Is DeSean Jackson The Best Wide Receiver In NFC East?


DC Pro Sports Report says Philadelphia Eagles sophmore wide receiver DeSean Jackson is the best in the NFC East.

Really?

I agree that the position is not the strongest one in the division. Certainly there are a number of very good running backs. But the best all around catcher has to go to Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten. He may not be a wide receiver but he’s the best in the NFC East at catching the ball and getting yards after the catch.

I will also argue that Santana Moss is better, albeit slightly, than Jackson.

What DC Sports Report reveals is that the NFC East no longer can claim to have some of the best wide outs in the game. With the departure of Terrell Owens, the Cowboys suddenly look average at the position.

The big question mark continues to be with Roy Williams and how well he will produce for the Cowboys this season. So far, he’s injured his wrist and shoulder in practices, keeping him out for the rest of the preseason. Let’s be reminded that other than his 2006 season, Williams has been an average receiver. Yet we paid a good buck for him, didn’t we?

Which reminds me: Keep a watch on these players, all of whom could be a Dallas Cowboy instead of Williams:

Brandon Pettigrew TE
Alex Mack C
Percy Harvin WR
Michael Oher OT
Peria Jerry DT
Vontae Davis CB
Clay Matthews OLB
Donald Brown RB
Eric Wood C
Hakeem Nicks WR
Kenny Britt WR
Chris Wells RB
Evander Hood
