NFL Injury Report:
Though he’s only 29 years old, St. Louis Rams running back
Stephen Jackson discussed retirement with reporters yesterday, reports Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
“I’ve always thought about it from day one,” Jackson said,
via comments distributed by the team. “I’ve always thought about what my
exit strategy is going to be. If I had to write my story, I’d rather go out
like Barry Sanders — wanting people to want more than to leave too late.”
Still, Jackson said that he wants to continue playing for
the Rams, as he’s impressed by what coach Jeff Fisher has brought to the
organization. Jackson sees a bright future for the team and said he’d like to
be a part of it.
Florio believes there is a good chance Jackson will return
to St. Louis next season as long as he and the Rams work out a contract that
properly reflects the running back’s value. While 30 isn’t old in the
traditional sense, it tends to represent a wall of sorts for running backs.

Balzer adds that Jackson has his eyes set on becoming a top 10 all-time rusher and finishing out his career with the Rams.

I have a lot of respect for the Rams/49ers rivalry, but the divisional rival I hate the most is the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams have never beat the Seahawks twice in the same season, but the Rams haven't lost a divisional game this season.We already know that Steven Jackson is going to have his 8th straight 1,000 yard game season. He's only 10 yards away! We also know that...

Seattle (10-5) finds itself 1/2 game out of the division but would need a 49ers loss to the Cardinals in order to claim the NFC West. St. Louis (7-7-1) has paid good football at times but a four game losing streak in...

St. Louis Rams (7-7-1) at Seattle Seahawks (10-5)
Everyone knows about the Seahawks’ home prowess, but it’s really, really significant, possibly even more than people realize. At home, they are 47-20 ATS since 2005, including 6-0 ATS as double digit favorites and 16-3 ATS as touchdown plus home favorites. For contrast, they are 24-43 ATS on the road in that same time period....
