    DeSean Jackson- contract year, probably not staying in Philly, under achieving, wants to go to a winning team. He is a returner so if we got him we could lose Jacoby, though Jacoby has better character as a person.

    The only obstacle is that Drew Rosenhaus is his agent. He is gonna try to get him the most money he can, and that will probably come from a team in more desperate need of a big play receiver.

    Even so, he is everything we hoped Jacoby would be as our #2 wr that he didnt live up to. It is a long shot but I think he would be the best pick up we could legitimately hope for in the offseason to upgrade that spot.


    On a side note I would like to say I really think Yates has what it takes to play well enough to at least just get us into the playoffs. Beyond that who knows. But if he does do well and he turns into the gunslinger I think he could be then I would like to be the first to coin the name "Crazy Yates" or "Crazy Y8s" as I saw someone type it earlier.

    Either way here's to the best season in franchise history :toast2:

    A me first player who lacks work ethic? I don't know.

    He is definitely a game breaker when his head is screwed on straight.

    The problem is that isn't often.

    Although I know around zero about college football, I keep hearing this is a very deep WR class coming up. Think we could find one in the draft instead?

    As much as I respect Desean's playmaking ability I don't want him on the Texans. I'd be pretty concerned about him really working hard after he gets big money after what I've seen from him this year. Pass....... I'd rather look in the draft at a Michael Floyd for our #2 receiver.

    He needs a QB with a strong arm - he lacks the mentality and will want to much money. No way he is gonna be a Texan. And I really think he wants to be a #1WR.

    That is a good point. No QB on our roster (idk about Delhome lol) can bomb it down the field like Vince was the other night to take full advantage of his speed.

    Although we have seen it happen, I still do not understand how signing that big contact kills some guys work ethic and motivation. It just baffles me, but it happens and could to Jackson too.

    He is too small and too much of a diva.

    Schaub can't throw the long ball. There's no point.
    I don't hate Schaub, I love him. But it's the truth. We need a big guy who can make the catch in traffic. He doesn't fit here.

    Selfish, me first guy who's all about the $$$$.

    Winning is somewhere down the list of his priorities.

    Jackson knows 1 route - the go route. Sure he takes some defenders with him, but he hardly helps out on short stuff and cancels those few times out with some costly drops. He is pretty overrated.

    I don't want a guy who has to go to his OBGYN every time he's asked to go across the middle.

    No thanks.

    Our success this season stems from a team first attitude that he does not posses.

    No doubt he can make big plays, but with JJ signing an extension this past off-season I don't see it happening. Not that Jacoby is in the same class of DeSean, but he fills the same needs for less money and less headache, i'll pass.

    I would like Alshon Jeffery or Michael Floyd to come in and learn from one of the greatest of all time and eventually be a replacement. I haven't been paying too much attention to college football this year, but know those two guys have potential although Floyd has some character issues. Justin Blackmon would be amazing, but he is going in the top 10.

    No thanks to MeSean though, it is a sexy Madden type signing, but not a good fit.

    I'll take Jeff Fuller over him a million times over.
