....interesting.....there were TBD pundits fine with taking Jackson at #12......hard pass for me...just do not see it....could be woefully wrong, but I see "one read and run"....

I always like a QB to be drafted within one point of his Wonderlic score!!

The comparison is being made because they are both 2nd year QBs who are “dual” threats running and passing. No one knows who will be the better QB yet. 


Umm, I do. I will be shocked if Lamar Jackson winds up having a better NFL career than Josh Allen. 

If you don’t think John Harbaugh would trade Jackson for Allen straight up, right now, you’re fooling yourself.

Jim Kelly? 🤔

 

and I had Jackson and Allen tied in their draft when they came out.  Both super talented, both have some flaws.  Pretty stupid to make any concrete judgements right now but I will say Jackson has made some questionable off the field things that makes me wonder.  

 

But Roman is the right OC (and very underrated here) for him.

Allen is going to be better and last longer. Jackson is much more frail in his lower half whereas Allen is thick and trunky.

 

And Jackson is not a natural passer. His delivery is just so awkward. True running back playing QB. He has a lot of work in the passing game to do than Allen. 

 

And I think Allen is the better runner, anyway.

Jim Kelly's Wonderlic Test Score

 

I'm with you man, Jim was within one, taken 14th overall.

but, he said within one point, was my point is all. I knew Lamar was at 13. Jim had a 15, within one point, drafted 14th overall.

Jackson is dumb as a box of rocks. For God's sake he didn't realize that a new coordinator meant a new offense. Great athlete, never going to be a great QB. I would be surprised if he's still the starter in Baltimore by the end of his rookie deal.

I don't hate Lamar Jackson, but Josh Allen has so much more than Jackson in the way of tools to be a great QB, comparing the two is just silly.

If Josh Allen and the Bills simply win games - who cares about any of this nonsense?  JA has had a low completion percentage and maybe always will.  He might also bump it up a few percentage points and win games.

Probably to fall back on reasons to boast we got the right quarterback even if we do poorly. Basically feels like a big motivation on the board this offseason.. proving who drafted the right quarterback in 2018. Josh Allen's a gamer. I can see it, I think we all do. We get the right team around him he can win a lot of games in his career. But I'm not sure his full impact is going to show up the box score every Sunday and it's going to drive people crazy trying to tangibly prove he is better than Darnold, Rosen, Jackson, and co.

I’m not surprised he wasn’t on their board. I think Beane likes prototypes in terms of size and Lamar isn’t that.

If he wanted LJ he woulda just kept Tyrod. 

 

Very similar QBs. And I think Tyrod is the better passer and overall QB
