'Like Watching A Video Game'

Veteran receiver Jason Avant said playing on the same offense as both Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick is "like watching a video game."

Added second-year man DeSean Jackson: "It's a blessing to be on the same offense. We've got a lot of firepower. It's crazy."

Jackson said Vick still has that natural ability that once made him one of the premier quarterbacks in the game. He especially likes the way he delivers the football.

"There's just something about that left-hand release. It's just like he flicks it," Jackson said. "He's got a real nice touch on his ball."

Off the field issues aside, Jackson says he's happy Vick is a part of the team.

"He's very humble," Jackson said. "He knows he's been through some things. It's going to be hard to erase that, but he has a second chance to do right."
