Maclin Making Jackson Easy to Forget
Over the course of the offseason the question was a simple one for the Eagles: How do you replace DeSean Jackson’s production?
In the 2013 season Jackson had a career year with 82 catches for 1332 yards and 9 TD’s. He might have cured cancer and found the Lindbergh baby too for all I know–there was quite an uproar when he was cut and rule of thumb is that you can’t cut game-breaking, baby-saving talent like that. Meanwhile, Jeremy Maclin was a forgotten man as he recovered from a torn ACL during the madly scientific success of 2013. He was also Jackson’s perfect replacement.
Again, the question was always “how do we replace Jackson’s production” not “how do we replace that qualities that Jackson has?”
