Jackson will be seeing ghosts, demons and ghouls. The real tests IMO will be Dallas, Philly and KC.
I hope they come up with a good plan! Be nice if they could stymie jackson. Make him throw to win, that's what i reckon.
I just hope our Offense play a complete pull your weight game.
The Pats offense has 222 points. That's more than 30 other teams. How is our offense "not that good"???
Sorry Bob but I disagree. I think match up wise the Brown's were a much bigger problem. Good defense and three plus offensive weapons. The Ravens don't have the Brown's offensive weaponry outside of Jackson. I think this is another 20 point win.
How about not that consistent? But I like where they are heading. Admittedly I was wrong about Sanu and now think he'll be a nice addition. Wynn coming back and Mason healthy will help. They're experimenting with a quasi blocking FB . I expect a much more consistent offense in the weeks going forward.
Browns & Ravens D are both bad.
Balt -109.5 -130.7
Cleve -173.3 -88.2
I'm not a big believer in Balt but their run game & overall offense is a good test.
Kinda went left here this isnt directed at you. Just the general talk surrounding Jackson.
Despite what some think Jackson won't melt under pressure. Never been his style & yes I know hes never faced Bill... Again Im not a huge believer in the team but hes not the type to panic.
Shame people let narratives & preconceived ideas shape their minds. He's been the best QB out of a good class that had a ton of potential. Has his team on pace for another playoff run/birth but all some talk about is what he can't do.
My comments weren't a negative about Jackson rather the ability of the Pat's defense to shut him down. I believe they can bring the extra man because the Ravens do not have the same level of weapons as the Brown's do.
But Jackson himself has been fun to watch. Good young QB although I think he runs a little too dangerously for my taste.
As was I. In fairness, though, I would have had him as a much higher priority if I knew how badly the team wanted to move on from Gordon. Obviously they weren't going to roll with two rookies as the only big WRs on the team.
I agree. I admit this first point was a bit over the top as far as their offensive potential. In later post in this thread i tempered that. This is still IMO the best offense we will play in large part due to the QB who is the best we have faced all year. The Browns have higher offensive potential but the Ravens are more complete and consistent offensively IMO.
Yeah, I would agree with that but it never seems to work for the opposing teams! Even when they have some effective runs, it goes nowhere.
The Ravens won in Seattle because they scored two defensive TD's.
Jackson basically sucked. We get the Ravens games here in Cleveland.
He mostly sucks.
It's no longer 2009 and Jarvis Green is not getting run over.
who cares if you get the games in Cleveland or in Alaska? Saying Jackson mostly sucks is complete nonsense.
If your QB can't consistently pass the ball but instead is a rollercoaster of accuracy which makes his team more one dimensional than some like to admit then of course this will be one of the things front and center when you talk about him.
His talent on his legs was never in question and everyone knew he would be able to do a lot of damage with it. And from what I have seen he is getting also a fair share of kudos for that so lets not pretend he is being treated vastly unfair.
What sucks is that he got drafted into a place where his offense has to carry the team. So any of his mistakes will get magnified because they need him to have great games every week due to the way the Ravens' defense plays.
That doesn't change that he still needs to get a grip on the variance in his passes.
That and the voices he sometimes hears on the headset at Foxboro.
Hopefully Mason is back.
The "Ghost-Train" rolls into Baltimore and takes away their best runner (Jackson).
Brady will have time to throw and shred their Defense.
The Pats should have more than enough to win this.
More ghosts then Charles Manson’s old house.
Jackson has been improving IMO but I don’t think the pats will have a problem taking away what he wants to do. I think he will struggle. I’m suprised the spread isn’t higher. Pats seem like easy money Sunday night
I like this matchup a lot, actually. The Patriots built a defense around speed and versatility. The Patriots will have a lot of people take turns keeping Jackson in check. Lamar Jackson won't know pre-snap who is coming for him.
Using only one player makes it elementary for the opponent to account for and block that player, or worse, throw right at him since he's not in pass coverage.
I expect to see gap discipline to keep Jackson in the pocket, forcing him to throw into the secondary. We'll see Chase Winowich, Jonathan Jones and JC Jackson coming off the edge since they are all as fast as Lamar Jackson. Justin Bethel will be an interesting guy to watch when he's on the field.
The Patriots have played these elusive pass-run QBs a lot. Lamar Jackson will get hit a lot. Taking away his interest in running the ball is something they will do from the very beginning. They'll take a couple of penalties along the way.
