The St. Louis Rams aren't running the ball very well right now, to understate the problem. Why is that? Well, that's the $64,000 question. Obviously, the team wasn't as prepared as they thought to let Steven Jackson walk this year. Speaking of SJ39, how about a little trivia?
Do you who the last St. Louis player to top the 100-yard rushing mark in a game was, besides Jackson?
Last Rams RB not named Faulk or Jackson to rush for 100+ yds in a game was Brian Leonard Wk 5 2007. Since 1999 64 100+ yd games from RBs— NFLN_Playbook (@NFLN_Playbook) October 2, 2013
Ah, Leonard, the Rams' other second-round running back that didn't work out very well. Funny how history has a way of repeating itself.
Okay, another Cliff Claven nugget of fact for you, a happier one. Guess who leads the NFL in tackles since 2009? I'll give you one guess. Got it?
Since 2009 James Laurinaitis leads all NFL LBs in TKLS w/ 451. Great name/great player— NFLN_Playbook (@NFLN_Playbook) October 2, 2013
