Eagles wide reciever Jeremy Maclin told CSNPhilly.com that Marty Mornhinweg’s offense was geared towards DeSean Jackson more than him.  He’s looking forward to his role in Chip Kelly’s offense. “I’m going to be honest, the last offense was geared to the position that D-Jack played,” Maclin said. “That’s just what it was. That’s just what it was. So the fact that I was able to personally accomplish what I accomplished, I think as far as the position I was playing, I think that’s above what that guy normally does. “D-Jack and I were able to complement each other, and it worked well. But that’s just how the offense was tailored.” Maclin explains the different types of West  Coast Offenses. “There’s two ways you can run the West Coast Offense,” Maclin said. “You can run it where the flanker position, you can put him in the slot, put him in motion, or you can tailor it around a single receiver who’s always by himself. And when Marty was here, we tailored it around the flanker position. That’s just how it was.” Maclin believes the numbers he’s put up in the past were very good. “Everybody uses that 1,000-yard benchmark, but at the same time, if you have a guy who has 850-plus yards and eight touchdowns or a guy who has 1,000 yards but two touchdowns, which guy do you really want?” Maclin said. “A guy who has X amount of catches for first downs as opposed to a guy who has this and that?” Maclin understands he can’t worry about his numbers. “My thing is I’m one of the veteran guys, one of the guys who has done some good things in this league, so I understand I’m going to be one of the guys that’s going to help this team win,” he said. “And as long as we’re winning, the stats are going to come. As long as we’re winning, man, I’m going to continue to just be available and if that means I’ve got 1,200 yards, that’s 1,200 yards. If that means I have another 900-yard season, then that’s what it is. I’m not going worry about all that.” Maclin is excited about Kelly’s offense. “All change is not bad change,” Maclin said. “I’m excited to see this develop into something that I believe can be special, as far as the energy, the scheme, everything that he’s bringing to the table. “I’m excited, and if we get 100 percent buy-in -– which I think we have so far –- and guys put everything they have into this, we’ll get back to where we need to be, and that’s in the playoffs.”   Need NFL Tickets?
