Quick, when asked to compare Jackson to an Eagles WR of the past, who is the first person that comes to mind? Anyone else say Terrell Owens. Yes I fully understand that it was one game against a suspect Rams secondary. And yes T.O. is a future Hall of Famer. But the hype that surrounds Jackson and the confidence and cockiness of Jackson equals T.O.
And how great is it that the two are on the field together next Monday night. In case you were wondering, below find the stats for the first games each player had with the Eagles...
- Owens: 8 catches, 68 yards, 3 TDs: A 31-7 win over the NY Giants
- Jackson: 6 catches, 106 yards, 0 TDs, 97 punt return yards: A 38-3 win over the Rams
