The Ravens are in a window right now where they hit on a young QB and can benefit from his rookie contract to make other moves. Same with KC. Once those guys are nearing the end of their rookie deals, they will get signed to mammoth contracts and acquiring talent to field well-rounded teams will be a lot more challenging. It happened to the Ravens once they gave Flacco a huge contract and he wasn't even elite. But it's always a huge help to find that young QB.
The Patriots were able to sort of circumvent this challenge because Brady always gave the team discounts.
Nothing tells me that Jackson’s unconventional style of play won’t eventually turn into a tired, useless gimmick rendered obsolete by years of film & more educated preparation to play against him by rival DCs.
I haven’t seen a ton of his play, but am I wrong?
Is Jackson’s play style too impressive & uniquely dominant to simply maintain like has happened with RG 3? It’s hard for me to see him playing at the top of the league for a consistent amount of years. There’s never been a precedent.
At least when they unloaded their bankroll on Flacco, to the eventual detriment of the overall roster, they were putting their chips on a traditional pocket passer. I don’t know what the hell happened to Flacco.
Lamar went to Boynton High, I know a lot of people who went there. I’m not rooting against him, I just don’t buy into his long term hype like many do.
