Popular Post johnnysd Posted January 13 Popular Post Share Posted January 13 People talking about getting Lamar Jackson makes me truly angry and physically ill. There is no possible worse scenario than trading and signing for Lamar Jackson. What in the hell are people thinking? He makes no sense for the Jets on literally any level. He is the worst possible option 1. He should be disqualified on durability alone. The guy has finished 10 of the last 21 games for Balt. He has ended the last 2 seasons missing 5 plus games. His play style is the most unsustainable of any QB in the NFL. History shows that he WILL completely fall off a cliff and that likely has already happened. Just look at Cam (who was a much better pocket passer) he won an MVP and that fell off the face of the other. He kept getting trotted out there but all the hits add up and he was completely ineffective but people kept expecting him to magically become healthy again. Look at RG3. Even Russell Wilson's issues are related to him just being diminished from all the wear and tear and he was among the best ever at avoiding contact. Lamar does not. 2. Even when he is healthy, the wear and tear builds up in Lamar and he gets less and less effective as the season goes on 3. He is not a pocket passer throwing mostly to the TE and we do not have Mark Andrews 4. He requires a completely unique offense just for him. We don't have the coaching or players to support him 5. He will cost AT LEAST 2 first round picks. The Jets cannot afford to give up that draft capital 6. He will cost like $30-40 million against the cap, and the Jets really do not have it without cutting a bunch of players, possibly not re-signing players like Q and Huff 7. It would trash any possibility of rebuilding the OL 8. Here is maybe the biggest reason. His own team, that has the coach, the coordinator, the players to best support him clearly do not want to sign him long term. So why in the hell would we consider signing him? To be honest, the only way to handle Lamar is on 1 year contracts because you simply cannot throw away the entire teams future on a possibility that he will somehow stay healthy and regain his form which history has show to not be true at all.
