D-Jax says Steve Smith is Jeremy Maclin insurance

DeSean Jackson is finally back at training camp, practicing with the Heat Eagles.

And, according to reports out of Bethlehem, he's impressing people with early production in practice, having already torched Asante Samuel twice for a pair of long touchdowns.

He's also chatting about Jeremy Maclin and the Eagles recent addition of former rival wideout Steve Smith, which Jackson says is basically Maclin insurance.

"The reason why they picked him up is they're unsure of Maclin's health," Jackson said Saturday, per Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.

So that should thrill the front office. I mean, we knew that, kind of. I think. Right? Right.

See, Andy Reid made it clear when he signed Smith that it had nothing to do with the state of Maclin's health, which lies somewhere between "mysterious" and "absolutely unknown."

But Maclin's illness has to be the reason the Eagles signed Smith.

Or maybe the Eagles were just thinking along the same lines of Michael Vick when he said that you can "never have enough weapons."

Not a Cowboys fan but ask them how it feels to be picked to win.  Only in years when they are not picked,they do well.  So based on this logic I will say Vick gets hurt and Young is a .500 QB at best. So the divisional finals will be as follows; Dallas (10-6), NY Giants (10-6), Philly (8-8), Washington (4-12). The media always picks a team and runs with them and never take the favorite as this sport I believe is partly controlled by Vegas.  Just my opinion.  Look at the Madden cover curse, it goes all the way back to Priest Holmes.  Hmmm.  More than just a cooincidence don't you think?  Think about it.  Where would we be without our Monday morning watercooler talk? If you had a multibillion dollar product ,wouldn't you want to control your investment? The media is in on it too.  It's the biggest secret going these days.  The government is in on it to.  Have you ever wonder why you never get all the football weekly picks right?  Not because you're not smart, because they throw in these few upsets to throw off your pool.  Once again,just my opinion.  Open your eyes people.  The gov controls everything we watch on TV.  Why wouldn't they control football?  Not a conspiracy theorist, just a realist that calls it as he sees it.  It's all in the Zebras hands.  (Refs) I'll hang up and listen,lol.

Yea, Philly isn't the Heat, because in Miami, fans don't care, where as in Philly, fans are raging lunatics who run great players out of town if they can't deliver championship after championship year in and year out. Complete opposites.

So you think that the eagles are the heat.?.  so i guess that means you think they will make it to the superbowl and lose.  And i am assuming you will call that a choke, or a let down, or something like that.  That could only lead me to believe that YOU, in your "expert" opinion think the eagles should win the Superbowl!  Now I feel so much better.

I find it funny that the Eagles are compared to the Heat. The Heat are three great players and a bunch of scrubs. The Eagles are stacked from top to bottom.
