Dan (VA)

What do you consider the highlight of your NFL career?

Steven Jackson
  (2:19 PM)

Breaking Eric Dickerson's all time Rams leading rushing record. That was a special moment, because I know he is a very special individual in this league. He still holds a lot of records.

Jason (NC)

Steven, I think you already stack up as a hall of fame running back. Is that something that you think about at all?

Steven Jackson
  (2:20 PM)

I have those ambitions to be in Canton one day. I still think I have some work to do. I have to have some winning success on a team and continue to run hard.

Jeff (Dallas)

How are you able to stay so consistent in your career?

Steven Jackson
  (2:20 PM)

I'm always setting new goals each year. I'm pushing myself to bigger things.

Eric (New Jersey)

Is the turf in the Edwards Dome tough to play on? Does it lend itself to more injuries?

Steven Jackson
  (2:21 PM)

Turf is always a little harder than natural grass. Any time you can play on natural grass it's easier on the joints.

Evan (IL)

Is there any game that sticks out in your mind?

Steven Jackson
  (2:21 PM)

The tie against SF this past season. It felt like a heavyweight battle.

Chris (Detroit)

Steven, how will this process work for you? Will your agent talk to teams and then come to you to tell you who is interested? Will you talk to teams yourself?

Steven Jackson
  (2:22 PM)

I will my agent take the lead there. He'll talk and filter which teams will be most interested and be the best fit.

Zachary (Slinger, WI)

Hi Steven, what happens to the twitter handle if #39 is already taken by the time you sign your contract?

Steven Jackson
  (2:22 PM)

It won't go anywhere. I will keep it.

Chris Fiegler (Latham,NY)

Who is the best Running Back in the NFL that you have seen Besides yourself?

Steven Jackson
  (2:23 PM)

Adrian Peterson, I'm a huge fan of.

Dapo (Fresno, California)

Steven, What do you want be remembered for when your career is over?

Steven Jackson
  (2:23 PM)

My tough running and durability.

Brian(Santa Rosa, Ca) [via mobile]

Who are the best linebackers you have faced?

Steven Jackson
  (2:24 PM)

San Francisco has the best duo with Patrick Willis and Bowman.

David (NYC)

How much do you enjoy Twitter? Do you like being able to talk directly with the fans?

Steven Jackson
  (2:25 PM)

I enjoy social media, if handled the right way. I think most people that are in sports have to keep in mind that it's an open conversation.

Shaun (NYC)

Do you have a climate preference when choosing a team this year? GB would seems like a great fit.

Steven Jackson
  (2:25 PM)

No, I don't mind playing in the cold weather. As long as we're winning games, it won't be hard.

Willie (LA)

I'm sure you would have liked the team's record to be better, so how are you able to be consistent without the team winning consistently?

Steven Jackson
  (2:26 PM)

I always set new goals for myself. Pushing. Just trying to be a voice of inspiration. When you do that, I put the pressure on myself to be better.

Len (NY)

When you were drafted did you think that the team would have so much difficulty going forward? You had to believe you could win at least one SB trophy.

Steven Jackson
  (2:27 PM)

No, I didn't. My rookie year, we went to the playoffs. We went to the second round. I thought that would be an every year occurence. I took it for granted that's how my entire career would be.

Shaun (NYC)

What are your thoughts on Sam Bradford? He seemed to have some big moments this year.

Steven Jackson
  (2:28 PM)

I think Sam can be an elite QB. He has all of the attributes you would want from an elite QB. He just needs more explosive guys around him to fully develop into that QB we all think he can be.

Ryan Ram (Montreal)

Hey Steven, Can I have your jersey? ( best commercial ever)

Steven Jackson
  (2:28 PM)

You can have my new jersey, whenever I sign.

Alex (Anaheim)

What's your favorite road city to play in?

Steven Jackson
  (2:29 PM)

Seattle. Their crowd, the 12th man, it's all fun. Especially when it's in late December, early January.

Dapo (Fresno,California)

Do you have a pre-game routine?

Steven Jackson
  (2:29 PM)

I have a cup of coffee an hour before kickoff. The extra kick of caffeine.

Caz (Dallas)

Who is the hardest hitting defender in the league?

Steven Jackson
  (2:30 PM)

I don't get hit hard by on individual.

Zack (Ohio)

Whose hair is better besides you, Polamalu or Chris Johnson?

Steven Jackson
  (2:30 PM)

Polamalu. Without question.

Mark (Atl)

How much does winning a superbowl factor in to your selection of a new team?

Steven Jackson
  (2:31 PM)

It will have a lot to do with my decision, if those teams are interested.

Steven Jackson
  (2:31 PM)
