Lamar Jackson is 0/2 in the playoffs, and I am not referring to losses and wins - I'm referring to even looking like a decent quarterback in his playoff showings.
Lamar Jackson's career playoff stats (two games thus far):
45/88 (51.1% completion percentage)
3 passing TDs
6.44 yards per pass attempt
29 rushes for 197 yards for 6.79 yards per rushing attempt
0 rushing TDs
4 fumbles (2 lost)
It's rather telling about Jackson, isn't it?
I have always felt he will flame out after a few years. It may even start this year.
@Roland and @Kf3339.
If you guys are basing that off of 2 games you also must think that Peyton Manning, even Dan Marino are bad QB's huh.
Russell Wilson had won a Super Bowl and 3 playoff games at the same point in his career. He was ranked #20 that year.
Lamar Jackson is good. He is not the best player in the NFL. The two are not mutually exclusive.
You’re all doing to Lamar what many did to Russ early on. Which is dismiss his accomplishments. You’re seemingly rooting for him to fail because he doesn’t fit your mold of what a QB is. You might as well argue he’s too short.
The Ravens offense last year was one of the most efficient offenses in history. They were practically toying with teams, completely dominating them. That’s a major credit to Lamar.
Whereas you can argue Mahomes has Reid, Hill, and Kelce on offense. You can argue that the Ravens offense IS Lamar Jackson. They’re success is directly tied to his speed and overall talent. The Chiefs success is majorly tied to Reid’s scheme. There’s a reason why Matt Moore was still putting up 30 points whereas RG3 barely did anything when he took the field.
