Lamar Jackson

235 posts in this topic

He is great but I clench every time he takes off.

He isn't built for a pounding like Cam, and you see how even he is a shell of himself.

Still, a Ravens vs 9ers Superbowl rematch would be must-see tv.

Lamar Jackson is a pure indication of what an offensive coordinator is supposed to bring to the table.

Could Lamar run a regular drop back qb type system...possibly

Can he run the system they currently have in place that’s tailored to him?  You bet your buttons he can.

Coaches make a world of difference

Last year he looked like he would be another Mike Vick.  The insane improvement he made this year over last as a passer was what I hoped Mike would make every year and he never did.

On a talent scale Lamar Jackson and Michael Vick are equals and I've not seen no one else with that kind of incredible talent at the QB position. I never thought Lamar would succeed in the NFL because I didn't think his passing was that good but he's proved me wrong. It also helps that Lamar has a great work ethic and drive to apply himself and improve his craft. A lot of what happened to Vick was his own fault, but some of it was Blank's fault. Firing Reeves and hiring Mora was the worst thing Blank could have done for Vick's career. It's not a surprise to me that Vick's best 2 years came under disciplinary type coaches of Dan Reeves and Andy Reid. They held him accountable. Mora just wanted to be Vick's best buddy. There was no accountability there.

A Ravens vs. Niners Super Bowl would be incredible.

Lamar still has a long way to go for a passer. Nobody can stop the ravens run game.

Have you watched him this year?  I didn't think he would be relevant in 3 years after watching him last year, I didn't think there was any chance would be able to make the jump he did year over year.  He has been the best running threat and went from 58% completion on 7.1 yards per attempt to 66% completion on 8.1 YPA.  He's made a HUGE jump this year, and this game is only going to jump those numbers some more.

I am so jealous of Lamar Jackson. He's everything Michael Vick should have been.

This is only his second year. Everyone was hyped on Cam and everyone was hyped on RG3. Let him take a few hits like Cam has and let’s see how he holds up. All it takes is a few good hits to the head. Talk to me about Lamar Jackson in 2 or 3 more seasons.

Hot take: 49ers shut them down on Sunday.

So just watching this game, his receivers get a lot of space. I haven’t seen him have to thread the needle yet. His receivers get a ton of separation.

Not doubting the guy, but remember RG3 and Kaep took the league by storm for 1 season. I want to see multiple season os sustained success

Not even close to the same scale as those guys mentioned and you're crazy if you think the 49ers shut down the Ravens on Sunday. The 49ers defense couldn't even shutdown rookie coach and QB Kyler Murray.

His best receiver is a tight end in Mark Andrews. His best actual wide receiver is a rookie. C'mon dude, give the guy some credit.

 Either way he is hitting them in stride and throwing them open instead of into coverage.  It would be different if they were open and had to stop and wait for the ball or something.  He would be hitting those throws if someone had better coverage.
