The End of the Lamar Jackson Era

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

Jackson is dependent on having an excellent offensive line. Every QB needs at least a decent one, mind you, but Jackson and the playbook Roman has built around Jackson is dependent on excellent OL play. They’ve been decimated by retirements and injuries. I think the ravens are cooked this year.

I've said since the beginning of the year that I'm not buying the Lamar Jackson hype, and I'm not buying the Kyler Murray hype, either.   I know they are really special athletes, and they're a couple

Say it with me..."We don't have to tear down Lamar, to prop Josh up".   Lamar is a phenomenal player and deserves his place at the "elite of the elite" table. Josh is well on his way to earn

Eh. I would be pissed if JA had a clunker and the rest of the league said, see! I told you he wasn't any good! I don't think we should do the same to LJ.    Tonight seemed as much about LJ h

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   

He earned his MVP award. Im not sure why you go out of your way to diminish what he did. Its an award. It has to be given to someone. He had an MVP type season. Get over it.

Lamar Jackson career tds: 74

Josh Allen career tds: 74

 

One of these guys was THE entire League’s MVP just last year, and last year the other guy was mostly considered by many to be marginal NFL QB, at best.

 

Not many in the general football population would guess that it was this close, don’t ya think?

Jackson threw the ball a bit better today. But if he doesn't greatly improve at throwing the ball to actual WR's soon, he'll start to look like the gadget QB some predicted and were labelled you know what for doing so. So far Jackson is no Murray...

That 74th TD by Josh is something Lamar can only make in his dream

look, I know it sounds like I am whining about the loss...but oh man that pass so deserved to be for a game they won, let alone a game winning td pass in the 4th quarter.

 

that’s one that should just be rememebered for a long time and I am worried that it won’t be.

It will be by Bills fans...that’s about it though

59 passing, 15 rushing for Jackson, including his two playoff games.

 

51 passing, 21 rushing and 2 receiving for Allen, including his one playoff game.

 

Everything sort of balances in the wash, because Josh has started more games (37-32) than Jackson (that's surprising, too), but Jackson has played in more games than Allen (41-38).

My biggest issue with this whole Lamar Jackson regression/being-figured-out is that people who defend him harp on not having guys that Mahomes, Allen have...

 

Ok, yes, nobody has what Mahomes has, but in regards to Allen.. Both Allen and Jackson are going to get paid soon.. you can't have everything.  

 

Allen doesn't have the running game or tight ends that Lamar Jackson has.  What Allen does have is great coaching and a top 5 WR unit.   Pick your struggle.

yet as you said one guy was MVP,  the other frowned upon.

 

The Ravens had the better team last season. But last season was last season.

Roman can scheme for the run game like nobody's business but it looks to me like Lamar is not appreciably better as a passer than he was at Louisville. I liked him a lot coming out because I thought he showed promise as a passer and we all knew the kind of runner he was. Maybe I'm wrong but I don't see much if any progression. -He's at best a tier 2 passer. If I'm right, at the end of the day that's just not good enuf to win a championship. Having a good running game is important but that should be the RBs job. The QBs job is to throw the football. It's a passing league. I expect the Ravens to implode in the playoffs once again. Just too easy to contain when the going gets tough.
