    Can't blame him. He deserves some credit for Baltimore even reaching the playoffs.

    The guy is their QB for now and the future. There was no going back.

    Ingram was the MVP of that game.

    I'm glad Harbaugh stuck with Jackson throughout. You have to think of the team and not just one individual but I highly doubt Flacco would've done better against that pass rush so leave Jackson in and let him learn from this. I get the frustration but booing whenever he came on the field in the second half and the sarcastic cheers when he completed a pass for a first down was a bit much for the future of your franchise. I think the future is still bright for both him and the team, even though he was really bad today and clearly has a lot to work on.

    This was the day of reckoning for Lamar Jackson. Chargers already saw him and it paid off. He has the advantage when you haven't seen him. He couldn't do anything today until the Chargers went into prevent D. I don't give a flying **** about stats but the game has become "fantasized" and people would look at his stats and say not bad, yeah they had -2 passing yards with 9 minutes left in the game. He made one throw on 4th down on the second TD drive but I think the defender missed on his timing, it was a ball he probably could have knocked down if he really had to. The only reason that play happened is because he moved around with his feet. His feet are his weapon. He's not accurate at all though. I think he' a poor man's Tyrod Taylor. Tyrod doesn't have the fumbling issues and atleast tries to stay in the pocket. This guy is pure;y run first.

    I'm not a big Flacco fan and I thought his conttract was super ******ed. I agree he's not the future but I don't think Jackson is either. Harbaugh only put him in to save his job as a last ditch prayer. It worked for 7 weeks. I know they say he's coming back, as much as I hate that family, they aren't stupid, I think he knows he can't really win with him and I wouldn't be shocked if he atleast now fielded offers now that he's technically a free agent

    But the Ravens D is superior to NE. So I think they can increase that.

    New England's D isn't anything special. It's more scheme than personnel.

    I actually think it did, but not cost, I just think it verified to him the truth. This team with an aging D and one dimensional offense cant win it all with a QB like that. He put in Jackon to save his job, he did that, he can sell what he did this year to someone over a firing although since the SB years ago they haven't done ****.

    Career wise he's better, I think Rivers is a better QB in the present though. I mean it's almost a wash for me.

    Gostkowski might be the better kicker although he does have some memorable misses I suppose.

    Chargers D played soft. They could afford to up 20. It took a miracle fluke play to keep the 2nd TD drive going.

    Up tempo or not they couldn't block, he couldn't throw or hang on to the ball. It's hard to go up tempo when you're losing yards.

    Two fold argument. The Patriots D isn't the Ravens. Give the D the credit.

    True, but Jeff Fischer was extended mid season before he was fired. It's happened before.

    I think he stays though.

    The guy had zero QB rating into 4th qtr

    Cant blame or blast Raven fans for booing it was well justified

    Interesting wrinkle I saw today about guessing why Jackson finished the game. The Ravens didn't put Flscco out because they didn't want to risk him getting injured and being unable to cut him this offseason.

    I guess that could be so, nobody is trading for that contract so release is their only hope. I still am not convinced Jackson is a better option though and i'm not even that big on Flacco.

    yeah you can't blame the fans for booing lamar. even though flacco would have gotten absolutely murdered out there behind that awful o-line

    hopefully he just uses it as fuel for his fire

    We have 4 solid tight ends I have no idea why we didn't work them into the equation.

    The Ravens and Harbaugh are working on an extension.
