Stop Calling Lamar Jackson an Elite Passer

It’s perfectly fine to say that Lamar Jackson isn’t an elite passer in the NFL. It isn’t racist and it doesn’t mean Lamar is not an MVP caliber QB, it just means that passing the football isn’t his strength, and that’s fine. He’s a good passer. He’s a better passer than any ‘running’ QB that has ever played but that doesn’t mean he is elite, so stop getting your panties in a bunch every time somebody criticizes Jackson.

Doug Gottlieb: “(Lamar Jackson) is actually not an elite passer. We have to stop lying to ourselves. Stop it. Everyone, stop it! There’s no racial implications to it...He is a good enough passer to take advantage of being the greatest running QB ever, that’s it.”
