Falcons Sign Willie Jackson

Well we all knew that it was just a matter of time before someone signed Jackson. And in true Saints fashion, he was signed by one of our division rivals. The only thing that scares me is his abililty to run after the catch. With some of the tackling I saw last year from the Saints, this could be scary.

Falcons Sign Willie Jackson

While it\'s true that the guys we let go usually go to a division rival and bite us in the @$$ later, this isn\'t that big a deal considering Willy will be their only respectable reciever(IMHO) and the running back they have playing the QB position (VICK) has yet to prove he can do anything other than run an option.

Falcons Sign Willie Jackson

As much as I like Willie, the truth is we just didn\'t need him anymore. He\'s a good reciever, but he\'s not a #1 reciever. The Falcons just happened to be desperate enough to sign him as their #1. I\'ll miss Willie, and I would have preferred to see him sign out of our devision, but our secondary will be much more solid in the tackling department this year. That gives Atlanta one weapon...we should have no trouble defending against that!
