L. Jackson story


Tommy-the-Greek

Recommended Posts

I liked seeing him and his four sacks in the backfield against the 49ers, but he's too light in the butt. He'll be a liability against the run. He's only useful in obvious passing situations, and isn't that when Bruce is supposed to be in?

Still, if he can contribute on special teams, I'd keep him around to see if he can put on a few pounds so he doesn't get humiliated by some 350 lb. run-blocker.

the best thing I read in that article was Samuels' comments that Jackson has more strength at 6'3 and 260 than he anticipated.

we all now Jackson is raw and likely to be in the role of a designated rusher for awhile but it is nice to see that if he sticks around he might just have the upside to develop into an everydown player down the road.

No way. On third and long, put Bruce and Lavar at DE and let Big Daddy and Gardener or Wynn clog up the middle.

I see Jackson as providing a little insurance in case Bruce's knees don't make it through another season, but there's no way Bruce will rotate out on third-and-long when he's chasing the record.

Have we seen Jackson on special teams yet? He's supposed to be fast -- I'd like to see him smacking somebody on kick coverage.

According to Lewis, Jackson is one of the biggest surprises in camp this year. He is all over the field and has even played in some coverages. I think he'll stick and surprise some people. I would love to see a few surprises coming out of our younger players, better depth is always great.

HTTR!!!

Jackson's a poor man's LT. Instead of being a LB, though he rushes with the LT intensity. His speed, with 260LBS will always be a problem. What he also brings is things that can't be taught, but are felt! His techniques will improve. It's not necessary to bulk him up, because he causes more pains in the a** being in opponent's backfields, taking down RB's in the flat, destroying screens, and tricking TE's.

Reminds me of a guy we had named N.D. Kalu...Pass Rush specialist! :thumbsup:

Now he is in the "city of brotherly shove" :doh:
