Colin Cowherd: “The Lamar Jackson situation is a mess, it’s gotten very noisy. Let me give you a list of ‘noisy’ quarterbacks in the last year, for a variety of reasons. Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson— none of them are ascending. Let me give you another list of ‘noisy’ quarterbacks whose careers should have lasted a lot longer: Baker Mayfield, Johnny Manziel, Cam Newton… The only thing noisy about Patrick Mahomes is his brother and that’s it. ‘Noisy’ does not win games and I think it hurts Lamar. I think people are worried about it, and I think he’s being punished because the current momentum of ‘noisy’— Kyler, Aaron, and Russell has not been good. Aaron couldn’t make the playoffs, tire fire in Arizona. Go look at the list of noisy quarterbacks, they’re not ascending. Jalen Hurts, Joe Burrow, I don’t get any of that. Head down, totally focused. The noisier the young quarterback the less I like it. Bryce Young and CJ Stroud are really quiet. Stars in high school and college and you didn’t hear a peep. Wins games, coachable, gets better. Does Lamar have someone in his social circle who is like ‘bro, this is not a good look.’ Agents usually shield you from this kind of nonsense. Agents are paid to get the noise away from you. He doesn’t have an agent so the noise is funneling right toward him. On the heels of Aaron’s noise, Kyler’s noise, people are like ‘no, thank you.’ Go find Jalen Hurts. Hard-working, doubted, second-round, aspirational, coachable, you’re looking at a star. It kind of felt like Lamar WAS that for three years, but whatever has happened is not good. No disrespect to his mom but you gotta hire a real agent, they keep you out of all this trouble.” (Full Segment Above)
