I stumbled upon this fact while checking how close Sjax was to 10,000 yards, Jones will become the 25th 10k rusher. Of the 24 currently on the list 3 Rams hit 10k in their careers; Dickerson, Faulk, and Bettis. Yes most of Bettis' yards came as a Steeler but im sure many of you have him as one of your favorite backs of all time. The bus rolled the Rams harder than any team during the 90's and he alone made Kordell Stewart look like an NFL QB. The next behind Jones is Clinton Portis at 77 yards then the next likely player to hit 10k would be Jackson at 7,788.
Steven Jackson may end his career with 10,000 yards rushing and with that he will have done it in the hard way. To this point he has been to one playoff game which was his rookie season in 2004. After the organizations collapse he continued averaging 20 carries a game through some of the worst in franchise history. He has never spoken out against the Rams organization and has always appeared upbeat, even during miserable losing seasons. Steven Jackson will hopefully retire a Ram and with that he will take his place as the greatest St. Louis Ram.
The LA Rams have the fearsome foursome, Eric Dickerson, Crazy Legs, Van Brocklin, and I could go on for a bit. When you talk St. Louis Rams you think Bruce, Holt, Warner, Pace, and Faulk. I would put Bruce above Jackson but when the Rams were the Lambs in the mid-90's Bruce had a string of mysterious hamstring injuries. He may have been actually hurt but in all likely hood he didnt want to deal with the losing, plus he was a Niner. Holt was a product of the system, Warner fell in love with Arizona and beating the Rams, Pace was an incredible LT but he was Albert Haynesworth-esk, and Faulk was an unbelievable all purpose back but Sjax gets the nod for the reasons above.
Possibly rediculous for some to believe but the day he hits 10k he will become the only Ram of the other 3 in the 10k club to do it exclusively with this franchise.
