This year hasn't been 2007 for Brian Westbrook. He is in the bottom third of rushing leaders, can't seem to avoid the injury bug, and has disappeared in games when he is needed most. But the man does have something upstairs: He was very smart to get that extension signed in the off-season. A Villanova education; priceless!
There is still time for 'B-West' to save his season and do a New York Giants punt return on the Eagles 2008 season. I wouldn't doubt him. But just in case B-West doesn't return to being B-West, well, it's nice to have rookie wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
There have been some "rookie" moments for DeSean this season, but overall you just gotta say "Wow!".
In nine games Jackson has collected 973 yards from scrimmage. Not quite B-West of 2007, but pretty phenomenal for a second round draft pick out of California.
So maybe tomorrow is the week that Westbrook gets rolling and finally stays rolling (the Bengals run defense does suck).
A healthy #36, with the continued growth of #10 could actually equal five or six wins down the stretch.
Tomorrow the Eagles get the first of those five or six.
