Jackson Delights

     DeSean Jackson is certainly making a good first impression on Andy Reid and the rest of the Eagles' coaches.  The Eagles' beat the Tom Brady-less Patriots 27-17 last night and the star (and surprise) of the game was Jackson.  The Eagles' rookie receiver returned a punt 77 yards for a score.  

     Don't tell DeSean Jackson that he's only going to make a impact on the Eagles as a returner this season.  The man's also a fine receiver.  He caught four passes for 67 yards and he only played half the game.  Jackson was just blowing past the Patriots first team defense with blinding speed.

     I have high expectations for Jackson.  But then again, so do most Eagles fans.  Jackson looks like he can be a great return man.  Critics say Jackson is too small to become a real impact receiver (Jackson's listed at 6-0 but he is about two-to-three inches smaller that that.)  You know what I say to that: Watch the man run.  Jackson won't need to make catches over defensive backs, because he'll be able to get open on his own.
