FYI: Eagles players agree with DeSean Jackson

Working the locker room at minicamp it became obvious that several players agree with what later became the incendiary comments  of DeSean Jackson in his interview with the Sporting News.
Jackson told TSN he didn't think the Eagles had "lost anything, even with (Donovan) McNabb being gone."
Unlike Jackson, those Eagles figured their similar thoughts were better left unsaid, as they have to play the traded veteran and the Washington Redskins twice this season.
Moreover some of the Eagles grew weary of McNabb's career-long contradiction that he's been a winner wherever he's been but that the team - not just one guy - is responsible for those crushing losses.
At any rate, all of this is talk. The games will determine just how much the Eagles lost by ditching McNabb.
And though I've suggested on occasion it really was time to turn the page on McNabb, the Eagles aren't going to be scoring points as they did with No. 5 in the saddle. Not initially.000
Kevin Kolb is a natural born leader. He's also a work in progress. And he doesn't make the deep throws McNabb launched so effortlessly.
Kolb's real-time knowledge of the offense is all the Eagles have right now as they've divested themselves of not just McNabb, but running back Brian Westbrook and wide receivers Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown. Those guys knew where to line up. They taught the young guys as much as they could in a limited time.
Jackson is entitled to his opinion. But right now the Eagles have lost something without McNabb. It's the deep ball, baby. Get used to it.

Yea but how many games did they lose with those short in the dirt pass's he's been throwing for the last few years. He stunk up the field in those two Cowboy games...they're still laughing. He's going to do the same thing in Washington..That's why he wanted T.O. in Washington so he could have someone to blame and take pressure of of him.. He's a BUM and he always will be.
