  • did anyone else see jackson hobbling off the field?

    Can someone please explain to me what jackson is doing in the game with 3 minutes left and us down 35-6? The injury didnt look serious, looked like a little twist of the ankle, but i have been making this point all year and its just absolutely stupid to have him in the game at that point. Without jackson we are a legitimate 0-16 team and we have a very winnable game next vs detroit.

    Let hope its not serious. Its just stupid coaching.

    Coaching has been an issue all year long. :|

    Lets hope he's okay. Next week is our only shot at a win for the rest of the year.

      Makes one wonder of the Coach/Coordinators NFL IQ of this team! No reason for JAX to be in the game at that point and time. JAX (23/134 yds) Wasted effort! JAX gets RAMS in REDZONE and for some reason Darby is inserted and Rams go 3 & out! Its just not smart football!!! IF JAX can't go next week, Heads should ROLL!!!!!

        I agree and even if Jackson wants to stay in the game you have to have enough b**** to tell him he is done for the day,this team is bad and the coaching is not far behind.

It looks like Steven is the only guy on the team that is giving it his all, and I for one am happy that he wanted to go back in.
          if you find out tommorrow that he broke his ankle and is out for the season will you be just as happy ?

            I think you are missing the point as to why he is happy.

            Jackson could go down on the first offensive play from scrimmage. There are some that would argue that the Rams were going to lose this game no matter what. Hell, even bulger had a defeatist attitude going in, by saying it would take a perfect game to win.

            Along those lines perhaps Jackson should not suit up? Or maybe they should have sat Jackson at halftime, since the game was effectively over then?

              Moot point cause that didnt happen.

              Spags has already said we will be playing teams until the final second ticks off the clock, I like that jackson stayed in.

                  NFL players are competitors, so they always want to be on the field. Jack Youngblood stayed in the game when it became apparent that the Rams would lose Super Bowl XIV. How would he , or any player for that matter, be remembered if they removed themselves from games to save themselves from injury? Injuries can happen at any time of the game. I agree that the coaching staff should have removed Jackson, but you can't blame him for going in if he's not told otherwise.

                    you guys that say he should play to the end are the same ones that would be on here *****ing up a storm if he got hurt in the final 3 minutes of a 42-6 game. leaving your best player in a blowout doesn't prove anything.

                        but if he goes down on the first play from scrimmage the game isn't 42-6 with the Rams having no chance of winning,second if the coaching staff is so gung ho about this message they are sending why didn't he play in the preseason ?

                        to save him for the regular season,so why go out and take a chance of him getting hurt at that point in a blowout game when you need him next week to have any chance of winning. how does this make the team better ?

                          remember the Dallas game last season, some of us do,it can happen, I guess we are just hoping history doesn't repeat itself.

                            First off if the jackson goes down in the first play, the game is 42-0 with the rams having no chance of winning

                            Second, if you dont show fans the player they want to see and you dont show that you arent willing to fight through the end. How are you supposed to gather support for your team?

                              I understand your point and it makes sense,but real fans such as the guys on this site know that Jackson is all about fighting to the end,we all know his heart is into it and he wants to do whatever it takes,but sometimes common sense has to take over and I think most fans would realize that,but I could be wrong.

                                I've slammed Stephen Jackson hard on his slowness, his indecisiveness and his dedication to his teammates.

                                The guy does want the football.

                                He did hit the line hard and he showed this time he had the speed to get around the corner.

                                We we're coming with Jackson. We told the world Jackson was coming, and patchwork line or no Jackson produced. He carried the team when we have to keep our defense off the field. I'll get a new whipping boy.

                                Crow is better than turkey. Give me some more.

                                Steven Jackson- Fourth Quarter
                                by general counsel
                                I apologize if this thread has already been posted and if so, mods please delete it. I have been working round the clock trying to close three deals at the same time and have had almost no time to post on the board (i did watch the game sunday of course).

                                Can anyone tell me what in the world the Big Boy, bad groin and all and critical component to our offense and any shot we have of having a real season, was doing on the field carrying the ball during garbage time in the fourth quarter of a game we were losing by 30 points? Does anyone remember the debacle a couple of years back when jackson got hurt at the end of the dallas game when the outcome was long decided?

                                The risk of injury to jackson is exactly the same on every carry. Arguably higher during garbage time when players are more likely to take cheap shots. What is the point of taking that risk when the outcome is long decided?

                                It was a stupid uneeded risk by spags. I understand the point of wanting to show the team that they should play hard even though the game is effectively over. That does NOT require jackson to be on the field. Google the phrase "Accident waiting to happen" and you will see a highlight of Jackson running the ball in the fourth quarter of a 30 point game (regardless of whether we are winning or losing, the point is the same).

                                Coaches claim we dont need a better backup? Most of us think that is flat our wrong, but exposing our superstar in the fourth quarter of a 30 point game has no rationale logic to it of any kind. The NFL is a 16 game war of attrition. There is absolutely nothing the rams can prove or win by having jackson on the field in that situation. However, they have plenty to lose. An upside vs downside analysis of risk and reward dictates that he be on the bench and getting ready for san diego next week in those circumstances.

                                I can't help but root for Jackson, (with the obvious exception of when he lines up against us). He looked really solid for the dirty birds, and very likely could be the final ingredient for a successful playoff run. When it's late in the game and the Falcons need to protect a lead, Steven could be just what the doctor ordered. Teams will have to think twice before crowding the box to stop Steven, given all the other weapons the birds possess.

                                A big thank you to bill parcells for altering the balance of power in the nfc for the next ten years by idiodically passing on steven jackson. This will turn out to be the single biggest blunder of parcells career and it is already costing him big time. Jackson may have a way to go, but he is clearly a man child of epic proportions, and unless dallas is going to suit up duane thomas and walt garrison next week, he is way better than anyone they have right now.

                                Vincent Jackson anyone?

                                What do you guys think of us acquiring Vincent Jackson?

                                Hes 6'5, and has a good vertical. He gives us a deep threat, and a redzone threat. He offers a go-to-guy for Sam and is the #1 WR we've been looking for.

                                I was also thinking Stan Kroenke is coming here and is ready to turn this ship around and start winning. He has a lot of money to spend and I'm sure he is willing to spend it on a good player. There is a downside as he is suspended for 3 games.

                                I'm not sure where I land on this topic, but it makes a bit of sense and at the same time it doesn't.
