Lamar Jackson Gets Very Honest About Ravens Future
Lamar Jackson got very honest about his Ravens future this week.
Baltimore exceeded any and all expectations in 2019 when the team battled back from a 2-2 early-season record to finish the year on a 12-game winning streak.
Although the they ultimately came up short in the AFC Divisional Round against the Tennessee Titans, the Ravens had an immensely successful year by any objective measure.
A big reason for the team having such a great year was the play of its quarterback, Jackson.
On Wednesday, Jackson spoke to the media at the Pro Bowl and was asked about he needed to improve on heading into 2020.

“Everything. I’m not the best, I’m not the greatest,” he replied.
“I’m going into my third year, and I’m trying to get somewhere. I’m trying to get to the Super Bowl.
“So I gotta work on everything.”
Jackson finished this past season with 36 touchdowns and six picks.
He ultimately led the league in touchdowns while also setting an NFL rushing record for quarterback touchdowns on the ground.
While he is clearly already one of the league’s most impressive young talents, it is nice to know that Jackson still feels like he has so much room to improve.
That said, he also has no shortage of confidence.
When pressed on how he would devise a game plan against himself, Jackson acknowledged that it would be tough.
“I’d be scared if I’m playing against myself, so I don’t know,” Jackson said.
“I’d be kind of nervous.”
