Texans are the cure for whatever ails DeSean

Much ado has been made of DeSean Jackson's situation with the Eagles -- he was reportedly disgruntled about something, whether it was Andy Reid (reportedly) calling him out after the Bears game, or the fact that the Eagles haven't offered him a long-term deal yet.

The latter was a hot topic on Wednesday, as Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer cited sources that say Jackson is allowing his contract situation to become a "distraction," which was pushed into the light when Jackson decided not to practice punt returns before the Eagles lost to the Bears.

Additionally, according to McLane's sources, Jackson is being influenced by agent Drew Rosenhaus, who apparently stresses to Jackson "the importance of padding his receiving statistics" for a new deal. (Note that this is pretty obvious logic -- bigger numbers almost always equates to more money.)

However, maybe Jackson's just fine -- Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News-Journal cites two sources who say Jackson "isn't causing any disturbances" around the team's facilities and, instead, understands that the issues with the labor negotiations heading into 2011 make it increasingly difficult for teams to throw out new deals.

But isn't it entirely possible that it's both things?

For instance, Jackson's not going to have the season he had last year, and that's probably frustrating, but it doesn't necessarily mean that he's throwing hissy fits all around the Eagles' facility and demanding a new deal. Frustration is something that pretty typically pops up when teams lose and star players don't post huge numbers.

The solution, then, is simple: play the Texans, who, were it not for Rusty Smith helping the Texans to a goose egg in Week 12, would still be tracking for a historically terrible passing defense.

Fortunately for Jackson, the Eagles and everyone forced to answer questions about his situation with Reid, that's exactly who's on the schedule Thursday. And, as Sheil Kapadia of Philly.com points out, 127 yards on Thursday from Jackson will put him right back on the same average yards per game he hit in 2009, excluding the two games he missed for injury.

Don't be surprised if he cruises past in what should be a heavily-targeted day for the top option on a dangerous passing team.
