STEVEN JACKSON NEWS

Which offensive lineman do the St. Louis Rams need to grab in free agency?

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

New Jags offensive coordinator Olson focused on developing Bortles

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – When the Jacksonville Jaguars hired Greg Olson to replace Jedd Fisch as their offensive coordinator, it struck some people as strange on a couple of levels. A quarterbacks coach and assistant coach for the Jaguars when they went 2-14 in 2012, Olson was not retained by Gus Bradley as part of a staff where Fisch assumed a prominent role. Two years later, Olson...

Top 10 Deep Keeper League Players For 2014

Future StudFirst, a quick point. The very best keepers in 2014 are strongly going to resemble the best keepers in 2013.

Top 5 St. Louis Rams fantasy sleepers

The Rams have become a team who, in recent years, have had a list of fantasy-caliber players that has read, from top to bottom: Steven Jackson And that’s it. With leagues beginning to reconvene from a months-long drought of (sometimes) friendly trash talk, one of the things that I love and hate the most in this world is now right around the corner. Now, the Rams do have a trio...

Top 5 boom or bust St. Louis Rams players

With training camp less than two weeks away, there are a handful of players on the Rams roster that will look to elevate their respective games to ensure a spot on the 2014 roster. Beyond that, they’ll want to have an even greater impact on the season as a whole after performing below expectations in the past few seasons. With that said, our weekly Top 5 attempts to rank the players...

Can the St. Louis Rams’ running game help elevate the rest of the offense?

The St. Louis Rams’ offense hasn’t been the strong suit of the team since the days of “The Greatest Show on Turf”—and that is putting it lightly. Steven Jackson’s streak of eight consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons could not make up for the lackluster passing attack. Moreover, even when Jackson was performing at his best, the team struggled to get the ball into the...

What will the St. Louis Rams’ running back rotation look like?

From 1999 through 2012, the St. Louis Rams experienced the height of success and the nadir of failure. Those years provided a Super Bowl victory (2000) and another NFC championship (2002); but also included a three-year stretch in which the team won a combined six games (they bottomed out at 1-15 in 2009). Through all the years, the good and the bad, running back offered consistent...

Here are the players the St. Louis Rams could have drafted the past 10 years

Not too long ago, our Ted Bryant took the liberty of re-drafting the top 5 worst positional draft mistakes committed by the Rams over the past few years. It was a fascinating – and, let’s face it, depressing – look at how the Rams could have avoided their terrible 15-65 pitfall from 2007-2011. Not to bring this up again, but I feel compelled to take this a step further today...

Take a break from the mock drafts, and let’s talk St. Louis Rams fantasy football!

While the coaches and scouting staff at Rams Park continue to evaluate free agents and prepare for the upcoming draft in May, the only thing us outsiders can do at this point in the year is speculate as to what additions will be made to our teams and how they will affect our team’s level of play. It’s all very much out of our control. However, one thing you can control as a fan...

St. Louis Rams: 5 Biggest Draft Day Regrets in Franchise History

We could make the case and label nearly every first-round pick of St. Louis a bust, with the exception of Orlando Pace, Steven Jackson and Torry Holt ... and maybe Sam Bradford. But if we did that, this article would be no fun. The Rams have had some really good success when the team the team was in Los Angeles, but the move may have provided some bad karma or something when it comes...

Each Friday, we’re going to take a quick look at a former Ram who has recently played for the team and see what he’s up to now.

Hell, you know what Marshall Faulk and Steven Jackson are doing these days – but what about Brian...

Should the Rams draft one of the top 10 running backs to pair with Stacy?

As many problems as the Rams have had over the past 10 years, the one position where they’ve been consistently above-average, if not excellent, is running back. After bidding adieu to longtime Ram Steven Jackson, the Rams discovered a diamond in the rough in rookie Zac Stacy last season. Stacy nearly broke the 1,000 yard barrier despite starting just 12 games and projects as the...

ST. LOUIS (AP) Zac Stacy needs 42 yards to follow in Steven Jackson's footsteps and give the St. Louis Rams a 1,000-yard rusher in nine straight seasons. If he reaches that milestone in the season finale at Seattle, the rookie will decide how to reward his offensive linemen. "I think the O-linemen are more excited about it than I am," Stacy said Thursday. "My whole mentality is just...
