When you can't win an argument because Lamar Jackson sucks -- go for the classic bot accusation, amirite? ;)
Pretty sure you're missing the joke here. Your table didn't resolve into anything readable.

Lamar is 38-13 in his career.
He had an amazing 19-3 start -- now he's accrued 10 losses in the last three seasons, six since 2021.

Some of that is the defense declining dramatically, however, he's also declined precipitously from his 22 year-old 8.02 ANY/A performance.

I'm not a Lamar lover because I think his ceiling is limited because he's not the best passer, (that hail mary effort was so weak) but he's still a top QB in the league because he can run 80 yard TDs. But that speed won't last forever.

But he's better than those scrubs people listed.

I can almost sorta kinda nearly see picking Jalen Hurts over Lamar... but taking Matt Ryan over Lamar? Hahahahahahaha. Maybe if you haven't watched Ryan play a down since 2019.
I'm kind of surprised no one picked on the Matt Ryan selection first -- that was waay more questionable, I agree.

In terms of passing, Ryan was overall slightly better than Lamar in 2021 -- which speaks more to Lamar's atrocious 2021 line.

22nd in completion percentage
30th in interception rate
30th in sack percentage
17th in total picks
17th in adjusted yards per attempt
15th in net yards per attempt
20th in ANY/A

Lamar Jackson has already won one MVP and after his 2022 start, he's right in the discussion again. Jalen Hurts needs to throw 14 more TDs to equal Lamar's total in his singular MVP season. No NFL GM would take Hurts over Lamar today. Zero.

Lamar is only a year older. This seems like a silly question. Fully agree with you.

Its been two starts -- one of which he lost. I think its a little early.

In any case, several QBs in the AFC are outperforming him so far this year -- including the one that just beat him.

Tough spot for Jimmy, but since the rain started he's been about as bad as Lance looked last week. Missing both high and short on various throws.

Update - Russell Wilson is now 8/22 with an INT but the Broncos just fucked up again on a 4th and 2, took a delay of game after lining up for a FG….then punted

Denver just used its last timeout with 7:38 left in the game - most likely won’t matter because the Texans are hot trash on offense but it’s bad

What are the odds Hackett tries to call one from the sidelines anyway?
