Steven Jackson, Dome Runner

S-Jax has thrived indoors throughout his career.


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?
