Listen: Lamar Jackson, Joe Flacco And Chargers discussed on SportsCenter AllNight
"Ten Jackson throws. Small back yard line. The chargers say they have it. And the chargers do. That will bring the raven season. Chargers. Hang on for the twenty three seventeen victory. Charges will play the patriots in the divisional playoffs. Raymond's had a chance. Lamar Jackson three fumbles lost that one thirteen total fumbles since week eleven five more than any other player. Just late. I did not are floppy awfully poorly. It was a lot of things, you know, we could have did. I don't feel put us in Madison situation. Gotta move on from there. Lamar Jackson twenty five yards passing through the first three quarters. Sixty nine of his one hundred ninety four passing yards came on the final three drives his coach John Harbaugh. We were just talking about possibly all possibilities. I'm not gonna probably get into all that Peter in terms of what was said or not said, but I can assure you we were considering putting Joe in the game and all that kind of stuff. It was part of the conversation certainly thought about certainly talked about it with everybody. I'll tell you this. It was it was everybody was on the same page of what we did everybody including Joe. So that's that's that's what was that. The idea of putting Joe flacco and ultimately stay with Lamar Jackson ravens come up short or NFL primetime crew. But you heard John Harbaugh say we talked about the idea of putting Joe flacco in was it the right call for them to stick with Lamar Jackson. I believe it was the right call Lamar. There is no question that flacco right now at this stage. Lamar career is a better pass one hundred however because of Lamar's ability as a sometimes adequate passer, but a ridiculously talented runner. He's actually the more explosive player. Right. And it's not like flacco was going to be instant offense because they put him back into. Here's a reason they went to Jackson so and you saw he brought them back. So for me, I actually thought it was the right thing to do to stick with you. I couldn't agree more. Listen, he had he played in nine games. I mean, you're talking about guy just gonna walk out hadn't been in a game. It's like things are just instant all of a sudden you find the rhythm with. The receivers and and checks audibles things you've got to make it the line as much as you play. Don't discredit our game. The game of football is tough, man. And you put a lot of time you practice a lot of reps. When you're not getting those reps. They kept the right guy in win or lose with them. I mean, this is what this has been your future of your organization you understand what it was. I think they did right thing. Ravens had no points in sixty nine yards in the first half used at halftime in playoff franchise history. One game for all the marbles Monday. That's next. Sportscenter allnight. It's ESPN radio.."
