    one thing about Jackson

    Not sure if it just me....

    But I get kind of nervous the way he carries the ball. I know he is not noted as a fumbler, but there is something with the way he holds it with one hand. Maybe it just goes back to his very first run from scrimmage...I don't know, maybe I am paranoid.

    Re: one thing about Jackson

    That could be a bit of a concern, but I recall reading somewhere that he has extremely large hands, which may give him the ability to do that without fumbling too much.

    I agree jason. He has fumbled a couple of times this year, including the non fumble in the green bay game and i always remember the terrible fumble against the saints. We have been very, very spoiled by faulk over the years who almost never caughs it up.

    Re: one thing about Jackson

    His carrying style is similar to Edgerrin James. Check it out the next Indy game you happen to watch. James has large hands as well and carries it with more forearm than most. Same for Jackson. If he, like James, can learn to maintain control of this style while taking the big hits, fumbling shouldn't be an issue.

    P.S. this always made me laugh when all the "experts" (ie. Salisbury and Co.) wanted to compare Jackson to Ricky Williams. Williams has tiny hands and would fumble every carry if he didn't learn to bring the ball in tighter to his body. Jackson doesn't have to do that. Complete opposites in carrying style.

    I must admit I sometimes have to hold my breath when Jackson is hitting a hole or being tackled. 1 lost fumble can negate a lot of good runs. If he has a problem with holding onto the ball, it better get fixed now. Once you're labeled a fumbler, opposing defenders go for blood in trying to exploit that weakness. The Rams are performing on a razor thin margin, the last thing we can afford is another area of vulnerability.

    Why don't you just go root for some other team, you're obviously not a Rams fan. How can you criticize Jackson like that? The Rams won didn't they? All you haters want to do is just nitpick every little thing. Lamar Gordon isn't here anymore, quit living in the past. Jackson is the running back now, just deal with it. Why can't you focus on his good points and just be happy for him. Support who's on the Rams right now.

    Man, you guys just burn me up. :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

    I think we're going to have to change his name to MOCKlerman.

    In Mok's defense.....he's taken alot of heat, and sometimes alot of unwarranted criticism for some of his views simply because they went against "popular" opinion.

    I've been reading his posts for a long time and, trust me, there is nothing "bipolar" about him.

    Mok just likes to get a rise out of people. In time you just learn to love it ;-)

    P.S.--I got "it" a long time ago, just not feeding into "it"
