Steven Jackson has no need for Aaron Curry's bush league, ACC crap

This is the greatest thing I've heard in a long, long time. A real pleasure to the ears for a long-suffering fan of the St. Louis Rams. You might recall in last week's game Steven Jackson had some words and moments with Seattle rookie LB Aaron Curry. Jackson called him out the radio yesterday, check it out:

Some guys don’t know how to be pros and I feel he has not learned that yet. Someone is over there not teaching him what it means to be a pro. It’s all right to jaw jack but unnecessary hits and taking shots at guys that are defenseless, or going after guys because they are high-profile guys and he is trying to make a name for himself, it’s not professional.

Amen SJ39. That's bush league stuff, and Curry doesn't have the resume - hell, Mora doesn't even play him on lots of downs - to try and confuse aggressive play with dirty play. Here's the best part:

...if we want to go head-to-head for 60 or 70 plays in a row, I’m willing to do so. I’m not going to back down. I’m going to let him know there’s a whole another monster, a whole another level in the NFL and this is not Wake Forest or the ACC.

A shot at the ACC, awesome. More than that, it's music to my hears to hear the face of the Rams out there talking tough...and having the numbers to back it up. This is what I want to hear after a game, not the we played hard and lost stuff.
