It Seems Jackson Will Be Returning Punts Again.

Posted July 28, 2013

This is basically what I got out of a recent article about Chip Kelly and his players. He had nothing but praise for Jackson on how he passed his conditioning test, how he practiced, and most important was he saw the potential of what Jackson could do in his offense. He’s wisely decided to let/make Jackson return punts again this season which makes one wonder what was Andy Reid thinking last season????? You have Jackson who is a playmaker and a guy who can break one whenever he gets his hands on the ball and Reid almost never used him last season. Why was that? Was it because Jackson refused? If that were true then Reid deserved to be fired. There is no way to justify a coach as tenured as Reid bowing down to any player let alone a guy Jackson’s size. Reid allowing Jackson to do whatever he wanted would be further proof that he had lost it. If he didn’t allow Jackson to  return punts for fear of injury again Reid should have been fired. First no one can predict when and how an injury could occur. As such assume that Jackson is at greater risk returning kicks isn’t necessarily true as Jackson was injured last season on a reverse play, and look at Maclin this season getting injured without even putting on pads. Basically Reid hindered his football team out of fear placing a far inferior returner out there just incase somebody might get hurt? A big return can turn a game around. A great return man could improve field position without even touching the ball as teams kick to avoid him. All in all regardless of the reason why Andy choose not to properly use Jackson, his reasoning was basis enough  for him to be fired.
