Or maybe its because Marshall Faulk is a lock for the hall of fame and Steven Jackson is one of the best rookie backs this year?
obviously he should be behind faulk, but to put a rookie in front of him, especially when the rookie was a holdout initially, says alot to me. dont get me wrong, i would pick him up if i had roster room, but i expect more of a rbbc approach since gordon has not proven he can be a 25 carry a game back.
Jackson did not hold out. He missed the first practice or two and Martz appeared to be a little pissed. Given Gordon's history and Jackson's missed practices I had Gordon penned as the backup. I kept preaching how Jackson was not the backup and that those who draft him as a handcuff will be dissapointed.
But then Gordon found chips in his ankle and was sidelined for several weeks. During his missed time Jackson excelled and proved that he can be a future stud.
This is why Gordon was the #3.
