I’m not saying he’ll never be a good thrower, but I figured coming into the draft he was a two year project. I still think he is. Unless he gets killed first from running so much.

It was a fun little story up until today.

How absolutely piss-poor was the AFC wildcard series this year?

Jackson is exactly what an NFL offense looks like when a WR with somewhat of an arm is charged with Playing QB.

He is an athlete, that's it. He ran around and played QB on his athleticism 100% in college and highschool which will not work in the NFL. People talk about Trubisky being a one read and run QB, well Jackson makes one read every 5 plays and runs the rest of the time.

He has negative passing yardage going in the 4th quarter, negative, I repeat that negative. The chargers are not the 85 bears defense.

John Harbaugh is sticking with him so they get blasted and he gets fired. He wants nothing to do with him playing QB and it was forced on him.

I am still fascinated by the number of people that think you can teach QB. You can teach footwork and and fundamentals. You can't teach the entire package and that's what Jackson needs. Jackson has zero footwork, zero accuracy past 8 yards and zero ability to progress through reads and he was a first round draft pick.

And the power of the Leno jersey even effects other games too it seems.
