I dont think Sjax has 2 yrs left in him.
I think hes got 0-1 depending.
Forget the touch count total, think more about the sort of tackles hes been hit by. Those carries arent of the Chris Johnson variety (a handful of shirt, an ankle trip, or just dialled in). Dude gave 120% on every play - often through injury and often the hardest yards on a struggling team. His news ticker is pages and pages of injury notes. The guy is a warrior and i hope he goes probowl at the very least as a last hurrah - noone deserves it more.
Only way he can turn it around has nothing to do with Bradford, Pead or the pass:rush split and everything to do with Paul Boudreau.
If he can recreate something special on the OL with whats been left to him. He has a couple of semi-decent building blocks in Saffold and Smith (tho im far from convinced about the latter ... ). In 2011, those pair of tackles combined to miss a major amount of time whereas the previous season they worked fine in keeping a rookie Bradford and a plehtora of oft-injured WRs 7-9. Last year missing major time that record was much, much, much worse. Dahl was maligned as he was forced to play out of position. Not much quality behind the staretrs if they go down
If he needs more than a year to get that line clicking? Sjax is in for a long hard RB3 season and alot of pain. That said? If anyone get get that line working properly tho its him and if he does then Jackson does have great ADP value.
Going to wait till i see how the line looks in TC, but if it looks like last years (which im optimistic it wont)? Ill be taking Turner a round later instead.
Boudreau is an absolutely phenomenal coach and the best move the Rams made this past season bar none imho.
