Lamar Jackson Lining Up at Other Positions During Practice

Recommended Posts

Throughout the offseason, Baltimore has been putting Flacco and Jackson on the field at the same time.

 

With Flacco playing quarterback, Jackson has lined up at multiple positions.

 

"Gosh, I sure like him out there helping us," coach John Harbaugh said of Jackson. "If you put two quarterbacks on the field at once, what options does it create for our offense? That's what we're trying to figure out."

I think it's a terrible idea for him to line up at other positions.  Yes he is a great athlete but I don't think he has the body type to take the punishment of playing wr or rb.

Well at least he only needs to remember like 5 plays and they are probably all hot route or take off and run type plays. I think this has disaster written all over it.

Im suprised that Jackson isnt bucking this a bit.....maybe after he fell just happy to be a first round pick.

 

I still think he has a chance to be good.

I like people getting creative. Also respect Lamar playing a role and seeing what it's like to be in the other positions. Earning his right to command of the squad.

I don't even think it would be for him to really play the position. It's training camp. I think it's more on how they are training him to see different views of the NFL.

The coaches are trying to motivate Flacco.  If he sees his competition maybe he will play better. /s

Maybe, but Harbaughs quote has me thinking they want to see him actually play somewhere else in order to try and gain an advantage of having two qbs on the field at once.

this is a bad idea because flacco offers no other capabilities in the game other than throwing the ball, now if they had tyrod and lamar maybe it would be harder to determine what was going on

Well probably have some trick plays lined up. It could involve him some in the season. I just don't think it would be to specifically feature him at different positions. I could be wrong.

I would agree with you on that, but who knows what they see in practice.

Probably just trying to find ways to get Flacco open in space. Put him out wide and watch him fly down the field like Peyton.....wait...maybe not.

You think?  The QBs wouldn't know what was going on.  The HC and OC obviously wouldn't know what was going on.  And the fans in Baltimore would certainly demand to know "What the hell is going on?!?!"

Before or after they ran into each other in the backfield?  LOL.

Nah, new play dynamic.  Centre snaps to QB, he and other QB play 'keep away' from defenders.  Tires out the defense.

 

EDIT:  It's also the 'counterpunch surprise' to the Bills starting Peterman on opening day.

I see it as the Ravens have a mindset of what type of QB they want and what they have. I think it's just the coaches way of teaching Larmar the offense and how to see everything. 

 

I mean maybe if you get a feel for what's going on at other positions you memorize what's going all over the field. I think it's them being more serious about a guy they want to groom.

Stupid imo.  It may help them win a few more games this year but it also puts him at risk of injury and may stunt is an growth working on different aspects, while he should be becoming the best QB he can be

Maybe they are trying to do what they did in Pittsburgh with Slash.  It was effective for a little while.

I think he is not doing well learning the playbook or looking good in practice sessions. I'm guessing they are already trying to have him learn the WR position or he's not making the 53 man roster.

Yeah, they are likely to cut their 1st round QB that they traded up for...
