Also known as Al Davis' Wet Dream Theater.
DeSean Jackson brought new life to the Eagles offense with an impressive rookie campaign.
His speed and quickness on both the deep ball and in the return game made for a dangerous player who saw the field nearly 60-70 percent of the game.
So what do the Eagles decide to do?
Bring in his clone.
Enter Jeremy Maclin.
The speedster from Missouri is both DeSean Jackson's athletic twin, and his talent polar opposite.
While Jackson's return abilities trump his receiving ones, Maclin's talent as a receiver helped lead Missouri to their best finish in years.
Both these men are perfect fits for the Eagles version of the West Coast Offense.
Both can turn short passes into long gains.
The twist the Eagles put on the West Coast system is using McNabb's cannon of an arm to incorporate the Nine Route, or "The Streak" for Madden players, into any and seemingly every play.
Having a Bolter on both sides of the field will do four things
A.Force a safety to cheat to one side of the field.
B.Force teams to open up the flats
C.Force teams into two safety deep defenses.
D.Force corners to give a five—to—seven—yard cushion
All of these options are bad ones for opposing defenses against the Eagles.
Option A leaves the middle of the field open. Option B leaves Westbrook open. Option C means the run game can prosper. And finally, Option D means slants and drags all the way down the field.
Invest in DeSean Jackson. Reach for him. Early.
Maclin will be a good late-round steal if your draft forgets about him.
