File under: You can't make this stuff up.

Fresh off signing a five-year, $51 million deal, Jackson tells USA Today:

I just feel that my destiny with the Eagles is very bright and I'm still happy that I have five bright years to look for. In one of those years, I'm going to guarantee a Super Bowl because we've been close the past four years that I've been here. Last year, with it being a tough year, just the way we caught on fire towards the end of the year, I see this team as the sky being the limit. 

So, after Philadelphia spent all of 2011 with the albatross of Vince Young's "Dream Team" comment around their necks, the Eagles can now enjoy the 2012 season and beyond under the weight of Jackson's guarantee. 

Enjoy the offseason, Eagles fans!
