    Steven Jackson - An Unhappy Ram / ESPN First Take

    Reports from ESPN First Take, the morning sports variety show on ESPN2, Steven Jackson was very disgruntled after the Rams were waxed by the Titans in Tennessee last Sunday.

    Tennessee held the Rams' top offensive threat to a season-low 47 yards on 19 carries. Jackson was visibly upset after the game.

    After Sunday's game, SJ refused to meet with reporters.
    "Instead of standing here embarrassing myself, and my family, I'm just going to say I'm tired. I'm just tired. I'm tired. You fill in the blanks. However you want to write the article, however you want to say it, I'm just tired," Jackson said before walking away from his locker.

    Can one blame Steven Jackson for his frustrations?
    He is the only one pulling his weight for the Rams....and all for not.
    There is no support around him, no one else has stepped up.
    Bulger has failed him, Cogs has failed him, the Rams have failed him.
    Steven Jackson is just tired of it all........Tired of all the BS!

    Re: Steven Jackson - An Unhappy Ram / ESPN First Take

    When they insist on doing interviews on players immediately following a game, and the player they just interviewed just got his butt handed to him, again. What does anyone expect? He's a wasted talent on a bad, bad team. It's frustrating when you know you only have so many good years, and you've come to realize it'll be wasted on a bad team. He was speaking from frustration and I'm pretty sure everyone recognizes that and understands it. I had no problem with what he said, because he's right. We're all tired. Tired of watching bad football.

    Call me when Steven Jackson says he feels fine about 47-7 loss. THAT would be a news story.

    Can't blame him one bit for being as frustrated as he his. I'm just glad that even though we are not going to the playoffs, even though some others players are not pulling their wait, and even though several games look over before halftime, Jackson continues to play 100% on every down. He's earned a TON of respect from me this year.

    Ive developed a high high respect for Steven Jackson this year and the last couple... Remember when he was holding out for a contract a few years back or hurt and everyone said it was for the money, he's soft or doesn't know how to play injured, he's greedy etc... But I can tell you this he is a great back that gives his all for every moment in the games he is in...I feel bad for him being on our team being a life long Ram fan... we need to get our **** together for him the next 2 years..!

    It's the same in any work situation. If you're working really hard for your company while everyone around you is laying an egg, you'd be tired too.

    As Av mentioned already, report on Jackson when he's happy with a 47-7 loss.

    Every single Rams player with an ounce of self-respect should be disgruntled after this game, let alone the whole seaon.
