    Loved T-Jack. He never quit on a play.

      TJack was they type of player who always seemed to play 110% and never take a play off. However, IMHO he seemed to get into Chamblin's dog house quite regularly for some reason.
      ZC gets another chance to feed cram sammiches!

        Great pro and a big part of the 2013 Grey Cup run as a DB. Underrated there I think. 2nd all-time in kickoff returns is no joke either. Big fan. Congrats!

          I wouldn't hold that against him. Congratulations to T-Jack on his retirement!

            Always a big fan of his - remember he lit up an Edmonton receiver (Tucker maybe?) in a preseason game. Also remember him lighting a guy up and forcing a fumble, and he was too busy celebrating his hit to notice the fumble. He could hit damn hard for a little guy.

              What I loved is that he could deliver some solid hits, but he was also a reliable tackler. Sometimes guys are always looking for the big hit and have suspect tackling ability, which leads to highlights but also frustration. Jackson was one of the few guys who seemed to know when he could deliver the big hit and when to just make the sure tackle. He was pretty solid against the run for a cornerback.

                I remember that. We ended up losing the game and he was celebrating like we won the grey cup. That being said he was a great player and one of my favorite riders while he was here.

                  Can you imagine how good Duron Carter would be if he had T-Jack's tenacity and drive? He'd be in the NFL right now, and would be prominent imo.

                    Loved him being a Rider! Man, watching some of those highlights really brings me back to some good times in Rider Nation. Although those tramp stamp uniforms were never my favourites.

                      DC needs 20% of TJax drive and he would never have seen 110 yard field. Tallent 100%, Drive 10%.

                          Probably for being bad at math

                            Our dear alumnus Clamps (the great Wayne Shaw) would likely agree with you. Clamps is big on wrapping up
