DeSean Jackson finally had his surgery yesterday, now we have to wait six to eight weeks for his recovery. Who should we blame for this? Should we blame the doctors? Should we blame Doug Pederson? Should we blame DeSean Jackson?
Clearly the doctors and Jackson had a hand in this, but what will this mean for the Eagles offense. They don’t have a deep threat, but they have two outstanding tight ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. They have a very good pass receiver in rookie running back Miles Sanders, but the wide receivers aren’t giving us enough.
We need more out of Alshon Jeffery, who dropped three passes in the game and Nelson Agholor, who caught the ball in the Bears game, but didn’t do much in the way of production.
The Birds, who are looking for more production from the wide receiver position, gave retired wide receiver Torry Smith a call and they’re working out former Eagles wide receiver and close friend of Carson Wentz, Jordan Matthews this week.
Should they sign Antonio Brown? Should they sign a guy who wasn’t able to make it in New England despite the fact that they need receiver help just like the Eagles? Should they bring a disruptive player like Brown onto the team?
I would definitely bring him in a talk to him. I would want to find out if he realizes his career is on its last leg. If he doesn’t straighten up now, his career will be over. He’s so good that it’s worth the time to bring him in for a meeting. If he starts “Tripping”, then you get rid of him.
He could have had the surgery seven weeks ago and now be back to full strength. Instead he waited, the Eagles waited, the doctors waited and the trainers waited for DeSean’s injury to improve. Then after only one catch on a five yard route, DeSean took himself out of the game.
I talk about all of that on my “G. Cobb Birds Report” podcast. You can check it out right here. http://bit.ly/g-cobb-birds-report-14
