Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

... I also don't understand this reason against signing DeSean Jackson: the Redskins had bigger holes to fill.

First, there's not any current free agent of any worth that you could compare to the impact of Jackson for the Redskins, whether it was at free safety or not.

Second, at the time of Jackson's release - however the Redskins handled free agency up to that point doesn't preclude signing Jackson. What I mean by this is - just because we didn't sign Darius Byrd or anyone else who we lost out on - it doesn't mean that by default the Redskins lost (in free agency) and should give up on trying to make the team better.

Third, I would argue that signing Jackson, would allow for more opporturnity to fill the "bigger" holes through the draft because there should be no reason to look at drafting a wide receiver. I would consider in a way that this recoups our first round draft pick that was lost to the Rams (somewhat more expensive, but still).

All I keep thinking is Play-Action Pass, Deep.
Our read option should be improved as well with the extra speed.

We might be on the verge of something very exciting.

Couldnt agree more. This should allow us to really focus on oline and secondary help in the draft. Simply a wr was not really on my wishlist, because between Garcon, Reed, and Roberts I thought we could atleast be a good offense and we had other holes to fill (lol). However the dynamic of Jacksons game just makes this offense brutally tough to match up with. Who do you double team? Do you dare play off the line and allow Almo and RG-3 to run it down your throat? The only worry I have, and I think others have but dont want to admit - is - which RG-3 are we going to get? Was last years poor passing due to injury, gameplanning, etc or was it due to he is not a great passing qb? Sometimes last year it just seemed he was missing so bad. As always this season will hinge on the play of our qb. Personally I think that he will be electrifying through the air and on the ground. Or atleast I hope so. HTTR!

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Someone mentioned earlier about Jordan Reed benefiting from this.
Picture Jackson and Garcon running fly routes with Reed coming across the middle and or underneath.....
Profit!

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

I think jackson was quoted as saying he wanted number 10, and maybe RG3 would switch his number to 3........I know I read that somewhere.......

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Right or wrong, Chip Kelly probably thought Jackson became more expendable with the signing of Sproles. Remember, Sproles also lines up out wide.

lol, sproles and maclin combined don't equal half the talent of desean jackson. Its laughable if they think they will use sproles or maclin to make up for his ridiculous production. Look for the Eagles to drop in offensive rankings bigtime this year.

Hope you're right. I hate to admit it, but I think Sproles is a great player though.

Just to be clear I wasnt saying the Eagles fleeced us unless.........they are so diabolically clever that they knew by releasing him the skins would pick him up and the cancer they think he is would spread thru our team like wildfire and implode us from within

It just seems too damn good to be true that we could get this lucky to pick up a talent like him for nothing,like maybe he's the Eagles trojan horse

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

The media is giving the eagles organization too much credit for how they operate. They did well with hiring Chip Kelly, but it looks like he's believing that his way is better than everyone else's. But before him, the eagles organization was on a down trend. Remember Asomougha? And remember the eagles the last couple of seasons with Reid? That's why Reid got fired.

Eagles - one of the model organizations? I don't think so.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Here is the article about desean talking about RG3 possibly switching to number 3, even going so far as to say they have already talked about it...........wonder how much it'll cost him?
