    Jeremy Maclin and it isn't really close in my eyes, I've been saying it for a while that I think Maclin will be the more complete option. I have come to the conclusion that DeSean better get bigger because he isn't going to be making big plays next season, the Cowboys showed how to stop him and now he will have to adjust and if he doesn't then he will be a one year wonder type of guy.

    Maclin has the makings of a top 10 if not top 5 receiver in the NFL at some point in his career and he will be there right next to Miles Austin and Hakeem Nicks.

      Coming out Maclin was my top receiver of his class. I saw his absolute ceiling as something reminiscent of Tim Brown. I still see no reason why he can't evolve into that consistent thousand-yard threat year in and year out, with the capacity for a few monster seasons as well. I don't even believe poor QB play would hamper his production because of his continuously improving route running ability that should enable him to work the shorter routes to perfection much like he did in college.

      In contrast, I'm not completely sure where Jackson's game will go from here; at some point he will need to bulk up (even just a bit) and take after Maclin's game. This will be especially needed once the keys to the franchise are handed over to Kolb in a couple years.

        As a pure reciever, I think Maclin. He is bigger and stronger than Maclin and has about the same speed. For a rookie Maclin has incredible body control and very good hands. I see him being a more reliable target than Jackson, but you are comparing 1a to 1b. They are both very good recievers, but I think Maclin's size and body control will put him slightly above Jackson.

          It is Desean Jackson and it is not even close.

          For you Eagles fans that think Maclin's ceiling is higher, I hope Desean doesn't resign and ends up playing on the other side of Austin with the Cowboys or anywhere else for that matter - you don't deserve Desean's skills.

          Also, talking about how the Cowboys stopped Desean is a joke - yeah, all they did was constantly double team him while Maclin got zero separation on his underneath routes w/man coverage. Get a fuggin clue...

            You did watch Maclin make Mike Jenkins his ***** during the playoffs?

            Why are you so bitter? Just because some people think Maclin might end up being a bit better, you think DeSean should not resign and go sign with a division rival? That's a little bit of an overreaction.

              Ignoring anything other than receiving abilities, I think it will be Maclin. Of course how he performs this year will go a long way into giving us a clue in the future, but Maclin has more strength to his game than DeSean, and more strength than many people realize. I think both are going to be great WRs for a very long time, I just feel Maclin will end up a little better because he has a little more balance to his game than DeSean, who I am a huuuuuuuuge fan of.

                  Since no Eagles fans are holding it down for Desean after everything he has done, I will. When it is all said and done, Desean will have the better career. Book it.

                  Also, the comment is only intended towards those that think Maclin will be better. For those fans that think Desean will be better, I hope he has a long and successful career for the Birds, brining the city multiple SB's.

                    For those of us that think Maclin will be better, it isn't a slight to DeSean, it shows you how highly we feel about Maclin. Then you spout off about how we don't deserve him because we don't appreciate him, ha, find any one post in here saying anything truly negative about DeSean. There are comments about him being less balanced (me being one of them) but you won't find any post in here saying that DeSean is anything less than very good.

                      Per Thumper, "I have come to the conclusion that DeSean better get bigger because he isn't going to be making big plays next season, the Cowboys showed how to stop him and now he will have to adjust and if he doesn't then he will be a one year wonder type of guy."

                      This is a joke, right?

                      First off, eaglesalltheway, I have no qualms against you. For the most part, we've mostly seen eye to eye and for your sake, I hope your Birds find the success it's looking for.

                      But regarding Desean, he's been making big plays all his life and did it for the birds in his first two years during a period when most receivers are paid to ride pine and don't have the ability to transition into the NFL game. Desean's changed Reid's thinking about playing rookies at the WR position, been breaking records ever since, has carried the load as the Eagles #1 WR, yet not even one Eagles fan on here holds it down for Djax and thinks he's going to be the better receiver? What gives? Do you think defensive coordinators are scheming against Dmac's "strength" or Desean's ability to get behind the defense and score from anywhere on the field? Even the non-casual, NON-EAGLES fan can see who is the more dangerous player/weapon. The Cowboys committed to shutting Desean down (nothing new by the way, I've seen it quite a bit in his career) and hats off to them because they are a dangerous team, but football is a team sport and when he's drawing double coverage as he mostly was, that leaves other guys open and it's their JOB to come up with big plays.

                      When DMac is activating the passing game by drawing the double coverages, stretching the field, and leaving Desean on man coverage, I will give Dmac all the credit in the world. Since the day Maclin was drafted, everyone wants to compare Desean to Maclin and I've even read that Maclin is a "bigger version" of Desean when they aren't anything alike. People see what Desean has accomplished and project that into the bigger body of Maclin and it over credits Maclin and under credits Desean. Unfortunately, I don't think bird fans (at least on here) can see that without the absence of Desean in your offense.

                      Is it possible that Maclin could be better when their careers are over? Of course, a lot can happen over the course of a career. However, I'd bet a years salary that it isn't going to work out that way and that's a pretty easy bet for me to make.

                          As of RIGHT NOW I would say Desean, with Maclin not far behind. I think Maclin will surpass him soon as a more complete receiver, but if I had to pick one for a game tomorrow, I'd take DJax.

                          A key thing to remember is that Desean did really well his rookie season without a real established receiving threat to take the focus off him like he did for Maclin last season. There's no doubt about it that Desean made Maclin's job easier. It was the games where teams sold out to stop Desean where Maclin had his biggest games.

                          So as of right now I'd say Desean but it's close, and it's in no way ridiculous to say that Maclin's better. They are very different, DJax excels in certain aspects, but Maclin is more of a prototype #1.

                            Wow mj.... Did you see DeSean get taken out of games against the Cowboys? Don't you think people are going to figure that out? They're going to look at the tape and say "Hey, if we do this, we can stop one of the most explosive players in the nfl". DeSean needs to adjust his game if he wants to keep up because right now if other teams figure out what Dallas did, DeSean is going to have a down year. Jeremy Maclin is a guy who can do everything, he can go deep like DeSean or he can go underneath without worrying about him being snapped. Jeremy Maclin made the Dallas Cowboys his ***** and he was mighty impressive doing it and when you look at their stats, Jeremy had the better rookie season.
