    Jackson's outburst: 'It was the heat of the battle'

    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    09/17/2007

    As he left Rams Park on Monday afternoon, following team meetings and review of game film, running back Steven Jackson chalked up his angry outburst Sunday to the heat of battle. And the frustration of a wrenching 17-16 defeat to San Francisco.

    "I was upset mainly because I thought we were going to come out on top," Jackson told a small group of reporters. "I really thought we were going to win, and I was hoping that we could put together a successful drive _ and it just wasnít going that way. It was more a vocal out-letting of frustration as anything."

    Jackson was seen yelling at coach Scott Linehan on the sideline after a third-and-7 pass from Marc Bulger to Drew Bennett fell incomplete on the Ramsí second-to-last offensive possession of the game. Jackson had to be pulled away by running backs coach Wayne Moses on the sideline.

    Jackson apparently was open on the play on a pass route. In fact, there were a few plays where Jackson was open during the game, but the ball went elsewhere. But Jackson said that had nothing to do with his anger.

    "Oh, no, no, no," Jackson said. "I like to catch the ball a lot, but I understand itís not my (primary) job. I expect Marc to look for Isaac (Bruce) and Torry (Holt) before he looks for me. Always."

    Jackson said there are no pass patterns in the playbook where heís the No. 1 option.

    "Iím never the primary," Jackson said. "Iím two or three _ the second or third option."

    When asked if he would like some plays in the book where heís the No. 1 receiving option, Jackson laughed and replied: "No. Unless you want me to lose 20 or 30 pounds."

    Doesn't sound like anything major.

    The man is a beast. The beast needs to excell in all aspects of the game when he's on the field. That includes blocking and protecting the QB!

    Jackson is the "man" and I'm glad he show's emotion. IMO, it demonstrates that as a leader of that team, he cares and wants to win.
