Hopefully he continues to make the improvements that were starting to show at the end of last yr.
Do you keep track of the times Jackson fall down?
I'm not sure I saw a lot of it.
The R.Williams play, he slipped because Williams pushed on the back shoulder and then pulled on the arm.
In the Giants game, I know there was a bubble screen in which he stepped inside Pollard and his man. I will take a much more detail look, but I'm pretty sure that as he made a change of direction while staying low to the ground. He put a hand on the ground in the proccess, which is a technique; I don't think he slipped.
There was one play I know he fell dwn on his own, but get right up (maybe the Oakland game, maybe on a run by Mcfaden.) It wasn't a big problem as the other guys; it was a run.
I don't keep track of them; there might be one or two more?
At any rate, I've seen other guys slip on their own.
Quin at least twice for sure, Allen at least twice (in just 7 games).
I've seen McCain slipped, Pollard slipped, Wilson slipped.
I'm still not sure what was the big deal with this.
Personally, I think it was just a good joke that caught on like wild fire.
