Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson has been quiet through training camp and the preseason. But he took some time out to talk to the media today, and he said the offense isn’t missing a beat with quarterback Kevin Kolb replacing Donovan McNabb.
“We haven’t lost a step since he’s come in and become the man,” Jackson said, per Tim McManus of PhillySportsDaily.com. “The offense is still the same. The only difference is we have a new quarterback. Everything is still the same.”
Jackson also brushed aside questions about his contract, saying that’s not what he’s thinking about heading into the season.
“I’m just here to play football. All that other stuff I could care less about,” Jackson said. “I have a job to do. If that takes me being a leader and being a vocal guy, I’m here to do whatever. But I’m just here to play football and win games.”
So far in the preseason, Jackson is doing a good job of just playing football. Jackson leads the team with six catches for 121 yards through two preseason games.
