DeSean Jackson: Eagles aren't missing Donovan McNabb

Donovan McNabb is gone, but DeSean Jackson hasn't noticed much of a change in the Philadelphia Eagles. He said as much in May, drawing attention for his remarks then, and he reiterated as much Wednesday.

The latest comment? He told that he doesn't think the team, which traded McNabb to the Redskins in April, has missed a beat in its transition to Kevin Kolb.

"We haven't lost a step since he's come in and become the man," said Jackson. "The offense is still the same. The only difference is we have a new quarterback. Everything is still the same."

Jackson has caught six passes for 121 yards in preseason games.

"I think we've been through a lot of ups and downs, with having a new quarterback," said Jackson. "Now that it's late August and we're close to the regular season, I think we're putting everything [behind] us and we're moving forward. We have come a long ways, Kevin has done a lot of studying, and he's taken a role that is very tough. But at the end of the day, I think he's capable of doing it."

And now you know why he avoids the media. You posted the title as if he said that. Why would you reference an article posted by phillysportsdaily then reword his entire quote to make it look like he said something he didn't. All he said was that he supports Kolb. You should post something more news worthy like the number of times McNabb has thrown dirtballs so far this preseason for Washington.

"McNabb had an erratic night for the Redskins (1-1), completing 11 of 26 passes for 206 yards and a bad-decision interception thrown deep into double coverage. He frequently threw behind receivers and was often pressured and hit by a blitzing Ravens defense." -- Courtesy of SSI - Now that's some real sports analysis.

Completely agree with cin1!

This is a terrible piece of "Reporting". What you just did was slapped your own title on (Misguided to boot) and then wrote your own little paragraph.


Simple... You didn't have anything else to write about. If the Washington Post has any sense of journalistic integrity, please removed this "Piece" at once!

Completely DISAGREE with cin1. First, the title of the post wasn't in quotation marks, so no one should have assumed that Jackson said it word-for-word. Second, Redskins' receivers dropped SIX passes in the first half. If those six had been caught, McNabb would have gone 17 for 26 (a 65% completion average) for close to 300 yards and a TD IN THE FIRST HALF. In what alternate reality does that constitute an erratic half? Yes, he did throw one pick, and it should have been two. Yes, he did miss some guys, both those things are going to happen when you throw the ball a lot. And yes, he was under pressure, which made what he did all the more impressive.

BREAKING NEWS, RUFUS_T_FIREFLY: Inaccurate throws by McNabb lead to six dropped passes in an erratic showing of what should have been 2+ interceptions.

Anyone think I should send my resume to Washingtonpost?
