THE GUY WHO is going to make you forget about DeSean Jackson this season isn't Jeremy Maclin or Riley Cooper or even rookie Jordan Matthews. The guy who is going to make you forget about Jackson isn't even a wide receiver. He's a tight end. He's Zach Ertz. He's not Jimmy Graham. Yet. He'a not Jason Witten or Rob Gronkowski. Yet. And while you might think I'm jumping the gun mentioning somebody who has played only 459 NFL snaps in the same breath with three of the most dangerous pass-catching tight ends in the NFL, Ertz has that kind of ability, that kind of upside.

The Eagles passing game has survived without Jeremy Maclin in the lineup, although it's clear after three games that they miss the injured wide receiver. The offense has not struggled to accumulate yardage - the Eagles are No. 2 in the NFL in total yards and No. 13 in passing yards - but it has become more dependent on DeSean Jackson. Now the undisputed No. 1 pass catcher, Jackson has 43 percent of the Eagles' receiving yards. That's the third highest percentage in the NFL. "He's a very talented player.

Poor Donovan McNabb. After one season with the best wide-receiving tandem he had as an Eagle, he gets traded to the Washington Redskins. Kevin Kolb will be the beneficiary of what has the potential to the top wide-receiver twosome in Eagles history. DeSean Jackson was a star from the start. Injuries made him the first rookie receiver to start a season opener under Andy Reid, but Jackson's six catches for 106 yards against the St. Louis Rams was a sign of things to come. Jackson set an Eagles rookie record with 62 catches and 912 receiving yards.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered another hip pointer Sunday and is unlikely to practice Wednesday, Eagles coach Andy Reid said. Maclin has not been ruled out for this Sunday's game at Arizona. He suffered a similar injury in the opener against Cleveland but was able to play in Sunday's win against Baltimore. "I stood here last week and told you it was going to be a struggle, and then he came around," Reid said Monday. "So I'd just tell you it's day-to-day. " Maclin, whose lone catch against Baltimore was a 23-yard touchdown, told reporters after the game that this injury was more serious than the first.

Jeremy Maclin stepped off the line of scrimmage on Saturday, tried to move to his left, and felt his right leg stick in the ground. The leg hyperextended and popped. Maclin sprawled devastated on the turf. He didn't need a diagnosis. He knew that he tore his anterior cruciate ligament and would be out for the season. "It wasn't the fact that it hurt," Maclin said. "It was the fact that I knew what happened. I was emotional, just knowing everything that was at stake. This is something I love to do. I love to play football.

ATLANTA - Jeremy Maclin had his coming out party Sunday night. The rest of the nation found out what Philadelphia has known for a year now: The Eagles wide receiver is a budding star. Yes, the Eagles already have a superstar wideout in DeSean Jackson. But on a night when Jackson was held in check, Maclin carried the pass-catchers - until the bitter end. Unfortunately, his effort was all for naught as the Eagles fell to the Falcons, 35-31, at the Georgia Dome, and when the team needed him most Maclin couldn't hold onto a Mike Kafka throw over the middle on fourth down with less than two minutes remaining.

Jeremy Maclin sat in a room at Benjamin Franklin High School on Tuesday morning, helping students with a financial education computer game that uses a football simulation to teach lessons about money. The Eagles wide receiver coached half of the class, a group representing his team, and picked run or pass plays of various difficulties. A multiple-choice question about finances appeared on the screen, and a correct answer produced a successful play. With the play-calling at his whim, Maclin requested some running plays for his students.

The Eagles' Jeremy Maclin tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Saturday's practice. It is an injury that will cost the 25-year-old wide receiver the season and will leave the Eagles trying to fill the void left by the loss of a productive starter just two days into camp. Maclin collapsed during noncontact 7-on-7 drills at the NovaCare Complex. He was helped to a cart after being examined on the turf for about five minutes. Coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman turned from watching practice to monitoring Maclin while he was on the ground.

IT'S GOING to happen every time Jeremy Maclin takes an awkward stride, suffers a hard hit or has his body contorted at a strange angle. Eagles fans are going to hold their collective breath and likely not exhale until Maclin is back on his feet and participating in the next play. That's how much the Eagles have banked on Maclin not just returning to form but actually being a better receiver than before he suffered the ACL tear to his right knee that cost him the entire 2013 season.

Like birds that headed south for winter, the Eagles' offensive skill players are slowly migrating back to the Philadelphia area. Instead of gathering at the NovaCare Complex, however, they're assembling in Cherry Hill at ever-popular Power Train Sports. Quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin are the latest to enlist trainer Steve Saunders in their offseason workouts, joining tight end Brent Celek and a handful of other Eagles. Running back LeSean McCoy will join the flock next week.

I WAS A BIT surprised, late in Thursday night's 31-21 Eagles preseason victory, to see a link on Twitter to a Yahoo.com take on the game, the author asserting that Ben Roethlisberger had really struggled on this night, and that Nick Foles hadn't fared much better. This, after Foles led back-to-back scoring drives, and staked the Birds to a 17-0 lead. He sat down at halftime 19-for-29 for 179 yards, a touchdown and an interception, which occurred when Darren Sproles tripped over one of his blockers and fell in front of Troy Polamalu.

A little more than 10 minutes remained in the first half of the Eagles' first preseason game of the summer that included both of coach Chip Kelly's starting wide receivers. All was well. The offense was firing on all cylinders against the Pittsburgh Steelers, even after LeSean McCoy left with a benign thumb ailment. The Eagles scored touchdowns on two of their first three possessions, with quarterback Nick Foles spreading the ball to his multitude of weapons. There were third-down throws to Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, the aforementioned starting receivers, for first downs.

By the time the second half of the Eagles' 31-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers started on Thursday night, Nick Foles was wearing a baseball cap and studying the game on a tablet. His evening was complete. It was the same for the rest of the starters. Coach Chip Kelly took his top players out after their two best quarters this month. Preseason games can be unconvincing and deceiving, but they provide glimpses on the way to the regular season. And the outlook of Eagles fans may have understandably improved from alarmed (after the preseason opener)

LeSean McCoy left the Eagles preseason game against the Steelers on Thursday night with a right-thumb injury after scoring a first-quarter touchdown. X-rays were negative. The Pro Bowl running back returned to the sideline with his hand wrapped but did not reenter the game. McCoy finished the game with four carries for 24 yards and two receptions for 26 yards, including a flare pass for the 22-yard touchdown. The Eagles avoided a major injury when wide receiver Jeremy Maclin slipped to the ground without being hit after making a cut and immediately grabbed his right knee.

If the strength of the Eagles is supposed to be their offense again this season, that unit did not flex its muscles much in the first two preseason games. The first-team offense was on the field for seven drives. Only one ended with a touchdown. Three ended with turnovers, two ended with punts, and one ended with a missed field goal. The Eagles averaged only 4.6 yards per play. That's nearly 2 yards fewer than the team's 2013 season average. Three quarters in two preseason games cannot foretell what will come this season.

You take the mileposts as you find them in the preseason, but there was one the Eagles passed Monday when their three projected starting receivers practiced together for the first time. Riley Cooper, Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews - two of whom weren't even on the active roster last season - are expected to carry the weight at that position this year. Of course, being on the field at the same time will help. Cooper missed more than a week during training camp with an ankle injury and Maclin, coming off knee surgery, had been sidelined since last Wednesday with a hamstring injury.

WHEN THE EAGLES take the field Thursday night for the third of their four preseason games, they could feature as close to a fully stocked wide-receiving corps as we'll see before the Sept. 7 season opener. A foot injury cost Riley Cooper most of training camp, but the Eagles' No. 2 receiver said yesterday he "felt good" after fully participating in practice and plans to make his preseason debut against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field. Jeremy Maclin's status for the game is still to be determined, but he is slated to return to practice today after missing Friday's game in New England with hamstring tightness.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Talk about cutting the exhibition season in half and expanding the NFL's regular season by two games has all but died, but we think commissioner Roger Goodell is implementing a secret plan to get the conversation going again. Apparently, his strategy is to flag the players union into submission. You'd have to be a masochist to vote against less exhibition football, especially the variety we've seen so far this summer. Through these first two weeks, there have been more flags thrown by NFL officials than you'll find outside the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan.
