Eagles' Jackson ties 'Crazy Legs'
By Matt Mosley
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- With his remarkable performance tonight, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has tied Devin Hester and Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch (1951) for the most touchdowns of 50 yards or more in a season with eight. Before he made that last catch, Jackson had averaged 44.8 yards on five touches. He may be the most electrifying offensive player in the league right now.
Sorry, but can someone help me with that last play call by the Giants. They have the ball on the 43-yard line of the Eagles -- and they call an inside handoff? Really? After watching Hakeem Nicks and Kevin Boss run wild against this defense, that's the best you can do?
The Eagles offense won't stay quiet for long. You have to put the hammer down when you have the chance.
