Lamar Jackson Is the James Harden of the NFL

Doug often sees the world in terms of ‘comps’ (as in comparables) and he sees a lot of James Harden in Ravens QB Lamar Jackson. They both have a ridiculous amount of talent putting them at the top of their sports in terms of their ability to play the game, but they have both struggled to be consistently successful in the postseason. They are nearly unstoppable during the regular season but are perpetually poor playoff performers.

Doug Gottlieb: “I personally think (Lamar Jackson) is the parallel of a James Harden...I think the way in which he plays in the regular season is maybe different than what it takes to survive and succeed in the postseason.”
