View Full Profile. Jackson made it pretty clear Ford will be a bigger part of the offense after starting the last nine games of last season and posting two 100-yard games.
“You better believe I do,” Jackson said when asked if he intended to get Ford the ball more next season. “Obviously, Jacoby is going to become a household name, because he has some very special ability. He’s very good with the ball in his hands — he’s very good without the ball in his hands — because he draws a lot of attention.
“He’s just scratching the surface of what he truly can be.”
Speaking of drawing attention, we can now consider the bar officially set high for Ford.
