With already nine years of wearing-and-tearing on him, it looks like father time will be getting to Steven Jackson pretty soon now. This hasn’t been much of a season to remember for the 29-year-old so far this year, only having 380 rushing yards and one touchdown, with only 3.8 yards averaged per carry.
With the emergence of the passing game and the existence of one-man running back going extinct, it’s hard for Jackson to get back to where he once was. Now, he’s sharing carries with Doug Richardson, who hasn’t been too shabby so far this season, already have been starting some games over the veteran a few times this year.
According to ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter, a number of teams have called on the St. Louis Rams for a possible trade. Multiple teams, according to league sources, have called on Jackson. However, it doesn’t look like the Rams will be shopping Jackson, or any other player, but they will be listening to offers.
Many have rumored that the Green Bay Packers look like the most interested, as they literally have no one to run the ball now after the injury that happened to Cedric Benson. The Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers have also possibly inquired about Jackson with injuries to their running backs.
It makes sense with the trade deadline approaching, but I don’t see the Rams jumping the gun at all. With Jackson most likely entering the free agency market after this season, that would be the best bet of him leaving the franchise.

I talked about Sam Bradford as being one of the quarterbacks to watch this year, in our QB Edition of TTR’s Players to Watch. I am hoping that he will return to the promising form he showed as a rookie, but last year he clearly regressed. I mentioned that the beating he took was clearly taking a toll [...]

The Packers saw Steven Jackson rush for 57 yards and a touchdown against them on 12 impressive carries in Week 7. Now they have until Thursday before Week 9 to decide whether they want to acquire the Rams' star for their own backfield for the rest of the season.

'Tis the season for amped-up speculation, drawn out that much more by an extended trade deadline. [That] leaves us 48 extra hours to ponder the silly idea that the Rams have placed Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson on the trading block and can't wait to dump him on anyone who calls. Well, technically, Jackson is on the trade block. Then again, who in the NFL isn't...
The toughest part of New England's trip to Old England might have been getting home, and even that journey wasn't as rough as feared.

If the Rams fans weren't constantly wishing that Brady got injured, it'd be easy to feel bad for them. At first they blame the refs, but after awhile they just indulge in the booze. This was a good beatdown of an inferior team, maybe the first complete game we've seen from the Patriots all year. The Rams were also ticked off that the Patriots were running up the score...
I am having Déjà vu. Upon completion of my research, I have written this preview before. See if any of this sounds familiar. The Rams need to be able to run the ball, or at least threaten the run to have offensive success. Turns out, the Patriots strength on defense is against the run. They are 8th against the run, allowing only 86 yards a game.
The Patriots weakness...
I learned two things while watching the Rams at a Dave & Busters with my family and a group of Rams fans. 1: The amount of time it takes for the D&B sensory overload to reduce my four-year-old son to be reduced to a quivering puddle of nerves and tears is approximately two hours. 2: The amount of time it takes for Tom Brady and the Patriots to do the same to the Rams defense...
It was a great game for the New England Patriots but a horrible game for the Saint Louis Rams. The Rams have had a lot of trouble beating the Patriots since the Super Bowl loss to them and today was no exception. The final score of the game was 45-7. The Rams actually did dominate the ball. The Rams had the ball for 31:06 while the Patriots had it for just under 29 minutes...
Four possessions, four touchdowns for the Patriots in the first half. New England leads St. Louis 28-7 at the break in London. Shane Vereen scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to give the Pats a 14-7 lead. With 6:51 left in the second quarter, Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski for a 7-yard touchdown. Gronk celebrated London style, by imitating a British Royal Guard march...
