Jackson Vents His Frustration About the Rams Poor Start

It seems that frustration is starting to bubble over with the Rams, and now it’s Steven Jackson’s turn to start to vent:

Roughly one-third of the way through the season, Rams running back Steven Jackson ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing (451 yards) and is on pace for 1,443 yards over a 16-game season. But Jackson isn’t happy about his start in 2009. “It’s been a rough one in my opinion,” Jackson said. “I’ve yet to reach the end zone. I have two fumbles on the year. … So although I’ve been racking up yards, I’ve yet to lead this team to victory. And those kinds of mistakes that I’ve had in the last five games won’t help.” As for the team’s fumbling problems, including his two lost fumbles, Jackson said, “I think it’s one of those things where we on the field have become so conscious of it and so uptight about it that it kind of has backfired on us in the last five games. I’m going to go back to my regular routine of just playing loose, just being myself, and being a playmaker. I have never had a fumbling problem, knock on wood. And I don’t think it will be a problem.”
