The other day, we tried to guess Steven Jackson's production. Today, we're going to talk about why we might have reason for optimism.
The Offical Site had a nice little write-up on Jackson's dominance in domes over the length of his career, which includes a two-game stretch in the Georgia Dome where he went off for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Jackson's game just plays well indoors, which is awfully encouraging.
Here's a couple of examples of where S-Jax has succeeded in domes:
- 172 yards and 2 touchdowns at the Super Dome in two games
- 552 yards and 1 touchdown at Arizona in six games
- 5,432 yards and 33 touchdowns in domes in total
It's hard not to think that the Falcons brought Jackson on board in part because they knew he was a nice fit for both the offense and the stadium where the team plays eight games a year. I'm fully on board with that.
How do you think S-Jax will fare at home this year?
