I don’t often say this, but Garry Cobb penned a pretty interesting piece earlier this week.
“The reason I believe the Birds can and will hang onto Jackson is because of his important to quarterback Michael Vick,” Cobb wrote. “The Eagles future is tied to Vick especially in the 2012 season.”
Cobb goes on to suggest that adapting to new targets and eliminating the double teams Jackson consistently draws would put Vick at a severe disadvantage heading into what, by all accounts, appears to be a make-or-break year for both he and head coach Andy Reid.
And I tend to agree.
