Doug Pederson is "optimistic" that DeSean Jackson will suit up and play Sunday against the Bears. Jackson said he's ready to go.

With a struggling Bears coming to the Linc, and with the bye week up next, should the Eagles preserve Jackson for one more game, giving the dynamic veteran wideout two more weeks to be ready?

Eagles Insiders Geoff Mosher and Adam Caplan answered that question and broke down Sunday's game -- offense vs. defense and vice-versa -- along with analyzing the spread and giving their game predictions in the latest Inside the Birds podcast.

Notes also on Andre Dillard vs. Khalil Mack, Mitchell Trubisky's struggles, and the Eagles' defensive line.
