3 things Baltimore Ravens should be thankful for today
The Baltimore Ravens are having one of their most impressive seasons ever. There is a lot to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving:
1. The MVP
The Baltimore Ravens have a young quarterback that is the most amazing athlete in the entire NFL. Lamar Jackson is the front runner for the league’s MVP award due to his unique blend of passing and running at the quarterback position. Jackson makes the Ravens unpredictable and borderline unstoppable. Jackson has 3,303 total yards and is tied for the most touchdown passes in the NFL. Jackson has had two games with five touchdown passes. He’s had two games with a perfect passer rating. He was the only player to throw for over 200 yards and have 150 yards in the same game. He’s making history on a weekly basis and he’s the most entertaining player in the entire league.
Jackson is a great leader who is a team first player. We care about his jaw dropping numbers. We care that gets crowned MVP. Jackson doesn’t. When Jackson is asked about himself he brings up the team. When he’s asked about the MVP talk he talks about the Super Bowl. Jackson’s best trait may be that he loves his teammates the way that they love him. The Ravens as a whole, love Jackson.
Jackson set the standard for hard work this offseason. He changed so many little things about his game that he looks like a completely new player. Jackson may be the easiest quarterback there ever has been to root for. Jackson was passed up by every team in the NFL at least once. The Ravens drafted him, believed in him and let him shine like the unstoppable force of good that he is. The number one thing the Ravens have to be thankful for is their MVP. The Ravens Flock has to appreciate an organization that was bold enough to go for the most exciting experiment in football. They have to respect Jackson’s work ethic, his intangibles and his other worldly talent. Mr. Jackson, this Thanksgiving we all thank you.
