The 2012 season marks the beginning of Steven Jackson's ninth season as an NFL running back. His eight years in the NFL has seen him amass 2,138 carries, 9,093 yards rushing and 60 end-zone appearances.
Not to be forgotten, he is the Rams' all-time leading rusher, he has appeared in the Pro Bowl three times and he has been selected to the NFL All-Pro team twice. All of these are great individual goals that will be forever tied to him, yet it's unfortunate that as a pro he's suffered defeat over 90 times.
When Mike Martz left town in 2005, seemingly so did all the wins. Poor drafting and poor personnel moves have plagued the Rams for the last six-to-eight years. When things fall apart and stay apart, it's hard to keep a positive attitude, but no one has done it better than Jackson.
As Jeff Fisher and Les Snead embark on a new adventure, they will be counting on Jackson if they want success to follow. So, let's take a look at what has made Steven the Rams' ultimate weapon ever since he arrived in 2004.
