Lamar Jackson deserves a lot of credit for his professional

Fresh off of a pretty successful rookie season Authentic Matt Skura Jersey , Ravens quarterback  growth, unflappable demeanor, and of course his great play on the field. While all of it should go to Lamar and Lamar alone, there have been a few quarterbacks around the league in similar positions to him who have apparently reached out to support him getting to this point.A recent piece by The Undefeated’s William C. Rhoden reveals Cam Newton to be a mentor to the 22 year old Jackson, a relationship which began thanks to a run-in between Newton and Ravens’ executive Ozzie Newsome. Ozzie recalls seeing Newton at the event who expressed interest in striking up contact with Lamar:Newton states he had been keeping a close eye on Jackson’s progress, and saw some of himself in the 2016 Heisman winner out of Louisville. Knowing a thing or two about the inherent differences a black quarterback may face entering the league, his interaction with Ozzie in order to set up some interaction with Lamar was to be a sounding board for rookie:A lot of this may sound familiar, dating back to almost a year. Bill Polian saying Lamar should play wide receiver, Lamar not running the forty yard dash in response, and on and on and on.Here we are a year later, and Jackson has more than proven he can play the quarterback position. It may be unconventional, and go against the grain of what some people may expect in a position typically predicated on prolific passing numbers, but Jackson’s first year was a success and he still has plenty of room to grow.Even being the number one pick back in 2010, Newton is all too familiar with the same type of skepticism Lamar faced:He also quelled concerns of the poor playoff showing by Jackson being some sort of referendum on the rookie’s shortcomings:The article goes on to detail a fraternity of minority quarterbacks that have come together to form support for one another and the new guard such as Newton and Jackson. This includes some very impressive names such as Warren Moon, Shack Harris, and Michael Vick.Ultimately, in Lamar’s case http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/james-hurst-jersey-cheap , he’s proven that he can play and has potential to be great in this league. The support of contemporaries such as the former MVP Newton will only make the road even easier.Five takeaways from the Ravens’ 27-14 win over the Broncos In a wild Sunday afternoon game, the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Denver Broncos 27-14. Despite how poorly the Ravens started, they found a way to battle back and take complete control. Baltimore’s offense bounced back in a big way, specifically with an improved game plan, in week three, while the defense held up well despite the absences of C.J. Mosley and Michael Pierce. 1. Marty Mornhinweg should be one of the biggest winners of week 3Similar to the Bengals’ game plan in week 2, Denver ran a fair amount of man coverage. However, unlike in Cincinnati, the Ravens’ receivers were able to create separation due to an improved scheme. They ran several high-low concepts, and their receivers had more time to get open as the protection held up nicely. Mornhinweg also made an extra effort to get Alex Collins involved in the offense. Although the pass to run ratio was still far from ideal, Collins carried the ball more times against Denver than he did in the first two weeks combined. He finished with 68 rushing yards and one touchdown. Collins also caught three passes for six yards. 2. Don’t call it a comebackJoe Flacco had one of his worst performances in recent memory last week. Blaming Flacco entirely for the collapse in Cincinnati would be inaccurate, but he was far from satisfactory. He missed on several throws, while consistently making horrible decisions with the football. Flashing forward to week three, he was seemingly a different quarterback. Although Flacco missed on a couple of throws, he made excellent decisions with the football. The Ravens’ offense did not turn the ball over. However, there were some close calls, including a Flacco fumble. Although his performances at home compared to showings on the road could be a cause for concern Youth Za'Darius Smith Jersey , Flacco rebounded well.3. The Ravens still have an issue along their offensive lineThe box score shows that Flacco was only sacked twice, but that does not tell the whole story. Baltimore’s offensive line was still an issue. Flacco was rushed on several occasions. Matt Skura, who has come under criticism early in the season, had a noteworthy performance. Currently, the Ravens’ most significant issue is left guard. Alex Lewis gave up multiple pressures, including a strip-sack. He needs to improve in pass protection. Otherwise, Baltimore will have to shake this unit up. 4. No C.J. Mosley, no Michael Pierce, no problemThe Ravens’ offense will likely receive most of the praise for this emphatic win. However, their defense should get a ton of credit. After allowing touchdowns on Denver’s first two drives, they did not allow another point. The Broncos also started inside Baltimore’s six-yard line on their first possession. Don Martindale’s defense completely stonewalled Denver’s highly ranked rushing attack, and they pressured Case Keenum early and often. On several occasions, they were unable to get to Keenum, but the Ravens’ edge rushers drew multiple holding penalties.Aside from Kenny Young, Tony Jefferson may have been the biggest standout performer. He was excellent in run-defense as he recorded five total tackles, including one for a loss. Jefferson also had a clutch pass breakup on fourth down to end the game. Linebacker Patrick Onwuasor, who lost his job to Young Womens Lamar Jackson Jersey , stepped up in Mosley’s absence. Although Peanut was solid in run-defense, his efforts in pass-defense were what made his performance more impressive. He picked off Case Keenum and would have scored if not for a Matthew Judon penalty. 5. The Ravens are already seeing their 2018 draft class paying dividendsThe Ravens finished the 2018 NFL Draft with 12 new players, and with nine of them on the active roster, it was expected that more than a few would make a significant impact this season. Despite only six 2018 draft picks being active in week three — Lamar Jackson, Kenny Young, Bradley Bozeman, Mark Andrews, Orlando Brown Jr., and Zach Sieler — the Ravens saw a couple of rookies make significant contributions.Kenny Young was all over the field. His sideline to sideline speed was on full display as he was excellent in both run defense and coverage. Young finished with a team-high ten tackles, including one for a loss. His ability to cover tight ends and running backs will only help Baltimore moving forward.After selecting Hayden Hurst with the 25th overall pick, the expectation was that he would emerge as Flacco’s ‘security blanket.’ With Hurst on the sidelines due to a stress fracture in his foot, Mark Andrews was in line for a larger role, and he has taken full advantage. Andrews had a touchdown last week, and he followed that performance up with a two-catch 59-yard showing.
