DeSean Jackson is soft and overrated. Same as Maclin.

I'm also in the keep and build round Jackson and McCoy corner, but as I said, it is a difficult question which may be raised in the future.
We have more difficult questions to answer though Marky. That is the point I'm trying to make.

Do we keep Roseman as GM?
Who will be a our HC?
Who will be our QB?
What do we do with the defense?
Can we employ a competent safety duo?
What do we do with the O-line?

Those are bigger issues than "should we build around McCoy and Jackson," IMO.


I was coming onto those

Jackson isn't a true #1 but we require him to act like one, get a WR that is bigger or a true #1 and I think you will see Jackson play better

Ryan Swope
Marquess Wilson

I love Swope he is one of my favorite prospects in the draft but if we sign a FA Olineman and take care of secondary with our first round pick. I would love to have Coradelle with out 2nd round pick.

HOW DARE YOU INSULT SWOPE. THE MAN IS NOT AN AVANT CLONE
and I should have stated Wilson would be like a 6th round pick, I wouldn't touch him due to character concerns with any draft pick of importance

A true #1? What is something that 95% of number ones have that no Eagles receiver ever has.

Size.

Riley Cooper yeah yeah I know, but then again he was never meant to be a number one or even a number two really.

Yeh, bringing in someone who is taller than this season's starting QB would be nice.

Swope is not an "Avant clone". He is faster and better with the ball in his hands. He has the talent to spot start on the outside, but would be best placed in the slot (so he really doesn't come into the conversation as a compliment to Jackson). He does have some of Avant's better qualities though. Good hands, good routes, and the guy can take a hit and hold onto the ball. He also plays with an attitude.

Basically he would be the competition for Avant's job that PE has been crying about and is good enough to be a "#3" instead of a strictly slot guy.

Yep. That and the difference between 1 gap and 2 gap. I know. You are a legend in your own mind.

See, I see the same thing in Swope as in Avant, both purely slot guys. I want my #3 receiver to be able to step up and play on the outside if either of the top 2 receivers are injured.

Swope? I dunno personally. Avant can play on the outside, would he be any good at it, doubt it

He does it now.

Avant has played outside in a few games. I'll just say he's better inside.

A&M uses him quite a lot on the outside.

This play right here is something we would never see Avant do
