The Pros and Cons of sticking with Lamar Jackson at Quarterback
It’s time to break down the quarterback situation in Baltimore. Is it Lamar Jackson season or will Joe Flacco take back his job?
There is nothing bigger than the quarterback controversy that is brewing between Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson. Jackson got his first start last week and he led the Ravens to a 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Joe Flacco has a tough hip injury and it looks like the Ravens are going to have one more game with Jackson one way or another. After that, everything is up in the air. What should the Ravens do when Flacco is ready to return?
What makes this interesting is that Flacco has never really had this kind of competition. In his 10 previous seasons, Flacco was the clear starting quarterback. Flacco has been the leader of this franchise for a long time. Flacco is a player who has a lot of respect in the locker room. You never hear bad things about Flacco from his teammates. It’s going to be hard pushing Flacco out of the starting job one way or another.
The most important thing fans have to understand is it is possible to like both quarterbacks. Ravens fans should always respect Flacco and appreciate what he has done for the franchise. If nothing else, the Ravens have had stability at the most important position. The argument today isn’t against Flacco. Building Jackson up isn’t personal, it just might be what is right for the Baltimore Ravens. Is it time for a new era for Ravens quarterbacking?
