Lamar Jackson: MERGED

Recommended Posts

I get the comparisons to the treatment of Josh Allen, but Josh Allen has a cannon.  It's not like he is an RB playing QB.  Jackson also has an arm, but his motion is/was nowhere near as pretty.

Josh Allen gets the same critiscm but is generally regarded as a bad QB who will always be bad. And he is just that.

Maybe.  I think Josh Allen is the kind of QB a defensive team wants.  He has limited his turnovers and he is always a danger for the huge play.  Being able to run is icing on the cake for 3rd down plays.  I wish Rex could have had him instead of Sanchez.  He looked like sh*t against the Eagles and Pats, but otherwise they have to be pretty happy with him.

I've seen at least three of the four compared to JaMarcus Russell. Here. Guess what the fourth one's mom looks like.

How is JaMarcus as a comp for Allen?  I mean, like the others, Allen seems like a good kid that will put in the work, so JaMarcus without the Grape Drank?  I don't see why you'd compare any of them.  Russell wasn't that mobile was he?  Just huge.  More Winston, Flacco, Ben on a bad day to me, but I don't remember him that well.

Randall Cunningham held up pretty well and he had a few 100 carry seasons. 

I have kind of a strange take on the racial aspect because I am 100% crusty old white guy, but I grew up rooting for the Lawrence McCutcheon, Harold Jackson Rams just because I thought James Harris looked "cool." 

Through grade school I consistently bemoaned the fact that good college QBs didn't seem to get a chance because of their race.  There was plenty of truth to that, but also a total lack of understanding of scouting and the NFL QB position.
