And he didn’t wait very long to get Eagles fans of their couches.

That is just delightful football. Wentz with the dime, Reagor with the perfect route, and the Eagles rolling early.

If you know Eagles fans, you know they all made sure to clown Darby for the play:

Sorry, not sorry, Darbs!

The real highlight, though, is still Reagor looking sharp on that play. How sharp? That’s one of the longest catches in an Eagles debut, ever:

So having Jackson on the same team as Reagor, training up the Birds’ next great deep threat, is just awesome.
