  • How should S.Jackson be utilized?

    After seeing him in the preseason, what do you think the Rams should do with Jackson?
    23
    As good as he's looked, he's not ready. Let him watch Faulk.

    Faulk's still the man. Jackson should be a short yardage specialist.

    While Faulk is still No. 1, Jackson should spell him and get 10-15 carries per game.

    The Rams need to use Jackson and Faulk in a 2 back set.

    The future is now! Jackson should start and Faulk should be a 3rd down back.

    The future is REALLY now. Start Jackson and trade Faulk.

    Move Jackson into 2 back sets confusing teams with him as lead blocker or motioning Faulk into the slot and setting him back in the I.

      I agree with both, "While Faulk is still No. 1, Jackson should spell him and get 10-15 carries per game" and "The Rams need to use Jackson and Faulk in a 2 back set."

        You know, Nick, after I posted this I had the same thought. I think that a 2 back set with Faulk and Jackson could work well, and I suspect that Jackson would be a good lead blocker when Faulk gets the ball.

        I would also like to see Jackson get 10-15 carries per game. Even if he only gets 40-50 yards, his bruising style will wear down D lines and prevent teams from keying on the pass as much as they did last year.

          Personally, I think I'd feel a bit more comfortable right now with Faulk and Jackson in the backfield, picking up blitzes and/or running into the flat or for a screen, than I would having Goodspeed or Manu at this point, even though Goodspeed had a great pick-up against the 'Skins. I think Jackson has the potential to really be a good pass blocker, especially with Faulk teaching him, and both of them make excellent targets.

            I like that! Get Marshal out on the flat, over the middle and punish them with Jackson!

              Two back sets in the first half, Jackson the lone back in the second. Faulk motion's from the two-back set, out to the slot throughout the game. They'll never know what hit em. Beat em down with Jackson in the fourth quarter. Control the tempo of the game for a change.

                2-back set? Let's go all the way, throw in Goodspeed and let's go wishbone! Old school baby, yea, wooo!

                Ok, now that I got that out of my system...
                Maine's got it right.

                This looks like a winner to me. Misdirection with the two back set (but I am concerned about lead blocking with Jackson), Faulk in motion w/ Jackson at offset. Wow, I got goosebumps.
                The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                  With as much as sMartz likes misdirection, if he hasn't seen the potential of this formation with these two backs and designed multiple plays to exploit it, then I am going to start having doubts about him as OC as well ...

                    It works on Madden quite well!

                        I'd trade him before I released him, but I think he still has value for the Rams at the 3WR rather than the ensemble currently assembled.

                          It depends. I think we'll see the Rams experiment with him early before they find what his appropriate role will be. I say give him the ten carries a game and let's see what he can do, but also use the two back set or even line Faulk up at WR.

                            I love Faulk but by week 5 or so this will be a moot point. Faulk will go down(as usual) and Jackson will be THE MAN. In the mean time it would be nice to see the kid get 10-15 carries...but OF COURSE this is all dependant on some FOOL remembering to get these guys at least 25-30 combined carries per game. FAT CHANCE.

                                Jackson or Faulk
                                by theodus69
                                Now I have took a beating on my remarks about Jackson. I have said I'm not sold on him and of course, the Line thing is the sticking point, But if the Rams are gonna get back to the High flying offense, Where does Jackson fit in? Isn't he a 30-40 carry a game guy? And if so, where does that fit a high flying offense? I think Faulk would be the better choice even at his present age! Jackson to me doesn't fit this offense. Which actually wouldn't surprise me if the Rams don't go after a R-back in the draft early. Jackson could be some good trade bait also. That's my thought so let yours fly!

                                Jackson should not have replaced Faulk this year
                                by sbramfan
                                This guy is a rebel. He thinks he can do everything on his own. Marshall is smarter and better than Steven Jackson.

                                On the 4th and 2 play, all the blockers went to the left. The play was designed to go to the left. FOR SOME REASON, Jackson decides to give up on that, and "stop", and cut back to the middle. If he just keeps going behind the blockers, he get's the first down.

                                Give him the ball? Why?

                                He needs to shut his big mouth and learn how to be a running back in this league. There have been numerous mistakes this guy has made at critical times.

                                HE SHOULD NOT HAVE REPLACED MARSHALL FAULK. He should have been the situtational guy to come in and get more experience. I hope he learns, but I'm starting to think he will just be a frustrating dissapointment.

                                We can't even trust him to follow the play call. We can't trust him to get 1 freeking yard because he will abort the play, and try to "cut back". Sure if there's a wide open hole, he looks like he could be great, but who doesn't when there's a hole?

                                Temporary Role Reversal?
                                by r8rh8rmike
                                I'm not sure if Jackson will play on Sunday, but this may be a good time to let Faulk start, and have Jackson in the supporting role. Faulk has had some pop lately and may be able to jump start the running game and get the almost non-existent short passing game going. Jackson seemed to struggle at times with the chest injury, and the lighter duty may be beneficial to his recovery.

                                What does this guy have to do?

                                Okay, he's not perfect.. He is very young and he is still learning a complicated offense. We do have some long in the tooth up front on the O-line that just don't get it done any longer.

                                But, I see posts on here about Marshall Faulk having a good day (today, versus N.O.) and Faulk should be used even more. I just don't think this jives with reality.

                                Jackson had more yards in 1 run than Faulk did the ENTIRE GAME COMBINED.

                                Jackson had 116 total yards, 2 TDs, Longest play: 43 yards


                                Faulk had 37 total yards. 0 TDs, Longest play: 11 yards.

                                I think some on here have a false sense of how good Marshall Faulk is OR are over critical of Steven Jackson.

                                To me, there's no doubt who's more powerful, more explosive, or more of a big play guy at this point in their careers.

                                .

                                Faulk still a concern for me
                                by RamWraith
                                I know there is a lot of Faulk supporters out there, but to me the guy still looks a lot like last year and I think it was a problem. He seems to lacking the initial explosion, taking forever to get moving in the backfield. When he hits the line he seems hesitant and does a lot of dancing. He is still a great receiver and a great blocke,r but I think he has lost a step or two as far as running with the football.

                                Jut my honest opinion.
