Lamar Jackson

Recommended Posts

As I watch this game I am seeing the Lamar Jackson from last year. Everyone crowned him the next wave of QB. Everyone said we need someone like that. In another thread I praised how hard he worked this offseason, and said I would love JB to make those strides over this offseason. But how easily we forget that Lamar has always struggled to throw the ball. If you are watching you can see passes high, behind and wounded ducks. Just saying everyone can show regression when adversity hits.

While he's thrown some ducks, he's also slung it beautifully several times.

It's early. Go Titans.

Maybe but the throw you just talked about. Our receivers outside of Hilton wouldn’t make that catch. Not a great throw. 

Jb would never attempt that. Gear throw or not

I know right. Every thread on here eventually ends up there because people want to make every topic a JB bash thread. God I hope we don’t take a QB and JB balls out next year.

Your crazy if you don't want to draft a QB. Or just blind to his ineptitude

Not saying I don’t want to. Saying it would be great if we didn’t and then JB shut everyone up next year and played amazing. We can’t start any thread without someone taking a dump on JB in the thread. I’m so over this already.

That's because 95% of fans know we will never win anything with him behind center. The other 5% are just jb fan boys. He will not ball out. He has reached his ceiling I'd bet everything I own on it

I'd equate him to the Mike Hart of QBs. All the hype with nothing to back it up. There was actually people on here that said our offense would be better with jb instead of luck

You wanna bash him that is fine. Take it to the JB thread. I started this one because I was curious what people were thinking of Lamar.

Your very first post brought jb into this thread saying you would love to see him make the strides Jackson did. Of course everyone would love him to be the answer but it's just flat out not the case

That was more geared to the amazing progress that Lamar made. Dude, just leave your hate for JB somewhere else. 
 

back on topic. Lamar is making some great throws but we will see. Now he has to throw and everyone knows it.

Lamar is a good running back, and shows no signs of being anything more.

500 total  yards and 1 touchdown. Has that ever happened?


When you factor in the fumble, 2 INT and two stops on 4th and 1, it’s looks worse and worse. 
 

The Titans just laid the Blue print for playing RunMar in 2020.

Yes the blueprint works if he stays the same but if he progresses more as a passer and the ravens get a better receiver then it won’t work

This will be RunMar’s best season he ever had! He’s not a good passer. 

 

Book it!

Wow, the Titans made it to the third round, with a back up QB at that.

 

Back up to who? He's never been a backup to begin with....

Have Colts fans perhaps forgot that you aren’t just guaranteed a SB with every good quarterback you get? If you’re not going to be happy until the next Manning or Luck comes along then you might not be happy for the rest of your life. I’d give any good quarterback a chance. 1 season isn’t a chance.

Gotta agree. QBs like Brees and Rodgers are elite, but somehow have experienced bad fortune in the playoffs. 
 

The Ravens receivers were not on the same page for a lot of the game. I’m not a big Jackson fan, but I think the entire offense choked on this one.

Not to get off track but so Lamar can improve as a passer but no one else is allowed to. Good to know.

Lamar has shown he has. JB hasn’t. His stats are similar to 2017 still. Lamar in 2018 had 58% completion, 6TD, 3int rating of 84.5

2019 66.3 completion %, 36 TD, 6Int rating of 113.3. All his passing stats went up in each category. You got to understand JB is trash

he is gonna be MVP you JB supporters need to stop trying to use outlandish stuff like this to help prove your lame JB points. let's also not forget that Jackson will be in year 3 next year not 5 like JB.

While I agree, there is absolutely no comparing Lamar and Brissett one bit. 
 

However, RunMar got exposed yesterday and he’s not going to “Revolutionize” the QB poster , unless he can progress as a passer. A lot of junk time numbers, behind those stats last night. The Titans limited his “strength” which is running, and the Ravens had to play from behind all game. Kudos to both the Bills and Titans.

Lamar had a great season , but after this loss  the talk will be can he win a playoff game ? Remember Andy Dalton or Peyton early in his career. It’s just one of those things that go with high expectations. He’s only a second year QB, but you have to start winning some playoff games.

First he is not trash. I tell my 15 year old nephew this all the time. He calls players trash. I say I hope he can be that trashy that he is getting paid millions to be in the NFL. About 1.6% of college players get drafted. There are around 253 starting QBs in NCAA. Of that only 32 start in NFL and he is one of them. So shut up, sit down and go back to trolling with high school letterman’s jacket on, with that garbage of players being trash. 
 

Second my point wasn’t that JB is as good as Lamar. My point was everyone, if they want to put in the work, can improve. Everyone said Lamar just has to improve his passing. Why can’t we at least agree that it would be nice for JB to improve and it is realistic that he will. 
 

it is win win. The Colts would be much improved. For those of us that like JB we can say look he can be good. For this that don’t, you could say he is good enough to trade now and start your beloved rookie in 2021.

JB isn't trash, Lamar is better no doubt though. If JB was trash he wouldn't of went 7-7 in games that he started and finished. I can buy average, that is what .500 is. If our fanbase is waiting on the next Peyton or Luck, they will be waiting forever. I would take Luck over Lamar Jackson and look at the year Jackson had.

Do you stats to understand the breakdown? JB was the worst QB in our division, was ranked 33  out of 34 qbs with only Mitch behind him. Was the worst 4th qtr QB and lead the league in games with under 200 yards and 1 touchdown. He’s not a good qb he is below average. I don’t want a rookie. I want Carr. Only rookie I want is a available 2021.

    • Since many here apparently do NOT read the front page of the website on a daily basis,  I thought I'd like up a couple of stories about what to expect at the Combine which starts tomorrow....      First up, a Day by Day summary of what to look for....   https://www.colts.com/news/nfl-scouting-combine-2020-colts-preview-draft     Next Up, a Positional breakdown of players currently on our roster,  and players that CB has acquired in any form...   draft, free agent,  etc. It covers all possible aspects and gives you an idea of the type of player Ballard and his scouts are looking for.   Height, Weight, Speed,  Strength,  Length,  Jumping,  etc, etc.   https://www.colts.com/news/nfl-scouting-combine-2020-colts-preview-draft   Remember,  beyond physical testing,  the Combine is important because of things that we likely won't hear about.   Job interviews,  medical testing,  psycological testing.     Some of these things may leak out over time,   but we likely won't learn about them in real time.    And many of these things involve aspects that Ballard and company care about.    Namely Character.     Annually, we likely have the smallest Big Board of players we are willing to draft.   Many talented kids we bypass because of other flaws and red flags in their profile that we may never know about.   These two stories are on the front page of the website.    I did not see them discussed anywhere.    If I'm wrong,  (and I may be)  then my apologies...    
    • The cap was in a great place when we had Luck.   You really don't have an opportunity for an early QB once your team is fortified.   On WR, I want to take at least one this year. If we have a new and more capable QB, I'd go well rounded and dynamic X. If we keep JB as starter, possession X. Both options in 3rd or later rounds. Who the QB is, definitely impacts WR strategy. I certainly wouldn't go with a deep threat WR with JB.
    • Of course cap is the least of our worries right now....we are not paying an elite QB or pass rusher.    As far as the bolded, the same can be said for a pass rusher. The reality is, successful QB's have come from across the draft board, and even beyond the draft. The idea that the Colts must use their highest pick in this draft for a QB doesn't hold water with me. I personally would rather see a solid game manager in place while the team is being fortified, until the right guy comes along. I don't see that guy in this draft, even if we had the #1 pick.   However, this discussion is about WR. Let's keep it about that. 
    • Ballard will not be on the hot seat anytime soon. Crazy talk.
