The End of the Lamar Jackson Era

I tend to think there may still be an element of "figured out" to it, in that with a whole season on tape, DCs can see how to shade the coverage to his strengths, and Jackson hasn't yet figured out how to level up his game to take advantage of what they're freeing up

 

 

In playoffs it was stated by team playing Ravens "We watched on how Bills defended against Lemar Jackson/Ravens and adjusted scheme accordingly."

That is certainly "figuring it out".  I am not saying all teams had talent to adjust or even Bills will change of personnel, loss of personnel and injuries this year.

I never knew we were in it.  You gotta win a playoff game to be taken seriously as a team and a franchise Qb.  Its the Mahomes era in reality.  Lets see if Buffalo can play spoiler.

I really think we can beat the Ravens in a playoff game

 

Our schedule might have been easier last year.....but our team is better then year and on pace for a better record.

 

I do feel we need to get our running game going so we can chew up clock at times we need to.

Oh, I totally agree, especially if it’s a home playoff game.

 

We almost beat them last year. And while the Ravens are still good, like you mentioned, the Bills are better this year than they were last year.

Offense: Definitely better

Defense: Definitely worse but improving.  Defense's weaknesses are Raven's strength - Defending against run, seam and long ball

ST: Definitely better and definitely worse - varies week to week

Good breakdown, bro.

 

I’d still say we’re a better team this year over last year though.

I'm not sure the author is right about that "same core concepts" thing.  The reason I'm not sure he's right about that is because that's not what I hear Leslie Frazier and some of our players saying about it.

 

Nevertheless, what I take from the article:

1) significant downgrade on the OL both for pass and for run blocking

2) more pressure on Jackson

3) drop-off in the completion % for his long ball

 

I tend to think there may still be an element of "figured out" to it, in that with a whole season on tape, DCs can see how to shade the coverage to his strengths, and Jackson hasn't yet figured out how to level up his game to take advantage of what they're freeing up

 

It's far from "the end of an Era" but it might be true that last year's coronation of Lamar Jackson as headed straight for the HOF may have been premature

 


What my biggest issue is, is the instant coronations. 
 

These people need to prove it just like Josh has.  
 

Romans offense is said to be complicated, yet when you have a limited passer it’s easier to contain. 
 

Just like TT when he had to pass for more than 30 times a game he was 5 w and  20 l. (Not exact #  but that bad) 

 

At least Kyler is a QB.

Why bring up Kyler with hacks like Lamar and Tyrod ?

Yea the offensive line has struggled in the interior (not unlike our own here.... until Stanley went down they had been good on the outside struggled inside). I think the other big change is how many teams are now playing zone against them. Last year New England tried to man up on the backend to give them a free man to try and spy Jackson (they tried to use Duron Harmon as the dime in that role some as I recall). This year they learned from what other teams have had success with and mainly played zone. Keep all eyes on Lamar and don't worry about him converting the some runs for first downs. Make sure he isn't escaping from you on big runs by making one guy miss. Lamar had 55 yards and 4 runs for first downs last week. But they don't hurt you. He will run and get some in every game because of the athlete he is. What you have to do is make sure he doesn't beat you running by breaking the big one.

Has an NFL MVP fallen so fast so quick.  He's an okay QB at best.

I remember a MVP RB being a JAG after MVP season.

 

Oh Jackson is NOT a RB?  not sure...

Yeah the buzz will be about Allen vs Mahomes instead of Jackson vs Mahomes. Jackson is just an average thrower with limitations. 

And many of those limitations are a lack of offensive threats other than himself

come on.  
 

He was crowned MVP and a winner with the same crew 

 

that is what happens when you crown someone too soon. 

 

he’s not an elite QB and he may never be

Why would the ravens even bother paying good WRs on the outside? The guy can’t throw out there. Might as well put 4 TEs in the field.

I think we're seeing why Greg Roman has never been a head coach even with being OC on multiple successful teams. He's not a true X and O guy.
