    S. Jackson breaks 2,000 yards from scrimmage

    KFFL
    Rams | S. Jackson breaks 2,000 yards from scrimmage
    Sun, 24 Dec 2006 21:19:12 -0800

    The Associated Press reports St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson ran for 150 yards on 33 carries and had 102 receiving yards on six catches during the Week 16 game. Jackson's 252-yard day allowed him to become the team's first 2,000-yard player since RB Marshall Faulk in 2001. Jackson became the team's only player to get 100 yards rushing and receiving in a game. With 88 catches on the season, Jackson broke Faulk's franchise record set in 1999.

    I hope the Vikings keep him in check. We have yet to give up a 100 yard game this year & there is another record at stake which has to do with the fewest yards per season average over the number of the games.

    We are at 54.5 ypg right now & the top 2 are;

    519

    Chi. Bears, 1942 - 11 games 47.2
    558

    Philadelphia, 1944 - 10 games 55.8

    We can't make the number one spot, but we can beat the Eagles 1944 record if we hold the Rams to 75 yards or less.

    I'd hate to see Jackson squash this bright spot in our season but at the same time congratulate him on his achievement.

    I agree with singers on this part.. Hopefully he doesn't ruin our chances of being an elite run defense, but in the same breath you got to congratulate him..

    Looks like he is a threat either way, so if he is going to do any damage, do it in the passing game like every other team that has played us did..

    It would really be nice to have something positive come out of this season..
