As you reflect on your professional career, what's the most memorable action you've made that you believe could have been the result of Mut 22 coins the video game?
The only thing nobody talks about, except for Denver Broncos fans is when we were in Denver and I went through their defense on one play like a hot knife through butter. It's not a boast, it's just the fact being the size I was at the time and how low I learned in college how to reach behind my pads. That means that you won't catch me upright running without pads unless there was someone 5 or 6 yards behind me trying to pursue me. When I was in the middle of traffic, in the hot of the action it only took me just one moment to understand that not running on your pads can be harmful for your health. I can't think of the name of the guy, but it was a linebacker with the Cardinals while they were in Phoenix. He blew me up. He smacked me on the 6- or 7-yard line and I was thrown off the 2. He helped me up and said, 'Hey, Bo, look, you need to help me earn my check. It's time to get faster. I'm looking at him and saying, 'You've had lost your mind. I'm not going to run into that hole any more.' The next play I bounced it off the wall and ran at my speed.
Editor's note: In the fourth quarter of the game of the Raiders against the Broncos during the week of Dec. 2 1990, Jackson ran 62 yards for a running touchdown. He broke five tackles to get to the goal line. Jackson finished the day with 13 carries for more than 117 yards with two scores.
The Denver game that I was playing when I was able to get past all the players, I ran over one of the linebackers, then jumped over someone else. If I'm not mistaken I slammed into their All-Pro linebacker, [Karl] Mecklenburg and then swept past the defensive back up to cheap Madden 22 coins his goal line. This is one of the plays that stands out to me because I was required to getting someone to miss, leap at a low angle and then run for 60 yards to score the touchdown.
