WR Jackson Wants To Be Elite

After a terrific rookie season, DeSean Jackson has come to training camp and looked to have taken his game to another level. He has been both a hit with the fans - he, along with Donovan McNabb, routinely receives the most attention from the fans of players on the field - and a star on the field, creating the kind of separation that only an elite receiver generates.

"The biggest thing of this training camp is just to keep getting better," Jackson said. "Last year, I was very young. I wouldn't call myself immature, but there were things that I wasn't aware of and there were things that I probably didn't know. But coming in this year, having gotten that experience out of my way, it's just a work in progress right now to get better.

"I want to be known as one of the best wide receivers in the league. It's not going to be handed to me; I have to go get it."

A lot of that improvement has come off the field.

"The work we put in the classroom, like five to six hours a day and two to three hours a night," Jackson said, "We're actually putting a lot of work in. I just try to find something on film, I like to critique myself ... no matter if I took a 65-yard touchdown to the end zone, I'm going to look at that play and find something that I did wrong, because there's always something you can find in your game that you can crisp up, and that's my thing."
