I don't like Flacco out there either. Put a TE out there who can at least run block for Jackson.

 

The only reason would be they are setting up a trick play for later in the season. Otherwise we are asking for trouble.

 

I'm surprised no team has put a LB out there on him and told the LB to hit Joe when the ball is snapped.

That is exactly what I would do.  WIthin 5 yds he is a free target.

No he just stands there.  So the defensive player I believe can go at Joe and jam him at the line.

Yeah and I guess you can't apply the same QB penalties if a hit were to take place...

If that’s accurate it’s both stupid and dangerous to put him him out there.

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

I don't like Joe out there either. The Ravens are playing 10 on 11.

 

Lamar did have the longest run of the season for the Ravens yesterday.22 yards. He is scary in the open field. I thought it was sweet.

There has got to be more coming out of this. They must have 2 or 3 trick plays that they haven't shown out of this formation. Maybe in the playoffs they break them out. Until then, we'll see this every week.

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

“Put on 20 pounds of muscle over the offseason,” Hurst said. “I’m kind of on a mission this year. I’ve got a lot to prove.”

Lamar is one dangerous dude out in the open field. Imagine if he just had a semi-accurate arm 🤔

We won't know if he's developed as a passer....meaning an NFL passer, because he threw for a ton of yards and TD's in college....but look out if he makes that big step.

No doubt.

If Marty never calls a passing play for him how can he take the step?
