Fred Jackson Anyone?

Recommended Posts

I thought this thread was going to be about bringing in Fred in some sort of coaching capacity (I'd be on board with that). 

 

He was too slow to play in the NFL 3 years ago...

Any post that has a player’s name followed by. “Anyone” usually is not the player you want.

Whenever I see these posts I imagine a waiter at a fancy party walking around with a tray saying “champagne, anyone”?

I hope these Shady allegations are a bunch of BS, and all these RB threads stay purely hypothetical. That being said, if we lose Shady, even to a temporary suspension, why not Fred Jackson? He's huge with the fans, and he has a squeaky clean record, so from the PR standpoint, he's a fit. Also, he's been lighting up this flag football league he's in, only a year removed from retirement, so Freddie is staying in shape. We all know from experience that the dude can run. Even if not for a full 16 week season, a good stopgap until the suspension ends, or until we find someone more permanent. Just a thought. 

How about Thurman Thomas?  you sound like you know your football.  Perhaps you should take over as GM,

Providing the waiters are Moe, Larry, Curly and Shemp?

Stop it. He was painfully slow the last team he wore a Bills uni and that was years ago

Shite, lets go get Thurman as well!

I love the Thurmanator. But he's not in playing shape anymore like Freddie is.

People who say Fred was average are nuts lol

 

its not all about the rushing yards.. he was battling 1st round picks and splitting carries most of his career 

 

its the total body

 

He had 5 seasons with over 1000 yards from scrimmage

 

He LED the NFL in all purpose yards before...

 

He was a punt and kick returner for us at one point and a slot receiver... he even has lined up at FB

 

In 2009 he become the ONLY PLAYER IN NFL HISTORY to rush for 1000 yards and have 1000 return yards in the same season 

 

He was the best and most consistent player on our offense for a long time. NFL players and commentators have called him a star

I love Fred.

He was a very solid player.

I would say borderline star for his career, with a couple of very good years, and one standout season.

He obviously was not a true NFL superstar but he was the star of the Bills

Very fair.

I will accept that.

I loved Fred.

I've thought about "wall of fame" for him for a while.

I'd give it to him.

I'm not completely sold on it, but I also wouldn't argue if he was put up there.

The dude was a harda$$ and always gave it 150%.

I think for the next 5 yrs anytime the Bills need RB depth that fans here will be throwing Freds name in the ring.
