I have noticed that Steven Jackson has danced around more this year, than just running lower and still using his speed. Our run blocking has been awful this year, in my opinion. The only way Jackson gets yards is when he breaks off a 20 yard run, or 35 yard run. Really, our run game hasn't been consistent all year. This is why we are losing games. Steven Jackson is not consistently rushing, week in week out. I think that losing a good blocking tight end in Conwell, hurt us in the long run rushing.

Also, Linehan doesn't have a very creative run playbook. The run plays that he calls are so predictable at times. I know Jackson has done well in overall yards, and receiving out of the back-field. But the Rams can not run the ball consistently, and thats why we are losing games.

and i think that you are completely wrong.

the only time our run game has been bad has been inside the 20. REcent weeks has made me believe this is getting better too.

S Jackson is a stud and he is still coming into his own. He still has to learn when to just hit the hole and when to be patient.
On a similar note, there's no way he's only 231 pounds (stlouisrams.com). The guy looks like a mountain out there.

He doesn't have great instincts. He is a good RB because of physical assets alone. If he was able to "get" better instincts then he would be a true force in the league. As of now, he is a very good RB but not elite. I have no problem with having a very good RB.

LOL you've seen 9 rams games now and you think that our running game is the reason were losing?!
hahahahahaha

How is steven jackson not elite? As of now i have him at no.5 on my list of best rbs in the nfl. He has the 6th most rush yds and hes playing behind a pretty poor oline, especially when it comes to run blocking. Also, hes probably even higher up in the stats in overall yds from scrimmage. His instincts may not be great at times, but i still think steven jackson is an elite running back.

Last week was the first time I have seen him run through the hole.

If he continues to do that he will be elite.

If you're 6'2 235 and struggle to get first downs on third and one then you're not elite in my book. Those should be his bread and butter plays. His instincts, or lack thereof, hold him back from being elite. A guy like him should get 3 yards on every play, and break some long runs. However, he is inconsistent and his yards are inflated by his long runs. I'd rather have a consistent runner like LT or Portis than Jackson. That being said, I'm perfectly content having Jackson on the Rams. Our running game is the least of our troubles (see the entire defense).

IMO he is very valuble to our team. Although he is inconsistent running, he is not inconsistent in the pass game. To have 450 yards recieving for a RB after 9 games is awesome. I don't mind if he is inconsistent because our recievers are better at running deeper routes than shorter ones anyway. So if Jax only gets a yard or 2 on first, we are still in pretty good shape as long as our offensive line holds up. I agree though that he would be great if he just followed his blocks, and I saw some of that last game too. Hecontinues that trend, watch out NFL.

Well besides the obvious, our defense totally sucks.

I think that our running game could be better though.
