The Philadelphia Eagles have the most dynamic receiver in all of football, no matter what anyone says. There isn’t a guy who does as much at as high a level as A.J. Brown does. I mean, he, with the improved play of Jalen Hurts, is the reason this offense improved so much.
On Saturday, he will be playing someone he once played against in practice every day, and has already played his team twice this season. Adoree Jackson, the former Tennessee Titan cornerback and current New York Giants cornerback, kept it real when asked about his former teammate.
“He is just a dog,” Jackson told the media on Wednesday. “I don’t know any other way to explain it. A guy that gets after, attacks the ball, can run every route in the playbook; catch you with a screen and go 80, a slant and go 80 or hit you with a deep ball and go 80. A complete receiver can block, can do all the things that you would want. That’s truly a great player.”
Jackson has not only seen Brown go off every day in practice when they were teammates in Tennessee, but he has also seen it twice in person when the two teams played each other this year.
The first time Brown played the Giants he had four catches for 70 yards and a touchdown, as they trounced the division rival 48-22. In Week 18 in the last matchup, Brown finished with four catches for 95 yards by way of quarterback Jalen Hurts that seemed to be hurting pretty badly.
Brown is indeed a dog. I mean the dude has propelled himself into the top-five receiver conversation. Now, he has a chance to show what he can do in the playoffs as the number one guy on a number one offense from a number one quarterback.
