Re: Falcons release Steven Jackson

Isn't there some bad ju-ju associated with SJ that despite all his 1000+ yd seasons he's never played on a team that finished better than .500? Remember when the Failclown fans were on here giddy as little schoolgirls when they got him? Yeah, those were fun times, .

While I don't really like those teams that wouldn't bug me nearly as much as him playing for the Falcons.

I usually say that the only players I can respect on the Falcons are the guys on their rookie contracts. They didn't choose to go there themselves....

Well, hopefully he'll do for those teams what he did for Can'tlanta, which is kind of "not that much", . Would be kinda' cool to bring him to the Big Easy, vault back up to the top of the NFC South and/or win a SuperBowl, breaking that unlucky career streak he's been on since day one, eh? Just to show the Failclowns how it's done when bringing in a stud RB, .

Re: Falcons release Steven Jackson

With Quinn coming in at HC I think he is going to look to draft a Lynch type of back and as much as I hate to admit this the Clowns have a chance to be scary good. They have drafted really well in my opinion over the years but haven't been able to put it together.

Always liked S Jackson...lunch pale type of guy, didn't trash talk. Was a beast in St Louie for years even though the O lines were crap. His body could be breaking down and he is 30+ years of age.

I do feel a little bad for the guy. He was a great back in his prime, just always played on a bad team.
