Still haven't gotten over that crushing loss. desean jackson has been in the media everywhere talking about his great punt return on fox sports, espn, nfl network, eagles post game press conference etc etc. what i find funny is that he (And even vick said it) was getting doubled teamed a lot which causes him to not get the big play
I just find it funny, that's an excuse. Corey Webster shut him down when he lined up at his side. He even had a pick (although vick threw across his body and made a stupid decision). I'm not one of those guys who's going to type an essay and give a play-by-play breakdown on why jackson wasn't double covered most of the game because I am truly lazy, but I re-watched the game and I noticed that we locked up desean jackson man-on-man against corey webster for practically most of the day. Aside from 1 comeback route for 8 yards, jackson was shut down by webster. his other 2 catches (i believe) came against zone coverage.
Will Webster ever get credit for being one of the best man-to-man CBs in the NFL? I have no idea why defenses dont play jackson the way webster did last sunday. there's a reason why jackson fell to the second round, because he's undersized and scouts believed he would not get off a jam against bigger corners in the nfl. for some reason, people would prefer to play off coverage against jackson and HE still runs by that coverage.
