How much do you know about one of the Rams all-time greatest players?

Steven Jackson turns 40 next month and he made it across some feeds this week with a highlight reel of his greatest plays while with the St. Louis Rams. A first round pick in 2004 out of Oregon State, Jackson is one of many former Rams who seem locked into the “Hall of Great” instead of the “Hall of Fame” but that doesn’t take anything away from his accomplishments.

How much do you know about Steven Jackson? Test yourself today without cheating.

I’ll post some poll questions with multiple choices and then reveal the answers next. It’s up to you to cheat, I guess, but see if you just know the answer by heart or are a very good guesser.

Steven Jackson, All-Pro

Jackson topped 1,000 rushing yards eight times in his career, but in one particular year he led the NFL in total yards and was named a second-team All-Pro. What year was that?

Bonus: Can you name one of the two running backs who did make first-team All-Pro over Jackson that year?

Steven Jackson’s lone pass attempt

Jackson only threw one pass attempt in his career, a touchdown.

Where were you when Jackson threw his touchdown pass? Let us know in the comments.

Hall of Fame, Rushing Yards

Steven Jackson is 18th all-time in rushing yards and 15 of the 17 players ahead of him are in the Hall of Fame. One of those two players is not yet eligible for the Hall of Fame, whereas the other hasn’t been elected yet and like Jackson, may never get into Canton. Who is that player?

Bonus: Which of these Hall of Fame running backs has FEWER yards from scrimmage than Steven Jackson?

Steven Jackson’s best single season

Jackson holds a few lesser-known NFL records for running backs or unique accomplishments. Can you name them?
