They're pretty similar aren't they? Not sure it's the best pairing I could think of. Especially for a running team.

They are "similar". But can you imagine trying to contain both of them? Eagles fans were excited about an offense with him, McCoy, Maclin, and Sproles. Now we know that the Sproles signing was about trying to replace some of his production.

I get why broncos fans are concerned about seattle, but the odds of us meeting them again in the super bowl are slim to none. I dont really give a **** what they do.

Well, they're going to compete for the NFC title again this year. They're too young and too good to just fade away. You have to care just a little bit. Them and the Niners are clear NFC favorites.

I dunno. They both seem kinda soft in their own ways. Harvin can't stay on the field. Jackson only really plays when he feels like it. Neither of them are going to win a physical matchup. And I'm not sure Wilson's the guy you want for that style of offense anyway. Tate was Wilson's go-to. I'm not sure DJ is much of a fill-in for that role.

Well clearly they don't play Calvin Johnson/Demaryius Thomas style of football. But assuming you watched the Super Bowl you see what that type of speed can do to a defense.

Clearly Jackson is too good to just be outright released without something else going on. My die-hard friend who is an Eagles fan was not unhappy about the news - saying that Jackson isn't reliable outside of the big play.

Here is more info on maybe why the Eagles let him go:

Now the Eagles have even more serious concerns -- Jackson's continued association with reputed Los Angeles street gang members who have been connected to two homicides since 2010

and

Crosson said, however, the Jackson routinely flashes Crip gang signs in photos on social media -- and even on television during an NFL game.

I agree only because it's been over 20 years since the same two teams have faced each other in the Super Bowl two years in a row.

''...I would like to address the misleading and unfounded reports that my release has anything to do with any affiliation that has been speculated surrounding the company I keep off of the field. I would like to make it very clear that I am not and never have been part of any gang. I am not a gang member and to speculate and assume that I am involved in such activity off the field is reckless and irresponsible.

I work very hard on and off the field and I am a good person with good values. I am proud of the accomplishments that I have made both on and off the field. I have worked tirelessly to give back to my community and have a positive impact on those in need. It is unfortunate that I now have to defend myself and my intentions. These reports are irresponsible and just not true . I look forward to working hard for my new team. God Bless.

Its unclear how much the gang connection (if there is one) played in the decision to cut Jackson. Per the report, the team also was concerned about his bad attitude, an inconsistent work ethic, missed meetings and a lack of chemistry with head coach Chip Kelly.

I bet the bolded factor is by far the largest.

But the first 3 are the leading factors into why the chemistry is bad.
So it's a combination of things that led to the disconnect.

Whether I watched the whole game or not is still in question. I was drunk enough by halftime that I like to think I just passed out. But I won't completely rule out the possibility of post-traumatic blockout.

Anyway, I'm not saying the speed isn't valuable, but there's a reason most teams only have one of those guys. They're home-run hitters. More often though, you only need a 2-out single.

And maybe with a spread-out deep ball master like Brees it would still work well. I just don't think it fits Cheaty Petey's offensive philosophy or his QB all that well.

I don't want to see him go to kFc or the Pat's. I hope he goes to Oakland and eats up a large portion of their cap.

I'd hate to see him in NE because he gives Brady a different dimension. Kinda like the Moss year. KC wouldn't worry me AS much because I don't think Smith has the tools to make the most out of Jackson.

But you're right. He seems like he was almost born to be a Raidah.

Smith isn't very accurate deep but Jackson could run those drag routes Reid loves to run over and over and over and over and pick up mucho YAC.

Plus he catches better than mCcluster which makes Smith better when he does actually hit someone deep not to have the ball dropped.

I think this has been posted elsewhere, but how does Desean Jackson just get cut outright?

Something's definitely missing.
