Custom Seattle Seahawks Jersey but think
|"DeSean Jackson is a really good football player. His track record shows
that, and if you just had an ISO camera on DeSean Jackson when he was
on the field this year, DeSean Jackson wins most of the time," said head
coach Dirk Koetter. "When he is trying to get behind the defense, he
can get behind the defense. We did not do a good job of getting him the
ball in positions that he is used to getting it, which is over the top."
Jackson caught 50 passes for 668 yards, the second-lowest mark of his
career, behind only
his 2015 season where he played just nine games. His 13.4
yards-per-catch average was a career-low.
Jackson made his living the past 10 years on deep passes, where he can
use his speed to fly downfield. The intent to get him those balls was
there, however. Jackson led the league with 15.82 air yards per target.
He had seven targets of 40 or more yards but did not catch a single one
of those passes. In his three years with the Washington Redskins, he had
11 catches for 40-plus air yards and 30 for his career.
On passes of 30 or more air yards, he was targeted 11 times and mustered
zero catches. Mike Evans, on the other hand, had one catch for 40 or
more air yards (thrown by Winston) and five catches on passes of 30 or
more. Evans had three three catches of 30-plus air yards last season,
but deep passes don't impact his game the way they do Jackson's.
"I think DeSean did his part, Koetter said. "I see it out there in
practice, I see it on the game tape. DeSean Jackson hasn't lost a step
or anything like that. Whether it was by play design or whether it was
Jameis' injury during the middle part of the season when maybe Jameis
didn't have the confidence that he could put it on the money over 40
yards down the field, but we didn't do a good job in that area."
Winston suffered a sprained AC join in the right shoulder of his
throwing arm. The team announced his injury after Week 6, but sources
close to Winston say that it actually happened against the Minnesota
Vikings in Week 3, meaning he was struggling through the injury for a
lot longer that people realize. Winston was ultimately sidelined by it
after Week 9 and didn't return until Week 13.
"After he came back from Custom Oakland Raiders Jersey
the injury, I think Jameis improved his deep-ball throwing," Koetter
said. "He had two examples of that [against the New Orleans Saints] --
the one in the first half down the New Orleans sideline to Mike. That
ball was right on the money, and then obviously the last throw of the
game to Chris [Godwin]. You just can't help Custom Seattle Seahawks Jersey
but think, 'Where was DeSean Jackson on those plays?'"
Winston believes it also boiled down to chemistry and likened it to his
first season with Evans, when the two had to find their sweet spot.
That meant spending a lot of extra time together in the offseason, and
Winston is hoping to do the same with Jackson.
"Not many quarterbacks get an opportunity to play with a guy like that,"
Winston said of Jackson. "So having a guy like that, you've gotta Custom New England Patriots Jersey
work with him, and DeSean and I have talked about our offseason
program. DeSean and I did work together in the offseason, but not as
much as we want."
Jackson was not a participant in every OTA workout, but attendance isn't
"With him coming to offseason workouts this year -- he's a veteran guy
-- but we have to get our work in, man," Winston said. "A lot of that
has to do with just me being able to get Custom Dallas Cowboys Jersey
him the football in the way that he likes the football. That's gonna be
important. So I'm gonna sit down and talk to him and go over some
things with him."
Jackson was inactive for the final two games because of an ankle injury,
and Evans' lone catch of 40-plus air yards came in Week 15 against the
