    did anyone else see jackson hobbling off the field?

    Can someone please explain to me what jackson is doing in the game with 3 minutes left and us down 35-6? The injury didnt look serious, looked like a little twist of the ankle, but i have been making this point all year and its just absolutely stupid to have him in the game at that point. Without jackson we are a legitimate 0-16 team and we have a very winnable game next vs detroit.

    Let hope its not serious. Its just stupid coaching.

    Ramming speed to all

    Coaching has been an issue all year long.

    Lets hope he's okay. Next week is our only shot at a win for the rest of the year.

    Makes one wonder of the Coach/Coordinators NFL IQ of this team! No reason for JAX to be in the game at that point and time. JAX (23/134 yds) Wasted effort! JAX gets RAMS in REDZONE and for some reason Darby is inserted and Rams go 3 & out! Its just not smart football!!! IF JAX can't go next week, Heads should ROLL!!!!!

    I agree and even if Jackson wants to stay in the game you have to have enough b**** to tell him he is done for the day,this team is bad and the coaching is not far behind.

It looks like Steven is the only guy on the team that is giving it his all, and I for one am happy that he wanted to go back in.
    if you find out tommorrow that he broke his ankle and is out for the season will you be just as happy ?

    I think you are missing the point as to why he is happy.

    Jackson could go down on the first offensive play from scrimmage. There are some that would argue that the Rams were going to lose this game no matter what. Hell, even bulger had a defeatist attitude going in, by saying it would take a perfect game to win.

    Along those lines perhaps Jackson should not suit up? Or maybe they should have sat Jackson at halftime, since the game was effectively over then?

    Moot point cause that didnt happen.

    Spags has already said we will be playing teams until the final second ticks off the clock, I like that jackson stayed in.

    I thought I was the only one who felt that Bulger went into this game with a defeatist attitude!

    NFL players are competitors, so they always want to be on the field. Jack Youngblood stayed in the game when it became apparent that the Rams would lose Super Bowl XIV. How would he , or any player for that matter, be remembered if they removed themselves from games to save themselves from injury? Injuries can happen at any time of the game. I agree that the coaching staff should have removed Jackson, but you can't blame him for going in if he's not told otherwise.

    you guys that say he should play to the end are the same ones that would be on here *****ing up a storm if he got hurt in the final 3 minutes of a 42-6 game. leaving your best player in a blowout doesn't prove anything.

    Complaining about it when nothing bad happened doesn't matter either so why are we having this conversation?

    but if he goes down on the first play from scrimmage the game isn't 42-6 with the Rams having no chance of winning,second if the coaching staff is so gung ho about this message they are sending why didn't he play in the preseason ?

    to save him for the regular season,so why go out and take a chance of him getting hurt at that point in a blowout game when you need him next week to have any chance of winning. how does this make the team better ?

    remember the Dallas game last season, some of us do,it can happen, I guess we are just hoping history doesn't repeat itself.

    First off if the jackson goes down in the first play, the game is 42-0 with the rams having no chance of winning

    Second, if you dont show fans the player they want to see and you dont show that you arent willing to fight through the end. How are you supposed to gather support for your team?

    I understand your point and it makes sense,but real fans such as the guys on this site know that Jackson is all about fighting to the end,we all know his heart is into it and he wants to do whatever it takes,but sometimes common sense has to take over and I think most fans would realize that,but I could be wrong.
