  • Rams' Jackson calls out Seahawks' Curry

    Rams running back Steven Jackson is an elite player, a team leader and someone who commands respect throughout the NFL.

    It's significant when someone of his stature calls out another player.

    Jackson, speaking during his weekly show on 101 ESPN St. Louis, had harsh words for Seahawks rookie linebacker Aaron Curry. The two clashed during the regular-season opener at Seattle. The NFL fined Curry for going after Rams rookie Jason Smith's knee, the first of several fines against Curry early in the season. Jackson and Curry clashed again Sunday.

    "Some guys donít know how to be pros and I feel he has not learned that yet," Jackson told 101 ESPN St. Louis. "Someone is over there not teaching him what it means to be a pro. Itís all right to jaw jack but unnecessary hits and taking shots at guys that are defenseless, or going after guys because they are high-profile guys and he is trying to make a name for himself, itís not professional."

    Jackson said he made it clear to Curry that he would not back down.

    "You donít get your name based on that because youíre going after another high-profile guy," Jackson said. "You get your name and your status because of your work and your play in it. Iím just sitting there jaw-jacking a guy and letting him know that Iím not backing down. Itís obvious Iím injured, itís obvious that I havenít practiced all week and if we want to go head-to-head for 60 or 70 plays in a row, Iím willing to do so. Iím not going to back down. Iím going to let him know thereís a whole another monster, a whole another level in the NFL and this is not Wake Forest or the ACC."

    The Seahawks selected Curry from Wake Forest with the fourth overall choice. Jackson shot down the idea that Curry was trying to play a certain way to fulfill his high draft status.

    "I donít see our rookie, No. 2 pick overall, going out and doing that," Jackson said of Smith. "It's easier to make a name in other ways than going out there jaw-jacking and trying to draw attention to yourself. Itís a professional game and this is a livelihood and I donít intentionally go out there and trying to -- Iím a pro about it. I would hope that he learns that."

    We'll probably hear Curry's side of the story when players become available for interviews Wednesday.

    Interesting read. No offense to the Seahawks, but go figure their player is, well, for lack of a better word, an ars. Practically every Seahawk fan I've ever met embodies that same persona. Sad.
    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    He is as right as it gets.

    This is going to be a fun rivalry to watch for several more years.

      I liked Curry coming out, but i realized he talks a little too much trash for my taste especially playing fro the Sea Chickens. Shut up and take your pounding rookie.

        He's not really in a position to be talking smack when our 2nd round pick Laurinaitis has virtually dominated Curry in every aspect of the game so far this season.

            I'm gonna cook up a pot of Seachicken curry for Mr. Steven Jackson tonight. Now the players are beginning to act like those idiot Shehawk fans.

              I have a feeling Curry will be eating his words for a while...

              I mean really, are you in position to talk smack when you're being pulled from the game on passing downs? You've clearly regressed and shouldn't be going after one of the best players in the league. You've earned nothing by being picked fourth.
