Marshall Faulk Disses Steven Jackson


Steven Jackson was on The Monty Show on Sporting News Radio. Asked if he was surprised Steven Jackson’s holding out, he said:

“I am surprised he’s holding out. I don’t know where he’s getting his advice. He’s played four years and he’s played every game once and he’s been hurt three times. I know if I was in the front office, even if it wasn’t Steven, even if it was someone else on another team, it would behard for me to justify giving them a lot of money, regardless if he was ‘the team’.”

“It’s just unfortunate that sometimes — and it’s happened to a lot of great players — when they play behind a player that had length and longetivity, and did it well in a way that people respect, they sometimes don’t know how to deal with it. They don’t know where to take it. And that’s one of those situations [where] he’s trying to carve a niche for himself and he wants that to be so different from me that he’s doing a lot of things that I didn’t do, but those are the things I didn’t do because you don’t need to, not because I didn’t want to.”

I still think both sides have a point in this one. However the more it drags on the more I look at Steven Jackson’s stats. Steven has three straight 1000 yard seasons, in addition he also has almost 1400 more yards receiving over that time. Add to this that in 2004 Steven had 673 yards rushing in only 134 carries. Steven Jackson is only 25 and is your best player. We once again say Sign 3 9!!!! What do you say?

    I’d hate to say this, but Faulk has a point. Health issues and a servicable history of games played should factor into contracts. Nowadays, players want to be paid based on what they MAY provide to a team and for everyone to ignore their health issues.

    Javon Walker and Mike McKenzie are good examples of that.

    Non-issue now. S-Jack is in the house and we did indeed “Sign 3 9″!!!
