Lamar Jackson struggled mightily for the better part of his Baltimore Ravens’ most recent game with the Cleveland Browns. Despite throwing four interceptions, Jackson scrambled to buy time in the third quarter and found Mark Andrews in the endzone for a touchdown pass. The Ravens defeated their division rivals 16-10.

Stephen A. Smith still can’t get over the four picks Jackson threw in the game. He said he wants to see Lamar pull his talent together. Smith said on this morning’s First Take that he’ll believe in Jackson when he sees him deliver consistently and in the postseason.

“I gotta see it to believe it. I know that he is a phenomenal talent, we know that he’s en route to get ready to rush for 1,000 yards for the third consecutive year. No quarterback has done what he’s done already.

I don’t trust him, not yet. I need to see you do it in the postseason. When you are the quarterback, I need to see you throw the ball accurately on a consistent basis.”


Lamar Jackson has only won a single postseason game in his career so far. Smith may have a point about that. Lamar will have another opportunity to prove Stephen A. wrong as the Ravens continue their collision course with the playoffs.

Jackson has struggled with interceptions so far this season, throwing 12 against 15 touchdowns. His QB rating of 87.5 is far below his standard. Time will tell if he gets it together and leads the Ravens to a deep playoff run.
