I think at times the Rams relied on him way too much, and it seemed like Bulger was using Jackson almost as the "easy way out" instead of looking downfield, etc. I'd like to see the Rams spread it around more, but still give Jackson his touches... Either way this is somewhat of a silly debate because in the end, Jackson's going to have his numbers
This seems to be a common thought, and I'm not really sure why. It's like it sounds good in people's brains, but based on what we've seen the total opposite is true.
The more the Rams fed Sjax last year the better they did. They REALLY started to focus on getting him the ball at the end of the year and went on far and away their best run of the season, going 4-2 down the stretch while giving Sjax enough yards to heavily eclipse that 2500 mark.
Earlier on they were forcing the pass and struggled to win games...
