SJ Is Here To Stay (at least for 2012)

The trade deadline has come and gone and Steven Jackson remains a Ram.  He became the Rams starting running back in 2005.  That year Jackson had 1,046 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns on 254 attempts, and caught 43 passes for 320 yards and 2 touchdowns.  In 2006 the Rams had a more balanced offensive attack and Jackson ran 346 times for 1,528 yards and 13 touchdowns and led all running backs when he caught 90 passes for 806 yards and adding 3 touchdowns. He also led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage with 2,334. In addition, Jackson was named to his first Pro Bowl (selected again in 2009 and 2010) and was named the Rams MVP of 2006.  Every year since he became a starter in 2005, SJ has rushed for more than 1,000 yards (he did it last year and he’ll probably do it again  this year).  In 2010  Jackson surpassed Eric Dickerson as the Rams’ all-time leading rusher and recorded his 10,000th career yard from scrimmage.  Certain to be a future HOF member, Jackson still has more miles left in him and we’re excited he’s remains a ST Louis Rams!!!

Go Steven Jackson!  Go Rams!!!

    I bet people thought Archie Manning was an HOF shoe-in as well. I think SJ deserves it, but have to wonder if the Rams records for those years could keep him out.

      Good point Mike. Winning sways alot of judgements as I believe Joe Montana was overrated in many cases. But the Super Bowl victories, due in part to HOF receivers, aided his ‘legend.’ Many QB’s did as much on poor/average teams.
      Makes for a good debate…..
