“I’m going to be honest, the last offense was geared to the position that [DeSean Jackson] played,” Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said. “That’s just what it was. That’s just what it was. So the fact that I was able to personally accomplish what I accomplished, I think as far as the position I was playing, I think that’s above what that guy normally does.
“D-Jack and I were able to complement each other, and it worked well. But that’s just how the offense was tailored.”
“There’s two ways you can run the West Coast Offense,” Maclin said. “You can run it where the flanker position, you can put him in the slot, put him in motion, or you can tailor it around a single receiver who’s always by himself. And when Marty was here, we tailored it around the flanker position. That’s just how it was.”
The implication is that Chip Kelly's offense will make things more balanced between Jackson and Maclin, which could be good for Maclin provided the offense is successful in the NFL.
