Maybe Vincent Jackson is lobbying for extra passes come September, or maybe he's just illustarting how absurd it is for anyone to try and label certain quarterbacks as "elite" and where that line is drawn. Jackson told the Tampa Bay Timesthat his QB - Josh Freeman - is in the Top 5 in the entire league:
"We were a little more flashy as far as the names go (in San Diego), but I think we're just as talented here all the way across the board.'' Jackson said Monday. "We have tight ends, running backs and obviously, Josh Freeman, and he's a quarterback I think should be mentioned among the top five in the league.''
Most fans, analysts and even players wouldn't rank Freeman higher than fourth in his own division, but beauty - and passing yards - are clearly in the eye of the wide receiver.
