Week three in the NFL season is probably already marked on every Philadelphia Eagles Fan’s calendar. If not, you were probably out of the country or off-planet somewhere. September 21st former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson returns to Lincoln Financial Field.
In a recent interview with NFL Media’s Dan Hellie Jackson spoke about his return to Philadelphia. In the past he’s tried to play it down but not any longer.
Regardless if it is versus the Eagles in Week 3, that is highlighted, that is circled on the calendar. But any time I go on the field, any game I ever play in the NFL … any time I strap it up and play, I’m ready to turn on versus anybody. But that game will be highlighted and I can’t wait to get it on versus whoever we play against. But for sure, that game you already know I’m ready to turn it up.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach may not admit it but you know he’s focused on that game. He needs to shut Jackson down. If there is any any time the Eagles’ defense needs to step up it will be that week. The Eagles can’t let Jackson show them up. I am sure Kelly feels the same way.
