Seahawks’ Bobby Wagner believes Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is one of a kind
The Baltimore Ravens pulled off an incredible upset against the Seattle Seahawks as they won by two touchdowns. Lamar Jackson was a key component for that victory, and Seahawks defender Bobby Wagner believes that the young quarterback is a one-of-a-kind quarterback.
Joe Fann talked to the inside linebacker after their 16-30 loss in front of their home fans. he had nothing but nice things to say about the Baltimore Ravens’ QB1. He even went so far as to put him on a different pedestal altogether.
Bobby Wagner said that he’s never played anyone who compares to Lamar Jackson:

This is extremely high praise coming from a player of Wagner’s quality. He’s a four-time member of All-Pro first team and is one of the better defenders throughout the league. However, he wasn’t able to limit Jackson as he ran over the Seattle defense over and over again.
The most obvious reason for Jackson’s success is his running game. He’s already notched 460 rushing yards on only 69 carries. He’s beating some of the league’s better running backs with his all-around game. And this is performance is coming from a quarterback who admitted earlier in the season that he prefers to pass the ball.
This efficient running of his made the Ravens a tough team to beat, though. He wasn’t able to get his passing game together as he only managed a total of 143 yards. Moreover, his poor completion rate made his passing game a liability. His ability to scramble and escape pass rushers will be important for the Ravens’ Super Bowl hopes.
Of course, they’re still not considered as favorites at the moment. But if this run of form continues, a Super Bowl title is not far from Jackson’s future.
