RamView: Week 17: Part 2

RB: Despite a very quiet afternoon, Steven Jackson (20-63) ended the season the leading rusher in the NFC and with a richly-deserved Pro Bowl berth. Jackson was able to get outside around right end a couple of times for nice gains and got a couple of decent gains off Randy McMichael blocks, but the 49ers dominated the line of scrimmage and Steven usually didn’t get any help up front. That resulted in some painful moments. He ran right into a blitz in the 4th for a 5-yard loss. I’ll say this: when he turned and screamed at Boller after the play, Jackson had the whole crowd behind him. The Rams blew a crucial 3rd-and-1 at the 49er 10 later in the 4th after Parys Haralson blew up the Ram line and met Jackson for another loss. This is the kind of day Jackson had: he’d try to run up the middle behind Mike Karney and gain nothing after the 49ers backed Karney up in the hole. I trust Steven will have a lot better blocking in front of him in Miami. After all the hard work he’s done this season, he deserves a nice opportunity like that to showcase his skills.
