Lamar Jackson faced more playoff disappointment this weekend. After getting his first playoff win in the wildcard round, Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens lost to the Buffalo Bills. This marks another playoff failure for Lamar Jackson.

Prior to the Playoffs, Jackson spoke about how he wants to change the reputation around the Ravens and the Playoffs. Former Super Bowl winner Cheap Shannon Sharpe Jersey spoke on Undisputed about Jackson’s playoff collapse.

He believes that Jackson did not play well against the Bills. Sharpe noted that he was not criticizing Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey character, nor was he critiquing his exploits on the court. His criticism was strictly limited to the football field.

“Lamar wasn’t playing well. When I critique any player, I’m not critiquing him as a person. I don’t care about charitable contributions, I don’t care what he does off the field.

“I am critiquing his play. If you believe Lamar Jackson is going to run the Ravens to a Super Bowl you are out of your mind.”

Lamar Jackson doesn’t step up in the Playoffs?
Sharpe went further to compare Lamar Jackson to another MVP of a different sport – NBA’s Giannis Antetokounmpo. He noted that both players are great during the regular season.

But during the Playoffs, teams zero in on their flaws, and force them to rely on their weaker assets, and force them into failure. He added, “Let me tell you who Lamar Jackson reminds me of. He’s Giannis Antetokounmpo.

“He’s an MVP level player and he’ll have great success in the regular season. But when you get to the playoffs and they clam your b**t down, and you only have one dimension to your game. If Giannis can’t Eurostep and dunk you, what can he do?”

Sharpe emphasized that teams use Jackson’s poor passing in order to get him to turn over the ball. He pointed out how the Bills did just that.

And Jackson was not able to do anything once the Bills cut off all the running routes for Jackson, who loves to rush with the ball.

“Okay Lamar Jackson, we’re going to take your legs away. We’re not going to let you go for a buck fifty running the football. Throw the ball. Of the 24 passes that he threw, only five went 10 yards or further…

“Right now, Lamar Jackson is not a good enough thrower of the football to get the Ravens to where they need to be. It’s simple as that.”

Can Jackson help the Ravens win a Super Bowl? He has been with the Ravens for a long time now, and maybe time and patience are running out on Jackson to finally deliver what he has promised to do in the past.

After losing to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional round, fans of the Ravens and media members have begun calling out the lack of passing success by the Baltimore Ravens, including former wide receiver Cheap Steve Smith Jersey On NFL GameDay, he didn’t mince words of his critique on offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s passing concepts being “elementary.”

“I speak from a wide receivers perspective. There are times when stories are coming out that some of the wide receivers can’t get separation. Well, when you’re running the type of route combination—very elementary school, very cracker jack-like, very easily to defend, you can’t necessarily put it all on the wide receivers. If you have, ‘You two go deep, you two go shallow and Lamar, throw to whoever’s open.” That’s just not the NFL. That’s not the complexity in the NFL and their passing is not very complex. I just believe Greg Roman’s a fantastic coordinator. However, that fantastic coordinator needs to start looking for a job somewhere else because I believe that his time has expired on this offense [in Baltimore]. If you want Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey to continue to be a stellar quarterback, an MVP-type of quarterback, you need to implement a second notch or a third level of the passing game that makes it a little bit more complicated because it’s not very complicated. My 6-year-old who is asleep right now can probably run this offense as well.”

This might be the laziest narrative I’ve ever heard from Ravens fans – that Joe Flacco – good old January Joe, until Lamar Jackson proves otherwise, will always be the best Ravens quarterback because he won when it counted most, in the postseason.

There’s no denying that Flacco eventually became a clutch playoff performer. Criticized often for his lack of emotion, Joe’s calm demeanor worked to his advantage on the big stage. But it wasn’t always that way.

In Joe’s first 3 postseasons he was 98 of 184 (53.2%) for 849 yards, 4 TD’s and 7 INT’s which equates to a passer rating of 57.1. Joe rushed for 37 yards on 28 carries (1.3 YPC). After 3 postseasons Joe was 26 years old. Flacco was supported by a solid offensive line and his skill position players included: Cheap Willis McGahee Jersey, Cheap Ray Rice Jersey, Le’Ron McClain, Lorenzo Neal, Cheap Todd Heap Jersey, Cheap Derrick Mason Jersey, Cheap Mark Clayton Jersey, Cheap Anquan Boldin Jersey and other less-than-notables.

In Lamar’s first 3 postseasons he was 76 of 136 (55.9%) for 900 yards, 3 TD’s and 5 INT’s which equates to a passer rating of 68.3. Lamar rushed for 367 yards on 54 carries (6.8 YPC). After 3 postseasons Lamar is 24. Jackson is supported by an offensive line that is inferior to that which supported Joe and his skill position players have included: Cheap Alex Collins Jersey, Cheap Gus Edwards Jersey, Kenneth Dixon, Buck Allen, Cheap Mark Ingram Jersey, JK Dobbins, Cheap Willie Snead Jersey, John Brown, Michael Crabtree, Seth Roberts, Cheap Mark Andrews Jersey, Hayden Hurst, Cheap Marquise Brown Jersey, Cheap Miles Boykin Jersey and other less-than-notables.

Football has often been referred to as the ultimate team game. You win and lose as a team. Team, Team, Team are among the first words uttered by John Harbaugh when he was hired in 2008. Clearly the quarterback contributes greatly to the outcome of any NFL game, but win or lose, it’s not always all on the guy behind center.

The aforementioned Cheap Joe Flacco Jersey postseason stats aren’t those of a winning quarterback. Yet during those first 3 postseasons Joe’s team was (4-3). Despite better stats and far more production, Jackson is (1-3) during his first three trips to the playoff dance.

Lamar is young and there’s growth ahead and clearly he has to be a better passer. But to jump to conclusions and label Joe the better playoff quarterback after 3 postseason appearances equates to nothing more than revisionist history.

To those Ravens fans and even media members who fan the flames of this narrative, STOP.

Just stop.

Season Tickets
The 2020 NFL season has been, well you know, unprecedented. Hopefully we heal as a country in all ways and that the 2021 season will return to normalcy, with fans filling the stands. But you do have to wonder how many fans will return. Will there be such pent up demand that The Bank is full to the brim or will the return to capacity crowds be a slow process?

Prior to the pandemic, things began to change. A significant demographic that contributed greatly to capacity crowds slowly began to realize that they didn’t need to go to every game; that staying home or watching from a local pub offers some economies and creature comforts that you don’t get from the stadium. Tickets became readily available and PSL values began to decay. Many fans chose not to renew their season tickets and they willingly surrendered seat licenses that were no longer in demand. And now the licenses reclaimed by the team are for sale. Perhaps even the Ravens recognize that the hottest ticket in town isn’t so scorching anymore.

This season forced fans to stay at home. Pubs installed social distancing procedures that made visits to local establishments either less appealing or, they weren’t options at all given the closures. Many bought new TV’s that offered more than they ever have before, for reasonable prices. Fans learned new ways to enjoy the games and maybe, they discovered that at-home viewing, while not a replacement for the in-stadium experience, offered many advantages and a new perspective.

The challenge for the Ravens and really the NFL as a whole, is to make that in-stadium experience so unique that fans feel compelled to go. This isn’t a new threat to capacity crowds, but it may very well be a bigger one thanks to the pandemic.

For years Steve Bisciotti would join us on the Ravens Rap in Ocean City, MD. Always candid, I once asked Steve, given the advancement in television at in at-home viewing, if he thought there might come a day when NFL stadiums would be smaller in order to create creature comforts and enhance a fan’s experience in ways that 70,000+ capacity stadiums could not. He chuckled and reminded me of the league’s popularity. I wonder what he’d say today?

Judging from the team’s current fire sale on PSL’s, I bet he would respond differently.

Smith Sr., as I mentioned, did not hold back.

These criticisms feel valid, especially after last night. It piles on when you take note of this team placing dead-last in passing for the 2020 regular season and 27th last season. There is talent in the wide receiver room but it’s become clear there’s a fault as to why they haven’t been successful pushing the ball downfield through the air.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh offered a defiant rebuttal Wednesday to the criticism about his offense, saying he is “not apologizing” for Lamar Jackson’s style of play or the team’s run-oriented game plan.

Harbaugh’s forceful support came four days after the Ravens tied a franchise postseason record for fewest points scored in a 17-3 divisional playoff loss to the Buffalo Bills. Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman received heavy flak for what many saw as a simplistic passing attack.

“The reason why I’m strong on this is because it goes back to the same criticism we’ve heard the last three years about not being the type of an offense or the type of a quarterback that some people want to see,” Harbaugh said during his 45-minute, end-of-season news conference. “They’re just going to have to live with it because Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey has won a lot of football games here and our offense has won us a lot of football games here and we’re not apologizing for that for one second.”

Let’s project all 14 seeds in next season’s NFL playoffs: Why the Bucs and Packers will be back
The Ravens finished last in the NFL in passing for the first time since 2003. Harbaugh explained that the lack of passing yards is the result of building “the best run offense in the history of football the last two years” and the fact that Baltimore has attempted an NFL-low 406 passes.

Baltimore has every route concept in its playbook, but it won’t have as complex of a passing game because the Ravens don’t throw the ball 40 to 50 times per game like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Harbaugh said.

“We’re going to improve it, no question about it,” Harbaugh said. “We’re going to go to work to be more precise, more efficient and better at what we do. We’ll leave the criticism to the critics. When they’re ready to coordinate their offense and put their product on the field, I’ll be looking forward to competing against it.”

Harbaugh pointed out that the Ravens finished No. 7 in scoring this season, averaging 29.3 points per game. “We can talk about the other 25 teams and talk about what they’re not doing to fit somebody’s eye,” he said.

Harbaugh was equally strong in his comments about Jackson’s future in Baltimore. The reigning NFL MVP, Jackson finished his third NFL season, which is the time when Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson both received their long-term deals.

Based on market value, Jackson will likely average over $40 million per season on a new deal. With the expectation that Baltimore will exercise his fifth-year option this offseason, Jackson is under contract through the 2022 season, although most agree he has outplayed his rookie deal.

“Of course, absolutely, we want Lamar to sign a long-term deal and be with us,” Harbaugh said. “I’m terribly certain that’s going to happen. When it happens, that’s the details. That’s what we got to figure out.”

The Ravens also have to figure out whether they have enough cap space to improve Jackson’s targets in the passing game. For the second straight season, Baltimore’s wide receivers ranked last in the league in catches and in receiving yards.

Barring the franchise tag, the top wide receivers in free agency this year are: Chicago’s Allen Robinson, Detroit’s Kenny Golladay and Tampa Bay’s Chris Godwin.

“If we could bring in an Cheap Anquan Boldin Jersey in here, let’s do it,” Harbaugh said. “Can we afford it? That’s the details we have to figure out. I think a big, physical receiver would be awesome for us.”
