I like it when they have a RB that can run and catch as well!

JB, you've been a huge Fred Supporter from the get go. I still remember that. Over the years, Fred has been creeping up on my list of my favorite Bills players of all time. As some others have eluded to, he's a hard working, hard nosed, emotional leader that brings much more to the table than fans outside of the Buffalo fan base will probably ever realize. Some reasons I love Freddy:

His blocking skills. An underrated aspect of his game. He'll knock your block off

He once jumped into my section at a game. Guess what? I was getting a beer. At least I have this video was taken by my friend lol

Still the only player in NFL history to have a season accumulating 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards in the return game.

He's an emotional leader, and obviously loves the franchise in which he is a part of.

As it was pointed out already, he joined Thurman in the Bills 4,000-2,000 club. They're the only 2 members.

I was at the Carolina game and was able to go onto the field after the game completed. While I was out there, a man proposed to his girlfriend at the 50 yard line. It was a pretty awesome moment. After the proposal, a guy in a suit came out of the tunnel and had a football in his hands. It was autographed, and had a message for the newly engaged couple from Fred Jackson. It was a pretty awesome moment. He probably would have presented it himself if not for the pressers and what not after that finish. He's just that kind of guy.

I could go on for days with reasons why I love Freddy. Last year when the Rams visited the Bills, Fred Jackson suffered a knee injury that knocked him out for the remainder of the season. I was in the front row right behind the Bills bench, and I literally thought I was watching the end of an era. I figured he'd be done given his age and what not, but the guy is a fighter. He's tough as nails. As he was being brought off the field, I got the "Freddy, Freddy, Freddy" chant going. It was a cool moment, even though it wasn't a cool moment if that makes sense.
