DeSean Jackson: Nick Foles just hasn’t really gotten that opportunity
Wide out DeSean Jackson appeared on NFL AM on Wednesday and talked up his rookie quarterback when the subject of the Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback saga was breached.
“I know as far as Nick Foles what he is capable of doing coming out of college from Arizona, he’s definitely a great quarterback,” Jackson said. “Very young, too, at the same time. It’s just one of those things, you never know until it happens. … We’re just honestly just sitting around, and we’ll go to work tomorrow see if anything’s changed or what’s new, just ready to get going and turn this thing around.”
“As far as games, I think he’s able to do it,” Jackson said. “I think the sky’s the limit for him. He’s a talented player. He’s just hasn’t really gotten that opportunity, as far as this season. We’ll just see how it goes.”
“It’s one of (those situations when) we just stay in tuned and whatever the coaches decide to do, definitely just have to move along with it and hopefully we can get things turned around out here,” Jackson said. “We’re too good a team to be on a three-game losing streak, so whatever it is we need to do to fix it and get things rolling, that is what we are here to do.”
Although Jackson seems to be leaning towards working with Foles, the team announced on Wednesday that Vick will start.
