Sunday’s game with Dallas is going to be a match up where both teams are forced to play their hearts out. There is too much at stake for both teams not to give it their best effort. The Eagles are a hot football team winning six games in a row. Dallas is happy that they have won two games in December (cool huh?). I keep hearing ESPN analysts saying that Dallas is playing some of the best football right now and maybe they are. However, I don’t think they’ve played well enough to start opening their mouths. Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins has done just that. He was asked about covering DeSean Jackson this weekend and said the following:
“We’re just playing the deep balls. The main thing is they try to catch you off-guard. It’s yet to happen to us, and we’re not planning on it to happen. I guess he runs past a lot of guys, and it’s not going to happen this week. It’s not going to happen to us, period.”
Well if this doesn’t fire up DeSean Jackson, I sure as hell don’t know what will. Thank you Mike Jenkins. You know Jackson is the type of guy that loves this kind of attention and seems to shine when the pressure is really on. He found the end zone last week but failed to really make the big play he’s known for. A lot of teams have been providing safety help over the top on him but some how he tends to always get behind everyone. Jackson reads secondaries very well and always seems to find holes to get himself open, and after he gets the ball in his hands we all know what he’s capable of. Does DeSean get another 50+ yard touchdown on Sunday? I like his odds.
