teams off.

Look, he's a great player no doubt, but it's looking more and more like Thomas, Davis, and Kelly are going to be key players for us in the future. I'm really done with crying over who we didn't take. There are plenty of other teams who now in hindsight wish they would have taken Jackson.

Re: Desean Jackson

Along as he can avoid injury, he is going to be very good for a very long time, top 3 offensive threat on the field right now. I saw last week people protecting Vinny picks saying he does a decent job...in the last 10 years we have had less draft picks than everybody else cause we give them away and we constantly b*tch this year about Carlos and Laron two first rounders by Vinny, and we dont draft any O lineman and that is our biggest issue area on the team the last 3 years...I just dont get it...People say you draft the best player availible...they dont say draft the tallest player availible...for a team that desperately needed a WR and also a playmaker in general, this was another fail by Vinny. I think DT can be good, but not the big play guy Desean already is

Re: Desean Jackson

Yea, lot's of teams passed on Jackson. His punt return for a TD last night was amazing though. Unbelievable.

I'm liking Davis and Thomas/Kelly.

Who was the last player the Skins have drafted that was an explosive/highlight reel player? I can't remember....Cooley's great, but not necessarily explosive. Gary Clark played in the Canadian league first right? Damn...still thinking.

Clark came over from the USFL along with Ricky Sanders.

Re: Desean Jackson

Where are the threads about some of the other WRs a bunch of us were clamoring for back in 2008-James Hardy, Limas Sweed, Dexter Jackson-just to name a few?

Jordy Nelson...

It appears to not have been a sound strategy to grab multiple receivers high in that draft, but it looks like we at least pulled the status quo if you were grabbing them out of the hat. That's an improvement.

Yeah, he's a monster, no doubt, but we needed the WRs.

Re: Desean Jackson

Jackson gets so wide open, it looks like his small size makes him almost invisible to D-backs. It's like they forget that he's there.

Yeah, height with wideouts isn't everything. The Rams' 'Greatest Show on Turf' didn't have any wideouts over 6'0" tall.

All depends on what you're trying to do. There have been tall receivers who weren't known for great speed that have thrived, there have been short guys that have done well throughout the league's history. While our offense is still a work in progress, I can't say that we've seen much of an advantage with our taller wideouts as of yet. In fact, the jump balls in the endzone haven't been a facet of our scheme either.

Already got a concussion from the Fletcher hit, which by the way was awesome!! Can't stand Jackson, he's a punk!!

Re: Desean Jackson

I know he brought me back from the dead in a fantasy league last night.

That punt return was absolutely disgusting. To see guys like that returning punts and then have to watch Randall Fail back there really ticks me off.
