Listen: Lamar Jackson, Joe Flacco And Ravens discussed on National Championship - Alabama vs. Clemson
"Its fourth and goal inside the one. Tied into this formation. Under center river. He takes the left side and nights in for the score. Los Angeles adds to its lead. I eagle had the call Westwood One. And it was all chargers late a late surge by the ravens. But in the end at twenty three to seventeen lost the under hit set came off at forty two and a half and Baltimore obviously losing outright. So they did not cover in that game. Big day for Melvin because Melvin Ingram was unblock -able for the chargers that charges defense was really impressive to me. That's the one thing that, you know. And I know what the end there was some debate as to whether Joe flacco should be putting the game or not because the margin was struggling. But I was impressed with what the chargers defense did. And you know, we talked about this last week, Tim when you have tape on a guy and Lamar Jackson as good as he is. I think he's going to be a star in this league. But he's still a rookie. He's played less than a full season. You face the same team for the second time in three weeks. They're gonna play you differently. And they were able to neutralize him because of that. It's so funny. How? On one side of the other. You are on Lamar Jackson. I'm in the middle. I think he's going to be very good. Like you. I thought he played dreadfully. He was awful. And I think he should have been pulled because you're trying to win now. Yes. And I've heard takes you a or that all you're gonna hurt his confidence. If you're worried about pulling a quarterback in the second half of a playoff game hurting your conference. Then you've got a big issue moving forward. Yes. So whether or not it was the right call because flacco hadn't played since November. I just felt like the offense was sputtering put in Joe flacco. Well at that point in the game where we've seen three quarters of Lamar Jackson be ineffective. What are you have to lose your is three of ten for twenty five yards for the Lamar Jackson's eagle? Listen at the end of the day. The goal is to win the walking. And if you come back and win jank's, then you can have a discussion starts next week. I'm going gonna not worry about bruising. This guy's ego and sacrifice perhaps winning the game. In the process. I'm not saying the ravens would have won. But but forget about hurting if Lamar Jackson. Is a team player. And by all indications. He is he could accept that decision. And then to go on the other side of the coin the raven fans booed him. What are we doing? The guy lead you to a six in one stretch back to the post season for the first time in a couple of years. That's the you know, what that is. I know it's that sentimental. There's that Super Bowl MVP on the sideline right? They're leading us back to glory. Joe? Flacco would have got us back in that game. Haunt. I tell you what I'd some guys say, you know, what I even put RG three in there. I said, sir. You didn't have a uniform on. He wasn't even active logoff. What we've hit on. The most deserves one more knock at it, Chicago, minus six and a half. But the man the myth the legend, Nick foles. They did it again, folks. Chicago."
