Steven Jackson said Wednesday running the ball in the NFL requires patience and commitment.
Patience can be a difficult trait for a team like the Atlanta Falcons (3-9), who are tied for the NFC's worst record as they prepare for Sunday's game at Green Bay. That's why Jackson applauded the team's commitment to the run in last weeks' 34-31 overtime win over the...

ATLANTA, GA- The Atlanta Falcons (2-9) will line up against the Buffalo Bills (4-7) at the Rogers Centre on December 1, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
As apart of the Bills Toronto Series, that started in 2008, the Bills are obligated to play at least one regular season game per year. The contract ended in 2012 but was renewed on January 29, 2013. However, not all Buffalo Bills support...
Last night’s loss to the New Orleans Saints was a heart breaker and gut puncher to Atlanta Falcons’ fans first for the simple fact that the loss came from a division rival. Second, what hurt more than being beaten by an arch nemesis is the way that they lost. The final score was 17-13 and as always the team matchup is determined by less than a touchdown. The key to the Falcons...
The Atlanta Falcons season has been a giant horse pill to swallow for fans after having so much success last season and going 13-3 during the regular season. This year, the team is 2-7 and will be lucky if they have an opportunity to win another game this season and go 3-13…the opposite of the 2012 season.

Looking at the box score from Atlanta’s 33-10 loss to Seattle on Sunday it’d be tough to tell who the runningback was that was supposed to propel the Falcon’s offense in to the stratosphere this season. Steven Jackson was expected to add a true rushing threat that the team hadn’t had since Michael Turner was in his prime. Jackson had 11 yards on 9 carries and according to...
Steven Jackson was looking forward to showing what he could do on a winning team, to really making his mark on the national stage.
It hasn't worked out as he hoped.
Not even close.
The 30-year-old Jackson is mired in the worst season on his decade-long career, and any hope he had of carrying the Atlanta Falcons to a Super Bowl title are long gone.
''It has not been...

ATLANTA, GA- As the trade deadline passed and the Atlanta Falcons refused to fold under the pretense of receiving an extra draft pick, the pressure continues to build as the Carolina Panthers prepare to greet their division rival on Sunday, November 3, 1:00 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium.
This is the first meeting between these two teams this season and now the tables have seemingly...
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. On the heels of his first October practice on Wednesday, Atlanta Falcons tailback Steven Jackson sounded as if he would attempt to play Sunday against Arizona.
In September, with Jackson nursing a hamstring injury, he wrote on his personal blog that he would not return until he was 100 percent. On Wednesday, he was asked how close he was to 100 percent.
