Lamar Jackson

Recommended Posts

He's the golden ticket this year.   Just hung a 60 spot on me so far, and not done yet.  :sad:  

 

Congrats to all who drafted him.  Enjoy your championships.

13-1 this season and it's all thanks to him. Having Derrick Henry didnt hurt one bit, but man, Lamar solidified my winning season. Such a fun guy to watch. After tonight's performance (fingers crossed) I should win the first playoff round and move on to the championship round. Not bad for a running back?

Usually, the magic player is an RB. The last two years, it was a QB. Wonder if Kyler Murray will make a big second-year leap like Mahomes and Jackson? Not as good a runner as Jackson or a passer like Mahomes though.

Jackson's improvement of his passing game and decision making is one of the biggest surprises of the year.  As far as positive surprises, hard to top it.

Amazing isn't it? I can't remember a player improving as much as he has over a season. I didn't see it coming but I'm happy for him. He worked his ass off.

His throws are effortless, flick of the wrist, very Mahomes-esque. Best part about him is he seems to have a great head on his shoulders and seems very focused on the team and not himself/stats. As a Steeler fan, its gonna be awesome to have him in the division for the next 15 years :(

The good news is he'll get slower.  But the bad news is he's very young still.  22.

Running QBs don't last that long, so that would be quite the trend breaking.

I don't think many QBs last that long period. It will be interesting to see how he evolves, because we've never seen a running QB with stats like this. But yes, history is not on his side. BUT if he can stay like this for 5-8 years and continue to evolve, which is realistic, his resume will be legendary. That's a big "BUT."

60?  You must have a fairly unique scoring system.  I got 39.2 out of him in a BOTH league.  Happy with that for sure.

Except that unlike other running qbs, he's becoming a very good passer

He has to learn to take less hits. He got drilled a couple times last night.

The BoTH league I'm in got him 49.2. It's 6 points for passing TDs.

Hmmm...I thought he did a good job of running out bounds last night. But either way this is true, he will have to learn how to protect himself better.

He took a really good shot early on where he should have gotten down. Nonetheless he does do a decent job protecting himself overall.

We've seen plenty of running QBs like this...Daunte Culpepper, Michael Vick, Cam Newton...or at least I've seen them. :)

Fran Tarkenton lasted 18 years and was known to be very mobile.

Not on this level though. Perhaps Vick is the closest thing but he wasn't near as deadly as Lamar. Lamar has been a starter for less than 2 years and already broke Vick's record.

Guess you could quantify 'this level'...because RG3, Randall Cunningham, Vick, Newton, Culpepper, all had some really extreme early years in both running/passing stats.  Not saying Jackson isn't playing special, but we've definitely seen this before.

But they haven't had THIS type year. Nobody has, it's unchartered territory.

So Culpepper's 2004 season with over 5K total yards, 39 TDs, 11 ints, wasn't THIS type of year...okay, whatever. :huh:

Calm down Cuh. The guy just broke every QB rushing record including Dante's. That's the point. Dante's year was amazing, you can't take that away from him.
