If you’re interested in an unfiltered look at the Falcons through the eyes of a player, go ahead and bookmark www.sj39.com, where Falcons running back Steven Jackson provides regular blog updates.

At the end of last week’s mandatory veteran minicamp, Jackson posted about his experience with his new team so far and raved about his time in Atlanta to this point.

Here are some of the things he had to say:

Having the leadership in place that the Falcons do has made my transition a lot easier. I don’t have to be the only leader on this team. There are a lot of guys that share that role, and they’ve all made sure that I’m comfortable moving in, getting settled in and learning the way things are done around here in Atlanta. It allows me to make sure I’m doing my job to the best of my ability. Natural leaders — when the time presents itself, they show up. But it’s also important to be able to follow sometimes.

One of the guys I knew a little bit coming in was Roddy White. But working with him in this short amount of time, I can already see that he’s one of those guys that the game comes easily to him. He’s at that point in his career where veterans say things slow down for them because they know different looks, they’re smart and they’re able to read a defense as they’re doing their job. When you watch Roddy run a route, you can tell that he’s able to read coverages really well and he’s a very smooth route runner. He uses different techniques to create separation, which is why he has so many receptions every year.
