          As Usual some unbecoming retorts from the Commentators, the freaking question is does this stain Lamars season.? Not do we have respect for what he has done.? The answer is yes this stains his season because as a number 1 seeded NFL team in the playoff the Raven's were removed and tossed to the side out of the playoffs early and everyone has moved on to see who will be in the Superbowl out of the final four teams.

                    You are so mean, why are you so critical, he is young and the Baltimore Ravens has lead us a long way, and he has changed the game, and loved by people world wide, you are so hard to watch.......

                      Why does everyone assume Lamar Jackson is going to get better? Sometimes QBs hit their high water mark early in their careers then regress into mediocrity. Jared Goff is a perfect example. Goff took the Rams to the Super Bowl last season and had a very good year and this year he stunk. Goff will never be more than a mediocre Quarterback who had one good season. The jury is still out on Lamar Jackson as what he will be in the future.

                        Anyone who cares what Stephen A has to say isn't a football fan. He's paid millions to yell his worthless opinions.

                                  The coaches stuff of the Revens did not get the team ready for play-off football point blank. They thought they will come in and do their thing and move on. Big mistake

                                        Ravens had a bad game at a bad time. What's not to understand here? Every team has a bad game, it's inevitable.

                                          Stephen you're an idiot. that's all you had to say and you would've said it all. Lamar did his talking on the field and his teammates and coaches really let him down. How do you put up 500+ yards and still deserve criticism? He's the MVP for a reason. He's breaking ankles and breaking records weekly out there. And he's only 23. Baltimore is gonna have their super bowl(s) wins with him under center Belee Dat.

                                                  It's not Lamar Jackson's fault but he's on his way to being one of the most disliked players in the NFL. The media is force feeding a narrative that he "broke the code" and revolutionized the position Guess what, RG3 and Kaepernick broke the code within the last decade too--and then the code was rewritten. He is a below average passer in the NFL. I've been watching the NFL for 30 years--dont tell me I'm missing something. He won people a lot of fantasy leagues this year, so people are enamored. Early Michael Vick was every bit the athlete LJ is--with a better arm. He never led a team to the championship. Jackson will have to become a competent thrower--Andy Dalton level --to beat the cream of the NFL crop in the playoffs.

                                                        One time, Bret favre threw 6 interceptions. Everyone asked why. He showed the four foot long purple bruised on his sides and legs. After seeing that, I wondered how he was able to function. Bret couldn't. Lamar is a running quarterback, and he must be getting hit alot on his legs. I was worried he would get hurt this year, but supposedly he didn't. I am sure he was hurting. People say everyone is knicked up at this time. Maybe, Lamar's body can only go so far. I suspect this is true. maybe, this is the true explanation.

Asswipe, He will ride on someone's nuts until something goes awry and then he jumps off and acts like the uncle tom sellout that he has always been.....oh yeah his man crush over in Green bay has only won 1 superbowl in how many years as starting QB????
