Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson is the MVP and has won 37 games as the team’s starting quarterback since he took the reins in 2018, and he’s next in line for a lucrative contract extension.
However, he is still under fire from NFL figures. One anonymous defensive coordinator was not completely confident in him or his quarterback abilities and suggested that he would never be considered a first-level quarterback.
“If he has to pass to win the game, they won’t win the game,” The Athletic’s defensive coordinator said in an article published on Monday. “He’s so unique as an athlete and he’s a really good footballer, but I don’t care if he wins the league MVP title 12 times, I don’t think he’ll ever be number one as a quarterback.
“He will be number one as a footballer, but not as a quarterback. Many games are reduced to two minutes and that is why it is difficult for them to move forward even when they are good in defense. The playoffs are tight.” You have to be able to throw the ball and he throws the ball so inconsistently. It’s hit or miss.”
Another NFL defensive coordinator. said Athletic they might see him as a level 1 or 3 quarterback, and it would be a mistake to ignore him on the ballpark.
But according to the coach, Jackson steps back and throws the ball “it’s not the same” as his offensive game.
