    Not interested in rushing yards in a QB. It doesn’t matter in the playoffs, passing and ability to move are the most important aspects and always will be.
    He’s not close to a top 5 QB. Sorry

    Because it doesn’t.
    It’s a great complimentary aspect, but if that’s the main aspect it’s not going to win.

    ... let's just not count what he's good at for no reason.., makes no sense. Not like he can't pass, but he can extend drives and make plays with his legs. It definitely should be a factor. Something Mills can never do.

    And he hasn't made plays in the playoffs. Plus, he has been unavailable for the last 2 years for playoff time (Ravens missed because he was injured last season.)

    A QBs job is to pass. It always will be. If that isn’t your main strength then you aren’t a top QB.
    It’s the whole reason Hurts is now a top level guy. He can beat you with his arm first.

    He woulda played this year if they signed him to a long term deal. He's making a statement

    Who's says he can't pass? Have you seen anyone drop as many passes as Hollywood brown? Dude puts it right on the money and this scrub drops it every time,

    MVP for that season, in a down year.
    He’s only gotten worse, and still not a top 5 qb in any metric or by any pundit.

    Qb's speed and willingness to run, like beauty... Fades with age.
    How do we see Lamar if he decides to be a pocket passer.
    It scares me.

    I get it. But he just missed the last 1/4 of the season due to injury. I'm speculating, but if I'm an athlete, survival and more contracts is the long game. I fear this injury at his age might play the difference between going out of bounds before the marker on 3rd down as opposed to taking the shot from the D and getting to the chains.

    Just my thought process, all of us have our thoughts on this matter.

    Baltimore I suspect will tag him anyway.

    You know, I don't want a player that quits on his teammates for selfish reasons (Deshaun Watson). Lamar Jackson is that type of player.
