Yo, Deion ... give Eagles their props

Deion Sanders doesn't seem  to like the Eagles.
A couple of weeks ago Sanders called Pro Bowl defender Asante Samuel the best "off corner" in football. It was such an underhanded compliment , the NFL's interception leader called Sanders a "hater."
This past weekend Sanders implied Eagles Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson should have been tackled before he turned upfield on his 91-yard TD catch-and-run.
Sanders, who always took risks playing corner, says Michael Jenkins was wrong trying to jump the route of Jackson and instead should have gone conservative.
''As a cornerback, you never risk a play of this magnitude at this time of the game," Sanders said. "Tight game, make the sure tackle. You know you're not going to get the pick; make the play."
Sanders obviously isn't paying close enough attention because Jackson has been doing this for two years now. Sanders in his prime would have been left in Jackson's vapor trail, just like those five Cowboys defenders Sunday, including such burners as Orlando Scandrick.
