For curiosity's sake: Hurts or Jackson?


Dcat

Just curious.  If you could select Hurts or Lamar Jackson (with exactly same contracts as the one he signed today), which would it be?

Lamar.  Talent isnt even comparable.  Jalen played out of his mind and put up was an average year for Lamar on 1000000x better team  Very surprised the Eagles did this after 1 year of good play and middling numbers, you would think you would want to see it one more time before making him one the richest QB in the NFL but good for him, seems like a great kid.

Lamar.  Was an MVP.  is a better passer than given credit for especially if you look at the WRs he has had

They've given Navy option Lamar tons of help 

They drafted Hollywood brown one of the best deep threats in the NFL 

They drafted Andrews and Hurst. Andrews is a top 3 all pro type te 

They brought in Sammy Watkins when he was 28. Watkins was big for mahomes in their runs 

They drafted Bateman who has wr1 traits and talent.  

They drafted duvernay and Wallace who have talent. 

 

People praised Greg Roman for designing a specific pistol style offense to fit navy option Lamar's skill set and then when he couldn't take another step and actually play quarterback, the media jumped on Roman.  

 

There's a reason nobody wants the guy...

The delusional take here is breathtaking. If navy option Lamar can't play QB from the Pocket and learn to run an actual NFL passing offense like the west coast or Earnhardt -perkins he will wash out as a starter in a couple years.

Brown is an ok WR but not a #1, who were the other WRs when he was there

I agree their TEs are top notch and Andrews has put up great numbers with Lamar throwing to him

Watkins sucks and is always hurt

Bateman is ok, won't be a #1

Duvernay and Wallace are ok depth

He has not had a true #1 WR while there

When you list the “help” Lamar has received his accomplishments look even more impressive

Lamar was an MVP 4 years ago and has missed 10 of the Ravens last 21 games. Hurts just played in the Superbowl and is an ascending player who did receive MVP votes last year.

That is to say, Hurts has been playing at a higher level than Lamar most recently.

I find this take coming up a few times and it astounds me ever time.  Yes, Jalen put up great numbers that far exceeded his past production.  But his stats last year were far better than any season Lamar has had since 2019 and it's not really even close. 

You can debate that Lamar's numbers were hurt by the injuries the last two seasons, but isn't that part of what you are paying for?  Availability?  

Meanwhile, 2019 Lamar is living rent-free in many people's heads.  If you want to live in the past, wouldn't you rather have 2021 Herbert for the money?

Hollywood is among the best deep threats in the NFL. 

Why didn't Watkins suck with KC

Bateman literally does have wr1 traits.   

Andrews is elite.  

We know duvernay and Wallace are talented but because navy option Lamar can't utilize them we don't know how good they are.  

He has had plenty of help. 

The Ravens are giving him more this year.  They shipped out Roman. They'll probably draft another wr 

What's your excuse this year?

Give those weapons to Allen, mahomes, Herbert they're going for 5000 yards

Okay why was Watkins really big for the chiefs?

You don't think Bateman has wr1 traits? 

You don't think Andrews is an all pro talent?

You don't think duvernay and Wallace have talent? 

You don't think Hollywood brown is one of the best deep threats?

What about the help Hurts has?  Arguably the best OL in the sport.  Any QB can look good behind that kind of protection.

Good QB's often make the o-line look better. Bad QB's often make the o-line look worse.

Sam Monson is a PFF tool and no one should ever take anything from PFF seriously.

Yeah man, injuries play a factor obviously but what do you want me to say?  People are weird and prefer different things in life for different reasons.  People are subjective by nature and view things through jaded lenses, it's challenging to utilize context for some folks.  ie; Lamar is run first but Jalen isnt even though Jalen runs more than Lamar, Lamar cant pass from the pocket, yet, he has a higher Passing TD% than Hurts and the 2nd highest since the league merger behind only Patrick Mahomes, Hurts hasnt played a full season since entering the league but Lamar's "style" is more injury prone, there are people on the board actually arguing Lamar has a better team, Lamar is done yet he was firmly in the MVP conversation and his team in first place in the AFC when he was healthy, Top 5 scoring team to worst scoring team w/out Lamar, Minshew put up 35 pts in a start but the Ravens never scored over 17 w/out Lamar, etc. etc. etc.   Silly stuff, but what'ya going to do?  Just got to be real to yourself.

If tommy Frazier and cj Stroud have the same QB rating, ( from the pocket or not) is that indicative that they are the same quality passer? 

 

Because you're missing a massive reason why ppl don't like Lamar's skill set

Gotta factor in durability and longevity. Hurts wins both of those. Hurts also has a style that could evolve and age better where lamar relies almost entirely on his athleticism. When you factor in other positions like corner, rb, and etc where you need to be athletic, as they lose their athleticism, their productivity drops. Maybe lamar is better today, i can see the argument there if both are in perfect health, but I have little confidence that lamar will even be a starting qb in the league within 5 seasons. His skill set that makes him effective is also his biggest weakness. For lamar to be great, he’s going to take 100+ more hits than any other person playing the same position .

How do their stats in the post-season compare?

Any metric

QB rating, the new qbr, y/attempt, td%

idk, I'm confused, so I looked at more metrics and got more confused but I did notice that Lamar had 43 passing TD's in 1 season/16 starts and Jalen Hurts has 44 passing TD's in 3 seasons/34 starts.  I thought that was interesting.

Hurts has a much better playoff record and stats.  Definitely has nothing to do w/  the team he plays for and the conference he plays in though, that's for sure.
