(FootballSTL) -- Okay, now I can write Steven Jackson’s Rams epitaph.

I’ll be brief and succinct in my farewell. What he accomplished on mostly bad football teams is remarkable. He’s one of six backs in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in eight straight seasons. It speaks to his talent, toughness, durabilty, and preparation.

Do you think the Rams will miss Steven Jackson? Share your thoughts.

It has been a privilege for me to descibe every carry, reception and block of his Rams career.

My favorite Jackson game? Easy. His performance at Detroit in 2009. He put his team on his back and kept the Rams from living in infamy by going 0-16. I’ll miss seeing him drag tacklers for extra yards and hammer blitzing linebackers and safeties.

The Falcons just added another weapon to an already filthy, nasty offense. I wish Steven well. He has been the definition of stand-up guy.
