This guy had a huge day at camp today, worked with the first team quite a bit getting a lot of snaps, he didn't have any drops and he torched Trufant really bad. I think he makes the team beats out Kevin Cone.

I am actually really excited to see this kid develop on down the road. I really hope he makes the team and beats Cone for a roster spot. I think he could be special, especially learning under Julio and Roddy.

I've been hearing Jackson has been causing quite a stink around there.

Good to see him doing well. He comes from a small school in my honetown. Lamar is known as a baseball and engineering school usually.

Happy to see a kid from nowhere making a name for himself.

He should have beat out Cone last year imo. I have never seen much out of Cone.

Something about him dropping passes and not running his routes the first two days.


I missed yesterday...... And not trying to be a jerk, but I don't believe the hype. He might have had a good day, but he has still had two bad days.
- then again I hope this kidd proves me wrong like Davis did last year.

I will say this... I like hearing Marcus Jackson and Martel Moore is doing good .. I want to see what they do in the preseason because the depth behind our top 3 is thin thin.


Its hard to replace a Roddy or Julio  but last year... If one of those guys went down.... It was very noticable... Like i said i know they cant be replaced like that but you do need a guy who can come in and bring something (atleast a deep threat)

I don't care if it's Marcus Jackson, Martel Moore, Kevin Cone, Drew Davis or James Rodgers, we need somebody to step up and make Harry Douglas expendable.  Dude is so overrated it's not even funny.

That's interesting because he is one guy I am looking forward to seeing in preseason. I really liked what I saw out of him last preseason.

I'm very excited about Marcus Jackson.  He was one of the guys I studied and watch all the film I could have once the Falcons signed him.  Coming from a small school, he looked every bit of the playmaker we need to complement Roddy and Julio.  I think HD's time has come and gone as an explosive guy in the slot.   I hope I'm wrong about HD but read cool post about Marcus makes me happy happy happy..  

You Cats at training camp so the young fella love.  Cheer him on. Give him that confidence to push forward and help this team win.

It's a dream that could come true seeing my Birds in the Superbowl and winning.

You didn't like Jackson? I thought he was pretty awesome from what I saw. I'd say he's on par with Cone and could be better than Davis.

I can't stand this. HD is getting paid, yea, but he is not overrated. The guy has made some incredible catches, and great plays. If his confidence was ramped up he would be amazing. He is fast and elusive. He just needs to let the shakiness go.

If he hadn't of slipped during the 49ers game we would be singing his praises to the high Heavens.
