Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson doesn't seem worried that his numbers are down this season when quarterback Kevin Kolb's in the lineup. During his weekly appearance on Comcast SportsNet's "Daily News Live," Jackson praised Kolb's performance against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.
"We have confidence in him. ... I think he came in and did a good job, especially after all the hype with [Michael] Vick," said Jackson.
Jackson and Kolb haven't hit their stride this season, and some folks have based that on the quarterback not being able to extend plays long enough for Jackson to come free. In a blog entry Tuesday morning, I brought up the fact that Jackson had a couple of big games with Kolb last season.
In other Eagles news, former Stanford defensive end Panell Egboh has been added to the practice squad. Egboh was claimed by the Eagles on Aug. 31 and he had a sack and forced fumble in the team's preseason finale. The 49ers signed him as an undrafted rookie in '09 and he spent some time on the Texans' practice squad last season.
With the loss of defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, it's likely the Eagles are trying to create some depth along the line.
