  • Should we trade SJ for both our sakes?

    If we trade him what kind of picks could we get for him? He is an awsome talant but we need so much as a team. Could we do like a Hershal Walker kinda trade ?

    This is just my opinion. I have no sources to quote so take it for what it is worth.

    Steven Jackson doesn't want to be traded.

    I think when he puts on the Rams uniform it means something to him. I don't think you can say this about most big name players anymore.

    He doesn't deserve to be traded away... he deserves to have a great team built around him.

    I mean no disrespect to Faulk or the gang but no player has had to work so damn hard to be so damn good surrounded by so much damn bad.

    Keep Steven Jackson and give him the support he needs.

      Re: Should we trade SJ for both our sakes?

      We've had several threads on this in the past and the general thought is most fans would rather keep Jax than give him up for trade bait. One he is the only real draw that makes fans and the media notice the Rams at the moment. The other reason is that you would be hard pressed to find a dance partner to do the deal with. IMO we should look to get Jax some help, he is on a pace for 350 carries right now and history show that when a back carries the rock that many times in a season it greatly reduces his carreer.

        The Rams should settle for nothing less than a trade on the level of the Herschel Walker deal, and no NFL GM is going to be stupid enough to agree to such a deal. We'll keep Jackson and make do with what we have.

          The question may be "Should we sit Steven Jackson for the rest of the year rather then risk further injury?"

            I think so. He has proven enough this year...

              Let's be reality. Steven Jackson is not going to sit out the rest of the season. He loves football too much.

                From STL post Dispatch Bernie M;

                The Status of Steven Jackson: I was surprised to see Jackson still in there late in Sundayís game, still getting slammed around in a lost cause. He has an aching back, and heís taking a beating. Is it time for some common sense to come into play here? As Bill Coats reported in Mondayís Post-Dispatch, Jackson has a herniated disc. I donít think this is a minor condition. Jackson is on a pace for 350 carries this season. Thatís a lot. I did some quick research, and since the start of the 2000 season an NFL back has reached 350 carries in a season only 20 times. And some of the guys on that 350 list broke down or burned out earlier than expected in their careers ó including Shaun Alexander, Rudi Johnson, Ahman Green, Stephen Davis, Deuce McAllister, Edgerrin James, Eddie George. Some fine running backs there. But they all seemingly lost it in a hurry. The latest example is Larry Johnson, who had 336 rushing attempts in 2005 and 416 rushes in 2006 for the KC Chiefs. Heís never been the same and hasnít come close to gaining 1,000 yards in a season after being used so much. The question is this: especially considering that Jackson is injured, does it make sense to keep pushing him in such vigorous fashion? We all wanted Jackson to be a workhorse. We all wanted him to be the centerpiece of the Rams offense. And he is. SJ39 has earned a lot of respect this season for playing hard, playing hurt, and never letting up even though the Rams are 1-12 and hopeless. But what about 2010 and beyond? It would be a shame to have Jackson come out of this season in bad shape for the future. I hope the Rams know what theyíre doing.



                Sit SJ39 for better days.

                  I truly respect Sjax, so much that i would leave it to him.
                  If it was up to me i would walk up to him, and ask him do you want to be traded?
                  If he wanted to i would shop him and try to get him on the team with the best chance to win. If he didnt the issue would be dropped forever.
                  I truly dont think he wants to be traded away from the rams though. I really think he loves this team.

                    No way. Best back in the league, by far.
                    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

                          Why,why,why, did we not trade Jackson?
                          by BEER
                          I said three years ago we needed to trade Jackson for the reason of worth. Now I see I was wrong. The reason, our Gm, Vp, Hc, dont know how to pull in talent. It sucks that jackson could have had a superbowl or superbowl chance with someone else. I hope that when he does go elsewhere he does get the ring he deserves. I was hated on then for posting we need to trade him and let him move on back then, o well, lets see if a new regime can change our bad habits. Rams moving forward, I hate to look back.

                          Coaches Assure Jackson he was not on the trade block

                          Per rotoworld, so as always, take it as it is:


                          The Rams front office spoke to Steven Jackson before the trade deadline to assure him they never considered moving him.
                          The rumors that Jackson was on the block were way off base. The Rams just wanted to assure their best player that he'll be the face of the franchise for the rest of this season and beyond.

                          Good to know he was never being considered as trade bait. We don't need him thinking negative things about the organization.

                          Should we trade for Peyton Hillis?
                          by sosa39rams
                          They said the next thing he does is request a trade because of the lack of interest the Browns are showing in re-signing him.

                          Should we trade for him? What do you think the asking price is? SJAX is clearly slowing down. I'd do it if it was cheap, other than that I'd pass.

                          An appeal to trade for Vincent Jackson.
                          by DPskywalker
                          ...I am very, very sorry to pull this mean prank, but there was a reason for it, and that is this:

                          Every single one of you VJ detractors was rock hard when you read that. And you should be....It's EXCITING.

                          It would make Sam Bradford, SJax, and Shurmer much better overnight...and over that same night, our division seems to be getting worse, and worse.

                          Last thing: We were a play away from winning both of those games. We are 2-0 if he were a Ram (and was on the field) right now.

                          2-0 or 0-2. Many of you asked how many games a year he adds to our win total. Well, after two games played. It's two games!

                          Realistically, do we have anything we can trade to a contending team for a draft pick?

                          I am all about playing for the future right now but i cant think of anything we have off the top of my head that anyone would trade for that we wouldnt want to keep for next year. We arent going to get anything for glover, chaveous, mccollum, dante hall (injured)
