this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Lamar was incredible & so was Mark Ingram ... I wonder if the Ravens "peaked" too soon though ?...

He's already been hurt scrambling last year. Same for Watson. It can be done for a little while but eventually the hits will become more violent.

What he is doing is fun to watch but it's not sustainable. Never has been never will be.

Re: Lamar Jackson

I think Jackson will have a better career than Vick. He's more savvy throwing the ball. And the Ravens OC deserves a raise, this pistol 2 TE stuff is for real.

The statistics don’t coincide with that premise. QB’s get hit ALL the time. Whether they’re running or throwing they take licks. Him taking the hit after running isn’t any different from him taking a hit after already releasing the ball which happens damn near every play.

Re: Lamar Jackson

Would love to see what Taysom could do with his abilities - hell, he's even trucking DBs!

He's going to be able to keep running up the middle like a RB's even though no QB has been able to do it and have real success. You are correct. Accept my apology. He will do this and win a couple of SB's and prove everyone wrong.

Re: Lamar Jackson

Will say this about the Ravens...if Fox gives us Tampa Bay @ Jacksonville on TV here in New Orleans on Sunday, instead of Ravens/49ers, I will be pissed!

I think he could run that offense Baltimore is utilizing. Hes nowhere near as fast or quick as Lamar, but I think wed see positive results.

What QB has had the offense built around him in this fashion? The closest thing to it is Cam Newton and hes been quite a success in the NFL. Russell Wilson has 4,000 yards rushing and a Super Bowl to show for it. We havent seen a large enough sample size of mobile quarterbacks with offenses suited to their needs to make such an assertion.
