  • Steven Jackson

    I thought Steven Jackson was going to carry the load?

    16 rushing attempts?

    ZERO....ZERO receptions....only thrown at once I think?

    Re: Steven Jackson

    Spags may be a newcomer to the role of head coach but do you think that he's naive enough to let our opponents know our gameplan in advance? When it was reported that Jackson would be the focus of our offence, I always suspected that it was a smokescreen: SJax is our most high-profile player these days and most in the NFL would consider it logical to give our best player the ball as often as possible. I think that Spags is a bit more canny than that, however, and fully expect to see him develop an all-round attack in which the run and the pass are given equal footing.

      I understand where you're coming from, but Jax has got to get the ball more for us to be successful. There's no 2 ways about it. How successful we are on offense this year is going to be directly related to how well Jax is doing.

      Stats can be deceiving. I understand why we didn't run it more. If you look at the stats Jax had 4.5 ypa. But in reality he was getting stuffed all day long. He had one nice run towards the end of the game that inflated his stats a little. The fact is we need to play better up front.

      Did it look like he was dancing too much to anyone else? It looked to me like he was doing the old Barry Sanders instead of just putting his head down and hitting the hole hard. It looked like he was taking a stutter step right after receiving each hand-off. On his one big run he didn't dance at all, he just charged the line. He needs to get back to doing that.

        IMO you need to get him the rock, no matter how! SJ is a stud of studs who plays with heart and fire. Spread the field even if it means putting kickers out there as WR's and let SJ do his thing. I think the play calling left a bit to be desired.

          For the time being at least, Jackson IS our offense. Whether it's by running the ball, or throwing him the all, he needs to be the core of our offense. I liken him to Matt Forte of the Bears last year where he was their leading rusher and receiver. And, just like us, the Bears lost because they got away from the run and didn't throw the ball to Forte.

          Yes, teams are going to load up against us with 8 in the box, daring us to throw, and at times we should, but that doesn't mean we can get away from getting the ball to our best playmaker in Jackson. We need to get him 20+ touches a game at least until our receiving corps grows up and into a credible threat. That day is coming, but until then, we need to depend upon Jax and the offensive line to create some space for him.
          I believe!:ram:

            Given that:

            (a) Jackson averaged 4.2 yards per carry; and

            (b) He would have averaged more had his longest run of the game not been nullified by penalty,

            I'd say he should get the ball more.

            A lot more.

              Bingo Av. You nailed it on the head. And when we get down in the second half and we have to pass, pass him the darn ball! The man is killer in open space.

                We can't really say that. His longest run of the game was made possible by the penalty.

                  holding happens on almost every play though. Patriots are famous for getting away with bloody murder on this penalty. Depends if it gets called or not.

                  i think the offensive line has to gel. then maybe we will start being a great football team. But a passing attacks best friend is a good running game. SJ all day.

                    by sosa39rams
                    Some say he has lost a step, he is slower, he goes down to easily, and just isn't the same back that he used to be. If this is true, shouldn't we go out and acquire a new back? Well, none of us can prove that this is true.

                    Anyways, he isn't doing great this season. I am not too sure whether its him or the porous play by the offensive line; specifically Adam Goldberg.

                    So here is my question. Do you guys think we should trade him? He will be a free agent in a few seasons, and is only decreasing year after year. I am not too sure where I stand on this topic but in a couple years we will probably get nothing for SJAX. I would prefer to keep him though. He is the soul and heart of this team, and has done tons for this organization.

                    Also, what offers do you guys believe we would get? I'd assume somewhere like 2nd-4th ...most likely being a 3rd.

                    Steven Jackson THE PREDATOR!!!
                    by Guam rammer
                    Normally, players come up with their own names or the team starts it off but there isnt anything that has popped up so maybe the Ram nation can come up with something to label our star RB. Dude needs a name. His play and the way he looks when he runs with his dreds flopping all over the place reminds me of the predator. Thoughts?

                    Which Jackson will show up
                    by psycho9985
                    I'm not on the stephan Jackson band wagon,sure the guy gets yardage,but I'm not seeing it when the chips are down.I dont like the way he hops and skips around trying to find a hole,why cant the guy just run the play called.
                    I know our offensive line is in not so great shape right now,but I hope the coaches are talking to him.He needs to play smash mouth football.Jackson is big enough and strong enough to be a fullback and I wish he'd run with power at the line of scrimmage.Marshall faulk has the speed and moves to skip around and blast through a hole in the line,but Jackson doesnt.

                    Calvin Johnson, Steven Jackson or Terrell Owens: Who is the most talented player wasting away on a last-place team?

                    PRISCO: It's Steven Jackson -- by a big margin. Have you seen the numbers he's putting up for that bad St. Louis Rams team? He's having a huge season, and nobody is paying attention. Jackson has 915 yards rushing, is averaging 4.8 per rush and has 33 catches. He's doing it on a team that doesn't have great players outside in the passing game. That means teams can load up to stop the run. He sees a lot of eight-man fronts. That can make it tough to run, but Jackson keeps putting up big numbers. In talking to some of the defensive players around the league, they rave about Jackson. He's a load to tackle and he plays hard all the time. I think the respect for Jackson is going up this year more than ever. He's a great player on a bad team. You wonder what he'd be like if he played on a good team, one with a passing game.

                    JUDGE: Steven Jackson. A few weeks ago we were asked to choose the best running back not named Adrian Peterson. I would like to amend my answer and say Steven Jackson. I can't fathom how he is doing what he is doing this season, and what he is doing is just about everything. He is the NFL's third-leading rusher, behind Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson. He averages five yards a carry. He has three straight 100-yard performances. He's the Rams' leading receiver. Basically, he does it all, and he does it with a bad football team beginning to show signs of life because ... well because Steven Jackson is carrying the Rams. Frankly, I don't know how he motivates himself, but he does. And he's doing it right. Imagine what happens if and when St. Louis surrounds him with talent. The guy already is a load. When opponents have to concentrate on others he'll be the NFL version of a nuclear weapon.

                    by supachump
                    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm really tired of seeing Jackson take a couple of steps and then a stop before running again. He is losing all momentum and is only hurting his running game.

                    Help me understand. Does he believe that he is faking out would-be-tacklers? If so, it isn't working very often.

                    It is almost comical at times. He takes a few steps, jumps up and lands on both feet and then decides which way to go. Stop it!

                    This guy is big and powerful, he needs to just run full speed into people -bowling them down like pins, not slow down and give the defense a better opportunity to pull him down.


                    You are hurting yourself and helping the defense. STOP IT!!!
