    Steven Jackson Leaning Towards Retirement?

    " Roland Williams says on our radio show today that he's hearing#stlrams RB Steven Jackson is leaning towards retirement"

    - Andy Strickland

    Steven did say he'd rather leave the game wanting more than leave it on the downside (like Barry Sanders). I wouldn't be too dissapointed if he retired. He may not have even been the best RB on our OWN team last year, plus I couldn't stand to see him in another uniform. I guess we'll see where he goes with it, but someone I'd keep my eye on for a potential replacement (not that I've lost any hope in Pead/Drich) is Stanfords Stepfan Taylor.

    If he retires that will just make a hard decision easy in terms of whether or not to retain him.

    I think Jackson can still play. I think the main thing will be the money. I would love him to finish his career at the Rams

    I think he doesn't want to play anywhere but St Louis and is using this as a negotiation tactic for a 1-2 year deal to get more money

    Darryl Richardson did a good job for a while, then tapered off, and Pead didn't show anything his first year. I hope Sjax stays because I don't think we have a RB who can carry the load for a full season on the roster. Then again, I haven't looked into the RBs in this year's draft yet.

    only one man can know how his body feels after that season, so if he says he wants to retire, so be it. BUT I would love for him to come back

    Re: Steven Jackson Leaning Towards Retirement?

    Jim Thomas was asked in a recent chat whether or not he thought Jackson would be back. His response was: "I'm going to say 55-45 he's not back."

    I have no idea how Jim arrived at his conclusion, but if I was betting, I'd bet he will return. I think he is capable of playing another 2 years at a high level, and wants a chance at a championship. How many genuine "Championship" teams are there who would want or need him right now?

    I think he tests the market as a FA, and then works out a deal with the Rams. It is obvious he is happy with Fisher/Snead and he won't have to guess about his role should he re-sign with the Rams. We played a team that is in this year's Superbowl twice this season, and that team couldn't beat us. We will be even better next year ..

    Re: Steven Jackson Leaning Towards Retirement?

    Jackson was our best RB last year. Richardson proved to be a nice pick up for a 7th round pick but i think because of it he get`s over rated by some. if he had been taken before day 3 of the draft i`d be dissappointed in the pick.

    if Jax retires we need to pick a RB up in the draft..i hope he doesn`t retire and hope he stays playing for us for atleast another year.

    I don't think he would do that. If SJ actually said that, it was what he is thinking. If he wants to go on a high note, now or next year will be the time.

    Re: Steven Jackson Leaning Towards Retirement?

    Only Jackson really knows. If a guy like tony Gonzalez can retire while still playing at a very high level, anything is possible and SJ's body has taken a lot of physical beatings. I can see not being crazy about another off-season of work, camp, etc.

    Now, if SJ can blown all of his money since getting into the NFL, problem solved and no retirement
