Yeah, we'll see just how washed up he is this year....


Yup.

Jackson has plenty left in the tank.

He's been a great player on a horrible team yet still puts up consistent numbers.

He's now the 3rd option on a team that is going to be a nightmare for defenses.

Just keep in mind how we all marveled at the juggernaut the Eagles were going to be (on paper) a few years back...

This is an excellent point.

It's also important to remember that Jackson has a lot of mileage on his odometer and when it's over for a RB, it's over... and it happens overnight. One morning they wake up and they don't have it anymore.

For Jackson, that morning could come any day now - for all we know it may have been this morning.

It's hard to tell since we barely use them.

Why in the world would we "use" them more than we do? We're trying to win football games.

The problem is that one of them shouldn't be here. Not only could we take the finances to address one of out many bleeding positions, you'd also see the two that remain have their statistics be more reflective of their actual impact.

Tell the Saints defense that... people laugh at the notion that Jackson might be washed up but assume DeAngelo must be washed up based on his production, regardless of how many opportunities he's getting and how crappy our playcalling and offensive line is.

He's still an incredible running back though.

Those tires may not have a shitload of tread left on them but you are mistaken if you don't think he can keep it going for another strong year or two. See: Corey Dillon

Falcons a serious Super Bowl contender next year.

Oh I'm not saying he can't, I'm just saying...

Falcons need to find a pass rush before they can be considered a serious SB contender IMO.

If we had that roster, this board would be overflowing with Super Bowl predictions, just saying...
